Ain’t no ‘Hack’

Listen to local Ryan Lawson’s new album, ‘Hack & Saw Nation,’ for free.

Choctaw folkie and singer/songwriter Ryan Lawson recently announced the release of his new album, “Hack & Saw Nation,” which you can stream for free or purchase at his Bandcamp page. Two live-recorded songs, “One Year Ago” and “Toxic Fumes,” are also available for free.

Lawson’s signature croon is a state treasure, and comes bolstered here by Melissa Stevens’ backing vocals. Also featured on the album are guitarist Aaron Tackett, bassist Kristina Tackett, multi-intstrumentalist Brad Fielder and fiddle player Daniel Foulks (who made an OKS appearance on video just a few weeks ago).

Can’t recommend this one enough. Stream it below, and do consider shelling out a couple of bucks for this one. “Broken Record”’s worth the $5 itself.

Is this thing on?

::clears throat::

Jenny has passed her vibrant and quirky torch to me, as you may have already heard.
I’m your new resident ShopGirl, and I’ll do my best to keep you sweeties up-to-date on all things local and must-go.

First things first, right? I’m Jenn. I grew up on a dairy farm where I milked cows every day.

I was also charged with gathering the eggs from the henhouse. The whole milking cow thing was OK, but the feat of egg gathering was a daily strain that spiked an unnatural amount of fear in my being. Why, you say? Well, have you ever looked at a chicken in its beady eyes?

If you’ve done so and lived to speak of it, then I can only assume you are a soulless fowl constituent who secretly leads a double life in a colony of birds. You probably meet bimonthly and discuss the demise of me and other feather-fearing humans.

Right, more about me ... I’m a cold weather fan. And by fan I mean that I’m obsessed with snow and rain. Pictured below: My first boyfriend and I.



You might be thinking, How in the world did this gal with an Oklahoma-farmer background come to write about city-centric shopping? Well, if we’re being honest, it’s always been in the stars for me.

I’m incredibly drawn to all things beautiful, and I’m open to the idea that perception plays into each person’s idea of beauty. That being said, I’ll do my best to provide you lot with a wide variety of options, as well as the tools to search out and build your own personal style. Do you have your own person style mantra? If not, get to work on that!

It’s really an exciting time in the fashion world, mainly because the idea of style has taken root, grown and returned to an industry that had begun to drift in a less-than-approachable direction. Style is now saying, “Hey! No one wants to wear that!” The idea of buying into trends because they are fashionable is slipping away (thankfully!), and the freedom to be creative and personal with your style choices is settling in comfortably as the fashionable front-runner.

Anyway, I want to hear from you. What do YOU want help shopping for? If you’ve got ideas for, or if you have specific questions concerning fit (Can’t find the right pair of jeans? Let me know ... I know a guy! Want to know where to shop for the highest-quality workwear that won’t break your bank? Turns out I’ve a penchant for penny pinching sidled along my budget-breaking tastes.), please send them my way. Email me at jscott@tierramediagroup.com. Together, we’ll be the snazziest metro in the Midwest. Let’s shop, OKC!

The Human Centipede II

‘The Human Centipede II’ madman’s got legs, and he knows how to use them. You’ve been warned.


Horror

Rod Lott
Anyone who can recall our review last year of “The Human Centipede (First Sequence)” may remember an observation that the film’s events weren’t as graphic as everyone expected — that they could’ve been much worse.

Nice cans

I was can #1,248. Let me know what your can number is, for a good cause!

Are you hungry right now? If you're reading this at your computer, I'm willing to wager you've also eaten a few meals today. Here's the thing: Some people haven't. Nor do they have the means to do so. 

Allens Veggies launched an awesome campaign (“I Yam What I Yam, Donate a Can”) to help combat hunger. It will run through Halloween, and the goal is to reach 3,000 cans. Pairing with local food banks (Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma), bolstered by the wonders of social media, one can of Popeye Spinach for every new Allens Veggies Facebook fan.

Since you're at your computer already, why not hop on over to Allen's Facebook and “like” it?
