Butch Camp
And here I thought everybody had forgotten about comedian Judy Tenuta. Boy, was I wrong. This alternately hilarious and annoying take on sexual stereotypes gives the brash, unrelentingly loud Tenuta...
Film Review  October 3, 1997, by Marc Savlov
"...In portraying the character of Matt Grabowski, Denniston uses the audience's preconceived notions about sexual politics to his advantage, both humorously and otherwise. Butch Camp follows the somewhat meek Grabowski as he struggles to assert himself in a world of crass, boisterous breeders..."

Get Bound With Butch Feelings
Free & Queer Cinema gets ready to outdo herself Tuesday night
DAILY The Gay Place  January 13, 2014, by Sarah Marloff

Hot Butch on Butch Action
AfterEllen came up with a list of "The Top 15 Hottest Butches," and all's we got was this lousy chain wallet. Sister, please.
DAILY The Gay Place  July 16, 2007, by Kate X Messer
"...Obviously the panel who came up with The Top 15 Hottest Butches on AfterEllen has never been to Texas. We'll give them No..."

God's Own Clothesline
In Search of Far Flung Adventures With Butch Hancock
Music Story  May 15, 1998, by Christopher Hess
"...Did you see Butch? He was just here," said Zenna through the whiny strains of an acoustic guitar coming from the tape deck behind the bar and the blue haze of a hand-rolled cigarette. "You should meet him, he's a wonderful guy..."

You Coulda Walked Around the World
The LBJ of Lone Star songwriters lays siege to the Cactus Cafe
Music Story  August 20, 2010, by Raoul Hernandez
"...In 1997, the year Butch Hancock released his first of only two solo albums since then, You Coulda Walked Around the World, my onetime $105-a-month Hyde Park abode dilapidated into a pile worth being sold and turned – same as a recent romance. A year or two later, in a newly mortgaged house I'd never envisioned, You Coulda Walked Around the World soothed me time and again..."

Sam Shepard stars in this film which imagines what might have happened if Butch Cassidy had survived and lived on in Bolivia.
Film Review  October 21, 2011, by Marc Savlov
"...What if Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid hadn't died at the end of George Roy Hill's genre-redefining 1969 classic, but instead lived on – one of them, anyway – in the Bolivian backcountry? That's the intriguing and grittily realized premise of Mateo Gil's film, an elegiac take on the great American Western that sees Butch living to a ripe old age (under the alias James Blackthorn), smoking cheroots and horse-ranching his way to a potentially far more peaceful ending than the fusillade of Bolivian army lead envisioned by Hill and history...."

The Devil in Us All
Butch Hancock, like Leo Tolstoy and Bob Dylan, takes on this political world
Music Story  October 6, 2006, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Butch Hancock lets out a laugh at the 2-inch thick, 700-page (abridged) literary classic thrown down on a small wooden table in the Threadgill's World Headquarters beer garden, not yet opened at 10am one balmy Friday...."

Stuck in the Middle
With Julie Goldman, how butch is too butch? How rough is too rough?
Arts Story  April 26, 2013, by Kate X Messer

Pariah tells the specific but universal story of a black teenage girl who is a virginal lesbian, budding writer, and nonconformist.
Film Review  January 13, 2012, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Laura introduces Alike to the bar scene and teaches the neophyte how to dress and hit on women. But the strict butch-and-femme profiles that dominate the club scene prove uncomfortable for Alike, who identifies with neither role and doesn’t yet know that she needn’t shoehorn herself into things that don’t fit..."

Hard Listening
Reviewing Butch Hancock's winter tour of Texas.
DAILY Music  January 18, 2011, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Butch Hancock’s winter tour of Texas equaled exactly two concerts this past weekend. Which is probably for the best..."

