Meet Beatrice.
Born in New York and raised in California, Beatrices childhood dream was to be a ventriloquist. As a kid, she would make her mom take her to the library so she could borrow ventriloquism videos to study.Theyre the weirdest people, she says, and I felt that that was my kind of community.She went on to study Sociology and Drama at a university in Colorado, and then completed her Master's Degree in Performance Studies at NYU. At 24, her ideal job now is to be an audio archivist, although she plans on returning to ventriloquism if all else fails. Her outlook on life has in part been influenced by her Buddhist upbringing. Her dad, a lifelong winemaker, met her mom at work in Maui in the '70s. At the time, Beatrices mom was a rodeo queen, but she is now teaching at a Tibetan Meditation center in California. In her free time, Beatrice likes watching Scottish films, playing pool, painting, playing the violin, and coming up with ideas for graphic novels. She is always happy when she gets the chance to eat her grandmothers homemade Italian gnocchi. Beatrice is wearing the Geo Lace Demi Bra, Geo Lace Hipster Brief and Mohair Loose Cardigan.

Lavish production, colorful sets, dazzling costumes, brilliant choreography, extravagantly beautiful.
Broadway World

Absolutely beautiful... It was so inspiring, I think I may have found some new ideas for the next AVATAR. Robert Stromberg, Academy-Award winner, production designer for Avatar It was an extraordinary experience The level of skill, but also the power of the archetypes and the narratives was startling. And of course it was exquisitely beautiful. Cate Blanchett, Academy Award-winning Actress In a world of chaos, trauma, and negativity, Shen Yun brought something most needed in this world: hopehope for a better world, hope for a better future, hope for a better life. Jesse Miranda, producer/director, Los Angeles

HEN YUN offers an exhilarating world-class production on a grand scale and exquisite performances that celebrate the pure excellence and grandeur of classical Chinese dance and music inspired by the myths, legends, and divine beauty of 5,000 years of traditional Chinese culture. An art form several millennia old, Chinese dance is refreshingly

dynamic and expressive. Ancient legends and heroic gures come to life through its leaps, spins, and delicate gestures. Perhaps it is the quiet gentleness of the heavenly maidens that reminds us of a better time and a better world. Perhaps it is the conviction of warriors dashing across the plains that tells us that

good always defeats evil, in the end. Or perhaps it is the timeless stories of courage and compassion, kindness and kinship. Whatever it is, Shen Yun has touched the hearts of millions.

Shen Yun is returning to Austin with an all new spectacular and original production. It is an experience you wont want to miss.

Exploring an FDA-approved treatment option for MS relapses

Conspiracy
by Louis Black
During its early years, when the SXSW Festival was still only about music, during the conference part of the event we would do wild-card panels on interesting but not directly related topics. In 1990, we programmed a panel on the Kennedy assassination. It was so well-attended, interesting, and exciting that SXSW decided to do a conference in Dallas on the assassination. The Assassination Symposium on Kennedy (ASK) took place in Dallas, near Dealey Plaza. The first one was in 1991, the last in 1994. When I used to write a regular column for the Chronicle, my antipathy to conspiracy theories was more than evident. I was not a driving force in creating ASK, but was interested enough in the depth, importance, and controversy of the topic that I was a supporter of the event. The SXSW staff directly involved in creating and conducting ASK were all very knowledgeable about, well-read on, and advocates of theories about the assassination. Over the course of four years almost every major conspiracy writer and historian appeared on panels, at talks, or at workshops for the event. The first three years it went very well, peaking in the third year: November 1993, the 30th anniversary of the assassination. The fourth year everything fell apart. Some of those who had attended deciding that they didnt want to be involved in an event put on by rock & rollers started a competing event. In a couple of places, we were cited as being part of the conspiracy. Meanwhile, SXSW programmers, looking to enrich the dialogue, invited several conspiracy skeptics to take part in the panels a decision not well-received by traditional attendees. But that third year, the previous year, really was something else. Attendance, as I recall, was over 700, with speakers including Norman Mailer as well as Lee Harvey Oswalds widow, Marina Oswald Porter. I offer the following anecdote by first fully acknowledging that Im not just a nonbeliever in most conspiracy theories, but an active and outspoken skeptic. What I have to say here has to be considered in that context; Im not trying to pretend otherwise. One afternoon during that third ASK event, in a hotel near Dealey Plaza, a group of attendees gathered around Marina Oswald Porter in a lobby near the meeting rooms. Keep in mind that those registered

for ASK were all staunch conspiracy advocates there was no other reason to be there. My perspective was somewhat unique, because I was only marginally involved in staging the conference (I had no real hands-on authority nor responsibility). In the course of talking to Marina, someone asked her about the famous, allegedly doctored photo of Lee Harvey in his backyard, holding up the rifle eventually used in the assassination. (There were actually three similar photos of Oswald, holding two leftist newspapers in one hand and the rifle in the other; Oswald told police they were fake, and later, conspiracy theorists speculated they were composites made by someone trying to frame Oswald.) Marina answered something along the lines of no, the photo was real she had in fact taken it, in 1963, in the couples backyard. Without missing a beat, the discussion with Marina continued in any number of directions with no attention whatsoever paid to her comment. In no way was I surprised. n This week the Chronicle revisits the assassination on its 50th anniversary, with materials ranging from specific memories of those days to broader meditations on the meaning of the assassination, and of John F. Kennedy himself. We hope readers will find them enlightening, diverting, occasionally educational. We also promise that these are our own thoughts, undoctored by anybody else. For more JFK content, including an interview with ASK co-founder Roland Swenson, see austinchronicle.com/blogs.

Law?: Voter ID Effects Uncertain (Nov. 15), we said Nueces County voters rejected a $44.6 million bond package to renovate the Galveston beachfront. It was actually the Corpus Christi beachfront.

ODD PAIRINGS MAKE SENSE


Dear Editor, The ICRC gets an A+ for drawing very strong minority districts. Given the Rubiks Cube nature of drawing districts, it forced districts in white Austin to include some odd pairings of neighborhoods [Point Austin: Its a Map, Not a Revolution, News, Nov. 15]. But white Austinites should reflect on Austins sad history of racial politics before

complaining about that. Rather, where the ICRC slipped was their decision to draw initial districts along the outside edges of the city first. Though not required by the 10-1 charter amendment, this outside in approach resulted in the preliminary maps totally ludicrous districts 7 and 9, and the proposed final maps somewhat less ludicrous districts 5 and 8. The latter put neighborhoods near Lady Bird Lake in the same district as neighborhoods in Hays County. Huh? What do Lady Bird Lake and Hays County have in common? Common sense, and the neighborhood integrity requirement of the 10-1 charter amendment, dictate that neighborhoods near Lady Bird Lake should be in District 5 running east/west along the south bank of the river. The neighborhoods near Hays County should be in District 8, running east/west from Onion Creek to Oak Hill. That isnt NIMBYism. Downtown

is creeping south across the river. South Central Austin neighborhoods are being retrofitted with high-density development. Were feeling the traffic and other ill effects of that. Michael Kings understanding of 10-1 is a mile wide and an inch deep. By wanting a council member who can focus on those issues, rather than on Hays County issues, we ask only for what any other neighborhood should have. If whats happening in our neighborhoods were happening in Windsor Park, he might be so above it all that he doesnt care, but I guarantee 99% of his Windsor Park neighbors would want something done about it as much as we do. Tom Nuckols [Michael King responds: Its kind of Tom Nuckols to illustrate so precisely the curious logic of neighborhood provincialism I was describing: As he sees it, he has nothing in common with Austinites outside his own neighborhood, and 99% of Austinites think exactly as he does.]

Museum [UT to Slash Memorial Museum Funding, News, Nov. 15]. I hope that current staff will consider creating a public advisory committee to explore new revenue and grant options, as well as fundraising possibilities (perhaps a 75th anniversary gala?). In addition, I hope the museum will expand their current docent program to include unpaid student interns from the College of Natural Sciences and create a public volunteer program to offset budget cuts. As an educator, parent, and former UT student, I have spent countless hours at the Texas Memorial Museum and consider it a treasure. Kathleen Coyne

MICHAEL KING, STOP BITCHING!


Dear Editor, I felt I needed to reply to Michael Kings latest column Point Austin: Its a Map, Not a Revolution [News, Nov. 15]. Ive known Michael for quite a while, and respect his journalistic abilities and skills, but still havent understood his hostility toward the central city neighborhoods and us Southies.

engaged, knowledgeable folks to help guide this rapidly growing city, who keep up with issues and vote. So, whats the problem? The older, inner city neighborhoods often have folks that have been in Austin a while, are committed to it, and are willing to sit on boards and commissions and go to all those interminable meetings. Sounds like the kind of folks I want to represent me no matter what part of the town they are from. One of the reasons the inner city folks strongly supported 10-1 was hoping we would get engaged, knowledgeable folks from all over town. Although I doubt the folks in Circle C are going to like the drives! I guess we see different things; Michael sees big bad neighborhoods controlling the town, and I see the 1,000pound gorilla at the party: the Downtown Austin Alliance and their associates. Theyre not bad guys, just a lot of money and influence, and we sometimes dont see eye to eye. One of those ongoing conflicts is simple zoning, and that is where the hoods often have to work together. Folks that live in platted suburbs, gated communities, HOAs, or other entities generally have deeds of restrictions, covenants, or other legal protections for their property. Older, inner city neighborhoods have only zoning and that can get very flexible depending on the money and influence. So yeah, we work together supporting things like the affordable housing bonds, the 10-1 plan, our parks, schools, etc. Now with the new districts, Michael is just going to have to poke others, and Southies will adjust and still be able to beat yall at a tug-of-war. Note that I realize South Austin culture is just a piece of Austins fabric, but its a good un! So, Michael, stop being jealous, quit your bitching, and come down for a brew. Gary Hyatt [Michael King responds: I dont know why my friend Gary Hyatt believes Im hostil[e] toward central city neighborhoods. I live in one, and it gives me no reason to be jealous of the others. Maybe its his limited definition of central city that needs some revision.]

Reflections on Assassination
TRYING TO FIND SOME WISDOM ON A GRIM ANNIVERSARY
I suppose weve nearly reached the historical tipping point of cultural obsession with the Kennedy assassination. Most younger people I know dont share my generations sense that the moment marked a loss of American innocence; that current honor goes, understandably enough, to 9/11. Even so, as I discovered this week in soliciting and editing a group of writers on the subject (Writers on Kennedy, p.30), it turns out that there remains quite a bit to say about the subject of John F. Kennedy although what we say now most often reveals much more about us than it does about the 35th president, or his era. Thats doubly true of the assassination conspiracy industry, which proceeds unabated and, with the 50th anniversary, is rising once again to a high-water mark. (A bit of it is on display in a scurrilous advertisement in this weeks issue, and Ill say no more about that than its both legal and easy to slander the dead.) Its important to recall that Kennedys death was only the headline trigger for that historical loss of innocence; not simply that U.S. politics would never be the same, but that (as Jordan Smith notes in her contribution to the Kennedy feature) Americans are more

still somewhat untrusted Catholic president (being a papist was among the long list of right-wing complaints against him), Kennedy was for Catholic schoolchildren like me, and our families, something of a vulnerable than (until that mursecular saint. That he could be der) we believed we were. shot down with impunity Beyond that truism is the stunned even the schoolboy BY M I C HAE L fact that the subsequent hard cases in the room; U.S. war on Vietnam and several of us burst into Southeast Asia deeptears, and only much ened public disillusion later did it occur to me to a depth from which it that we were weeping as has never recovered, much in fear for ourand to a certain degree selves, our illusion of thats a good thing. Some safety stripped away, as illusions may be neceswe were for a man little KI N G sary, some inspiring, but more to us than an image on far too many are covers for a TV screen. I remember lies, self-deception, and political being shocked and angry that amnesia. Kennedys legacy (like that our Christian Brother teacher seemed of his successor Lyndon Johnson) is much continued on p.16 more complicated and mixed than we could realize at the time, and like all of U.S. history, there is both glory and madness within it.

NEWS
POI NT A US TIN continued from p.14 so stoic and reserved in response to the shooting, telling us youngsters soberly (and gently) that such danger is among the risks of high office or public action. Before too long, after the deaths of Martin Luther King Jr. and then Robert Kennedy, I would begin to understand what he meant. (A few months before, I had grabbed Robert Kennedys outstretched hand during his visit to Indiana University and shouted, Bring the troops home now! and was callously proud that he had blanched.) Disillusionment came fast and furious in those years.

Sex on Campus
Anyone who follows the trials and triumphs of UT Athletics knows by now that former UTwomens track coach Beverly Kearney has made good on her intent to sue the university on charges of racial and gender discrimination. If there are any surprises in the 12-page petition, its that university officials may have unintentionally opened a Pandoras box of campus-wide tawdriness and intrigue when they forced Kearney, who is AfricanAmerican, to resign because of a consensual relationship she had with an adult student athlete in 2002. The lawsuit, filed Nov. 14 in Travis County district court, makes a wide range of allegations, but one section in particular paints a tell-all tale of unnamed, ranking UT employees engaging in short-term, long-term, or, in some cases, everlasting relationships with former students or subordinates. Such liaisons are not unique to college campuses, but it appears that UT picked the wrong black woman to fire for engaging in this type of conduct. Kearney is not going down without exposing what her legal team asserts is a good ol boy system that either ignores other employees indiscretions, or disciplines them with a wrist slap. Perhaps UT administrators and their legal advisors believed the university would avert any further pubic relations disasters when, less than a month after Kearneys Jan. 5 resignation, Athletics Director DeLoss Dodds disclosed that offensive coordinator Major Applewhite had been disciplined four years earlier for an affair he had with a student trainer during the 2009 Fiesta Bowl activities. Applewhite was ordered to seek counseling, and his pay was tempo-

IN LAWSUIT, KEARNEY CLAIMS OTHER COACHES, PROFS HAVE AFFAIRS WITH STUDENTS
all white males have had affairs with students or subordinates without being subjected to termination or any meaningful disciplinary actions. The suit alleges that coaches, current and former law school professors and undergrad professors, as well as a department chairperson, have had dalliances with students or subordinates. Moreover, the suit points to a high level administrator within the athletics department who has carried on a prolonged intimate relationship of approximately three years with a subordinate employee with whom he has direct involvement in setting her pay. Attorneys Derek Howard of Austin and Jody Mask of McAllen, who declined commenting beyond what they wrote in a press statement, also allege that the university cites a nonexistent policy that holds head coaches to a higher standard than other employees who have engaged in consensual relationships with students. Indeed, a statement issued after Kearneys resignation by Patti Ohlendorf, UTs vice president for legal affairs, does suggest that the former coach was held to a different standard than others. The University determined that it no longer was appropriate for Coach Kearney to serve as head coach or to work directly with our student-athletes and was prepared to begin the termination process, the statement reads. The University told Coach Kearney that we cannot condone such an intimate relationship, including one that is consensual, between a head coach and a student-athlete. We told Coach Kearney such a relationship is unprofessional and crosses the line of trust placed in the head coach for all aspects of the athletic program and the best interests of the studentathletes on the team. Of course, anyone can file a lawsuit and claim any number of allegations. These may or may not bear fruit, or render any financial damages for Kearney, but the discovery and depositions, nonetheless, should be interesting. n

Bitter Wisdom

Fifty years on, with many things changed both for better and worse, I still wonder at the institutional immobility of so many things in American life, at our still reflexive foreign policy of imperial war on less powerful nations, at the staggering, deleterious national inequality (that both JFK and especially LBJ stemmed for only a brief time), at the ubiquitousness of guns, the dailiness of shootings, and the intermittent gun massacres that have become seemingly inevitable aspects of U.S. public life. That there is definitely a cultural and political relationship among all these things seems inarguable; that as a country we seem unable to successfully address these problems in any consistently effective way questions the fundamental soundness of our forms of government. Its become a cultural commonplace that until Kennedy, Jackie, and the Sixties came along, the whole world was monochrome; fashion, art, and music were moribund; and of course sex hadnt even been invented yet. The whole culture was asleep until sex, drugs, and rock & roll came along and simultaneously woke us up and liberated the whole lot of us. As Hemingway wrote in a somewhat different context, but after an even more greatly disillusioning modern war, Isnt it pretty to think so? As more than one commentator has noted, the polarized U.S. public atmosphere under the two Barack Obama administrations, 50 years later, is eerily reminiscent of the polarized public atmosphere under the oh-so-brief Kennedy administration. There is little unity of public purpose, the national governing process at least appears irretrievably broken, and ever-growing inequality has emboldened a significant political movement from the top to savagely cut the bottom out of the body politic. Conspiracy mongers on all sides rule much of our discourse, and the latest avatar of public engagement is the mass brandishing of weapons in public places a movement yet duly pandered to by far too many of our would-be or actual public officials. I might say Lee Harvey Oswald and his assassination-era followers have much to answer for, except that Oswald was much more a symptom than a cause. Id like to end on a much more uplifting note, but on this grim anniversary, Im afraid thats all Ive got. n

Urban Farms: Mediation Bears No Fruit


City Councils recommended mediation, held Monday evening, over city staffs proposed revisions to the citys urban farm code, has thus far yielded little, if any, result. On Oct. 17, when it became clear that stakeholders were strongly polarized on the issue, Council postponed its consideration of the proposed revisions which would permit but regulate such farms and sent the dispute to mediation in hopes of finding common ground. There were eight participants in Mondays private meeting, mediated by former state District Judge Bob Perkins. In support of the proposed revisions were Paula Foore of Springdale Farm, Judith McGeary of Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance, Katherine Nicely of the Sustainable Food Policy Board, and Govalle Neighborhood Association Chair Nine Francois. In opposition were Susana Almanza of People Organized in Defense of Earth and Her Resources, Daniel Llanes of PODER and the Govalle/Johnston Terrace Neighborhood Plan Contact Team, David King of the Austin Neighborhoods Council, and Gilberto Rivera, chair of the Community Development Commission. After the meeting, Nicely said a compromise at this point seems unlikely. It seems like were not getting anywhere. We dont know what the middle ground is. Although the proposed code revisions are on todays (Nov. 21) Council agenda, opponents have requested another postponement for additional mediation. The Govalle/Johnston Terrace group has proposed additional regulations: prohibiting future urban farms in residential zoning, imposing a minimum size requirement of five acres, and requiring new applications for urban farm status to go through the neighborhood plan amendment process, in addition to other restrictions. And market gardens agricultural operations under one acre with stringent restrictions on commercial activities would not be permitted. The proposal would grandfather and exempt the Boggy Creek, Springdale, Rain Lily, and HausBar farms, and recog-

nize without penalty their urban farm status. The grandfathering would be governed under the previous code, apply only to those four farms, and would not transfer with the properties. As presented, it would exclude Agua Dulce Farm, a single-family zoned urban farm in Southeast Austin, specializing in aquaponics. According to Agua Dulce owner Jack Waite, What Mr. Llanes and Ms. Almanza propose is ridiculous. Urban farms are a community resource and need to be promoted and helped out by the city through code changes, not restricted. The points of their argument continue to change, suggesting to me that they are just trying to chalk up wins they can tout to neighborhood groups should they decide to run for City Council in the next election. Almanza and Llanes did not respond to requests for comment, but have said previously that they represent the interests of the entire neighborhood, and that they are defending East Austin from encroaching gentrification, commercialization, and the loss of tracts of land that could be used for affordable housing. They have said the farms impose nuisances smells, traffic,

etc. on neighboring residents, and they have received support from some representatives of other neighborhoods, who see the farms as potentially threatening neighborhood integrity by allowing commercial operations and events on residential property. The farms move toward commercialization of single-family zoning, Almanza and Llanes wrote in a Statesman op-ed, goes against what this neighborhood has fought so hard to create, in what the city, and the nation, now recognize as a premium Downtown neighborhood. A barrage of editorials in the Austin American-Statesman have repeatedly and misleadingly denounced the farms as promoting slaughterhouses incompatible with single-family zoning. Rosa Santis, a board member of Southwest Key as well as of Mexic-Arte Museum, owns numerous properties near Springdale Farm, where she has posted signs reading, Is it an urban farm or special event center? and Say No to the commercialization of single-family zoned land! Say No to the slaughtering of animals! Say No to urban farm ordinance.

Similar signs posted at La Fuente Learning Center were removed by the school, returned by Llanes, and removed again by the school. Earlier this month, Llanes reportedly threatened to call the police on an employee of Eden East, the farm-to-table restaurant located on Springdale Farm, blaming them for the removal. Springdales Paula Foore says, Thats whats been hard, not to take it personally. What are we doing wrong? Its getting more and more critical for HausBar [partially closed until the regulations are resolved]. For us, its more emotional. It gets more divisive throughout the community the more lies they tell. Julian Fernandez of the conjunto band Los Texas Wranglers lives near HausBar, and says the farm is a breath of fresh air and a reminder of how his grandparents used to live. He rejects the notion that Llanes or Almanza speak for the neighborhood. Thats a lie, thats a lie. Thats a lie, he insisted. They do not represent the Govalle community. No one that I know of no one has ever heard anything of what Almanza or Llanes has brought up against the farm. Neighbor Laura Smith agrees. Smith, who has owned a home and lived in Govalle since March 2004, raises her two daughters near HausBar Farms. When I heard Daniel Llanes speaking in front of the Planning Commission, talking about longtime Govalle residents and purporting to know their preferences, I decided to reach out and have one-on-one conversations with my neighbors, in an attempt to find out for myself how they felt. Smith said she spoke to 21 neighbors within a quarter mile of HausBar Farms and Boggy Creek all decades-long residents. Only three, she reported, had ambivalent or negative responses most expressed a positive opinion of the farms. I would summarize it this way, Smith said. There is a spectrum, and on one end you have I dont have a problem with the farms. They dont bother me. On the other end of the same spectrum, you have I love the farms. These 18 residents fell somewhere on that spectrum. Smith is expected to bring her findings to city leaders at tonights Council meeting. Anna Toon

City Council: Tasers R Us!


