Dude, it's the Call Me Al song, wtf is wrong with you?
coldfury: So, I'm thinking of changing my character's last name. What should it be?
ifritah: Well, what's your character's first name?
CF: Albert.
Me: Ugh, that's an awful name! (Sorry, to all you Albert's out there. *Cough*)
CF: What, why? Your character could totally call him Al!
Me: *Smirk* And you could call my character Betty?
CF: Uh, sure?
Me: ... Please tell me you catch the reference.
CF: I have no idea what you're talking about.
Me: ... ... ... *Loads up youtube and shows him:



CF: ... Who the hell is Paul Simon and why would you think I'd know this song?
Me: ... I'm so typing this up on LJ.
CF: Okay, but I still think you're on crack for expecting this to be a popular reference. But hell, for the occasion, I shall change my character's last name to Simon! And heck, maybe I'll give him the middle name of Theodore. Heh, see what I did there?
Me: ... *Sigh*

Current Mood: confused confused

*in her best sing song voice*

"I can call you Betty and Betty, you can call me, you can call me Al..............
Call me Aalllllll...."

Um hello. Did he just skip the 80's? I knew he was an old man, but I didn't realize "how" old.....

^_~

I know!

He's never heard of "Got My Mind Set On You" by George Harrison either! Geesh.

Holy shit, Alexis Denisof was in that video!!

Wow, it's been far too long since I've seen that lovely video! Thanks for the nostalgia. ^_^

Albert Simon is the name of a magician character in the Shadow Hearts series, as a heads up. You should tell him this.

Done!

He... doesn't seem to care. *Shrug* I tried!

Would not have known who Paul Simon was.

Would not have known what the song was.

If you had mentioned Simon and Garfunkle?--Of course I know who they are! Couldn't tell you a specific song they did though.

Did you hear that, gailadora? I want that up on the list of differences between the two of us!

He was clearly under a rock for a decade. ;P

Well see, seperated at birth. You were listening to the 80 music, he was under a rock.

*shrug*

What was he on in the 80s?

...and can I have some?

Doooood. That's pretty bad. LOL

Clearly, the man discovered 'special brownies' and didn't share with the class!
lirazel From: lirazel Date: July 22nd, 2008 12:20 am (UTC) (Link)
You can call me Al any time!

Right now, though, I'm tninking more about that boy in the bubble and the baby with the baboon's heart.

*thinks some more, beats CF upside the haid with a Bridge Over Troubled Water, or possibly the 49th Street Bridgem then scrawls a Poem on the Underground Wall and moves on.*
