24 Bold Predictions for 2013 (2 of 2)

Yesterday we counted down our first 12 predictions for the year. Here’s the second half of the list. There’s a good chance some of them will come true.

13. Christina Fallin DOES NOT get married this year.

(Remember, these are supposed to be bold predictions. The rest are after jump. And yes, that’s some girl with pink hair whose name rhymes with Latina Howlin’ partying at Saints in the Plaza District. Thank you, Ogle Mole Network.)

14. Meg Alexander openly admits that she has been trying to “Single White Female” Joleen Chaney for over a year now.

24 Bold Predictions for 2013 (1 of 2)

Well, I guess it’s time to give our now annual list of bold predictions for the new year. This time around we have a list of 24 predictions as opposed to the usual 20. Why is that? I honestly have no clue. I guess we’re bettering our chances of getting some of them correct.

Anyway, we’ll post 12 predictions today and 12 more tomorrow. Here we go.

1. Kevin Durant informs Hasheem Thabeet about the caps lock button on his iPhone.

2. Sweet Brown arrested for arson.

Toby Keith may be Benjamin Button

Here’s another random Oklahoma-centric YouTube video I stumbled across. It’s of the McCain Brothers interviewing a very young Toby Keith. Well, at least I think it’s a young Toby Keith. Other than bulking up and growing more distinct facial hair, I’m not sure the guy has aged in the past 20 years.

Yes, Toby Keith may be taking an anti-aging pills, or the water at Lake Thunderbird may have special healing properties, but one thing is the same: He still looks like he should be selling propane somewhere on South Shields.

Anyway, for those of you too young to remember, the two goofballs interviewing Toby are the McCain brothers. I tried to come up with a proper analogy to describe what exactly they were, but I can’t really think of one. That’s probably a good thing. I don’t think there’s ever been anything like them in this market. I guess try to imagine Kelly and Kevin Ogle as ultra-cheery morning news anchors who do things like this:

See what I mean? Here are a couple of other McCain brother interviews with a not yet very famous but still hot Shania Twain, and…Tim Allen. Enjoy.

1997: The year Marilyn Manson hysteria hit Oklahoma City

Yesterday, I got a little bored and decided to browse YouTube for some Oklahoma-centric videos. Surprisingly, I found some that were moderately interesting and worth posting and had nothing to do with selling used cars. I figured it would be fun to post some of them over the next few days. And yes, that’s because I’m still recovering from the holidays and have no clue what day it is.

Anyway, this video is from an old MTV News report by Kurt Loder that chronicles a 1997 Marilyn Manson concert in Oklahoma City. In the early winter of that year, his shitty cartoonish death metal band came to town, and our local citizens, civic leaders and media freaked the hell out:

Mike Morgan doesn’t like censorship. Thinks we need to “Grow Up” and “Have Some Balls.”

If you read this website often, you’re probably aware that we have an interesting relationship with KFOR Chief Meteorologist Mike Morgan. Sure, we occasionally give him a hard time for over-hyping the weather, but we enjoy his work, his tie, and even made the Mike Morgan Drinking Game in his honor. To show his appreciation for all of this, Mike emailed us pictures of his wife, former rodeo queen Marla Morgan, (seriously) as part of a strange tribute.

On Sunday night, though, I received a series of distressed emails from Mike accusing us of censorship and trying to assassinate his career. Apparently Mike tried to reply to a comment that a reader left about him, and since Mike was a first time commenter, his comments were put in a moderation queue where they have to be manually approved. This is done to prevent spammers, trolls, people who take us too seriously, and crazed weatherman from hijacking a thread. Mike did not approve of this safety measure, and just minutes after posting his comments, fired off a mean series of emails.

Here they are:
