As seen nationally

  • Alejandro Escovedo has received a lot of coverage in connection with the release of Real Animal. One of the most thoughtful pieces that I’ve seen appears in The New Republic of all places, and might for some reason not receive all the attention that it merits (Breakout, byline David Hajdu, posted on line August 13). I used to go out and hear Rank and File, but never understood the “cow-punk” or “twang-rock” labels. R&F could make some Noise.
  • Those unable to make a 100% investment in canine companionship are now looking into time-share dogs, reports Tuesday’s WSJ (An Idea Whose Time Has Come: The Time-Share Dog, byline Anjali Athavaley). The dog with two names is an Austinite.
  • Austin kitchen diva and all-round general whirlwind of activity Angela Shelf Medearis received nearly an entire page of attention in the June issue of Family Circle magazine for her Book Boosters project.
  • And, then, there’s Whole Foods in the news for its third-quarter results and for working to reposition its brand as an economical choice. This is in the business press everywhere and impossible to overlook.
