Besser talks Hogs, Jurado does "Arkansas," WATF tackles U2

Posted By on Wed, Jun 9, 2010 at 12:08 PM


Upright Citizen, Arkansan and rabid Hogs fan, Matt Besser (above), talks—optimistically—to Arkansas Expats about Bobby "BMFP" Petrino, our gang of wide receivers and that hilarious Ryan Mallett mug shot.

Seattle singer-songwriter Damien Jurado premieres the video for his new single, "Arkansas," on Pitchfork TV. It's a pretty morbid affair that hits no fewer than three high points of state cliche: Pabst tall boys, check; a rifle, check; a slack-jawed yokel with eyes glazed like a Shipley donut, supa check.

We Are the Fallen do an acoustic take of U2's "With or Without You" for Billboard.
