'True Grit' being remade as a porno

You know, it's just a damn shame when someone takes something that you love and turns it into a porno. But that's exactly what's happening to "True Grit."

And they didn't even bother to come up with a clever porn-pun variation on the title. It's just called "True Grit XXX," which could very well lead confused video store customers to wonder how they missed the other 28 sequels chronicling the further adventures of Marshal Cogburn and Mattie Ross.

But don't worry, director Jack the Zipper assures us this will be a real classy affair, with sets and acting and stuff.

"We're going to be out in the open Plains to capture all the grandeur," Zipper told the website XBiz. "We're going to be on horseback. We're going to have authentic weapons from the 1800s. We have re-enactor clubs joining in. We're going to have as much detail as we can possibly accomplish."

Overdrive, the digital lending system the Central Arkansas Library System and Laman Library both use, now supports Kindle Books.

John Oates, the half of Hall & Oates that's not Hall, is coming to the UARK Bowl in Fayetteville on Nov. 3. Tickets are available for $20 at starrsguitars.com.

The Arkansas State Fair, Oct. 14-23, is just around the corner. After you've finished stuffing yourself with fried everything and you've spent a fortune to win your sweetheart a neon-orange stuffed gorilla and you're finally tired of the Tilt-a-Whirl, there's some live music. All shows are free with regular paid admission to the fair.

Here are some of the highlights:

• 8:15 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14: Kenny Wayne Shepherd plugs in and channels SRV the way only he can.

• 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 16: You'll get full up on Southern rock, when Confederate Railroad opens up for The Marshall Tucker Band.

• 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 19: The Monsters of Classic Rock melt your mullet off.

• 8:15 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20: Country music legend and Grammy winner Travis Tritt takes the stage.

• 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21: Classic rock erupts, as Foghat and Jefferson Starship take flight.
