Topic: Mike

Talk about scandalous!

Gazette staff
Let’s just say up front that Chicken Fried News has a soft spot for Mike McCarville, the longtime Oklahoma journalist and Republican politico who runs the website The McCarville Report Online, or TMRO if you’re an acronym-thusiast. Mike has written for this here publication many times, and he’s a righteous dude.

The Mole Man of Belmont Avenue

Didn't dig it.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Tenants of a low-rent apartment building have some problems: The electricity has been shut off; their pets are disappearing under mysterious circumstances; and worst of all, they're stuck in a horror comedy that's not the least bit amusing: The Mole Man of Belmont Avenue.

Music Made Me: Mike Hosty

The rollicking blues enthusiast shares the five albums that shaped his rugged musical outlook.


Music

Phil Bacharach
Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Will the Circle be Unbroken (1972) 

My dad bought this album and played it over and over on his new 1978 Nikko hi-fi stereo, which I still have. It was the guitar playing of Doc Watson and Merle Travis that really caught my ear. Amazing picking, playing and songs like “Tennessee Stud.”

Oklahoma’s public defenders


Commentary

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.

All Hallows' Eve / Chilling Visions: 5 Senses of Fear

Boo! (Repeat as necessary.)


Horror

Rod Lott
'Tis the season for horror anthologies. As if V/H/S/2 and Horror Stories weren't enough to keep your armchair warm as the cold descends, here are two more for the Halloween season …. and many more Halloween seasons to come.

Horse Thief – Fear in Bliss


Indie

Zach Hale
Listening to Horse Thief’s previous release — the haphazardly melodramatic Grow Deep, Grow Wild — felt like a chore. Whatever potential the Oklahoma City folk-pop act demonstrated on the EP was obscured behind a formulaic, contrived and ultimately hollow cloud. But it at least offered a glimmer of promise for a band consisting of, frankly, five pretty talented dudes. Critics saw it; the band’s management saw it; its current label, Bella Union, saw it; and its increasingly fervid fan base saw it.
