First Friday Paseo | VW Jamaica Ad | American Idol OKC | Puppy Bowl! | GB 30 Rock | Johnny Cash | Dancing Aime | Andy Cohen is mad at Lord Grantham!

Happy Thursday! There is so much on my mind I had to do another blog. Here’s what’s up:

First Friday Fashion at JRB Art at the Elms… I’m trying to encourage everyone, including men, to wear hats. Bonus: playing the hat game! Did you ever play that? It’s like musical chairs but you are taking the hat off the person to the right of you. Hair gets messed up.

I love the VW Jamaica ad. Mostly  because I think it says ‘lighten up corporate America.’  No racists mon! No worries – oney bun will com soon mon!”

Set your DVRs tonight for American Idol with the final auditions  being held in Oklahoma City. Fingers crossed they show great singers and excellent city scenes! PS. I was at the Aerosmith concert when Ryan and — came on stage. Wonder if that will be included?

Don’t forget about PUPPY BOWL on Sunday!

Another DVR setting heads-up, last night for 30 Rock! Here are other articles:

Johnny Cash is getting his own stamp. I love this clip of him singing “Ring of Fire.”

I love when mascots get together and do silly things. Imagine how much I love this: “Japan sets world record for most dancing mascots.” Not as familiar with anime characters however….

Love the way this reporter handles a live shot crasher down in New Orleans. I mean, the reporter knew what she was getting in to right?

Andy Cohen is FURIOUS with Lord Grantham of Downton Abbey! He’s made him the Jackhole of the day twice and has started a Twitter has tag #cora & #teamcora. He understand he’s not real but still … he’s mad!

Shoe Gallery Super Bowl Sale ! You’re welcome!

Stairs | Sandi Krakowski | Photo Tips | Phillip Phillips | Ingraham out | Suraj | Regina Murphy | Simply Hired dud jobs

Happy Wednesday! Is everyone keeping their holiday invites in order? I totally messed up on a Facebook invite event last Friday that I really wanted to go to. Maybe I shouldn’t turn off those invite notifications. BTW: December 6, 7, 8 & 9 have so much going on for OKC. Refer to my calendar of events.

Here’s what’s on my mind:

OKC Thunder shirts possibly the sure gift for wayward Okies who still want to show pride. Seen at Blue 7’s Myriad Gardens Pop-up Shops

Congratulations on this wonderful Slice Magazine article for the ladies at Studio Six in the Paseo Arts District. Regina Murphy, Mary Nickell and Sue Moss Sullivan are highlighted. You can see a show on Regina’s works at JRB Art at the Elms, opening December 7  during First Friday Gallery Walk and of course Studio Six will be open on First Friday as well.

I was really happy Tony and Melissa won Dancing with the Stars All Stars last night. I was more happy for Tony. I’ve seen him go through all those dud celebrities and be so patient with them.

The Little Willie Triple Dog Dare stair climbing challenge is this Saturday in downtown with three buildings – Leadership Square, Oklahoma Tower, then the other side of Leadership Square is inviting. I want to say I’ll do it. Stairs kill me! Like – little flights of stairs kill me. Great idea!

I’ve been on a 30-day free trial for this blog guru Sandi Krakowski. Pretty good so far. Check back with me in 26 days. She’s really wacky. She’s like me but on super 10-hour Energy drink!

10 really amazing tips on taking great photos. Each tip from an expert photographer.

Steve Lackmeyer is so on target with this NewsOK article on MAPS3. I remember when I was at the Chamber during MAPS1 and there was just such negative publicity then everything opened and then it was the greatest idea ever! Just chill out everyone please. Patience is a virtue. I’ve been there a lot of times. Don’t rush architects, engineers and construction. It’s like the ole’ measure 500 times, build once motto.

I’ve quit watching American Idol years ago but I sure do like the latest winner’s song, Phillip Phillips’ Gone.

Laura Ingraham is leaving her current radio distributor. No mention of a new company sooooo, Tyler Media – this is your out. Turn KOKC AM into more self-improvement, live your life better programming… Maybe even local show about great businesses in OKC?

Life of Pi or Lincoln? I’m not one for period films nor films where animals drown but … I saw this article on the Life of Pi actor Suraj Sharma and became intrigued.

Tony Bennett will play himself on 30 Rock this Thursday. Speaking of NBC Thursdays, Rainn Wilson posted on his Facebook page this spoof of the Two and a Half Men star Angus T. Jones trashing his show except he uses it for The Office. Love him!

Just for fun, I put a tick on Simply Hired alerts for PR/Marketing/Social Media jobs in OKC … this is sad: Customer Service Rep – Data Entry Online Typist. How does this job have anything to do with that criteria? And that’s like – all there is. 

Gift idea tip: Do you have a true Oklahoman who moved to San Francisco that has an amazing job with Google and has everything? The OKC Thunder shirt seen above in the Blue 7 section at the Myriad Gardens new Pop-Up Shops concept got a like from her. So I’m thinking a lot of things OKC Thunder, especially for wayward Okies are the sure thing.
