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

B4, Thank you so much for all of your thoughts! And your links and special insight. ;-) You have probably guessed that I haven't read any of the posts regarding the new album yet, but I did follow your link, and yes, I do remember what you are referring to at the concert. I am so grateful to Adam fo...

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

I have at last finished reading the Book of Longing . By now, if you read any of this, you have an idea of my tastes, so you might guess that I loved this one, and you would be right. It was different than others. It isn’t that I feel Leonard wasn’t honest in other poetry books, but this one feels m...

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

Thank you for sharing B4! I can't help but wonder what was so grim about the summer of 2007 in Montreal.
Still, I love that poem, especially the last lines at the bottom of the print.

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

Vickie, on your "alpha journey" through the songs, you have caught up with the present, you are up to date. So there is nothing left to interfere with doing whatever you like. Of course Jean is right. Although I have pre-ordered Thanks for the Dance on Amazon, I will be waiting until Nov 22nd, or e...

Re: LC stamps & collectibles by Canada Post

I was able to order mine here in Oregon!
Poor Dave (my husband)... he doesn't even try to talk me out of anything 'Leonard' anymore, lol! :)

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

Hello everyone (B4, 4, Jean, Alan, and anyone else who has joined us on this 'alpha' journey), I very much need to talk to you guys right now. I am feeling a little bit overwhelmed. I am thinking about what B4 said a long time ago, regarding Leonard's last album (YWID). She said that she didn't want...

Re: Leonard's Voice

What a wonderful list of attributes! My favorites were "spread with smoke and subversive wit", because I love Leonard's sense of humor , and "Nobody can say the word "naked" as nakedly as Cohen...", because I have also been quite taken with the way he always said that word. I love the entire scope o...

Re: Is Leonard on SiriusXM's Tom Morello's "One Man Revolution" tomorrow?

Hi B4! Always good to hear from you! Thank you! I discovered that I could play episodes on demand with the SiriusXM app! I was able to catch the episode and YES, Leonard was on there! In his shows, Tom Morello focuses on all kinds of music that influenced him as the guitarist for Rage Against the Ma...

Re: Is Leonard on SiriusXM's Tom Morello's "One Man Revolution" tomorrow?

I was at work, so I wasn't able to listen and see if Tom Morello talked about Leonard or not. I am guessing not.
If anyone knew it about it, it would be someone here.
Thanks anyway!

Re: I have a few questions I want to ask

Welcome Celena ;-) I am new also, so I will (of course) have no answers to your questions, but I would like to hear them all the same! Maybe they will answer some of my own, right? Harold asked if you are Paul Auster. I am not sure what that means.... but it begs me to ask.... who shall we say is ca...

Sweet!! If anyone has this book on their mental list of "to read"s, you might want to move it to the top!

Is Leonard on SiriusXM's Tom Morello's "One Man Revolution" tomorrow?

Hi!, My husband, Dave, listens to the Lithium channel on SiriusXM (okay, I confess I listen too, lol!), and he told me yesterday that out of the blue he heard "So You Want It Darker", and today he heard that Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine) might be discussing Leonard on his One Man Rvolution ...

Thank you for the DVD info Marg! I will be looking forward to purchasing one when they are released, even though I was able to see the movie finally! Dave and I saw it on Sunday at a little theater in Portland, OR called 'Living Room Theaters'. It is a small venue that shows about 7 movies in differ...

Re: New LC bio in French: LC - the man who saw the angels fall

I love the idea of "undercover archangel" as well, so I'm also hoping it will be translated into English. [Although I believe "undercover ________ " (inserting any title sacred, profane, honored or disdained ... like angel, demon, priest, saint, poet-prostitute, doctor, drunk, etc..) would suit him ...

Re: Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love, film by Nick Broomfield

Hi B4! Yes, very interesting. Still, I think Marianne & Leonard is one of those movies most of us here would like to see.... no matter what people say about it! This reviewer is hopefully wrong in that it strikes him as not very good, but he did make me laugh when he said, "To Bloomfield, Cohen is a...
