It all started out in Austin in the early 70s. A very tall and talented musician named Ray Benson got together with some buddies to form Asleep at the Wheel. Asked if his now iconic band personified the Austin Sound, Benson said, No! It was an Austin scene in those days and still is there are many sounds!
The Grammy Award winning sound could be heard Tuesday night at the Dallas Arboretums Concerts in the Garden. Now in its 15th year, the sold-out crowd gathered on the hillside to hear the famed Texas swing music and also enjoy the award-winning Chihuly Nights exhibit.
When MTV announced the creation of a brand new series about teenage werewolf, all I could do was roll my eyes and think Yet another Twilight-esque creation. In other words heavy on the teen angst and the romance, light on the acting and plot. Was I ever wrong.Teen Wolf has become one of the summers most addicting shows.

With ‘Howl’s Moving Castle’, it has the same quirks that can make their films fall flat, while sometimes also causing them to reach awesome heights of coolness!
“When an unconfident young woman is cursed with an old body by a spiteful witch, her only chance of breaking the spell lies with a self-indulgent yet insecure young wizard and his companions in his legged, walking home.”
The thing I loved about it though was the world it created, as often their films make me feel like I’m watching a film based on an awesome JRPG, like a ‘Final Fantasy’ game. But the s
