    Dec 4, 2014 | D Magazine

    The greatest anomaly of 2014 award has to go to Serial , that's the profane and obsessive offshoot of This American Life. The program utilizes the Dickensian form of the radio serial, a style long thought abandoned in the early-to-mid 20th century.

  2. Trinity Toll Road Town Hall Backs Pro-Roaders Against the RopesRead the original story w/Photo

    Dec 4, 2014 | D Magazine

    A standing room only crowd of more than 500 people packed the auditorium at Rosemont Elementary in Oak Cliff yesterday evening for what was perhaps the most honest, open debate about the Trinity Toll Road ever to take place in this city. The event, organized by State Representative Rafael Anchia, pitted the most outspoken representatives of the pro- and anti-toll road debate in a town hall-style discussion about the controversial plans to build a high speed traffic artery through the Trinity River floodway.

    Dec 3, 2014 | D Magazine

    What would we do in Dallas if we didn't have the Trinity Toll Road to talk about? The "zombie road," which is back from the dead and suddenly, once again, topic du jour in our fair burg will get a roll-em-out, sock-em, rock-em, run-em-dry, spitfire, conversational whooping this evening at the Charles Semos Campus of Rosemont Elementary in Oak Cliff. The public event in Scott Griggs' council district promises to be the debate that the Stemmons Corridor Business Association luncheon wasn't .

    Jim Schutze of the Dallas Observer join me in Jim's living room to discuss Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings' announcement that he will run for re-election. Do his opponents have a chance? What has the mayor accomplished? How can he help DISD reform? When will Eric pay Rudy Bush of the DMN the $20 he now owes him? Will the tollway be built? Why is DISD so important to this election? Why can't Jim ever talk directly into a microphone? And why does everyone hate Eric so much? We answer-ish all these questions and more in the latest SAGA Pod.

    I trust you are all sufficiently recovered from last week's federally-mandated feasting to pay heed to what I am about to say because I am going to say this but once: D Magazine' s 10 Most Eligible Men in Dallas list is a joke. This ordinarily upstanding periodical purports to present a collection of gentlemen who exemplify the finest specimens of masculinity in our corner of northern Texas, and yet there's not a single farmer or rancher among them? The only manual laborer in the bunch is a damn Canuck paid to play-act at some form of figure-skating combat.

    Justin Timberlake is in town tonight , and for events writers, that's pretty much a underhanded softball pitch. What else do you need to know? He's pretty much the most entertaining guy on the planet, and congrats to Mr. Timberlake for far exceeding the expectations of being both a child star and an ex-member of a 90s boy band.

    I had no idea that Texas Theatre still did their Tuesday Night Trash series, but that's because I've long avoided seeing bad films on purpose. I see enough on accident already.

  9. So What's the Mayor's Trinity Toll Road Task Force Actually Going to Do?Read the original story w/Photo

    Dec 1, 2014 | D Magazine

    A couple of weeks ago, Mayor Mike Rawlings announced at a rather strange-sounding event at Babb Bros BBQ that he had put together a task force of experts who would look at the Trinity Roll Road and make sure it was "special" and of the "highest quality." Afterwards, there was speculation about what the move meant.

    When successful musicians start appearing in movies, visiting the White House, and modeling, it becomes harder for their fans to take them seriously, since they may have identified them as outspoken elements of the counterculture. Luckily for hip hop artist Common,who has done all of those things, it's been less of an issue.

    I've tried to at least gather a few options for you today, and the general rule with Thanksgiving is that the bars will eventually open late and sans food service. That being said, Side/Dish has an extensive list of dining establishments that are actually open and you can find that here .

  13. How the Cowboys Ruined ThanksgivingRead the original story

    Nov 26, 2014 | D Magazine

    That's the claim that Mike Shropshire makes about America's Team's annual Turkey Day match, in a piece published today on Slate : The football aspect has warped Thanksgiving in this region to the point that the success of the family interchange relies mostly on the outcome of the game. I assume that family counselors, emergency rooms, and divorce lawyers see business skyrocket when the Cowboys lose on Thanksgiving.

    I don't know about you, but the night before Thanksgiving can be a little tense. It's the anticipation of all the potentially colorful discussions one might have with extended family regarding world issues, politics, and economics.

    I am of two minds about the forthcoming holiday. On the one hand, it was that lousy crook Abe Lincoln - father of the federal income tax, a progressive income tax - who instituted the Day of Thanks Giving as a late November national mandate instead of letting each state handle its own business like the Good Lord and the Founders intended.

    The 90s nostalgia movement has had an enormous influence in 2014, dictating everything from the programming at large-scale music festivals to obscure music documentaries playing at the local cinema. Tonight's events are proof of this trend, as two acts who were big in the Clinton Era will be celebrated with equal regard.

    Nov 24, 2014 | D Magazine

    Former Dallas Mayor and former U.S. Trade Ambassador Ron Kirk is now a senior advisor to Texas Central Railway , the private company that hopes to bring high speed rail to Texas. The news comes via a statement Kirk posted on the company's website: I have seen just about all of the high-speed rail systems throughout Europe and Asia, and the competitive part of me feels that if the rest of the world can do this, why can't we right here in the United States? This along with the practical attraction to having an alternative transportation mode between two of the fastest growing economic zones in the country sparked my interest and compelled me to join the Texas Central Railway team.
