‘Dirty’ job

You don't want to see the film that was set in Stillwater.


CFN

Gazette staff
Opening Friday in select cities (read: likely not ours) is the dramedy “Dirty Girl,” which we only mention because it’s set in Norman, and definitely not because it looks like there’s a scene in which the leading lady might be forced to strip for some quick cash.

'Water solution'


Letters to the Editor

Edwin Kessler
There is an excellent article on water issues (“H 2 NO”) in the July 27 Gazette. There are important reasons beyond those presented in Clifton Adcock’s article for opposing sale of any of Oklahoma’s fresh waters to Fort Worth, Tarrant County, Texas.

'If Kern needs convincing...'


Letters to the Editor

Mack Paul
The Rev. Steve Kern (Letters, “Fuel for fossil debate,” July 27, Gazette) invites derision rather than serious rebuttal when he writes of “observable evidence that has convinced me that dinosaurs and man lived at the same time,” and bolsters the argument with assurances that he does indeed realize that the Earth is round.

Soundcheck: Klipspringer, 'The Trouble with Sebastian'

Sophomoric humor and guitar rock? Yes, please.


Music

Matt Carney
Norman’s Klipspringer might just be the most lyrically consistent band in the history of music in this state.

Glorious garlic

The pungent root vegetable is for more than keeping vampires at bay.

Garlic, how I love thee.

Let me count the ways. Cut and rubbed on crusty, rustic bread.

Warning: Opolis announces Peelander-Z’s return

BOYS PRETTY, GIRLS PRETTY, YOU ARE FUNNY!!!

Oh, my.

For those of you who recall their performance at this year’s Norman Music Festival, Japanese anime/cartoon/metal-ish band Peelander-Z provided a batshit-insane hour’s worth of crowd-interactive entertainment that included human bowling, a giant squid and choreographed dancing. It was hilarious and somewhat terrifying.

Opolis announced Peelander’s mighty return to Norman yesterday on its Facebook page. I tremble at the thought of those three little men performing in a tiny, enclosed space so close to my home.  The show’s set for Sept. 10th. You can watch the band’s “interview” at NMF3 below. Also be sure to check out the end of the songs “Tacos, Tacos, Tacos” and “So Many Mike.”



In the words of Samuel L. Jackson: “Hold on to your butts.”
