Once again, I’m having serious difficulty focusing on anything right now. I’ve been dealing with this constant feeling of euphoria, disbelief and slight anxiety for the last 12 hours or so and am not sure how to deal with it. If I had to compare it to anything, I’d say it reminds me of how I felt on December 3rd, 2000. The only difference is that today’s a Thursday, and I don’t have to wait a month for the next game.
Anyway, we should have some Barkley photos up later today, but until then, here’s a random video of former KOKH Fox 25 anchor Andrew Speno giving a desperate sales pitch for his new company. It’s kind of unintentionally funny.
Remember Erykah Badu? I don’t either. I know she wore the same hat as Jabba the Hut’s dancer and sang that song that went on and on and on and on, but that’s about all I know.
The reason I ask is because Erykah recently collaborated with The Flaming Lips on a cover of “The First Time I ever Saw Your Face.” They shot a music video for the track and Erykah’s sister was naked in it and Wayne Coyne posted the unedited video and he wasn’t supposed to and Erykah got mad and sent Wayne a nasty tweet…or something like that. I really have no clue. The Thunder are going to the fucking NBA finals and I can’t really focus on anything else right now!!!
Anyway, you can check out the entire story on Pitchfork. Or if you just want to read the mean and poorly written manifesto that Erykah sent to Wayne on Twitter, you can do that here:
The other day an Ogle Mole sent me the following picture from a Peggy Gandy column in The Oklahoman’s society page. It’s of three blonde news anchors and two openly gay news reporters:
Wait, wrong image. I have no clue what’s going on there. I think that photo was taken on the set of a bad Tim Burton film or backstage at a Good Charlotte concert.
Here’s the photo I meant to post:
It’s contest time!
LL Cool J, everyone’s favorite hiphop artist turned NCIS special agent, will be performing on Saturday, June 23rd at Lucky Star Casino in Concho. Because they are awesome, our friends at Lucky Star Casino have decided to giveaway six concert tickets — plus a limo ride to and from the show — to one lucky TLO reader.
To enter the contest, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post and tell us what your favorite LL Cool J song is and why. For example, my favorite track is ”Mamma Said Knock You Out.” Back when I was junior at Putnam City West High School, I quoted the lyrics to this song that one time I beat up Zac Warner, Billy Stone and Josh Pettit in the freshman parking lot and won the right to ask Breck Clanawhatever to prom. Since then, it’s always stuck with me.
Anyway, on Tuesday, June 19th, we’ll pick one comment at random. If your comment is selected, you win the prize! It’s that simple! Just be sure to keep these things in mind:
- When you post your comment, be sure to use a current email address in the “email” field. That’s how we’ll contact you if you win.
- The limo ride is available in the OKC metro only. So if you live in Beaver, Hooker or Idabel, we’re sorry.
- There are other contest rules and stuff that you can read here.
Also, we’d like to thank our friends at Lucky Star Casino for putting this contest together. Whenever you feel like winning money, go there. And if you don’t win the tickets in our contest, you can still buy them here.
So far, we’ve received a decent response to our Charles Barkley photo bounty contest. We’ve been sent a dozen or two photos, including a $5 gem of Charles standing with a black person! Cha-Ching, that’s a Lost Ogle Bounty Money Ball!
Anyway, we’ve also received a couple of pictures from Barkley’s first visit to Oklahoma City. It took place when Charles played for the Phoenix Suns. We posted this photo last week of a couple of ladies hanging with Chuck at the Bricktown Brewery, but I think this story is even better.
We received an email from Irving Middle School teacher Kendall Speer. She’s the girl in the photograph above, and may just be the biggest Charles Barkley fan in Oklahoma:
Thanks! Your message has been sent!
