1960's acquaintance of Leonard interviewed

The link below is to a Radio National interview of one of our ABC Radio broadcasters, Julie Copeland, who back in the late 1960’s knew Leonard and who furthermore was a very good friend of Aviva Cantor (a partner of Irving Layton). You can hear what she says about Leonard and Hydra etc. at about the...

'We Go Home' in WorkSafe advert

Re: Google Street View goes to Hydra

Hi Goldin,

Yes, I only pop in occasionally these days and thought this was a fresh topic, as I assumed otherwise Dem would have posted it in that thread you started and referred me to; but never mind, that was not the case. ;-)

Cheers,
Andrew :)

RIP Demis Roussos

It was sad to hear of Demis Roussos's passing. I remember well when he had a number of hits in the mid 70's such as the "From Souvenirs to Souvenirs". 8)

Apart from his high-pitched voice, I dug his cool kaftans. ;-)

Re: 12 Leonard Cohen Albums, Ranked From Worst to Best

Me too, regarding 'Recent Songs'. :wink: Ranking may make interesting reading, but when it comes to works of art, is so fraught with the subjectivity that relates to taste and assessment of merit. I've noticed there is a trend to publish lists/rankings on all sorts of subjects (online and in printed...

RIP Toowoomba Cohen Event

I woke up this morning thinking about Leonard and then with a certain sad nostalgia about the demise of our long running Toowoomba Cohen Event, which reached the ripe old age of 20 last year. :( This annual Leonard Cohen birthday celebration started in 1993, just as an idea, so it is rather nice tha...

Iconic 'performance artist' quotes Leonard

I saw a documentary tonight on Marina Abramovic, who has been described as the "grandmother of performance art" and I then went hunting for more information about her and her performance at MOMA (New York) in 2010, entitled "The Artist is Present" (see here: http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/exhibi...
