New on Rock Candy

A newly identified bird, which lived 71 million to 75 million years ago, has been named in part for Lucero, the Memphis-based band fronted by Little Rock's Ben Nichols. According to Alyssa Bell, a researcher in the Dinosaur Institute at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County quoted in Discovery News, the new species — Hollanda luceria — most closely resembles the modern Southern Screamer, a bird with a call that's been compared to a blaring trumpet. Seventy million years ago a blaring trumpet probably would've sounded like a voice ravaged by booze and cigarettes and hollering, right?
