That was then … this is now, Oklahoma City Thunder fans

It's been a good few years for the Thunder


Clark Matthews
As this issue hits the stands, the NBA’s regular season is over. For the Thunder, it was a glorious season.

VOTD: All Other Lives, all the time

Five, yes five! live performances for KEXP!

Stillwater band Other Lives is about a month away from opening for the guy who’s the odds-on favorite for album of the year right now (can you say national exposure?). But currently, they’re about to jet off to Europe for a string of festival and small-venue dates. It appears that it’ll be a few months before they perform in Oklahoma again.

But fear not, friends! KEXP Radio in Seattle shot five live-in-studio performances by Jesse Tabish and company. “For 12” is my favorite here, but please watch them and let me know what you think. I can’t overstate how great it is that Other Lives is representing Oklahoma to indie audiences across the country and Europe right now.

For  12”

As I Lay My Head Down”

“Dark Horse”


“Tamer Animals”

Kudos to, who first pointed this out on their news blog!

Thunder city

The Thunder didn’t just make it to the NBA Finals this year — it changed the face of Oklahoma City.

For many years, Oklahoma City existed in shadows.

This week at the ’Peake


Gazette staff
In the immortal words of Roseanne Roseannadanna (a onetime Saturday Night Live character by Gilda Radner, for you Millennials and younger), it’s always something. Last week’s hullaballoo surrounding Chesapeake Energy involved taxes, G-men, a Seattle newspaper’s provocative photo selection, and a compressed natural gas filling station controversy.

The pig flew the coop


Gazette staff
A collective carnivorous cry rang out earlier this year when the Nichols Hills ham joint, Divine Swine, closed its doors. The eatery’s concept had been one that Chef Josh Valentine kept near and dear to his heart. His preference was pig, and his menu of beer and bacon-glazed pecans on seared pork loin reflected his pork-centric predilection.

Turnabout’s fair play in the NBA


Seattle basketball fans finally might be ready to store their Clay Bennett voodoo dolls in the basement.

Five years since its arrival, the OKC Thunder has benefited from more than $139 million in taxpayer dollars.


Clifton Adcock
The sense of community inspired by the Oklahoma City Thunder has captured national attention since the team’s city debut in 2008. From posh luxury boxes to the upper-level $10 seats in the aptly named Loud City, Thunder games amount to a party where everyone is invited.

Du-real estate


Gazette staff
Chicken-Fried News didn’t realize Kevin Durant still had any ties left to cut with Seattle. But the Thunder superstar, who began his NBA career with the team formerly known as the SuperSonics, recently sold his house on Washington’s Mercer Island for a cool $2.4 million.

Mack the strife


Gazette staff
Oh, Seattle, isn't it time to move on? Yes, Oklahoma City has your old NBA team. But that was five years ago. Let go of the anger.
