[I] got introduced by Chad [Livingston, of the Bricktown Water Taxis] when they were all at LiT during one of those ice storms in early 2007. I ineptly asked how OKC might attract more folks like Wayne to stay in Oklahoma City. I wanted to know what kept a clearly creative class person like him to stay in what has traditionally been a conservative city. After all, Wayne Coyne didn’t just stay in OKC to this day he lives in one of the most impoverished neighborhoods just west of downtown Classen Ten Penn and is helping stabilize the area from deteriorating any further.
So how do I summarize Wayne’s response? Things are as they are …
Oddly, looking back now, that actually makes sense.
It’s the way it’s always been, if you think about it.
