Re: 'Going Clear'

Sorry for the delay with this response, John. Wikipedia has quite an extensive article on L. Ron Hubbard. One item that caught my eye was as follows: (under sub-topic: Scientology) "In March 1969, the Greek Government branded L. Ron Hubbard and his group of 200 disciples "undesirables". The group ha...

Re: 'Going Clear'

Hi John, Yes George knew Leonard from his earliest Hydra days. (Check out Nadel's index: "George Lialios" pgs. 81-2, 210) Nadel interviewed him while doing research for the book. George is a close friend of mine as is his family. They came and stayed with me while visiting L.A. in 2007. I lived at h...

Re: 'Going Clear'

Hydriot is right on target. "clearing" is the methodology employed (using an "E-meter') by Scientology to rid its adherents of faulty habits, beliefs and pathologies which hinder them from becoming full "Thetans." LC and a number of other Hydra inhabitants including his and my good friend George L. ...

Re: Leonard in photo album about Lagoudera-Hydra

(smile) thanks Hydriot - that's what I thought - He certainly is the nicest one in the family - if you ask me - such a sweet man.
Hope you are having a good summer in London.

Re: Leonard in photo album about Lagoudera-Hydra

Yasou Hydtriot (and Dem), When I lived on Hydra in 1973, the back room of Katsika's was closed and just the grocery store was open - but Chuck & Gordon still held court in front and many times I joined them. I also shopped at Katsika's on occasion but more often used the center port grocery store re...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Oslo, August 6, 2010

Jesus, you guys! If I knew this kind of ludicrous psychobabble speculation was going to be precipitated by my sharing a very magical moment in my life - I would never have posted it publicly. Leonard and Marianne were and are both incredibly kind, loving and respectful people who both deserve better...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Oslo, August 6, 2010

Since this is under discussion, and I think it is in the biography, here's what Marianne (and we always pronounced it ma -ri -an eh - Geoffrey) told me in 1973 on Hydra about the genesis of Bird on a Wire: When they first moved into Leonard's little house, there was no electricity at all on Hydra, o...

Re: The cat's asleep on the chair

I'm not sure if the song refers to the same one, but when I lived on Hydra in 1973, Leonard had a cat, a plain old tabby, who he called "Edward"

Re: Lines that get you every time

"So nightly I renew my idle duty
I touch her here and there I know my place
I kiss her open mouth and I praise her beauty
And people call me traitor to my face"

Oh yeah, that one always gets me!

Re: John Prine

Thanks for the info and links Steven/Sturgesse et al - kind of ironic isn't it that both Ebert and Prine have suffered disfiguring cancers? Fortunate for both of them and for all of us neither lost their "voice" though Ebert's remains only in print now but luckily Prine is able to keep on singing.
