I am That Person Who Owns Every Simon & Garfunkel Album And Doesn't Care If That Means She Has Really Bourgeois Music Tastes, Seeing As It's Not The 1960s. I blame my mother: she took out some of their albums (especially the Graduate soundtrack) from the library and I listened to them so much and she'd tell me about how much she used to listen to them when she was young. I ended up buying all their records. The only one I have on CD is The Sounds of Silence, a fact which used to cause the owner of my favourite used book and record store to harass me that I ought to buy the record for that one as well.
When I heard that they were going to be playing in Vancouver soon, I looked at the prices of tickets, made muttered comments about being so jealous of my friends who could afford tickets that I might karate-chop them in the face (sorry about that, Karl) and then played the B-side of Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme a lot.
And then today I heard that they had postponed their tour in Canada because of Art Garfunkel's voice. And then Chris's Dad called us to see if we wanted to go with them to the Saskatoon concert, because it'll now be happening in July when we're back home. Our tickets will be our early birthday presents from them.
So, yeah. I'm going to see Simon and Garfunkel in concert. I haven't really processed that fact yet, but I'm listening to "The Boxer" right now and am singing the harmonies.
