Eating Bugs Is the Future of Sustainable Farming?
Austin entomophagy advocates bring the crispy, crunchy taste of crickets to the masses
Food Story  February 14, 2019, by Jessi Devenyns
"...Folks like Lenoir [too]," said RNA. Salt & Time also tried their hand at insect charcuterie when "they did a mortadella with toasted crickets instead of toasted pistachios." Although there are tens of thousands of edible insect species, crickets really steal the show..."

DAILY Music  December 7, 2016, by Abby Johnston

Love Is All Around
Tracking Sonny Curtis and his tall, West Texas tales
Music Story  October 15, 2004, by Raoul Hernandez
"...In Dallas, as a matter of fact, Page's vintage rendition of Sage cover "Ghost Riders in the Sky" almost steals Curtis' well-manicured acoustic thunder on "I Fought the Law." Recorded in 1959, days after Buddy Holly's funeral, "I Fought the Law" appeared on the Crickets' post-Holly debut, In Style With the Crickets. J.I..."

Music Story  February 25, 2005, by Jim Caligiuri
"...The queen of "folkabilly" will be returning to Austin to headline the Austin Music Awards March 16.

Robert Nathan Allen Wants You to Eat Some Bugs
And you could, too – especially this Saturday in Zilker Park
DAILY Food  June 26, 2013, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"... "And I got in touch with Harmon Johar of World Entomophagy – he was finishing school at the University of Georgia at the time – and his goal was to be the first large-scale producer of food-grade insects. Not the mealworms and crickets that you can buy in bulk from growers who provide to pet stores or for chicken feed, but a standard, hygienic, organic, human-consumption-grade insect..."

Learning the Game
Learning Buddy Holly's game, 203 tracks at a time
Music Story  February 5, 2010, by Raoul Hernandez
"..."I Gambled My Heart" is ground zero for Not Fade Away in terms of the Buddy Holly warble (soon to be hiccup). Future Crickets drummer and mainstay to this day Jerry Allison appears next – just in time for first memorable "Down the Line," its solo evoking Bill Haley's "Rock Around the Clock" and its rhythm courtesy of Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, and the Southern Pacific Railroad..."

The shock of the new collides with centuries of meditative tradition in Zhang's simple, affecting tale of the final days of a Beijing bathhouse. Slated to be torn down to...
Film Review  August 18, 2000, by Marc Savlov
"...Slated to be torn down to make way for urban renewal (“I heard they're building a high-rise,” says one patron. “Really?” says another, “I thought they were building a shopping mall.” Such is progress.), wizened Master Liu's (Zhu) communal, males-only bathhouse is part town hall, part gruff men's club, where locals, young and old, come to soak in warm waters, have the knots in their muscles beaten out, and pass the time drinking tea and sparring with caged crickets..."

The Hightower Report
Bugs Benedict? Bee Stroganoff?; and Tea Party Toys With Consumer Protection
News Column  April 29, 2011, by Jim Hightower
"...By "forefront," he's talking about waaay out there – all the way to buffalo worms, locusts, caterpillars, crickets, and other insects for human consumption. Just as the American West had its cowboys, this new food world will have bug boys wrangling great herds of crawling and squirming critters to market..."

Super Troopers 2
Vermont's finest return, and this time they're Canadian.
Film Review  April 27, 2018, by Marc Savlov
"...And yet … you have to applaud the gang’s perseverance in the face of the sound of crickets chirruping in the Vermont woods when they pitched the film to various studios over the years. That’s also a key aspect to why I barely managed a chortle: Super Troopers 2 is a movie out of time and out of sync with comedy in 2018..."

Rough Night
Girls gone murderously wild
Film Review  June 23, 2017, by Steve Davis
"...(Think of it as Weekend at Bernie’s, but with a hot dead guy.) Directed by Broad City alum Lucia Aniello, Rough Night briefly gallops when these girls-gone-wild party, but once things take that unfortunate turn, the movie goes flat-footed: Logic dissipates and transitions stumble. A side narrative in which the bride-to-be’s sweet but wimpy fiancé dons adult diapers and snorts meth in a gas station convenience store on his way to rescue his beloved is so misconceived, you can hear the crickets chirp...."

Two missionaries in feudal Japan are tested
Film Review  January 6, 2017, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Silence bears a similarity to the more theological films of Robert Bresson and Carl Theodor Dreyer, works described as “transcendental cinema” in an important essay by Paul Schrader. The opening sequence sets the film’s overall tone as the sound of crickets gives way to the thick fog that will come to envelope so many of the scenes..."

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip
Call the exterminator: The tuneful rodents are back

Film Review  December 18, 2015, by Josh Kupecki
"...Benson pursues Alvin and the gang through the South as they make mischief and butcher songs with their trademark helium-pitched vocal aesthetic (I could have gone my whole life without hearing them cover DJ Snake/Lil Jon’s “Turn Down for What,” but alas, I am now marked). The humor mostly adheres to the usual fart jokes that every third-grader loves, but then what to make of an inexplicable cameo from trash-cinema king John Waters, and a subsequent joke about his dogshit-eating masterpiece Pink Flamingos? (Crickets in the theatre when that one dropped, btw.) As directed by Walt Becker (who, it must be stated, unleashed onto the world the sad, middle-aged actor ennui of both Wild Hogs and Old Dogs), Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip has sporadic laughs for the under-10 set and absolutely nothing for the poor parents sitting next to them..."

Take a Walk on the Wild Side
The ancient art of foraging for food is aged to perfection
Food Story  April 4, 2014, by Jessi Cape
"...And as a major bonus, because foraging requires reaching, squatting, walking, crawling, and other physical exertions, it is inevitable that bugs will be unearthed. Score! Foraged insects like grasshoppers, crickets, grubs, and caterpillars are becoming increasingly relevant in discussions of sustainable global food sources...."
