My kid could do that

Jaci Banton

My kid could do that

What?

Play like that.

Sean?

That’s your nephew you’re talking about

He’s a good kid

What?

Remember the time I had to teach him to tie his shoes?

What does that have to do with anything?

He was ten.

This coming from the guy who pissed himself at prom

Have you ever chugged a Rockstar Vodka?  

You’re lucky it was pre-Facebook. 

The point is that it’s hard to pick up an instrument and get the feel of it.

The feel of it. I saw this video of a kid twice Sean’s age- played faster than you could believe

Faster-

Virtuoso. 

The fastest- do you think that’s what Albeniz cared about?

Right, music is all about the feel, brother, like the clouds from an airplane after an espresso, when you see your reflection in the window and think, is this it? But life is all about the it, man. Didn’t know I was related to Jack Kerouac

He’s just too young 

Can you pass the salt? 

And now you’re mad

I’m not- pass the salt

Having feel isn’t what any five year old should be focusing on anyway

The salt

Because I don’t agree with you you’re going to put salt on it? 

I’m not insulted, I just want some salt is all. 

Jan: Nobody in the history of Montreal has ever put salt on their rice 

Call me a pioneer 

All I’m saying is that music is beautiful, hard to explain, and I don’t know why.

No, music is beautiful because you don’t know why
