Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Dolly Parton has just been added to March’s SXSW

lineup

. Over her four-decade career, Parton has defined the role that women play in country music (big boobs), won a few Grammys (big boobs), written timeless love songs (big boobs) and even found time to open her own

theme park

(big boobs).

That's all fine, I guess. But all I care about is her role in 1980's 9 to 5, where Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin conspire to kill their boss Dabney Coleman. I love this movie because the theme song is catchy as hell, and I wouldn't mind killing Coleman myself. Seriously, Drexel's Class? He's prick incarnate. But dude did help save the world in WarGames. – Craig Hlavaty

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