City Council returns to formal public work today (Nov. 21) with a bursting agenda, partly a consequence of the semiinterruption caused by the Halloween floods the Nov. 7 meeting was truncated to let city staff devote more time to recovery work, and several matters on that agenda were postponed to this one. A few are already contentious: Project Connect (a CAMPO initiative) was scheduled to brief Council on its recommendation of the Riverside and Highland sub-corridors for the initial urban rail lines thats been postponed to Dec. 12 and some transit advocates have reiterated their avid disapproval of any northside route other than Guadalupe/Lamar (see Project Connect Draws a Line, p.20). The other scheduled briefing is on the citys online message board system. Similarly, earlier this week, a quixotic attempt at mediating the neighborhood vs. farmers dispute over proposed urban

farm regs came a cropper (see above). Those revised regs, which have made their way through staff development and commission approval, are partly on the consent agenda (Item 20) and also scheduled for public hearing (Item 105), but it would surprise nobody if even after heard for debate they are once again delayed for a vote, in desperate hope of an unlikely consensus. Items 46, 47, and 48 concern proposed ordinances creating pilot rental registration systems (primarily for multifamily units) in three designated neighborhoods (Rundberg, Riverside/Oltorf, and now vaguely central Austin). The primary goal is better monitoring for code compliance matters, but Council members were still working out the potential details at Tuesdays work session, so although this proposal has been simmering for some time, it may not quite be soup yet. If they ever get that done, it may be time to move on to stealth dorms the student-overstuffed projects in singlefamily neighborhoods (mostly near West Campus) have been headline fodder this week, and Item 53 (sponsored by CMs

Mike Martinez, Chris Riley, and Kathie Tovo) would simply initiate the research (via the Stealth Dorm Working Group) to move toward an ordinance. Similarly, Item 60 would create the first official steps toward climate resiliency that is, since the climate is already dramatically changing, and we cant expect a short-term fix, wed better start developing ways to adapt other than just a higher SPF. Nor will that protect you against tasers (Item 37, on consent): According to the backup on the 36-month (plus three one-year extension options) $2.3 million contract with Taser International, The Austin Police Department currently has over eight hundred tasers in use by patrol and other specialized units throughout the City of Austin. Thats one way to ensure code compliance. The listed musical honorees are the Nightowls verifiably Good as Gold. Its also Adoption Month, Diabetes Month, and Pancreatic Cancer Month all occasions to be solemnly proclaimed. If the meeting ever adjourns, head out to Buy Local for the Holidays! Michael King

On Friday, Nov. 15, Project Connect the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organizations regional planning initiative made its official recommendation to Mayor Lee Leffingwells Central Corridor Advisory Group regarding the proposed next highcapacity transit investment, recommending the East Riverside (south and east on East Riverside Drive) and Highland (north along Red River Street) sub-corridors as the top prospects for initial urban rail development. East Riverside was recommended because of its high population and employment density as well as its expected continued growth; Highland because of its potential growth, along UTs eastern campus boundary, the new medical school, and the anticipated redevelopment around Austin Community College at the former Highland Mall. Not all transit advocates welcomed the decision. Scott Morris of the Central Austin Community Development Corporation said, Were disappointed in the initial recommendation in that it really does not serve the residential densities in Austin north of the river. We applaud the selection of East Riverside sub-corridor but we dont see where in this recommendation they get to go to. The Highland corridor totally bypasses the existing residential density. Mike Dahmus, former member of the Urban Transportation Commission and supporter of Austinites for Urban Rail Action, also criticized the Highland decision. Everybody that looks at Austin and that knows anything about transit knows that [Lamar and Guadalupe is] where you put the trains if you want them to be a success, which is what you need for your first line. You want your first line to be very heavily used, so that you get the chance to do a second line and a third line and so on, he said. The problem is, if you pick the wrong first line, you never get to make a second line, or at least you have to wait a generation or two for the voters to give you another chance. Capital Metro spokesman John Julitz said, We understand that there are people who are disappointed and convinced that there are better options out there, but

JOHN ANDERSON

from the Central Corridor teams perspective, this is absolutely the very best option. AURA executive committee member Dan Keshet called the Highland recommendation a head-scratcher, and said, It is not the transparent and data-driven process that we were hoping for. He voiced concerns over how quickly the project is moving forward and said it needs more examination. Added Morris, Well continue to promote awareness of the jobs, population, and transit density of Guadalupe-North Lamar, and seek to improve this initial recommendation by pairing Guadalupe-North Lamar with East Riverside. That may give the people of East Riverside more places to go, and allow an interconnection of these two very strong corridors. CCAG will review the recommendation and public comments before making its own decision, expected in December. City Council will need to take official action by June, 2014, for the plans to make the November ballot. Mac McCann
Project Connects recommendation is posted on its website (www.projectconnect.com), with an online survey and evaluation tool for public input until Dec. 4. A Community Conversation for more input will be held Tuesday, Nov. 26, 7-9pm, also online and on Channel 6.

Last week, in the final hours of the ICRCs final public input meeting on City Council districting, things turned in a positive direction. This isnt to say that the late meetings were free of criticism far from it. But even the enduring complaints about the decision to fracture South Central Austin (readdressed in some slight late revisions) were couched in praise for the commission and its members hard work. Joan Bartz , founder of the University Hills Neighborhood Association, established herself as a fixture at ICRC meetings. At the final public input meeting, Nov. 14, she declared that if she only had them on hand she would give gold stars to everyone. It was a sentiment that ran throughout the last, almost celebratory, meeting. It was not entirely clear whether people had become giddy at the prospect of a new day in Austin, or simply thrilled in 8 the knowledge that they wouldnt have to attend any more ICRC meetings for a decade. Despite the burgeoning warm glow, there remained conflicts. The Northwest remained split on how the Northwest should be split. And East Riverside Planning Contact Team and South River City Citizens member Toni House reiterated the concerns of many South Austinites, who steadfastly object to being included in a district with Downtown. She stressed the difference in interests between her community and Downtown, citing a history of opposing positions in the two areas of zoning and neighborhood planning. I seriously doubt that any candidate could truly represent the entire district, and will mostly likely focus on what Downtown wants, said House. Its incomprehensible to me why you chose to ignore probably our strongest natural geographic boundary Lady Bird Lake. Her remarks met with cheers from the crowd at the Lodge (formerly the Elks Lodge). Though vocal opposition from Barton Hills and Zilker neighborhoods had finally managed to extract their areas from the Downtown district, others werent so lucky, and House articulated concerns that many share: that Downtown voters will dominate any representative from a district even

80,000 strong that includes them. As Govalle/Johnston Terrace Chair Daniel Llanes put it, It sounds like nobody really wants Downtown. This is understandable. They are people from Manhattan who want to turn Austin into Manhattan, and we all know that. But, like a chain of falling dominoes, once Barton Hills and Zilker were put into the southern slice of District 5 away from presumably dominating Downtown people from neighborhoods like Onion Creek and Southwood told the commission that they werent crazy about the change. Austin Tejano Democrat Fred Cantu said as much

at the final public input meeting of the ICRC, where he joined the others congratulating the commission on a job well done, but expressed disappointment that his neighborhood would most likely be served by a representative from one of the neighborhoods closer to Downtown. In general, though, there has already been a shift toward acknowledging the map as a reality at the meetings. Bartz helped lead the charge to the brave new future last week. Theres something good that can come out of all of this. Yes, everybody is uptight now. Theyre tense. Theyre unhappy. But, who knows? Maybe this whole process is going to result in everyone in the city starting to talk to each other and working together across the board, she said. Yall better get used to it, because the magic number in this process is not one your rep but six. Your rep isnt worth a durn if he cant get six other reps to vote with him. So youd better start talking. Elizabeth Pagano

Supremes Sustain HB 2, 5-4


On Tuesday evening, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to intervene and stay a provision of controversial state House Bill 2 that requires abortion-performing doctors to have hospital-admitting privileges within 30 miles of each facility where they provide care. Abortion providers who sued to block the law, and won, are fighting to have upheld a decision by federal district Judge Lee Yeakel, who ruled on Oct. 28 that the provision has no connection to maternal or fetal well-being and creates an undue burden on women seeking constitutionally protected abortion care. That ruling was immediately appealed by Texas, whose lawyers received an emergency stay from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, allowing the law to take effect while the overall appeal is pending. On Tuesday, in a short opinion, Justice Antonin Scalia, joined by Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, declined to oblige, allowing the offending provision to remain in force. The Supremes owe great deference to the 5th Circuits decision, Scalia wrote. Justice Stephen Breyer joined by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan dissented, writing that keeping the law enjoined would maintain the status quo that existed in Texas prior to the enactment of the admitting privileges requirement, and thus would not unduly harm the states interests while the broader appeal, to be heard by the 5th Circuit in January, is pending. And while the state has denied that more than 22,000 women face barriers to access with the new law in effect, it provides no assurance that a significant number of women seeking abortions will not be affected, and the District unquestionably found that there will be abortion clinics that will close. That has happened already: More than a dozen clinics across the state, including the South Austin Planned Parenthood surgical center, have suspended providing abortions because their doctors have, to date, been unable to secure the admitting privileges required by the law. Hundreds of women with existing appointments at many clinics have been turned away, and imposition of the law has left the Rio Grande Valley without a single abortion provider. Notably, neither Chief Justice John Roberts nor Justice Anthony Kennedy added their names to the opinion, though they presumably sided with the conservative jurists, creating the 5-4 decision to deny the providers plea for intervention. The decision was decried by advocates for reproductive rights, who argue that the provision may cause clinics to close, but wont stop women from seeking abortion. Nancy Northup, president and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights, which represents Whole Womans Health in the lawsuit, said in a statement: The shattering stories of women turned away at clinic doors and denied their constitutional right to abortion are already numerous, and they multiply every single day this underhanded law is enforced.

Former Artistic Director Sues Scottish Rite


The bad blood between the Austin Scottish Rite Theater and former Artistic Director Emily Marks boiled legally last week, with a lawsuit filed on Nov. 13. Marks lawsuit accuses the theatre board of slander, libel, negligent termination, and negligence in employee recruiting and supervision. However, no statement of facts is included in the filings, and the pleading does not state an amount of monetary damages. The suit is the latest development in a dispute brought to the public eye with Marks termination in late July. At the time, former Executive Producer John Riedie told the Chronicle that the termination was the result of Marks attempts to run the theatre independently of the Scottish Rite fraternity. Riedie further alleged that an intimidation campaign was waged against Marks in the weeks leading up to the termination. Indeed, amended board meeting minutes from May reveal tensions between Marks and the board of directors. At issue was Marks refusal to sign the organizations 990 (nonprofit) tax form. The minutes reflect that Marks discomfort was due to what she perceived as the inappropriate blurring of fraternity and theatre governance. The discussion culminated with Marks walking out of the meeting, an action that resulted in a formal reprimand. In response to the press and social media chatter, theatre board Chairman Todd Smith posted a statement on the groups website accusing both Marks and Riedie of waging a smear campaign. In the statement, he acknowledges that Marks had made harassment claims, but insists the board took the appropriate steps to investigate all incidents and ensure Marks safety. He roundly denies any wrongdoing, stating that the board was in full compliance with the law. Representatives of the Scottish Rite Theater and Marks were both contacted for comment on the lawsuit. At press time, the Scottish Rite had not responded. Marks attorney Blair Dancy only offered a brief statement: Emily has reached out to the theater in an effort to set things right, and shes waiting to hear back. Shell amend the petition with more specific allegations if the theater is not interested in that. But to give the theater a chance to repair the situation, she chooses to remain silent for now.

F1 Racing Wrap and COTAs Tech Future


Last weekends United States Grand Prix was one for the record books. The second Formula One race at Austins purposebuilt Circuit of the Americas saw driver Sebastian Vettel reinforce his grasp on the championship with his eighth consecutive winning race. However, off the track it was business as usual, as the city absorbed the second of at least a decade of annual F1 races at the Circuit. For fans, the event followed basically the same formula as 2012, with shuttle buses transporting the majority of attendants to and from the site. Fortunately for both drivers and fans, there was no repeat of the deluge that washed out the second weekend of Austin City Limits. Instead, temperatures peaked in the unseasonably high 80s. Not that the weekend transportation went completely without hiccups. In a reminder that southeast Travis County is still farming country, on Saturday morning a cow wandered onto FM 812. That may have been the biggest traffic delay of the day a surprise to many, since there were concerns that having an F1 race and a UT football game on the same weekend would cause a transit meltdown. There were actually bigger problems on Sunday, with slow-moving traffic out to the track, and a brief security concern. COTA management delayed opening the gates for half an hour while agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives responded to what track spokesperson Julie Loignon called a suspicious incident at turn one. ATF quickly gave the area the all-clear for the crowds, and the gates opened at 8am. Unsurprisingly, attendance was down a little from 2012. There was no longer the first-year novelty, plus the championship had already basically been settled. Even before his dominating performance on Sunday, Vettel was in an unassailable position for the drivers title, as was his team

Infiniti Red Bull Racing in the constructors championship. That translated into a drop-off in bodies through the gates. Fridays practice sessions took the biggest hit at 58,276 down from 65,360 in 2012. Business picked up for Saturdays qualifying at 78,886 (down from 83,710), and track management will probably be happy with Sundays race day turnout of 113,162 (a 3.6% drop from 2012s 117,429). But off the track, the big question remains about the circuits overall economic and environmental impact. After one year in operation, COTA has hosted multiple car and bike races, but the long-term plan is to create a research and development campus in its shadow. Last Friday, the British Consulate in Houston invited a

blend of Texas politicos and IT entrepreneurs to an evening of mingling at ACL Live at the Moody Theater. It was a two-way pitch, to showcase Texas to international investors, and British technology to potential U.S. customers. The day before, UK Trade and Investment held the GREAT Tech Rally at the UT AT&T Conference Center, using the F1 brand to attract attention. Event moderator Fred Schmidt, founder of Austin-based start-up-incubator/ realtor Capital Factory, called F1 the worlds coolest traveling circus. There was one repeated theme about Austin and tech that, for a town with a major IT community, the cell phone network is busting at the seams. Even COTA Director of Sustainability Edgar Farrera got questioned about the state of the cell network out at the track, yet its a broader issue. As anyone who has tried to tweet or send email during any large Austin event or even just a busy workday knows, coverage anywhere in Travis County is sketchy at best. Add on the USGP or ACL or SXSW, and its a major problem. As for the tracks carbon footprint, Farrera says the circuits baseload demand is around 500 kilowatts, and it buys half of that through Austins wind energy program. At last years inaugural U.S. Grand Prix the energy demand peaked at 4 MW less than half the 10 MW peak demand of a Dallas Cowboys home game, which has all kinds of power requirements, like AC and lighting, that the circuit does not require. As the first track with a full-time sustainability officer, COTA trailblazed in hiring Farrera. However, theres still a conservative edge to the sport. In a recent survey, F1 fans were asked if they support greener racing: Absolutely, they responded but not if it means changing the distinctive angry hornets whine of the engine. The question was raised: Is that just old-school fans who fear change, or something endemic in the sport? I dont know, Farrera said, but its a reality. Richard Whittaker

Statewide Candidate Filings Trickle In

U.S. Senator: Much as he rails against D.C., GOP incumbent John Cornyn wants a third term there. His primary challenger is Chris Mapp, a hardline Tea Partier whose platform tells the unemployed, If I had it my way, I would cut your money off and force you to starve or work. The sole Dem is attorney Michael Fjet Fjetland, previously seen running as a Republican against Tom DeLay in 2000, 2002, and 2006. Governor: Attorney General Greg Abbott and Sen. Wendy Davis, D-Fort Worth, are the presumed frontrunners, but each will face a primary challenge. Abbotts trifecta of marginal opponents: Miriam Martinez (a Mexican-born naturalized U.S. citizen with a pro-immigration reform, anti-gun control platform), Larry SECEDE Kilgore (real name, and also his sole policy secession from the U.S.), and Tea Party favorite and sometime Fox News talking head Lisa Fritsch. Davis will face Seadrift, Texas, municipal court judge Reynaldo Ray Madrigal. Lieutenant Governor: Theres a long list of familiar Republican names circling the post including incumbent David Dewhurst, Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson, and Sen. Dan Patrick, R-Houston but so far, none have actually made their run official. Attorney General: With Abbott eying the governors mansion, the GOP primary features two legislators Sen. Ken Paxton, R-McKinney, and Rep. Dan Branch, R-Dallas plus Railroad Commissioner/former Public Utility Commission chair/Rick Perry favorite Barry Smitherman. No Dem candidate so far. Comptroller of Public Accounts: Many Republicans feared that hardline Ron Paulite Debra Medina might muddy the waters in the gubernatorial race as she did in 2010; instead shes entered a comptroller fight with two ambitious GOP lawmakers: Rep. Harvey Hilderbran, R-Kerrville, and Sen. Glenn Hegar, R-Katy. Meanwhile, former PricewaterhouseCoopers partner Mike Collier has positioned himself as a pro-business, pro-oversight Democrat.

All eyes will be on the River City this Saturday as Sen. Leticia Van de Putte, D-San Antonio, makes her long-awaited announcement about her 2014 election plans. Its all but confirmed now that she will run for lieutenant governor, but shes not the only Texas politico eying statewide office. With filing for the March 4 primaries closing on Dec. 9, its time for declared candidates to put pen to paper and actually lodge their paperwork with the secretary of states office. Heres the full list of filed candidates, as of Nov. 19.

General Land Office Commissioner: While Republicans waited with bated breath for the next Bush this time, George P. to file, he made his signing a press event on Nov. 19, but the paperwork hadnt actually reached the secretary of states website by close of business. Democrat John Cook is the sole candidate who has actually registered his paperwork. The former El Paso mayor prioritizes the offices role as a funder of education. Commissioner of Agriculture: Two former GOP state reps purged in primaries moderate Tommy Merritt and hardliner Sid Miller are joined

Leticia Van de Putte is expected to declare her Democratic candidacy for lieutenant governor on Saturday

by rancher/former Republican Party of Texas director Eric Opiela and former Uvalde mayor J. Allen Carnes. Cleburnes Jim Hogan is the sole filed Dem. Railroad Commissioner: Since the office has nothing to do with railroad but is actually the states oil and gas regulator, the sole filed candidate Dallas-based Republican Party of Texas Finance Committee member Malachi Boyuls is running on an anti-regulation slate.

How Many Shots ?
Joe Nick Patoski
Lee Harvey Oswald attended my high school, Arlington Heights in Fort Worth, several years ahead of me, and Lees mom, Marguerite Oswald, lived across the street from my junior high in 1963. I met her a few years later, when I accompanied my friend Don Crowell collecting on his newspaper route. For three years in the early Nineties, I was involved with the Assassination Symposium on John F. Kennedy (ASK) staged by South by Southwest organizers in Dallas. I met Oswalds widow, Marina, hung out with journalists who covered the assassination, and drove guest speaker Norman Mailer back to DFW Airport. My one regret was not doing a book on the conspiratorial community. I did a story for Texas Monthly on the Two Oswalds theorist (a nice upper-middle-class Tulsa family man) and interviewed Dealey Plaza eyewitnesses (I asked everyone how many shots they heard the answers ranged from two to seven). I have stood at the window of the Sixth Floor Museum, and there imagined shooting a .22 repeater rifle (the gun I had when I was a kid) three times, realizing a shooter could have plausibly hit his target from that vantage point. There were plenty of motives, means, and opportunities, and the political climate in Dallas was as rabidly right-wing as the current Tea Party movement is in Texas today. Knowing what little I know, Im convinced the person accused of the crime was the one who did the deed.
Joe Nick Patoski is author of The Dallas Cowboys: The Outrageous History of the Biggest, Loudest, Most Hated, Best Loved Football Team in America. He is working on a cultural history of modern Austin for the University of Texas Press.

Fifty years later, it seems there is another determined handful pulling the country apart pulling it to the extremes, and abandoning reasonable debate and healthy discussion. Dallas 1963 might very well be America 2013, in that weve not meditated enough on what happens when an angry handful presume to speak for the majority and they concoct such fear and distrust.
Bill Minutaglio is the co-author with Steven L. Davis of Dallas 1963 (Twelve Books). He is a clinical professor of journalism at the University of Texas at Austin, the author of several other books (including biographies of George W. Bush and Molly Ivins), and a contributing writer to The Texas Observer.

The End of the Wor l d


Belinda Acosta
I have a very clear memory of JFKs assassination, but its not mine. Its my mothers. I was 4 years old, and my brother was a newborn. My mother had just bathed my brother when the news broke into her soap opera playing in the other room. Like others across the nation, she rushed to the TV, thereby being among the first to experience tragedy in the TV age. Like so many, she was mesmerized, first by the news, then by the images of unfolding events. In my mind, the gravity of what had happened is melded to the horror my mother felt when she eventually realized shed left her baby unattended. For myself, the Kennedy assassination is rolled into one huge, nightmarish event which includes the murders of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy, both in 1968. I was 9 by then. Nationwide mourning for JFK was still vivid. For me, the aftermath was calmly concluding that it was the end of the world and that I wouldnt live past age 15. Even today, Im pleasantly surprised to have reached middle age but Im always waiting for the world to end.
Former Chronicle TV Eye columnist, Belinda Acosta is now a graduate student in creative writing at the University of Nebraska. Her short story, Birth & Afterbirth was a finalist in The Texas Observers 2013 short story contest.

Writers on Kennedy
What we think about when we think about JFK
BY MICHAEL KING
When the editors realized this issue would fall on that fateful Nov. 22 anniversary, 50 years on, I was uncertain what the Chronicle might do that would adequately commemorate the event, or would say what hadnt already been said many times before. I shouldnt have worried; always trust your writers. The assignment was very simple I asked a range of good thinkers and writers to write, very briefly, on John F. Kennedy and/ or the assassination, in any way they chose. Not everyone I asked accepted; I even tried to get a real youngster or two to respond with something like, This is ancient history! but those I asked declined with an email shrug. (Tells you something about time passing.) For those who asked for a little more direction, I added, Im hoping that the space limitation will encourage writers to say what they believe is most vivid, permanent, or important about those years, or that event. So they have done. Some are elegiac, some skeptical, some historical. I hope they inspire as much reflection in the reading as they did in the gathering and editing.

