Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Until someone comes up with a better topic, how about considering this: I was always struck by the word/phrase pairings in "Love Calls You by Your Name," that is, the fifteen pairings that all begin with "between the..." (But obviously not struck enough to make me sit down and study them!) So, can a...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

So....where were we? To resume things, here are some odds and ends: I recall that there is/was a "theory" that women are bad at judging distances. Without commenting on the validity of that theory, I note the following: Vickie said she initially thought that the Pillars of Creation photo might be ro...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

I have a time-consuming real-work project that I cannot put off any longer. Also, I have a sense I have been talking too much on this thread and not listening enough recently. Consequently, I am going to sit back for a week or so and just enjoy what you all have to say. But I would like to say somet...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Accumulated miscellany. Vickie: We are all teachers and are all students here in "Advanced Leonard Cohen" studies, and your insights are especially interesting because they come from the viewpoint of a "recent discover" of the subject matter. I always enjoy reading your snippets about your husband's...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Watched Live in Dublin midnight until almost 3:00 am; Joann was asleep, so I was joined only by Tyson, our tabby cat, who somehow didn't seem very interested. The first thing I noticed was something I now recall being discussed when the DVD came out--it didn't have the same live feeling as, for exam...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Thank you B4, I do enjoy making people laugh. And yes, it was your encouragement that goaded me into drawing the cartoons. I have to say that, now after trying myself, I am amazed at how difficult it is to draw a simple cartoon. While not apparent in my childish attempts, there are many aspects that...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Had a nice little post almost completed yesterday when a crash of thunder from an approaching storm knocked out my internet and erased it. I will try again. Out of curiosity I was looking at websites of some of Leonard's band to see if they have upcoming appearances in early November that would rule...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Jean, While I knew you resided in France and realized your name has French origins, I always thought of you having grown up in Great Britain. Why? Because of your use of the English language! Using a second language to order a restaurant meal or ask directions is one thing, using it to discuss relig...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Odds and Ends. B4, thank you for posting the NSFTOC alternative lyrics along with LC's comments about each song, it's always interesting to see his own thoughts about his songs. The alternative lyrics indicate to me that LC was always considering and analyzing his lyrics, even many years after they ...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Do I consider New Skin for the Old Ceremony to be Songs of Love and Hate 2? I have not read other comments yet so as not to be influenced. Alan's question surprised me, because I always felt the albums were as different as apples and oranges. While SOLAH is my favorite and most listened-to album, NS...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Quick post. I have not really paid much attention to Allan Showalter's site since the original one shut down, and today I thought I would take a quick look at what he's posted since his mention of this thread. Wow, there is an incredible amount of information, ranging from short tidbits of trivia to...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Interesting, Vickie, that you say Nadal's biography is your favorite. I loved it when I read it, but once Sylvie's came out, that became my favorite. Perhaps this is partly due to it including years not covered by Nadal, but if my memory serves me, I think Sylvie's research may have been more extens...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

I have a confession to make which I guess will shock some of you....I have NEVER been on a horse in my life! It's not as though I ever had any fear of horses, or that I grew up in a city, it's just that an opportunity never really presented itself. (I have petted horses, does that count for somethin...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Jean, Vickie asked about your small-print atheist comment, and I was curious as well. Thank you for your thoughtful elaboration. From what we know Leonard was open to all religions and spent his life exploring and considering them, but he always returned to Judaism. It seems that you also have deepl...
