Ernie

I really have to give a shout out to my friend, Ernie who is also at myspace. She's such a blast, and a extremely talented singer/songwriter. She has a refreshing cynicism that helps knock some of the sugarcoating of life, but also shines with love for the people in her life.

One of my favorite songs of hers is "Cartoon Cutouts", which she wrote about her friends here in Austin. ginger931 reminded me of this song after one of her recent posts.

I've never seen such a cast of characters
so many diamonds playing in the rough-
with dreams, with dreams as big as the world

sometimes life gets in the way, dreams get bigger everyday...
'til we finally fly high- away.

and these tales that we tell, describe us so well
As if we were cartoon cutouts of ourselves.

She's trying to pin down the sound engineer she recorded her new album with, to finish the final mixing. I'll let you know when she has a recording available!

I've got an album of hers somewhere around here.

I always enjoyed when Dock would take me to see his friends play and I got exposed to music I wouldn't hear otherwise.
