Celebrating the Arts


Did you know that October is National Arts and Humanities month? I didn't. But now I do, and Craig and I will celebrate with a great group of local artists, musicians and performers at the Shasta Arts Council's ARTsMART 2010.

We'll be on stage from 4:30 - 5:30, and we're looking forward to singing some of our favorite tunes with local flavor, including Under the Sundial Bridge and The Lost Falls of Whiskeytown.

We'll be giving away kisses (chocolate) and Sundial Bridge postcards (not chocolate), so please stop by and say "hi."

Here's a tune on our Saturday playlist :





Reminds Me of You
words and music © Erin Coombs Friedman


Stuck in traffic, suckin' up fumes
Turn on the TV - there's nothin but bad news
Big wad of chewing gum stuck to my shoes
Reminds Me of You - Reminds Me of You

The pain in my head from a cheap Chardonnay
Debris in the street from the rodeo parade
Shaving my legs with a dull razor blade
Reminds Me of You -- Reminds Me of You


It?s not the sentimental things
Keep me from forgetting you
It's things that stink
Things that slink
And leave an ugly residue

The scum that I scrub from my shower floor
The spider that crawls in under the door
A shiny red apple, bad to the core
Reminds Me of You -- Reminds Me of You

A screaming brat, stomping his feet
The cream in my coffee that expired last week
Ooze on the ground where the septic tank leaked
Reminds Me of You -- Reminds Me of You

It's not the sentimental things
Keep me from forgetting you
It's the things that stink
The things that slink
And leave an ugly residue

The smell of the breeze by the stockyard in June
A festering toothache, a hot-air balloon
The road kill remains of a mangy raccoon
Reminds Me of You -- Reminds Me of You
