One-time mainstay of the comics page and the TV tube, the “Ripley’s Believe It or Not!” franchise still lives, currently in the occasional hardcover book, often marketed directly to kids via those Scholastic catalogs you used to drool over in elementary school.

What a relief!

This week’s second CFN follows a similar flow: Under a new state law that took effect Nov. 1, getting busted by the cops for whizzing in public no longer means one has to sign one’s name alongside child rapists on the sex offender registry.

VOTD: Vincent can go

Tulsa-born pinup St. Vincent plays six songs, expresses love for Robert Fripp and Dimebag Darrell.

In case you missed it, Tulsa-born Annie Clark recorded one of the year’s best albums in “Strange Mercy,” a rich, artful record that’s spiked with moments of morbidity and unexpected sonic textures, mostly supplied by her unique approach to guitar playing.

That style is on clear and wonderful display in these videos from a recent show shot by MTV Hive. Be sure to check out the Frippy, trippy guitar solo on ... well, all most of these songs, but especially “Northern Lights,” which races its way to a climactic finish. Early album standout “Your Lips Are Red” gets a seriously badass, almost metal-heavy facelift here. Also, Annie earns super bonus points for the end-of-show, noisy, crowd-surf move. What I would give to be that lucky stagehand...

Yeah, so come play a hometown show please, Annie. Also, tweet @OKmattcarney if you’d be interested in dating interviewing a fellow Tulsan who loves your music. OK, you got me. I really did mean “dating.” I promise Taylor and I are through.

The biggest Grinch of all isn’t the one who hates Christmas, it’s the one who loves Christmas and hates all other holidays. In 2009 and ’10, U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe resembled that Grinch.
