My month in Instagrams – May 2013

This is something new I’m going to start. I’ve become an Instagram fanatic! I think these images can sum up my month’s experience better than words! But here are words to summarize:

First Friday in Paseo, a KFOR interview with Ali, (@amanchor), Kentucky Derby, Ladybugs, Silo Art Project, Eggman, Captain Lucky the foster dog, Amtrak Heartland Flyer to Ft. Worth, remembering Carolyn Hill, saying goodbye to Camp Cimarron, a sudden heartbreaking death, Memorial Day weekend at the lake, and an insane weather month.

I encourage you to get on Instagram today! Look for me @lesliesokc!

It’s the week of the Festival! Red Earth, deadCENTER, Prix de West & Charlie Christian, plus Paseo, Shakespeare, Running, Kenny Wayne Shepherd …

It’s a magical time of year in Oklahoma City! It’s the WEEKEND OF THE FESTIVAL! I mean, there’s just something for EVERYONE! deadCENTER Film Festival starts Wednesday, Red Earth Festival (love the parade & grand entry), the Charlie Christian International Music Festival and the Prix de West start on Friday. Always happy for First Friday Gallery Walk in the Paseo Arts District. A lot of people are talking about the Kenny Wayne Shepherd concert at the Diamond Ballroom, which is a benefit concert for the tornado victims. I’ve included the Jerry Jeff Walker concert at Riverwind on Friday… just reminds me of the days when I lived in Raleigh, North Carolina. My mom and I just loved that Up Against the Wall Redneck Mother song and we were anything but redneck! It was the 70s. We leaned the happy hippie style.

Please enjoy. There is so much to do in this town! Don’t ever get baffled. Let me help you! Let me… tell you where to go!

Be sure to tune into Eggman in the Morning with Shawn Carey on KZLS 99.7FM The True Oldies Channel Wednesdays at 7:30am!

Oooohhhh mah goodness! Wow! So much happening this weekend and … IN MAY! Here’s all that I found. If I’m missing something please let me know. Even though this posts out on my social media platforms I can still go in and update my blog posts. Please do not hesitate to email leslie@lesliesokc.com. My sources are EVERYTHING: People, newspapers, radio, tv, internet, FACEBOOK INVITES (19 this week alone!), eblasts and more … I think it’s safe to say that we’re all great promoters of our individual events. We take such great pride. Okay, enough! It’s late on Tuesday and I have to get up and be ON for my Eggman in the Morning on KZLS 99.7 the True Oldies channel. I kind of flubbed up my interview! Can’t be on all the time!

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!
