  • SPACE AGE PIMP: Memphis' 8ball.

A&E News


New on Rock Candy


Read a Q&A with Memphis rap legend 8ball on representing the Memphis underground, his and his partner MJG's upcoming show at Revolution and what “space age pimpin'” really means.


A 20-minute promo of “Bruno,” Sacha Baron Cohen's latest prank-comedy, screened at the SXSW Fantastic Fest last weekend. It like at least one of last summer's fake cage fights in Texarkana and Fort Smith made the cut.

Maybe you remember the set-up: Billed as “Blue Collar Brawlin'” with “hot chicks, cold beer and hardcore fights,” the events instead delivered fights that turn into hardcore dude-on-dude make-out sessions.

We've got the full play-by-play online.

The full version of “Bruno” is slated to be released on July 10.


Get the lowdown on the Rep's recently announced 2009-2010 season. It features “Always ... Patsy Cline” (Sept. 11-Oct.4), the Second City Touring Company (Oct. 7-18), “Folly Holidays” (Nov. 5-14), “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” (Dec. 4-Jan. 3),  “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” (Feb. 5-Feb. 21), “Glorious” (March 12-28),  “Frost/Nixon” (April 16 to May 2) and “Ragtime” (May 28 to June 27).

  • Another Jesus

    If you follow the logic of Jason Rapert and his supporters, God is very pleased so many have donated money to rebuild a giant stone slab with some rules on it. A few minutes on Rapert's Facebook page (if he hasn't blocked you yet) also shows his supporters believe that Jesus wants us to lock up more people in prison, close our borders to those in need and let poor Americans fend for themselves for food and health care.
