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

I am trying to completely clean my desk off before the Montreal event, so finding time to post anything meaningful is difficult. However, I am reading this thread regularly and with interest. Here is proof (akin to the clocks a night watchman punches to prove he is making his rounds): I developed a ...

Re: Leonard's stage sound system

I think it might show up in the credits for Live In London, check that out.

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

Calling MaryB, Mary, you saw Leonard three times in 2008 when he first returned to the stage, we would love to hear your thoughts about the atmosphere at the venues before the concerts, the concerts themselves, post-concert meetups, etc. I know some impressions may have been erased over the nine yea...

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

Sorry, composed a reasonable (but hardly compelling) message this morning concerning the Old Ideas/Popular Problems/You Want it Darker Trilogy, but I mis-submitted it, and now it is gone in the ether. Have no appetite to recompose it, but one point I recall is that the reason we may like to lump the...

Re: MONTREAL: TICKETS, LINKS AND PASSWORD

Question about Montreal Welcome Package: I ordered 4 concert tickets plus 2 Montreal Welcome Package. I elected to receive tickets by mail, and they arrived on a timely basis. However, none of the tickets reference the Montreal Welcome Package at all (although the Welcome Package is referenced on th...

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

I recall reading some place that Leonard had been working on and off for years to come up with English lyrics for La Manic, but he was never satisfied with the result. Or am I thinking of a different unfinished project? B4, come to the rescue! Had the privilege of hearing La Manic live, and as might...

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

This Thread: Vickie wanted me to come up with a topic dealing with something from Cohen's last three albums. I did come up with an idea, but am not entirely happy with it, so I would rather defer to someone else--maybe someone down under? Also, we continue to drift a little away from LC here. If oth...

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

To continue with the canine theme: Jean, you are a clever dog! Through his posts (at least many of them) Jean has subtly urged/enticed/dared the reader to reflect on and contemplate the deepest of matters ("the stuff Leonard Cohen studied"). Reflection and contemplation are processes that I think al...

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

Oh how I have underestimated my friends here. Concentrating only on the trees of the relationships of the word/phrase pairs I missed the forest of the overall message, and threw in the towel by invoking "Dave's Rule." Now you all have me convinced that this song is all about the betweens themselves,...

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

Not meaning to be dismissive of Jean's attempt, but I fear I have dispatched you all on a fool's errand! I wrote the 15 "Love Calls You by Your Name" phrases down, and pondered them from every stance and angle that I could think of. It was not difficult to come up with connections between the two no...

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...
