Phish’s Trey Anastasio Briefly Appears In ‘Broad City’ During Abbi’s Bad Mushroom Trip

first_imgOn Wednesday night, Comedy Central aired a new episode of its critically acclaimed scripted series, Broad City. Titled “Mushrooms” (Season 4, Episode 4), this latest installment in the series sees the show’s two protagonists—Ilana Wexler (played by Ilana Glazer) and Abbi Abrams (played by Abbi Jacobson)—enjoying a day off, with the show opening to the girls eating psychedelic mushrooms and following their (mis)adventures as the day unfolds. As their trip kicks in, the episode takes an unexpected turn, eschewing the show’s traditional acting for a trippy, Day-Glo animated sequence created by frequent collaborator and artist Mike Perry.Broad City References Phish, Disco Biscuits, String Cheese Incident And More In New EpisodeThis Broad City Episode Was Chock Full Of Phish ReferencesAs the trip begins to tail off, the Broad City episode returns to its standard live-action format, though psychedelic special effects consistently appear throughout the rest of the show as the girls’ trips wind down. Toward the tail-end of “Mushrooms”, Abbi smokes some pot, which restarts her tripping and kicks off a nightmarishly bad trip. As she tries to calm herself down, Abbi reminds herself of things that soothe her (Oprah, Mark Ruffalo, flutes), and once she is reminded of “music”, images of Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio quickly flash on the screen.This is not the first time that Broad City has given subtle nods to the jam-band community. Abbi Jacobson, one of the show’s lead actresses and co-creators, has been a “phan” for quite some time, telling Relix in a past interview, “I used to go to a lot of jam and Phish shows. . . . That’s what we did on the weekends—we’d see shows.” In an episode first aired last summer, the show’s character Abbi alluded to her jam-band days, namedropping Phish, RatDog, Dark Star Orchestra, the Disco Biscuits, and String Cheese Incident, and Broad City has previously quoted lines from Phish’s “Cavern” and “Run Like An Antelope.”You can watch Trey Anastasio’s super-brief cameo on Broad City last night during Abbi’s terrible mushroom trip below, or watch the episode in its entirety on Comedy Central’s website here.Video Playerhttps://liveforlivemusic.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/abbi-broad-city-trey.mp400:0000:0000:24Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.last_img read more

Midwest City Safety Evan Fields Cuts List to Five

Three-star defensive back Evan Fields, a rising senior from Midwest City, Okla., has named his top five schools which he released on twitter. Among his top options includes K-State, Oklahoma State, Arizona State, Mississippi State, and Illinois.https://twitter.com/Evan4_/status/802273235131723776The Cowboys entered the conversation late in the recruiting process, and earned an official visit earlier this season which he took alongside well-known Cowboy signee Tramonda Moore, who is currently at a junior college.“That’s family,” Fields told PFB of his connection with Moore, adding that he “loved” his visit to Oklahoma State, and that “it felt like home”.Whether that’s by blood or by friendship, I don’t know. But Tramonda isn’t playing his cards close to the vest in recruiting Fields. Here’s what he tweeted at Fields after he released his top five schools.#GoPokes ? https://t.co/0PQ3nxLA6h— Tramonda Moore⏳™ (@TramondaMoore) November 25, 2016The caveat in Fields list, though, is the fine print at the bottom: List can change with new offers.Fields has had a monster senior year, and it took OSU surpsingly midway through the season before extending an offer — likely to make sure he was back to full health. Now, though, there’s chatter that Oklahoma could get involved late, even though an offer has not been extended. The Sooners seem to have several other prospects on their board, before making a decision on whether to pull the trigger on Fields or not.Oklahoma State recently added a commitment at safety with Texas’ Trey Sterling, but the Pokes also lost the pledge of Tyon Merchant, so Fields would likely secure that final scholarship at safety should he land on the Cowboys. With signing day less than 3 months away, it will be interesting to see if teams jump in late or if he elects to stay with his core 5.last_img read more

