A & E news, May 22 

Here's a list of the award winners from last weekend's second annual Little Rock Film Festival: For Narrative Feature, “The Promotion.” For Documentary Feature, “Behind Forgotten Eyes.” For Documentary Short, “Pilgrimage.” For Narrative Short, “The Adventure.” For the Arkansas Music Video Award, Deluxe36 and the Moving Front for “Like Zombies.” And for the inaugural Charles B. Pierce Award for Arkansas Film, “War Eagle, Arkansas.”

 

Easy Street Piano Bar and Cabaret Room, recently rumored to be closing, trucks along with a new regular DJ series, featuring Andrew Morgan, the man behind the dance parties in the basement at the Living Room (the halcyon days of Little Rock dance parties). Morgan, under the name Ettiem, will spin “funk, soul, electro, new shit, Afrobeat, reggae, weirdo disco” along with Tel Aviv drummer Kyle Carpenter on Fridays beginning at 9 p.m. in the cabaret room. The series kicks off this Friday. No cover charge.

 

At the show, Morgan says, he'll also have details of the debut show by his new band, Eclipse Glasses, which he describes as an amalgamation of all those genres listed above. The band includes vets of dozens of great local bands: Zach Reeves, Colin Miles, Kyle Carpenter, Lorenza Harrington and Morgan.

 

Mark your calendars, local blues fans. On Saturday, May 31, Blues Patrol, the popular local act from the '80s, reunites at Cornerstone Pub to celebrate the release of “We Walked the Streets Like Giants,” a DVD that tells the band's story. Former Circuit Judge David Bogard put together the film, a 10-minute snippet of which will screen at the event. Longtime blues jam organizer Jeff Weeden hosts. A jam, featuring other local musicians, precedes and follows the Blues Patrol's performance. The show starts at 8 p.m.

 

Breathe easy, fans of zany Fort Smith cartoonist Brad Neely. The recent news that Superdeluxe.com will soon “fold into” adultswim.com does not signal the end of Neely's shorts. Reached by e-mail, Neely confirmed that “China, IL,” his latest four-part miniseries, will continue to screen on Adult Swim TV and be hosted on Superdelux. Some 25 of his videos will still likely appear on the website. Neely, who's written for “South Park,” also reports that he's gearing for more TV work, but had no firm details to report.

  • Trump unfit

    Even as an oligarch, President Trump turns out to be breathtakingly incompetent. Is there any reason to suppose he's even loyal to the United States? Does he even understand the concept? Trump is loyal to Trump, and to his absurdly swollen ego. Nothing and nobody else.
  • You want tort reform? Try this.

    The nursing home industry and the chamber of commerce finally defeated the trial lawyers in the 2017 legislature. The Republican-dominated body approved a constitutional amendment for voters in 2018 that they'll depict as close to motherhood in goodness.
  • Goodbye, Mr. Trump

    It is hard to escape the feeling that the fortunes of President Trump and the country took a decisive, and for Trump a fatal, turn May 9-10, when the president fired the director of the FBI over its investigation of Russian efforts to swing the presidential election to him and the very next day shared top-secret intelligence with Russian officials in an Oval Office meeting closed except to a Kremlin press aide toting electronic gear to capture the intimate session for Russians but not Americans.
  • Raw feelings in the Arkansas Justice Building over workload, pay

    Strained relations between the Arkansas Supreme Court and the Arkansas Court of Appeals broke into public view this week. I expect more to come.
