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.

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

Thank you B4 for the links. The way Leonard pronounces Anjani's name makes perfect sense now that I have heard it. And Matt, we are all guilty of a little bird slashing if you ask me, lol. I think it takes a certain kind of saint to accept things without wondering about all the how, what, where, and...

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

Thank you Mat! This talk about moths reminds me how when I first heard Take This Waltz, I thought the lyrics said "And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook, with the photographs there, and the MOTHS". I remember B4 commenting that others had thought the same. I still find myself singing "moths" inside m...

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

Hi Smokeylives! Wow, where'd you manage to find all his works at? Where there is a will, there is a way, or so they say. Not sure where your location is, but I have gotten the harder to find ones on Abebooks.com (Sshhhhhhh!) I haven't come up empty as yet, but I am not done either. Thanks for taking...

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

So nice to hear from you B4! I love that we have better internet, so I can finally listen to and watch the videos that you share! It is easy to see how Leonard would be drawn to Anjani's interpretation of his poetry into song! I haven't listened to her much yet, mostly because of the internet issues...