JFK:
GONE 50 YEARS

Fear and Distrust


Bill Minutaglio
The meaning of the Kennedy assassination, to me, is that we have lost the meaning that we have lost the lessons, the messages inherent in his death. When he came to Dallas in 1963, the citys microphone had been hijacked by a very small handful of rabid extremists. The group which included the wealthiest man in the world, preachers, politicos, lunatic military men, and a media mogul stole the civic discourse, and built a toxic, anti-Kennedy trap, as the president neared the city in November 1963. They created a vitriolic, hateful environment and they were clearly not speaking for the majority of people in Dallas. But they had access to the pulpits, the airwaves, the news pages and, together, they serve as a cautionary reminder of what happens when a small, strident group can push the public debate to the fanatical, extremist fringe.

A Box of War Souvenirs


Dagoberto Gilb
That late morning in class as our teacher, weeping, told us our president had been shot and we should all go home, under the influence of the baddest boy anywhere around, my buddy Jimmy, big, dangerous, and hairy as a man, I first smiled, stupid, as he did, since we were getting out so early. But when, a few seconds later, I looked over at Nancy Gonzalez, who I had the worst crush on, who I wished was pining for me too, who was smart, who was upset, she glared back at me like I was the ugliest turd on this earth. I was jolted by the shame that she was right. At home I curled up, pillow and blanket, as close as I could to our knobless old TV set

like I was flu sick and watched the news, waking to sleeping. I lived there. I only went out twice a day, in the morning for the Los Angeles Times, in the afternoon for the Examiner. The lone residue of my father in our home was a box of war souvenirs, one a newspaper with a giant headline about victory over Japan. The week was my addition. The only other outdoors I saw was deep inside that used console, in blurry black & white, burning through my eyes, worlds, I began, away from my streets.
Dagoberto Gilbs most recent book is Before the End, After the Beginning. His earlier books include The Magic of Blood (1993), The Last Known Residence of Mickey Acua (1994), Woodcuts of Women (2001), Gritos (2003), and The Flowers (2008).

Some of That Hope Died


Harold McMillan
I was in the first grade at Sand Flat Elementary School. In my memory, the day is sunny and warm. It was lunchtime and all of the kids were outside on the playground, swinging, playing softball and basketball, playing in the deep sand under the building, just hanging out. Some of the older kids were saying that A.C. had forgotten to ring the bell to end recess we were getting a special bonus, more time to play outside.

NEWS

WRITE RS O N K E NNE D Y continued from p.30 Manchurian Candidates via Satanic ritual abuse in day cares. Bush knew all about 9/11 before 9/11. Perhaps weirdest is the idea that if only Kennedy had lived, America would be a wonderful, glorious place. I never got that one. Kennedy was basically a Don Draper, but instead of Dons serial women and Madison Avenue ad accounts, he had serial women and the Cuban Missile Crisis. Kennedy live? What kind of legacy is that? Sadly, the post-mortem conspiracy stuff is way more entertaining.

The teachers had been listening to the news. Eventually, A.C., the principal, rang the bell and brought us all inside for a short assembly. Always a stoic, very well-composed man, he seemed emotionally shaken, sad, troubled. Mrs. Wade and Mrs. Howard, the other two teachers, had tears in their eyes. President Kennedy has been shot and has died. School is out for the rest of the day. Gather your things and head to the bus. Kennedys death was significant even for me and the 50 other little black kids at Sand Flat School. Sand Flat School the Colored School in Emory, Texas was a threeclassroom Rosenwald School. A.C., my dad, was superintendent, principal, seventh- and eighth-grade teacher, basketball and track coach, bus driver, and head cook. Our textbooks were hand-me-downs from the White School. This was long after Brown v. Board of Education (1954), but that was our reality in Emory. The Kennedy brothers were going to fix all of this and make America do the right thing. Thats what the grown folks had been saying. Among black folks, in the Emory of 1963, when John F. Kennedy died, some of that hope died with him.

F l esh and Blood


Kate X Messer
Chronicle staffer Carolyn Phillips, then a student at the University of Houston, saw JFK the day before he went to Dallas. The day was clear and beautiful. One of those Texas days. (One Fine Day, the Chiffons) She perched on the barrier of the new Gulf Freeway, near where the presidents motorcade would pass. It was the time before everything broke loose. Before Bob Dylan. (Blowin in the Wind, Peter, Paul & Mary) There was a nervous feeling, among younger people about the state of politics blocking the gateway to adulthood. Politics was old men, gray and white on TV, where everything looked like cement. J. Edgar Hoover ([Youre the] Devil in Disguise, Elvis Presley) The motorcade passed slowly about 20 miles per hour. Here they came: young, beautiful, smart, educated. Jackie had very deep auburn hair shiny, thick, riding in a white convertible. (Just One Look, Doris Troy) Jackie had on a hat. They both waved. They looked like something off a wedding cake, so glamorous. They werent gray. Theyre flesh and blood. JFK had vision, he had imagination, and the ability to communicate it to the next generation. (I Will Follow Him, Little Peggy March) Everybody was full of hope. The next day came as utter shock. Everything came apart. RFK MLK It all blew up. (The End of the World, Skeeter Davis)

Profil e in Courage
Fred McGhee
By October of 1960, the civil rights movement was in full flower. Three weeks before the presidential election, Martin Luther King Jr. was arrested in Georgia for a minor traffic violation; he had been living in Georgia for three months but was still using his Alabama license. Jim Crow justice was swift; King was convicted and sent to the states maximum security prison to serve four months on the chain gang. Fearing for Kings life, civil rights leaders appealed to both presidential candidates for help. Nixon ignored the appeal. The Kennedy camp did not. The Massachusetts senator was no civil rights champion, but he did have people around him who understood that the issue of civil rights was fundamentally more about morality than political calculation. John F. Kennedys brother-in-law, Sargent Shriver, helped him to identify his moral center on this critical issue. Bobby Kennedy called the Georgia judge and helped secure Kings release from prison. The outcome? Black people broke decisively from the party of Lincoln, and they voted en masse for the Democratic ticket. It was a profile in courage, one of many, and remains a leading reason why JFKs death continues to be a tragedy.
Fred McGhee is a maritime archaeologist, historical anthropologist, and an authority on the history of African Americans in public housing and on community development issues. He is the author of Two Texas Race Riots and the forthcoming Austins Montopolis Neighborhood.

JFKs presidency may have been more stylish than what came before and after, but it produced few progressive political advances. Look beyond style to the record, which includes the facts that JFK: invaded South Vietnam, using chemical warfare and bombing civilians, both war crimes; supported repressive governments throughout Latin America, employing anti-communist rhetoric to continue a policy of making the region safe for U.S. business; pursued a relentless terrorist campaign against Cuba, signaling that no challenge to U.S. regional dominance would be accepted; lied about a missile gap in the 1960 election, intensifying irrational fears of a potential Soviet attack on the United States; and dragged his feet on civil rights, offering rhetoric but little political action. This mythologizing is not only an offense against honest history, but part of a regressive tendency in U.S. politics that valorizes charismatic leadership rather than building truly democratic movements that can challenge power.

A Need for Something


Jordan Smith
If it hadnt been for the multi-part documentary titled The Men Who Killed Kennedy, which Roger Mudd hosted on the History Channel, I would have gone through life not questioning the idea that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone shooter who assassinated the president. Maybe it was Mudds authoritative voice; I was powerless to resist. The series offers a gamut of possibilities about what really happened that day in Dallas: from the Grassy Knoll to Castro, and everything in between. What caught me was the Carousel Club, the joint owned by Oswalds killer, Jack Ruby. As I recall, the episode included interview footage with a woman whod worked there and who said shed been with Ruby and Oswald, drinking and smoking at the club just days before the shooting. Could a plot so secret be discussed so sloppily in a Dallas strip club? For years afterward, I was absolutely certain that one of the myriad conspiracy theories simply Must. Be. True. Now, I dont know. People assure me thats all just a bunch of talk, that it was Oswald and Oswald alone. I trust them, and I believe them. But there is also a part of me that really wants the conspiracy to be true a part that has a need for something far more sinister and more complex to be the source of such an act. What I really want is a reason to reject the far scarier truth: that we are all just that mortal, and just that vulnerable.

Not Just America


Richard Whittaker
I grew up with a song from a TV show canceled six years before I was born. We British do love our political satire, and That Was the Week That Was, or TW3 as it was known, was in the vanguard. When JFK died, the comedians wore somber weeds, but they were not at a loss for words. Show composer David Lee and lyricist Herbert Kretzmer quickly penned In the Summer of His Years. It became famous later in America through versions by Mahalia Jackson, sonorous with martial overtones, and in an elegiac, pastoral interpretation by Connie Francis. But it was first sung, the day after the assassination, by British comedienne Millicent Martin back straight, lit in half shadow, eyes half-closed to hold back tears. The heart of a world weighs heavy, she sang in a clip oft repeated since. That was when I, years after the fact, got it. Kennedy wasnt the possession of a nation. He was heir to diplomats and plutocrats, but rejected the era of top-hat politics. He talked about universal civil rights. He stood in Berlin. He played smart brinkmanship with the Russians. He was everything that crusty old Truman and the simmering Nixon could never be. For a generation, Kennedy was not just America. He was modernity.

A Wonderful , Glorious P lace


Debbie Nathan
The true legacy is not live Kennedy but dead Kennedy. Im a Houstonian from a Jewish, liberal family. In eighth grade, I attended junior high near the headquarters of the ultraright John Birch Society. Birchers roiled with conspiracy theories. The civil rights movement was a commie plot. Water fluoridation to prevent cavities was a commie plot. My teachers parroted these propositions in class. They thought JFK was a plot. When word came on the intercom that he was dead, every kid and adult in sight laughed, except for me and the Latin instructor. Deceased Kennedy signaled the end of hegemony for right-wing conspiracy theory. Thereafter, the biggest ideas came mainly from liberals and lefties. First, of course, was the theory that the CIA helped kill Kennedy. More florid claims have followed. The government started AIDS. The CIA turns little children into

Look Beyond Sty l e


Robert Jensen
Hero worship is politically debilitating, undermining grassroots organizing and impeding honest intellectual practice. A good example is the case of John F. Kennedy. A political assassination is both a personal tragedy for loved ones and an attack on democracy, and the anniversary of JFKs assassination is a time for reflection on that brutality. But it should not be a time to revive the myth of Kennedys Camelot, nor to indulge the historical distortions necessary for such hero worship.

JFK and That Hard Rain


Ninth-grade English, April, 1960: Our teacher asked us to write about the spring, 250 words, but didnt say which spring, so I wrote about every spring I could think of, including the spring in my ballpoint pen and the spring in my step. Every spring but the season of spring. Our assignment soon after: the flag, 250 words. A more complicated subject. I took a roundabout approach. See, like every public school kid in America, I knew the drill: When the sirens screech and the commie Russian atomic missiles head straight for us like a hard rain (as Bob Dylan later put it), well be more or less fine if we crouch under our desks with butts in the air and arms over our heads which proved to me that grownups will lie about anything. We kids saw those bombs explode in newsreels after every show-andtell test. We knew about fallout. We knew, come that hard rain, we shall all die. The whole damn world would die. So in the flag, 250 words, my argument was straightforward: No country was worth the elimination of humanity. If Russia attacks with nukes, it would be fundamentally immoral for the U.S. to retaliate. Let our country be the only country destroyed. If we sacrifice ourselves, there wont be as much fallout and humanity might still have a chance. If humanity survived, and if somewhere in the world an American flag survived, that flag would be the most precious piece of history that ever was, and the United States would be honored by all human beings for thousands and thousands of years. My teacher thought I was dangerously nuts. And only 14 too young to have ideas. But sometimes a 14-year-old can be right. All these years later, I see nothing flawed in my argument. Fast-forward to Monday, October 22, 1962, nine days before my 17th birthday. On every TV channel simultaneously, President John F. Kennedy told us that the Russians had missiles in commie Cuba: We will not prematurely or unnecessarily risk the costs of worldwide nuclear war in which even the fruits of victory would be ashes in our mouth, but neither will we shrink from that risk at any time it must be faced. Wont unnecessarily risk but wont shrink from that risk? In other words, there may soon be a necessary reason to end all our lives, and we should be prepared accordingly. My thoughts went more or less like this (and still do): Kennedys making it sound perfectly reasonable to blow up the whole fucking world. He wants me to think hes on my side? He actually imagines that hes on my side? He is not, in any way, shape, or form, on my side.

In retrospect, I admire at least this kind of legend generated that JFK would about JFK: On 9/11, George W.

Aeolus String Quartet

FORMER GRADUATE STRING QUARTET AT UT HAS GRADUATED TO TEACHING AND A BUSTLING CAREER
Music students are a lot like medieval apprentices. They learn a whole set of unspoken rules, traditions, and techniques that define the art not things you can quickly pick up from a textbook or YouTube, but subtle principles gleaned through a long process of working with master musicians. The Aeolus String Quartet spent two years as the Butler School of Musics first graduate string quartet in residence, during which its members apprenticed with the masterful Mir Quartet, UTs faculty string quartet in residence since 2007. Aeolus first violinist Nicholas Tavani described the period as formative for the quartet, developing such hard-to-pinpoint skills as how to achieve balance in the ensemble, how to communicate with one another during a performance, and nitpicky details like how to release the ends of notes in sync. The Mir Quartet really whipped us into shape! Tavani and Aeolus members Rachel Shapiro, violin; Gregory Luce, viola; and Alan Richardson, cello, are definitely in shape now, playing with buzzing energy and incisiveness. This year, they balance a bustling performance schedule the Smithsonian, Lincoln Center with a new residency at the shiny Juilliard School of Music in New York. And the tables have turned; now Aeolus members are coaching undergraduate chamber groups and passing the skills theyve cultivated down the line. Aeolus returns to Austin this week for Salon Concerts 2013-14 season with a heavy-hitting program including Ravels evocative String Quartet. Tavani describes the composer as a watchmaker who meticulously crafts his music, even though the result sounds gestural and whimsical. Theres not a note out of place in that entire quartet! he exclaims. In contrast stands Amy Beachs 1907 Piano Quintet, which beams with lush harmonies and romantic melodies reminiscent of Brahms. A New Hampshire native, the self-taught Beach became one of the first professionally successful female composers, though her work was less well-

Its a fitting work for Salon Concerts since Artistic Director Kathryn Mishell is a composer herself and producer/host of KMFAs Into the Light, which champions female composers. This is an exciting moment for the musicians of Aeolus, shedding their roles as students and entering the realm of masters while concertizing like crazy. But they still love to visit Austin, where they can see familiar faces in the audience and visit with some of their mentors. And Tavani confides, We miss the food there a lot. Its tacos once a day when were back. Natalie Zeldin
The Aeolus Quartet will perform Sunday, Nov. 24, 4:30pm; and Monday, Nov. 25, 7pm, at locations to be announced, as part of Salon Concerts 2013-14 season. For more information, visit www.salonconcerts.org .

ARTISTS AND VIEWERS CAN MAKE THE MOST OF EAST BY HITTING AUSTINS LARGE STUDIO COMPLEXES
A not-so-secret secret about EAST: You have to wade through an abundance of bad to get to the good. Which is why EAST-ers tend to hedge their bets and begin (or only stop) at the big studio complexes: Pump Project, Canopy, Big Medium, Up Collective, et al. These super-studios are madhouses during the tour filled to the brim with arties and part-time arties popping in and out of studios like whack-a-moles. Drinks flow forth from common areas and individual spaces. Conviviality is currency. For many artists, EAST is the yearly financial windfall they depend on to pay their bills. And who doesnt want artists to make rent and then some? But viewers beware: Just because artists in these venues can pay rent, it doesnt follow that their work is up-to-snuff. The curatorial principle in such spaces is simply real estate supply and demand. Note the common areas, which are either ho-hum samplings of the artists within (Pump Project, Big Medium) or considered curatorial ventures, like the whip-fast collaborations of Michael Ricioppo and Drew Liverman (MASS Gallery) and Ricardo Paniaguas exuberant, obsessive Hard Edge in da Paint (Big Medium Gallery at Canopy). Artists have their own strategies to distinguish themselves in the mazelike complexes. Some, like Jaelah Kuehmichel (Canopy), sell prints, drawings, and small paintings at prices under three figures; instead of selling one big painting, she sells 20 little ones. Others pull out all the stops, mounting mini-retrospectives, like Terri Thomas (Canopy) with her something-for-everyone salmagundi of

ECLOSION PORTRAYS THE NATURAL GLORIES OF INSECTDOM WITH INGENUITY AND WONDER
This is the first EAST for Hayley Gillespies Art.Science.Gallery, and what could be better than to be newly situated in Big Mediums Canopy compound? Well, Art.Science.Gallery, ever about the intersection of rigorous investigation and aesthetic expression, could have opened its display of artwork about insects just as the Entomological Society of America has its 61st annual meeting in Austin. And so they did, and what a terrific show it is. Eclosion, named for the process of an adult insect leaving its cocoon and unveiling its metamorphosed form, features 57 works by 44 artists from across the country and around the world arranged by Gillespie and co-curator Barrett Klein. Austins Matt Norris crafts ants from bicycle chain and custom-cut brass sheets, their smooth and polished body parts supported by spiky, jointed legs in a simple and elegant arrangement of material, caught in static march across a white shelf so different from the intricate, diversely metaled presence of Elizabeth Goluchs Violin Beetle sculpture. Austinite Marjorie Moore provides a lovely watercolor illustration of a cicada, embellished by an array of actual cicada carcasses and wings attached by thread and beeswax. Another watercolorist, Switzerlands Cornelia Hesse-Honegger whom we recall reading about in Hugh Raffles Insectopedia offers studies of a leaf bug possibly deformed by radiation. The entire show radiates something, but its nothing more deforming than beauty and the heights of craft: Whether two- or threedimensional, whether manifest on paper or video screen, posed atop a pedestal or hanging from the ceiling, Eclosion is redolent of wonder made tangible, of natural glories captured by human skill and ingenuity. Hell, you could go to see only Jennifer Angus exquisite Bell Jar #1 and stare into its multileveled tableau of preserved insects, dried flora, and sculpted beeswax for hours, and youd leave the gallery feeling, this was a visit worth taking, this was something I needed to see. Wayne Alan Brenner
Eclosion is on display at Art.Science.Gallery, 916 Springdale, Bldg 3, #102, during the East Austin Studio Tour, which continues Saturday & Sunday, Nov. 23-24, 11am-6pm, throughout East Austin. For more information, visit www.eastaustinstudiotour.com.

End of Time, by Drew Liverman and Michael Ricioppo

Swarovski-studded kitty cats (she calls them pussies), naked clown bondage paintings, and fetishistic door/ objects. Painter Jeana Baumgardner (Pump Project) simply makes quirky, funny, wellexecuted art: Awkward pastel commas and striated blobby forms float against rectilinear grids, their spatial dimensions unresolved. So there are diamonds in the roughs of the super-studios. And so you know, the roughs are rough. Why are so many Austin artists working in the ubiquitous abstract-artas-noninvasive-decoration idiom or the streetart-with-muddy-politics spiel? We really wish we could tell you. Andy Campbell

Sam Coronado: In Memoriam


Austin has lost perhaps its greatest missionary for the art of printmaking. Sam Coronado, who founded the Serie Project and ran the nonprofit screenprinting program for 20 years, allowing scores of artists the opportunity to make prints with his studio space, materials, and guidance, died Nov. 11 following a stroke while on a trip to Indiana to speak at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art. That he was there to talk about the exhibit Graphicanos: Contemporary Latino Prints From the Serie Project illustrates how much a part of his life was devoted to the art of the print. The Ennis, Texas, native knew by age 9 that he wanted to be an artist, and he worked his way up from paint-by-number sets to watercolors to acrylics. Following three years in the Army in the mid-Sixties, Coronado began studying art in earnest, first technical illustration at El Centro Community College in Dallas, then fine art at the University of Texas at Austin, where he cofounded the Chicano Art Students Association. For Coronado, art and activism walked hand in hand. In Houston, he launched Arco Iris, an organization to promote Mexican-American art, and here he joined artists Sylvia Orozco and Pio Pulido in establishing a small warehouse space to showcase work by Latino artists that evolved into Mexic-Arte Museum. Coronado was interested in printmaking before 1990, but a visit to Self-Help Graphics in Los Angeles that year really stoked his passion for the medium. The next

REMEMBERING THE FOUNDER OF THE SERIE PROJECT AND AUSTIN PRINTMAKING LEGEND
year, he opened his own print shop, Coronado Studio, and then founded the Serie Project, which just celebrated its 20th year with retrospectives at Mexic-Arte and 2911 Medical Arts Street #13 (the latter open through Nov. 30). Some 250 artists from across from the United States and Latin America have made prints through the project, a testament to Coronados vision, persistence, and generosity. Coronado was revered for his commitment to inspiring and instructing others, whether they were artists in the Serie Project or his students at Austin Community College, where hed been teaching since 1986. In recent years, Coronado had received some notable recognition induction in the Austin Arts Hall of Fame, a Community Leadership Circle Award from UT-Austin, a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Austin Visual Arts Association, a Lifetime Achievement Award in Visual Arts from MexicArte but I dont think anyone was ready for the 67-year-old to hang up his screens. He still had so much to share with us of his art, of his knowledge, of his generous and humble spirit. Coronado is survived by his wife Jill Ramirez, daughter Sonia Christina Sorenson, grandchildren Victoria and Noah Sorenson, sister Yolanda and brother Ricky, and halfbrothers Johnny and Santos Garcia. The family has asked that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Serie Project to support Coronados legacy. For more information, visit www.serieproject.org. Robert Faires

