Paul Simon, anyone?

This is a cry of despair.

Paul Simon is playing at the Radio City Music Hall in NYC on Saturday, 21st October. I'm desparate to go. But none of my friends here (at least, the ones I know in person!) are interested - not quite their genre.

Anyone out there wanna go?

Cultural Confessions

For the longest time, I thought Jessica Simpson was a character on "The Simpsons".

I haven't read "7 Habits" nor "Siddhartha", nor watched "Citizen Kane."

I have, on the other hand, read "Congo", "The Andromeda Strain", plenty of Alistair Macleans, Louis L'Amours and Sudden time without number.

And watched Sleepless in Seattle, The Man With One Red Shoe, See No Evil Hear No Evil and You've Got Mail several times.

And (the kicker) I still, just occasionally, listen to Cliff Richard, The Carpenters and Abba.

(Head hanging low) I'm a cultural pleb, hoi polloi.
