Sprawl, y'all

Metro residents are invited to attend a public meeting on urban sprawl.


News

Gazette staff
Sprawl is defined by Merriam-Webster as “an irregularly spread or scattered group or mass.” Urban sprawl’s characteristics include remote housing subdivisions jam-packed with cookie-cutter homes, homogenous strip malls for recreational shopping, and unhealthy fast-food chains.

Let’s start over


Commentary

Kyle D. Loveless
Please stop me if you have heard this one before: There is an allegation of abuse, the Oklahoma Department of Human Services sends in investigators, the child is placed in foster care, then after an uncertain amount of time, placed back into the same hellhole of abuse they were removed from.

Some Dick is going to trash a car

And you're invited!

Wanna be in a music video? Then director Richard Farmer and singer/songwriter Luke Dick, both Okie vets, sure could use you and your aggression. They’re be shooting a vid for Dick’s new song, “Who Am I,” on Sept. 10 in the Film Exchange District.

The concept: beating the crap out of an automobile.

“I’ve always wanted to capture the sledgehammer tradition in a video in some sensational fashion, especially for such a bombastic tune,” said Dick in a press release. “Over dinner, I was telling Oklahoma entrepreneur Chip Fudge about the idea of a video with apocalyptic Okies bashing a car. Being such an ol’ gear head, he got a big smile on his face and said, ‘I want to be a part of that! What better place than the Film Exchange for a film event?’”

Sound like a plan? Here’s the deal:
• Meet at 5:30 p.m. in the parking lot behind Joey’s Pizza, IAO Gallery and the Hart Building, in the 700 block of West Sheridan.
• Donate $5 at the gate, benefiting Bikers Against Child Abuse.
• Be 18 or older.
• Dress in a letter jacket or a prom dress, and in skeleton makeup.
• Read that last one again; you weren’t hallucinating.
• Don’t worry — you’re in good hands. Farmer directed Gnarley Barkley’s “Run” video, after all.
• And until then, enjoy this clip of Dick covering Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi.” Hey, it worked for that kid in Edmond. —Rod Lott

VOTD: Law man

Watch the Choctaw folksinger pick, chat about life on the farm.

Local guy Ryan Lawson has a Twitter handle, but not a TV or access to the Internet. Interesting.

He’s also got a bunch of good, authoritative songs in folk, country and bluegrass styles, so maybe there’s something to living out on the fringe. He also plays his guitar the approximately the same angle Paul McCartney played his bass, which you can watch below, thanks to the “Chevy Bricktown Showcase”:
