Daily Digest: Strong men in Spa City, Kris Allen debuts in November and George Clooney talks to goats

Posted By on Fri, Aug 28, 2009 at 9:49 AM


The America’s Strongest Man United States National Championships — the largest professional event of the year with more than  20 competitors — is coming to Hot Springs' Summit Arena next August 7-8. That means hulking dudes will be doing things like deadlifting cars, carrying trees and hauling boulders. Probably should go ahead and clear your calendar.

In other "American Idol" news, if any Arkansans who auditioned for "Idol" earlier this week made it far enough, they got judged by Neil Patrick Harris. [EW]

The "Men with Goats" trailer is out. George Clooney, Jeff Bridges, Ewan McGregor and Kevin Spacey about the U.S. government's efforts to create a psychic branch of soldiers. Looks like it's gonna lay the quirk on a little thick, but who knows. I'll never trust another trailer after "Inglourious Basterds." [Apple Trailers]

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis.
