Re: Next Step: Charity projects

The bench is there. Hurrah and finally. Our thanks have to go to Jarkko fur his endurance in persecuting our goal. It´s like that sometimes: We decide something on the forum and leave the rest to Jarkko. As I consider Jarkko´s character, it was neither a small burden for him, to be in charge of spen...

LC Interview 1997 on Mount Baldy

Please forgive me if this has already been posted.
I just came over this 43 minutes video (it says 53 min, but it´s only 43) with Stina Dabrowski on the home of the Cohencentric website.
Really worth watching it.

How happy he is, how wise and how by himself!

Re: LC Walking Weekend (2009 - 2017)

Looks like yet another wonderful group. Glad to be part of it.
Thanks so much, Szilvia.
Judy - if this list is in chronologic order - I admire your talent to take your time, but not too much time.

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

(I gave my farewell on page 18 of this thread) There may be tristesse in many homes tonight. That must not be so. Leonard Cohen surely would not have wanted your tears. A great life of an outstanding man came to a good end. What privilege that we could be a small particle to it. Let´s celibrate him ...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

He was ready. Now he overcame the „preliminaries“. He gave the world all he had in him. Gave us so much. Worked to the end, You Want It Darker, left us with a great au revoir. At last he was permissioned to lay down the burden. No need to be sad. My feelings are with all who were close to him. With ...

Re: Nobel Laureate

... and to my opinion there is virtually no chance for another Nobel Prize for Literature to a singer for the next twenty years, no chance for Leonard Cohen so.
Would leave the Nobel for Peace ...
Good that neither Leonard Cohen nor his fans are eager for prizes. We don´t need them.

Re: Nobel Laureate

Why Bob Dylan?
Dylan is a great musician and songwriter.
But this is the Nobel Prize for Literature.
Are Dylan´s lyrics as good, as sophisticated, as wise as Cohen´s?
Has he done several books of poetry? Did he write two novels?
Why Bob Dylan and not Leonard Cohen?

Re: Sharon Robinson in Prague - who is going?

Mrs. Robinson´s concert in Prague was superb. A good mix of Leonard Cohen songs with co-written songs and her own songs. My favourites were Alexandra Leaving and The Letters. Intimate atmosphere. After concert we had the chance to talk to Mrs. Robinson a short while, get autographs and fotographs. S...

Re: Sharon Robinson in Prague - who is going?

Hi Maire and Pentti The concert starts at 20:00. I was thinking of meeting at a bar or restaurant close to the venue for a drink or light dinner before, say 18:00-19:15 for drinks or 17:15-19:15 for dinner. Would you like to join us? Drinks only or eat something as well? Actually I am bit short of t...
