Hop, skip and a jump

Nobunny lured to OKC in an unusual way


Music

Rod Lott
Local Nobunny fan Clint McEwen noticed something wasn’t right when the Oakland, Calif.-based act’s winter tour dates were posted on Twitter recently: no Oklahoma City stop. This irked him, because he had seen Nobunny play an “incredible” show at The Conservatory, 8911 N.

Munn ho!: Fifth in a series

Even non-newsworthy weeks are newsworthy

Gazette staff
’Twas a quiet week on the Internet for former Oklahoman turned actress/ model/geek icon Olivia Munn. But at least the holiday gave her the chance to share her ideal Valentine’s Day with OpposingViews.

Counting Mommas

A local group-buying site runs a weeklong event

 I may not be a mom (I don’t quite think people accept tabbies Ron and Charlie as my kids, which greatly upsets them, by the way), but I can appreciate MommaCounts, a locally based group-buying site that has a really cool twist: It picks a different nonprofit each month to which to contribute a percentage of its profits. How cool, right?

For its April beneficiary, Hearts for Hearing, MommaCounts is running a “Spring Into Savings” online event all this week. On top of the regular percentage that will go to the Oklahoma City nonprofit, MommaCounts will run contests and feature prizes on its social-media sites (like Twitter and Facebook) to support and raise awareness of Hearts for Hearing.

All very cool. Be sure to check it out this week.

Bill Clinton once said never pick a fight with people who buy ink by the barrel, but Chicken-Fried News isn’t sure if that quote was uttered before the Internet was invented.

In Oklahoma and across the nation, student-athletes are being reprimanded for abusing team policy and common sense in fewer than 140 characters. Last fall, Sooner wide receiver Jaz Reynolds was suspended from the team for insensitive tweets following the University of Texas shooting.
