simon comes off pretty well here next to "wacky" garfunkel and david bowie as nosferatu

actually, i think garfunkel comes of pretty well between rupert pupkin and a corpse

wasn't this paul simon's party in Annie Hall?

tylerw, Tuesday, 20 March 2012 19:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

Was wondering if anybody had mentioned Annie Hall--he's so definitively late-'70s West Coast creepy in that. He's like a walking, talking Pablo Cruise.

PS's scenes in Annie Hall are high points of the movie for me tho, so perfect

"we're gonna go back to Jack and Anjelica's place, nothing serious, very casual"

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN GRAND ILLUSION STONED

I think it's funny that Laurie Bird played PS's girlfirend in Annie Hall and was w/G-Funk irl. Adds extra weirdness to the performance.

btw 1980 Paul Simon was workin' those biceps!

it's great

the sir edmund hillary of sitting through pauly shore films (Shakey Mo Collier), Tuesday, 20 March 2012 20:19 (2 years ago) Permalink

I haven't seen it since '80, thought it was OK at the time, esp Lou Reed as villain.

r u guys counting "Kodachrome" as a 'weed song'?

Literal Facepalms (Dr Morbius), Tuesday, 20 March 2012 20:20 (2 years ago) Permalink

I've posted this scene before but what the hell

the sir edmund hillary of sitting through pauly shore films (Shakey Mo Collier), Tuesday, 20 March 2012 20:20 (2 years ago) Permalink

I have never been able to fathom what Kodachrome is about

G-Funk!

some dude, Tuesday, 20 March 2012 20:20 (2 years ago) Permalink

off the top of my head, Simon songs that mention/are about drugs, specifically weed:

Punky's Dilemma
Late in the Evening
Me & Julio Down By the Schoolyard
Keep the Customer Satisfied
that S&G song where he mentions "smoking" tea

xp

All Tom Ford ever needed to know he learned from Smon's Rolling Stone cover.

"Flashy...hip" (Eazy), Tuesday, 20 March 2012 20:56 (2 years ago) Permalink

Also, 90s Simon looks like a kinder, gentler Steve Albini.

"Flashy...hip" (Eazy), Tuesday, 20 March 2012 21:01 (2 years ago) Permalink

If he had a beard he'd kinda look like Marty Scorsese in that drug lord outfit.

"We're going back to the Pierre. We're staying at the Pierre. We're gonna meet Jack and Anjelica and have a drink. If you'd like to come, we'd love to have you. We can just sit and talk. Not a big deal. It's just relaxed. It would just be very mellow."

#20 THE SOUND OF SILENCE

woo! and we're back. fickin' love this song. sounds like a museum. (my highest vote yet to place: in @ #8)

also voted for "i am a rock", but seriously regret it in light of "peace like a river"

kind of hate "you can call me al", despite the angels in the architecture, angels, hallelujah!

must specify here that i voted "i am a rock" solo version
