Off-script

Among other projects, OKC Improv collaborates with Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park with ‘Fortune’s Fools,’ a Shakespearean comedy minus the Shakespeare.

Yeah. This is awesome. Way to go, Thunder. Way to go, OKC.

Also, it’s Music Video Monday.

Rapper Jabee reps the Thunder, which only makes me more excited for Game 4 tonight. Also getting a shout-out: the biblical man Enoch. Didn’t see that one comin’:



Bizarre patrons of music are becoming increasingly common (National Geographic has a record label?!), but Lipton Iced Tea and Pandora teaming up for a video series that features artist interviews is still a little bit of a head-scratcher.
