Red Light Winter

Horse Head Theatre is one of Groovee Fortune’s new clients. Recently I went with my awesome football fanatic husband to see a to Houston Texans game complete with Brett Farve and then got to hang out with the a few members of the cast and crew of Red Light Winter, the premiere performance of  Horse Head. The reviews are fantastic and I was delighted to learn my dear friend and college drinking buddy, Kevin Holden was the director. Kickass! If you are in Houston try to catch a show by this unconventional and daring new theatre group. I haven’t seen the show yet, but these people are going to entertain the hell out of you.

Litmus Industries & Horse Head deserve a little John Waters

As owner of Groovee Fortune web /print design, I am proud to present 2 new web pages for some old friends. Because I have known these people for many years and have lived thru many fun and sometimes bizarre situations w/ these folks, I feel a John Waters’ intro is in order. It just seems to fit perfectly and profoundly.

Cheers to Litmus Industries and Horse Head!

If you don’t  know who John Waters is, I wouldn’t really know where to start. He’s a filmmaker of the darkest kind because he rips the face of June and Ward Cleaver right off America and shoves all the tragic, harsh, real parts of life down your throat. He doesn’t seem to take himself too seriously but he’s really fucking good at what he does! Just brillant.  Drag queens, creepy folks, bizzare, absurd, ugly and tragic events…. You’ll just have to watch USA’s “Night Flight” on John Waters’ “Polyester” – 1982.

All I know is we have all lived thru some events together that make our lives eligible for a scene in a John Waters’ movie.

HORSE HEAD THEATRE

Kevin Holden, my dear old college friend, is part of the new Horse Head Theatre in Houston, Tx. My first 2 years at UT I probably spent most of my time with Kevin going to football games, drinking beer, playing racquetball, playing drinking games, etc… I miss racquetball! We used to play a crazy drinking game called Cardinal Puff…”For the first time tonight I drink to the Cardinal Puff.” While there are many occurences at UT vs OU and on 6th street, I think events at a What-a-Burger on the drag with a homeless man named Bucky who believe he was being followed by the CIA is one of our most Waters’ moment. I can best describe our relationship as a Strange Brew.

LITMUS INDUSTRIES

Tony and Lori Linder are the masterminds behind Litmus Industries. I can’t even count the numerous John Waters’ moments I’ve live thru with these two! I’ve always loved Lori’s sense of style and Tony’s art. Together they offer all kinds of fantastic creations. Beautiful glass work, vinyl signs, multimedia art, fantastic drawings, business signs, ironwork, etc. You’ll have to come back to this web page to see what ends up in the catalog for you to buy. As for Lori, I think mostly of our many trips to swimming holes in her dad’s old mint green buick which made me feel like we were The Muppets, a wild trip on the train trip to visit her in Seattle and a hunt to defend my honor against the bitchiness of one of the Donnas. Lori dressed me in fantastic Waters’ worthy clothes obtained around the country. The Linder  house looks like a Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum, perfect for the set of any Divine movie.

One of my funniest memories with Tony, I left the apartment he lived in with Bob Ray carrying my bike. I had to step down one step to the garage, slipped and end up trapped under my bike that was wedged into the step and a car. I begin yelling but the music was really loud. After about 15 minutes, Tony emerged and rescued me. I had sprang my ankle. Having much experience with twisted ankles, my best remedy was a 6 pack of Pearl bottles. About the time I finished my last beer, unexpectedly the police chased our friend, the neighbor,  thru the apartment. Having lost their hot pursuit,  who jumped out the second story and later called the police on the phone, the APD turned on us. My ankle, swollen like a catalope, was impossible to walk on and I was surrounded by beer bottles. The policeman walked up to me and asked me if I’d drank all that beer and I pointed at my ankle and he didn’t ask anymore quuestions. They threaten to take us all to jail, but luckily we were set free and left to our own devices. There are many live music stories I could tell about Red River and our trip to the Vegas Shakedown, but you can’t handle the truth. HA!

