Rick Moranis (Parenthood, Ghostbusters) has released his first ever CD entitled The Agoraphobic Cowboy, and the songs are very country and very kitschy. Truth is, the two songs I’ve listened to so far (the only two choices on the sample player) are actually pretty catchy. Hell, it almost sounds a little -like (think Inside In), and I’m actually somewhat impressed as I listen to it.

His inspiration?

I began to hear traditional, bluegrass and jam-band coming from their [his children] rooms. They played me , , , Moe, Stringcheese Incident and my favorite, Yonder Mountain Stringband. I also heard they’d forgotten I’d played for them many years before– ’s “ from Big Pink” and “.”

I’m posting my first Rick Moranis rumor ever as a result–RICK MORANIS AT 2006. I’m callin’ it. This guy is soooo poised to make a serious movie comeback as a result, too. I can’t wait.
