I woke up this morning with 'Call me Al' stuck on my mind. In particular, the line:
"There were incidents and accidents
There were hints and allegations."
With this song as the back beat, I spent the morning emailing back and forth with the First Division Museum regarding some character background. I don't know why or how, but it feels like it all fits.
When I went to look up the song on YouTube, I found this comment. I don't know if it's true. And really, who cares? It's a great story.
"I love what this song is about. when Paul Simon was one? of the most famous people in the world
he was at a party and the host didn't know who he was and started calling him al :P. he's an inspiration" by Ollie Ford (who closed his YouTube account)
In our fame obsessed world, Paul Simon is an inspiration.
For the rest of the day, I'll only answer to the name 'Al.'
