"...If there is any justice in this world – there usually isn't – then Will Johnson will become as well-known for his painting as he is for his music. As a solo artist and member of Centro-matic, Monsters of Folk, and South San Gabriel, Johnson has forged a formidable music career, but also finds the time to explore visual art..."
"...Will Johnson is a man of many talents. Known primarily as the driving force behind Centro-matic and South San Gabriel and for having played alongside Jim James, Conor Oberst, Mike Mogis, and M..."
"...The first volume of Robert Caro's protracted meditation on the dark side of Lyndon Johnson, The Years of Lyndon Johnson: The Path to Power, was published 20 years ago to almost universal acclaim. There was plenty about Caro's portrait of the young man on the make to offend Johnson loyalists, but his vivid presentation of the Texas Hill Country in the pre-electric era and his finely drawn character sketch of LBJ's political mentor, U.S..."
"...Though Robert Johnson had been dead for 37 years by the time Antone's opened in 1975, the delta bluesman has put in anniversary appearances. One of his two existing images graced the 15th anniversary poster, and Buddy Guy performed his song "Sweet Home Chicago" as part of the club's 20-year celebration and corresponding live release..."
"...Sci-fi time-twister Looper may be the kind of genre movie that comes around once a generation and rewrites the rules, straight from the noir-fueled brain of writer-director Rian Johnson. "Noir gives you an opportunity to bring out the good and the bad in people."..."
"...Starring: Cedric the Entertainer, Vanessa Williams, Bow Wow, Shannon Elizabeth, Steve Harvey and Solange Knowles. Borrowing the concept from the National Lampoon series from the Eighties starring Chevy Chase, Johnson Family Vacation substitutes the Johnsons for the Griswold family and the increasingly popular Cedric the Entertainer in the amiable Chase role as the ineffectual paterfamilias..."
"..."I remember in college leafing through an Artforum and not feeling too excited about anything," recalls Bethany Johnson, whose technically precise drawings of multilayered imagery were on view a couple months ago in her Justin Lane studio during the West Austin Studio Tour. "I finally found an image I liked, and it was an advertisement, featuring a schematic drawing of the gears of a watch..."
"...Having canceled last weekend's games due to the tragic and untimely death of head coach Dennis Johnson, the Toros return to the hardwood this Thursday facing the Colorado 14ers, 7pm at the Convention Center in Downtown Austin.

"...This is an interview with Mat Johnson, who wrote the acclaimed Pym – which is somehow a popular favorite and a cult favorite, simultaneously, we'd swear – and who is most recently author of the novel Loving Day, which we've reviewed right here, just out via the Spiegel & Grau imprint of Penguin Random House...."
"...Next week marks the one-year anniversary of the death of Dennis Johnson. Barely 52 at the time, Johnson, a former NBA All-Star and Finals MVP, was in the middle of his second season as coach of the Toros when he suffered a heart attack and collapsed outside team practice at the Austin Convention Center on February 22. In honor of their former coach, the Toros are hosting a special pair of back-to-back home games this weekend..."

"...What looked promising against OU? Fozzy Whittaker ran the ball as well as a UT ball carrier has this season, which is faint praise, but praise all the same. Cody Johnson suddenly came semi-alive in the fourth quarter..."
"...There currently is not a spread on this game due VY's day-to-day status, but I'd have to guess the Titans would be a couple-point favorite with VY playing and the Texans would a couple-point favorite with Collins as their starting QB. My prediction is that the Texans will lose no matter who the Titans play behind center. With a nonexistent running game and the absence of their best player, Andre Johnson, Houston is going to have a hard time moving the ball against the Titans tough D..."

"...In her autobiography, Stolen Life, Canadian Cree Yvonne Johnson spares little in the telling of her life of abuse, incest, rape, physical deformity, poverty, and crime. Yet Johnson, who won't be eligible for parole until 2014, doesn't point fingers, make excuses, or otherwise deny guilt for the murder that got her a life sentence..."
"...Eric Johnson is all over the Web. Of course, you have to do a little judicious surfing but the first place to get your feet wet is at http://www.ericjohnson.com, the official Eric Johnson website..."
"...When the G3 tour featuring Eric Johnson, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and Adrian Legg kicks off in Concord, California on October 11 most Austinites won't be there to take note that Johnson's rhythm section has changed. Instead of longtime trio-mates Kyle Brock and Tommy Taylor on bass and drums respectively, look for studio and tour mercenary Brannen Temple on drums and Tones-era bassist Roscoe Beck (last seen with Robben Ford) to fill those spots..."
"...Austin Independent School District Chief Financial Officer Nicole Conley Johnson has been appointed by House Speaker Joe Straus to the new Texas Commission on Public School Finance.

"...The antics of Irvin are just the tip of the iceberg. The ‘Boys replaced the only coach they had ever known, the legendary and Bible-fearing Tom Landry, with the egomaniacal Jimmy Johnson, whose interests included listening to Barbra Streisand, violent movies, white shag carpet, and the consumption of cold Heineken..."

"...Monsarrat, I'm very glad to know that you have this incredible vision into the Arab mentality and their reasons for hating our government or us ["Postmarks Online," June 17]. Have you actually been there or did you figure all of this out from your home in Johnson City? Could it have anything to do with our country (which used to be considered the good guys by most of the world) invading and occupying a foreign country without being provoked, based on speculative intelligence, a president with a personal agenda, and reasons given to us 16 months ago that turned out to be mostly simple lies..."
"...Many of the guests spoke fondly of their memories of the Austin barbecue field trip in the summer of 2002, and it was gratifying to see Austin restaurateur Hoover Alexander take a well-deserved place on the SFA board of directors. Former Chronicle contributor Pableaux Johnson was in attendance, and I was able to reconnect with him over lunch one day..."
"...Peters arrived in Austin to head the TFPF along with friend Jerry Johnson, who took over the daily programming duties.

"...Tim Kerr – himself no small figure in Austin's musical culture (Big Boys, Poison 13, Bad Mutha Goose, et al.) – did the artistic honors with the Wells mural, after being commissioned for the project by the home's owner, Paul K Johnson. The piece made its debut in early January, and now Willie Wells watches over the home of his youth and old age next door..."

"...Texas RioGrande Legal Aid attorney D'Ann Johnson has been working with Las Lomitas residents and says it appears that not all of the lots face the same hurdles. Indeed, seven properties on the edge of the subdivision don't appear to share plat restrictions that would limit their neighbors in terms of both housing type (single family, which not all of the lots in the subdivision currently host) and septic construction..."