I’m very proud of Kevin, Tony and Lori. Despite our many adventures that might leave some in a straight jacket, we have grown up enough to do some things we can be really proud of! I am also working on new web pages for 2 of my college roommates (one is a Cardinal) but you can see those once they are ready! Enjoy and thanks for reading! XXOOO Beth Been

2008 Ozone Awards

Recently we went to a Houston Texans game. Lucky to find a good deal online, we headed for the Hilton in downtown Houston. Upon arrival is was apparent something was going one and I headed into our hotel to to get the keys. It was the 2008 Ozone Magazine Awards and it participants were in full effect around 4 pm. Talk about feeling like a cracker. I strolled into the lobby in my KISS shirt and was laughed at immediately by a guy I would have hired for a body guard. He gave me a break when I told him I was going to see the Texans. Here is just one of many videos filmed around the hotel. I will add more as I find them.

I really wanted to know who was AT the Awards. I watch a lot of rap videos. I love the music and can watch the hoochies shake their juicy crazy shaped booties for hours. My first thought was I wanna see Lil Mama or Kelis. I didn’t know what the hell was going one at these awards I wasn’t even sure if I liked rap or hip hop or what. I’ve been searching for some photos or video. Finally tonight, there it was. Outkast. Maybe just Big Boi. Damn I could have be standing next to him by the elevator. Would love to see them (him) perform. I did find out someone slapped Trae in the face, but I couldn’t actually find him getting slapped. When I went to get ice at around 2:30 am, two young guys told me I was fine. I think they were suffering from a skunk attack in our hallway! The whole adventure was a lot like being in a rap video without having to shake my ass and the Texans won!

Countdown to NFL Season

NFL Season Opener 

Countdown Clock  to NFL Season Opener

I was gonna find a count down clock for the new NFL Season and make fun of it.  I had to make my own and that’s not really funny! Here it is. Start stocking beer now so it will last thru the winter! Maybe this is the year to buy a kegenator!

Texas Rollergirls and Houston Texans

The Hotrod Honeys finally won the Championship. Congratulations, pink ladies, it seems you’ve been waiting a roll derby lifetime.

It was AWESOME to see so many Texas Rollergirl Alumni at the bout! I will definitely make a list of all the ladies in attendance and you can help me check it twice! Maybe I shouldn’t have been hanging out with that damn hot dog, H.R. Dog, at the Heartbreaker Hooligan’s tailgate party. Are you kidding me, H.R. and Slim Kickins getting kicked out of the game for using her elbow as a weapon are the most exciting things happening!

It’s obvious the Scarlot Harlot was no longer skating when the Hell Marys won the 2007 Championship, because her priorities are a little messed up. When a game is being won by 50 points, there is plenty of time to FIGHT and raise some hell. SMACK the crap out of someone who’s been driving you crazy all season. Scarlot was a little nervous at halftime someone might hang basketball goals at either end of the track and do away with skirts completely. In days of old granny days of the revival of roller derby, the Championship was a time to make a giant skull dragon or carry out a pink and blank coffin, dress up like another team, skate thru the long legs of a priest on stilts.   Scarlot would let this slide, but she just got back from the Houston Texans vs Denver Broncos game in Houston and even a die hard Redskin fan like Bettie Rage wanted to cry over the beauty of the Texans intro – AC/DC, a giant bullhead tunnel with smoke coming out and then the beautiful pyrotechnics of a giant boom and shooting flames. God bless America.

Most exciting was getting the Texan Cheerleaders signed photo!!!

We’ve got spirit, yes we do! We’ve got spirit, how about you!!!?!!
Texas Texas, YEEEE HAWWW!

 

What it feels like for a girl

You gotta love Madonna! I saw Madonna in Houston about 1989-90. It was the first time I saw live drag queens. They were fabulous. Madonna was AMAZING but super tiny. My mouth still falls open a little when I think about her humping that red velvet bed to Like a Virgin on the Blonde Ambition Tour. Yowzaaa! Here’s a few Madonna videos I didn’t want you to forget about and one you might not have seen!!!!

 

This was banned by MTV but they put black Jesus on MTV???

Madonna definitely told me how to EXPRESS MYSELF

Vogue! I saw this on MTV and LOVE IT!!! Hot Pants!!!! MMMWWWAAAA HAHAHA!
