    Yes They Cannes: Producers, Agents Shopping Dallas Buyer's Club 'Round France

    Photo by Patrick Michels‚ÄčAfter 10 long years of maybes, doubtfuls and dunnos, it would appear that The Dallas Buyer's Club, the true-life tale of Ron Woodroof, is closer to becoming a big-screen reality: Relativity Media today issued a press release announcing that co-producer Robbie Brenner is sh ...

    Mark Donald Resigns as Observer Editor

    ‚ÄčAs I write this my farewell post, I keep hearing in my head the lyrics to a song from the Marx Brothers classic film Animal Crackers: "Hello, I must be going/ I cannot stay, I came to say/I must be going." Similar to Groucho's character, Captain Spaulding, it seems as though I just said hello, ju ... More >>

    Good God, Lookie There: Bible Girl's Book!

    Still not sure who gets the copy of Holy Roller (though the Monty Python fan's a real player), but today is the official publication date of former Dallas Observer editor Julie Lyons's tome that bears the subtitle "Finding Redemption and the Holy Ghost in a Forgotten Texas Church." That church ... More >>

    What God Says About Dirty Old Men

    Bible Girl was all ready to wax indignant about the prospect of children being ripped from their mothers, and then I read about the bed. Which is to say: the bed in the temple in Eldorado, where dirty old men got their freak on with underage virgins. Yep, right about then all my sympathy went out t ... More >>

    Bible Girl Gets Religion

    I've been wondering why we've been getting so many comments in recent days attached to Bible Girl's September '06 piece about "the mystery of sexual orientation," already one of her greatest hits. Turns out, it's the piece linked to in a profile of Bible Girl that appears on GetReligion.org, where O ... More >>

    Eighty Thousand Still Without Power -- and Our Editor's One of Them. TXU, We're Lookin' at You.

    The fish tank is getting cloudy. Good thing I'm not a goldfish. Last night I made dinner on a camp stove and smoked up the entire house. Everything smells like seared olive oil and teriyaki sauce. I got dressed in the dark this morning, which some people say I do anyway. I've discovered that an 1, ... More >>

    Bible Girl? Why, Whatever Do You Mean?

    Weird this is, we actually took this photo off Paul Kix's MySpace page...

Dreher came back to it over the ... More >>

    Day of Inaction

    Could this be an indication of what the "Day of Action" holds in store? Driving in to Oak Lawn this morning from my home in southern Dallas, where much of the city's Latino population lives, I encountered the lightest rush-hour traffic I've seen all year. A whole lot of people are staying home--or a ... More >>

    They've Done It Again

    The kids have walked out of DISD classes again. I can look outside my window, at the corner of Oak Lawn and Maple avenues, and see a steady stream of students--probably some 50 or 60--walking south on Maple Avenue, hollering and waving their arms. A couple are carrying Mexican flags; a police car is ... More >>

    Holy Horse Apples

    Let me solve one mystery right upfront. During the two hours of Cavalia's Cirque du Soleil-inspired spectacle combining horses, riders, acrobats and aerialists, not a single animal was seen to relieve itself. Forty-seven horses, most of which had a part in last night's show: Not a dribble, not a tur ... More >>

    In my experience--helping get a church built in South Dallas last year and not having anyone in city government to grease the wheels for us, for reasons I won't detail here (and they don't reflect well on the city)--it is extremely difficult to work with the city of Dallas in obtaining any and all k ...
