· Whole Foods CEO John Mackey has a blog

· With a Beavis & Butt-head DVD retrospective, an Office Space DVD reissue and an upcoming film, Mike Judge has been busy lately. The Houston Chronicle has a profile. I learned from the DVD that Swingline had never made a red stapler before “Office Space,” but that now the red stapler has become their best seller.

· Neil Michael Hagerty and the Howling Hex will be back in Austin on December 1st, performing at the Drafthouse with the film “Fantastic Planet.”

· Gretchen Wilson and Death Cab for Cutie recently taped new Austin City Limits episodes.

· The Armadillo Podcast has an interview with Kinky Friedman. According to what I heard, if you vote in the primary, you won’t be allowed to sign the petition to get Kinky on the ballot.

· Gentrification and rapidly rising property values on the East side are making things difficult for home owners. Mark Rogers of the Guadalupe Neighborhood Development Corporation says: “(We got a flyer for) this house – two bed, two bath going for $325,000. We bought a house right on the next street in 1999 for only $45,000, and that was from a realtor selling at the market price.”


An interview with American Analog Set, who play their last Austin show on December 11th at the Parish (as the interview reveals, this is probably not their last Austin show, but their last “official” tour. More in this press release from Tag Team Media.).

Is the venue that cried wolf, Church of the Friendly Ghost, really closing its doors this time on December 1st?
