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 p...

Re: The Future of our Hydra Meet-Ups

Jarkko and Eija, Though I’m a newbie to the forum and Hydra I can see what a profound impact your efforts have had on the lives of all the Cohenites. Your little internet pastime evolved into a truly Unified Heart of nationalities, languages and cultures. I, for one, feel privileged to be a part of ...

Re: Hydra 2019 - Recollections

Dear Jarkko and Eija: Thank you for putting together an awesome event. It was my first Hydra meet-up and it far exceeded my expectations. We met the first five Cohenites on the ferry to the island and the connection - not surprisingly - was instantaneous. More followed when we arrived and in a true ...

Re: Christie's auction: Write Me and Tell Me Your Heart: Leonard Cohen's Letters to Marianne

Frankly, I’m quite appalled at the thought. Call me old-fashioned but it seems so classless to be auctioning off personal letters. And Leonard’s at that!

Re: Matters of Vital Interest: A Forty-Year Friendship with Leonard Cohen

Now you got me interested... I wasn’t going to order it for fear it was just another production from someone trying to capitalize on LC’s passing. Your recommendations convinced me, so I will buy it.

Cheers,
Marg

Marg:
we will do a day tour (by boat and bus) to the ancient Amphitheater of Epidaurus
(Watch the video at http://epidavros.gr/en.html)
and other historical sites.
The route does not go close to Athens.
Perfect, Thank you so much.

Re: Invitation to our next Hydra Meetup (June 7-9, 2019)

Today I have registered the 150th participant, and it's clear that there will be a few more. This means that we have to do the Cinema Club night twice. In January I'm going to start discussions with Lakis about the program. The mainland trip is a must-to-do (we have so many first-timers), but he ha...

Re: Invitation to Ghent in August 2020, by Maarten Massa

Awesome news! Having been to Gent a number of times I can see why LC loved it. It’s so much like Old Montreal! Barring the unforeseen I plan to be there in 2020. Any idea about the timing?

Groetjes,
Margaret

Re: LC wins 2018 Grammy Award for You Want It Darker!

Welcome to the forum, MargRz! He he! I remember well that statement by Leonard :) And still speaking of Rock, I also remember the time he was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2008. LC said then: This is a very unlikely occasion for me. It is not a distinction that I coveted or even to ...

Re: LC wins 2018 Grammy Award for You Want It Darker!

This from LC’s acceptance speech on the 2010 lifetime achievement Grammy:
“(...) I’ve always been touched by the modesty of their interest in my work”. :D

Re: Montreal: Photo Request

Hi Jarkko, I’m new to this forum and still finding my way through it. Would you please provide more detail about the Budapest and Hydra meet ups, if available? I’ve been to the Montreal concert, but, like you, sat too far for any decent pics. Too bad I didn’t know you all were there - would have bee...