Oklahoma State Has Covered Three of Last Five Bedlam Point Spreads

first_img2016?-11Oklahoma Year Final ScoreLineFavored Team 200749-17 OU-11.5Oklahoma 201438-35 (OT) OSU-19.5Oklahoma 200927-0 OU-7.5Oklahoma 200861-41 OU-10.5Oklahoma Oklahoma opened as a 13.5 point lead over the Oklahoma State Cowboys for 2016 Bedlam, a line that many Pokes fans felt was high. The line is down to -11 as of Monday, and may continue to fall as we get closer to the big game on Saturday.We know that in its last nine Bedlam games, OSU is 2-7. I picked 2007 because that is the year Mike Gundy really started to get all his own players on the field (and we could only find spreads going back to that year).You probably knew that OSU record already, because Boone Pickens made us all painfully aware of it. But what have the lines been compared to the final scores? Has OSU normally covered? Let’s take a look. 201144-10 OSU-3.5Oklahoma Statecenter_img 201558-23 OU-7.5Oklahoma 201251-48 OU-6Oklahoma 201047-41 OU-3Oklahoma State 201333-24 OU-9.5Oklahoma State Oklahoma has actually covered the spread six times out of the last nine Bedlam meetings, but only twice out of five times since 2011. Sure, they’ve won several close games, in 2010, 2012, and 2013 (Gilbert caught it), but recent history shows us there’s a decent chance the Cowboys will beat the line this week.Which they’ll need to substantially if they want to win the their second Big 12 title after playing for it for the fourth time in six years.Tough to see OU as a 2-TD favorite when #okstate has the better receivers, defense, special teams and much better QB.— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguy) November 27, 2016 While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.

The Reload: Junior Day Offers and Notable Visitors

It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future.

Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. The Reload is PFB’s recruiting recap, catching you up to speed with the latest Oklahoma State recruiting news with an ear to the ground for what to expect in the future.Junior Day OffersAmong the many sporting events taking place in Stillwater on Saturday was an important recruiting event that takes place under Mike Gundy’s watch. Generally close to 100 recruits make their way from all over the state and surrounding area to visit the facility, meet with coaches, and of course go to the basketball game. It’s an official visit of sorts, minus the fact that OSU pays for it.Coaches generally take this time to hand out scholarship offers to some of their targets on the board, and Saturday was no exception. Here’s who Oklahoma State offered, along with a list of visiting prospects.Jordan Kelley — Nose TackleYou’ll never believe it, but Union produced another Division I talent in Kelley. Shocker, right? The offer to the junior defensive tackle/defensive end is his second. Tulsa offered earlier in 2016. Now Oklahoma State.Listed at 6-foot-3 240, Kelley is one of the most disruptive defensive lineman I’ve seen in person. He’s a bully in the middle and with his combination of size and agility, he reminds me a little of Vincent Taylor. Just an athletic freak for a player of his size.Julon Williams — AthleteMike Gundy loves him some dual-threat quarterbacks who have versatility to play other positions. That’s Williams’ profile in a nutshell. With his experience playing at the quarterback position as a supreme runner and passer, he’s a playmaker that can be slotted at any position. So he’s an athlete Oklahoma State is willing to take a chance on, extending an offer during his visit.Rated as a three-star recruit at 5-foot-10 188 pounds, I’d like to think this offer may be as a defensive back/athlete. But the reality is that he could play on both sides of the ball with his versatility.Byron Hobbs — Outside linebackerOffer No. 1 is in for Fort Worth (Texas) Eastern Hills outside linebacker Byron Hobbs, and OSU is first in line.6-foot-4, 205 pounds? From Fort Worth? And still hasn’t garnered interest elsewhere? I’m betting that changes. So I like this offer.Trey Stratford — Offensive Lineman6-foot-4 three-star offensive lineman Trey Stratford, a prospect from Allen, Texas, was offered yesterday.Being from Allen — one of the most dominant high school football programs in Texas — he’s not been a well-kept secret. Baylor, Mississippi State and TCU have all joined the list since the year began, and Texas, Ole Miss and Houston also have standing offers to the offensive tackle.Blake Barron — Inside LinebackerAnother first offer out the door on Saturday. This one to unranked inside linebacker prospect Blake Barron of Rockwall, Texas.Oklahoma State is now pursuing both inside linebackers from Rockwall. The OSU staff offered 2018 linebacker Alston Orji, a four-star recruit, earlier in 2016. Barron is an underrated backer, though, and at 6-foot-1 218 pounds I think he has good size at the inside backer position.Nic McTear — Tight endNic McTear picked up his first Division I offer with OSU’s on Saturday. From Frisco, Texas, McTear will likely be a steal as an unranked recruit right now. He has good size for a tight end, he has very good leaping ability, and he’s a solid blocker — and important characteristic OSU needs for its cowboy back position.Rafiti Ghirmai — Offensive LinemanAnother Frisco native with an offer on junior day: rising offensive lineman Rafiti Ghirmai. A three-star offensive tackle, Ghirmai already has 12 Division I offers and counting — 9 since Jan. 1.As everyone knows, offensive tackle is a position of high importance for OSU. And even if it gets solidified this season, it’s always smart to look to the future. Ghirmai would be a nice one to pick up down the road and can take care of QB Spencer Sanders blindside.Byron Hanspard — Wide ReceiverFor yet another cycle, Oklahoma State is seeking the commitment of a DeSoto wide receiver. Three-star Byron Hanspard is the latest:Also on his offer list: Northwestern, Houston, Texas Tech, Arkansas, Colorado and Texas Tech.Gemon Green — Defensive backAnother DeSoto product, Gemon Green has been offered by Oklahoma State as a defensive back. The latest defensive back from DeSoto to pick OSU was A.J. Green in 2016.With 8 offers already, OSU is getting in on the ground floor. Green has legit size for a defensive back — a trait OSU loves. And he’s a lanky athlete that can evolve into a lockdown defender.German Green — Defensive backALERT. We have another brother target. German, the brother of Gemon, happens to be twins with him. German is an inch taller than Gemon.OTHER VISITORSTaye Barber – QB/ATHWayne Jones – SafetyTommy Bush – WRTre Adams -WRParker Cupp – OLRylan Mcquarters – ATHAdrian Wilson – WR/ATHSean Shaw, Jr. – WRlast_img read more

