Re: Just starting out...

Hi! My experiences with Leonard were similar to yours, in that the very first album of his that I heard (in my case, it was "I'm Your Man") was my absolute favourite and it is what got me hooked on his music in the first place, and when I bought more of his albums, at first I was a bit dis...

Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

...What I find hardest to believe is that among all of the people in my life that I have shared my love of music and poetry with through the years, not one of them ever urged me to listen to him. To me that is just amazing... Hi new person! I think it is best that you have found Leonard Cohen in yo...

Re: Sartre?

Don't know about the Sartre connection, but why do you want a "free" pdf? For one thing, I am quite sure that this book is under copyright, so a "free" pdf would be illegal. Also, there must be millions of copies of this book out there, a quick search on almost any online booksel...

Interesting (and rare?) 1966 Photo of Leonard

Hello all, The Winter 2016 edition of the University of Alberta's Alumni magazine included a small story about Leonard's time in Edmonton in 1966, as well as a photo of him from the U of A's archives. I thought that some of you might like to see it, as it is not one of the usual photos one sees. I h...

Re: "Leonard Cohen Albums From Worst To Best"

A great deal of digested food for thought here... No offence to you (as you did not write the review), but I would suggest that it is, in fact, an undigested, regurgitated mess, not worthy of any thought other than dismissal (because, we just wasted more than enough of our time reading it). What a ...

What a marvellous tribute, one that very much reflects my own thoughts of Leonard. Thank you for sharing this.

Re: Leonard As Humble Conduit

One of the main tenets of Esotericism (which is, essentially, a synthesis of ideas from philosophy, religion and spirituality) is that some musical artists are, in fact, conduits for the greater beings (gods and others who live in realms above and beyond the earthly realm). Music itself, in esoteric...

Re: Thanksgiving

On the occasion of Thanksgiving in the US, Joann and I would like to give thanks for these memories: PBS Television 2009--a serendipitous viewing of "Live in London" revealing that our favorite artist of yesteryear was alive, well, and still performing. This discovery wound up affecting o...

Re: Make Nov. 7th "Leonard Cohen Day"

As a Canadian, of course I am all in favour of a National Leonard Cohen Day, but I would vastly prefer it to be observed on September 21, the day of his birth. The fact that September 21 would coincide with the International Day of Peace would be quite fitting, I should think.

Re: Is anyone on this Forum poor?

Everybody on this forum is "rich", in that they have all, at some point, discovered the beautiful artistry of Leonard Cohen. He has made all of our lives richer through the gifts he has shared with us. Those who never "knew" him are the ones who are "poor", and they won...

It is called a "newsboy cap". A google search ought to help you find something similar. Good luck!
