The top 10 Arkansas albums of 2015 

Our picks.

Over the years our system for determining the top Arkansas albums of the year has grown increasingly rigid, exacting and scientifically unassailable. We are tireless. We take voluminous notes, peruse our weekly blog posts, email archives, diary entries. We solicit the opinions of our friends, relatives, acquaintances, enemies. We consult experts and paste up flyers. We traverse the state in vans, knocking on doors and exploring dusty attics. We sit on barstools late into the night, eavesdropping on the conversations of strangers. We pay attention to the stars, to the rumblings of our guts. We grow arrogant, we are humbled, we come only to listen and to learn. We go to concerts, take photographs, print them out and then draw them out of hats. We lay awake at night wearing headphones. We hire interns. We vote. We ask our parents. We don't know. Here's a list:

  • 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.
