"...Wilson Jones, designer for Monsterbit Media (http://monsterbit.com/mb.html ) - the Internet site that Sincola and a number of other local bands call "home page" - finds himself frustrated with the limits of today's technology, and of the Net surfers' attention spans. Since the Web was created, the number of what he calls "cardboard postcards in space" has multiplied far beyond the point where a band can simply have such a page available and expect people to "ooh" and "aah" at it..."

"...In Lee Blessing's play, newlywed journalists have the job of recording Reach's story, and as they do, they see Reach treat each life as though he owns it. The script prompts thought about hotbed issues - the First Amendment, the legal system, the media, the American penchant for a heady brew of sex and violence, and Michael Stuart - director, set designer, and lighting designer, creates an appro-priate look for the show..."

"...The 2012 Fusebox Festival was over, and I was in charge of the SVT lobby gallery – I was and am its curator, its organizer, its pimp, as I have been since Larson offered me the position in 2011. And the next gallery show after Beeler's "Food Porn" exhibition was coming in – as preceded by prints from Tim Doyle and originals by Chronicle Arts Editor Robert Faires and the patriotic array of the "Presidential Losers" show; as followed by the photography of Shelley Hiam and the surreal Old Mastery oils of Alonso Rey and the mixed-media portraits of Beth Consetta Rubel and the woodcuts of Laura Thoms, the abstracts of Roy Moore, the aquatic emplushenings of Kristin Hogan..."
"...Unfortunately, soul music didn't exactly beat a path anywhere in 1997, leaving just as it did in 1977 two distinct musical movements at loggerheads: English pop and American roots music. There was all that talk about women and Lilith, and the media-blitzed still in all likelihood missed Loreena McKennit's superb The Book of Secrets, Chantal Kreviazuk's Under These Rocks, Beth Orton's Trailer Park, and even k.d..."

"...To support this new perspective, a variety of media are represented, including film by Jean Renoir, jazz by Duke Ellington and Jelly Roll Morton, and rare footage of the Parisian vaudeville performer Josephine Baker. Photographer James VanDerZee documents the Harlem streets while Carl Van Vecten, a white New Yorker, adds a touch of celebrity with shots of Billie Holiday and the writer Zora Neale Hurston..."
"...If a neighbor wants to use an herbicide to kill weeds adjacent to your drinking water well, have you truly reached a compromise if you convince the neighbor to use less of the herbicide when even a little of the herbicide is probably going to pollute your water? Would it be a better compromise to remove the weeds by a non-toxic means? Or would it be a better solution for everyone to acknowledge that the weeds aren't hurting anyone and leave them as they are? The point is, many people, including his sometimes allies, seem to vilify Bill Bunch because his definition of compromise is not the same as theirs. Too many of our leaders and too much of our media would have us believe that the very act of compromise is a good thing...."

"...Six months later, they walked off with Best Indie Band at the Austin Music Awards, and when the group's release show for its eponymous debut sold out Antone's last fall, they finessed rave reviews (see "Texas Platters," Dec. 24, 2010) and year-end accolades from radio, print, and Web media, backed up by an avid following that landed them a headlining gig at the Parish on New Year's Eve..."

"...I am deeply offended by the countless innuendoes in the liberal-socialist media that Christians, especially those who voted for President Bush, are selfish, ignorant, uncaring. This is the slander from the pro-abortionists, the pro-gay movement, from the anti-religious church and state separationists, and the liberal establishment...."

"...Before that, its luster had been dimmed considerably by a bitter feud between onetime partners Mickey Gilley and Sherwood Cryer, who once agreed to split everything the club made 50-50, and wound up agreeing on not much at all. To top it off, Gilley's was located at ground zero of a devastating early-Eighties oil bust, something Pasadena -- a blue-collar patchwork of strip malls, subdivisions, refineries, and pipeline immediately southeast of Houston -- felt even more acutely than the rest of the Greater Houston sprawl...."
