Ernie Durawa, Drummer Extrodinaire!

It is with great pleasure, Groovee Fortune presents the new web page for an amazing drummer, Ernie Durawa!!!! Wait till you see the list of people he’s played with…Texas TornadosWillie Nelson, Freddy Fender, Dough Sahm, Johnny GimbleJohn Belushi (I’m gonna put my bee suit on right now!) are just some of my favorites! He teaches Drum Lessons too!

Ernie has been so easy to work with and I am very smitten with his pet, Pig Floyd! That pig gets to have more fun than me partying at the Continental club, hanging out at the Hilton! Get out and see Ernie play really soon!

Thanks for the referral Jagger Peyton

Paris with Gaga

Paris Hilton interviewing Lady Gaga! These 2 gushing over each other, delights and disturbs me. As a lover of pop culture, it’s the best! (fade in Davie Bowie song FAME!)

I was extremely impressed to see Lady Gaga using her voice politically concerning Don’t ask, don’t tell. Gaga’s not half as weird as some of our politicians. In fact she is a response to their holier than thou, suit wearing, perverse ways. She’s even mocking them in the photo below!HA HA!

What do you think of Lady Gaga? VOTE NOW or leave a comment!

Madonna blew my mind and Lady Gaga crawled into the mush that remained and rolled around!!!

This post was brought to you by the loop of  Bad Romance playing
in my brain since I woke up. Now it’s  been looped together
with Madonna, Dance and Sing.

If you want to be famous, maybe you should be blonde…

 

Anna Wintour, the high-queen of haute couture


This 60 Minutes interview with Anna Wintour inspired me to be serious about sewing. I didn’t expect to like Anna Wintour, but I do. She makes me think of Barbra Striesand & Janice from the Muppets. Thanks Anna, it takes a lot for me to be super serious about sewing.
I love Vogue and you!

I will be posting more creations very soon on Countrystarr.com

Peaches and Iggy Pop KICK IT

I’m probably the last person to see this but it is FANTASTIC!

Peaches featuring Iggy Pop KICK IT

Elijah Wood as Iggy Pop?

I also saw The Chemical Brothers – Do It Again on ME Television.  AWESOME!

Song for You

I have always thought of Willie’s friend, Leon Russell, as dirty ole Santa Claus. I was surprised to see how cute he was as a young buck. Willie and my mom knew, and now I do too! ha!

I love this song. Especially when Ray Charles or Willie sing it.

Watch this one tooo!

Another Day in Paradise

I almost don’t know where to start. Many years ago I moved into the Goodall Wooten on the UT drag.  One of my suite mates was a young lady named Catherine Krantz. She wore a lot of black, camouflage and army boots, her major was photography, she was a vegetarian and very interesting to me. She ended up being my roommate for 3 of 4 years of college. After college, I went to the Middle East, she went to Romania, moved to Houston, etc….we lost touch. Through the miracle of the internet we reconnected and just look at all we’ve done.

Catherine has spent over 10 years building up her magazine Another Day In Paradise. Groovee Fortune was so happy to be able to redesign her web page with all you’ll ever need to know about Ixtapa Zihuatanejo! Be sure to check out  adipRADIO ! The print magazine looks terrific if you are interested in a subscription!

Catherine partnered with a real estate agent down Mexico way and we collaborated on a web page for 118 Real Estate.

Catherine is a board member for the Zihuatanejo !nternational Guitar Festival and we just completed a new web page for the festival in English and Spanish!!!!

I’m so proud of all the work Catherine has done since I last saw her and so excited that we are able to work so well together! Cheers Catherine! I’m saving my pennies in a jar to come see you soon!!!

The Metro

I want to got to a friends birthday the Saturday of Labor Day weekend but I don’t want to drive out west of Westlake. The state of Texas has decided that any holiday is a free to give you a blood alcohol test with no refusal. I don’t know all the implications of this and i don’t want to find out. I hate to drive and once it gets dark and there are no lights I feel nervous about animals. I love Austin so much but this lady was made for the METRO!!! Where the hell is my public transportation Austin people in charge of this!!!!!!! Half my family and friends live in another city that is still considered Austin. Will it help if I eat at Subway? I wanna ride the train to this birthday party! I’ll buy a pass on the METRO….

This is an AWESOME cover!!!

Cccp – American Soviets

One of my favorites! Remember how scared we used to be of the Soviets? Now it’s all about the Arabs. I don’t wholeheartedly trust either but I have have learned a lot from both. I don’t trust a lot of Americans. I do trust that in if a worldly Russian, an suave Arab and a cool American walked into a dance club and this was playing, they’d all dance! They’d just have to DANCE. Ahhhh the snake charmer dance. Another of my favorites!

Since posting this, I had had to add another favorite song!

Mrs. Brownie Dress

Dress #8. Mrs. Brownie Scout. As a kid, I chose gymnastics over being a Brownie or Girl Scout but now I have an Adult size Brownie Dress. Maybe I’ll get my sewing badge. Sorry I couldn’t make it hang straight. My dress form needs to EAT!

This is the first non stretchable fabric I have sewn with. I got a really great deal on fabric, ric rac and patches at Treasure City Thrift. This dress not counting the time it took to wrangler a giant tent into something that fit, probably cost me about $4. Yipeee!

Yes the dress looks like a gingerbread house and should probably have a gingerbread man on the pocket, but this Boy Scout patch was just too sweet! I am in love with this dress even though the bust line is too high!!
