Some Dick is going to trash a car

And you're invited!

Wanna be in a music video? Then director Richard Farmer and singer/songwriter Luke Dick, both Okie vets, sure could use you and your aggression. They’re be shooting a vid for Dick’s new song, “Who Am I,” on Sept. 10 in the Film Exchange District.

The concept: beating the crap out of an automobile.

“I’ve always wanted to capture the sledgehammer tradition in a video in some sensational fashion, especially for such a bombastic tune,” said Dick in a press release. “Over dinner, I was telling Oklahoma entrepreneur Chip Fudge about the idea of a video with apocalyptic Okies bashing a car. Being such an ol’ gear head, he got a big smile on his face and said, ‘I want to be a part of that! What better place than the Film Exchange for a film event?’”

Sound like a plan? Here’s the deal:
• Meet at 5:30 p.m. in the parking lot behind Joey’s Pizza, IAO Gallery and the Hart Building, in the 700 block of West Sheridan.
• Donate $5 at the gate, benefiting Bikers Against Child Abuse.
• Be 18 or older.
• Dress in a letter jacket or a prom dress, and in skeleton makeup.
• Read that last one again; you weren’t hallucinating.
• Don’t worry — you’re in good hands. Farmer directed Gnarley Barkley’s “Run” video, after all.
• And until then, enjoy this clip of Dick covering Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi.” Hey, it worked for that kid in Edmond. —Rod Lott

Soak the rich


Letters to the Editor

D.W. Tiffee
I got a good chuckle at Mike Brake frantically waving the crying towel for rich Americans (Letters, “Batchelder logic,” Sept. 14, Gazette). What is the relevance that the top 1 percent pay 40 percent of income taxes given that they constitute just half of all federal revenues?

Restaurant Reviews

Annie Okie’s Runway Cafe

5915 Phillip J. Rhoads Ave.

What worked: Breakfast is strong, especially the omelets.

What needs work: The burger’s pretty boring, and the dinners seem like they’re just sandwiches without the bread.

Tips: Sit in the atrium if you want to watch the planes.

Drinkin’ and gunnin’


CFN

Gazette staff
Because some of Oklahoma’s finest contributions to the advancement of human civilization have started with the words, “Hold my beer and watch this,” an Oklahoma City gun range has taken the steps necessary to be the first gun range to serve liquor by the drink.
