The Admiral Twin Drive-In Theater in Tulsa, Oklahoma burns and TMZ gets the story

by on Sep.11, 2010, under MOVIES | TELEVISION, RELIGION

Brian of Euphonic Dissonance gives us news on the loss of the historic ADMIRAL TWIN DRIVE-IN in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

TMZ gave the Admiral Twin Drive-In the press attention it needed after fire destroyed this historic landmark where the 1983 movie THE OUTSIDERS (starring Matt Dillon, Tom Cruise, Patrick Swayze, Ralph Macchio, and Diane Lane) was filmed. Okay, it was really TMZ.com – but that’s still amazing. This may be the best publicity this old theater gets – so make sure you go to the blog and post a comment showing your support for the Historic Admiral Twin Drive-In. Here’s the blog entry…

Movie Theater Playing ‘Last Exorcism’ Burns Down

A drive-in movie theater in Oklahoma burned down yesterday — was it arson, a freak accident or the work of … the devil?

See, this Tulsa landmark — The Admiral Twin, which opened in 1951 — was playing “The Last Exorcism.” It was also playing “Predators,” but those aren’t real — so we can rule them out as a suspect.

Bill French, Tulsa Fire Department public information officer, told the Tulsa World on Friday night that investigators were still not sure how the blaze started.

TMZ contacted the Tulsa Fire Department to see if they suspected a demon, someone possessed by a demon or even Satan himself had something to do with the blaze.

So far, no response.

If you’re so upset about your precious tulsa landmark burning to the ground then you had better post a link where people can go to help save this much missed landmark. Something like this…

So Proud To Live in Oklahoma – Now That FLAMING LIPS “Do You Realize” is state song

by on May.16, 2009, under MUSIC, POLITICS

I couldn’t possibly be more proud to live in Oklahoma than I am right now. For once this ass backwards state has shown an amazing amount of class. Governor Brad Henry – I would like to buy you a beer.

I'm not really an evil politician...I just play one on television.

I'm not really an evil politician...I just play one on television.

Thank you for not making those of us that live in this great state of Oklahoma look like the bunch of redneck dumb asses …. even though we really are. Way to step up and show some balls Mister Henry.

So here’s the deal…..I’m a little late getting to this story but I feel it needs to be told. Straight up……I love the Flaming Lips. I must admit I am only recently a fan. It took ten albums before I really enjoyed a Lips album all the way through but their album Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots is a work of indie rock genius.

Could the Flaming Lips be aliens from outer space or are they just from Oklahoma?

Could the Flaming Lips be aliens from outer space or are they just from Oklahoma?

Wayne Coyne and band mates have created a masterpiece in this lp and if you haven’t heard it you need to go out and get it immediately. Oh…and if you live in Oklahoma and you don’t own this album then you are nothing more than a commie bastard!!! That’s right….you’re a communist.

You see…..some of us round these parts are still a bit concerned about them there communists.

The following article from the Reuters UK website should explain what the hell I’m babbling on about.

Flaming Lips prepare for Oklahoma honor

By John Benson

CLEVELAND (Billboard) – After weeks of controversy and uncertainty, Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry is scheduled to sign an executive order Tuesday (April 28) that names the Flaming Lips’ “Do You Realize??” as the official rock song of Oklahoma.

Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne told Billboard.com that the experience has been alternately exciting and disappointing, and, in quintessential Lips fashion, always surreal.

“It just seemed to me the whole thing was absurd to begin with, and now it even becomes more absurd,” Coyne said. “Now I really feel like it’s something worth fighting for because I don’t want people to just think, ‘Oh, Oklahoma is this backward state as we suspected.'”

The Oklahoma City band has watched as its popular song (from 2002’s “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots”) won an Internet contest for best Sooner State rock song — over tracks by The All-American Rejects, Leon Russell and The Call. Over the course of a month, the Oklahoma state senate passed a measure to officially name the song the state’s rock anthem, and then the state House of Representatives rejected it because band member Michael Ivins wore a T-shirt adorned with the image of a hammer and sickle, a Communist symbol.

“You know, when it happened a couple of months back, that seemed surreal … and then when all of this (controversy) started, I think everybody’s knee-jerk reaction in the beginning was, ‘Ah, we knew it was too good to be true. That’s more of the Oklahoma we thought we were dealing with,'” Coyne said. “But it’s not true, and I think that’s the main reason I wanted to make sure I got to say something about it.

“I don’t think we’re battling against what we feel is like a backwards mentality here. It’s really just a few religious wackos that think they can tell everybody what to do. It’s not even, to me, (a matter of) Democrats versus Republicans. It’s really just a couple of these small-minded guys who are the most popular guys in their church and their little small towns. In some ways it’s so absurd, it can only make us look good and them look stupid.”

For Coyne, the best part of the ordeal is Gov. Henry’s veto of the House’s rejection of the contest results.

“There are a lot of other great things that are happening in Oklahoma,” Coyne said. “And you know for the governor to stand up and veto it and be on our side, it’s such a great story in the end.”

Coyne hinted that the band has one more wrinkle planned for Tuesday’s ceremony, when Henry will sign the executive order at the Oklahoma History Center in Oklahoma City.

“I think we’ll print up a couple of thousand of these (hammer-and-sickle) T-shirts, and everybody who comes to this thing will be wearing one,” Coyne said. “We’ll see if we can get the governor to wear one too.”

I’m just a bit upset that Hanson’s “MMM Bop” wasn’t considered. What’s up with that?

Alternative Radio In Tulsa Oklahoma Circa 1990 – 1995

by on Apr.11, 2009, under MUSIC

I found this video online and just had to post it to our blog. If you were into the alternative music scene in the early 90’s and you lived in Tulsa and you listened to the radio you probably heard this.

That was alternative radio in the early 90’s before alternative became mainstream. God, I miss that radio station. That’s Mother Theresa bringing you the newest in progressive and alternative music from the radio station KCMA The Edge Of Insanity EOI.

If you’re wondering what Theresa is doing now….well…..she seems to run this website
