Alright With Me

Song 3 of hopefully 14: Alright With Me http://fawm.org/songs/5178/#c25111 Sometimes my life lays out so neatly A line from there to here That's when I can see things completely I know I couldn't be just anywhere But I wish sometimes that I could go back And clean up the mess I made But it takes mor...

Re: LINKS TO MIAMI, ATLANTA, LOUISVILLE, WALLINGFORD, HAMILT

Welp, after all these years I am a bit annoyed at my "friend" Jarkko for having the presale start at 10:00 ET when he should have known that today of all days I was in an uninteruptable meeting away from my office all morning, and only got back 20 minutes ago! ;-) That being said (I feel MUCH better...

Hopefully the quality of the presale seats will be at the level it was on the 2012 tour! I coulda hit our man with a snowball from my seat at the Air Canada Centre, and I never had much of an arm to begin with!

Re: "Elaboration of a tube" line in "Going Home"?

The earthworm has long been used in elementary high school biology classes and described as a tube within a tube which led to complex evolutionary advances. Humans are no exception. Cohen uses the word "brief", either as a step in the direction of greater specialization or as an apocalyptic project...

Re: "Elaboration of a tube" line in "Going Home"?

Although there was already some discussion on that verse, but I guess it'd be better to have a separate thread about these words. He will speak these words of wisdom Like a sage, a man of vision Though he knows he’s really nothing But the brief elaboration of a tube So, as Jarkko said - it is >tube...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Toronto, Ontario - December 4-5, 2012

Another great concert tonight. Am I correct in thinking it was the tour premiere of Chelsea Hotel? Classic moment when Leonard called someone who wrote a bad review of the 1st concert a son of a bitch. I'm ok with missing "Chelsea Hotel" (there are a few dozen songs I wish he had played Tuesday and...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Toronto, Ontario - December 4-5, 2012

Question for Toronto concertgoers re: I Can't Forget As this was the first time on the North America leg since Bucharest, I am curious if LC did a voiceover poem eg., Roses are red...?

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Toronto, Ontario - December 4-5, 2012

Here is my December 4, 2012 concert report for you: Leonard Cohen is now 78 years old, considered by many devoted fans as the greatest songwriter in the history of English popular music. He has the finest, tightest ensemble currently performing as his backup band. What does he do? He starts his conc...

Y'know, that wasn't fair! You just nearly caused me to have a heart attack posting a thread called "Concert Report" BEFORE the concert takes place!
