mystery kid

so, here’s something weird.

for a few years, my brother scott has been using this photo as his msn image (as well as his last.fm avatar):

he randomly found it on the internet, but it’s pretty great because it could very well have been him at age 10…that is, if he ever had a terrible haircut, big glasses, and an old school leafs shirt. it’s close enough to have made me ask him once, “that’s not you, is it?”

anyway, while perusing the “wall of awesome” at soundscapes (you know the one – more often than not, the cd i’m looking to buy is on this wall), i happened to flip open the new henri faberge and the adorables cd and discovered this:

note the photo in the top left corner. (you can click on the image for a larger view).

so, this is a mystery: who is this kid? is it REALLY brendan howlett of the adorables? enquiring minds, blahblahblah.

    yeah, it is actually me. over the last couple years, people have sent me links to people using the picture on messsage boards etc, but it’s never been traced BACK to me.

    amazing.

    and yeah, that’s my grade 1 or 2 class picture. somewhere around there.
