Those TPS reports can wait. Check out this local list-o-links first and improve your day by at least 94 percent.

Mustache party! The Max Retropub is hosting one this Saturday night. And get this – best female mustache is a category in the mustache competition portion of the evening. It’s nice to know that The Max cares enough to create avenues through which I can succeed.

It’s Midnight Movie weekend at Circle Cinema, and you know what that means – an awesomely bad movie with a side of terrific popcorn and watching said movie in your jammies. It’s perfect. If you’ve never been, make plans to go. The film this weekend is the 1975 cult classic Death Race 2000.

Live with a pint-sized shutterbug? Check out the Tulsa Kids’ Photo Challenge, hosted by Tulsa Children’s Museum. Kids snap shots of what they think makes Tulsa an awesome place to live, select their two favorites and submit them to a Playologist at the Big Adventure Exhibit now open at Tulsa Historical Society. The photos will be printed and professionally mounted at THS in the exhibit for everyone to see. Neat, right?

Read this the next time your child puts Skittles up his/her nose. And feel better.

Baby bunnies! Baby goats! I mean, what more do you need in this life?

A list of one-tank road trips…since it’s getting all spring-like up in here and all.

In case you missed it: It was a naked kind of Sunday in downtown Tulsa. Which hurts worse: To be tased when you’re fully clothed, or to be tased when you’re naked? There’s at least one young man who knows for sure.

File under surprising aspects of roadside attractions: Did you know that there’s a small concrete-and-fiberglass mushroom forest behind the Blue Whale and the ARK building in Catoosa? Well, thanks to Red Fork Hippie Chick, you do now.

Facebook confusion: Ever get lost when trying to distinguish between Facebook groups and pages? Saxum PR helps to sets the record straight.

No Phones, No Fools, No Frets: The J.J. Behind J.J. Gourmet Burger Cafe, from Steve Gerkin of This Land Press. Which is why I feel even more special that J.J. gave me this (with a gift bow stuck on the side) during my most recent visit to his restaurant.

Also from This Land, check out this piece by roller derby gal Clara Nipper, a.k.a. Cat Owta Hell. It’ll make you want to fight. Or work out, at least.

The new Blue Rose Cafe: It’s kinda popular.

Tulsa is a wrestling town. Here’s a new blog on the subject to prove it.

Cage match fighting over Thin Mints: I wouldn’t lie to you. Especially not during Girl Scout Cookie season.

Here comes the Tulsa Art Studio Tour, one of my favorite artsy-fartsy events in T-Town all year long. Make plans now to be there April 9 and 10.
