Has anyone got a spare ticket for the Hydra show tomorrow afternoon?

I am willing to take it off you for no charge!

Mickey - I'm sorry too. I gave my spare ticket to Elvis (I believe a King outranks a Lord).

Thank you for admitting to breaking the Law. I had no option but to throw Jarkko in the Hydra Harbour. He remains there with his friend, Bob.

Michael - How could you do such a mean thing to Jarkko?

The Hydra show was exceptional! The highlight was The Partisan, which LC dedicated to the subjects of Emperor Mickey of One who are struggling for the freedom to listen to Bird on a Wire.

Things are worse than we first thought.

The Best of Leonard Cohen has been withdrawn with immediate effect.
It is to be reissued WITHOUT Bird on the wire.
I believe internet filters are already in place restrict access to this great song.
Something needs to be done quickly.
but how can a mere mortal stand up to an emperor?

all our lives would be better if we had never heard lines about bleedin' ribbons, books, knights and old fashioned hookers, or whatever he dirges on about in his famous blue mistake.And never forget, Loyal Subjects, I must be the only person to have recited a poem of disapproval of one of his songs to the man himself, standing just yards away, and who has the damn impudence to listen benignly and smile gracefully. Don't you just hate people blessed with such extraordinary grace.

I for one know nothing of the poem of which you speak . Please enlighten us.

also by the way I have received yet another email from someone who claims to be the entertainment trainee sub-editor of the Tanzania Chronicle Weekly Digest Magazine Entertainment Section.

He claims that they are soon to run an exclusive under the headline "THE SONGS THAT WILL DIVIDE THE NATION"

He claims that the finalists in the Tanzania X Factor final will sing one of two themed songs. As the finalists are of similar stardard he feels the choice of song will be the decisive factor.

And the songs in no particular order will be.........................................................................................

BIRDY ON THE WIRE
AND..............................................................................
THE BIRDY SONG.

I have very little faith now in the accuracy of this information.

I first recited it at the Montreal Event, about 60 years ago. It begins
"there's a Bird on the Wire
shoot her, shoot her,
time for Tweety to expire
no more points as a frequent flyer"

blah blah etc. too boring to give you the rest but Leonard obviously forgave me

thank you Ugg Cheap boot person for bringing this up again.
I had almost forgotten about that Mickey-one guy who used to post here so long ago - he was kind of a funny guy.
Nice picture of him and some dude.

.. I just came upon your comment, I.F.. you know, you have this unique way of finding this very special section of my funny bone.. the I.F. section.. (and it really makes me laugh)..

.. but you know, that photo is terribly powerful for me.. I mean, to see them both there together like that.. I really could -- well, faint, to be quite honest.. do you think I need professional hel -- wait, I am getting professional help.. oh, and my therapist thinks I'm just tops (!).. On my advice she bought the Essentials.. and concurred with Leonard, that there ain't no cure.. (hmm.. maybe I should be charging her)..
