Bentonville festival combines music, art and technology

BENTONVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — A new music festival is coming to Bentonville Friday, Sept. 23 through Sunday, Sept. 25, and it’s promising to change the status quo. Organizers say the FORMAT festival is about breaking away from the norm, so its combining live music with art and technology. One example of this concept is an art installment called ‘Nova Heat’, where you enter through porta potties and walk through artwork to get to the stage. Another includes what’s called ‘The Cube’, a multi-level, 4D music experience. Art is woven throughout each of the many places to listen to music and most of it is being built on-site. If you are heading to the FORMAT Festival make sure to take a look at the free shuttle rides and transportation offered by the festival since park...

Random: These Classical Art Figurines Are Animal Crossing-Level Trolling

Usually, when we report on figurines, the bits of plastic in question have something to do with games. Not so with GoodSmile's latest bouquet of lads, who are all figures from iconic statues and paintings, from the Venus de Milo to The Thinker. What's remarkable about them is the photos. Someone at GoodSmile has clearly had a whale of a time showing off the poseable figurines, because every single one features the character in question in some utterly ludicrous positions... almost like the fake art that Animal Crossing's Redd attempts to sell you. The statues are all being sold as part of GoodSmile's "Table Museum" collection, which are available on their site right here. The statues — some of which come with extra accessories, like Venus de Milo's lost arms or Botticelli's Venus opt...
