Re: never-ending gallery

...take an important figure like van gogh for example... Van Gogh (I pronounce it Van Go) is one of my favourite painters -- I love his work! I always remember the first time I saw some of his paintings in an art gallery -- I had previously only ever seen pictures of them: they were so vivid and fr...

Re: never-ending gallery

...you are so fortunate to have this exceptional item in your possession. apart from its musical voice, it has great aesthetic value, and one's mood could be lifted merely by gazing upon its visual attractiveness... Indeed, I am very fortunate -- it is a privilege to be able to play a beautiful his...

...couldn't agree with you more, lisa. they're not my words, but you know that... Indeed! 8) Want to see what I've been doing this week? A new instrument joined my collection the other day: a Romantic guitar built in France in 1830! For those paying attention, that was the same year that the Pagani...

Re: never-ending gallery

"Look, you're gonna have to serve somebody, Bob" I think that statement is a fallacy: nobody has to serve anybody! Making it an either-or proposition -- God or the Devil -- is not only a false dichotomy, but a fantasy, because it can be reasonably argued that neither exists! Even if they ...

Yes, I did find it! :D


Your above sketch reminded me of hearing "A Singer Must Die" at one of Leonard's concerts in Las Vegas about 14 years ago -- he played it solo, it was quite a treat, totally unexpected!

Re: LC Candlelight Tribute Concert in Montreal

These candlelight concerts seem to be quite popular -- there are always a bunch of them in my city, but we don't have stunning venues like Montreal. Most of the concerts feature tributes to pop and rock singers and groups, playing arrangements of their songs by a string quartet: currently Queen, ABB...

...your left hand is holding something but it's too blurry to identify. i would imagine you are about 18 months and your sister five years or just under. ... once again, this was so unexpected - thank you a hundred times! :) Glad you enjoyed the photo -- we do look rather cute!

Re: never-ending gallery

My pleasure!

How about a picture? A photo, not recent. I'm the little one, with my older sister. We were wearing one of many matching outfits that were inflicted upon us throughout our childhood.

Re: Mysterious Leonard Cohen "1967 studio sessions" album - any information?

Is the harpischord synonymous to a grand piano? No. This is not the place to be asking random questions about instruments -- this is a thread about Cohen's 1967 studio sessions. Please refrain from going off topic and asking unrelated questions to which you could easily find answers online with a q...

Re: never-ending gallery

i presume there exists original handwritten letters and compositional scores? ... Yes, loads of them -- not hard to find examples online -- Beethoven's handwriting often leant to the right (when it wasn't madly chaotic), which can indicate right-handedness, and in portraits he was depicted holding ...

I like the way you did the light in the above sketch -- totally gives the impression of the woman standing in the shadows, very cool! Am I correct that you used blue paper? It's a great sketch!

Re: It was the Hat, Afterall (Canvas bag)

Try posting this in the Collectors' and Traders' Corner: https://www.leonardcohenforum.com/viewforum.php?f=12 Maybe somebody will be searching for one of these. It is worth whatever somebody wants to pay for it, thus the value is purely subjective. I wouldn't count on it solving your financial woes.
