Style: White out

posted: 09/15/2014 10:35 a.m. Discuss

It’s a look right out of a celebrity magazine: a party venue filled wall to wall with attendees dressed head to toe — or at least collar to ankle — in elegant white outfits, Helaine Williams writes in Tuesday's Style section.

Objects of inspiration

Artist John Salvest appreciates a good secondhand romance novel.

Critical Mass: Intimate venues resonate more

posted: 09/14/2014 2:24 a.m. Discuss

There is a part of me that believes that popular music ought to be experienced in a semi-feral setting, that somehow moving it into a theater or any venue with assigned seating places a governor on our potential enjoyment. This is, at best, a superstition based on experience. The best shows I remember have generally been held in small venues by performers who were more respected than famous.

On Books: Ellroy's new LA quartet gets good start in Perfidia

posted: 09/14/2014 2:23 a.m. Discuss

I confess I haven't quite finished reading Perfidia (Knopf, $28.95), Los Angeles-based crime novelist James Ellroy's latest novel and the first in what he says will be a new L.A. Quartet. It is a kind of prequel to the series of novels he wrote from 1987 to 1992 -- The Black Dahlia, The Big Nowhere, L.A. Confidential and White Jazz -- that were set in Los Angeles between 1946 and 1958.

Spin Cycle: A few yuks for our gal, dear Joan

posted: 09/14/2014 2:22 a.m. Discuss

Shortly after the news broke that funny lady Joan Rivers had died from minor surgery complications, a friend posted a Facebook comment, causing me to cringe.

The TV Column: Roosevelt cousins subjects of Ken Burns series

Quick -- name the one family that had the most powerful influence on American politics in the 20th century.

LET'S TALK: By listening, Facebooking, you can fake sports savvy, too

My biggest disappointment going to bed the last night of last weekend wasn't that my high school team lost its football game that Friday night.

TV on DVD: DVDs march on to shelves for World War I centennial

posted: 09/14/2014 2:18 a.m. Discuss

We are now more than a month into the 100th anniversary of World War I, aka "The Great War," aka "The War to End All Wars." Of course, we all know now that while it was great (great as in huge), it was hardly a war-ender. Rather, its ripple effects are still being felt.

Horoscopes by Holiday

posted: 09/14/2014 2:17 a.m. Discuss

Happy birthday. This birthday comes with mental fireworks and social excitement. Investments pay in November. You'll spend October and January on a more low-key note, getting your life organized and spending some quiet time coming up with your next big idea.

Tell Me About It: Cold fish Dad won't change

posted: 09/14/2014 2:17 a.m. Discuss

DEAR CAROLYN: My widowed-for-20-years father is having an "accidental" child with a woman my age. He is an extremely poor communicator (I got that particular gift from him), and repeatedly denied he was even dating this woman when we asked him, point-blank. I would say he has Asperger's, if that were still a thing. We are all scattered around the country and he revealed this to us when this woman, who we barely know, was already about five months pregnant.

Corn dogs, rodeos abound at the nearest county fair

posted: 09/09/2014 2:25 a.m. Discuss

County fairs have all the fun of the state fair, just on a smaller scale -- rides, games, livestock shows, beauty queens, talent shows, rodeos and blue ribbons for all manner of handiwork, from perishable baked goods and preserved vegetables to perennial quilts and fine art.

Poet Maya Angelou gets hip-hop beat on new album

posted: 09/09/2014 2:21 a.m. Discuss

NEW YORK -- Maya Angelou's iconic words and lyrics will blend with hip-hop beats for a new album called Caged Bird Songs.

The TV Column: Sons of Anarchy returns for final bloody season

posted: 09/09/2014 2:21 a.m. Discuss

I don't quite know what to make of all the emails I get asking when Sons of Anarchy is returning. There have been almost as many as those about the late, lamented Longmire.

Arkansas postcard past

posted: 09/09/2014 2:20 a.m. Discuss

Warren, 1907 The Bradley County seat's West End Public School Building boasted a bell tower. Founded in the 1820s, Warren is said to have been named after a former slave freed by Captain Hugh Bradley, for whom the county is named.
