Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

I guess all names vary with different accents :) the presenter at the start of this interview - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=570gL46ZmeI and Leonard just after that at the beginning of the same interview - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2pFG9WoxfU Yes, "vary", as in, some people get it wrong ....

Re: A tribute song, mastered at Abbey Road

Nice song, good lyrics, lovely production, well done! It has a definite 1960s folk vibe, with a sound reminiscent of early Dylan, I thought (to me, your voice and the steel-string guitar is a bit more Dylan than Cohen, but that's not a criticism!). Your friend has a good voice. Thank you for sharing...

Re: Leonard fans should watch Mr. Mercedes (also, a bit about Stephen King)

Some of Stephen [King]'s more literary and less creepy places to get started: Joyland (also relatively short, but quite possibly one of his best works) Hearts in Atlantis Bag of Bones And, I would add, at least in its film adaptation, "The Shawshank Redemption", which, although having nothing to do...

Re: ink blot

The responses from the other viewers baffle me. Isn't the first picture a Rorschach test? Geoffrey's predilection for psychology is well-known, and thus I assumed that he was planning to analyse our answers so as to reveal our deepest personality traits and other emotional characteristics. And then,...

No, it doesn't show at all, you hide your disdain very well! ;-)

Re: Madonna Performs 'Haleluya' At Met Gala 2018

Are there no depths some artists won't sink to? Does she even understand what the song is about, like 99% of all that sing it, they just sing the words in a way they think it sounds good but not understanding why Leonard wrote the verses he did. I like you, Vicomte, I think that you are a decent gu...

Re: the smoky life

Does anybody else miss cigarettes terribly? What do you miss about them? Going to restaurants/bars and being barely able to breathe without gasping and coughing because of the thick haze? Feeling like one's eyeballs have been rubbed with sandpaper as they sting from the assault of toxic smoke? Comi...

Re: the smoky life

I have to admit that this presumed spelling error has always bothered me less than the way Leonard sings the first two lines in the song. Although the printed lyrics that I have seen here and elsewhere are grammatically correct -- " I've never seen... " -- Leonard fails to pronounce the -"ve" part o...

By the way, if you happen to run into Solongleonard or Mickey_One, say "Hello" for me! You instruct me how to behave should I have the misfortune to "run into" those Charlatans.

Re: "the stars eat your body . . ."

Many of you would have read the script of Leonard's interview on French Television, c. 1994. It included these lines - "I think that what he's really talking about is not that part of fatism that we usually think about... Thank you, Sideways, that is precisely the interview that I was thinking of w...

Well, I know that Leonard's politics leaned rather, um, heavily towards the right, but I don't think that it is fair to call him a fatist.
