This is supposed to be a surprise, so don't tell anyone, but my friend Kevin is getting an award soon. He's a writer and an independent book publisher, and some impressive Portland body is giving him an award for service to the community. I, along with many others among his friends and supporters were given the task of creating a 30 second audio clip dedicated to him. So I wrote a tiny little song for him. The lyrics come from one of his short stories. It's called "Vibrator" and it comes from his book A Common Pornography. His little story is only around six or seven sentences long, and I adapted the lyrics to suit the song. The lyrics run:

Dad gave me a vibrator once
To give to mother for a birthday present
Later they kept it in a jar by the bed
And Soon they were sleeping in separate beds.

Here is the little clip. Congratulations, Kevin!
