[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.
