The Yawpers

The 2019 album "Human Question" is more of a slow, deep burn than a firecracker, particularly Nate Cook's Janis Joplin-esque delivery on the new single "Carry Me."

Patrick McFarlin, "Picture It Painted — Fifty Years of McFarlin Oil"

Patrick McFarlin is an expat Arkansas artist whose travels took him west to New Mexico and California and whose talents took him farther, into pop sculpture; “manic- expressionist” painting; landscape; sometimes naive, sometimes neo-Munchean portraiture; surreal narrative. He’s back in Arkansas temporarily with a “lifetime of work,” as he puts it.

Arkansas Symphony Orchestra: "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial"

Spielberg's 1982 "E.T. the Extra Terrestrial" is so dominant in the formative lives of Gen Xers that the movie's almost never referred to by its full title, and yet somehow, time has not remembered it for the sinewy, suspenseful thing that it is. "E.T." is rife with family dysfunction, gut-rattling alien noises and menacing government scientists in astronaut-militia gear and yet somehow, still gets unjustly relegated to the realm of "heartwarming family flicks," filed infuriatingly next to drivel like "Wizards of Waverly Place."
