Corn Mo: You Know, that guy who plays the accordian!

I was talking to some friends about Ben Folds.  One of them said, "Ya, this guy with an accordion opened for him!  He was crazy!" 
I said, "Ya, that was Corn Mo!!!  He's amazing!" 
If you've ever seen Corn Mo perform, you know who he is!  He had a couple years where he was Ben Folds' opening act.  (And if you know me, you know I LOVE Ben!) 
My personal favorite Corn Mo song is "Hava Nagila Monster."
I've seen numerous Corn Mo performances, basically because I've seen Ben so many times! One performance, I remember, Corn Mo was playing his accordion, and had a cymbal on the ground in front of him.  He tied a drum stick into his shoelace and would hit the cymbal with it.  That was awesome!
For some reason, Corn Mo has been on my mind since that conversation a week ago, so, I thought I would make that public.
And this is a random memory from Pechin!
