My Little Virtuoso

This heart is Your instrument
And this life is Your song

David Phelps
Revelation (2004)

My son is playing Burnout Paradise in the living room. Upon firing the game up, his first demand was to listen to Virtuoso by David Phelps; this is because my son has awesome taste in music. He then proceeded to go to a Road Rage in the game and kick the computer's butt.

Connor is seriously good at this game. I mean, scary good. He's a veritable artist, with the car as his paint and the asphalt as his canvas. I can't decide whether or not his skill at a game primarily about speeding and crashing pleases me or worries me, so for now I'm just going to be proud of my little boy's skill and hand-eye coordination.

Now, for those of you who have never heard of the song or of David Phelps, I present Virtuoso. Please press play and treat your ears to the best male voice on the planet. And in true Fat Albert style, if you're not careful, you might learn something, too!

Hiya, Larry. Good stuff here!! I've enjoyed catching up on your year so far.

I think we should make Frank get a perm and wear a shiny grey shirt, don't you?

I'd pay so much money to see that ...
