Last week they held a dedication ceremony for the Flaming Lips Alley in Bricktown. Of course I went and took some cool pictures. The ceremony was a true Flaming Lips production with confetti cannons and giant balloons floating through the crowd. There were Santas and aliens bee-bopping on stage and some poor guy dressed in an inflatable butterfly costume down front.
After the ribbon cutting, Wayne Coyne met people at the front of the stage for autographs and pictures. This was my second time meeting Wayne and I was again amazed at how personable he is. He wants to spend hours talking to each and every one of us. He not only wants to connect with the people, but he’s passionate about community and he can sit and gab for hours about why he chose to keep his home in OKC. He’s just awesome.
Enjoy the pics!
