It's been a busy 2008 for the Failed Bands of Oklahoma:
--> The FBO noted that Oklahoma designed a really dumb quarter.
--> The National Automobile Museum purposely endorsed some old car race that went out of its way to snub Oklahoma. Hence the FBO asked for an apology and never received one.
--> The FBO recognized the danger of naming the new OKC NBA team, offered pre-emptive suggestions (that ended up better than the final verdict).
--> The FBO -- fed up with critics' negativity -- responded by falling in love:
--> The FBO tried to like REM again, then listened again to Hear-n-Aid's curious 164-second guitar solo.
--> The FBO took issue with Virginia's quarter, which noted the death of Jamestown.
--> The FBO, in Bulgaria, responded to critics at the same hilltop it released FBO news in 2006. Then created a poem -- using a disrespectful act to a pet to work as a proxy rebuttal -- in a Bulgarian rental car for the ongoing criticism FBO receives without warrant.
--> FBO's first member Tall Tales played their first show in 14 years.
