A & E news, Aug. 28 

Word around the Little Rock fashion community is that “Project Runway” contestant and Mabelvale resident Korto Momolu has been steadily buying fabric in recent weeks, leading to speculation that she's readying for Fashion Week in New York, Sept. 5-12, where the reality show's final three contestants face off. Or Momolu could simply be readying a new collection for the fashion show at Hillcrest HarvestFest, in which she's committed to participating.

 

Downtown venue Revolution has updated its website, rumbarevolution.com, to add an impressive upcoming slate. Here's the cream of the crop: Leon Russell on Sept. 21, Paul Thorn on Sept. 25, Junior Brown on Oct. 19 and Wolf Parade on Nov. 16.

 

Public Enemy co-founder and leader Chuck D will speak at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 25, at Robinson Center Music Hall as part of the Clinton School of Public Service lecture series. The bio the school released describes him as “a prominent supporter of music on the Internet” and the founder of rapstation.com, “a site dedicated to empowering rap artists with the knowledge to turn their craft into a viable living,” so we're guessing the focus is going to tilt toward digital media.

 

Coming Oct. 14 on Compadre Records, “Johnny Cash Remixed,” an album that pairs 20 Sun-era Cash tracks — like “Get Rhythm,” “Big River” and “I Walk the Line” — with producers from around the world. Johnny and June's son John Carter Cash is producing with Snoop Dogg and Beyonce's dad. Sample the first leaked single, “Sugartime,” a remix by Kennedy, described in promo material as “a cornerstone in the new UK music movement called DirtyPop.” Go to Rock Candy to hear the track.

 

Exciting news out of Conway: Dan Penn, the architect of some of the greatest soul songs of all time, will play a free show at Hendrix's Cabe Theater on Tuesday, Sept. 16. Known for penning songs like “Do Right Woman Do Right Man,” “I'm Your Puppet” and “The Dark End of the Street,” Penn comes to Arkansas for the first time as a performer. Bobby Emmons, who played in the original Bill Black Combo as a teen-ager and performed as part of the band that supported Elvis during his '68 comeback special, will accompany on keyboard. Visit Rock Candy to stream Penn staples.

The conference will discuss deploying existing technologies to increase access to food, water, energy, clean environment, and medical care.

  • Rapert compares Bill Clinton to Orval Faubus

    Sen. Jason Rapert (R-Conway)  was on "Capitol View" on KARK, Channel 4, this morning, and among other things that will likely inspire you to yell at your computer screen, he said he expects someone in the legislature to file a bill to do ... something about changing the name of the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport.
  • Fake news

    So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.
  • Reality TV prez

    There is almost nothing real about "reality TV." All but the dullest viewers understand that the dramatic twists and turns on shows like "The Bachelor" or "Celebrity Apprentice" are scripted in advance. More or less like professional wrestling, Donald Trump's previous claim to fame.
