Demented Dave – D&G Arts Solo Project

Back in the early days here in Tulsa OK my friend Gary Hunt and myself shared a house over by Tulsa University… We

were *like* college kids…But didn’t go to school at TU. You know what I’m saying?

Yes folks…We were right there on campus.

We were a bunch of kids thinking we would make a difference in Tulsa pop culture.. We were the underground music kids. We were busy working out our sexual frustrations and tortured youth with a Fostex 4 track recorder.

We drank beer, wrote songs, drank beer wrote songs, drank beer, wrote songs.

Do you see the pattern here?

We talked about art and dreamed big… And, you know? Had fun!

Admiral Twin Drive In – Tulsa OK

Admiral Twin Drive-In

Sept 3,2010 was a sad day for Tulsa OK. The Admiral Twin Drive In burned completely to the ground. This Tulsa icon has been around since the 1950’s.

So now when I go rolling down I244 at night I will  no longer see a movie playing in the night. It’s just pitiful.

The Admiral Twin is full of history and was featured in “The Outsiders” by Francis Ford Coppola.  It’s been seen everywhere. That is a very popular movie.  Lord have mercy folks!

As I write this post the more I remember about that groovy place:

  • I partied there. (many times)
  • I snuck in there. (Trunk)
  • I saw the Exorcist there (first run)
  • 2nd time I ever kissed a girl was there. (she broke up right after lol)
  • My friends back yard was the movie. (Free movies)
  • On the school bus I remember seeing the film crew and vintage cars in place for the filming of “The Outsiders” (daily)

Anybody have similar memories… Thousands I’m sure.

Come on now!
