Open Line

Posted By on Fri, Nov 22, 2013 at 5:06 PM

Closing out with an actual poster of a fundraiser for Dennis "Krispy Kreme Creeper" Milligan, whose campaign has been overwhelmed lately by the silliest Arkansas political scandal in recent memory. Milligan going back to his old standby: Elvis impersonators. Also, head over to Rock Candy to hear about how Skylar White's jeep from "Breaking Bad" ended up in Fayetteville. 

Thank you, thank you very much.

  • City board discusses LGBT protection ordinance, Webb says votes there for passages

    April 14, 2015
    At their weekly meeting tonight, the Little Rock Board of Directors discussed next week's vote on an ordinance that would protect LGBT city workers from discrimination and require contractors with the city to abide by non-discrimination rules that include sexual orientation and gender identity. Asked about a potential conflict with the state's Act 137, the recently passed law which forbids municipalities from extending protections to gays and lesbians, city attorney Tom Carpenter told the board he hadn't consider the state law because he believes a federal supremacy argument will prevail. /more/
  • Stream the new Let's Talk Figures spring compilation

    March 19, 2015
    Let's Talk Figures, the prolific, slightly scary, wildly uneven and utterly inspired Fayetteville art-rock label we profiled in December, is back with a new compilation, "Spring Mix 2015." The mix features the best and worst of their roster, many of whom we've posted about here in the past, including Comfortable Brother, High Lonesome, Dividend, Devin Nu Phlo, Bob For Apples and many more. It sounds like an Miami-related acid flashback, or like diving headfirst into the molten core of the Internet. /more/

Up for discussion on the show last night: the myriad ways major poultry producers exploit chicken farmers. Also featured in the video: Arkansas Republican Rep.

  • What's not to love about the Bentonville Film Festival? Walmart.

    The Bentonville Film Festival, launched this year by actress Geena Davis and held earlier this month from May 5-9, earned a number of largely positive notices from major outlets like the Huffington Post ("At the Bentonville Film Festival, Women Are Playing in the Major Leagues"), the L.A. Times ("Bentonville Film Festival pushes diversity message from year one") and the New York Times ("Bentonville, Ark., Hosts a Film Festival Without a Movie Theater"), most of them centering on its unique and vital agenda — promoting diversity and gender equality in filmmaking — and its celebrity cache (e.g. an acting workshop taught by Robert De Niro, a softball game led by Rosie O'Donnell, etc.).