The Brothers Bloom
Adrien Brody and Mark Ruffalo are cast as the best con men in the world whose current swindle involves an eccentric heiress (Rachel Weisz) in this sophomore effort by the writer/director of Brick.
Film Review  May 29, 2009, by Kimberley Jones
"...His nervy debut, Brick, was a high school suburban noir: Dashiell Hammett in the mouths of babes and a house of cards fixed to tumble at the first strong wind (surprise: it never did). His follow-up, a con-man caper with the spiritual prints of Paper Moon, Butch Cassidy, and Boris and Natasha, isn’t as strenuously cerebral as Brick – still, gold stars for anybody who catches the filmmaker’s references to Joyce and Homer – nor does it, in the end, altogether hang together..."

Imagine Me & You
A traditional romantic comedy with a lesbian twist, Imagine Me and You has its charms, but for a movie about loving radically, it sure plays it safe.
Film Review  February 10, 2006, by Marrit Ingman
"...3: Broody bride sees attractive stranger at the wedding, questions the possibility of Love at First Sight. The wrinkle here is that the attractive stranger is Luce (Headey), the soft-butch florist..."

There's much to like about Bandits, Barry Levinson's new film about a romantic triangle that blossoms among a pair of gentlemen bank robbers and a suburban housewife who has grown...
Film Review  October 12, 2001, by Marc Savlov
"...Hilarity and heartbreak ensue. Levinson is parsing familiar material here, so much so that its not going too far to say this is a “reimagining” of George Roy Hill's iconic Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid..."

The Girl
Leave it to the French to come up with this erotically charged but intellectually shaped contribution to lesbian noir. A trail of cigarette smoke snaking through the film's opening credits...
Film Review  June 15, 2001, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...The characters do not even possess names. The movie begins as we're introduced to a butch woman we come only to know as the Painter (de la Boulaye)..."

The Way of the Gun
It should be obvious that a movie called The Way of the Gun is an unrepentantly violent and remorseless tale, as is fitting for a story about a couple of...
Film Review  September 8, 2000, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Others who view The Way of the Gun as a Tarantino-esque knockoff are unlikely to discover the originality of this story's unremitting bad guys. Phillippe and Del Toro play opportunistic criminals named Parker and Longbaugh (the real surnames of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid), who overhear a conversation about a nine-months-pregnant surrogate mother (Juliette Lewis)..."

Late Bloomers
I've known so many gay people who are reduced to honking, snuffling emotional wreckage by the most saccharine hetero romance films that one has to wonder: Why are same-sex love...
Film Review  June 27, 1997, by Russell Smith
"...Roosevelt High (an example of the droll throwaway humor with which the script is laced) where basketball coach/math teacher Dinah Groshardt and secretary Carly Lumkin both labor. Dinah (Nelson) is a no-nonsense, rather butch woman whose only obvious passion is for hoops..."

Nothing in this film is serious, from the dialogue to the in-jokes to the costumes, everything is played for subtle laughs. As an updated version of the old western TV...
Film Review  May 27, 1994, by Marc Savlov
"...Director Donner made his name with action films, and it shows: maybe the only things this film does take deadly serious are its back-to-back stunts. Certainly, much of the movie's wit and style stem from screenwriter William Goldman, who won an Academy Award in 1969 for his Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid script..."

Forbidden Love
Forbidden Love... the movie's title echoes those found on the lurid covers of the lesbian pulp novels popular in the Fifties and SIxties. This Canadian film, through interviews and dramatic...
Film Review  July 23, 1993, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Their testimonies point out many of the implicit differences due to class, age and familial background. Some critique the butch/femme role-playing of the period, some speak of the intolerance suffered, some tell of police raids, most recount their comings out..."

A Few Good Men
Melodrama doesn't come more butch than this, and the performances reflect that intensity, although Aaron Sorkin's moral predicaments are given full scrutiny.
Film Review  December 11, 1992, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...To the movie's credit, Moore's role, though a transparent move to add some female presence, refrains from becoming a love story subplot. A Few Good Men is a decidedly butch melodrama and the performances reflect that intensity..."

