Under the sea

I promise not to write in all ‘The Little Mermaid’ quotes. Take it from me.


Food and Drink Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
I know a few people who refuse to eat anything that “swims.” I say, they’re missing out. We may be landlocked, but it’s not all fried catfish showing up on the plate. Head to local fishmongers (what a great title, right?) and restaurants for all the goodies hanging out — and yes, swimming — under those waves.

Clifton Adcock
A simple headline appeared the morning of Sept. 15 on the NewsOK website. The four words confirmed what some in the journalism world had been whispering about since June: “OPUBCO to be sold.”

VOTD: Watch Roger Waters on Jimmy Fallon

Help celebrate Pink Floyd Week on the late-night show!

It’s not exactly super-often that any founding members of one of history’s most seminal bands really say much in public, so it was very cool to see Mr. Waters show up Tuesday on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” Here’s a great little nugget from his interview with Fallon:

“One of the tutors in our first year was a man called Mike Leonard … and he had a Volkswagen van and a Farfisa organ, so we let him be in the band.”



Waters went on to play the gritty, organ-haunted song “In the Flesh” off “The Wall” alongside the Foo Fighters. Dude really seemed to get a bang out of it.



Waters also had compliments for The Shins singer James Mercer and his band’s gentle, true-to-form take on “Breathe” from “Dark Side of the Moon.” “What a great singer that kid is,” he said. Watch the band’s Monday-night appearance:



MGMT, which played Fallon last night, probably owe more to the legendary English psychedelics more than any other band on the bill for this week. Watch its version of plunky, 1960s super-spy-themed "Lucifer Sam." Also, they're dressed like fisherman.



Watch tonight for Dierks Bentley’s cover of “Wish You Were Here” and Pearl Jam playing “Mother.” Thanks, Jimmy!

juggalo

Jugg of whine

No ‘bigatory’ in ‘American Juggalo,’ just awesomeness.

En route back to Oklahoma City from Austin, Texas, this weekend, I listened to a lot of episodes of the “Doug Loves Movies” podcast that had been piling up on my iPhone. On one, host Doug Benson’s guests included two music podcasters who came armed with lists of their favorite “rockumentaries.” Among their tops were “The Kids Are Alright,” “Some Kind of Monster” and “Dig!”

I’d like to think if only they’d appeared several weeks later, they would’ve had “American Juggalo” on their list. Oh, if only!

Directed by Sean Dunne, this 22-minute nugget could be two hours and 22 minutes, and I’d still be riveted to every minute. Armed with two Sony EX3 cameras, Dunne attended the Gathering of the Juggalos, the annual festival held by Insane Clown Posse, either the most beloved or reviled musical act of our generation. He asked questions; he got answers.

Boy, did he ever get answers. NSFW alert: Very few do not use the word “fuck” in some form or fashion. (Example: “I’m fucked up on E and vodka.”)

The results are fascinating, and speak for themselves ...



See? —Rod Lott
