Cruzifying Keystone Facts

Bless his heart, Ted Cruz didn’t get the memo. Again. That would be the memo — the extensive reporting, in fact — shooting holes in industry predictions that if the Keystone Pipeline is allowed to be built from Alberta, C...

Yes. Now, what to do?

Prop 6 …

… would waste billions on a flawed water plan.
For a plan that purports to thoughtfully guide Texas through a crowded, thirsty future, the 2012 State Water Plan reads unsettlingly like a playbook from the last century: dams to divert already limp river flows, big pipes pump...


Eat, Pray, Watch

It was a bad idea to go see the movie Gravity at the Coyote Drive-In (223 NE 4th St.). The drive-in is great, but a movie like that needs a more cinematic setting — and one that can’t be ruined by some jerks blaring Tejano ...

Farm to (Fancy) Table

REAL School Gardens isn’t just about helping students eat well.

The fact that I don’t have children has never stopped me from judging parents who can’t control their brood in public. I was at Los Paisanos (1446 N. Main St.), enjoying what I consider the best caldo de pollo ($6.99) in th...


Voter Up

Fort Worth Weekly
Static loves the smell of democracy in the morning. On Nov. 5, Texas will be holding elections on nine proposed constitutional amendments. For the most part, the measures aren’t the stuff of bumper stickers or rallies, but st...

Alford: “We wanted it to have a DIY sound, and that’s pretty much how we made it.”

Slumberbuzz Awakens

The shoegaze quintet’s debut has been a long time coming — and sounds like it.
Last January, Slumberbuzz had changed its name, solidified its sound and lineup, and written enough material to fill an album. At the time, the band was hoping to put out a full-length, but member shifts and life in general see...
