How to Seduce a Virgin

Not an instructional video — sorry, kiddos.


Drama

Rod Lott
One need not wait long for the really weird to rear its head in a Jess Franco flick. In the case of 1974's How to Seduce a Virgin, it's all of four minutes, when Martine flashes back to that time she cut off her lover's manhood with a straight razor — y'know, the good ol' days.

Ghost Team One

A spirited spoof.


Comedy

Rod Lott
With this Halloween season being the first without a new chapter in the Paranormal Activity series, perhaps a Paranormal Activity spoof is the next best thing. There's no shortage of them, but of the roughly half-dozen I've seen, Ghost Team One is the only one worth watching.

The art knight rises

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s the Istvan Gallery’s latest exhibition celebrating comic books!


Visual Arts

Louis Fowler
Hot on the well-pixelated heels of its last exhibition, the video game-themed Art of Bits/Bits of Art, the Istvan Gallery once again finds itself in geeky territory with its latest art show, The Art of the Comic Book. For gallery owner and curator Stephen Kovash, who learned to draw from comic books, it’s a chance to give Oklahoma City a new perspective on what has long been considered low-brow art by outsiders.

Now it’s Blake Shelton’s turn


CFN

Gazette staff
Those loony folks at Westboro Baptist Church don’t know when to shut up. Last month, it was Oklahoma City-slash- Northwest Classen grad-slash-country star Vince Gill they were harassing. Now, they’ve gotten under Sooner country star Blake Shelton’s skin.

Ok, this one isn’t funny


CFN

Gazette staff
Again, our state ranks near last in a report. Surprised? No. Angry? Only at ourselves. The Center for American Progress rated states based on 36 different factors that included economics, leadership and health in its report The State of Women in America. Oklahoma was No. 48th and received a grade of “F,” above Louisiana and Utah.

Hey, y’all, the Flaming lips are still weird


CFN

Gazette staff
It has been too long since The Flaming Lips made some weird toys, right? Oklahoma City resident and frontman Wayne Coyne posted one in particular on his Instagram — which, by the way, is new. Yep, new. His old one was deleted for policy violations (read as: too, too many nudie pics). You can follow him at @wayneflaminglip.
