Re: MAC Exhibition for LC to tour

Update: First stop - San Francisco - I wonder if it will travel in the order listed above from San Francisco, but you would think Mexico City would be next :) But this is only part of the original exhibition so who knows! http://artist-at-large.com/2018/04/05/janet-cardiff-and-george-bures-miller-at...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

4, put your glasses on ;-) I wrote "above in my 2012 post" - so simply cast your eyes in that direction :)
It's only a few lines anyway.

Vickie, you're an old hand here now :)
Spread your wings and fly over the threads and feel free to land and talk on any one that takes your fancy!

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Haha! Vickie, The title of this thread is Along the way... Discovering Leonard’s Albums etc and that’s exactly what you have done with Do I Have To Dance All Night :) I have mentioned this song many times over the years on the forum in different threads and thought I had done it here too, but not so...

Re: Lissadell House seeks help naming Cohen Garden

Cindee, If we can go by what is written on the top of the notice at the entrance to the garden, it is simply called "Leonard Cohen Memorial Garden" and Leslie/mutti has previously suggested this name so kudos to her 8) 'Come Healing Gardens' 'Passing Through Gardens' 'Swimming Moon Gardens' 'Leonard...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Vickie, it’s always good to talk to you and others here too! And still speaking poetry on the music thread :) Having just said that, it reminds me How To Speak Poetry is an excellent “poem/prose” which covers four pages in Death Of A Lady’s Man. There are two poems here that also appear one each on ...

Re: Leonard's Handwriting Font

Interesting! I remember there was a font available in 2013 based on LC's handwriting in the Old Ideas album. Some discussion about that here - https://www.leonardcohenforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=34027&p=332773&hilit=font#p332773 The links don't work anymore but I think Cohencentric still uses it. ...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Vickie, Some of your speculations about relationships may be answered in Death Of A Lady’s Man poetry book. During an interview Leonard said, “There are the answers to all your questions in this book. All the answers are here; it’s all in here”. But see it in the context of that time. It is human na...

Re: MAC Exhibition for LC to tour

Wendy, It's good you were able to go so many times! And I'm a bit surprised to hear the volume of people visiting the exhibition! Whichever museums take the touring exhibition they're bound to have a sure fire hit on their hands. We have some fine museums here downunder so maybe we could get lucky a...

Re: Chelsea Hotel room 424

Wybe, Thanks for that explanation about the audio. I knew it was from the 1988 concerts with the first sentence from London and then most of Amsterdam (of course ;-) ) but I couldn't remember the reason I heard it from you those years ago. As you reminded me, it was the plaque dedication :) I'm gues...