My Father Is Coming
An immigrant actress' father visits her from Germany and does better in America than she – plus he begins to date Annie Sprinkle.
Film Review  May 22, 1992, by Kathleen Maher
"...However, Vickie and the city of New York confront him with a lot to accept. To maintain her cozy bourgeois fantasy, Vickie asks her flamingly gay roommate to “act butch” and pose as her husband.This ploy meets with very limited success..."

Young Soul Rebels
It's the summer of 1977, the week of the Queen's Silver Jubilee, a high point of pre-Thatcher British nationalist fervor. In the poor East End of London, a couple of...
Film Review  January 31, 1992, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Add to this highly charged picture of racial relations a further layer of sexual politics. Chris, a mulatto who is pretty boy straight, and Caz, who is gay butch, have been best friends since childhood and though the sexual tensions between them are minimal yet potent, the politics of difference surround them everywhere..."

Thelma & Louise
Thelma (Davis) and Louise (Sarandon) take off for a weekend vacation. They stop for drinks at a roadside joint (where the bar band consists of Charlie Sexton and crew) and...
Film Review  May 24, 1991, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Director Scott here reveals a heretofore undisclosed talent for comic timing and, of equal surprise, keeps his propensity for power-packed imagery (Blade Runner, Alien, Black Rain) in check and at the service of the story. Thelma & Louise is going to be compared to a lot of things before its run its through: a female road movie, a women's buddy/adventure film, a female Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid..."

Right Where They Belong
Raoul Hernandez goes on tour with the Flatlanders
Music Story  July 26, 2002, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Jimmie Dale Gilmore, center, and Butch Hancock, stage right, step forward into amplification, and with Ely, boom the campfire chorus of "Right Where I Belong."..."

"...(Well, not anymore. But 25 years ago, when I met Butch Hancock, I weighed about 125 pounds, really skinny.) It was the sense I had of him..."

A Perfect World
Shot in and around Austin, Eastwood's first film after his Oscar-sweep with Unforgiven is a taut, occasionally touching chase film that pits a prison escapee/kidnapper (Costner) against a Texas Ranger (Eastwood) in 1963 Texas.
Film Review  November 26, 1993, by Marc Savlov
"...Shot in and around Austin last summer (for all two of you who didn't already know), Eastwood's first film since the Oscar-sweeping Unforgiven is a taut, occasionally touching chase film that pits prison escapee/kidnapper Costner against Texas Ranger Eastwood in 1963 Texas. Having broken free from the Huntsville pen along with a morally bankrupt crony, Butch Haynes (Costner) kidnaps young Philip Perry (Lowther) during a botched attempt at car theft..."

Was your Style Avatar caught throwing down with Wilford Brimley(?!) in the grocery store parking lot? Or is it a case of mistaken identity?!
Columns  December 9, 2005, by Stephen MacMillan Moser
"...She became panicky and began rubbing at the mark with her thumb. Then Wilford Brimley and his butch little female troll showed up – at least it looked like Wilford Brimley, but we'll just call them not-Wilford and Butch..."

See where Austin ranks in a national list of most creative cities and then wonder why Dallas also made the list once you find out that the cheesy reality TV show Cheaters is based there …
Columns  June 14, 2002, by Stephen MacMillan Moser
"...A recent scenario involves a large woman of low self-esteem and uncertain appeal (we'll call her "Baby") who suspects that her cracker boyfriend (we'll call him "Bubba") is cheating on her. She allowed Cheaters to place a camera in the home that she shares with a female roommate (we'll call her "Butch," a tough-as-nails looking creature, whom we're surprised to find has any interest in men at all)..."

The Flatlanders' collective voice of experience still dares the odds and rings true.
Columns  July 26, 2002, by Michael Ventura
"...Near the Troubadour in West Hollywood -- a stone's easy throw (if you could find a stone) from a sign announcing the boundary of Beverly Hills -- Butch Hancock peered into a vending machine to take a closer look at a headline in the San Fernando Valley Daily News. Something about more suffering in Afghanistan..."

