Re: CONCERT REPORT: Tel Aviv, Israel, Ramat Gan Stadium 9/24/09

More - from "manageware" Famous Blue Raincoat http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_l8W0kmZMk Editing - I love the title of the video "Leonard Cohen is israel." Simply unique - and rightfully so. I thought the title started with a typo and ended in a huge symbol. How amazing to hear people whisper or ev...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Tel Aviv, Israel, Ramat Gan Stadium 9/24/09

Wonderful to see this venue on the list! And thank you, Sturgess66, for the NYTimes article. I enjoyed reading it - a balanced, respectful and correct way of discussing the topic - especially after this spring's call for boycott drama. It has a sort of subliminal way of stating the Our Man was power...

Re: Norman? :-)

Dear all Cohenites in Israel, Enjoy the sunshine, enjoy LC's presence, enjoy the concert and tell us all about it afterwards! We can hardly wait to hear the news and see the videos on YouTube. We, the rest of known and unknown Cohenites who were not able to fly over, will be heart and soul with you ...

Re: A Video Celebration Of Leonard Cohen At 75

Fabulous, simply fabulous! This is not only a birthday present for Leonard, but a wonderful present for us all! Arlene put it perfectly indeed: " You are A Heck of a Sweet Guy " ! On a more personal level, thank you for doing it justice and including the 2008 birthday celebration from Bucharest, too...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Barcelona, September 21 (Leonard's birthday)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LEONARD !!! I wish I could be in Barcelona now... but I am sure that the audience there will give him moments of joy on this occasion. It was the same in Bucharest last year - 10,000 people sang "Happy Birthday" to him, it was raining but everybody stayed on, and all of us there were ...

Re: Questions and Answers concerning The Event, Poland etc.

Thank you, Mirek, for giving us a few hints. You have a good point with taxis at the airport - it is the same in Bucharest, as well. I shall be in Krakow for the first time, and I suppose several of us will, so any info would be of great help. But do not rush, there is plenty of time until then! Car...

Re: Questions and Answers concerning The Event, Poland etc.

Mirek, I kept wondering what you meant by "things to avoid". One, I am sure, would be "money changing in any places other than banks" - but can you be more specific about the things you had in mind when you said that? It would also be very useful to know some of the "culturally specific" things that...

There are no answers, there are only questions. I'm afraid that's how it will always be. But we have to keep trying to find the answers, each in our own way. Today is the beginning of the Jewish new year. Happy new year to all! Bob Goldstein, Ann Arbor, Michigan USA Wonderful words, and so true, to...

Re: LEONARD IS FEELING FINE

Actually, I think I read somewhere that there will be TWO concerts in Israel, one in the Palestinian area, (possibly Bethlehem but I am not sure now, correct me if I am wrong). The 47,000 tickets for the first of these two concerts were sold in a matter of days. May he be healthy and fit for this ch...

Re: Leonard collapsed in Valencia - but is doing well again

One word here as well : like all of us I hope he gets well soon! His impressive energy and health seem to have received a blow this time. He needs a break, that is for sure!
I wish him all the health in the world, and for many years from now!

Re: Ira Nadel article-Sept 18-Globe and Mail

Thank you for sharing this article with us. I think the matter-of-fact tone was used on purpose - are there any praise words about Leonard that haven't been uttered yet? Anyway, I liked it - there is always some little detail which comes up, adding to the picture each of us have about him...

True enough, I did not realize that he had answered to someone else. I do not doubt his good intentions - I was just shocked to read the words about the British in his post. I hadn't expected that - I am not British, so there is no bias here. I am Romanian and I live in a country of basically nice, ...

Hello everyone, It seems that in my absence quite a few things have happened. I see that Jarkko has managed to open new threads for Krakow – thank you, Jarkko, I shall also take the opportunity to ask some questions there – and the debate on death camps has turned to a heated discussion about human ...
