*“I want to do a USO tour. I want Beth Ditto to be my Marilyn Monroe, and have Iggy Pop wrestle with Bin Laden look-alikes. I want to do the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell, we’re going to hell’ tour. It would be great.” John Waters via Out.

*Harry Thomason and Linda Bloodworth-Thomason are back on TV after getting close with "12 Miles of Bad Road." This time with a half-hour comedy for USA. Scripted by Linda and exec-produced by the couple, "Driven" follows an out-of-work man in Austin, Texas who starts a limo business, according to Variety. Comedian Ron "Tater" White stars. No word yet on when it'll debut.

*One quarter-Arkansas-based country band Little Big Town has a new video. As CMT points out, it's pretty much the country version of "Single Ladies," which means lines like this: "No more lovin' like crazy and no more chicken and gravy."

    One of the booths at this week's Ark-La-Tex Medical Cannabis Expo was hosted by the Arkansas Hemp Association, a trade group founded to promote and expand non-intoxicating industrial hemp as an agricultural crop in the state. AHA Vice President Jeremy Fisher said the first licenses to grow experimental plots of hemp in the state should be issued by the Arkansas State Plant Board next spring.
  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
