Tiny Furniture

You’ll have a good time watching Lena Dunham have a hard time in her brainy, but buoyant film


Drama

Rod Lott

Warning: Those allergic to quirkiness may be sent into fits of anaphylactic shock by the DIY indie “Tiny Furniture,” but the immune among us will find something of a rough gem. The microbudget dramedy plays Friday through Sunday at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art.

CFN

Gazette staff
Maybe it’s because her new NBC sitcom finally premiered to indifference, but the Interwebs aren’t as obsessed over former Oklahoman turned actress/model/geek icon Olivia Munn as in weeks past.

Pie chart

Ready for a slice? Pies are poised to become the breakout dessert of 2011.


Food and Drink Features

Malena Lott
They don’t call it “as American as apple pie” for nothing. Simple, cheap and quick have always been hallmarks of patriotic popularity (hot dogs and hamburgers, anyone?), and that goes double when it’s also piping hot and delicious. And popular.

D-I-V-O-R-C-E

Conditions are ripe for marital strife in Oklahoma, where divorce comes sweeping down the plains.


Features

Malena Lott