T H E A RT S

BO O K S November day. The two secretaries had windows of their own. I had almost stayed away that day. There were serious problems at home. Still, I decided this was something I had to see. The problems would still be there when I got off the bus that afternoon. The streets outside were jammed. Theres no other word for it. You could even see people perched on top of buildings. In downtown Dallas, every window in every office was open. Thousands and thousands of open windows everywhere. Around 12:20 we heard the sirens from the motorcycles leading the motorcade. Then, almost at once, sooner than we expected, came the large 61 Lincoln, the bubble top removed so everyone could see. Then, the president and Jackie, and Governor and Mrs. Connally, were directly below us. The president waved. Jackie looked lovely in her pink suit and hat, and then they were gone. I remember thinking how quickly the crowds disappeared. One moment everyone was there, then no one at all. I stayed at the window, peering down the street. The motorcade was out of sight down Main. In a moment, it would turn right on Houston, past the old red courthouse, then left on Elm, and head up Stemmons for the luncheon at the Trade Mart. Our boss had left early to attend. I heard the shots. One. Two. Three. Only seconds later, a police car screeched off Akard onto Main. It turned on two tires, just like on TV. That night, like the rest of the world, we watched the days tragedy unfold again and again on black-and-white TV. We knew Kennedy died at Parkland Hospital. The shooters name was Oswald. They caught him in a theatre in nearby Oak Cliff. Later, we saw LBJ sworn in on Air Force One. Even in black and white, it was clear Jackies suit was still stained with her husbands blood. My daughters, 10 and 7, were sent home from school. They heard what had happened, but didnt know why. They watched their teachers cry. The next day, Saturday, traffic was at a standstill downtown. Like everyone else in Dallas, we wanted to see where it had happened. For over an hour, we scarcely moved an inch. I had the window down and nodded at two motorcycle patrolmen whod pulled up beside us. I could hear the static on their radios. Suddenly, one officer turned to the other and said, Oh God, theyve shot Oswald! Another night of black-and-white TV. We learned Jack Ruby had shot Oswald in the countys underground garage. Years before, a bunch of us had gone to Rubys strip club, a sleazy joint at best, one of the few such clubs in town. My neighbor, Jesse Curry, was chief of police at the time. My two daughters were often down the street playing with his daughter. Jesse came in for a lot of flak after Oswald was shot. There is no question better security could have prevented what happened in that garage. Still, the man at the top takes the heat, and Jesse took plenty. Late that Saturday night, I saw a car parked in front of my house. It was dark, but I could see several men in the front and in the back. I called the police at once. An officer asked me to hold. Those are our people, he said a moment later. Thanks very much for calling. A lot of people forgot there was another security problem that was out of Jesses range. Those open windows along the way. Too many windows to count. Way too many close to the passing car. Sorry for the image, but I was a semi-fair pitcher at the time. I could have hit the man with a brick. Stories flew for some time after the assassination. Everyone had known Oswald, Ruby, Oswalds wife, anyone and everyone who had been associated with that afternoon in November. I heard more stories than I can possibly recall. Many of these tales were clearly ridiculous. Some revealed things you must never tell anyone at all. A lot of stories were more frightening than I could imagine, then or now. Gov. John Connally and his wife had been in the front seat of the Kennedy car. Connally was wounded and took some time to recover. He and my father were good friends. I still have the letter he sent, thanking Neal Barrett Jr. my father for his concern. Connally signed his name in a very shaky hand. I think everyone who was there that day was changed in some way by Kennedys death. A crazy thought, I guess, but I wondered how astonished the man would be if he could have guessed his father, mother, wife, son, two brothers, three sisters, and a number of others in the Kennedy clan would die in the years after his passing. My own life was changing at the time. I couldnt imagine the bad times on the way, but I would live to see my losses, and the better days that would come along as well. There was someone else watching the tragic events that day, someone I didnt know at all. I would meet her in 1974, and better days have turned into better years. n

The very worst dream youll ever have is the one you know isnt really a dream at all
BY NEAL BARRETT JR.
Everyone said it was a really nice day for November. That time of year in Dallas, rain, cutting winds, and dark skies would not be unusual at all. On top of good weather, we were halfway through Friday, Thanksgiving only days away. I worked in the PR department on the third floor at Southwestern Life, on the corner of Main and Akard. We were definitely in Downtown Dallas at the time. Parades, celebrations, special events of any kind always came our way. Around noon every day, three of us from the office grabbed hot dogs at Orange Julius and played a quick game of pool before we headed back. This day, though, we stayed in. Wed run out to lunch a little later, after the president and Jackie drove by. Its hard to imagine all this happened nearly 50 years ago. That dreary phrase Things have really changed scarcely hits the mark at all. I worked in a very nice office, top-rate for 1963. The walls were uncolor blue. Chairs, floors, tables, and doors had the unforgettable glow of antiquated oak, the same as every classroom in the land. In other departments, men hunched over high tables, recording by hand payments, premiums, and other such matters in large gray ledgers. Charles Dickens could have slipped right in at ease. Every man in the company wore suits (sports coats, never), white shirts, and ties. As an act of reckless abandon, I once walked down to Bonds mens store and bought a white shirt with narrow red stripes, stripes you needed glasses to see. I wore it the very next day. Word went through the building, but nothing was really said.

JFK:
GONE 50 YEARS

A sign of the times was the open window. A/C was confined to movies and stores. In the PR department, we often leaned out windows and watched the buildings across the way or the people below. Straight down below was the sidewalk. Three steps more and there was Main, traffic passing by. This is where we were, two other guys and I, moments before noon on a fine

THE A R TS father. It really touched her. And it really meant a lot to me, because here is this situation where this man just took over the presidency under tragic conditions, and in those four days he took the time hes now the President of the United States, but he took the time to write two individual letters to his predecessors children. That says something about the character of the man, the person. Though only a boy in 1963, Cranston says JFKs assassination had a profound impact on him, not because I understood directly the event, but I saw the effects it had on all of the adults around me. It destroyed them. These grown men and women in each others arms, weeping, and I realized that what just happened was important, and I needed to pay attention. That was my introduction into politics and how it related to me, even as a young boy. All the Way, which was one of the winners of the inaugural Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama Inspired by American History and the winner of the 2013 Steinberg/ ATCA New Play Award and is bound for Broadway, opens with the newly sworn-in Johnson on Air Force One flying to Washington from Dallas. Sitting alone, he wakes from a nightmare in which hes in a Hill Country cabin under attack from Comanches. Schenkkan chose that scene to launch his take on LBJ, because he wanted to thrust the audience into the meat of the dramatic attack this terrible moment of confusion, fear, horror, and opportunity and to see this man, who has spent his entire life to get to this point, suddenly finding himself there not in any way that he would have chosen, but by God, he is there now and the dramatic question is: Now that hes President, what does LBJ really want? And thats what the play answers. n

This Terrible Moment


All the Way playwright Robert Schenkkan and his LBJ, Bryan Cranston, on JFKs assassination
BY ROBERT FAIRES
Bryan Cranston had the LBJ Presidential Library and Museum all to himself. The Breaking Bad star, preparing to play Lyndon Johnson in a production of Robert Schenkkans award-winning drama All the Way at American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Mass., had come to research the former commander-inchief, and the staff had given him access to the building after hours. If you think the place can feel like a monumental mausoleum when its full of visitors, imagine what its like when youre alone. A little ominous was Cranstons description to a group of reporters quizzing him and Schenkkan about All the Way prior to their joint appearance at the librarys 2013 Harry Middleton Lecture, Nov. 14. Asked what he found then that interested him the most, Cranston turned to a memento from the wake of John Kennedys assassination: A very little thing, but it meant a lot to me, he said. There was a letter from Jacqueline Kennedy to Lyndon Johnson about four days after the assassination, and in it she thanked him and praised him for his courage to walk with Jack during the funeral procession down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C.

It All Began So Beautifully


LBJ LIBRARY AND MUSEUM HOUSES AUSTINS KEY CONNECTION TO THE KENNEDY ASSASSINATION
by Kate X Messer
As raw and unintentionally unkind as it sounds, the presidency of Lyndon Baines Johnson issued from the same barrel that killed JFK. His first inauguration occurred aboard Air Force One in Dallas. The picture of solemn, dog-faced Johnson being sworn in with wife Lady Bird and grieving First Widow Jackie Kennedy at his flanks is still jarring 50 years hence. The image fills a large section of a wall in the room at the LBJ Presidential Library and Museum named simply, November 22, 1963. The recent redesign of the public portion of the LBJ Museum includes a major shift in how Johnsons life especially his years in the White House is presented. The center core on the second floor that previously housed visiting exhibits (like 2010s Cronkite: Eyewitness to a Century and 2004s Signs of the Times: Life in the Swingin Sixties) is now the permanent site of the gallery November 22, 1963. Upon entry into the gallery, visitors are led into the sights and sounds of that day. Motion sensors trigger chilling audio of Lady Bird Johnson reciting from her diary: Friday, November 22: It all began so beautifully. After a drizzle in the morning, the sun came out bright and beautiful. We were going into Dallas. In the lead car, President and Mrs. Kennedy, John and Nellie [Connally], and then a secret service car full of men The streets were lined with people lots and lots of people the children all smiling, placards, confetti, people waving from windows. One last happy moment I had was looking up and seeing Mary Griffith leaning out of a window waving at me. Lady Birds achingly hollow tone punctuates the harrowing events of the day. The focal points of the room are floor-toceiling snapshots of history: Jack in the convertible, the motorcade traversing the avenue, and the makeshift inaugural. The blackand-white murals serve as backdrops for displays of the tangible items of that day: the suit and dress worn by LBJ and Lady Bird during the swearing-in and the missal used; front pages from The Washington Post, The Dallas Morning News, and The New York Times; the Texas Welcome Dinner program from the event that was to have happened that night in Austin; and the full text of JFKs Trade Mart speech that he never gave. Looming behind, on its own wall, is a hardbound edition of the hotly debated Warren Commission Report. Around the corner is an array of stationery, a heartbreaking letter to the new president in

Jackie Kennedys handwriting: Thank you for walking yesterday behind Jack I always thought, way before the nomination that Lady Bird should be First Lady but I dont need to tell you here what I think of her qualities her extraordinary grace of character . She goes on to apologize for the children on the lawn during his first day in office. Elsewhere, on the ground floor, across from the freshly madeover LBJ animatronic, is a bank of telephones and touch screens titled Please Hold for the President. Visitors may pick up an old-school phone receiver and listen to recordings of conversations like so many future Watergate buggers between LBJ and a host of historic figures in the first days after the assassination: Gerald Ford, Nellie Connally, Rose Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., and more. The library has also just launched its new web chronicle, Tragedy and Transition, in honor of the 50th anniversary of that fateful Nov. 22. The collection boasts 56 pages of downloadable archival materials, including very recent interviews with Luci Baines Johnson and Lynda Bird Johnson Robb. In addition to this extensive collection, the library offers an online finding aid to the museums holdings about the transition including transcribed oral histories, press clippings, office files, White House telephone logs, and personal papers which may be accessed in person by appointment. LBJs first response as president was to console a nation, asserts one display in November 22, 1963. In fulfilling his vision of FDRs New Deal, Johnson also moved forward JFKs agenda: civil rights, the environment, the space program, the war on poverty, and so much more. The day that began so beautifully did not end so. It changed the world forever and launched a presidency that began with a shot. n
The Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum, 2313 Red River, is open 9am-5pm every day except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Day. The research room is open 9am-5pm weekdays (except federal holidays). Appointment recommended. Tragedy and Transition may be accessed at www.transition.lbjlibrary.org. For more information, call 512/721-0200 or visit.www.lbjlibrary.org.

Fixing King John

The Off Center, 2211 Hidalgo www.rudemechs.com Through Nov. 24 Running time: 2 hr.
Fixing King John is a theatrical experiment that careens through the evening at highway speed, barreling along through some approximation of the Shakespearean play. There are probably safer speeds at which to travel, but damn, that was fun. Kirk Lynns adaptation, with direction from Madge Darlington, is loose and gangly in its treatment of the original work. To those at all familiar with Lynns other writing or the work of several of the cast members, seeing this Rude Mechanicals production is a bit like going to a bar with the company and listening to them duke it out over some idea or theatrical position for the sheer love of the debate. The language of the script is reminiscent of verse, but it freely breaks from any kind of iambic guideline when the content needs a little more room. The original King John is one of Shakespeares lesser-known history plays, telling of King John who went to war with King Philip of France. A cardinal whom John has displeased maneuvers against him, using threats of excommuni-

cation to turn shaky allies into enemies. There is a lot of death. Fixing King John also has a lot of death, and a lot of laughs, too. It mashes together several characters and mixes up a number of plot points, but all in the service of what winds up being a remarkably original play. The actors perform in the round and also from various spots in the audience, who sit on varying levels of platforms built for the show. (The program credits Thomas Graves and Darlington with the Environment.) The costumes (designed by Olivia Warner) are essentially street clothes, with the odd sword or crown thrown in. The overall design is kept simple to allow the play and the actors to dominate. Fixing King John features one of those strong ensemble performances (including Chronicle Arts Editor Robert Faires as the Bastard) in which you almost hate to cite one actor for good work over any others but here, theres something about Barbara Chisholms explosive passion and bloodlust as Constance thats irresistible. To hear Chisholm (who is married to Faires, by the way small town, eh?) excoriate the male characters and urge them to battle is to get a full blast of womanly rage, lust, and power, and

Blood Wedding

Mary Moody Northen Theatre, 3001 S. Congress, 512/448-8484 www.stedwards.edu/theatre Through Nov. 24 Running time: 1 hr., 30 min.
The late, great poet-playwright Federico Garca Lorca has been quoted as asserting that great art depends upon a vivid awareness of death, connection with a nations soil, and an acknowledgment of the limitations of reason. Add to this fundamental aesthetic philosophy a solid troupe of players, outstanding direction, and a fine design team, and you get the production of Lorcas Blood Wedding, currently onstage at St. Edwards University. One of the most beautiful aspects of Blood Wedding and, purportedly, one of Lorcas greatest concerns when mounting the original production is embodied in that limitation of reason, the shifting ground between prose/realism and poetry/fantasy. In his staging, director Robert Tolaro melds the worlds of song, dance, and scene with an impressive fluidity, and his actors commit to the flamenco-style glue that binds these elements together with wholehearted zest. Senior Hannah Marie Fonder deserves special note for her masterfully nuanced personification of death that forebodes throughout the evening. If great art depends upon a vivid awareness of death, Fonders performance as its harbinger contributes mightily to this productions success. Similarly outstanding work comes from Babs George and J. Ben Wolfe, who portray the Mother (of the Groom) and the Father of the Bride. The severity of Georges striking Mother cuts as sharply through the thick air of Lorcas play as the knife her character so despises. Wolfes characterization provides a gentle counterpoint to Georges, creating dynamism between the two portrayals that is excellently balanced. As the Bridegroom and the Bride, Alec Esteban Cudmore and Anna Schultz turn in similarly fine, complementary characterizations. I would be remiss not to mention the work of Matthew Webb, whose superb lighting design here not only provides a feast for the eyes, but also serves to illuminate literally the joining of elements real and fantastic. One scene in particular stands out, wherein splotches of radiant color canvas the entire stage floor. Its a moment worthy of a top-notch design portfolio. Blood Wedding represents one third of what critics often refer to as Lorcas Rural Trilogy. The connection with his nations soil is especially palpable in the playwrights works, and not least so here. Folkloric imagery abounds in the design and movement work, excellent music (composed collaboratively by Brittany Allyson, Dillon Ford, Jon Richardson, and Eric SwabeyKeith) provides the distinctive aural setting, and a dedication to evoking the air of rural Spain pours forth from the entire onstage ensemble. At every turn, MMNTs production of Blood Wedding attains the synergy necessary to pull off a riveting evening of theatre from all angles. Adam Roberts

to share some of Chisholms delight in blasting people with her impressive force. Fixing King John also permits some moments of quiet thought. Even with the raucous fun of most of the play, these times when the actors are able to say something honest and unadorned are what make Fixing King John the sort of show that sticks with you, days later. Its a fiercely energetic production whose subtler moments give it meaning and beauty. Elizabeth Cobbe

The pop-up chocolate shop at Antonellis Cheese Shop (4220 Duval St.) featuring chocolatier Steven Lawrence of the Chocolate Makers Studio was a hit, with guests moaning with pleasure as they sipped tiny cups of decadent hot chocolate and nibbled samples of designer truffles and custom chocolate bars. Its still possible to order chocolates to be picked up at Antonellis on Nov. 24 and Dec. 20. A recap of Saturdays Faradays annual Holiday Baking Contest with names of the winners, photos, and a winning recipe appears online this week at austin chronicle.com/food. Pastry chef Janina OLeary was a member of the judging panel, and she divulged shes the executive pastry chef for the upcoming LaV restaurant (1501 E. Seventh), which opens in early 2014. Shes currently developing a program that will include rustic breads, pastries, and plated desserts for the restaurant. Theres plenty of local barbecue news. Sales have been so brisk at the new Schmidt Family Barbecue location in Bee Cave (12532 FM 2244) that co-owner Susie Schmidt Franks reports they are already having another pit built for the restaurant... The lot that is home to La Barbecue (1502 S. First) has been sold, so theyll be moving to a space at East Sixth and Waller behind the old Uptown Sports Bar after the close of business on Dec. 1, and reopening in the new spot on Dec. 4. They really need a good brick-andmortar spot in which to expand their pit capacity... Another multigeneration contingent of a venerable Lockhart barbecue family announced their intention to take on the Austin market last week when brothers Mark and Michael Black (greatgrandsons of Edgar Black Sr.) hung a banner on the old Holiday House (1003 Barton Springs Rd.) proclaiming Blacks Barbecue A Lockhart Family Tradition Coming Soon. However, Eric Lenderman, operations manager of the original Blacks Barbecue (215 N. Main in Lockhart), tells us the new Austin outlet is not affiliated with the Lockhart original, and there will be some legal wrangling about the use of the family name. Looks like were in store for another surefire Central Texas barbecue family melodrama, folks. Well keep you posted. The annual Good Food Awards nominees have been announced, and Austin is well-represented once again. Kudos to nominees Jester King Brewery, Independence Brewing Co., Pt Letelier, Pure Luck Farm & Dairy, Trace at the W, the Jelly Queens, and Confituras. Best of luck to them all! Winners of the Good Food Awards will be announced at a gala in San Francisco in January.

Mary Catherine and Chef Andrew Curren

Friends who chose the lobster bisque and dainty vegetable tart ($8) were much happier with their choices, and a stuffed quail entre competed with a filet of grilled amberjack for the winningest entres. The best deal on the table was the $25 prix fixe menu with lobster bisque, mussels and frites, and a chocolate pot de crme, but here again, the mussel broth was overpowered by the kitchens heavy hand with sherry. As a baker by trade, I really appreciate Arros excellent breads and pastries. For my money, Easy Tiger bakery honcho David Norman is one of the best bakers in town right now, and we found Arros bread service ($2 per person) with flavored, whipped butters the perfect way to begin a French meal. Im now a serious fan of Mary Catherine Currens desserts her delicate, buttery tart crusts and crisp shortbread wafers are heaven to a crisp-cookie-lover like me. The salted chocolate chip cookie sandwich with Cognac ice cream ($7) on the new happy hour menu has my name all over it. Ill be going back to Arro, but with a mindful eye toward the dishes that are executed to my tastes. Virginia B. Wood

Mayan Hummus (Sikil Paak)


Gluten-free, paleo Prep time: 10 min. Cook time: 45 min. Yield: 5 cups

2 cups (9-10 ounces) hulled pumpkin seeds (pepitas) 2 teaspoons cumin seeds 1 teaspoon dried Mexican oregano medium onion, chopped 6 scallions, chopped 6 cloves garlic, chopped 6 tomatillos, husked and rinsed, chopped 1 cup cilantro, roughly chopped, plus extra sprigs or leaves for garnish cup parsley, roughly chopped 6 interior romaine leaves, roughly chopped 6 large radish leaves, roughly chopped 6-9 serrano chiles, stemmed and roughly chopped (to taste) 5 cups rich turkey or chicken broth 1 teaspoon salt (to taste) 3 tablespoons avocado or olive oil
1) Dry toast the pumpkin seeds in a large skillet or comal over medium heat until they have popped and turned golden (it should take about 5 minutes). Add the cumin seeds and oregano, and toast until fragrant. Spread the mixture out and let cool to room temperature.

Stir in the remaining 2 cups of the broth, partially cover, and simmer 20 minutes. 3) Scrape the sauce into a blender, loosely cover, and blend to a smooth pure; you might need to add a little extra broth (or water) to attain a medium consistency. Rinse the saucepan and return the blended sauce to it, taste and season with salt, and keep warm until service, stirring occasionally. 4) Garnish with the reserved pumpkin seeds and cilantro sprigs. Excellent with grilled, sauted, or braised chicken or turkey.

I found this recipe in some old historical Mayan research and then tweaked it. I made a version of it for the end-of-the-world Mayan food party at Rancho Winslow last year, and we were all blown away by how good it was, and how unique the flavor is. It became known in our recipe shorthand as Mayan hummus. Paak is Mayan for tomato and sikil means squash seed (close enough to pumpkin seeds, right?), and it dates back to pre-conquest times. While it is delicious any time of the year, this dip was traditionally served in the autumn, when pumpkin seeds were used to celebrate the harvest. Mick Vann

Raw Cranberry Relish


Vegan, gluten-free, raw, optional paleo Prep time: 5 min. Yield: about 3 cups

This creative, raw-foods recipe is an alternative to cranberry sauce and is packed with layers of flavor. It is quick and easy to prepare and will spice up any holiday meal. If you want to make it paleo, you can substitute the brown sugar for a natural sweetener, like Grade B maple syrup, or brave the tartness and leave sweetener out altogether. M.S.

2 bags cranberries 4 tablespoons red onion 1 tablespoon garlic 4 seeded jalapeos 1 teaspoon salt 2 bunches cilantro or parsley 1 cup lime juice 2 cups brown sugar

1) Chop cranberries in processor. 2) Chop onion, garlic, peppers, salt, and cilantro. 3) Mix in bowl. 4) Add lime and sugar.

