    Ash at House of Blues: Last Night I Was a Wayward Kid in Rural England Again

    The last time I told you all a story about my teenage years, Billy Corgan got really angry. So I tell you this story in the hope that it will, for no apparent reason, anger Billy Corgan again. I was either 14 or 15, and I was living in a tiny village somewhere in the English Cotswolds called Hook N ... More >>

    Texas Highway Patrolman Tells Fellow Responders: We're Distracted Drivers Too.

    ​The Enforcement Expo wraps up its three-day stay at the Dallas Convention Center today, which means: There's goes the Fear and Loathing coverage I'd planned for months. But that's not important. What is? Yesterday's presentation by a 21-year vet of the Texas Highway Patrol, during which the great ... More >>

    Listomania: The Best Songs to Listen to During a High-Speed Chase

    High speed car chase at DC9 HQ, y'all!​Just a few minutes ago, the not-so-high-speed chase that happened in Dallas passed by the Dallas Observer offices.

    Idol Rich: And the Winner Is...

    ​This is, essentially, a "closure" post. I think we all have to come terms with the fact that Fort Worth/Cool's Casey James was let go in favor of the inferior Lee DeWyze. Whether or not I think CJ should be the American Idol, I've blogged the finale because he and a couple of other North Texans w ... More >>

    Isn't That Stacking the Deck?

    Till this morning, I kinda think I knew America's Got Talent was back on NBC (for a third season, ho-lee). But now, I am much more certain: The show that made Terry Fator and Cas Haley household names last summer does indeed air Tuesday nights, and last night the Dallas Desperados Dancers took their ...

    Theater Critics Camp Diary, Days 3 through 9

    I have such fond memories of Girl Scout Camp. S'mores, songs around the campfire, ghost stories told in creaky bunks. Good times. Now I am at Theater Critics Camp in Connecticut, a two-week indoctrination into a cult that worships the three S's: Shaw, Shakespeare and Sondheim. Did you see that movie ... More >>

    May Madness

    Dirk Nowitzki is humming David Hasselhoff. Steve Nash digs Nelly Furtado. And Michael Finley, well, he's singing the blues. Those three once had perfect harmony as the Dallas Mavericks' Big Three, but in a cruel act of irony it's Finley--the one forced out of Dallas--who'll be forced to watch as Dir ... More >>

    And learn David Hasselhoff's "Looking For Freedom," the Knight Rider's 1989 "hit" credited with, oh, tearing down the Berlin Wall. (Well, that's what Hasselhoff says.) Now, it's being touted as the reason Nowitzki's such a clutch free-throw shooter: The Mav says here that when he's at the charity st ... More >>
