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 ...

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

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...

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

Hi 4! Thank you very much for the link to the cover of the Stranger Song (one of my favorites of course)! I loved it! I was scared before seeing it that they might massacre the tune or the lyrics. Thankfully they didn't do either! Unless you would call the Doors segue a massacre, which I wouldn't. I...

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

I also searched for a theater showing it on the West Coast from Seattle to San Diego but with no success. Thank you for the postings for a DVD source. I see it says that the format may not play outside of Europe, but I have purchased dvd's saying that before, and they usually (?) work. Has anyone pu...

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

Hello again. After a break to read a couple of guidebooks on Greece and Rome, and a detour (still in progress) to re-read The Emperor Series by Conn Iggulden, I have at last been able to finish reading Stranger Songs, and yes B4, it does seem like a general overall view of Leonard's work so far. It ...

Re: Healing of the Spirit: The Genius of Leonard Cohen

Thank you Jarkko for clearing that up. I will look forward to seeing the exhibit in San Francisco next year then! Dave will be glad to hear that Leonard isn't getting us into anything else until then ... at least not anything out of town! :)

Re: Healing of the Spirit: The Genius of Leonard Cohen

Thank you for the article. It was good! I especially liked reading how someone else is playing catch up just like me. ;-) I am confused about one thing though. The article said the exhibit will be going to San Francisco next (in Sep) then on to Copenhagen; however, the museum hosting it in SFO does ...
