Looks like it's foxy to race amid the stars, lose oneself in drink, pine for hidden stability, be sexy as Vermeer (or his daughter, as Jonathan Richman sings now), dust oneself off, wave to your fans on Saturn, smile enigmatically, leave happy, and school oneself. That augurs well.

All viable, modern, cultures encode self-defeating behaviours into the counter-cultural modes they engender—it's cheaper and easier than bashing-in heads, and looks better.

I heard an interview with Art a couple months ago and yes, he was pissed at Paul for not joining him on his latest tour. After hearing him sing a couple songs live, I don't blame Paul for bowing out. Art's gone off the deep end. Pretty sad, really.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39am dale:

I dunno why he's so angry. There would've been no Simon and Garfunkel without Simon. Or Garfunkel, for that matter.
Avatar 9:40am Linda Lee:

true story: Art came through our wee burg on his bike with a friend, ate at the local deli & became horribly ill. connection unknown. Art was forced to leave the bike at the deli & hitch a ride home to Woodstock with the deli owners' son ~ about an hour's trip. they sang duets the whole ride. a dream come true. he sent along a CD in appreciation. reports say he was very decent.

Avatar 9:42am (((Murakami Whywolf):

I should be clear: I really like aspects of BAI,and much of the opinion they present needs hearing. Their year-end "Shortcuts" programmes helped me understand what radio could do. Their science-fiction shows were bulwarks of my youth, and their broadcasts of old radio shows and their re-creations a great introduction for me.

Still, this year I've been avoiding them, since there's the irritatingness about them, plus I remember that listening too much KPFA the first couple of Reagan Presidency years drove me close to suicidal.
  9:43am FǚFǚ (:

Understandable, Ken. If I were in the Simon and Garfunkel band I'll be pretty angry as well.

Paul Simon once yelled at my sister, in a library, while she was accommodating his request for sheet music at the library she worked. Quite a deranged guy, in some respects. Ever see the video of the two of them (Simon and Garfunkel) at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Simons' is talented and a bit of a nasty nut job.

Talking about ice-skating. Do NOT attempt to try it with a bicycle. Is not good for your rib cage. I know that for sure not because it happened to me recently but because it happened to an aqcquitance of a friend of a cousin's second uncle's son.
