The NYT profiles the Coyne compound

‘People assume we are just gobbling handfuls of acid all the time.’

Back in 2008, The New York Times visited Wayne and his wife’s strange digs -then in the middle of a remodeling- here in Oklahoma City. They recently returned to document the compound operating at full capacity.

Click through to read a fun interview with him, and see some really incredible photographs of the compound, shot by Casey Dunn

VOTD: Girls just wanna have fun

Watch Girls’ J.R. White show off his directing chops.

So Girls’ second full-length is out, to much gushing from … well … everybody. After seeing the video for “Honey Bunny,” add this critic to the long list. A few lyrics that Chris Owens sings while stealing a Corvette and picking up a pretty girl (Hannah Hunt of the band Dominant Legs, his real-life gal-pal):

• “I know you love me, for all the reasons everyone hates me.”
• “They don’t like my bony body, they don’t like my dirty hair.”
• “She really loved me, even when I was bad.”

White’s use of golden sunlight in this video is absolutely fantastic. Very late-‘60s San Francisco. Watch it at The New York Times’ culture blog.

Out of alignment


CFN

Gazette staff
For the Sept. 28 installment in the wacky world of Big 12 expansion (“Nine is enough”), Chicken-Fried News reported on the University of Oklahoma Board of Regents giving OU President David L. Boren the latitude to negotiate alignment options, prompting a largely anticipated move to the Pacific-12 with Oklahoma State University that ended up, um, not actually happening.

VOTD: It ain’t easy being ... from New Zealand

Bret McKenzie and Kermit the Frog sing an original song from ‘The Muppets.’

There is a poster promoting “Flight of the Conchords”’ second season on HBO in my office. Thus, any video of Bret McKenzie playing or writing songs on the fly are an automatic VOTD, doubly so when accompanied by any Muppet.

That’s the case here, thanks to The New York Times magazine, which corralled the New Zealand comedian into a studio to talk about his work composing original songs for the new “Muppets” movie and even perform one with the little green guy. It’s a fun little feature, and most definitely worth your time (click through to watch). Turns out writing songs for Muppets is extra-tricky, as McKenzie learned.

Also be sure to read Rod Lott’s super-exclusive interview with Jason Segel. And pick up a copy of tomorrow’s Gazette for a review of the film, which also opens tomorrow.

At the risk of sounding like one of those rabidly anti-East Coast types, we’ve gotta note that The New York Times is at it again.

Remembering Anthony Shadid


Commentary

Phil Bacharach
What I remember most about Anthony Shadid from high school was his laugh. It was disarmingly infectious. His eyes would crinkle and his head would tilt back, and he reminded me of a young Ringo Starr, all smiles and shy charm.
