Thanks for the good times - now let's share them!

Postby lklassen » Thu Aug 07, 2008 4:59 am

Hi everyone!

The 2008 LC fest went great.. Fantastic music, fantastic fans - everything we could have hoped for.

Now, I know many of you were filming and photographing the events. If you have any videos or photos to share, pls send them to me at cohenites@gmail.com and I will post them on the blog (or our youtube account). PLEASE share them -- why make others guess how great your photos are?

:) Thanks again! I had a great time getting to know all of you

Hi Lila
Eija and I are safely back home after a magnificent trip to Edmonton and the Canadian Rockies. Thanks to all of you for your hard work to make the Event so successful! We have "some" photos of the Event and will start sorting them as soon as I've got my professional tasks balanced after being away for almost three weeks. We will probably start by uploading a selection of the best shots to a photo gallery. Will give the link when done!

Adding my thanks to Kim, Lila and others for a wonderful time in Edmonton. It was great to see old friends and to make some new ones too.

(I tried to avoid photos since I've been overeating the past few years and it shows. But, what the hell, friends stick by you through "thick and thin". Nice to have spent time with those of you at the event!)

Hello everyone! This is my first post on the forum. I loved every minute of my stay in Edmonton. All of the concerts were excellent. I am already thinking about Poland even though it's two years from now. Dar, please call me when you have a chance. Thanks.

Hi Lila
Thanks for a wonderful event in Edmonton . We are safely back home in Yorkshire England after spending a few days in Vancouver . We have some fantastic memories of our time in Edmonton and will post some photos when time allows . To tell you the truth we have been too busy listening to Kris Kristofferson . Thanks for that Dar !

Lila,

Your Edmonton event was fantastic and it was great to catch up with old friends and make some new ones! :D As for the program, there was such a variety of interesting and excellent concerts/performances/events. 8) However, my photos of these were generally disappointing! :( Anyway, I'll see if there are any worth including and I will send you the same.

Cheers :)

I've been looking through the various links for photographs of this Event. Are there none that actually have the names of the people in the photos. There are some, who many have never met; yet, who attended Edmonton. It would really be nice to know who is who in the photos, so you can pinpoint them. If there are some photos with names, could someone please provide a link? Thanks.

Many of the people are tagged on the images in FaceBook:

We could tag more but the untagged people are people you already know mainly. It's OK, Leonard is becoming a mainstream interest now. There will be more and more people you do not recognize attending his concerts and celebrating his work. That is a very good thing, not something to complain about!

All the best. - KIm

Oh, good, thanks for the link. Names are always good with me.

I'm exuberant that Leonard is getting the worldwide recognition he has always deserved.

Hmmm. I'm not seeing the tags. Even if some are known to me, though... there's a whole bunch more now that they're not known to. It must be a pain to include the names, but it's soooo nice to know as you look.

The names appear as you mouse over the faces, Maarten Massa just added 22 more tags.
