Re: September 21 - Leonard's birthday

Happy Birthday, dear Leonard. Bittersweet this first one without you in our midst. I imagine you still being touched and bemused by all the fuss wherever you are, yet neither you nor us would have it any other way. I miss Leonard, and occasions such as this heighten that entanglement of gratitude an...

Re: Important Announcement in August/September

I'm very glad to hear that whatever the announcement, this site will continue to be up and running. As for the special news, I hope that it includes the opening of at least some of the sealed boxes at Thomas Fisher Library. Anything else I'll consider a bonus, but I trust it'll be done with the high...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Forever came far too soon, Leonard; it's so hard to accept that this was now your time. This is just one of the most difficult heartrending posts... I don't have the words for how sad I feel... I waited to express perfectly, find just the most fitting ways to say how much I love your last album, but...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

So we've got: "I'm ready to die" "... not ready to die" "I said I was ready to die. I think that has been exaggerated. I propose to live forever. Thanks for coming friends, I hope we can do this again another time. I intend to live until 120" "Some guys you just can't trust!" Well then, we'll just h...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

*sigh* well I wish I had the words to encompass all that this article has left me feeling, some weaving of being deeply moved by the spirit of the enterprise and being arrested at such bare expressions acknowledging the finalities. On the one hand, to see yet try to keep doing in the face of an inev...

Re: HAPPY 82nd BIRTHDAY LEONARD!!

Inexcusably late, still I want to extend these birthday greetings to Leonard, hoping your day was wonderful and that each one since has been and will be at least as good, if not better; for any rough days in between, I hope you are graced with a strong steady vessel. I'm ever grateful for your words...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

What great news! Can't wait to hear Leonard's new album. Every era is "classic Cohen" and soon we'll be gifted with another addition to his ongoing creative journey. Listening to Leonard's music and reading his poetry is like sitting by glowing embers on cool autumn nights. Just when you thought fal...

Re: Bench updates

It's a pity that this project got delayed over what seems a rather petty grievance, but had it stayed in the disputed location it may have caused some some further angst upon completion. This way, Leonard's bench gets a peaceful spot with a still beautiful view. Thanks again for the updates and to a...

Happy (slightly belated) Birthday, dear Leonard! I hope it was filled with much joy and love and pleasant surprises. Thank you, as always, for the words and music. May you get many times over all that they have given us.

Re: "Hallelujah" - in Welsh

What a beautiful soulful rendition by Cor Glanaethwy. Their story is so touching, too. Combine the two and it's hard to watch it all the way through with a dry eye. Thanks for posting :)

Most enjoyable, thanks for sharing. Leonard seemed in good spirits and fine form. Eloquent, funny and witty, a pleasure to listen to.

Re: Popular Problems-"The Portrait of the Artist as an Old M

Hello Joe, thank you for your probing, sensitive review. I really don't know why people are criticizing this album. Sure it is 'polished,' but we dress for the occasion, and in the case of PP it is tastefully balanced, weaving a 'sound' and beautiful piercing sweet lyrics; it is finely wrought. (p.s...

Re: New Books 2014

Hi, recently I purchased Leonard Cohen on Leonard Cohen and "Popular Problems" (vinyl with CD) at Sunrise Records in Toronto. Luckily both were marked down 40% - 50%. Unfortunately, this is because both of the Sunrise Records stores in Toronto are closing (the Bloor/Yonge location may already be clo...
