Five things to anticipate in 2010 

LIL WAYNE
  • LIL WAYNE

1. Lil Wayne at Verizon. After canceling a scheduled March gig at Verizon due to “scheduling conflicts,” Wayne's back on the books at Verizon. This time for a Saturday, Jan. 9, date, likely with Drake and the rest of the Young Money crew in tow. Even though it'll undoubtedly be marred by too much Auto Tune and Wayne “showing off” his guitar skills, we can't wait.

2. Arkansas-connected films. Lots of promise here. Glenwood native Clark Duke looks poised to own the stoner demographic with roles in the comic-adaptation “Kick Ass” and a film that pretty much sells itself, “Hot Tub Time Machine.” In October, David Gordon Green follows up “Pineapple Express” with the medieval comedy “Your Highness.” And late in the year, the Coens hope to release their adaptation of Charles Portis' “True Grit.”

3. Local music. The long-in-the-works Moving Front album features lots of guests and unexpected instruments (horns!) and should see the light of day in the not-too-distant future on Max. The label also has the solo debut from Mulehead/Kyoto Boom guitarist Dave Raymond coming out early next year. And Raymond's Kyoto Boom mate Scott Cook should make his national solo debut, too. Plus, 607 promises to return to a quarterly release schedule in 2010.

4. Korto, for-sale. The Arkansas fashion maven's jewelry line hits Dillard's in February. She's also got a handbag line, developed in partnership with Tre Vero, scheduled to be in the national retail store sometime next year.

5. Tost on Cash. There's a chance it may not happen until 2011, but publication of Tony Tost's 33 1/3 book on Johnny Cash's “American Recordings” is on the horizon. It'll be essential reading.

  • Football for UA Little Rock

    Andrew Rogerson, the new chancellor at UA Little Rock, has decided to study the cost of starting a major college football team on campus (plus a marching band). Technically, it would be a revival of football, dropped more than 60 years ago when the school was a junior college.
  • Turn to baseball

    When the world threatens to get you down, there is always baseball — an absorbing refuge, an alternate reality entirely unto itself.
  • 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.
  • 'Cemetery angel' Ruth Coker Burks featured in new short film

    Ruth Coker Burks, the AIDS caregiver and activist memorably profiled by David Koon as the cemetery angel in Arkansas Times in 2015, is now the subject of a short film made by actress Rose McGowan.
