I am a criminal lawyer in Oklahoma who escapes the sadness of my work any way possible, including an untrained enjoyment of art. I recently focused on the set of art deco courthouses in Oklahoma and did a bit on them in my occasional blog: http://littlebluenews.blogspot.com/2011/07/courthouse-deco-i-often-notice-that.html . I wish for someone to train a camera again on the courthouses, particularly the interiors which are beautiful but in varying stages of upkeep. I hope you all find this interesting, if not professionally exact.

This musical piece is more for dancing than “The Rabbit is Late For Tea.” It is a “World Rave” because while the beat never changes, the music tends to float around the globe. The photos used for this piece are all from Tulsa’s great Art Deco architecture, with a Tulsa surprise thrown in at the end. Those of you that saw “The Outsiders” will get it. Enjoy.
Great video on Will Rogers High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma — featuring an interview with the actual architect, Joseph Koberling. The school opened in 1939, four years after the plane crash that killed famed humorist & Oklahoman Will Rogers.
