    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!

    No, it was that Commissioner Price politely pointed out to me that I'm in the same basket with The Dallas Morning News editorial page. Yikes! Lemme outta here! The News has an editorial today lambasting the county commissioners for totally screwing ...

    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

    Ain't no secret that too much KFC (they're not allowed to actually say "chicken" any more, right?) will pretty much kill you in a full-on calorie onslaught, coating your insides in a layer of sticky trans-fat and clogging your veins with coagulated c...

    Guns Up 49, Pony Up 9

    But this time, even in a 40-point defeat, we unearth some good news. Like, um, OK, SMU has the same exact record as Michigan. And, since they don't tailgate but instead "boulevard" at Ford Stadium, I think it's safe to say this Green Day diddy can al...
