A broken heart. I innocently sent it to a friend of mine, not knowing that he had just gone through a breakup.

Wow! Adam Swanson. Good to know he's got currency out of pure ragtime circles. I'm not sure he's entirely human.

Just for fun, check out the chopsticks and chopsticks redux videos with him and Tom brier fooling around at the piano. The videos were taken about a year apart. There's very much a playful "try to keep up, kid" vibe in the first one and a lot more give and take in the second one. The videos are almost like a "cutting contest".