In a season commonly dedicated to pleasing the omnivorous among us, a meat-free main course is always a welcome addition to shared meals, particularly when its both substantial and delicious for a variety of diets. Though Moosewood Collective is based in Ithaca, New York, their odes to vegetarian Southern comfort food have become staple recipes and regular Blue Plate Specials. Appealing both in texture and flavor, the Dixie Tofu-Pecan Loaf proves a hearty late-fall entre, excellent for a Thanksgiving table. The nutty flavor of toasted pecans pairs warmly with the herbal notes and creamy layers of Caramelized Onion Gravy (see recipe, p.50). Jessi Cape

T H A N K SG I V U K A H 201 3 : H OW TO C E L E B R AT E T H I S O NC E - I N - A - L I F E T I M E H O L I DAY
Americans mark the fourth Thursday of every November by gathering with family around the ceremonial turkey and gobbling up sweet potatoes and pie. But this year, for the first time since 1888, and the last time for another 70,000 years (not a typo!), Chanukah begins on Thanksgiving. Supporters coined the day Thanksgivukah. At first, celebrants were confused; these holidays dont appear to have much in common, so how can we celebrate both? But there is an obvious connection that gluttons picked up on immediately: the food. The eight-day Jewish holiday of Chanukah celebrates the victory of the Maccabees over the Syrians in 165 BC and the rededication of the Temple with a small amount of oil that miraculously lasted in a candelabra for eight days. To celebrate, Jews eat food fried in oil, such as latkes (potato pancakes) and sufganiyot (doughnuts), and light the menorah. With the fried food of Chanukah and the all-American carb-fest known as Thanksgiving, Thanksgivukah is not a day to attempt to start your diet. In anticipating this historic convergence, I immediately began playing around with combo recipes: Mashed Potato Latkes, Apple Pie Sufganiyot, and these Brussels Sprouts Latkes. Our house is divided in the green-bean-casserole-vs.-brusselssprouts camp. I grew up without the mushroom soup concoction in favor of fresh vegetables, but as a compromise, I cooked up this fried version with sweet dried cranberries, and topped with sour cream. Amy Kritzer You can even add french-fried onion garnish. Sounds like the start of a new tradition!

The oil is hot enough when it starts to sizzle when a bit of the batter is dropped in. 3) Form the brussels sprouts into -inch thick patties and fry for 3 minutes until golden brown. Flip and fry the other side for 3 more minutes. 4) Immediately blot oil on a paper towel and season with salt. Serve hot with sour cream.

1) Slice the onions in half, top to bottom, and then thinly slice stem end to root end. Heat the oil in a soup pot. Add the onions and cook for 3 minutes on medium heat, stirring constantly. 2) Stir in the salt, thyme, and rosemary, and cook, uncovered, for about 25 minutes, stirring frequently. As the onions begin to stick a little to the pan, they are beginning to caramelize. Scrape them free and stir well. The onions will soften and brown if they begin to scorch, the heat is too high. 3) When the onions have browned and are absolutely soft, add the soy sauce and sherry and stir well. Continue to cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir in the hot water and bring to a simmer. 4) Stir the cornstarch and cold water together in a small cup or bowl until smooth. Pour into the simmering gravy while stirring, and continue to stir until thickened. If the gravy isnt thick enough, mix an additional tablespoon of cornstarch with a tablespoon of cold water and stir it into the gravy while it simmers. Lastly, stir in the black pepper.

Garlic Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

Paleo, gluten-free Adapted from www.nomnompaleo.com Cook time: 20 min. Yield: 6-8 servings
As the popularity of the paleo diet grows, so do the chances that youll be hosting someone at your Thanksgiving dinner who follows the eating plan. The principles of the paleo diet, generally speaking, include limiting (or eliminating completely) dairy, grains, and processed sugars and emphasizing lean proteins, vegetables, and good fats from nuts, avocado, coconut oil, and so on. These recipes are guaranteed to satisfy your paleo guests, and maybe even inspire you to incorporate this approach into your daily diet. Melanie Haupt

1 large head cauliflower 5 large cloves garlic 2 tablespoons butter Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1) Wash and trim the cauliflower and cut it into medium-sized chunks for steaming. 2) Peel and slice garlic. 3) Place the cauliflower and garlic in a vegetable steamer and salt to taste. 4) Steam until soft (10-15 minutes). 5) Transfer the steamed cauliflower and garlic to a food processor. Add the butter and freshly ground black pepper. 6) Process until smooth. Add more salt and pepper as necessary.

salacious on paper: December Bride is interested in the love affairs only insofar as they affect Sarahs development as a protofeminist and original thinker. Those bachelor brothers are played by the terrific character actors Ciarn Hinds (Persuasion, Game of Thrones) and Donal McCann (The Dead, Stealing Beauty); certainly one of the primary pleasures of the AFS series is in its early looks at Irish acting talent that would eventually wash up on our shores. Quite a few pop up in Nothing Personal, another period film by OSullivan. This one vaults to Belfast, 1975, an indicator not just of time and place but plot description in the same way that 1957, Algeria distilled The Battle of Algiers, the influence of which OSullivan openly acknowledges. At first it is pointedly difficult to parse whos fighting for which side in this war zone. The soulful John Lynch (Angel Baby) plays a Catholic single father trying to stay above the fray, while James Frain (The Tudors) is a capo in a paramilitary group, with the great Michael Gambon (Harry Potters Dumbledore) as his captain and Ian Hart (Professor Quirrell, incidentally) as his once trusted companion turned feral dog. The only film in the series to explicitly address the Troubles, Nothing Personal charts roughly 24 hours in bars and back alleys for an eloquent, if shuddering, evocation of humanity filed down to the quick. The mood lightens with The Last Bus Home, about two proNothing Personal vincial punk rockers who sit out the popes visit in 1979 to croon Teenage Kicks as an overture to new love. (It has to be said that Bran F. OByrne, unfortunately saddled with Dana Carvey hair, looks too middle-aged for this portrait of youthful angst.) At first its all fun and anarchy, a joyful middle finger to the man, the church, and parents who just dont (and will never, ever) understand, but real life catches up with the lovers: Try as they might, theres just no getting out from American audiences.

Pluck of the Irish

AFS ESSENTIAL CINEMA HAND-PICKS FOUR NIGHTS OF RARE IRISH FILMMAKING


Ireland has produced one long bumper crop of storytellers an Irishmans heart is nothing but his imagination, quoth native son George Bernard Shaw and yet for most of the 20th century, the story of Ireland on film was left largely to foreign filmmakers. Think The Quiet Man, Ryans Daughter, Barry Lyndon all made by outsider artists. Thats an unlikely sobriquet for screen titans John Ford, David Lean, and Stanley Kubrick, but their films were undeniably the work of outsiders looking in, sometimes with a rose-colored viewfinder. After all, you dont visit Ireland without kissing the Blarney Stone. It wasnt until the late Seventies and early Eighties that a proper first wave of indigenous filmmakers emerged in Ireland, and most of them didnt catch much traction off the island. The Austin Film Societys latest Essential Cinema series skips over Irelands most celebrated contemporary exports, like Neil Jordans The Crying Game and Jim Sheridans My Left Foot; in his introduction to the series, guest curator Philip Fagan notes that both directors have demonstrated an ability to couch their Irish themes in forms that have international appeal and translate easily to

Randi Zuckerbergs Dot Complicated World


FORMER FACEBOOK MARKETING DIRECTOR VISITS THE TEXAS CONFERENCE FOR WOMEN
by Jessi Cape
Emerging from the shadow of success associated with the surname Zuckerberg is not for the faint of heart. But at Randi Zuckerbergs talk at the 14th annual Texas Conference for Women on Tuesday, one couldnt help but silently congratulate her determination. The former marketing director for Facebook now CEO of Zuckerberg Media and newly minted New York Times bestselling author, Zuckerberg highlighted the milestones of her life after university (she graduated from Harvard; her brother did not) and bullet-pointed the decisions she attributes to her current career success in the techie world of social media and marketing. Full of sound bites (really follow your dreams and be bold about advertising your successes because a man in your shoes wouldnt hesitate) and quick quips (Who gets a call from the White House besides Jack Bauer?), her talk seemed to fully engage the large audience. In the Q&A, Zuckerberg broke out thoughtful (if practiced) and surprisingly creative responses to questions on the societal woes of social media, the increasingly precarious navigation of how children interact with technology, and the balance between assistance and interference with near-constant digital interaction. Zuckerbergs answers suggested concepts ranging from a self-imposed digital Shabbat to co-working spaces to using digital time allowances for kids to unplug. These dot complications inspired her two new books. The nonfiction, Dot Complicated: Untangling Our Wired Lives, seeks (along with its related Web community) to fill a perceived

gap for all of us who are way more tech-savvy than we give ourselves credit for, and [who] are just trying to navigate our lives, our children, our work, dating all of these crazy things that have changed in wired world. Of her new childrens book, starring little girl Dot, Zuckerberg said, its just a reminder for children and adults that there is a beautiful world when you look up from your device. And thats a Zuckerberg legacy all its own. n

Stan the Man


The legendary name behind Marvel Comics comes to town for Wizard World
BY R I C H A R D W H I T TA K E R
If comics have a face, its not a masked web-slinger or a jade-skinned giant or a hammer-wielding Norse god. Its a 91-year-old native New Yorker with the heart of a child, an imagination that soared across the galaxy, and an impish sense of humor. Im Stan Lee, the founder of Marvel Comics tells me from his West Coast home. I think. Its early in the morning. Stan Lee defined comics. As publisher, writer, and editor at Marvel Comics, this weeks guest of honor at Wizard World Austin Comic Con shaped what the superhero genre has become. He said, What I tried to do was pay as much attention to the characters personal life as his superhero life. A superhero who can do anything, to me, isnt that interesting. The reader could look at the character and instantly associate. Spider-Man fretted about his aging aunts health. Daredevil was a working lawyer. Even the Fantastic Four were just tenants at the Baxter Building, dealing with an angry landlord every time Skrulls took the service elevator. The equation for grounding a character is simple: First of all, you have to make the reader care about him. Then you have to make the reader worry about him. A chuckle. I dont want to say anything more, because I dont want all our competitors to know how to write these stories. After 61 years of publication, that Marvel equation still wins audiences, and not just at the comic store. Marvel Comics has now become Marvel Studios, and the characters Lee co-created the Fantastic Four, the Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, the X-Men, Daredevil, and Spider-Man have grossed over $9 billion globally at the box office. Add in titles he oversaw in The Avengers, Captain America, and more, and Lees brainchildren have grossed upwards of $12 billion for Hollywood. Not bad for an Errol Flynn-obsessed kid from the Bronx. Make no mistake, Marvel is New York, and New York is Marvel. Even with all this Hollywood success, the comic divisions head offices are still just a block away from Radio City Music Hall walking distance for most of Marvels mightiest heroes. That was always part of Lees plans. He said, Even though they were superhero stories, I wanted to make them seem as realistic as possible, so I wanted to set them in a real city. I didnt want a Gotham or a Metropolis.
Stan Lee

SC R E E N S

I lived in New York, I knew New York, and its the greatest city in the world to set a story in. The lights of the Big Apple still illuminate the company they call the House of Ideas. Last week, Disney and Netflix announced their latest project: four interlocking miniseries centering on a quartet of street-level heroes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage. Together, they will form the streetwise, knuckle-cracking answer to the lofty Avengers the Defenders. All four reside around the slowly gentrifying neighborhood of Hells Kitchen another part of Lees legacy. If I wanted to have a guest star in a story, it was easy for them to meet. They were all in the same city.

These live-action TV and movie excursions have not replaced comics. In fact, they are helping resurrect them. Between Marvel and DCs current cinematic crop, plus fans of AMCs The Walking Dead heading to the bookstore, sales are already up 10% over 2012. It wasnt always so. Marvel spent years laboring away on cut-rate movies and low-budget TV shows like The Incredible Hulk. They had kitsch charm, but they lacked the cosmic thrill of Galactus towering over Times Square, or Doctor Doom testing his strength against the Thing. Now, when Thor casts his mighty hammer Mjlnir into the ranks of dark elves, it leaps straight off the page. They couldnt have been done years ago, because we didnt have the special effects capability, Lee said. Now theres nothing you can dream of that they cant put on the screen. Even when the movie bubble finally bursts and many see it as when, not if the comic presses will still keep rolling, and digital readers will still keep downloading. Whether in 4K projection or four-color pulps, theres a simple joy to seeing Captain America take down the Red Skull, or when the Hulk whips Loki around like a dog with a sock. For Lee, it all comes down to good vs. evil. Comics are like fairy tales for grownups, he explained. When you were a kid, you loved reading about witches and dragons and monsters. Now youre grown up, youre too old to read fairy tales, but suddenly there are these superheroes, and theyre the same kind of stories, with villains that are bigger and scarier than life, and heroes who are bigger than life. Lee himself seems a little larger than life. While most of his peers are either dead or retired, hes still chairman emeritus at Marvel, as well as running POW! Entertainment, whose new animated show Stan Lees Mighty 7 will debut on the Hub Network in 2014. He even released his own signature cologne. I cant think of anything better to do. If I could, Id drop this in a minute. Not that hes stuck behind a desk. Two weeks before this weekends Austin adventure, he held his own convention, Comikaze, in Los Angeles another opportunity to meet the generations of readers who grew up on his creations. I dont consider them fans, Lee said. Theyre all friends. We have a good time together, we kid around, and if I wasnt doing this, Id probably end up bored sick, playing golf. n

Now theres nothing you can dream of that they cant put on the screen. Stan Lee

UNCLEAR ON THE CONCEPT


In September, San Diego Superior Court Judge Patricia Cookson, perhaps sensing an autumnal whiff of romance in the courthouse, agreed to perform the wedding ceremony, in her courtroom, of Mr. Danne Desbrow and his fiance, Destiny and even to serve the lucky couple homemade cake afterward. However, Judge Cookson did all of this immediately after sentencing Desbrow to a 53-year-to-life term for first-degree murder and for threatening a witness. Many parents long for armed protection for their kids at school, but a few parents at Entz Elementary in Mesa, Ariz., have the opposite concern and demanded that local cop (and parent) Scott Urkov not wear his service weapon, or uniform, when he drops his child off in the morning. The principal sided with the complaining parents (although at least one mother defended Urkov, albeit defining the issue primarily as his right to be in uniform as he heads off to work). The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has been delaying a decision for months about whether to punish the Apache ASL Trails housing complex in Tempe, Ariz., for the sin of renting 85% of its units to the hearing-impaired for whom the facility was actually designed (equipped with comfort and safety features to serve the deaf). However, HUD has threatened to withhold federal funding because Apache is suspected of illegally discriminating against the non-hearing-impaired (who, under guidelines, should, HUD believes, occupy three-fourths of Apaches units). State officials and Arizonas congressional delegation have voiced pride in Apaches mission, but the HUD secretarys indecisiveness has left Apache tenants in limbo, according to a September Arizona Republic report. This year, the Florida legislature passed the Timely Justice Act to cut short the legal dawdling that allows death row inmates to postpone their executions sometimes for more than 25 years. Among the first victims of the act was to be Marshall Gore, set to be executed in September for two 1988 murders. However, his date was once again postponed because Floridas tough-on-crime attorney general had scheduled a re-election campaign fundraiser that conflicted with her presence at the execution. (Gore will instead die in January.)

In July, several foreign news sites publicized the current Guinness Book record held by Jemal Tkeshelashvili of the Republic of Georgia, who blew up ordinary drugstore hot water bottles to the point where they would explode using only air from his nose. His record was three within one minute, but perhaps equally impressive, he subsequently dazzled Discovery Channel viewers by reportedly partially nose-inflating a hot water bottle being held down by a small car.

WORTH THE COMMUTE


Downtown London residences are known to be staggeringly expensive, but media blogger Sam Cookney calculated in October just how much. Cookney said he can live in an upscale apartment in Barcelona, Spain, and commute almost every workday to London (700 miles away) for less money than a modest central London rental. (Sixteen commuter days over four weeks a month would run, in pound-dollar equivalents: $2,420 for a West Hampstead rental, $121 council tax, and $188 transit travel card, totaling $2,730. Barcelona, in euro-dollar equivalents: $938 for a three-bedroom flat with three balconies near transit, no tax, $47 daily round-trip on Ryanair, $32 a day in airport transportation, totaling $2,202 a savings of $528 a month.) Plus, he said, sunny Barcelona is on the Mediterranean. (On the other hand, Cookney luckily can work on the plane, for each flight is two hours long.)

CANT POSSIBLY BE TRUE


Lawyers for Radu Dogaru, who is on trial in Romania for stealing masterpieces last year from the Kunsthal museum in Rotterdam, Netherlands, said the heist was also the museums fault for having such unimaginably lax security and that if the museum did not admit that, Dogaru would sue. Museum officials said they had tracked some of the works to Dogarus mother, who is claiming ignorance, and the sons lawyers hope to discount any insurance-company judgments against her by spreading the blame.

The online retailer Amazon.com maintains a side business of operating massive Internetcapacity cloud farms and contracts out space to some of the worlds largest entities, including U.S. government agencies. In a case brought to light in October by a U.S. Court of Claims ruling, Amazon had won its bid against IBM for a cloud contract with the CIA, but had gone a step further by actually improving the CIAs system and implementing a better plan. In the bizarre world of government contracts, that created a fairness problem, as IBM argued that its rights were violated because the specified contract work was no longer exactly what was being done (i.e., the clients work was being done better). IBM lodged a time-consuming protest, but later dropped the suit. Update: Perhaps thousands of Baghdad residents have been killed by bomb couriers who had passed through supposedly secure checkpoints that were equipped with useless ADE-651 bomb detectors, but the devices were surely to be history following the April fraud conviction of the British scam artist who made $75 million selling them. (American officials had warned Iraqis for years that the ADE-651 was basically a novelty golfball finder.) However, despite the debunking evidence brought out at trial, Iraqi police continue to use them, according to an October dispatch in Londons The Independent, with the September death toll at nearly 1,000 from bombers who passed through checkpoints, past silent ADE-651s. Even Prime Minister al-Maliki vouches that the ADE works up to 60 percent of the time.

LEAST COMPETENT CRIMINALS


Recurring Theme: Joshua Goverman, 29, was arrested in Glendale, Ariz., in October for allegedly stealing copper wiring from the back of an air-conditioner truck in a driveway. The thief apparently had trouble pulling on the wires, and police found a human finger at the scene. Despite Govermans excuse (that he cut his finger during a car repair), the crimescene fingers print matched Govermans other fingers prints.

Antones Sold and Leaving Riverside


As reported last week on the Chronicles daily Earache! stream, a team of out-of-town investors has purchased Austins legendary Home of the Blues. To be clear, what they bought was the brand, which is more significant than simple club ownership, since it gives them the ability to open branches in Las Vegas and Paris if desired, or even put an Antones shoeshine booth in every airport in America. As far as a new location for the venue, theres been no official confirmation that Antones will occupy the old Emos at 603 Red River, but many in the local industry and even some close to the business maintain its true, indicating a deals in the works but not done. Thats just people speculating, counters one of the new partners, Tayloe Emery. No decisions been made. With three years remaining on the 2015 E. Riverside buildings lease, the current owners are seeking a partner to take over the club equipment included as soon as Antones leaves after New Years Eve. Whats the value of the space? It housed short runs by the Beauty Ballroom and Antones since January of last year, but that hardly negates the rooms great BY N sound and 600-capacity interior with a balcony. The parking situation, while KEVI CU not perfect because it shares with Emos and the ever-so-delicious Taco RTIN More, remains better than Downtown. The building has also proved a valuable asset to festivals, having been successfully used in conjunction with Emos for Austin Psych Fest 2012 and last months Housecore Horror Fest.

Dale Watson Tapes Austin City Limits


The silver pompadoured, baritone beltin, Lone Star beer drinkin, honky-tonk hellraiser Dale Watson finally gets his own Austin City Limits taping on Monday. Shit, I grew up watching that show, the Austin country icon told Playback. Id see Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash play on TV when I was a kid in Pasadena, Texas. I always said I wanted to play the Grand Ole Opry and ACL. Watsons performed at the Opry many times, but this will be his first featured appearance on the local PBS concert staple. Ive been a fan since the first time I saw him, and hes always been on my Austin artist list for consideration, but for one reason or another never has made the cut, explained ACL Executive Producer Terry Lickona. One seminal moment that helped move him higher on the list was when I went to see Dale at the Broken Spoke after the new record came out, and Britt Daniel of all people came over to my

table and said, You really need to book Dale on your show! Everybody loves Dale. At 50, Watsons enjoying perhaps the biggest year of his already long career, latest album El Rancho Azul getting copious spins on SiriusXMs Outlaw Country channel, and guest spots opening up on David Letterman and at Willie Nelsons Fourth of July Picnic. Along with several partners, he also recently bought his favorite watering hole, Ginnys Little Longhorn. For the first time since the show moved Downtown, ACL will open the space in front of the stage for a dance floor. You cant have a Dale Watson show without dancers! confirmed Lickona. Watson will host his Lonestars plus Asleep at the Wheel fiddler Jason Roberts and pianist Earl Poole Ball. It will be real Austin, he declares. People all over the world are gonna get to see what goes on every night in the Texas honky-tonks.

Half Notes
Whenever an Austin act plays on the Late
Show with David Letterman, expect the host to bring up barbecue. Tell the people at the Salt Lick Id like some brisket! the gap-toothed comedian shouted at White Denim when they performed in October. When Black Joe Lewis appeared earlier this month, Letterman introd him with, You know what I got from Austin, Texas? Eighty pounds of brisket! Management at the Driftwood barbecue joint confirmed that every time Letterman mentions the Salt Lick, he and Paul Shaffer get sent a bundle of meat. last week to headline a show at Not Dead Yet fest. Screamer Jason Tarpey says we can look forward to a new Iron Age album in 2014, after which theyll likely disband.

