Re: Waiting For The News To Come

Dear Jarkko, I can understand your feelings, yet- as already been stated several times now by some members, I don't think any of us was really somehow well, let's say "greedy", to get even more new posthumous material, at least not in a kind of disrespecting way (the thoughts on that Blues album and...

Re: I thought I saw an eagle!

I knew that story about those eagles' practice reminded me on something: In 455 BC, Aeschylus, the great playwriter known as the Father of Greek Tragedy, died in a most unexpected way. He was said to have been killed by a tortoise which was dropped by an eagle that had mistaken his head for a rock s...

TA-DA!!!! 6 - 6 - 6 - 6 - 6 - 6 !!! Who will miss this period of waiting and anticipation?? I certainly will!

Re: NOW THE COUNTDOWN: Waiting For The News To Come

Ten More Days of Patience. Well put! Quite alike another mile of silence the line that always strikes me. Me too. -- It makes me feel like composing a little rough text about it all. (Sorry, I guess it will be rough and sketchy, rather a kind of doggerel, but nonetheless heartfelt and honest): Ten ...

Tomorrow is 10 years since Lissadell. Just saying. And wishing....
Indeed.

And also don't forget the Double Event of 2010:

Mr. Leonard Cohen being inducted into the Songwriters' Hall of Fame
and also achieved a "Lifetime Achievement Award" at the Grammys.

Re: Where were you the first time you heard Leonard Cohen?

It was in 1998 when I came home from school and my mum sat in her comfy chair, listening to "Last Year's Man". I heard this voice, this music and I couldn't but stand there in the hall - still in my jacket and shoes- listening, completely mesmerized. When it was over I went to my mum's room and aske...

Re: Waiting For The News To Come

Let's hope for both! Yes, let's hope. On the other hand, as Patrick Leonard says in that article: "The R&B stuff, there’s very little of that that has him on it [vocally] , and that’s something that couldn’t exist without him. But we had many songs started and some of them finished, very near compl...

Re: Waiting For The News To Come

Wasn't Leonard supposedly working on new instrumental versions of some of his tracks with Patrick Leonard? Indeed, he was. They also were working on an R 'n B album too: https://ew.com/article/2016/11/11/leonard-cohen-patrick-leonard-rb-album/ For the latter, the R 'n B ablum, as the article says t...

I think I know what most certainly it will be NOT:

A collection of Leonard's short stories, of which we still know only three.

Re: Waiting For The News To Come

A little guess (and much greater wish)

May it be the mysterious song "Captain" discussed in the thread below..?

https://www.leonardcohenforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=38780

Very exciting...

At least August is not that far away anymore.
