Okie local


Commentary

Jason Reese
Conservatives, especially those of a traditional bent like me, are often rightfully criticized for being downers. We gripe and moan about how things were better in the old days and that we don’t know where we are headed, but it sure looks like we are in a handbasket.

Sure thing

Edmondites behind the indie thriler ‘iCrime.’

Edmond-based Sure Crossing Films is behind the Internet-fueled thriller “iCrime,” which hits DVD and VOD on Sept. 27.

Sure Crossing principals Richard Ford and Scott Bridges produced the flick, set in the world of vlogs. Here’s the official synopsis: “’iCrime’ begins with the live kidnapping of a popular Internet celebrity and follows an Oklahoma girl obsessed with exposing it as a hoax, catapulting her to her own online celebrity in the process.”

Plus, the page for the film’s YouTube trailer mentions the phrase “sex tape.” Now you’re interested, right? —Rod Lott

VOTD: Law man

Watch the Choctaw folksinger pick, chat about life on the farm.

Local guy Ryan Lawson has a Twitter handle, but not a TV or access to the Internet. Interesting.

He’s also got a bunch of good, authoritative songs in folk, country and bluegrass styles, so maybe there’s something to living out on the fringe. He also plays his guitar the approximately the same angle Paul McCartney played his bass, which you can watch below, thanks to the “Chevy Bricktown Showcase”:
