Re: Another film about Marianne's life & Leonard & Hydra

Thanks, Jarkko! I’ve not seen the recent Words of Love film but I’m glad I watched this “another” one! What an infectious, warm personality has Marianne! No pretensions here – so down to earth! Even though I only understood the English spoken parts the feeling of the whole film still comes through. ...

Re: Holiday Wishes 2019

Thanks, Jarkko and Eija for all your seasonal greetings! I’m directing healing thoughts to Eija and as always, her ice creations have a most welcomed cooling effect where I am. Hopefully, I will make it reciprocal with this image and send everyone in the grip of a Northern Hemisphere winter, some wa...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Hey you guys,
I'm not ignoring you and I just wanted to say that I've been really busy lately with Christmas stuff and other things happening. So forgive me, but my brain is not into dissecting or discussing this album at the moment. I'll see what happens later :)

Re: not quite the end?

I've posted this in the album thread https://www.leonardcohenforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=38625&start=195#p373276 and seeing the title of this thread I thought I'd add the info here too because maybe Adam is referring to "Captain" below as well as in Geoffrey's initial post above. Thanks Maarten fo...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

I am making a wish regarding the track It's Torn and guessing it will be related to the poster I received from 4 after we attended the Tower of Song tribute in Montreal..... And your wish has been granted! Thank you for sharing B4! I can't help but wonder what was so grim about the summer of 2007 i...

Re: "Thanks for the dance" - the new album

Love this archetypal LC line from It's Torn in the Quietus one - One of the darkest tracks, ‘Its Torn’ employs a murky tone alongside moments of simple brilliance, with typical commentary on an unknown topic: ‘the lie in what’s holy, the light in what’s not’. I have listened to all the songs and no...
