Diggin’ it


Gazette staff
On the same afternoon CFN learned that the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook were among the 20 finalists for the 2012 U.S. Olympic men’s basketball team, we found out about another local man headed to competition — this one, a tad different.

Raquel Welch never quite landed on the A list, but not for a lack of trying. It's just that so many of her projects (Bedazzled, One Million Years B.C., Fathom, Myra Breckinridge, et al.) required little more of her than her assets. At least she shakes those with the best of them as a go-go girl on the go — and on the run — in 1969's Flareup, fresh from the MOD ovens of Warner Archive.

Friends in high places


Gazette staff
Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese is known for some of cinema’s all-time finest tough-guy films — Goodfellas, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull — so when he ventures outside his crime-minded comfort zone, it raises eyebrows. (And have you seen his eyebrows?) News of him potentially directing a television special starring Yukon’s favorite son Garth Brooks would have CFN doing just that, but we got our brows waxed and plucked so thin, they barely move. Anyhow, according to The Las Vegas Sun, Brooks just wrapped up a three-year stint performing in Sin City, and real-estate mogul Steve Wynn says Marty “said he’d love to” shoot it for all of America’s eyeballs.

Not-so-modest proposal


Gazette staff
Popping the question can be a daunting task for any would-be spouse, especially in the wake of unreasonably high expectations set by romantic comedies and those goofballs who propose on the Jumbotron at sporting events. But David Tester, a 28-year-old OKC videographer, was up to the challenge, and even went a tad further than your run-of-the-mill proposal via flash mob.