Libbi Bosworth, one of Austins most talented country vocalists, whose career has suffered from medical issues with her vocal chords, made a desperate plea for help on Sunday. Launching a GoFundMe.com campaign with the heading, I am indigent. I am penniless. Scared, she outlined her situation with shocking honesty: seeing her home and possessions burn in a fire in March, losing her job, sending her two sons to live with her ex-husband, and being forced to move in with a friend. Her goal of $3,250 would be just enough to keep the wolves at bay. Its pretty darn hard telling the world youre flat broke, but I had run out of reasonable choices, Bosworth told the Chronicle. It was more important to me to ask for help than be too proud. Ill be 49 on Thanksgiving and plan to turn my life around. Twenty-four hours later, the fundraising had already netted $4,895, a testament to how deeply her fans and fellow musicians care for her. One $500 donation was signed, Your Continental Club Family. The donations that have come in to help me have comforted my soul, she gushed. Musicians and music lovers are special. Most live on a small incomes, often tips, yet theyre the first to lend a helping hand. Music is more than music. Its a common thread that holds us together and Im grateful to my core. Bosworth admits that her need is greater than the immediate goal she set. Anything over will help me avoid bankruptcy, keep my head on straight, and help others. Lets keep donations coming.

They Killed the President


Dallas soul man Bobby Patterson once counted Jack Ruby a patron
BY KEVIN CURTIN
On a sunny Friday afternoon in late November 1963, young soul singer Bobby Patterson hit a roadblock on his way to class at Arlington College. Everything was blocked off, remembers Patterson from the backstage of Austins Continental Club at a gig 50 years later. I was getting on the freeway and there were cops everywhere so I had to make a detour. I got on Jefferson and there were even more cop cars. He turned on the radio and heard the news: President Kennedy had been shot in downtown Dallas. Now how am I supposed to get to school, man? he asked himself. Patterson, now 69, has enjoyed an epic career in the music industry, cutting clever R&B favorites like TCB or TYA, How Do You Spell Love? and Quiet! Do Not Disturb before moving into studio production, record promotion, and ultimately radio, serving a long stint as a jive-talkin jock on Soul 73 KKDA in Dallas. In 1963, Patterson was enjoying his first regular gig at a nightclub called the Vegas Club, owned by Jack Ruby, who killed alleged JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. It was seven nights a week, remembers the singer. I played with a guy named Joe Johnson and his band. We did Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly all that rock & roll while the audience did the push, which was pretty much the same dance as the jitterbug. And Ruby? Jack? He was all right, man. Mafia guy, you know. Didnt take no shit. Those days, Ruby was spending most of his time at his other club, the Carousel, leaving his sister Eva Grant to manage Vegas, but he took notice of Patterson and offered to be his manager. He was a cool dude to me, says Patterson. Told me he was gonna get me a record deal and that Frank Sinatra was a friend of his. The day after sniper fire rained down on the presidential motorcade, Patterson remembers stopping by Rubys Oak Cliff apartment to pick up payment for playing at the Vegas Club. You know what I remember about that morning? All those newspapers, man. He had The Washington Post and The New York Times, all of the stories about the assassination, scattered all over the couch, all over the floor, and all in the kitchen, recalls Patterson. Jack said, How much I owe ya? And I said, $300. All he kept sayin was, They killed the president! They killed the president, man! Can you believe it? That son of a bitch is gonna pay! He was really pissed! Pattersons account of visiting Ruby the Saturday after JFKs assassination doesnt jibe with the eight-page transcript of his Warren Commission interview from March 1964. He was called in because Rubys ledger showed a payment to Robert Patterson and Friends. At the time, he indicated to investigators that his last meeting with Ruby had been in early November. Today, Patterson maintains he was with Ruby on Saturday, Nov. 23, and admits he was fearful of the agents questioning him in the Warren Commission interviews. He kept his answers short and didnt run his mouth on account of Rubys mob affiliations. Yeah, I was scared, he nods. It was 1964 and I was a young black man. They had a file on me that looked like a phone book, and two agents plus a stenographer that wrote down everything I said and did. Patterson says the interview mainly dealt with his and Rubys business relationship and what associates hed met. They drilled me, man asking me the same questions over and over seeing if Id give the same answer. Regardless of the date of their last meeting, the next time Patterson saw Ruby was on television firing a .38-caliber Colt Cobra revolver into Oswalds stomach as he was escorted from the Dallas Police Station.

figures his patron got close in because Dallas policemen frequented his clubs. I was shocked because he didnt have to do that himself, says Patterson, throwing his arms up in disbelief. He couldve had someone do it for him, but Id guess he wanted to do it so everyone would know how bold he was. He probably thought it would make him a hero. Bobby Patterson shakes his head and lowers his gaze, going back in time before snapping back to the present and smiling. Im just glad I got my $300 beforehand. n

Homer Hendersons assassin ode Lee Harvey Was a Friend of Mine stands alone in Lone Star lore. The sympathetic tune recounts a childhood friendship with the alleged JFK gunman: Lee Harvey was a friend of mine. He used to take me fishin all the time. He used to throw the ball to me when I was just a kid. They say he shot the president, but I dont think he did. The track first appeared on a 1985 vinyl 7-inch by Homer Henderson & the Dalworthington Garden Boys. The bandleader, then based in Dallas, co-wrote the tune with friend Jay Cotton. I think we wrote most of it while we were driving around drinking Slurpees and smoking weed, chuckles Henderson. Wed pass by Oswalds house, the Texas Theatre, and Marsalis Avenue in Oak Cliff, where Jack Ruby had lived. Thirty years ago people didnt give a damn about it, but we knew all those places. Though he considers the song something of a cheap shot, its stood the test of time, having been covered by T. Tex Edwards, the Asylum Street Spankers, Laura Cantrell, and even Oswalds old girlfriend, Judyth Vary Baker, author of the recent book Me & Lee: How I Came to Know, Love, and Lose Lee Harvey Oswald. Bakers atonal version alters the lyrics to support her claim that Oswald was a secret agent trying to prevent JFKs assassination. Henderson, 62, now mostly a one-man-band in Austin, returns to Dallas on Saturday to celebrate the release of Norton Records Tragic Songs From the Grassy Knoll, on which his anthem appears. Hell be at Top Ten Records, where Dallas policeman J.D. Tippit used the phone just minutes before he was gunned down by Oswald. In the evening, Henderson and Cramps drummer Miriam Linna lead an afterparty at a popular South Dallas bar called ... Lee Harveys. K.C.

Tragic Songs From the Grassy Knoll: John F. Kennedy 50th Anniversary Collection
(Norton)
Norton Records specializes in unearthing all manner of unsung American geniuses, cranks, and crackpots. Fitting, then, that the crafty Brooklyn label memorializes the half-century anniversary of John F. Kennedys assassination with these 16 obscure, country tribute tunes, most of them released on tiny regional labels in the wake of JFKs death. Its all fairly conventional, although that can hardly be said of such grandly unhinged efforts as Bill Kushners J.F.K. and That Terrible Day and Honorable Bob Peters A Sunny Day in Dallas, Pt. 1. Yet the cumulative effect of these uniformly sincere and heartfelt tunes is powerful, capturing the periods pervasive atmosphere of national shock and mourning. Ringers Hasil Adkins and Homer Henderson, whose Eighties anthem Lee Harvey Was A Friend of Mine closes the set, add some relative star power. While the absence of annotation or recording info is frustrating, Tragic Songs From the Grassy Knoll offers a genuinely moving listen, channeling a deep sense of loss thats all the more affecting for its often-awkward expression.

Arcade Fire Reflektor (Merge)

Promoted with a graffiti campaign, TV special, costumed secret shows, and enough advertising to blanket the Web, Arcade Fire sold the world on a defining album for our hyper-connected times, a pop-culture touchstone that draws a line in the sand between us and them. To quote Win Butler on the title track, It was just a reflector. The Montreal sextets double-disc fourth album sprawls an indulgent 85-minute opus that expands the bands scope in all directions at once. With co-producer James Murphy doing for New York what Brian Eno took from Berlin, Reflektor expands on the darker grooves of 2011s Album of the Year, The Suburbs, except with Caribbean rhythms. It works masterfully on the first disc, Vol. 1: the dub-noir of Flashbulb Eyes, thrilling Carnival rush of Here Comes the Night Time, and the transcendental disco of Reflektor, complete with a David Bowie cameo. Vol. 2 lacks the same clarity and continuity. As a whole, there are throwaway tracks (Porno) and overstayed welcomes (ambiguous anthem We Exist), Butler playing roulette with themes: the pains of indie rock (Normal Person), starcrossed Greek mythology (Awful Sound [Oh Eurydice], Its Never Over [Oh Orpheus]), and existential despair (Afterlife). Ultimately, Reflektors about everything and nothing, leaving the listener awkwardly dancing in the dark, together alone, with no promise of a better tomorrow. HHH Austin Powell

ed much of its adherents. Thus it seems utterly predictable that Mazzy Stars comeback album, Seasons of Your Day, finds the band sounding as fully formed as it did in the mid-Nineties. As always, they thrive in the quiet moments, Dave Roback returning in fine form on the sleepy, finger-picked Sparrow and wheelbarrow slide-guitar of Does Someone Have Your Baby Now? Centerpiece Common Burn stands as one of the prettiest pieces of music released all year. No analysis, no interpretation, nothing to feel uncomfortable about here, just beautiful desolation. Mazzy Star was always a band to hide away with, and nothings changed in 2013. HHHH n Luke Winkie

PHASES & STAGES


Songs, outshines everything else on Lightning Bolt, save perhaps his violin-kissed closer Future Days. While the backside wavers, the band has never sounded better or more selfassured, but its ambition suggests theyve outgrown simple song collections. Time for a concept epic. Time for Pearl Jams Quadrophenia. HHHH n Raoul Hernandez

Elvis Costello & the Roots


Wise Up Ghost and Other Songs (Blue Note)
Unexpected collaboration and stylistic reversal have become hallmarks for Elvis Costello, but none reaches as far afield as teaming with the Roots. While his early throwbacks to classic R&B thread the obvious connection, the Roots traffic in more funked-up rhythms, unloaded at the outset with the scratched groove of Walk Us Uptown. They also push beyond the singers vocal range, his gritty croon crackling in contrast to the bands tight rhythms. Retreading Costellos deep cuts exposes the contrast even more on the low broil of Wake Me Up rehashing Bedlam, dark funk of Stick Out Your Tongue mashing Pills & Soap and Hurry Down Doomsday, and the waltzing R&B of Tripwire playing against Satellite. Unfortunately, (She Might Be a) Grenade reworking Shes Pulling Out the Pin stands as the only revision that works once the novelty has worn off. Wise Up Ghost, more compelling in theory than practice. HH Doug Freeman

Elton John

The Diving Board (Capitol/Mercury)

Paul McCartney
New (Hear Music)
Just call them Sir. While one, Sir Elton John, 66, reclaims the piano-centric simplicity of his earliest works on 31st LP The Diving Board, the other, Sir Paul McCartney, 71, rockets forward into the robotic New millennium. Both approaches are problematic. Hitting reset in 2010 with Leon Russell collaboration The Union, the former author of more than 50 Top 40 hits eschews formulaic pop for the stripped barroom noir of Oscar Wilde Gets Out and church hymn A Town Named Jubilee. All too soon, though, My Quicksand, which would be a perfect Rufus Wainwright vehicle, sinks overwrought while drawing the discs Maginot Line. Only the Eighties-esque Cant Stay Alone Tonight rallies after that. Macca, meanwhile, delivers his most raucous disc since 1999s Run Devil Run. Save Us could be a Strokes twister, while its LP bookend, closer Road, summons no less than Blue yster Cult. In between, the modern clamor obfuscates the pure melody of Queenie Eye, though both the title track and Alligator define Beatlesque. Everybody Out There even evokes George Harrisons All Those Years Ago. McCartney die-hards might have to wait for the Let It Be ... Naked version of New. (Elton John) HH (Paul McCartney) HHH Raoul Hernandez

The Bones of What You Believe (Glassnote)


Lauren Mayberrys spitfire loud and tired of your shit. You better run from me, with everything you own, cause Im gonna come for you, with all that I have, she yips on Gun. The Scottish trio arent trying to subvert anything on debut longplayer The Bones of What You Believe, churning out hard-driving and utterly undeniable electro-pop, and the hooks arrive absolutely relentless. Gorgeous, cascading synths (We Sink), nerve-tingling twinkles (Recover), and a future Billboard hotshot (The Mother We Share): Bones rattles diva house, emopop, and brain-slicing techno all joined in holy matrimony, with the key mechanic being Mayberrys razor-sharp lyrical voice. Im in misery where you can seem as old as your omens, and the mother we share will never keep your proud head from falling, she sings in a Gaelic lilt. Shes the reason her band promises staying power. (Chvrches play a sold-out show at Stubbs Friday, Nov. 22.) HHHH Luke Winkie

Superchunk Sebadoh
Defend Yourself (Joyful Noise)

I Hate Music (Merge)

Pearl Jam

Lightning Bolt (Monkeywrench/ Republic)


Has Eddie Vedder outgrown Pearl Jam? Primary composer of the Seattle quintets previous LP, 2009 ramrod Backspacer, the frontman wrote half of 10th studio album Lightning Bolt, and its the better half. Both the singers pummeling opener Getaway and the title strike recall the 23-year-old groups raw sophomore disc, Vs., the band having grown more Dischord-ant in middle age. And yet, its the balladic side (Sirens, the echoing Pendulum) that stands out in this storm. Sleeping by Myself, whose four-string accompaniment first appeared on Vedders career high 2011 solo disc, Ukulele

Is this what The Big Chill sounds like for Gen Xs college radio subset? Despite a title that reads like perfunctory cynicism, Superchunks 10th studio LP delivers a perfect strike at the heart of mature-stage alienation. Against the backdrop of a virulent fuzz-pop riff, Mac McCaughan kicks off Me & You & Jackie Mittoo by singing, I hate music/What is it worth/Cant bring anyone back to this Earth. With Ray Davies precision, he sums up these melancholy times as assuredly as a besotted pub sage. Same with Staying Home, a hardcore-infused broadside against going out, clocking in at just over a minute. From the befuddled realization that springing back from a bender isnt eternal (Out of the Sun) to uneasy resignation of loss (What Can We Do), I Hate Music feels instantly familiar and compelling. Only the formers true of Sebadohs Defend Yourself. Grounded in the fertile terrain of terminal relationships, the warm, unadorned album comes undone by undercooked songwriting. Oxygen is a spry pop driver recalling the Smiths, while shambling post-punk rave-up Inquiries also arrives moderately intriguing. Compared to Lou Barlows previous work, however, little here rises above the level of afterthought. (Superchunk) HHHH n (Sebadoh) HH Greg Beets

Eminem

The Marshall Mathers LP 2 (Aftermath)


Forgive the dated references and remember Eminem hasnt represented public conscience this millennium. You listen because he burns, because he can afford production from Rick Rubin that reinvents Billy Squier (Berzerk), and because he rhymes nine words with attackable in 30 seconds, midway through a song called Asshole. Now 41 and onto his eighth disc the sequel to an album released in 2000 Eminems only preoccupied with torching tracks like a one-man slaughterhouse. That he can rhyme more with a dated reference such as Monica Lewinsky affects neither his approach nor his ability to top Billboard, as happened yet again this month. That works only if you can get past 78 minutes of (potentially fictionalized) misogyny, homophobia, and allusions to killing or abandoning his family, not to mention lame ducks Headlights, Stronger Than I Was, and the Rihannafronted Monster, which youll hate by 2014. HH Chase Hoffberger

Mazzy Star

Seasons of Your Day (Rhymes of an Hour)


Mazzy Stars reunion hasnt exactly prompted parades. Hope Sandoval kept the nocturnal reverb for her Warm Inventions band, and despite the ubiquity of her former acts Fade Into You, the Santa Monica group broke up at juncture of wider appeal. Moving dolefully between chiming psychedelia and anesthetizing folk never demand-

The St. Edwards women extended their season into the NCAA Sweet 16 with a 1-0 overtime win Sunday at Fort Lewis in Durango, Colo. They now travel to Western Washington to take on Metro State (14-4-3), with whom they tied, 1-1, back in September one of the blemishes on their 18-0-2 season. The Hilltoppers are riding a 16-game winning streak, and have outscored opponents by an eye-popping 60-5 on the year. Orlando City SC was confirmed Tuesday as the MLS 21st team, to start playing in 2015 just four years after they moved away from Austin. The field is now complete for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, June 12-July 13, with some dramatic results in Europe Tuesday: Three goals by Portugals Cristiano Ronaldo beat two by Swedens Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and France shut out Ukraine, 3-0, reversing an 0-2 first leg. The WC draw will be held Dec. 6. The U.S. men finished their 2013 season with a mild whimper in Europe: a 1-0 loss to Austria, following a 0-0 draw with Scotland. Disappointed, despite their best-ever 16-4-3 record for the year? Take it up with head coach Jurgen Klinsmann while hes here for SXSW in March, speaking in the new SXsports Convergence track.

A week after an overtime win at West Virginia thrust them into the Top 25 for the first time since early September, the Longhorns were bounced from the national rankings after being whupped at home by No. 10 Oklahoma State. Texas (7-3, 6-1 in the Big 12) crumbled with conference supremacy at stake and ended up losing more than just a solitary football game to its first quality opponent faced since Oklahoma in October. OSUs 38-13 butchering gave Texas its first loss since September 14 a humiliating one that represents Mack Browns worst home defeat in 16 seasons as UTs head coach. The six-game winning streak that catapulted the Longhorns into a first-place tie with No. 3 Baylor atop the Big 12 is now kaput, as is their undefeated record in conference play and the inside track to their first conference championship and BCS bowl berth since 2009. The only thing Texas didnt lose last week was another set of healthy players. Regardless of the way in which injuries have decimated this squad, only Saturdays reality check could revive the recently dormant debate about whether Brown should be treated as a sacred cow or a lame duck. Unfortunately for him, countering catcalls with Scoreboard! is no longer at the coachs disposal. Greg Robinsons defense faltered for the second consecutive week, proving porous

against OSU and its unstoppable quarterback draw the same design that haunted Texas in its early losses. Meanwhile, Case McCoy has thrown more interceptions than touchdowns this month (6-3); his first of three against Oklahoma State a fatal picksix to end the second half. Joe Bergeron, injured tailback Johnathan Grays replacement in the backfield, cant shake his bout of fumblitis. He put another ball on the ground last week. Texas season now stands in jeopardy of settling upon an inglorious ending unless it can roast Texas Tech at home on Thanksgiving and beat Baylor the week after. Heres thinking the former may prove more possible than the latter: Although ranking fourth in the nation in total offense, the Red Raiders have recently revealed themselves as pretenders in the wake of a 7-0 start, going 0-4 since, with shootout losses to Kansas State and conference titans Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Baylor. The Cowboys shone the black light on Texas and exposed a mess. Though still in contention for the conference championship, the Longhorns need help and suddenly look like theyre running on empty. Waco awaits at the end of the line. Could it possibly be Macks last stand?

The Johnny Cash Museum in Nashville, Tenn., walks the line around a ring of fire surrounding the Man in Black. A half-block off Nashvilles famous Broadway strip of legendary honky-tonks, the museum is rather small considering it covers Cashs 48-year music career. But the red brick building packs a lot into a small space, tracing the highs and lows of his life from the backwoods of Arkansas to legendary status on the stages of the world. Over the years, Cash had 134 singles on the Billboard charts, spanning 38 consecutive years. His 98 studio albums sold in excess of 100 million copies, not including albums released after his death in 2003. In addition to playing music, Cash had a television variety show and dabbled in movies. His career comes alive here through concert videos and film clips.

GERALD E. MCLEOD

The wonderful thing about a museum like this is that it illustrates the many facets of the artist. Opened on April 26, 2013, with the blessing of the Cash family, this museum will appeal to the die-hard fans as well as the casual observer. Everyone who walks through the doors will come away learning something new about a man named Johnny Cash. The Johnny Cash Museum is at 119 Third Avenue in downtown Nashville. Its open from 11am-7pm daily except major holidays. For information, go to www.johnnycashmuseum.com or call 615/736-9909.

LISTINGS

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

D: Francis Lawrence; with Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Sam Clain, Jeffrey Wright, Jena Malone, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Liam Hemsworth, Donald Sutherland, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Lynn Cohen, Stanley Tucci, Amanda Plummer, Toby Jones. (PG-13, 146 min.)

Hunger is a powerful motivating force, one made palpable in the first film adaptation of Suzanne
the heart about her dead friend Rue, inciting Collins bestselling, alternate-history, younga riot. The accidental firestarter wails like adult book series about a nation of havean innocent anew: What did I do? Lesson nots under the boot of a fascistic ruler. The learned the game may have desperate drive to survive is a dampened flame in the sequel, RECOMMENDED changed, but shes still a pawn. Then again, second verse, and that makes sense. This is same as the first: Catching no longer the story of an innoFire inevitably must wend its cent forced into a nationallyAlamo Ritz, Alamo Lakeline, way back to the Hunger Games televised battle to the death; Alamo Slaughter Lane, arena.

ing disorientation of the first film and its didactic pleasure in detailing the survivalists process. But Lawrence improves on the first films chintzy, rather benign idea of the bacchanalia that is Panems capital city (no atrocious green screens here). Lawrence nails the grotesquerie and arm-hair-pricking menace but good, with costume and set design strengthening the case, for a far more psychologically toothsome experience. Turns out that poisonous fog pales in comparison to the ongoing terrors of PTSD, universally suffered by Katniss and all the other Hunger Games combatants. To say that Jennifer Lawrence is a star as infinitely watchable picking her nose as picking off enemies with a bow and arrow (spoiler: She doesnt actually pick her nose)

is to invite one long durrrrr in reply, and its no surprise how nimbly she moves between warrior stance and emotional collapse. But the film doesnt always do right by her. There are certain shot choices that should have been left on the cutting-room floor, a clumsy final frame heavy with sequel portent, and shes still stuck in a dead-limb love triangle with Hutcherson and Hemsworth (the male co-leads are the series only, everlasting casting miscues). Im not sure it matters in the end. The Hunger Games franchise, both in print and onscreen, has been exceptionally clever about cozying away imaginative space for fans to fill in the blanks and cast themselves in the rich drama. That this latest film leaves us hungering for more only means that its working.

