Freebase

  1. Betty

    Betty is the third album by Helmet, released in 1994 on Interscope. The album was highly anticipated by both music critics and fans as a result of the band's success with the previous album, Meantime. Rob Echeverria replaced Peter Mengede on guitar. Despite being Helmet's highest charting album in the U.S., Betty was not as successful as Meantime but received almost unanimously favorable reviews from critics. After recording and touring in support of the album, Echeverria left Helmet in 1995 to join Biohazard; however, his departure was more amicable than Mengede's. Prior to Betty's release in June 1994, the album's biggest hit, "Milquetoast," appeared in alternate form on The Crow soundtrack as "Milktoast." Its video was in regular rotation on MTV, and videos for "Wilma's Rainbow" and "Biscuits For Smut" were also released.

  1. Jim Colucci:

    There was joking when Betty came in after that: ‘Oh boy, it’s going to be rough around here,’.

  2. Jim Colucci:

    Bea was offended, when the writers called Rose [Betty White] dumb or Blanche [Rue McClanahan] a slut or Sophia [Estelle Getty] old, it could roll off those women’s backs because they were not like their characters.

  3. Rue McClanahan:

    Bea came from a New York stage point of view, she always had what we call ‘the fourth wall.’ And Betty came from a television point of view. She would flirt with the audience, and pull up her skirt and say, ‘Hi sailor.’ But Bea never acknowledged the audience.

  4. So I Married an Axe Murderer:

    Charlie Woman... woe-man... whoooa-man. She was a thief, you got to believe, she stole my heart and my cat. Judy, Betty, Josie and those hot Pussycats... they made me horny, on Saturday morning... girls of cartoo-ins will leave me in ruins... I want to to be Betty's Barney. Jane... get me off this crazy thing... called love.

As did Betty Hill, Pat Surtees, Bruce McLaren’s wife, Jochen Rindt’s Bruce McLaren wife, it was Nora Tyrrell and Helen Stewart timing for the whole team, but at the same time in the race doing a lap chart for 26 cars. Here’s the sharpness, a laser brain... and then suddenly not remembering the most simple thing.
