    "He Was My Hero."

    The week began with the horrific news that one of Dallas' most beloved and gifted musicians had been shot and killed, for reasons still to be unraveled -- which has stopped few from debating them. Now, the week ends with the funeral of Carter Albrech...

    AA Engages in Some Extra Credit

    But if the test works out on the 700-plus flights leaving their hearts in San Francisco between September 10 and September 30, the airline will expand the service. And, how nice, "receipts will be provided to passengers upon request." The airline's b...

    Woodbelly to Ink With Sony?

    Cas Haley, the second place finisher on America's Got Talent, swears he's happy he didn't finish first. Otherwise he'd have been ground in the gears of ye ol' reality TV machine. Turns out, No. 2 is a pretty sweet victory anyway: This morning on the ...

    On Thin Ice

    The Dallas Stars will hold their annual "Ice Breaker" on Saturday. And, lemme guess, they'll stage their annual "Heatbreaker" come April? 'Twas five months ago the Stars bowed out of the '07 NHL Playoffs with a Game 7, first-round loss in Vancouver. ...

    On Your Marcus

    Also, Gridskipper -- the self-described "urban travel guide" -- pays a visit to the downtown Dallas flagship, in honor of the store's 100th anniversary. And I do like this tribute to the Zodiac Room: I think if I had a terminal disease and "Make A W...

    At the Grand Hotel, Redux

    Urban photographer NinjaTune has discovered the Grand Hotel looks like it did a decade ago -- without, ya know, guests. As it turns out, my real-estate developer pal was right: Much of the Dallas Grand Hotel is indeed in great shape -- left almost...

    Have You Pimped A Ford Lately?

    That's how one of my all-time favorite Bill Hicks routines starts, and I couldn't help but think of it when I read this article in The New York Times about a recent nifty/nefarious marketing trick pulled by Ford. Over the past eight weeks, says The T...

    Norah Jones Catches Arcade Fire

    "It's just a song we like, so we're gonna do it," she tells the audience, which claps politely, before she launches into a description of the Canadian band. "They're nice." Aw. Hurry, lest it vanish in the ether. Oh, wait ... And if you absolutely ha...

    Seared Tuna

    OK, I'm promising myself this won't deteriorate into a season of Bill bashing. And it won't. But since the NFL season doesn't technically start until tomorrow night, can I get in one more (last?) crotch-kick to Coach Parcells? Thanks. If you missed ...

    The Price is Right -- Very Right!

    Wii Can't We All Get Along?

    It's not terribly interesting that the Addison outpost of a food-n-boozery is hosting a "Wii night" every Tuesday night. Nor is Blackfinn's wacky slogan terribly wacky (or original): "Real Men Wii Standing Up," oof. What is interesting -...

    A Grand Return? Um, Maybe.

    For as long as I can recall, the Dallas Grand Hotel has been neither grand nor much of a hotel. Last time I stepped foot in the place, my brother was in town from Norman for Texas-OU -- this was in the early 1990s -- and it already had one foot plant...

    Beautiful Memories of a Beautiful Guy

    Around the time I moved to New York, Carter started playing with the New Bohemians. He came up to the city to do some recording with Edie Brickell, and called me one night to hang out. (Me! He called me!) I was at a Rhett Miller show at the Bowery Ba...

    Fattening Up (Bank Accounts) With The Colonel
