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

ah Vickie, it’s always my pleasure to be of some help! ... B4- I hope it is truly of pleasure like you say. I have learned so much through you and the others on this site, that I feel I am greedy sometimes. Sorry it has taken me so long to respond! I read your post the day you sent it, and shared i...

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

Thank you Jarkko for posting this link to Adam's interview. I have only had chance to hear part of it on my lunch hour, but I look forward to hearing the rest and just wanted to say thanks!

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

B4, Thank you so much for your reply. I shared it with Dave. He is more of a music guy and not so much for the poetry, but since he knows you from our other thread, it helps me give credibility to Leonard's poetry. ;-) Poetry is so pure... you either like poetry for the poetry's sake or you don't. L...

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

Well… Thankfully, I didn’t pay too much for my copy of The Energy of Slaves, because it has suffered from travelling with me. It has been stuffed into the bottom of the tote bag I carry to work and back (along with the Oregon Driver’s Manual which I am supposed to be studying instead). It has been t...

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

PS- Regarding Beautiful Losers: When I lived in Idaho, I felt that I was the only Leonard Cohen fan alive, because every time I brought him up, people were like, "Leonard who??" (True, he was already gone when I first discovered him, so I probably missed the boat) But after finding the forum, I real...

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

Hi 4! Sorry I haven't responded for so long. No other excuse but that we are still reeling from our 2 moves and new jobs. In fact, we are just now in the middle of (aka: arguing about) building a shelter for our donkeys before the rains come. Thank you for bringing up the wine on the tablecloth agai...

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

At last. I finally had the chance to finish reading Beautiful Losers while coming back from picking up our donkeys in Idaho to bring them home to Oregon. The 7-hour trip was uneventful except for my worrying whether the donkeys were hot, hungry, thirsty, scared, car sick, or worse- had somehow burst...

Rufus Wainwright All These Poses Anniversary Tour 2018

So, now I am dragging Dave to see Rufus Wainwright at the Aladdin Theater in Portland on Nov 12, 2018, and it's not even going to be a weekend! Is there no end to what that man will put up with from me? :D Just kidding, I think he will like it! Is anyone else here going to any of the performances on...

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

Don't be sorry B4! You have been so generous in what you have shared, with links and lyrics already, and besides, I am still new to Leonard. With what he has “officially” recorded and published, I have plenty on my plate already! Maybe when I look for more, the links will be working again, lol. We a...

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

B4- Thank you for the links! Now that we have normal internet, limited only by speed, I feel like the proverbial kid in a candy store. In fact, just last night, I found out that we can access YouTube on our television now and watch it on the "big screen". I know that sounds as if I am coming from th...

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

Jean and B4- I am not too proud to admit that I was hoping I would hear from you. Thank you Jean for letting me know that I was understood. And B4- I didn't see this warning at first: If you're not ready for Book of Longing yet don't listen, but he does talk about Beautiful Losers :) I was very intr...

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

So. Beautiful Losers…. I am only about 1/3 way through this book, and so much has been said about it that I am almost afraid to comment. I will dive in anyway though. If you have read it, and even if you haven’t, you know or have heard how depraved, dirty, and just plain nasty it can be, so I won’t ...

Re: Tony Palmer releases 1972 concert footage on DVD

The pre-order package looks wonderful, but I will have to wait and see if it will be offered within reach of our budget. I love Leonard's performances during the 70s, so I am very tempted, but at that price it will have to wait.
