Wild Nothing — Nocturne


Joshua Boydston
As clichéd as it is easy, it is nice to stop and smell the roses once in a while. Nocturne is the aural equivalent.

Pop it

OKG7 things to do

Easy Money

Cashes out with a big payoff.


Rod Lott
It’s not difficult to see what Martin Scorsese saw in Easy Money to lend his name to it as presenter to American audiences: a lot of himself. The 2010 Swedish film is a crime epic cast in the mold of Goodfellas or Casino, yet still its own thing. A smash as Snabba Cash in its native land, where it’s already spawned two sequels, the movie now arrives on DVD.

Hopper: A Journey into the American Dream — Tom Folsom


Rod Lott
When Tom Folsom terms his new nonfiction work, Hopper, as “a rebel biography,” he’s not kidding. Not only is his subject a rebel, but so is his approach. A you-are-there POV, fonts that interrupt the narrative — you’ve never read a celebrity bio quite like it, and that’s certainly befitting of its star.

OKG7 Eat: Fish dishes

OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler
It’s easy to assume that when it comes to seafood, Oklahoma is not the place to satiate that constant craving for fish dishes. However, with over 50,000 miles of shoreline along lakes and ponds that are stocked with edible species like bass, walleye and catfish in this great state, many metro eateries offer a wide variety of aquatic delicacies — from Southern-fried to elegantly served — that will surprise even the pickiest pescatarian.
