There is graffiti in the bathroom of The Colony that says "Keep Tulsa Ugly." In that not everything is shiny and new, and that we have districts like the Brady and the Pearl where old building are only "pretty" to those of us who know what's inside, I say damn straight.

Of course, that's right next to "Roses are red, violets are blue, I have Dora the Explorer and a Happy Meal in the back of my van." So it can't all be gold.

The more I think about the "inherently odd" title, I realize why I liked it when I saw it.  Tulsa as always  acted like it was "just a little bit different" than the rest of the state.  (at least to a kid who grew up in SW OK, and was much more familiar with OKC, and Dallas than I was with Tulsa) Even now in the comments on this forum, the sentiment seems to be that that Tulsa is somehow "just different" (or at least wants to be) than the rest of the state.  We need slogan that expresses that attitude.

We can't use "weird", Austin has that one.  And I'm not sure "different" has the right connotations.

I actually kind of like "inherently odd". It's got just enough of that hipster self-awareness that makes it work.   But if not that, what?   Seriously,  it would be cool to see something like get picked up and run with.

I know this is a long dead project but I wonder if there would ever be any traction to create a park space similar, but smaller, than what Land Legacy had proposed:



Has Brickhugger released any plans for the NORDAM site?

Another plan that included the park space by Crafton Tull.  The Edge and Boxyard are both now in that area, if there was going to be an urban park it would have to be the triangle between 4th and 6th, with the new All Souls church being the south bookend