Opens Wednesday. Marjorie Baumgarten Alamo Lakeline, Alamo Slaughter Lane

THE CHRISTMAS CANDLE

D: John Stephenson; with Hans Matheson, Samantha Barks, Lesley Manville, John Hannah, Susan Boyle, Sylvester McCoy, James Cosmo. (PG, 100 min.) The Christmas Candle is not only as picturesque and beautiful as a holiday card but also just as two-dimensionally flat. In a small, English countryside village, there is a

recurring holiday miracle every 25 years in which a single candle produced in the local candlemakers shop is blessed by an angel. Whoever gets this legendary candle will have their wish granted after lighting it. The film is set in 1890 as a new minister, David Richmond (Matheson), arrives in the village. His own faith conflicted, Richmond has little use for the towns thrilled expectation of the candle, thinking miracles come more from how people treat and help each other. In this he is aided by a beautiful local skeptic and champion of change, Emily Barstow (Barks). Based on bestselling author Max Lucados novel, the film tackles questions of faith and belief, as well as the conflict between tradition and modern innovation, both in religion and life. There is also a timely subplot about the ministers disastrous attempt to switch the church from candle illumination to electric light bulbs. A confused mishmash of testaments to the importance of good acts and neighborly actions vs. the power of blind spiritual faith, The Christmas Candle comes out in favor of them all. Not surprisingly, unfolding events inspire both the minister and Barstow, and restore their faith. Wellmade and quite beautiful, the film features a strong cast though Susan Boyle, a lovely singer, is not much of an actress.

The film is a release by former Sen. Rick Santorums EchoLight Studios. When the film was introduced before the screening, the speaker noted that Santorum had left the Senate to produce films like this although as I recall, his departure was due to having been soundly defeated in his run for re-election. It would be misleading to pretend anything but that I am more cynic than believer, but even if I resist the obvious string-tugging of a classic holiday-based tale, I love being cinematically swept along. This film just doesnt do it. Although at times it seems to be building emotional momentum, by the end it falls flat tripped by its conflicting ambitions, overload of metaphoric events, and lack of powerful catharsis.

DELIVERY MAN

72

D: Ken Scott; with Vince Vaughn, Chris Pratt, Cobie Smulders, Andrzej Blumenfeld, Simon Delaney, Bobby Moynihan, Dave Patten, Adam Chanler-Berat, Britt Robertson, Sbastien Ren. (PG-13, 105 min.) Its possible to look past the colorlessness of this new comedy, as well as the fact that its an almost shot-for-shot remake of 2011s Quebecois hit Starbuck, the director of which, Ken Scott, has been imported to Hollywood so Americans can watch his remade movie sans subtitles and with the substitution of popular

Canadian performer Patrick Huard for American swinger Vince Vaughn. But even noting the toned-down performance of Vaughn and the films overall amiability, there are some creepy and unexplored issues lurking in the margins of this story that cant be brushed away. David Wozniak (Vaughn, whose usual fasttalking demeanor is here slowed to a schlubby crawl) is a notorious, fortysomething underachiever, whose job responsibilities as the delivery driver for his familys meat business even prove burdensome. With more parking citations to his name than dollars, David is also in debt to loan sharks to the tune of $80,000. His girlfriend Emma (Smulders) is pregnant but she isnt sure she wants to accept Davids promise to change his ways and accept the rigors of parenthood. Davids disorderly life becomes more of a shambles as the news arrives that he is the father of 533 children due to his frequent sperm donations to an administratively compromised fertility clinic 20 years earlier. Now 142 of those offspring have filed a class-action suit to discover their paternity, which has been protected all those years by Davids nondisclosure agreements as the anonymous donor named Starbuck. (The story derives from a actual incident in Canada, where the pseudonym connotes not the ubiquitous coffee chain but a famously fertile bull.)

FILM LISTINGS

Starbuck quickly becomes the countrys laughing stock, mocked in nightly monologues from Jay Leno to Bill Maher. When handed a packet of the litigants profiles with orders from his attorney and best friend Brett (Parks and Recreations Chris Pratt) to keep it sealed, David, of course, opens the Pandoras box. One by one, David begins tracking down his kids and helps each one as an anonymous guardian angel might, but the line between this activity and stalking is mighty thin. Each involvement is sillier than the last, yet this fatherhood grinchs heart grows larger with each rescue. Curiously, there are no mothers present to help out their beautiful-but-troubled kids. Delivery Man is a wide-open paean to parenthood a nonjudgmental state that accepts children of every race, sexual orientation, and disability. David conveniently gets to skip past the years of dirty diapers and teenage hijinks to enjoy the more gratifying years of choosing careers and forging adult identities. And despite ones best intentions, how can a person be a present parent to 533 chldren, or even 142? Just like the original film, this one ends with a gigantic group hug only this one has the former slickster Vince Vaughn, now barrel-chested man-boy, at its center. The film lacks any undercurrent of believability. But I guess thats not surprising in a film that casts Vaughn and SNLs Bobby Moynihan complete physical opposites as brothers.

into clandestine meetings. Diana smuggling Khan into her palace and disguising herself to go out with him is romantic and humorous. Soon enough, however, the film becomes overly coy and almost shockingly myopic as it concentrates on this romance. Boasting a large budget, with scenes set all around the world detailing Dianas travels, charities, and causes, the film is still really telling a very small story. Yes, Diana is the poor little rich girl, but the opulent settings, private jets, yachts, and chauffeured cars prove peculiar and distracting affectations. Despite the cluttered, overlong film, Watts does an admirable job carrying the film, even though she is done in by the flatness of her character. Andrews smolders while experiencing pressure from all sides despite his professed great love and smoking endless numbers of cigarettes. Ultimately, it is as though this is a Disney film The Princess and the Doctor not a real life biopic. HH Louis Black n Arbor

DIANA

GORI TERE PYAAR MEIN

D: Oliver Hirschbiegel; with Naomi Watts, Naveen Andrews, Douglas Hodge, Charles Edwards, Daniel Pirrie, Cas Anvar. (PG-13, 113 min.) This film continues and actually accelerates the simplification and beatification of Diana, Princess of Wales (Watts), if that is still possible. This is the story of Dianas great secret love affair with Dr. Hasnat Khan (Andrews) who came after Charles and before Dodi Fayed (Anvar), portrayed here as mostly a partner of convenience. Khan is a Pakistani heart surgeon who is in training at a British hospital when Diana falls for him at first sight. The early part of the film, as they establish their relationship, is charming and actually sweet. Chance meetings lead to flirtatious glances, which eventually evolve

D: John Krokidas; with Daniel Radcliffe, Dane DeHaan, Michael C. Hall, Jack Huston, Ben Foster, David Cross, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Elizabeth Olsen, John Cullum. (R, 104 min.) First thought, best thought, is the maxim a young, aspiring poet by the name of Allen Ginsberg bandies about throughout this sweet and sour biopic about the collegiate years of the best and the Beatest. This may not be the first film about the Beats, but its certainly one of the best-acted and least mournful. It captures the fizzy frisson of the new, before it became socking; Its a gas, a hoot, and a tragedy all in one. As played by former boy-wizard Radcliffe, Ginsberg is a naif on the edge of a knife, the closeted shy boy from Jersey who, once accepted into the churning, hedonistic whirligig of Columbia University in the mid-Forties, falls in with a raw lot of mad, bad, and potentially dangerous-to-know types and emerges from the experience howling. That he finds camaraderie and love amongst the likes of David Kammerer (Hall), William S. Burroughs (Foster, whose uncanny impersonation of the famed deranger of the senses merits either a Best Supporting Oscar nomination or a gap year spent on a quiet beach somewhere), a peripatetic Jack Kerouac (Huston), and maddest of all, Lucien Carr (DeHaan) an angelic blonde with more than a streak of the devil in him forestalls any notion of a normal university run. Rough trade, indeed. The films title is a hoary literary maxim itself, referring to the often painful editorial process. In the context of the storyline (co-scripted by director Krokidas and Austin Bunn), its all too apt for these increasingly dilated pupils. Krokidas swerves all over the place fittingly, given his subjects but resists the temptation to dive full-on into Burroughs then-nascent notion by way of Brion Gysin of the cut-up technique (much, one assumes, to film editor Brian A. Kates relief). Theres even a terrifically farcical sequence in which Carr and company break into Columbias hallowed library under cover of nightfall and restock its library with copies of Lady Chatterleys Lover and Henry Millers Tropic of Cancer (booting out the Gutenberg Bible in the process). Its like some Twilight Zone riff on National Lampoons Animal House. The cast is uniformly excellent. Huston catches a pre-On the Road Kerouac acting appropriately Kerouacian, while an almost unrecognizable Jennifer Jason Leigh and what could

only be a David Cross cameo, adroitly, are the mentally unbalanced Ma and Pa Ginsberg. Kill Your Darlings is a love story more than it is a history lesson, albeit one that declaims the likes of Baudelaire, Rimbaud, and Whitman over rose-tinted sentimentalists like, say, E.E. Cummings and Hallmark. The films love for its subjects is mirrored in their passionate frenzy for words, and language spoken, written, body in general. Above all, and what sets it apart from other cinematic takes on the Beatified, is how much fun it is. It may end in tears, but then, dont all great love stories?

FILM LISTINGS

OLDBOY

D: Spike Lee; with Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel L. Jackson, Sharlto Copley, Michael Imperioli. (R, 104 min.) Not reviewed at press time. Based on the manga and Park Chan-wooks indelible 2003 film, this horrifying thriller tells the story of a man driven only by revenge against the unknown person who held him inexplicably captive for 20 years, and then just as inexplicably set him free. What will this become in Spike Lees hands? Opens Wednesday. Marjorie Baumgarten Tinseltown North, Tinseltown South

The Unspeakable Act


D: Dan Sallitt; with Tallie Medel, Sky Hirschkron. (2013, NR, 91 min.) Austin Film Society: Best of the Fests. A 17-year-old girls incestuous feelings for her older brother are not reciprocated, and his departure for college causes the girl to re-evaluate her situation. Director Dan Sallitt will be in attendance for a Q&A. @Austin Studios Screening Room, Friday, 8pm.

Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea. Although Phillips played by Tom Hanks in a commanding, Oscar-courting turn remains the heart of the films story, director Paul Greengrass never loses sight of all the events participants as cogs in a greater social machinery. With Captain Phillips we get a viable, multidimensional thriller whose conclusion is already known, and a character who reacts to circumstances rather than a personal, heroic code. And now, its a story preserved in brine. (10/11/2013) HHHH Marjorie Baumgarten Alamo Lakeline, Hill Country Galleria, CM Round Rock, Gateway, Moviehouse, Tinseltown South

Streetwise
D: Martin Bell. (1984, NR, 91 min.) Invincible: Five Tough Films. This gritty, groundbreaking documentary observes the lives of runaway and castaway teenagers who live on the streets of Seattle.

FIRST RUNS

J ABOUT TIME

D: Richard Curtis; with Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams, Bill Nighy, Lydia Wilson, Lindsay Duncan, Tom Hollander, Richard Cordery. (R, 123 min.) Yes, this is a romantic dramedy about a man who can travel back in time to do over what he bungled on the first try, but the high concept belies more earthbound concerns: how hard it can be to live in the moment, how heartbreaking it can be to admit powerlessness to fix fate. Kind but unsure, stammering Tim (Gleeson) is turning 21 when his father (Nighy) informs him of their peculiar ability to move backward but never forward in time. Curtiss film moves episodically, leisurely, through roughly a decade, and that feels like a gift: to nestle in with these extraordinary, ordinary people and get to know them. About Time, so full of compassion and care, is something different a kind of benevolence which made me want to fall in love, hug a small child, call my parents, and take back the half-dozen thoughtless things Id said that day. (11/01/2013) HHHH Kimberley Jones Alamo Lakeline, Arbor, Barton Creek Square, Hill Country Galleria, iPic, Moviehouse, Tinseltown North

D: Malcolm D. Lee; with Monica Calhoun, Morris Chestnut, Melissa De Sousa, Taye Diggs, Regina Hall, Terrence Howard, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long, Harold Perrineau, Eddie Cibrian. (R, 122 min.) Welcome to middle age, friends. This sequel to 1999s twentysomethings comedy The Best Man in which a guy turns the secret of a one-night stand with his best friends girl into the barely fictionalized fodder for his first novel (spoiler: It all works out in the end) is all thumpingly on-the-nose. But writer/director Malcolm D. Lee is admirably candid about what a big fat lie that 14-year-old spoiler is: It didnt actually all work out in the end. Everybody got older. Friends drifted apart. Fifteen years later, Lance (Chestnut) and wife Mia (Calhoun), who survived the revelation of Mias lapse in fidelity, have invited all their old college pals to stay for Christmas. High spirits mark the first half of the film. Then, a well-telegraphed plot turn steers us into nose-honking, sleeve-sogging weepie country, and it is marvelous. And even, yes, a little sexy. Take that, middle age.

D: Kimberly Peirce; with Chlo Grace Moretz, Julianne Moore, Judy Greer, Alex Russell, Gabriella Wilde, Portia Doubleday, Ansel Elgort, Barry Shabaka Henley. (R, 92 min.) Theres still no sin like original sin, and whether its Stephen Kings source novel, Brian De Palmas 1976 classic, or Kimberley Peirces modern-day update, Carrie remains one master manipulator. And Im not just talking telekinesis here Carrie moves us with its horrifically poignant takes on the teenage pecking order, religious zealotry, and the onset of menstruation. Peirces version opens differently with the bloody birth of Carrie (Moretz) to her mother Margaret White (Moore), a religious fanatic who accepts the baby as Gods curse. Taking on the disturbing mother-daughter dynamic which Piper Laurie and Sissy Spacek made iconic in the 1976 version, Julianne Moore and Chlo Grace Moretz perform their own dance quite stunningly. Yet nothing can really top the split-screen tour de force of De Palmas promscene finale. Carrie has proven itself to be a remarkably resilient tale thats not likely to be plugged up anytime soon. (10/25/2013) HHH Marjorie Baumgarten Metropolitan D: Jean-Marc Valle; with Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner, Jared Leto, Denis OHare, Dallas Roberts, Steve Zahn, Griffin Dunne. (R, 117 min.) Matthew McConaugheys career resurrection is in full bloom in the true-to-life Dallas Buyers Club. Electrician/rodeo rat/Texas good ol boy Ron Woodroof (McConaughey) a card-playing, substanceabusing, sexist, and homophobic jerk is, at the outset in 1985, far from an appealing character. After doctors (Garner and OHare) tell him that he is HIVpositive and has only a month to live, Woodroof finds his way to Mexico, where an unlicensed American doctor (Dunne) fortifies him with a cocktail of vitamins and drugs. Soon he is smuggling the Mexican drugs across the border and seizes on the idea of a buyers club to redistribute the drugs to other Texans in need. Thus begins Woodroofs transformation from goner to survivor, and from homophobe to roughedged humanist. Dallas Buyers Club is an indelible story about one mans unwillingness to go gently into that good night, and the personal growth he experiences along the way.

(R, 90 min.) Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as the titular character in his debut film as a writer/director. Like the character he plays, Gordon-Levitts movie brims with a self-assurance that outstrips its actual worthiness. Jon (Gordon-Levitt) is an Italian-Catholic gym rat from New Jersey who prefers online pornography to sex with women. When Jon suddenly falls hard for Jersey girl Barbara (Johannson), there seems to be a chance that real life might supersede his online fantasies. But, alas, their future together is scuttled when Barbara sees the browser history on his laptop. Later on, Jon becomes involved with Esther (Moore), an older woman from whom he learns a little something about empathy. With its vividly drawn albeit largely one-dimensional character portraits, Don Jon makes the same points time and again, with no elaboration. Its little wonder that Jon cant break his habit. Even real life needs a money shot once in a while. (09/27/2013) HHH Marjorie Baumgarten n Tinseltown South

ENDERS GAME

J DALLAS BUYERS CLUB

J BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR

ALL IS LOST

D: J.C. Chandor; with Robert Redford. (PG-13, 106 min.) This is the Virginia Jean with an SOS call. Over. That right there is very near the totality of dialogue in this brutalizing picture of one man lost at sea. Written and directed by J.C. Chandor (Margin Call), All Is Lost begins with a man (Redford) Our Man, as hes billed in the credits waking to discover that a mislaid cargo container in the Indian Ocean has ripped a hole in the hull of his boat. All is not lost: Our Man is clever and resourceful, and the film is fascinating in the meticulousness with which it catalogs his every movement to ballast the listing ship. As indicated by the title, a lot goes wrong for Our Man, and at a certain point, the pile-on of calamities is almost comical, even as it is ruthlessly realistic. This is compulsively watchable stuff, a masterstroke of thoughtful direction and thought-provoking performance. (11/08/2013) HHHH Kimberley Jones Arbor

D: Abdellatif Kechiche; with Adle Exarchopoulos, La Seydoux, Salim Kechiouche, Sandor Funtek, Mona Walravens, Benjamin Siksou, Jrmie Laheurte. (NC-17, 179 min., subtitled) Alert, inquisitive 17-year-old Adle (Exarchopoulos) hungers for fireworks, fatedness, the coup de foudre of the great literature she adores. She stumbles into just that, in a glancing encounter with Emma (Seydoux), a blue-haired art student in her 20s. Soon enough, theyre inseparable, and in love. And, yes, as people in love are wont to do, Adle and Emma bang like theres no tomorrow. The explicit, marathon sex has been the subject of much controversy and titillation since the film took the Palme dOr prize at Cannes in May. (Google the backstory, if youve got a few hours to spare.) Director Abdellatif Kechiche, letting the camera linger on mundanities that subtly reveal character and conflict, doesnt need to spell anything out not when Exarchopoulos face is an open book. Theres no understating her titanic, lavishly textured performance. Blue Is the Warmest Color has its wobbles, but Exarchopoulos will knock you sideways. (11/01/2013) HHH Kimberley Jones Arbor

D: Gavin Hood; with Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfield, Ben Kingsley, Abigail Breslin, Viola Davis, Aramis Knight, Suraj Partha, Moises Arias, Nonso Anozie. (PG-13, 114 min.) Orson Scott Cards supposedly unfilmable 1985 sci-fi novel Enders Game has finally arrived, with most of its themes intact but much of its story missing in action. The good news? It very nearly works. In the late 21st century, after a catastrophic attack on planet Earth by insectile aliens called Formics (or Buggers), the newly allied remnants of humanity have constructed a massive, orbiting battle school to house and train the next generation of mankinds laser-blasting saviors. The kick? Theyre just kids. Among them is Andrew Ender Wiggins (Butterfield, earnest and excellent), who, under the tutelage of Colonel Graff (Ford), hones his already genius-level tactical skills and is slowly revealed to be the best of the best. Hoods realization of Cards novel is a tightly constructed, thought-provoking meditation on adolescence trapped by permanent war footing. Its not Cards Game anymore, but it is about as close as well ever get.

DON JON

J CAPTAIN PHILLIPS

D: Paul Greengrass; with Tom Hanks, Barkhad Abdi, Barkhad Abdirahman, Faysal Ahmed, Mahat M. Ali, Michael Chernus, Catherine Keener. (PG-13, 134 min.) A kinetic showcase that whizzes by yet never loses track of its disparate elements, Captain Phillips ventures out to high seas and takes the audience along for a tense, claustrophobic ride. Based on true events from 2009 in which the U.S.-flagged cargo ship Maersk Alabama was captured for ransom by Somali pirates, the film also draws from Captain Richard Phillips book on the experience, A Captains

D: Nicole Holofcener; with Julia Louis-Dreyfus, James Gandolfini, Catherine Keener, Toni Collette, Ben Falcone. (PG-13, 93 min.) A consistently independent-minded filmmaker, Nicole Holofcener (Lovely & Amazing) is the last person youd expect to get Hollywood-tricksy with plot, but there it is a twist as contrived as the title is generic. That twist, and its implications, almost derail the movies true achievement: Its a funny, tender, impactful story of two divorces struggling to trust and love again. Single parents Eva (LouisDreyfus) and Albert (Gandolfini, in one of his last roles) meet at a party and find common ground with their mutually looming empty nests. But the delicate, uncommon picture of new, middle-aged love begins to deteriorate after the aforementioned plot twist. Its not a catastrophe, because Holofcener is very good at what she does and the cast is so watchable but its hell watching something so deeply winning take a wrong turn and keep bumping its head, trying to find the way out of a dead end.

FILM LISTINGS

FREE BIRDS

D: Jimmy Hayward; with the voices of Woody Harrelson, Owen Wilson, Dan Folger, Amy Poehler, George Takei, Colm Meaney. (PG, 90 min.) The very best animated films operate on any number of levels, appealing to the broadest of audiences, usually working in different ways for different age groups. Free Birds definitely entertained the many children at the screening I attended. Adults were a very different story. Reggie (Wilson), a turkey that just doesnt fit in, is selected by the U.S. president to be liberated because the first daughter falls for him. He ends up in the White House where he is grabbed by Jake (Harrelson), a member of the Turkey Liberation Front. Together, they travel back in time to the first Thanksgiving celebration via a secret government time machine. There they will remove turkey from the menu (even though, historically, turkey was not on that first menu), thereby liberating millions of birds over the centuries from the annual holiday slaughter. Free Birds falls flat, despite its good intentions, ideological cuteness, humorous polish, and skillful computer animation.

Gilda
D: Charles Vidor; with Rita Hayworth, Glenn Ford, George Macready. (1946, NR, 110 min.) Tough Ladies in Cinema. There is no sexier creature than Rita Hayworth in Gilda. The film tells a sick and twisted tale of love and money south of the border dangerous games played out by sadists and masochists, extroverted women and inverted men. If the machinations become too much, just Put the Blame on Mame; civilizations are prone to crumble in the face of Hayworths performance of this song. (*) @Alamo Ritz, Wednesday, 7:15pm.

D: Jon Turteltaub; with Kevin Kline, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, Mary Steenburgen, Jerry Ferrara, Romany Malco, Roger Bart. (PG-13, 105 min.) Though apparently aspiring to be The Hangover for the Social Security set, Last Vegas exhibits fewer nutso antics and more concentration on character dynamics than that film. Four sixtysomething pals reunite for a weekend in Vegas after Billy (Douglas), the last remaining bachelor in their clan, pops the question to his girlfriend. His confederates include Archie (Freeman), who has been confined at home after suffering a stroke; Sam (Kline), who has grown bored of his early Florida retirement; and Paddy (De Niro), who has to be coaxed into the trip because he is still mad at Billy for not attending his wifes funeral. Its delightful to see these acting pros hamming it up they look as though theyre having a blast. But the same cant be said for the audience. Last Vegas is formulaic and predictable as they come, mindless fluff lent some extra weight by these acting powerhouses.

