Adios, muchacho

Let’s send off OKS veteran Stephen Carradini with some rad music vids.

And with that, I give you the song he loves more than most any in the whole, wide world:



Here’s one that buzzing across the blogosphere today: St. Vincent covering the heck out of ol’ Tom Waits. Astute fans of St. V’s (better known as Annie Clark) know this is far from the most exciting cover song she’s ever played. Also, she was born in my hometown and I have a Tulsa Driller-sized crush on her, in the interest of full disclosure:



Chapel Hill indie guitar legends Superchunk tossed a new/old video our way this week for the classic “Learn to Surf.” Let’s just say that their stage presence has neither increased nor decreased since 1998, nor have they apparently learned any new moves. How's that for consistency?



Not technically a music video, but it does feature OKC native Blake Griffin and former Sooner bulldozer Adrian Peterson, and is absolutely hilarious. That is, if you can stand Seth Meyer’s annoyingly glib grinning that introduces it:

Slam-dunk romance (not KD’s)


CFN

Gazette staff
Kate Upton has a thing for athletes. Some (Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander) better than others (Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez), but athletes, nonetheless. While those fleeting relationships never amounted to much (aside from chromosome nirvana), the swimsuit model seems to have added another trophy to her case: NBA All-Star and Oklahoma City native Blake Griffin.
