The PP album cover

I need to discuss... :lol: The colors are the basic printer ink colors - magenta, cyan and yellow. Very negative association for me (oh the horror and expense of printer ink!)

Re: How to celebrate Leonard's 80th birthday

I would like to see the google doodler acknowledge this milestone birthday. I don't know how to lobby him/her, or if its even possible. Would be nice though...

Re: How to celebrate Leonard's 80th birthday

As far as anyone else, I'm thinking about what I personally would like and be able to participate in. Perhaps, I'm not alone and together we'll do something interesting and pleasant.

Re: The birds they Tweeted at break of day...

when Leonard Cohen dies i'm going down with him I'm sure this particular tweet was meant to be glib. But it wouldn't surprise me if, sadly, this kind of thing actually occurs when Leonard passes.