Mike Gundy Has the Opening He Needs, Will Oklahoma State Capitalize?

first_imgCharlie Weis’ last season as head coach of Notre Dame was in 2009. He went on to become the Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator and Florida offensive coordinator after that before taking the head job at Kansas. Cincinnati’s Brian Kelly took the job in South Bend for the 2010 season. It was a position approximately 12,000 people were rumored for including Bob Stoops who had just had his worst season since 1999 as OU went 8-5.A fun game to play is, “How many Big 12 titles would Oklahoma State have if Bob Stoops had taken the Notre Dame job in 2010 instead of Brian Kelly?”Nobody knows the answer, but you could reasonably make the case that OSU would have four of those things, and nobody would really bat an eye. That staggering alternate reality has just merged with our present actual reality to create a future for Oklahoma State that looks as opulent as a future has ever looked.AdChoices广告I wrote on Wednesday after Bob Stoops retired that I think he made Oklahoma State better as a football program. I truly and vociferously believe that. I will always believe that. Mike Gundy had no idea what he was doing when he took over — no head coach ever does — and Stoops provided a blueprint for how to be awesome in the state of Oklahoma. The result is that OSU has, outside of that wily late-season game in Stillwater or Norman, more or less met OU stride for stride over the last decade.I also think Gundy is going to eject from this business in more or less the same manner Stoops did. He is going to be 50 in 65 days, is not a lifer, has more money than Wild Bill can ever charge him for and has submerged himself into a grind that is both 1. Unknown to coaches of yesteryear and 2. Likely unhealthy for a human being to withstand in the long term.Gundy will hang around for one final monstrous contract, negotiate for some Bass Pro stock, groom somebody new, hand over the reins much like Stoops and drive his tractor west down Highway 51 towards the setting sun. This is how it will go.What happens in the interim, however, will define his legacy.Gundy has won 104 games in his career at Oklahoma State. He is its most successful football coach by 10 miles and is on the Mt. Rushmore of OSU coaches (and maybe people) generally. Off the top of my head: Gundy, Gary Ward, Mike Holder, John Smith, Mr. Iba and Eddie Sutton. I don’t know who you’re taking off the mountain of that list of six, but it probably shouldn’t be Gundy. He has been the best coach in the most important sport at a time when the competition in that sport has never been deeper.And now he has a chance to ice the cake.There is an inane faction of Oklahoma State fans undeterred by the fact that Oklahoma State has played for four of the last six Big 12 championships (and five of seven if you include 2010 when the Bedlam winner went on to the Big 12 title game). This is an enormous deal. Playing for one conference title is difficult. Doing it four times in six years is a preposterous mark of consistency OSU has never known on the football field.But Gundy also only has one Big 12 championship to his name after 12 seasons of coaching the Pokes. A singular wondrous night in December 2011 in which Brandon Weeden, Justin Blackmon and Joe Randle put to bed all the demons and all the ghosts of so many fruitless Bedlam gatherings. OSU should have won in 2013, could have won in 2015 and outright put No. 10 in Bob Stoops rain coat pocket in 2016.It’s a new time for the Big 12, though. The head coaches of Texas, Baylor and OU — those teams have won or shared 12 of the last 13 titles (the only team to win it outright in that