For Christmas, one of my best friends from college, Ian, sent me a couple CDs. Both were kid's CDs.
The first was They Might Be Giants. For those that know the band, their kid's CD is exactly what you'd expect. A little odd and a lot of fun.
But the other CD Ian sent was from someone called Caspar Babypants.
Now, I had never heard of him, and I still have no idea how well known his music is outside of Washington State, where Ian lives now.
But I absolutely love the CD. Tons of great original kids music, and some fun variations on the classics.
Now here's where the mindblowing begins.
With Josie on my lap, I decided to pull up a youtube of the band and see if they had any fun live versions of their songs. I found my favorite in one of the first search results.
(sidebar: This is now my favorite song of the moment. Moreso than anything out right now. A kid's song. Not some new song on CD101, or something I'd hear at the bar after playing kickball in DC. My favorite song is a kid song. Odd.)
So here is the video. See if you recognize the singer.
Figure it out?
Here's a big, fat hint.
Yep, Caspar Babypants is the dude from The Presidents of the United States of America. Known for such all-time 90s doozies as Peaches, Kitty, and Lump.
Mind = Blown
Now, go buy his CD.
