Hell Mary Salute

Scarlot Harlot was a bad rollergirl and didn’t make it to the roller derby all season. Tomax sums it all up.

Check out the Austin Chronicle write up and watch the Texas Rollergirls to see what other events will show up in the off season!
Oh yeah, the Hotrods won again…..

Jagger Peyton & the Scarlot Harlot

2 musicians and a rollergirl walk into a bar….
We will get to that part but first!!!!

Groovee Fortune is proud to present the new Jagger Peyton web site.

Oh Yeah! So what about that bar? Chris Jagger is a singer/guitar player, John Peyton is a harmonica player and in case I haven’t reminded you in the last 48 hours, I am the Scarlot Harlot, the red head with bedhead. Now what I am about to tell you isn’t very lady like but the Scarlot Harlot is no lady, Chris and Mick Jagger’ are brothers and the first time I talked to John Peyton, we talked more about how he could own his own roller derby team more than his web page…SO…

After uploading a new music file for John Peyton, I was looking for patches for a roller derby sundress I pieced together with old derby shirts. The Scarlot Harlot had a lovely red plaid school girl skirt covered in patches and wouldn’t you know…there on the front of that dirty girl’s skirt was the Rolling Stones mouth in purple. Oh my!

Having been hit on the head too many times it will just be easier to share a photo montage and it will also give Scarlot, the bedheaded stranger, the opportunity for self promotion of herself, the Texas Rollergirls & roller derby fans  she loves so much. Especially the self promotion part!!!!

It’s true the Scarlot Harlot had the Rolling Stone patch right over her hoochie coo. Oh Dear, but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do to earn the respect of people she knocks down on a regular basis and keep up with sexy cowgirls like Bettie Rage.

Pixie harassed us so much of the time we just learned to ignore her. Scarlot with Satina, Misty Meaner and Pixie.

Gibson guitar headquarters in Austin, Tx.

Once there was unlimited time to gossip in the parking lot, gamble, pose for photos and  listen to Lone Star Revival to save our wicked souls!

Misty Meaner is saluting the Stones or trying to lick me. Probably both! Mean Streak and Amen don’t even care!

When you are just looking for the mouth, it starts getting ridiculous!
While we are talking about the Rolling Stones…I recently watched a documentary about them playing a free concenrt for 1.2 million people in Brazil. Unbelievable.

The Scarlot Harlot as a Holy Roller only had time to put KISS on this skirt. Go watch Hell on Wheels to find out why her skirt color changed. You also have to watch Whip It featuring the Holy Rollers and Marcia Gay Harden who John performs with at the 2010 University of Texas Commencement Ceremonies. No one played harmonica at my UT graduation! It’s a small world indeed.

CHEERS to Jagger Peyton!!! Love all your shows but especially proud of all your charity work and your enthusiasm about all you do!

Hell Marys love the Cathedral of Junk. Save it!

After more than 20 years of life, the Cathedral of Junk is not up to code. Wonder what cranky neighbor or busy body came after this “Keep Austin Weird” artistic landmark.  Maybe a fat cat has an original condo idea for this fella’s backyard?

While I believe there is a solution being worked on right now to Save the Cathedral, it’s ridiculous for a city that boasts “Live Music Capital of the World” and “Keep Austin Weird” to be so reckless with it’s creative types. I don’t recall anyone building a musicians/bartender/sound guy condo downtown so the people who make their money on 6th st or Red River could walk to work. I haven’t forgotten about the Intel building despite it’s recent strickening from the Austin skyline. The artists even converted that eye soar into a work of beauty with aerial performance.

Okay…I’m stepping off my soapbox and want to show the Celesta Danger photos of  the Hell Marys at the Cathedral of Junk which won an Austin Chronicle 2006 Best of Austin Award and has 4.5 stars out of 5 stars on Yelp.  There are more photos but these are just some random ones I found. LEAVE the Cathedral alone! Geezzz! Please post a comment if you have any useful links.

Fun Roller Skating/Derby Photos

Roller Derby Game

For many years, Scarlot Harlot of the Hell Marys and Groovee Fortune created and maintained the Texas Rollergirls’ web page. Prior to the split you can see all about in Hell on Wheels, she maintained the Bad Girl Good Woman web page and was nominated for best extreme sport web page by SXSW  2003. The crazy after party.

Chicago Skate Guide

Thru the ups and the downs of derby, there were many ways the whole thing could have panned out visually, dynamically, etc. When maintaining the derby sites in the early days, I looked around the World Wide Web to see what inspiration and ideas might lurk out there. Look what’s out there now!!! I want to share some of those photos. I’ll try to keep posting some more derby photos. There are many photos even the godmothers of the reinvention of roller derby have not seen but first the really old old school stuff.
