Turbulent Skies

Casper the friendly actor saves a plane.


Action

Rod Lott
It’s strangely comforting that “Turbulent Skies” hasn’t an original idea in its 87 minutes.

Brother's Justice

Hey, Dax not funny


Comedy

Rod Lott
I know people who would love to see Dax Shepard give up comedy. (They're the kind who would say, "Did he ever start? Hi-ohhh!")

VOTD: Sufjan Stevens’ ‘Get Real, Get Right’

Cartoons ... they’re for paranoid schizophrenics, too!

From last year’s very bizarre departure “The Age of Adz,” Sufjan Stevens gives stop-motion life to Royal Robertson’s deranged sci-fi art. Owners of “Adz” will recognize much of the paranoid schizophrenic’s strange work from the liner art that accompanied the album.

The video definitely illustrates Stevens’ odd fixation with Robertson, leaving us to wonder how it will affect the future of the baroque indie composer’s work. —Matt Carney

Righteous indignation


Letters to the Editor

John D. Carlson
On behalf of all the dust balls who cannot speak for themselves, I feel that it is incumbent upon me to express a measure of indignant outrage at their — that is, the dust balls — stereotypical portrayal as being intolerantly homophobic (“Gay people living openly with homophobic dust balls” illustration by cartoonist P.S. Mueller, July 6, Gazette).

It's the tax cuts, stupid


Letters to the Editor

D.W. Tiffee
Jason Reese (Commentary, “Point: For legislative authority,” July 13, Gazette) says that “education is the centerpiece of not only personal advancement, but national prosperity and, therefore, security,” but believes the delusional Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs can solve higher education’s woes.

Get off the fence


Letters to the Editor

M. Doty
To Tom Furlong (Letter, “Agree and disagree,” July 6, Gazette): You need to get off of the fence. You can’t agree and then disagree and then judge someone for what they are or how they feel … just because they are different from you.

Slipping Mickey


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
In the June 1 edition of the Gazette, Mickey McVay wrote a scathing letter (“Discouraging words”) implying that the negative names that liberals use to define conservatives detract from intelligent political conversation (a letter I rebuked in the June 15 issue with “The gospel according to a ‘liberal’”).
