Even though the NFL is in a lockout, former Cowboy star Dez Bryant is still making headlines. Last week, CFN readers learned of the wide receiver’s ejection from an upscale Dallas mall for allegedly descending dungarees (hence the über-inquisitive headline, “Did Dez’s drawers droop?”).
Before ‘Dallas,’ Patrick Duffy made a splash as a waterlogged wonder.

Being all of 6 years old during its brief run on the tube, I have only
vague memories of “Man from Atlantis,” Patrick Duffy’s pre-“Dallas” TV
series that has become a sci-fi cult hit ever since.
‘Creep’ through these photos of Other Lives opening for Radiohead in Dallas last night.
Three hours’ drive to Dallas couldn’t deter a horde of Oklahomans from seeing the state’s most recently successful band play one of the biggest stages of its career last night.
Yes, Other Lives strolled through Dallas on tour with Radiohead, and the result was nothing short of wonderful. Hearing Thom Yorke praise the Stillwater group at the end of his band’s two-hours-plus set seemed like a pretty big victory for Oklahoma.
Check out our photos of Other Lives, and then Radiohead’s set list — which included some odd surprises — below. I’d take the time to write about it, but I’m still a little bit too much in awe from the whole experience to do it justice.
To put it short, however, the evening was light on frenetic Jonny Greenwood guitar moments (I would’ve sacrificed my firstborn for “Electioneering”), and heavy on intricate, deep-groove rhythmics, as Radiohead played heavily from The King of Limbs.
Radiohead set list “Bloom” “Little by Little” “Weird Fishes/Arpeggi” “Morning Mr. Magpie” “The Gloaming” “The Daily Mail” “Pyramid Song” “The Amazing Sounds of Orgy” (note: this song failed to inspire any orgy-like behavior amongst the crowd) “Karma Police” “15 Step” “Staircase” “Identikit” “Lotus Flower” “There There” “Feral” “Idioteque” encore break “Separator” “Climbing Up the Walls” “Bodysnatchers” “Everything in Its Right Place” encore break “Give Up the Ghost” (just Yorke and Greenwood) “Skirting on the Surface” “Reckoner” “Paranoid Android”
Pitchfork reports that last night was the band’s live debut of “The Amazing Sounds of Orgy” and “Skirting on the Surface.” Related: Radiohead has an impressive army of nerd-tastic, note-scribbling followers out there.
