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).

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
