    Major music freak! Have partied in this town since mid 70's.. Also major movie freak.. a correspondent of Joe Bob Briggs since the late 80's.. did a little project with his zine called "Board of Drive-in Movie Experts" for, maybe 5 or 6 years? Bowling and pub sports, mainly shuffleboard.. hey, it's kinda like bowling, isn't it? and of course the history of Houston.
  1. I posted about this before but might have gotten some info wrong. When I was living in the Woodland Heights from '80 to '81 or '82, this friend of the guy I was living with and myself took us to this beer garden type place once, possibly twice. I've driven around Morrison St. several times trying to find this, and was able to speak to my friend last week regarding this. He says that it was kind of a "secret" neighborhood thing... and it was in the back yard of a Mason's (or some kind of organization) building, and it was around the corner from King Biscuit. After speaking w/him (but after a
  2. It's called..."Striking Images" by Monte Beauchamp.. a collection of vintage matchbook cover art. Tons of great stuff.
  3. evidently there was an Orange Julius store/stand near Med Center? Here's yet another matchbook cover I found in my new book..
  4. Here's some more Abe and Pappy... unsure if it's Houston or elsewhere...
  5. I have no idea when it was taken, but love this pic.
  6. I'm sure y'all've already heard.. This is one of the nicest and coolest guys I've ever known. This is sickening. I've know Tom for quite awhile.. his sister is a friend of mine.. married to the sound guy and a vocalist at Radio Music Theatre where I work weekends. He's been around the art car scene longer than I have. http://www.click2houston.com/news/16238435/detail.html <H1 class=Headline>Driver Charged In Art Car Museum Curator's Death</H1> HOUSTON -- A driver has been charged in the death of the curator of Houston's Art Car Museum, who was killed hours after the 21st-annual
  7. I found this guy who used to play at The Jester... who goes by the name of Texas Jon?? http://www.gualalaarts.org/Groups/LocalEye...02TexasJon.html
  8. I started a new job last week for a trucking company.. fairly far away from deep in the bowels of SW Houston where I live.. but thanks to the beltway I get to work in 30 minutes. Anyhoo.. am working out on Windfern Road.. in the 9200 block.. Have never been out here before.. there seem to be some fairly nice s/d's.. then down the road trailer parks.. and industrial.. and pass some cows every day coming home to get on Fallbrook to the Beltway. When I worked for this real estate company, Henry Taub (believe that's his name) had many listings.. and I pass by Taub Road on the way home every day to
  9. I love that flick! It was filmed on a street behind Gray Street around the corner from Cecil's. A friend of mine was living on that street when they were filming.
  10. Watching lots of excess movies lately... and pulled out this vhs copy of this movie I got to resell on ebay eons ago. Twas called "When The Bough Breaks" starring Martin Sheen, Ally Walker, and Ron Perlman (think that's spelled right), made in 1993. I hate it when they have a movie that set in some city and don't even try to make it seem authentic. This was a so-so thriller.. but only mention of Houston was the showing of a Houston map (show pretty much the loop only, not much beltway) in one scene, a Houston Chronicle in one scene.. and a Houston Post in another. And of course the good ol'
  11. before it was R&R it was the Pirannha Room. I used to go to happy hour there after work all the time.
  12. I remember.. back in the late 80's.. after working at Radio Music Theatre.. VD was on a Thursday that year.. and going to a Valentine's Day party at Loreno's Local Charm on Lawndale. It was kind of an art car crowd party.. this band called The Missles played.. and my buddy Bryan Taylor was handing out those cute little Valentines we all used to give out at school as kids. That was fun.
  13. Thanks for the link. I used to go there for happy hour when my girlfriend worked the "lunch shift". Cozy lil place. I've been seeing Rory around the music scene for quite awhile.. last time I saw him was at the Archie Bell/Roy Head show at Continental.
  14. it was down the street from Of Our Own. anyone???
