Body Language — Social Studies

This band is properly named.


Joshua Boydston
If Body Language breaks out like it has the potential to, the Brooklyn-based four piece surely would owe a heavy debt to Passion Pit; it’s a similar formula with the twist of adding a female vocalist … although that feels but a step removed from Michael Angelakos’ signature falsetto.

Sky Nelson
Since the sweltering summer heat has made its exit, so should indoor workouts. Outdoor exercise makes a great boredom-busting option to heat up any fitness routine.

Going the distance

Running your first marathon may be easier than you think.


Malena Lott

Have you reached a certain age (or weight) and decided it’s time to hit the pavement in running shoes? Some take it a step further — and farther — and set a goal to participate in local charity runs and marathons. Five-km races, half marathons (13.1 miles) and full marathons (26.2 miles) become the yellow-brick road for new runners.

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
In most cases, drinking beer while running is ill-advised. Exception: Saturday’s second annual McNellie’s Pub Run, starting 11:30 a.m. at the Midtown hot spot, 1100 Classen Drive. In addition to traditional race and fun-run options, the Guinness Challenge adds a trio of 12-ounce pints to a four-mile course. Hic! Registration is $15-$45. Visit

Whether you’re walking or running, the 26th annual Renaissance Run begins at 8:30 a.m. Saturday at the Midwest City Community Center, 200 N. Midwest Blvd. Too early for you? Perhaps this phrase will change your mind: “concludes with a pancake breakfast.” Thought so. Registration is $30. Call 739-1293 or visit signmeup. com/84804.

The Victim

Biehn there, dumb that.


Rod Lott
Michael Biehn was so inspired by appearing in Grindhouse that he wrote and directed his own grindhouse tribute, The Victim.
