One of the more accessible rock stars who call West Seattle home, Chris Ballew in his alter ego of Caspar Babypants is seeking help with the completion of song he, "started a long time ago," called "When I was little."

Ballew is better known as one of the members of the band Presidents of the United States of America, whose hits include, "Lump", "Kitty," and "Peaches."

In a story posted on the Seattle Chamber of Commerce site the project is described as being part of a social music experiment.
"The social music experiment is a collaboration between the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce and Chris Ballew as part of the IN-NW Social Media Conference. While participation in the experiment is open, those who take part may be asked to sign this release."

All you need to do is finish the phrase "When I Little..." with a memory from your childhood. Tweet it using #innwsong. Post it to in 25 words or less.

After you've become part of the expedient you can join Chris either in-person or virtually on Wednesday, February 13 at the IN-NW 2013 Social Media Conference to hear "our" new song—and maybe the next big evolution in Seattle music.
