This is my own little blog devoted to Star Wars, Princess Leia, Carrie Fisher, Carrie and Paul Simon's "crazy love" (Paul's term), cats, and various other things.
My user name is a deliberate misspelling of "triskadekaphile," which is someone who likes the number 13 (aka the opposite of a triskadekaphobe, which is someone who fears it). I personally think "trikadekaphile" sounds better. So THERE.
Sometimes I randomly wonder how Paul Simon would feel if he knew the only reason I got into his music in the first place was because I read his lyrics in Wishful Drinking…
My reply, expounded upon here:
I only got into his music (solo music, that is; I’d liked S&G for a while) because his relationship with Carrie always fascinated me.
It’s probably not that unusual. One could make a good case for the claim that his relationship with Carrie was the impetus behind his best work (“Hearts and Bones,” “Graceland”).