These Lubbock friends of mine were always writing books – thick notebooks of drawings and words
Columns  March 16, 2007, by Michael Ventura
"...Jesse Taylor (may he rest in peace) played his last hometown gig the night after. Many of the bunch we call "14th Street" showed up for the screening, and it was weird, it was flat-out weird to see that old brick house on 14th and Avenue W up there on the big screen with its most famous residents – Joe Ely, Butch Hancock, Jimmie Dale Gilmore..."

Plunkett & Macleane
I always worry when a film's press kit trumpets the director's grand work in the world of television commercials; it seems to me that's something you'd want to cover up,...
Film Review  October 1, 1999, by Marc Savlov
"...All of this is set to a background of muddy knickers and ample, heaving bosoms. Scott, like his forbears, steals from the best -- there are elements of everything from Bonnie and Clyde to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid on display here, usually to good visual effect (if not much else)..."

Austin's evolution of drag
Columns  August 10, 2017, by Sarah Marloff
"...Butch Queen – the drag competition which pairs newbie queens with local pros – has teamed with Sound on Sound Festival and Mohawk to put on their biggest, most epic drag show yet (see Friday). Creators Jeremy von Stilb (aka Mouthfeel) and goth goddess Louisianna Purchase decided to shake up the playing field by drafting unexpected performers including Erica Nix, Dan Fin, Dr..."

Austin's Own Top Femme!
Local Lisa makes good. Good femme cake.
DAILY The Gay Place  December 5, 2007, by Kate X Messer

Conflicts and Contradictions
The Choices of Terry Allen
Music Story  February 16, 1996, by Lee Nichols
"...He also doesn't completely fit in with the Lubbock expatriates; unlike Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Butch Hancock et al., he didn't join the mass musician migration to Austin, choosing instead to head west for Los Angeles. He didn't pursue a music career as ardently as they did, either, which leads to the most profound contradiction in Allen's life -- his dual artistic identities..."

(Tom) Petty Fest
‘Southern Accents’ pack the Mohawk
DAILY Music  September 26, 2013, by Chase Hoffberger
"...Names lower on the marquee ended up leaving as much of an impression as the ones on top. Adriel Denae held her own alongside Jones on “Wildflowers,” Butch Walker got high energy on “Even the Losers” and “The Waiting,” and Nashville fireball Ruby Amanfu lit up local guitar hero Charlie Sexton on a rousing rendition of “Honey Bee.” She returned to duet with Willie Nelson’s kid Lukas on “Don’t Come Around Here No More” and played the role of Last Waltz-era Mavis Staples on all-for-one closer “Free Fallin’.”..."

Film Review  April 14, 2000, by Marc Savlov
"...It's a cute backstory, and it fits nicely with Henry's present sad state of affairs -- the downturned mouth, the vapid, shuttered gaze. He's old Butch Cassidy, alive to see another day, though not a good one..."

Son of the Circus
Twistin' in the Wind
Music Story  October 2, 1998, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Even if audiences, Austin or otherwise, never get a chance to see Small Town Girl, a Joe Sears production put on for invitation-only audiences out at Willie Nelson's place this past weekend, the 51-year-old Ely has nevertheless spent the lion's share of his life tearing up audiences worldwide. Whether accompanied only by an acoustic guitar, paired with fellow Flatlanders Gilmore and Butch Hancock, or more likely, as leader of one of his many hard honky-tonkin' bands, Joe Ely has never delivered one of his Micheneresque tales of Texas with anything less than full, unbridled passion; a firebrand, that Ely, a tornado under the spotlight in the center ring -- a force of nature to be reckoned with, whether he was Down on the Drag, Lord of the Highway, or Live at Liberty Lunch..."

"...It was those concerns about safety, says APD Assistant Chief Sean Mannix, that prompted APD detective Shannon Dowell to get involved last December in constructing a series of lockboxes eventually used by the eight protesters arrested for wearing them at the Port of Houston. Dowell (known to protesters originally as "Butch") was working undercover within the Occupy Austin movement..."
