Hipster Boo Boo is opening an art gallery…

I think we found the home for the next OK Fashion Week kickoff event.

Yesterday, KFOR’s Lacey Lett infringed on our turf and broke the news that Hipster Boo Boo is opening an international contemporary art gallery in downtown Oklahoma City. It’s called the Sloan Installation Gallery, or “SIG” for short. If you just want to call it “Eye Roll,” that’s probably fine.

The gallery is owned by Christina and few other wealthy people who probably have rich parents, own an oil company and / or owe Governor Fallin a favor. It’s curated / directed by Christina’s Pink Pony bandmate, boyfriend and Carles from Hipster Runoff impersonator Steven Battles.

The gallery will feature a mix of international and local installation artists. It will also be a community meeting space for people who are really out of touch with the real Oklahoma City community. Here’s the KFOR report:

This brothel owner is our UCO “Student of the Month”

Ali Hussain Al-Yousuf,

My alma mater is doing me proud.

Yesterday, News 9 reported that the enterprising young UCO student pictured above, Ali Hussain Al-Yousuf, was arrested for running an off campus brothel. Apparently, the whole thing was part of the coursework for the university’s controversial new business class “21st Century Pimpin.”

This absent-minded woman really wants to see Garth Brooks in Tulsa…

garth brooks world tour

As you probably know, The Garth Brooks National “F*ck You, Oklahoma City!” Concert Tour is at the BOK Center in Tulsa this week. The selfish, greedy, everyman modern country crooner and his wife, Trisha Yearwood, are playing six shows in Oklahoma’s second city. Three of them were on January 9th, 10th and 11th, while three more are scheduled for the 15th, 16th and 17th. Unfortunately, Chris Gaines has not yet made an appearance.

The shows have been sold out for quite a while, with white, basic people of all ages snatching up tickets to hear Garth sing their favorite songs that are not available on Spotify or YouTube, because, once again, Garth Brooks is a selfish, greedy, everyman who thinks he knows the best way you should hear his music.

One of those white people is Shelby Javernick. We know this because she accidentally bought tickets to the wrong show, and is now spamming everyone on Facebook and Twitter in an attempt to get free tickets to one of the remaining concerts:

Once again, those are only a few examples. Check out her timeline. She’s tweeting just about everyone her not-sad, not-sympathetic-in-any-way-at-all story. My favorite part is that she tweeted Garth Brooks for help. Like he’s going to do anything. The guy is so greedy that he took back a donation from a hospital because they wouldn’t make his mom’s name on the building big enough. The only way he’s going to help a fan get tickets is if they have a sad health condition or personal tragedy that will make him look good in the media.

Since there’s not yet a Make-A-Wish Foundation for dumb, absent-minded people who forget to pay bills, book the wrong flights or order the wrong concert tickets (which sucks, because it would really benefit me) I did some checking around and was able to score some tickets for Shelby. You don’t think we’d criticize and make fun of her without helping, right?

Here are the details:

Some kids want to solve the mystery of an old wedding dress

One of the cornerstones of adulthood is the realization that there are no fairytales. There is no knight in shining armor, kissing frogs probably just gives you warts, and happily ever after generally means arguing with your spouse about money and how to raise the kids for the rest of your life. Sure, Disney can paint a pretty picture, but girl, if some strange dude tries to kiss you while you’re sleeping, you should probably hit him and alert the proper authorities.

Every once in a while, kids have to grow up a little too fast and they find out that those fairytales aren’t real. It’s a shame, but it happens. And it actually just happened to some kids in Edmond. According to KFOR.com:

EDMOND, Okla – It is an ongoing investigation for a group of students at a local elementary school.

A group of fourth graders at St. Mary’s recently found a wedding dress near a pond close to their school.

Now, they are trying to find out who it belongs to.

Head investigators Marley Hall and her partner Sam Mooney are working to crack the case.

“Some people thought that it might have been a crime scene,” 4th grade student Marley Hall said. “But we don’t think so.”

Honestly, those puffy sleeves make me think that someone just wanted to throw it away. Which is totally justifiable. I mean, look at it. Those yellowed sequins are old enough to understand that mommy and daddy aren’t going to get back together, and you’re just going to have to deal with having two Christmases every year.

Breaking down yesterday’s glorious Inauguration Day Ceremony…

I guess we know what Mary Fallin will look like when she’s finally frozen in carbonite.

Yesterday, a bronze bust of our amazing governor was unveiled to the world as part of the Inauguration Day festivities at the Oklahoma Capitol. It was the day’s second biggest highlight, topped only by Mary raising her wrong hand when it was time to take the oath of office.

Yes, that actually happened. Here’s a screenshot:

That’s not too surprising. I don’t blame Mary for getting all flustered when the judge asked her to raise her right hand. She really didn’t have time to hold her hands up and see which one formed an “L.” Plus, at least she didn’t screw up like last time and say she wanted to offend our constitution:

You can watch the entire ceremony over at C-SPAN, but let me warn you, it’s pretty long, tedious, cold and boring. I know because I watched it last night. I viewed it from the comfort of my living room and even I got the chills.

Here are a few other random notes and observations:
