Sustainable learning

The SixTwelve project aims to turn community into a renewable resource.


Features

Louis Fowler
The large, dilapidated structure at N.W. 29th and N. Lee, in the heart of the Paseo, was only days away from demolition when it was rescued by Amy Young and James Varnum. In 2010, the pair bought the property, an eight-plex apartment in its former life, with the idea of turning it into a center of community living. Hence, they became the brains behind Project SixTwelve  — a nonprofit named for the street address, 612 N.W. 29th, natch.

The Big Boss / Fist of Fury / The Way of the Dragon / Game of Death

Bruce is loose ... again!


Action

Rod Lott
Let us now praise a giant of action cinema: Bruce Lee. It seems like a good time, given Shout! Factory’s reissuing of four of the man’s marital-arts titles via a pair of double-feature DVDs: one with 1971’s The Big Boss and 1972’s Fist of Fury, the other with 1972’s The Way of the Dragon and 1978’s partly posthumous Game of Death. In total, that’s three-point-two-five good movies.

‘Land’ ho!

Look, up in the sky! It’s local artist Rick Sinnett, working on ‘This Land,’ a mural adorning the outside of Rocktown Climbing Gym.


Visual Arts

Liz Blood

Drive Interstate 40 just south of Bricktown, and you might see artist Rick Sinnett. He’s the one swinging from a rope anchored to the top of Rocktown Climbing Gym, wrangling a 5-gallon bucket of paint as he works on his latest mural, This Land.

Police Story / Police Story 2

Cop a feel.


Action

Rod Lott
Like many, my first exposure to Jackie Chan was through 1981’s The Cannonball Run. That doesn’t count.
