Re: "A new album of original Leonard Cohen songs is in the works"

Finally our patience may be rewarded!

Am hoping that Adam has asked Patrick Leonard to become involved in this project (or more greedily, these projects), Patrick Leonard apparently contributed quite a bit to the great music on LC's final three albums.

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

Vickie,

I met an LC fan in a used book store in Missoula, Montana about a week ago. Not Idaho, but just across the border. Was hoping to pick up one of his poetry books, but unfortunately none were in inventory at the time.

Re: allow me to litter this forum one last time

Geoffrey, that is, I would say, the opposite of litter. I love it to the point that I want it all my own. If interested in selling, please send me a PM.

In any case, please do not suspend your contributions here.

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

It has been years since I read Beautiful Losers, the scene I remember most vividly is the one with the spilled wine. There are others, but they are lost in the fog of passing time. Maybe a quick re-read is in order. While nothing, absolutely nothing, about sex can shock us these days, not so when Be...

Re: Tower of Song Tribute on USA TV/DVD Release

Thanks for the heads-up bigdee, will watch on PBS Channel 39 later today. Since I am not sure about which version the DVD being offered is, will probably wait to buy the longer version when it is eventually released.

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

Hi Bev, Thanks for the Adelaide links, I found time to look at everything there. It sure must have been an exciting time, not just the concert of course, but the experience of interacting with old and new Cohen fans. Sad that all of those days are past, but I always remind myself how lucky Joann and...

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

Bev, A belated happy birthday from NA! Now that you've just reheard the final Australian concert, you might be in a mood to go through your memories of the event and recount them to us here. Given your thoughtful and perceptive nature, I for one would find it to be very interesting reading. I am cou...

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

I am surprised you added my name to the advanced diploma. After my failing performance on the test, I feared my teaching credentials and tenure would be revoked. After a very long hiatus, I studied a good part of Jean's FBR/Love Calls You/Sing Another Song/Joan of Arc missive last night. I am still ...

Re: TEN YEARS 2008-2018

An Idea? Tomsakic's post prompted the following idea: Why not use this "Ten Years" thread to commemorate the concerts of the Grand Tour, one-by-one, on their tenth anniversaries? For example, any forum members who attended the Frederickton concert could post their thoughts and recollections now. The...

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

Yesterday I spent some time at the Cohencentric site. For some reason I totally forget about it for weeks, I do not know why since it often has things of interest. I came across something you might want to read, about Javier Mas. By now it should be no secret that I admire Javier a lot, for his musi...

B4, maybe you were right about "putting my glasses on." I swear I did not notice the new avatar! Now that is just...just...yes, I have to use the "A" word...awesome. If we meet at Hydra in 2019, you have to promise to wear it so I can see it. I scanned your quiz and will take it later. But the initi...

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

A forum post in the "news" section today titled, "Leonard Cohen, Philosopher" has a link to a lecture by the head of the Philosophy Department at Maynooth University in Ireland. In it he spends a great deal of time analyzing "Steer Your Way," which has become one of my favorite LC songs. I recommend...

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

I was thinking about the Montreal Memorial Concert, and wondering when the powers that be will get around to releasing a DVD of the performance (soon I am hoping). This led me to look around on youtube to see if any videos by concertgoers had been posted there, and I found several, but most were rat...
