Quarter Minutes Update 9/19

Selfie with Quarter Minutes Team
Hello, everyone!

Just a quick update in regards to Quarter Minutes. I did the first filming session back on Saturday with the talents of Daniel Austin, Pallas, and Robyn Wheelock. We had a brief filming day from 9 am to 2 pm, but we filmed five stories with three of them being connecting to each other.

Parallel Travels still

Yesterday, I edited one of the videos, Parallel Travels. I’ve shared with some friends and I already have some people wanting to share it with others. I’ve set the release date for Monday, October 2 and I’ll be releasing new stories on Mondays until I run out.

That’s all for now! I’m going to get back to work editing the others.

Off The Hook

Off The Hook Seafood & More

What started as a food truck when a deal fell through with a former Thunder player, has now become a brick-and-mortar seafood restaurant with two locations. Owners, Loniesha and Corey Harris, talk about Off The Hook Seafood & More, how they got started, their popular dishes, and what to expect when visiting them.

Medicine Park and Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge Adventure

Hey, guys. This week I’m going to talk about Medicine Park, Oklahoma, which my wife and I explored on Labor Day.

Medicine Park is about an hour and a half drive from Oklahoma City, and the resort town is unique for its cobblestone decor, which are these round red rocks. It’s a fun day trip. Besides shopping and eating, there are sculptures to find all over the town, a scenic river trail, and what’s referred to as a bath late for swimming.

The newest addition to Medicine Park is their aquarium. The Medicine Park Aquarium and Natural Sciences Center just opened back in May. It’s been a long journey for them, and it’s great to see that they’re open. Most of the marine life is from Oklahoma, so it’s great way to learn about creatures in the state, and they have a wildflower and butterfly garden too. Also, keep in mind when visiting, they are new, they started small, and they have plans to expand and keep getting bigger and better.

While visiting Medicine Park, you have to check out the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. There are free range buffalo and cattle, which you need to be careful about, along with prairie dogs and other animals. The scenery is incredible, and one of the best views can be found on top of Mt. Scott. There’s lots to do in the area, including scuba diving and learning about the refuge in the nature center.

Tower at Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge - photo by Dennis Spielman

In past visits, we’ve seen this tower that we had no idea how to get to or even if we could get to it. Well this time, we found it. Near the Holy City, there is a sign that says Tower Trail, which leads to a parking lot where you can hike to it. It’s a half mile journey one way, and I would say it’s intermediate in difficulty. Sadly, while you can get to the tower, you cannot get on the tower. Still, it’s a cool hike and another spot to take pictures.

That’s it for this adventure. If you’re interested in buying some of my photos, click here. Be sure to subscribe to my channel, share this video, and tag your friends that you want to take this road trip.

Scottie’s Deli - photo by Dennis Spielman

Scottie’s Deli

Last week I was invited to try some of Scottie’s Deli signature sandwiches, sides, soups, and refreshments and learn more about the place during a media preview event. After an oil downturn, Eric Fossett turned his attention from oil to sandwiches with the opening of the Scottie’s Deli in the Uptown 23rd District. At Scottie’s Deli, they make as much of their product in-house as possible, this includes curing and/or smoking their corned beef, pastrami and bacon, roasting their beef, turkey, and chicken, even making their own mayonnaise and mustard.

Vultures in Guthrie

Guthrie Ghosts

Author Jeff Provine shares a collection of ghost stories and urban legends about Guthrie, Oklahoma. Jeff talks about the Lintz Department Store, the Blue Belle Saloon, Miss Lizzie’s, the underground tunnels, the train station, and where to go for ghost tours.

I’ve been sitting on this video for awhile. We filmed this back on July 25th, during a time period where I was filming a segment every day to have a pile of weekly content while I worked on Inviting Art and Yes Science. My backlog for Uncovering Oklahoma is now empty.

While I’m here, Inviting Art has been submitted to OETA’s Greenlight Committee for consideration of air time. It’s also in the process of being uploaded to Amazon for people to watch there. The standard edition on YouTube has professional subtitles now.
