Fossil watch


Letters to the Editor

Jay Edwards
In his letter, “Fuel for fossil debate” (Letters, July 27, Gazette), the Rev. Steve Kern says, “Evolution predicts there should be thousands of intermediate fossils that have come and gone to support their simple to complex gradualism. They are not there.”

Food and Drink Features

The people begin arriving in Norman as soon as the sun begins to rise. They park their vehicles and set up their grills as the tailgating begins. Soon, the campus is full of fans, young and old. By the time the Oklahoma Sooners take the field, more than 90,000 people are on campus, ready to cheer their team on to victory.

VOTD: Broncho rips Guestroom a new one

Okie punks whip up a frenzy at their album release show.

If you’ve still yet to attend* a Broncho show, you are mistaken.

Luckily, you’ve got a chance to fix that problem tomorrow, when they play the OU campus with Stardeath and White Dwarfs and Chrome Pony. If this video of their recent vinyl-release show at Guestroom Records doesn’t get you excited for it, then you might need to reevaluate your existence.

It’s also worth pointing out that this thing, shot in black-and-white by Nathan Poppe, is probably one of the budding director’s finest spontaneous works. The gritty close-ups and use of contrast is top-notch, and as they say, he’s not afraid to get right in the middle of the fray.


*I use the term “attend” loosely here. A Broncho show is really more like something you survive.

Weekend math

Shopping + music + food = a fantastic Friday and Saturday

It was only 70 degrees out this morning when I met a friend to go running (or, in my case, stumbling/lurching/whining). 70 degrees! I may or may not have sang a few snippets from “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” on the way home, because nothing welcomes a lovely, cool morning like a song from a racist Disney cartoon.

 

So, the weekend. There’s a lot going on — hopefully the nice weather actually sticks around.

Local designer Annah Chakola Ramsey is debuting her new line of jewelry and purses at a trunk show tonight at A Date with Iris. The event is from 5:30-9 p.m. and will also coincide with a fabulous new window display from the Iris ladies (seriously, they create the coolest displays).

The new line was inspired by her travels in Asia, and the gorgeous bags are actually using hand-embroidered fabric she sourced from the Hmong people. If you can’t make it to the show tonight, Annah will also be around from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday.

Tonight is also the kick-off of the Night Food Market, a really fantastic idea that brings together the growing contingent of food trucks in one location for a smorgasbord of late-night eats.

You can find the Night Food Market outside Elemental Coffee (that’s N.W. Eighth and Hudson) from 8 p.m. until 2 a.m. today. Besides food trucks, look for drinks from Coop Ale Works and Elemental.

This is hopefully the start of a new foodie tradition that will set up the last Friday of every month. For more, follow it on Twitter.

Finally, Dustbowl Arts Market presents its fifth semi-annual arts and crafts show Saturday on Campus Corner in Norman.

Besides the regional arts-and-crafters lined up along Buchanan, there will also be a kids’ area and two stages (with 20 local bands set to perform). The market runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and bands will perform from noon to 2 a.m.
