I’m really sick of all these so called child prodigies that our culture has this sick fascination for. I don’t know if it’s the “ooooh, he/she acts like people!” innaneness, or the freak show feel to it all. Like this kid, Cole Marcus.
Okay, so he’s only 4 and plays the drums. Neat. No, no it’s not. My evidence? This clip, in which Cole plays (badly, I’m sorry but it’s true) over an insanely slowed down version of Crazy Train to the slathering delight of the grownups on stage. I mean, c’mon. All kids bang the crap out of stuff, the only difference here is that his parents were dumb enough to buy him a drum set to do it on.
