Flaming Lips Are All Smiles

It's official:
With more than 300 people at the Oklahoma History Center, Gov. Brad Henry signed an executive order Tuesday proclaiming the Flaming Lips’ "Do You Realize??” the state’s official rock song.

"The Flaming Lips are great ambassadors for the state of Oklahoma, all over the world, and they are fiercely loyal to the great state of Oklahoma,” he said before signing the order.

"Fiercely loyal." I like that phrase.

Despite the controversy and lead singer Wayne Coyne's silly slap at religion, the group has never given off anything but good vibes about the state of Oklahoma. A class act, all the way.

Good for them. Good for us.

(BTW, my first link about this story was going to go to The Journal Record until I remembered how they make their stories go down the memory hole after only a few days. That's no way to reach readers, Journal Record.)
