Hand job

Word to the wise if you plan on traveling to Australia anytime soon with a bag full of novelties: Keep your eyes on your giant stage props. The Flaming Lips learned that the hard way last week when someone swiped the supersized laser hands favored by front man Wayne Coyne.

Wake in Fright

G'day, mate? Hardly!


Rod Lott
From 1971, Wake in Fright is a lost film recently and literally rescued from near-oblivion. While I can’t say I was familiar with it before its Drafthouse Films re-release, I’m glad it was saved. To have lost a work this good would have been a blow.

Responsible gun control

Letters to the Editor

Jackie Gaston
Increasing access to guns as the solution of gun violence makes as much sense as doubling up on doughnuts to lose weight. Not gonna happen. Why not try responsible gun control including a bipartisan deal with state and local governments to buy back semiautomatic weapons? That’s what Australia did in 1996 after a gunman killed 35 tourists and wounded 23 more. Their buyback covered about one-fifth of all firearms in Australia, including more than 600,000 semiautomatic shotguns and rifles.

Wish You Were Here

Why I'll never go to Cambodia


Rod Lott
Bearing an ironic title, the Australian film Wish You Were Here tells the story of four people who vacation together to Cambodia (of all places), yet only three return home. Jeremy (Antony Starr, TV's Banshee) goes missing after an Ecstasy-fueled party; foul play is feared, although his passport and bank account remain untouched.

Oklahoma’s public defenders


Robin Meyers
I am not talking about those brave, idealistic, underpaid lawyers who work to protect the last and the least, but KFOR, KOCO, KWTV and other local media outlets whose job it has become to defend the honor and reputation of our state when it is under attack by “foreigners” — aka, Australian politicians, lying journalists at Sports Illustrated or even the “unorthodox” Ed Shadid.
