The Oklahoma Volunteer Militia is here to protect us from the Federal Government

The three men pictured above are the founding members of the Oklahoma Volunteer Militia. If they look kind of scary, don’t worry. They’re actually going to be the ones who protect us from the evil Federal Government when it decides to invade Oklahoma. Comforting, huh?

We know this thanks to KFOR Channel 4. They sat down with the militia men to get their thoughts on the Cliven Bundy controversy. In case you’re not familiar, Cliven Bundy, like most men named Cliven, is an insane right-wing extremist from Nevada who owes the government nearly $1,000,000 for allowing his cattle to graze illegally on public lands. The government tried to round-up his cattle and, well, a mini-militia convention ensued.

Here’s what the Oklahoma Volunteer Militia thought about it:

TLO Trivia Night Recap: Adrian Zmed Edition!


Since the League of Champions final match isn’t until May 3rd, that’s given me lots of time to not tally scores. This means I’ve been catching up on great television shows I’ve missed. Sure, you can have your “True Detective”, “House of Cards” or “Game of Thrones,” but nothing beats T.J. Hooker. Thanks Hulu!

Just a reminder the invite-only, $1,500 League of Champions match is Saturday, May 3rd at the 51st Street Speakeasy at 7pm. Teams are limited to six people total per team and all your fun little cell phones will be put in a bucket at your table for safe keeping.

Now we’ve got that out-of-the-way, here’s some totally random Adrian Zmed questions for you! Because I love you. That’s why.

1)  What was Adrian’s name on T.J. Hooker?

2) What horrible sequel to a beloved 1970′s classic did Adrian star in?

3) What popular mid 2000′s sitcom did Adrian star on?

4) On what sitcom did he star as Joseph ‘Joey Midnight’ Raybonz

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.
