What Ever Happened to Mandy Lane?

It’s still in limbo, but the Fort Worth filmmaker behind it forges on.
KRISTIAN LIN
In October 2006, Fort Worth Weekly reported the story of how Fort Worth’s Chad Feehan had scored a huge hit. His slasher flick All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, filmed in Texas, had played to an ecstatic crowd of about 1,400 peop...


Love to Circles

John Q. Reader
To the editor: I just got through reading “A New Curve” (Feb. 1, 2012) on the traffic circles. My wife is the one who was too busy to talk with you but yelled, “We love it!” She’s a home health occupational therapist ...



Bloody Monday

John Q. Reader
To the editor: The Metropolis story “Bloody Monday at JPS” (Oct. 26, 2011) by Peter Gorman is another testament to the economy gone sour. And the middle class and lower class are the sacrificial lambs at the altar of avaric...


Good Luck to 1919

John Q. Reader
To the editor: I enjoyed reading Jimmy Fowler’s story on 1919 Hemphill (“Evolving at 1919,” Oct. 12, 2011). It’s a unique place for music, films, causes, and so forth — an island of blue in this area’s sea of red. W...

John Q. Reader
To the editor: I too am a veteran of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, and I have to say that Jeff Prince’s article (“The Incredible Shrinking Star-Telegram,” June 29, 2011) was most impressive. The common theme seems to be t...


Loving Glass

John Q. Reader
To the editor: When I read Kristian Lin’s pan of Hydrogen Jukebox (“Hot Air,” June 1, 2011), I was puzzled until I got to the fourth (!) paragraph. “My problem with Hydrogen Jukebox is simple: I don’t like Philip Glas...



Dear Chow, Baby

Editor’s note: Despite Christy Goldfinch’s departure from the role, Chow, Baby goes on. See page 27 for this week’s column.
John Q. Reader
Oh no. Say it isn’t so. I’m very disappointed. Having kicked my weekend off with your column for years now, I will miss my Chow, Baby very much. Once I even went to an Asian place on East Berry Street called “Ho” becaus...


His Blood Boils — In a Good Way

John Q. Reader
To the editor: Just wanted to drop a note in praise of an article that music columnist (and associate editor) Anthony Mariani wrote a few weeks back.
