9:04 pm - Music from Texas  
So how often has this happened to you? You're walking through a big box store, say a Home Depot, and a song you don't ever recall hearing before comes over the PA system and completely grabs you. Yeah, me neither. At least not till yesterday, when I spent a good couple of minutes just standing in the tool department of the local Depot listening to this song, especially its killer chorus, trying to latch onto a lyric fragment that I could google later on to track the song down. The only thing I was sure of was that the band had to be from Texas.

Turns out I was right about the Texas part. The song was Fastball's "The Way" which apparently was a big hit about ten years ago. I wonder how I missed it.

As long as were talking about Texas, I want to marry Kathy McCarty. That's her doing Daniel Johnston's "Living Life."

Wow, I didn't know there was a video for that.

I said Hi to her once in a bar, but didn't have the nerve to tell her how much I loved that album.

My friend Suz (who lives in Austin) got her to sign a single from her earlier band, Glass Eye, to me. It had "Satellite of Love" as the b-side. I wish she'd do another album. I'm afraid she might've left music. She wasn't making enough money to support herself.

Her record label put up a couple of other videos up as well, "Rocketship" and "Sorry Entertainer."

She did apparently do a second solo album a couple years ago. I need to find a copy.
