Re: Anyone going to the Dec 4th Air Canada show?

I will also be in Toronto since it's an easy drive from Buffalo. Mrs. K. is oh so patient with my Leonard Cohen fandom since she stays home with the young'uns. Me and LC: 1985 Carnegie Hall, I think I was in the 25th row or so, I know it was the orchestra. I went with my friend Paula who I still mis...

Re: PRESALE TO ALL CONCERTS IN ONTARIO AND QUEBEC AREA - NOW

Looks like I'll be in the third row left in Toronto, it was expensive and well out of my usual price range, but I couldn't resist. If I were willing to go for the Diamond package I would have been in the front row center, but half a grand for a ticket is an amount I could never justify to Mrs. K. Ha...

See you there!

Re: How Would You Rate Old Ideas?

Rating Leonard Cohen albums is difficult, because there's the scale that rates them against everything and then there's the scale that rates a new album against the other works by the artist. On the first scale, "Old Ideas" represents a return to form after "Dear Heather", and is one of the better t...

Re: Mr. Cohen's Height

Actually, I always figured that as an old Jewish guy that Leonard Cohen would present himself as, well, an old Jewish guy! There are some Jewish men like my senator Chuck Schumer who are tall though (Chuck is VERY tall which I wouldn't have guessed until I met him). That being said I've finished my ...

A Letter To My Son

A recent event caused me to pen this open letter to my son, which I'd like to share with you. As the preciseness of Mr. Cohen's height becomes known I'll adjust that factoid as needed. Dear Son, When I think about the problems I’ve had in my life, my height has turned out to be among the least. Eve...

Hi Wendy - Yes, I have to exclude the hat otherwise it'll throw off my argument. Not that the hat isn't important, mind you.

Thanks for the info!

Mr. Cohen's Height

Hi! I'm writing an article to submit to my local newspaper on the subject of height (or lack thereof) and pointing out a couple of heroes of mine that are less than tall in stature. I was looking on the internet for some reference to Mr. Cohen's height, but all I can find is conjecture that he's 5'9...

Re: Tentative Schedule for the Madison Event 2012

To anyone who's feeling concerned about the length of the schedule, it is NOT necessary that you take an entire week for being there. Joe has simply been generous in offering us other things to do, as well, on either side of the official weekend of the Event. If that's all you can manage to attend,...

Re: For those first time folks considering registering...

I had found newsgroups as a format especially annoying, and I didn't join it despite my interest in Leonard Cohen (whom I've considered the greatest songwriter in the history of the English language since I was 19). As a result, I was what I thought was late to this community. How could I have ever ...

Re: Tentative Schedule for the Madison Event 2012

I am VERY excited to finally be able to attend my 2nd Leonard Cohen Event! The 2004 NYC Event was so great, having the opportunity to meet many new friends and share our mutual love for the work of the best songwriter in the history of the English language. Yes, and the concerts and actual "events" ...

Re: R.E.M. CALL IT A DAY

Leave it to the boys from R.E.M. to try and upstage Mr. Cohen on his birthday.

I had one other thing to say, only because someone's gonna say it .... It's the end of the world as we know it!
