IF: prepare

Spread the love

This week’s Illustration Friday word is “prepare.”
I know that your powers of retention/Are as wet as a warthog's backside/But thick as you are, pay attention/My words are a matter of pride/It's clear from your vacant expressions/The lights are not all on upstairs

“Artie is a singer, and I’m a writer and a player and a singer. We didn’t work together on a creative level and prepare the songs. I did that.” — Paul Simon

I understand the popularity of Simon and Garfunkel. I am aware of Paul Simon’s songwriting ability and his contributions to his success with one-time partner Art, and as a solo artist. I fully appreciate the longevity of his career…

… but, Jeez!  Paul, that doesn’t give you the right to be a dick.




  1. Hehe, nice. I too have heard some tales of Mr. Simon being less than pleasant. But who knows what might be taken out of context? I try not to be too harsh on folks in the public eye. I don’t think it’s always a great place to be.

  2. Great illustration. I recently heard an interview with Mr Simon who is under the impression that his music is much more significant than it is. Again, no denying his talent, but entertainment and influence are two very different things!!
