What do you guys think about Celine Dion?
For her is it a home coming.
For her it would be a homecoming.
For me it would be a bathroom break.

Dan, it's clear you have hit upon something! It's a bit too late for Leonard to have risen on the third day, but it's the right time for his reincarnated life to begin!

Re: Like a Drunk in a Midnight Choir - Record Store Day 2017 vinyl

Hi Rand, I have a question for you. How did you get Terry Reid for this project? I've seen that he's out playing again but he must be a hard guy to pin down.

Otherwise, thank you VERY much for doing this tribute to our man!

Re: Bob Dylan Awarded Nobel Prize for Literature 2016

My letter today to the NY Times, I know the odds of publishing are astronomical but one never knows: Dear Sir or Madam, It was with mixed feelings that I read the article "Why Bob Dylan Shouldn't Have Gotten a Nobel" by Anna North in your October 13, 2016 edition. My initial reaction was satisfactio...

Re: "So long, Marianne. Leonard Cohen's final letter to his muse"

David, you are not alone, I was alarmed by it too. The only potential consolations I can think of, is that "very soon" is a relative term that can have a wide range of meaning; also, I'm sure Leonard meant to comfort Marianne by saying that they will soon be together again. So those thoughts might ...

Re: "Book of Mercy" in Hebrew - translated by Doron

Congratulations Doron! I remember the thread here in the forum with fondness, it was an amazing discussion that I never had the intellectual weight to contribute to. It was like sitting in on a lecture being taught by and to a room of geniuses, with me watching it in amazement wishing that I could b...

Re: Sadly, Judith Fitzgerald Has Passed Away

It is very sad for me to hear this news. I was in my mid 40's and finally writing with some frequency and some (say) skill, and here in the Forum Judith was my most dedicated and fierce supporter. Having someone at her level critique and compliment my writing was not only a compliment but the greate...

Re: Multiple identities

No, this would be a very watered-down version of those days, actually... everything John mentioned would have to happen on the same day, and it would go from there with a whole lot more. I should have added something like "and now John K. summarizes everything in a snarky manner" to my last post, '...

OMGasp!!1! First is Trollkind beating up a writer because being a well known and rich attorney who gets murderers off just isn't enough for him.

Re: Sad news: Arlene Dick has passed away

I've just read this sad news this afternoon. My deep condolences to Arlene's family. Arlene and I first communicated just last summer, shortly after she posted a link to my performance of "Going Home" at the Madison Event. I was so happy, surprised and complimented to be included in her blog, so I c...
