Want to hear your name in a Flaming Lips song?

All it costs is a donation. Of $100.

The Flaming Lips’ much tweeted-about six-hour song now has a name! Drumroll, please! ... It’s called ... “I Found a Star on the Ground.”

And more awesomely, you can purchase a little real estate in it. For the low, low price of $100, the band will cryptically announce your name while they record this song, which they are doing, presumably right now. Head over to the band’s site to lighten your wallet’s load for a pair of good causes; the OK Humane Society and ACM@UCO.

ACM@UCO’s professors are cooler than your professors

Cocteau Twins bassist and VH1 show host to teach.

Hey, remember when VH1 was awesome?

I don’t, because I’m 23. But somebody at ACM@UCO clearly does, as the school recently announced that Eddie Trunk will be teaching a master’s class on Oct. 5. Trunk hosts “That Metal Show,” which is currently in its eighth season since 2008. Regulars on the show include members of Anthrax, Pantera, Anvil, Black Sabbath and plenty of other bands that are likely to headline next year’s Rocklahoma festival.



English musician Simon Raymonde, most famous for playing bass for the Cocteau Twins in the ’80s and ’90s, will teach Sept. 27. His production work would ultimately prove influential on shoegaze music, so you probably owe Mr. Raymonde a serious debt of gratitude if you’ve ever enjoyed The Jesus and Mary Chain, Beach House or chillwave.



Previously ACM@UCO masters class instructors include Jackson Browne, Roger Daltry, Livia Tortella (Warner Bros. Records president), Joe Bonamassa and Steven Drozd of The Flaming Lips. At this point, they’re just showing off.

Attitude adjustment

College students are buying, selling and giving away the prescription College students are buying, selling and giving away the prescription drug Adderall. Do they understand the ramifications of abuse?


News

Matt Carney

Editor’s note: Oklahoma Gazette interviewed eight local students about Adderall abuse. All feared arrest and requested anonymity, so names have been changed.
