  • Perspectives from the fringe: On new records from Hop Along and Action Bronson

    BY MATT CARNEY | Published: Wed, Jun 17, 2015

    HBO Now’s been a total gamechanger in the Carney household of one. After guzzling (or rather, re-guzzling) “Game of Thrones,” my attention turned to “The Wire,” the network’s much-acclaimed and ethically knotty mid-aughts police drama, where the good guys aren’t so obvious to spot and the drug dealers keep pet fish. (Seriously, how is it possible not to empathize with somebody who cares as much about his fish as Wee-Bey does?) Like a Flying Lotus record it’s dense, a thick strata of show formed by its many, many characters’ thin layers of perspective. But the overwhelming volume of differing perspectives on crime and policing in Baltimore isn’t what makes “The Wire” great.

  • Unconfined: Interdisciplinary artist Molly O'Connor speaks out

    Ebony Iman Dallas, ArtSpeaks writer/designer | Published: Wed, Jun 17, 2015

    Why limit your creativity to one discipline — one box? Why not limit-less? These are the questions that come to mind post observing interdisciplinary artist Molly O’Connor perform as Emily Kzany, the teenage Goth poet, and now witnessing her breadth of work lining the walls of The Project Box. Her latest show, “Relics from the Akashic Prairie” is on display through June 27 at 3003 Paseo, OKC. “Relics from the Akashic Prairie is a body of work inspired by dreams, spiritual readings, random thoughts and moments of synchronicity,” O’Connor said. If you have not had a chance to check it out, here is a preview straight from O’Connor.

    This is my last column for LOOKatOKC. I started with the magazine more than five years ago. A lot changes in five years. You meet new people and you lose some. Your favorite hangouts change and priorities change. Basically, in generic terms, you grow up. Here’s some of my favorite columns over the years. Some will be outdated and some will still hit home to you. I just thank you so much for grabbing this magazine and turning to my page. I care that you cared. Secret Bars Back in July of 2010, I wrote about my never-ending quest for Oklahoma City to have a secret bar. “Finding secret bars in New York City is like a scavenger hunt for adults.

  • The Patriarch is turning a home into a big house party

    BY LACEY LETT, For LOOKatOKC | Published: Wed, Apr 29, 2015

    A solid house party comes equipped with good music, beer and enough people to bump into for a few conversations. That’s the aim for The Patriarch - Craft Beer House and Lawn, a new bar located in downtown Edmond right off Main Street, in a 112-year-old house. Patriarch manager Michael Cotton wants the house to feel like home. “We really wanted to be a place that’s about community where great conversations are happening,” he said. “We want there to be this communal atmosphere.” More commonly known as the Hunt House, the home was built in 1903 by Citizens Bank of Edmond co-founder William Hunt.

  • Frank’s Wurst keeps getting better for owner

    BY LACEY LETT, For LOOKatOKC | Published: Fri, Feb 27, 2015

    Who said watching TV rots your brain? It inspired it for one local food cart owner. “I had a healthy addiction with the Food Network and the Travel Channel,” said Kody Hookstra, owner of Frank’s Wurst. “I became obsessed with mobile food.” Then three years ago, his obsession became a reality with Frank’s Wurst, a hot dog food cart based in Oklahoma City. It’s a job he wanted since traveling with his former band Glister. “Playing in a band we got to go to Austin a lot, and eating at a food truck was one of our favorite things to do,” he said. Frank’s Wurst started as a food cart, but expanded in Feburary to serve food from the 51st Street Speakeasy kitchen, 1114 NW 51st St.
