Beyond the spreading success of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series, Run or Dye and the “awesomely terrifying obstacle course” known as the Zombie Run, themed runs are venturing into an ironic territory filled with fake mustaches, booze, corndogs and Twinkies. Run in Texas’ “San Antonio original” is admittedly “not a trail run for beginners” as it courses through rocky, wooded terrain in the pitch dark. (A flashlight or headlamp is required.) Those willing to brave bruises, sprains and goat-sucking predators get rewarded with brews and barbecue at the post-race party.

Like the bulk of Austin Mahone’s Instagram account, this one’s a selfie. In a white tank top, hair coifed up real big, Mahone arranges his facial features in the manner of good-looking people well versed in taking pictures of themselves—lips lightly pursed, eyebrows up, posing without posing.
“Running on the beach will be the death of me,” the caption says. It’s enough to garner 7,000 comments and 332,000 little hearts of approval from Mahone’s massive teen following, an audience seemingly dependent on an IV drip of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Known as the Mahomies, Austin’s crew numbers well into the millions.
Rising originally on Youtube, Mahone now holds some serious influence over the young wallets and fluttering stomachs of his adolescent audience. But as “Baby” did to Bieber, Mahone needs one smash single to boost him into the next level of superstardom. At 18-years-old, Mahone’s got the career infrastructure in place to jump to the .01 percent of Big Pop. More importantly, it appears he’s got the workhorse ethic to follow through at a vital crossroads period for teen idols, when the decisions of legal adulthood can send them into dens of vice and crumbling anxiety. At 18, on the road for his second headlining tour, Mahone’s already light-years away from his first bout of videos, singing from his bedroom in the doldrums of San Antonio.
Also known as “Mudflap,” “country comedian” Steve McGrew is a former cartoonist for the Houston Chronicle and now co-hosts a Denver morning radio show with partner in crime Kelly Ford.
Self-categorized as a “comedian, actor, TV host, matchmaker, wingman, enthusiastic karaoke singer and awkward roller skater,” Helen Hong has parlayed her irreverent standup act into an eclectic résumé that includes roles in the Coen Brothers film Inside Llewyn Davis (as Janet Fung) and the animated feature Epic (as the voice of Thistle Lady).
Back in 2005, environmentalist, author and 350.org founder Bill McKibben cited the considerable political effect art has had on the AIDS crisis and asked, “Where are the books, poems, plays [and] goddamn operas [about climate change]?” Four years later, McKibben admitted that ever since he’d published his “pleading little essay” that “deep and moving images and sounds and words have been flooding out into the world.” In keeping with this still-developing trend, Bihl Haus Arts has rallied more than 50 local artists, writers, performers and environmental experts to contribute to the exhibition “HOT!” and its related programming. Curated by artist/designer Raul Castellanos and poet/activist Mobi Warren, the multi-disciplinary group show comprises works by 25 visual artists and 14 poets. On view through September 13, “HOT!” opens Friday with a reception featuring poolside performances by I Ching Gatos, Blind Alley and Ila Minori and takes shape in August with a poetry reading, an artistic recycling workshop with Castellanos, a water ceremony led by an Apache medicine woman, a panel discussion and a screening of the film Come Hell or High Water: The Battle for Turkey Creek.
SAMA’s revival of the 2004 Global Lens series continues with Indian director Adoor Gopalakrishnan’s tragic drama Shadow Kill. Set in 1941, the film concerns a hangman whose guilt over carrying out politically motivated executions leads to excessive boozing and praying to the goddess Kali.
