Meet Norm Osteen, who I assume has no relation to that Texas megachurch president. He’s just a regular scary looking dude, who probably likes to spend his time collecting ‘do-rags, sketching knuckle tattoo designs, and wielding machetes.
From News on 6:
Red Dirt (Tony) vs. Green Country (Chelsea) is TLO’s newest segment, in which contributors argue about whether 405 or the 918 has the better of different cultural institutions. For instance, if the topic was “convenience stores,” Tulsa’s QuikTrip would be the obvious winner. If it was “Professional Basketball Teams,” OKC would win. And if it was “Politicians,” we would all lose! Pretty simple, right? This will settle once and for all which is the better city. Today is the first installment.
By now everyone has heard about the statue the Satanic Temple in New York wants to install at the Oklahoma State Capitol. Among normal people, reactions have ranged from bemusement to complete enthusiasm. Among people who someday want to get elected to political office, the most common reaction is to pretend to be offended.
If the Satanic statue were to ever be installed, it would immediately be the weirdest, most awkward statue in the state of Oklahoma, and by a pretty wide margin. But it’s not there yet, so today Chelsea and Tony are here to debate who has the current Most Awkward Statue in the state: the Tulsa area, or the Oklahoma City area?
The arguments are after the fold.
This has been a rough week for most of us. Between holidays, ice and snow, and those “sick” days you took for last-minute Christmas errands, jumping back into the routine of a fully functioning adult has been tough to say the least. Plus, you know, Netflix. Thanks to a month’s worth of short weeks, Netflix, my couch, and I have been getting pretty intimate.
Oh yeah, and it’s f#$&ing cold outside. Like, cold to the point where I dread showering. Like, cold enough that I’ve succumbed to my puppy peeing all over my house because he’s too scared to go in the ice and snow (and well, I don’t blame him). It also doesn’t help that I’m the kind of petite female who gets chili in 68 degree indoor temperatures. This week especially, the contrast between my warm blankets on my couch and trudging through slush and Arctic winds to sit in a drafty cubicle has been a struggle.
So if you, like myself, have spent all morning perusing Buzzfeed in your winter coat and snow mittens, I’ve come up with a few uh, more creative and (slightly) more subtle ways you can stay toasty and get through the rest of winter. Check ‘em out after the jump.
I’m about a decade too old to be into boy bands, but I can’t help but kinda like One Direction. I like their accents, I like that they call Simon Cowell “Uncle Simon,” and I like how the heavily tattooed one conspicuously dumped Taylor Swift the same week that her single about getting dumped by bad boys was released. But mostly, I appreciate that although they have silly haircuts and sing songs that get stuck in your head, they haven’t nearly approached the level of awful that is Justin Bieber.
However, this band of merry Brits might want to consider getting a new publicist / wardrobe designer / photographer / whoever happened to be on set when they staged this promo image:
Hollywood doesn’t give the same kind of love to Thanksgiving as it does Christmas, or even Halloween. In fact, when it comes to the silver screen, Thanksgiving’s representation is comparable to that of St. Patrick’s Day, or the Fourth of July, which is odd considering that the only thing anyone wants to do in the hours leading up to Thanksgiving dinner is watch copious amounts of television.
I wanted to put together a list of Thanksgiving movies, but then I realized that there’d probably only be two movies on said list. Instead, I’ve fashioned a countdown that includes a bunch of movies that mention Thanksgiving in some form, no matter how insignificantly it contributes to the plot.
1. Planes Trains and Automobiles
When someone mentions “Thanksgiving movies,” this is pretty much the only film that comes to mind. It is the Citizen Kane of Thanksgiving movies. If we were all playing King’s Cup and someone designated “Thanksgiving flicks” as the category, everyone but the first person who took a turn would have to take a drink.
