Food Story  August 23, 2018, by Aaron Teel
"...Constantly on the move, Rosarito's Baja-style taco and ceviche trucks are making fresh waves in a scene grown somewhat stagnant with oversaturation. In 2014, when Carlos Acosta and his cousin Mauricio Davila first parked their brightly painted taco truck alongside the other food trucks then lining the empty lot at the southwest corner of Fifth and Colorado, they were just hoping to find their place in Austin's crowded taco scene, and to offer, as Acosta says, "a different kind of Mexican food from what [people are] accustomed to in Texas."..."

Queer filmmaking panel highlights Texas talent
Screens Story  February 11, 2016, by Sean L. Malin
"...While some of the filmmakers participating in this explosive moment for queer media exhibit a contagious hopefulness and energy, Tan – a legend in Austin for his award-winning graphic design business Otto Is the One – is appropriately skeptical: "It's still hard for LGBT filmmakers to make their next films ... if your films or themes are niche-oriented, people are not rushing out to make them."
