Re: "Thanks for the dance" - the new album

Some links to reviews. If you only have time to read one, I'd recommend Rolling Stone. It's very well written by someone who seems to get Leonard.

Re: In search of a poem (‘will you fumble with a candle in the furnace of the Lord’)

A small piece of the puzzle. Gordana, who is a member here, has provided the exhibit where Leonard recites the line.

Leonard recites the line at the one minute mark.

No, I don't know where the line comes from, but you definitely have made me curious. I'll see what I can find out. The line is very intriguing.

Re: In search of a poem (‘will you fumble with a candle in the furnace of the Lord’)

Is this your post? It's the video of Leonard reading that line recorded at his exhibition at the Jewish Museum. http://pixofo.com/post/2110007862079447988_471444714 It actually is more audio, as the video looks like there are stars floating through the air. Could this be the Depression Chamber exhib...

Re: Leonard Cohen's statue will be unveiled in Vilnius

I have to say I loved this statute the minute I saw it. It is so Leonard, the head lifted as if beseeching heaven, the lips slightly parted, the long thin neck, the ill-fitting suit, the hands clutched into fists and pulled towards the chest, and even the toes turned slightly inward. He is overflowi...
