Wayne Coyne is denying he had an affair…

That may be the most real life pic of Wayne Coyne to ever be posted on the Internet. He’s not wearing a gray suit with an ax sticking out of his head while trapped in a giant hamster ball. He’s not taking a bath in his front yard or constructing a paper mache vagina. It’s simply Wayne Coyne, at the beach in Mexico, enjoying a wonderful afternoon with his cute little girlfriend that he left his wife for. And they’re not naked. Amazing, huh?

I bring all this up because Wayne’s ongoing divorce battle from his long time wife Michelle Martin-Coyne is in the news again. In an article published late last week, The State’s Most Trusted News claimed that Wayne is trying to keep adultery accusations out of the divorce.

From NewsOK.com:

Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne is asking a judge to keep adultery accusations against him out of his divorce.

His wife, Michelle Martin-Coyne, 45, petitioned for divorce in September on the legal ground of incompatibility.H

In an amended petition in October, she stated she is entitled to a divorce “on the additional grounds of adultery.”

In an answer filed Feb. 18, the rock singer, 53, denied the allegation…

Oh, give us a break. Get off your psychedelic mushroom-glazed high horse. As we first noted in August of 2012, it was Wayne’s affair and insistence on living a very public rock star lifestyle that led to the Coynes’ split. And as the pic above shows, he’s still involved with the same girl. Denying the adultery allegations is ridiculous. It would be like me claiming not to be an asshole.

Of course, Wayne’s attorney says the adultery accusations don’t matter:

His attorney, Chris Deason, wrote, “Oklahoma is a no-fault state. There are no children at issue in the instant case. Allowing petitioner to delve into issues of adultery will garner her no additional relief and will constitute a waste of this court’s resources. The only purpose served by pleading adultery is to harass or embarrass respondent.”

Ha, is it really possible to embarrass Wayne Coyne? At last check, he’s the same guy who shut down the Oklahoma City airport with a grenade. He’s been kicked off Instagram for posting too much nudity… twiceHe photographed Erykah Badu naked in a bathtub filled with fake semen and glitter and tweeted a pic of it. Hell, the guy has balls so big he walks around in them for fun.

If you ask me, the only thing that seems to embarrass The Flaming Lips frontman is being caught doing something the Average Joe would do, like shopping at Wal-Mart or cheating on his wife. It would make sense. Outside of the pic above, there are hardly any photos of Wayne with his attractive 20-something-year-old ladyfriend. When you consider a) the couple’s been together for at least 18 months and B) the amount of photos that Wayne posts to the Internet, isn’t that kind of weird?It’s like he’s trying to keep the thing a secret.

Here’s the only other pic we have of them together. It may look familiar:

10 ways to make Oklahoma the most miserable state…

oklahoma postcard

I love Oklahoma, so it upsets me when we are beaten in polls by states like Mississippi or West Virginia.

Last week, Oklahoma was ranked as “The 9th Most Miserable State” in a national well-being / link-baiting index. USAToday.com:

9. Oklahoma

> Well-being index score: 64.7
> Life expectancy: 75.9 years (5th lowest)
> Percent obese: 30.5% (10th highest)
> Median household income: $44,312 (10th lowest)
> Percent with high school diploma: 86.7% (19th lowest)

Oklahomans had among the most unhealthy behaviors in the U.S. during 2013. Only about half of the population said they ate fruits and vegetables on a regular basis last year, less than any other state. Oklahoma residents also reported poor access to basic necessities. More than 10% of residents said they did not have easy access to clean and safe drinking water, worse than any other state. Oklahomans also self-reported poor physical health. More than 6% of adults said they have had a heart attack as of last year, more than in any other state, and considerably higher than the national average of 3.8%. In 2010, there were 235.2 heart disease-related deaths per 100,000 residents, the third-highest rate nationwide.

10% of our residents don’t have access to clean and safe drinking water? That’s puzzling. Also, 6% of adults claimed they had a heart attack last year? Doesn’t that seem high? But don’t worry. These problems can all be fixed. All we need to do is give a tax break to the rich. Then everything will figure its way out.

Actually, it’s not the easy. In fact, improving our state is pretty damn hard. Since we’ll never do anything to combat these problems, I think we should go all out and try to be the most miserable state in the country. It shouldn’t be too hard to accomplish. Plus, we’ll finally be number one at something.

Here are some tips how:

8 Reasons to Vote for Mayor Mick Cornett today…

Oklahoma City will choose a mayor today. Well, kind of. We’ll be lucky to have over 30,000 voters, so it’s more like a few people around town will choose a mayor today. As a voter, that works for me.

To get you in the voting spirit (and to remind you to get out and vote), I thought I’d share 8 reasons why you should vote for either Mayor Cornett or Councilman Shadid. As the title suggests, these are the 8 reasons to vote for Mayor Mick. If you don’t like them, check out the 8 reasons to vote for Ed Shadid. If you don’t like those, you should probably move to Mustang.

Here we go:

1. You’re a member of the Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce and / or Ruling Elite

These people really like Mick Cornett. Or let me re-phrase that, Mayor Cornett really likes these people. He’d better. They’re the ones who get to pick the mayor.

nyu

2. Uhm, he did go to school at NYU

The Shadid camp tried to turn that into a negative issue, but I think it’s pretty bad ass. It’s almost as cool as being a member of the Oklahoma City Community College Alumni Hall of Fame.

8 Reasons to Vote for Ed Shadid today…

Oklahoma City will choose a mayor today. Well, kind of. We’ll be lucky to have over 30,000 voters, so it’s more like a few people around town will choose a mayor today. As a voter, that works for me.

Hey, that’s what I wrote in the 8 reasons to vote for Mayor Cornett! See what we’re doing here?We’re giving you 8 reasons to vote for each candidate. Here are the ones for Councilman Shadid:

1. You hated every MAPS project

Believe it or not, these people exist. I know because I’m related to a couple of them. Anyway, if you hated the other MAPS projects, you should vote for Ed because he changed his mind and now wants to defund the MAPS III Convention Center.

2. You really like neighborhoods

Even though he lives in Founders Tower, Ed loves neighborhoods. As Mayor, he’d probably start an effort to make a Maps 4 Hoods. It would make sense. The first maps was for downtown, the second was for schools and the third was for the Chamber. If we can figure out a way for it to benefit wealthy landowners, it should pass easily.

P.s. – Wasn’t it fun to watch Mayor Cornett try to brand himself as the “neighborhood mayor” over the past couple of months? That was cute.

Ed Shadid accidentally mailed the wrong negative campaign postcard…

Last Friday, certain voters in the Oklahoma City area received a very strange postcard in the mail from the Ed Shadid campaign.

Here’s the front of the card:

shadid pc front

Ok, that’s not the weird part. It’s just a typical negative campaign ad. The whole “Mayor Cornett spent two years getting his MBA from NYU, and therefore, he doesn’t care about Oklahoma City and shouldn’t be mayor” message has been consistently delivered by Shadid and his supporters throughout this campaign. Although I see how the issue can irk some people, it really doesn’t bother me. Is it weird for the Mayor to go out-of-state to get an MBA? Maybe. Does it really matter in this age of connectivity, smartphones, emails and a daily non-stop flight from OKC to Newark? Not really. Did it affect his job as mayor? I don’t think so.

Here’s the part where the postcard gets funny / amusing / strange. On the reverse side, it warns that Mayor Mick’s time in New York City may have made him a little too “Big League City” for OKC’s taste. Specifically, it calls out the Mayor for turning Bricktown into 1970s Times Square and being in favor of gay rights. It even quotes Mary Fallin.

Check it out.
