New DD service coming to Little Rock 

Anyone responsible enough to have ever felt the frustration of realizing you're probably too drunk to safely drive home will appreciate this: A new company is coming to Little Rock that will offer cheap chauffeur and take-home services for those stuck out after having too much to drink. Still better: They'll bring your car home, too. Better still: They're hiring!

According to a press release, BeMyDD is a chain with outlets in 42 cities. The company offers two forms of drunk-transpo: a personal driver service for $15 per hour, and a pickup service for $25 (plus mileage) in which two drivers are dispatched, one to take your drunk ass home, and another to follow in your car so it doesn't get stripped and melted for scrap metal in the middle of the night by opportunistic thieves. They also plan to offer medical, business, and elder transport.

The company is currently looking to hire 100 part-time drivers for the new office they plan to start in central Arkansas. Applicants have to pass a background check and have a valid license. According to the BeMyDD website, employees will be able to set their own schedule, pick the zip codes they're willing to drive to, and will work "professionally dressed" (fingers crossed for bunny suits, which will make the ride home extra entertaining). The company will be conducting interviews at the end of February. You can apply at www.bemydd.com.

Lots better than a ride from the boys in blue. Cheaper, too.

Psych of the South label honcho and garage rock scholar Harold Ott sent word to the Times that one of the songs featured on Lost Souls Vol. 1 was included in the soundtrack to Billy Bob Thornton's latest film, the Vietnam-era ensemble comedy/family drama "Jayne Mansfield's Car."

The tune is a two-minute nugget of dark, folk-based psych from 1967 titled "LSD." It was recorded for the Zay Dee label by the North Little Rock band The Villagers, who changed their name to Suspension of Belief for the recording, according to Psych of the South.

Thornton's film just debuted at the Berlin International Film Festival, though no U.S. release date has been set so far.

    Out here in flyover country, you can't hardly go by the feed store without running into a reporter doing one of those Wisdom of the Heartland stories.
  • Not Whitewater

    Just think: If Democrats had turned out 78,000 more votes in three states in November, people could be reveling today in the prospect of impeaching and convicting President Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump, as some Republican lawmakers had promised to try to do if she won.
