It’s hard to believe that 20 years ago, I discovered Clueless. From the moment Cher Horowitz graced the big screen in her plaid outfit, I was mesmerized. This fashionista, and her BFF Dionne, had it all. As a girl from a tiny town East Texas, I soaked up every ounce of this movie like it was my own personal glimpse inside a cool person’s world.
Fast forward to my senior year at Baylor University. I remember the day my “Film/Media” professor discussed an assignment that would be a big part of our semester grade. All we had to do was pick out a classic movie and explain how it had woven itself into the tapestry of our culture.
My fellow students began buzzing with calls of “dibs” on famous titles such as The Godfather and The Graduate. I remember two girls fighting over Casablanca. For a hot second I considered Star Wars, Dazed and Confused or Grease.
Starring: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins
A dinosaur created in a test tube at the Jurassic Park genetics lab is reared and released into it’s own, natural habitat. Unfortunately, this crazy dinosaur doesn’t like to be cooped up behind walls and decides to go on a killing spree. Whoopsie.
So there I was—standing in the blistering heat outside of Toyota Center, waiting for the 7:00 show to leave the building. It was 10:00. As in p.m. Not one of us complained about the fact that our concert didn’t start until 10:30.
1. How awesome is Garth Brooks for doing TWO SHOWS in ONE NIGHT?
2. Some of us may or may not have taken naps in prep for the late night.
3. All of us wanted to prove that we are still young and fabulous like the kids nowadays who get ready to roll up into the club about this time.
Do kids still roll up into clubs?
In part one of our story, Lincee’s infatuation with Garth Brooks’ music began. Part two embellishes the dramatic events that unfolded before the actual concert ticket purchase. Enjoy.
I remember the day well. I was in the drive-thru line purchasing a number four combo with a Diet Dr Pepper when the announcement came through loud and clear on my car radio. The rumors were true. Garth Brooks is coming to Houston.
Immediately my phone blew up. Our fearless leader Emily had been tracking (read: stalking) his website for months. And now our dreams were about to become a reality. We marked our calendars for May 8, waiting in anticipation for the day we could purchase our tickets. There were 10 of us committed to the cause. Yet only two could commit to the actual purchase of said tickets.
Me and Emily.
