Day of the Dead

Eat it up.


Horror

Patrick Crain
With the exception of George Lucas’s Star Wars movies, few franchises that laid their foundation on the big screen were as culturally significant as George A. Romero’s Dead films. Everything about our conception of zombies derive from Romero’s creations. Before Night of the Living Dead — Romero’s stark, groundbreaking drive-in shocker from 1968 — zombies were barely in the public’s collective wheelhouse. Usually featured as trance-like beings who were used as slave labor, zombies were more tools of an insidious puppet master than a force unto themselves. Heck, before Night of the Living Dead, the term “undead” was mostly used to describe vampires.

Colourmusic — A Very Special Colourmusic Christmas: Vol. 1


Indie

Joshua Boydston

Oklahoma is quickly becoming the indie Christmas music capital of the world, it seems, with yearly compilation albums featuring everyone from Stardeath and White Dwarfs to Graham Colton. So it makes sense that Colourmusic — freak-poppers hailing from Stillwater — would craft a full album of original, offbeat holiday tunes themselves.

OKG7 let’s do lunch, downtown


OKG7 Dining

Kelley Chambers
Head to the central business district in downtown Oklahoma City for lunch options including fine dining and casual stops. Whether you’re just downtown for the day, it’s your day in court, it’s a business lunch, you’re trying to impress the boss (or vice versa) or you just want to be surrounded by tall buildings, find a parking spot and grab some grub.
