Comic William Lee Martin says the Fine Tex-Mex Comedy Tour that he and fellow comedian Alex Reymundo have put together operates much like Tex-Mex cuisine: People like the result even if — or maybe because — culinary lines were blurred in the process.

Over the years, I’ve written about efforts by art museums around the country to get more people in the door. Some tactics I think are more appropriate than others: In general, I approve of those that take images of art to people outside the museums hoping to pique their curiosity as to what they might encounter inside.

Western artists Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell did much to shape the public’s imagination of the American West through their illustrations, paintings and sculpture, but they shouldn’t be seen as mirror images, said Western art scholar B. Byron Price.

It hasn’t always been easy to be Foster the People. Making sophisticated pop with thoughtful lyrics in danceable, candy-coated hooks is like being a character actor trapped in a leading man’s body. If that’s the case, then Foster the People resemble Brad Pitt on their third studio album.

“Wish Upon” revives the Orientalist mysticism at the heart of the teen-friendly “Gremlins”— an enigmatic Asian artifact leads to mayhem and murder — but it’s nowhere as entertaining as the 1984 horror classic.

Zack Danielson stands in front of a video monitor at Waco video gaming center Lansharx Gaming, feet braced apart and headset over his eyes. He’s holding what appears to be a large, white plastic “D” with a glowing red bulb at its tip, pointing to the monitor screen.

One thing is certain: Culture has not been lacking in takes on Spider-Man for the past 15 years. First there was Tobey Maguire, who under the direction of Sam Raimi for three films ushered in the modern superhero era, and then there was Andrew Garfield whose two films with Marc Webb were immediately forgettable. And now, like all obedient franchises, they’re trying to start all over again, this time with the much more age-appropriate Tom Holland in “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”

Silver is normally the metal of choice for a 25th wedding anniversary, but forgive Waco pastor Nika Davis and his wife, Beverly, for choosing gold — Grammy Award gold — for their choice of celebration.

One day last week, I was listening to some music by an American composer named Charles Ives. Born in Connecticut in 1874 — the son of a bandleader in the American Civil War — Ives isn’t widely known among the general population, but he’s often mentioned as one of the few American orchestral composers who ranks alongside Europeans. He wrote his remarkable Second Symphony between 1897 and 1902, but it wasn’t performed until 1952.

Salma Hayek is virtually unrecognizable in “Beatriz at Dinner,” a sad-eyed parable in which she plays a massage therapist and healer in Southern California whose car breaks down at the home of a wealthy client, pushing her into an Alice-like plunge through the looking glass of race and class, friendship and professionalism, and liberal earnestness and hypocrisy.

Waco’s Fourth on the Brazos community celebration marks its third year on Tuesday at Touchdown Alley near Baylor University’s McLane Stadium and organizers are hoping the third time’s a charm in some areas thanks to changes in fireworks, parking and river conditions.

In November 1937, Orson Welles and partner John Houseman staged a production of Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” at the Mercury Theater on Broadway in New York City. They decided not to clothe the actors in traditional togas, but to use contemporary dress that evoked the style of fascist Italy.

Waco film fans who’ve itched to see the richer visuals and sound of an IMAX presentation no longer have to drive to Temple’s Premiere Cinema for the nearest screen. As some filmgoers to AMC Classic Galaxy 16 started discovering late last month, that multiplex now has an IMAX screen. The theater, formerly known as Starplex Galaxy 16, now officially is AMC Classic Galaxy 16.

Practicing an instrument is solitary business. There’s just no way around it. To get a piece of music right takes an enormous amount of time with just the player and the instrument. (Writing is often this way as well, marked by solitary work that, as Shelby Foote once said, is best done alone at a table drawn up in front of a blank wall.)
