The Best content on Netflix for your procrastination by skyler o s b u r n
e nte rtai nm ent r ev i e w e r
I’m always baffled when I hear people complaining about the lack of quality entertainment on Netflix. There are undoubtedly hordes of trash occupying the site’s precious catalog space, but to think there aren’t silver linings around those black clouds is silly. Here are a few streaming titles begging for your unavoidable procrastination. Colleen Ballinger and her YouTube personality Miranda Sings have generated the new series “Haters Back Off,” a cringe-comedy that has drawn divided critical responses. The similarly absurd Christopher Guest has returned to
NetFLIX’s “Luke cage”
his successful mockumentary format for “Mascots,” a close look at the inner lives underneath the giant foam heads that inspire legions of sports fans. If those programs don’t quite scratch your comedic itch, there are also new standup specials from Russell Peters, Cedric the Entertainer, Ali Wong and Patton Oswalt.
Anyone in drastic need of Henry Fonda’s daunting screen presence can fill that void with John Ford’s “Young Mr. Lincoln,” about Honest Abe’s early days as an Illinois lawyer. Also available is “Once Upon a Time in the West,” Sergio Leone’s magnificent western epic about the encroachment
of industrialization into the lawless haunts of outlaws and antiheroes. If you’re inclined to seek out further westerns or films about modernity, then look no further. The Coen Brothers’ “No Country for Old Men” and Paul Thomas Anderson’s “There Will Be Blood” are at the ready and eager to prove 2007 might have been the greatest year in cinema history. Foreign cinema is thriving on Netflix, and there are no better examples of this than the Holocaust drama “Phoenix.” I began writing a review of this film last year, but my words fell flat again and again. There is no describing the ache in “Phoenix,” the depth
of inhumanity its director Christian Petzold explored. Other available foreign language masterpieces include “Two Days, One Night,” “About Elly” and “Winter Sleep,” which are realist examinations of emotional distance, depression and humanity’s capacity for perseverance. If your interests are more dramatic, there is still plenty on offer. “Jessica Jones” was Marvel’s best foray into liveaction entertainment so far. The company is looking to expand on that success with “Luke Cage,” a spinoff promising plenty of great action alongside an earnest look at contemporary race relations. On a similar note, director
Ava DuVernay’s new documentary “13th” is a haunting and incisive history of the American penal system’s patterns of racial discrimination. Hopefully, this short list of suggestions has provided you with many hours of worthwhile entertainment. As long as Netflix is around, we will never need any other means of putting off preparations for that 15-page final. Skyler Osburn is an English junior with an emphasis in screen studies from Enid.

OSU Institute of technology on Unhallowed ground BY hayd en bar b er
ne ws editor
KMULGEE — Orphans, soldiers, prisoners of war and Oklahoma State University students have walked atop the 230-acre plot of land in northeastern Okmulgee. The OSU Institute of Technology is not on hallowed ground. In 1892, the Creek tribe opened the Orphan Home at Okmulgee. About 50 years later, during World War II, the U.S. Army opened Camp Gruber, which served as a hospital for wounded U.S. soldiers and a work camp for German prisoners of war. In 2016, about 3,000 Cowboys and Cowgirls roam the area. The land’s history is a story few know about, including some of those who have spent their whole lives in Okmulgee. Pat Singleton, an OSUIT student life staff assistant, has lived in the city for decades. “I didn’t realize the rich heritage,” Singleton said. “But I don’t know, it kinda gives you a sense of pride.” The high fence enclosing the prisoners is gone, but stories of the past linger around campus. Toward the center of the university, the Hospitality Services and Culinary Arts Building rests atop the same dirt the Glennan General Hospital’s morgue did 70 years ago. Some students believe the building is haunted, said OSUIT archivist Beth Kieffer. “There are a couple of buildings that you can still
see the bare bones of ramps from the old barracks, but the majority of them are all gone,” Kieffer said. The only structure that stands from the days when OSUIT was Camp Gruber is the water tower on the north side of campus, a daunting rock construction that has been visibly weathered through the decades. The majority of POWs came from North Africa after the Afrika Korps surrendered to U.S. soldiers who, battered and restless, brought the prisoners of war to Glennan General Hospital, Kieffer said. POWs and wounded U.S. soldiers from across Oklahoma funneled into the Okmulgee site. At the camp’s peak, 20,000 German prisoners of war walked the Oklahoma grounds among work camps in Okmulgee, Alva, presentday El Reno, Fort Sill, McAlester and Tonkawa, according to the Oklahoma Historical Society. The medical personnel at Camp Gruber was composed of U.S. and German soldiers. Prisoners of war were treated relatively well; they were assigned tasks from watchmaking to helping plow the land at neighboring farms. When the war ended Sept. 2, 1945, the prisoners were freed, and in 1946, Henry Bennett, then-Oklahoma A&M College president, bought the abandoned land for $1. The veterans got to working and learning, said Joanne Willett, a clerk in the registrar’s office who has worked at OSUIT for 24 years.

“We are a unique part of the OSU system by design,” Erwin said. “And our history set the stage for the now 70 years of preparing a technologically sophisticated workforce, beginning after World War II.” Like Kieffer, Erwin said it’s not eerie to walk around campus and think about the people who walked before she did. She said it adds a certain character to the university that cannot be matched. “It’s life-affirming,” Erwin Courtesy of Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology said. “Everywhere you walk The OSU Institute of Technology stands on the land of a military hospital and POW camp. on this campus, you can feel ing or baking and culinary. trophies that fill the shelves “Because OSU is a landa great sense of gravity, and grant institution and this was They did all these things on date to the 1940s when vetperhaps there’s a kind of erans played basketball and the regional campus, and so campus.” unity with those who have Kieffer said walking baseball for the university. there’s some stipulations as walked before you.

The doors will be open 3-8 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Tulsa Comic Con will feature several celebrity guests, including headliners Sebastian Stan (“Captain America: The Winter Solider”), William Shatner (“Star
Trek” and “Boston Legal”), Michael Rooker (“Walking Dead” and “Guardians of The Galaxy”) and Henry Winkler (“Happy Days” and “Royal Pain”). Some of the celebrities will attend only certain days, such as Stan, who is attending only Saturday and Sunday, and Shatner, who is coming only Friday. Along with the headliners, Jason David Frank of “The Power Rangers,” Evanna Lynch of the “Harry Potter” series, Christy Carlson Romano of “Even Stevens” and “Kim

Several notable comic book artists and creators are attending, as well, such as Neal Adams (“Batman” and “Green Lantern”), Tom Cook (“He-Man” and “Superfriends”) and Michael Golden (“Batman” and “Spider-Man”). Not only does Tulsa Comic Con provide Oklahomans the opportunity to meet popular celebrities, but it also allows a community of cosplayers to gather. Although some smaller conventions have popped up in Oklahoma, Tulsa Comic Con is the biggest conven-
tion in the state every year. At the end of Saturday’s programming, there will be a cosplay contest to determine a winner. Unlike previous years, there will be a greater emphasis on video games. Gaming tournaments will take place throughout the weekend, including Street Fighter V and Tekken 7 contests. The tournament winners can take home the city championship, a $3,000 prize and the chance to compete in a multicity final. Pop culture fans will get a chance to buy items from
vendors, who have exclusive comics, T-shirts and other fan memorabilia. Local businesses, such as comic book shops, flock to the event to connect with residents who might not know about the growing pop culture community in Oklahoma.
