Re: never-ending rivalry

Hey, Godfrey ...How about we find some spare time which simultaneously doesn’t work for either of us. Then Für Elise or Homer, or some other admiring fan, posts a subject and we race to complete our art. I write one of my witty pomes and you doodle one of your witty pics. Lisa then marks each for s...

Re: never-ending gallery

P.S. By the way Geoffrey, interesting colours and styles in those last two portraits of Leonard. The one dated 19th Aug looks a bit like stained glass. Variety is the spice of life, after all, is it not? :D Incidentally, William Cowper wrote, "Variety's the very spice of life, that gives it all its ...

Re: never-ending musicality

...Then Für Elise ... ... such a bagatelle. ... allow me to add a little culture into your life ... Definitely, one can never get enough of the great Ludwig van B, played here with tremendous subtlety and nuance by Alfred Brendel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtwFOOOoGlo By the way, it is Beetho...

Re: Need a help

MaxP:

Did you just step out of a time machine from 2007? What you have written about happened 12 years ago!

What, precisely, do you "need a help" with, aside from being pointed to the fact that it is now 2019?

Re: never-ending gallery

..i am considering retiring from this job as resident illustrator, as age is gaining ground, and in any case feel saturation point has begun to reach these doodles of leonard. ...that inspired me to scrawl a rapid picture of him based on a bootleg CD cover that jarkko posted... Since inspiration is...

Re: never-ending gallery

Hi Lisa, I have read the book and loved it. Much easier to "grasp" as a script that I had expected. And then ... the wonderful Postscript discussing the various sources that Frayn drew on to create this masterpiece. Thank you again for pointing me in its direction. I will read it again soon as I mu...

Re: never-ending dairy

Thank you Lisa for returning this forum to the competing artistic merits of different ice-creams. Leonard Cohen, known elsewhere as Mister Softee, will be highly pleased. Personally, I find Häagen-Dazs ice-creams to be too heavy -- I prefer a lighter consistency in my ice cream treats, a bit more o...

Re: Leonard and e e cummings

Thanks for this Lisa. I agree that all writers are - consciously or unconsciously - influenced by everything they read. And we know that Leonard was extremely well-read! I was just struck by the consonance of Suzanne and the cummings poem and wondered if anyone had uncovered any other examples ... ...

Re: Leonard and e e cummings

...I am still surprised that I can discover no formal research of the links between Cohen and cummings. Maybe someone should put this forward as a fit subject for a D. Lit. thesis ...? I suspect that the links are tenuous at best, and any formal research would uncover nothing more than a few words ...

Re: Copenhagen

Thank you again, Lisa. I have found the book on Amazon, but can I just check with you that it is written in novel form, rather than in script form. In my view scripts are meant to be performed by someone else for me to see and hear. ... I have also tracked down the DVD, but it is region 2 (UK) and ...

Re: never-ending gallery

...thank you Lisa. You are very welcome! As it turns out, I have just watched the BBC film version of Copenhagen (I managed to obtain a copy on DVD after mentioning it yesterday), and it is definitely worth seeking out. It has a rather different visual atmosphere compared to the austere set of the ...

Re: never-ending theory

... it's hard to know for sure ;-) https://youtu.be/OkVpMAbNOAo If you are truly interested in this sort of thing, one of the most fascinating plays I ever saw was "Copenhagen" by Michael Frayn, which provides an account of a meeting between Werner Heisenberg and Niels Bohr in 1941. I absolutely lo...
