Art Garfunkel admits he likes to take things slowly. While promoting his new career-spanning compilation called, The Singer, he revealed that he doesn't even own a computer, telling Spinner.com, "I had an innate resistance from the very beginning. There's very little in the modern world that makes sense to me because it all seems to be about speed. It's all about wanting to do it faster. Faster is not always better. In fact, I think it's rarely better so I resist technology as much as I can. I mean, I look around today and see so many using speed to rush through life and get to the end faster. I'm in no rush."
Garfunkel says that usually likes to start his day by listening to music in the early morning hours: "I cherish those early hours and it's great to commune with what matters to you before the rest of the world faxes their way into your consciousness. The solitary thing is (laughs) the last shred of sanity in modern life."
