My friend Corbin Keep, who is the Jimi Hendrix of the cello, has just had a profile done in the Georgia Straight, Vancouver's answer to the Village Voice. There is a paragraph in the article where he talks about "Aliens," a track off his new album, which goes like this:

"I had a woman call me up about a month ago," he adds. "And she said, 'Corbin, listen to this.' Her kid is three, and he has this ritual: he puts all thse pots and pans on the staircase in their kitchen, and then he puts on that song and bashes the pots and pans during the verses, then stands at attention to sing along during the chorus. So I guess it's funny and goofy and kids seem to like it."

That kid is my son Finn.
