When my worlds collide…

I was working on my newspaper Q&A column today, researching a reader’s question about who did the music in the Volvo commercial with the song, “The Wheels on the Bus.”

Turns out its Stephin Merritt, who hangs with Daniel Handler aka LemonyS*. You can find them playing together on Youtube.

He also was working on a Coraline** play/musical or something. Not sure whatever came of that.

*Did you know that if you spell Dickens backwards you get Snekcid.

**By the way, I saw on Wikipedia that P. Craig Russell*** is adapting Coraline into a graphic novel.

***P. Craig Russell is a mighty fine artist.