time was OSU in 2011) — have a combined 0 wins at their current schools.The logic, specifically as it relates to OU, is as follows: Unless you believe that 33-year-old Lincoln Riley will be 100 percent as good as (or better than) the best football coach in Big 12 history (Bob Stoops), then you must believe some sort of drop off is coming for the Boomers. If that is true, then the conclusion for me is that Oklahoma State is going to have a chance to win a handful of Big 12 titles in the coming years, starting with 2017.Think about it. How much worse would OU have had to be since 2010 for OSU to have just 2-3 more titles? 10 percent worse? 15 percent? 5 percent? We can all agree (OU fans included) that even a minuscule step down from the crimson and cream would have meant a largesse for the Pokes. They are currently (and have been) next in line to Stoops’ throne.Hey, maybe Riley is the next Stoops. Maybe he will rock. But the chasm between telling Baker Mayfield to roll out and hit 260-pound tight ends and leading one of the premiere football programs in a hundreds-of-millions-of-dollars industry is wide enough that I’m not sure even Uncle Rico could hit the other side on a post route. He’s one year older than I am. I can barely run a blog, and this guy is going to not skip a beat as the coach of OU? I’m dubious.And maybe Tom Herman will flip Texas and they will intercept the scepter that Oklahoma State fans badly want. But Texas has proven time and time again that it is a conglomerate that looks nice to investors and does well financially but has trouble letting real change wash over itself. Texas, might I remind you, has one more Big 12 title than Baylor in the history of the conference.So everything is coming up for Gundy in 2017 and beyond. He rode Stoops’ rising tide, and now he is arguably the best head coach in the league (depending on how you feel about Bill Snyder and Gary Patterson). He is in a position to take the mantle from Stoops. This season is big, though. If Oklahoma State can perform the way most of us think it will perform, it will put a stake in the ground. The Big 12 title could run through Stillwater for the foreseeable future.And that’s a nice reward for the Mullet Man after a decade of labor. He spent the first six years laying a foundation and the next six building his kingdom. Hopefully in this final six(ish) he’ll get to enjoy the fruits of his effort because in the wake of Stoops success and OU’s renaissance as a program, a Big 12 title or three would be mighty tasty.

Oklahoma Safety Will Sunderland Charged With Felony Burglary; Pleads Not Guilty to Misdemeanor

first_imgSooners junior safety Will Sunderland was charged with felony burglary on Wednesday for a robbery of two baseball players’ dorm room in March, according to a report from The Oklahoman.A warrant for his arrest was issued Wednesday.Sunderland was already serving an indefinite suspension from the team after being charged with concealing stolen property—a misdemeanor —after CDR Electronics in Oklahoma City discovered he sold them a stolen XBOX One and PlayStation 4 gaming systems the same day he allegedly stole the gaming systems back in March. He pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor charge and posted a $2,000 bond on Wednesday.AdChoices广告Sunderland was recruited by both OU and OSU as a standout out of Midwest City but chose the Sooners early in his senior year.Entering his junior season in Norman, Sunderland was projected as the starting free safety for the Sooners. But with the latest developments off the field, it could seriously put his future with the program in doubt and force Oklahoma to rely on a very inexperienced secondary.
