Trusty music video unearthed

Here's a time capsule, alright. Times photographer Brian Chilson hipped us to a VHS rip of Trusty's 1995 video for "A Modest Proposal" posted on Facebook yesterday by ex-Trusty James Brady.  It's great: all guys mugging for the camera and scampering about Monkees-style.

Beth Ditto is one of the beautiful people

"I said to my teacher, ‘I can’t be a singer because I’m not pretty enough and I’m fat.’ And she looked at me and said, “Tell that to Nell Carter, babe.’ That changed my life forever!” Beth Ditto, giving good quote in her 482nd cover story, this time in Paper Magazine, which also has a behind-the-scenes video of her cover shoot (watch to see an awesome Slick Rick-style eyepatch that didn't make the cut).

Rest well, weary traveler

It was a dark and stormy night -- hey, no joke, it was. I was on my way back from a trip to Mobile, AL. It was late (close to 9pm), I was in the hinterlands between Eudora and Lake Village, and I’d just received message that there was a storm front ahead.

  • State recommends denial of new permit for C and H Hog Farm

    The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality has recommended denial of a new permit for discharge of waste by the C and H Hog Farm in Newton County.
  • Character judgement

    Probably it's not possible to prove beyond a reasonable doubt whether or not Judge Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted then-15-year-old Christine Blasey Ford at a high school house party back in 1982. However, that's not the issue. Kavanaugh's not being charged with a crime, but with being a creep.
  • No sympathy for Sarah Huckabee Sanders

    Oh, to have the privilege to look at Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders through an objective lens. I sure can't, and I am to the point where if I hear one more progressive or even centrist Democrat claim they disagree with her policies then in the next sentence point out that she is "so good at her job" or she has taken on a "tough role," I may scream.
