A March 10 article in the city’s daily newspaper detailing Sens. Tom Coburn and Jim Inhofe slamming the tax credits given for ethanol production to be used in gasoline (“Coburn wants to cut tax breaks on ethanol”) was predictable.

Despite the name, Midnight Streak runners will remain fully clothed (sorry, voyeurs) and take off before the witching hour.

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

One race, one day

Serious runners go the distance in a local race.

Some say there are not enough hours in the day. For ultra-runners, 24 hours is all they need — to complete a race.

In most cases, drinking beer while running is ill-advised. Exception: Saturday’s second annual McNellie’s Pub Run, starting 11:30 a.m. at the Midtown hot spot, 1100 Classen Drive. In addition to traditional race and fun-run options, the Guinness Challenge adds a trio of 12-ounce pints to a four-mile course. Hic! Registration is $15-$45. Visit

If you ask us, getting coated with rainbow powder while running a 5K is a long-overdue idea. Finally, dreams become reality, when Color Me Rad bursts into vibrancy at 9 a.m. Saturday at State Fair Park, 333 Gordon Cooper. Runners get plastered with non-toxic colored corn starch every five minutes. Visit
