'Conspiracy theory'


Letters to the Editor

Michael Hopkins
When the original Obama birth certificate was released, those familiar with crank intellectualism knew what would happen: The new evidence would be made to “fit” a preposterous conspiracy theory. No matter what is found, a crank will make it “fit.”

Inexplicable nonsense


Letters to the Editor

Mack Paul
On a Monday morning several years ago, I reported to work at Noble Junior High School to be greeted by one of my students who informed me that people and dinosaurs had actually lived at the same time.

A sound shade of Blue

One woman changed the Blue Bonnet’s pattern by adding a new item to the Norman bar’s offerings: live music.


Music

Danny Marroquin
Bartlesville native Laura Birkett is the kind of lady who walks up to an aging, beer-only bar on the edge of Main Street and sees a promising oasis of Natural Light and sound.

VOTD: Let’s get rhythmic

Tulsa’s Dead Sea Choir performs the aggressive, rhythm-driven ‘Mathemagician.’

Dead Sea Choir showed up in Norman with new material two weekends ago to remind everybody that they are, indeed, totally awesome. And thanks to YouTube user BossHossV8Cycles, you, too, may experience what they’ve been cooking up lately. Enjoy.



You can download the band's first album, "Thin One the Red One" at their website, for free.

What sound does a Walrus make?

Watch three more local musicians test out Walrus Audio’s latest product, the Iron Horse.

Normanite and Gentle Ghost guitarist Brady Smith alerted his Facebook friends to another Delo Creative-created video testimonial promotion yesterday. This one, like the last one for the Voyager pedal, features three excellent local musicians playing around with it in the studio. This time, it’s Tulsa guitarist Clay Welch (Panda Resistance, Dead Sea Choir), Colourmusic drummer Nick Ley and Stardeath bass player Casey Joseph.



It sounds like this distortion pedal adds some serious force to the live performance. So watch out, Oklahoma music fans, as Brady Smith may be equipping your favorite bands with what they need to stomp on your eardrums.

VOTD: A Norman double-feature!

Watch new videos from locals Broncho and Shi++y/Awesome!

Sorry for the lack of post-age the last couple of days- I've been scrambling to catch up with work, post-ACL when I wasn't busy mourning the late retirement of one of America's greatest bands. It's not the end of the world as we know it, I guess; I feel fine. Onward to the videos!

Another Delo-helmed Broncho vid is reason to celebrate. Watch Ryan Lindsey get chased by stuff like growing up, responsibility and all that other terrible junk, represented by his murderous bandmates. Cool graphic work, guys!



Shitty/Awesome once again live up to their name with this hilarious, low-grade spacesuit romp at Norman's annual medieval fair. Those suits.

Celebrity seal

Famous names get in on the alcohol business with branded beer, liquor and more.


Food and Drink Features

Shawn Lealos
When most people head into a liquor store, they know exactly what they want. But there are times when they may notice something different. It might be a stand-up cutout of Snoop Dogg or a picture on the wall of Ludacris — it’s the sight of a familiar face that piques an interest.
