Merry Xmas at the Austin Chronicle


Marjorie Baumgarten and Michael Ventura at the Chron Xmas party.

Tiffany and I took Nicholas to the Austin Chronicle's Christmas party last night, which is always the biggest, most lavish event the Chronicle puts on each year. The assortment of food is eye-popping, as is the long, long table laden with pies of many flavors (peanut butter!).

Nicholas had a great time, and danced with me some by the kareoke setup. The surprise was to briefly meet the very fine writer Michael Ventura.

I've been writing a column about the Texas film industry for the Chronicle for four years now (four years at the Austin American-Statesman before that), and I appreciate the many fine folks who make it what it is--one of the treasures of Austin. Happy holidays to you all.

Joe,

Nice hanging out with you at the Keep Austin Bizarre Bazaar. Thanks for signing your book and to hear about what you are working on now.