LAST VEGAS

Two Years at Sea


D: Ben Rivers. (2011, NR, 92 min.) Mad Stork Cinema. In this experimental, black-and-white documentary, the filmmaker records the routines of daily life undergone by Jake Williams, a recluse living self-sufficiently in a Scottish forest. Enigmatic and near-wordless, this awardwinning film is an extension of a short film previously made by the filmmaker. @Texas Union Theatre, Friday, 8pm; free.

J GRAVITY

D: Alfonso Cuarn; with Sandra Bullock, George Clooney; with the voice of Ed Harris. (PG-13, 91 min.) In space, no one can hear you. Certainly not after a Russian satellite explodes and a mile-wide debris field pulverizes your space shuttle and scythes through your tether, severing all communication between you and what Carl Sagan called our pale blue dot. Thats the dire situation that faces a pair of astronauts assigned to repair the Hubble Space Telescope, 600 kilometers up. Clooney is Matt Kowalski, the grizzled space veteran on his final mission and Bullock is Dr. Ryan Stone, on her first. As an example of one of the most rarefied genres of filmmaking the two-character action-drama Gravity stands above and apart from everything thats come before. This is a film spectacular enough to demand the full IMAX 3-D treatment. Anything less would cheapen the experience of Cuarns vast and humbling depiction of two souls lost in the void, with no one to hear them but themselves.

tally, he becomes a successful stunt man, earning a lucrative income as he raises his daughter Maggie (Peralta). There is a sweet and very real chemistry between the two, each of them both child and adult. Unexpectedly, after six years or so, the childs mother reappears and wants to take Maggie away to raise her. Charming and entertaining, if overlong and a bit too melodramatic, Instructions ultimately works due to its exceptional cast. (09/06/2013) HHH Louis Black n Movies 8, Tinseltown South

J PRISONERS

INSTRUCTIONS NOT INCLUDED

D: Eugenio Derbez; with Eugenio Derbez, Jessica Lindsey, Loreto Peralta, Daniel Raymont, Alessandra Rosaldo. (PG-13, 115 min., subtitled) This latest example of commercial theatrical cinema success scored by playing to an underserved U.S. market during its opening weekend. The Mexican comedy Instructions Not Included became a surprise hit. Playboy Valentn (Mexican TV star Eugenio Derbez, who is also director/co-writer/co-producer here), the romantic scourge of Acapulco, is all the rage until Julie, a former girlfriend (Lindsey), leaves him with their baby. Suddenly, he is a father. He leaves Mexico for the States where, almost acciden-

D: Jeff Tremaine; with Johnny Knoxville, Jackson Nicoll, Greg Harris, Catherine Keener, Spike Jonze. (R, 92 min.) The documentary stunt-mlange formula of the Jackass gang has been tidied up for this fourth feature film, which sports a gentler, less life-threatening brand of jackassery and a whisper of a plot. In fact, an almost sweet sensibility emerges by the end of Bad Grandpa. Johnny Knoxville is truly unrecognizable under tons of makeup and prosthetics as the movies titular octogenarian, Irving Zisman, whos been tasked with driving his grandson Billy (Jackson Nicoll, a real find) cross-country for delivery to the boys deadbeat dad. Using hiddencamera lensing, Bad Grandpa has the duo inflict their stunts on unsuspecting populaces from Lincoln, Neb., to Raleigh, N.C. Despite its thin narrative thread, the film moves from set-piece to set-piece as Irving and Billy drive from city to city. Some of the jokes are flat-out hilarious, but most are overworked or tepid. The question is: How many servings of Irving are you good for?

JACKASS PRESENTS: BAD GRANDPA

D: Denis Villeneuve; with Jake Gyllenhaal, Hugh Jackman, Viola Davis, Paul Dano, Melissa Leo, Maria Bello, Terrence Howard. (R, 153 min.) In his English language debut, Qubcois director and Oscar nominee Denis Villeneuve (Incendies) proves theres still a little wiggle room in popcorn block-busted Hollywood to make a dark, brooding, uplifting downer of a film. Its Thanksgiving in suburban Pennsylvania when two little girls the daughters of Keller and Grace Dover (Jackman and Bello) and Franklin and Nancy Birch (Howard and Davis) go missing. Gyllenhaal is the twitchy, blinking Detective Loki, who is called in to investigate, and Dano plays a mysterious RV-driving drifter who is quickly nabbed as the obvious suspect. But few things are what they at first seem. As the mental torture caused by the girls disappearance shifts into grim and potentially unstable actions, the film stutters all over the human moral compass. A bleak police procedural stoked by the fires of obsession and regret, Prisoners is a rough, gritty ride, but one well worth taking. (09/27/2013) HHHH Marc Savlov Movies 8, Tinseltown South

GOLIYON KI RAASLEELA RAM-LEELA

D: Alan Taylor; with Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Christopher Eccleston, Idris Elba, Kat Dennings, Stellan Skarsgrd, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Rene Russo, Chris ODowd. (PG-13, 111 min.) Hows your appetite for lore? It will surely be tested in this latest installment of the Marvel cinematic universe, which presents some ponderous business about truculent elves, nasty superwarriors christened the Kursed, and intimations of a coming eternal night. This sequel to 2011s Thor warms to the touch slowly, with Thor (Hemsworth) moping around Asgard and casting long looks at Earth, where his estranged love Jane Foster (Portman) is still doing her astrophysicist thing. But once Jane discovers a portal between realms, Thor swoops into her orbit, bad penny/bonny baddie Loki (Hiddleston) enters the fray, and the film finds its forward thrust, confidently alternating beats between the solemn, the swashbuckling, and sworn to fealty to the Marvel master plan. Smartly dissociating itself from the recent rash of long-winded and self-serious superhero spectacles, The Dark World instead humbly lobs this open invitation: Lets have some fun, shall we? And so we did.

D: Ron Howard; with Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Brhl, Olivia Wilde, Alexandra Maria Lara, Pierfrancesco Favino, Christian McKay, Natalie Dormer. (R, 123 min.) Exploring two real-life titans of Formula One racing in the Seventies, Rush splits its narrative between these oil-and-water personalities, which feels about right: Its only half of a good movie. Austrian Niki Lauda (Brhl) is all about coloring between the lines, whereas British daredevil James Hunt (Hemsworth, dazzling but one-dimensional) would rather shred the coloring book into confetti. Director Ron Howard has had a curious career, but whats consistent throughout is a sure-handed showmanship served with, shall we say, a good hunk of cheese. Here, that Velveeta-grade cheese goops all over what feels like an earnest effort at something gritty and artful. And there is real artistry here in the gorgeous saturated colors, the thrillingly rendered race sequences, and the dramatic heft of Laudas half of the plot. Rush may begin as

D: Steve McQueen; with Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Lupita Nyongo, Benedict Cumberbatch, Adepero Oduye, Sarah Paulson, Paul Dano, Paul Giamatti, Alfre Woodard, Garret Dillahunt, Brad Pitt. (R, 133 min.) Brutal yet elegant, 12 Years a Slave is a beautifully rendered punch to the gut about the most shameful chapter in American history. Based on the 1853 memoir of Solomon Northup an educated freeman from Saratoga, New York, who endured a nightmare of involuntary servitude this is no Tarantino revenge fantasy. Embracing a transcendent authenticity, 12 Years a Slaves refusal to sentimentalize or manipulate bestows the film with a graceful dignity, as personified in Ejiofors mournful performance as a man of constant sorrow. Fassbender, too, is a revelation as Northups monstrous, pathetic master, Edwin Epps, and newcomer Nyongo exhibits a masterful balance of strength and frailty as the waifish female slave Patsey. Painterly and evocative, with a penchant for long, unflinching tableaux, director McQueen tackles profound despair, heartbreak, and horror and yet you cant look away. 12 Years a Slave is a movie for the ages. Absolutely remarkable.

League of Extraordinary Gz CD Release


With debut long-player #LeagueShit having cemented its place as perhaps the finest hip-hop album this citys ever seen,
the eight members of the League of Extraordinary Gz are starting to consider their methods of expansion. We cant really think on an Austin level anymore, says Lowkey, a prominent voice on #LeagueShit. We love Austin, and we paid our dues in this scene, but we want it to be one of the most respected releases anywhere. Its about getting out of Austin. How that happens remains to be seen. For now, the League members eye a series of solo projects theyve been working on since before #LeagueShit took off, including a solo album from Lowkey, a second iteration of Tuk-da-Gat and S.Dots White Boy Mixtape series, and W420, a long-delayed Dred Skott album that League genius Reggie Coby plans to finish. In addition, the groups looking to continue eulogizing its fallen founder, Esbe Da 6th Street Bully, whose presence remains felt both on the mic and in concept throughout #LeagueShit. You dont want to dwell on it, but you cant help it, says Lowkey. Thats our brother whos gone. The rapper reveals that the LOEGz is piecing together a posthumous solo Esbe LP. Thats been the plan ever since he passed away. Hes the best rapper to ever come out of Austin. We owe it to him to show people why we think that. Hes not someone on a T-shirt. Its a tragedy that hes not here, so its on us to make sure that his kids have something to be proud of. We need to give him the legacy he deserves. Chase Hoffberger

UKULELE ORCHESTRA OF GREAT BRITAIN

Red 7, Friday 22

THE BESNARD LAKES

Need more proof that people are taking the ukulele seriously? Heres eight classically dressed individuals reinterpreting everything from Ode to Joy to Smells Like Teen Spirit. Novelty? Sure, but theres true virtuosity here, which is why theyve played Carnegie Hall. Austin Ukulele Society flash mobs the McCullough lobby on Friday, 6:15pm, while the headliners invite attendees to bring their own uke for an interactive version of Tom Pettys American Girl. Luke Winkie

Hard to know why the Besnard Lakes have been forgotten. The Montrealers make huge, remote, shifty post-rock, the sort of engulfing experience that brings us face to face with the big picture. Fronted by marrieds Jace Lasek and Olga Goreas, the quartets fallen into critical indifference lately, by no fault of their own. This years Until in Excess, Imperceptible UFO still thrills, having worked its way onto the Polaris Prize long list. Luke Winkie

to big crowds outdoors at Stubbs, but inside afterward, a pair of upstarts from flyover country team up for Americana sounds both taut and liberating. Oklahomas Samantha Crain gives quivering voice to themes of human interaction and deep-rooted wanderlust with stunningly beautiful results. Ha Ha Tonka, a quartet from the Missouri Ozarks, imports fourth LP Lessons, which expands a sonic palette still accessible and hardcharging. Jim Caligiuri

Gilmore, Amplified Heat, Latasha Lee & the BlackTies, Michael Kingcaid, Will Rhodes, Erin Ivey and more inhabit the roots rock quintets legendary Winterland set list. Theyll surely remember The Last Waltzs title card: This film should be played loud! Kevin Curtin

Belmont, Friday 22

CASS MCCOMBS

Cass McCombs, whose mother babysat me in the early Seventies, delivers his magnum opus on Octobers Big Wheel and Others (Domino), LP lucky No. 7. From the brutal whimsy of Morning Star and steel-lined delicacy of Brighter! revisited by the late actress Karen Black on the second CD to drug comas (Dealing) and restless hookers (Satan Is My Toy), the double album bottles his best work, the voice finally front and center. The nine-minute Everything Has to Be Just-So recalls his early free moans, but McCombs verges on greatness. Pink Nasty opens. Raoul Hernandez

On disc most recently summers Shine Sara Hickman tackles both the silly and the serious with equal measure and often with delightful consequences. In concert, some of the earnestness remains, but Hickman cant help being the happiest person alive. Her band of local ringers easily navigates the twists and turns with glorious guitars, buoyant rhythms, and soul-stirring vocals. The engaging folk-pop of the Belle Sounds, a new collaboration between locals Nolle Hampton and Andr Moran, makes a perfect opener. Jim Caligiuri

Splitting her time between Austin and Memphis now that shes coupled with Will Sexton, Delta folkstress Amy LaVere has spent the past eight Tuesdays lugging her worn upright bass to the Saxon Pub. There, the Louisiana-born singers uniquely delicate voice finds true grit in the bottom of a whiskey glass, as songs from 2011 touchstone Stranger Me and a few from her band Motel Mirrors warm the wooden walls with a familiarity youd reserve for a local.

Early on, the living anvil that is Oaklands High on Fire found favor with hammer-and-tongs metal in this burg, and thus return to lay waste to Mohawk. If you dont know the band and have always fantasized about a mash-up of Black Sabbath and Celtic Frost, heres your dream come true.

T H E A U S T I N C H R O N I C L E NOVEMBER 22, 2013 a u s t i n c h r o n i c l e . c o m

I have been living with my boyfriend for nearly a year and have been getting along marvelously EXCEPT that a couple of weeks ago he got a job offer from a financial services company in Houston. At first, he said he wasnt considering it, but this weekend he said he really thinks he should take the job and is pressuring me to move with him. I have a good job here and all of our friends are here and frankly, I think this may be a deal killer for me. Am I being selfish? How bad could Houston be, really?

LUV DOC
Dear Luv Doc,

The

COMIX

Houston!

Homey OK, regardless of the general feeling of anxiety I get when I drive through Houston, I have to admit, mostly all I have done is drive through Houston. That probably says something. There arent a lot of compelling topographical features at least none viewable from the interstate and the architecture doesnt really blow my socks off, either and truthfully, Houston can be stanky even where its swanky like in River Oaks. If it smelled that bad in any other rich neighborhood in America, they would have the security guards start shooting all the homeless people within a 20-mile radius, but in Houston the solution is just to smoke cigarettes. Thus, old men from Houston tend to sound a like a cross between Harvey Fierstein and Tom Waits (with Ross Perots accent) and old women sound like either Patty and Selma (Marge Simpsons sisters) or Sue Bob White. Of course, I am over-simplifying. Houston is obviously much more than the titty bars, hot tub dealerships, and indoor gun ranges visible from the interstate; it boasts some of the finest museums, restaurants, and arts facilities in the nation. It also has a heartbreakingly disappointing football team, which, I think we can all agree, is the hallmark of any culturally rich metropolis. AMIRITE, Miami? Speaking of Miami, heres one thing Houston doesnt have: crazy people gnawing off homeless peoples faces on the side of the interstate. Those titty bars and gun ranges dont look BENDER BREAK-UP BOY so bad now, do they? Thank you, Miami Love, Houston. Do you do the weird stuff? I said if However, regardless of how you feel about the city itself it werent for the BF, Id be all over you mdamnself, but hes generous Homey, the question you need to ask yourself is whether and kink-curious... Interested or or not you dig this dude enough to put his needs ahead just flattered? When: Saturday, of yours. I cant answer that for you other than to make November 16, 2013. Where: some snarky comments about Space City. Sometimes Bender Bar and Grill. You: Man. Me: Woman. #900004 its OK to be selfish, and sometimes being selfish means KITTEN doing what it takes to make your partner happy so you Leaving Black Sheep I spotted you can be together. And yes, that works both ways. on Lamar. I wanted your kitten

MR. SMARTY PANTS KNOWS


A large percentage of the budget for Monty Python and the Holy Grail was donated by members of Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd. The last time a state willingly ceded territory was when Maine split from Massachusetts in 1820. If you stir a cup of warm tea, you are adding kinetic energy to it, but not enough to heat it up. Stirring a cup of tea adds heat at a rate of about a ten-millionth of a watt and youd be losing heat faster than adding it. Youd need at least 700 watts to make it boil. Therefore means for that reason, consequently, or thus. Therefor means for that or for it. For the pilot episode of SpongeBob SquarePants, show creator Stephen Hillenburg brought in a tank of helium for the voice actors to use to augment their voices. Fortunately for Tom Kenny, once he came up with the voice for SpongeBob using helium, he was able to voice it from that point forward without helium.
Above is information that Mr. Smarty Pants read in a book, a magazine, or the newspaper; heard on the radio; saw on television; or overheard at a party. Got facts? Write to Mr. Smarty Pants at the Chronicle, or email mrpants@austinchronicle.com.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Costa Rica will be closing its zoos in 2014. What will happen to the
400 or so animals that are housed there? They will have to be rehabilitated at animal rescue centers and then released into the wild. I suspect there will be a metaphorically similar process going on for you in the coming months, Sagittarius. Parts of your instinctual nature will, in a sense, be freed from captivity. You will need to find ways to retrain your animal intelligence to function outside of the tame conditions it got used to.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Will fate kick your sweet ass sometime soon? Quite possibly. You may be
compelled to face up to the consequences of your unloving actions or unconscious decisions. Im pleased to tell you, however, that you might be able to dramatically minimize or even neutralize the butt-thumping. How? Go over the events of the last 11 months, and identify times when you werent your very best self or didnt live up to your highest ideals. Then perform rituals of atonement. Express your desire to correct wrong turns. Give gifts that will heal damaged dynamics.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Bill Withers became a big star in the
Seventies with hits like Aint No Sunshine and Lean on Me. But he hasnt recorded a new album since 1985, nor has he toured. What happened? In Still Bill, the documentary film about his life, Withers says, I watch other people show off and I say, Man, I used to want to show off. If I could just get, you know, moved to. I need a little injection in my showin off gland. I wish you could get an injection like that, too, Aquarius. Id like to see you show off more. Not in a contrived, over-the-top, Lady Gaga-esque way. Rather, the purpose would be to get more aggressive in showing people who you are and what you can do. I want your talents and assets to be better known.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): I have a feeling that your value will be rising in the coming weeks. An
attractive person you thought was out of your league may express curiosity about you. You could get an offer to do an interesting job or task that you had previously considered unavailable. I bet your reputation will be growing, mostly for the better. Who knows? If you put a half-eaten piece of your toast for sale on eBay, it might sell for as much as if it were Justin Timberlakes toast. Heres the upshot: You should have confidence in your power to attract bigger rewards and more appreciation.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): The poet Charles Baudelaire prayed for help, but not to God rather he
prayed to the writer Edgar Allan Poe. Novelist Malcolm Lowry sometimes pleaded with God to give him insight, but he also prayed to the writer Franz Kafka. I really like this approach to seeking guidance, and recommend it to you in the coming days. Which hero, dead or alive, could you call on to uplift you? What amazing character might bring you the inspiration you need? Be brazen and imaginative. The spirits could be of more help than you can imagine. Magic is afoot.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): U.S. Confederate Gen. Richard S. Ewell (1817-72) sometimes experienced
episodes in which he truly thought he was a bird. Princess Alexandra of Bavaria (1826-75) believed that when she was young, she had eaten a glass piano. Then there was the Prussian military officer Gebhard Leberecht von Blcher (1742-1819), who imagined he was pregnant with an elephant. Sad and funny and crazy, right? And yet its my understanding that all of us have fixed delusions. They are less bizarre than those I cited, but they can still be debilitating. What are yours, Taurus? Do you secretly believe that a certain turning point in your past scarred you forever? Are you incorrectly wracked with anger or guilt because of some event that may not have actually happened the way you remember it? Heres the good news: Now is an excellent time to shed your fixed delusions.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Philosopher Eckhart Tolle suggests that there may be one person who reflects your love back to you more clearly and more intensely than others. For some of us, this numinous reflection comes from a special animal. Whatever is the case for you, Gemini, I urge you to devote extra time to your relationship with this creature in the next 14 days. Meditate on how you could provide more nurturing and inspiration. Brainstorm about the possibility of deepening your connection. What practical actions could you take to boost your loved ones fortunes?

CANCER (June 21-July 22): The Cancerian soprano Kirsten Flagstad was regarded as one of the great
operatic singers of the 20th century. Critic Desmond Shawe-Taylor said that No one within living memory surpassed her in sheer beauty and consistency of line and tone. She specialized in the operas of German composer Richard Wagner, whose master work, The Ring of the Nibelung, takes 15 hours to perform. Flagstad was asked to name the single most important thing she needed in order to perform Wagners music with the excellence it demanded. Her answer: comfortable shoes. Regard that as good advice for your own life and work, Cancerian both literally and metaphorically. Its time to get really well-grounded.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Have you ever been in a social situation where you really didnt care what anyone
thought of you and therefore felt absolutely free to act on your inner promptings? When was the last time you lost all your inhibitions and self-consciousness while making love? Can you truly say that sometime recently you have been totally responsive to your festive impulses? If you have experienced any blockages in expressing this type of energy, now is a perfect moment to fix that. You have a date with robust, innocent self-expression.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Norwegian public television is experimenting with a phenomenon called
Slow TV. In one reality show, the main character built a fire with logs and kept it burning for 12 hours. In another program, patient viewers watched for five days as a cruise ship made its way along the Norwegian coast. A third show featured a woman knitting a sweater from start to finish. I wish you would get hooked on slow-motion activities like those, Virgo. Maybe it would help you lower your thoughts-per-minute rate and influence you to take longer, deeper breaths and remember that relaxation is an art you can cultivate. And then you would be in righteous alignment with the cosmic rhythms.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Youre smarter than you think you are, and soon you will be even smarter.
Previously inaccessible wisdom is seeping up from the depths of your subconscious mind, making its way to your conscious awareness. Your eyes are noticing more than they usually do. Your memory is working at peak levels. And your enhanced ability to entertain paradoxical ideas is giving you special insight into the nature of reality. What will you do with this influx of higher intelligence? I suggest you focus its full force on one of your knottiest problems.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The Paris Review interviewed Mexican poet Octavio Paz. Just how much
revising do you do? the interviewer asked. I revise incessantly, Paz replied. Some critics say too much, and they may be right. But if theres a danger in revising, there is much more danger in not revising. I believe in inspiration, but I also believe that weve got to help inspiration, restrain it, and even contradict it. I bring this up, Scorpio, because I believe you are ripe for a phase of intense revision. Inspiration has visited you a lot lately, but now it will subside for a while so you can wrangle all your raw material into graceful, resilient, enduring shapes.
