Friday Night in the Big Town: The Paramount, Return of Hosty, Fighting and Record Store Day

Hello everyone. It’s Adam.

You can all exhale now. The Lost Ogle, and more importantly me, have survived Heartbleed. The bug and band name of countless terrible emo bands allows mean people to steal info from computers, websites and devices. We live on.

You may not know this but Patrick has a crack team of former hackers on retainer 24 hours a day, seven days a week. When you live in the lavish world of successful regional bloggers, nothing is too expensive and you can never be too safe. You are always a target.

The paranoia has gotten the best of him. Rumor has it that Patrick no longer leaves his compound, sending his stand-in double out to events like Lost Ogle Trivia Night and filing lawsuits against governors.

I have never met the man. I’ve only communicated with him through his cryptic emails and the key is sent through FedEx. He’s the Keyser Söze of our day. Don’t cross him. Don’t look him in the eye. Actually, don’t even mention I wrote this. I’m done for.

Dean Blevins Invented the “CumInHandy2Nite” Hashtag

Last night, OU defeated OSU 12-9 in an 18-inning battle at Allie P. Reynolds stadium in Stillwater. It was the longest game ever in the Bedlam series. Our condolences go out to everyone who was in attendance at game. Going through a 9-inning college baseball game is bad enough. 18-innings? That’s just torture.

When the game approached the 14th inning, News 9′s Dean Blevins put down what I assume to be a very large bong and Playboy magazine to share his thoughts about the contest:

Just like a poem, song lyric or Scott Brooks coaching decision, Dean Blevins tweets can be incredibly difficult to understand and interpret. In the tweet above, I think he was trying to say the Big 12 should have called the game, declared it a tie, and in the process, given Regular Jim Traber a fatal brain aneurysm. Maybe Dean has it out for Regular Jim?

Then again, perhaps Dean was trying to say that he “should call it a night.” If so, he should have followed his own advice. It would have prevented this from happening 8-minutes later:

Christina Fallin threw up on “Oklahoma Fashion Week”

Last week, Oklahoma Fashion Week came and went. If you missed it, consider yourself lucky. The event was promoted and organized by Oklahoma’s finest celebutante Hipster Boo Boo (a.k.a. Christina Fallin).

We know this because:

A) Hipster Boo Boo being involved in something like “Oklahoma Fashion Week” makes total sense.

B) Photos like this:

Yes, that’s Mary and Christina Fallin at the Oklahoma Fashion Week media kick off. She, along with (retired) Major General Rita Aragon (this lady!), the Oklahoma Secretary of Military and Veteran Affairs, were the keynote speakers. Who would invite a crazy conservative Governor who wears open-toed shoes with hose (and a general who likes Glamour Shots) to kick off a fashion event? Oh, I know! Maybe some girl whose only source of credibility comes from her mom’s last name. Makes sense.

Seriously, Christina, get out of your mom’s shadow! Do something on your own! And by do something on your own, I don’t mean change your name to just “Christina” or run off and do awful projects with Wayne Coyne or Desmond Mason. That just makes you look even more desperate.

Anyway, if having Governor Fallin and General Big Collar didn’t convince you that Christina Fallin is the no-longer-pink-haired mastermind behind Oklahoma Fashion Week, check out these photos we grabbed of the kick off from some obscure local fashion website called “A Cuppa Fashion.” It doesn’t show any models wearing Native American headdresses, but it’s still good for a laugh:

7 Oklahoma Smartphone App Ideas…

If you have a smartphone, you have a bunch of sweet apps that make your life easier. Unless, of course, you have a Blackberry. That’s what I have, so my life is pretty difficult, especially when the camera on my phone is out of film.

I hear stories of people making a lot of money by creating apps and then selling them. I want to get rich, so I came up with some ideas to help get me there.

1. The Mike Morgan Weather Fear App

What it does: When severe weather strikes, this app will tell you to get in your car with your loved ones and tell you which direction to drive to get in the most danger. It will alert you 30 minutes before the severe weather which will give you plenty of time to get on a major interstate, which has because of this advice, been turned into a parking lot.

Cost: $1.99

Finalists Announced for $1,500 League of Champions Title Match…

free team trivia brains

After some number crunching and Excel tutorials, we’ve determined the 14 teams that will compete in TLO Trivia Night “League of Champions” title match. The match will be held on Saturday, May 3rd at the 51st Speakeasy.

Here’s the prize pool:

First Place: $725
Second Place: $400
Third Place: $225
Fourth Place: $150

Yep, those are the cash prizes for the Champions Match. I guess it pays to go to restaurants and answer trivia questions. I’d like to thank all four of our trivia partners – The 51st Street Speakeasy, LOCAL, Yucatan Taco Stand and Buffalo Wild Wings on Expressway – for coming to together and making the League of Champions possible.

Before we get to the finalists, here are a few notes:

• Teams were awarded League of Champions points based upon A) how many trivia nights they attended B) where they placed at each trivia night.

• The League of Champions will be returning later this year. The dates and format – we may make a few changes – should be announced very soon.

• We’ll still be giving away nearly $400 each week in cash and prizes at our TLO Trivia Night venues. If you have never played TLO Trivia Night, you should. Unlike the other imitation trivia nights around town, our brand of trivia is pretty fun. In fact, 4 out of 5 OU dental students prefer TLO Trivia Night to other less-interesting trivia nights.

Here are the 14 teams that earned a spot in the big match. Congrats to them all.
