"Weird Al" Yankovic was #1!

Until I found out about "Popular Problems," this was the most exciting music news for me so far this year: my "close personal friend" (hey, I'm on his mailing list) "Weird Al" Yankovic released his latest (and probably last) studio album "Mandatory Fun," on July 15, and it debuted at #1 on the Billb...

Re: John Bilezikjian in Long Beach last Mon

I was privileged to hear John Bilezikjian play last Friday night, in Fontana, CA, for a showcase of belly dancing. He played for about an hour, alternating between playing for dancers (including my friend Marguerite, above) and playing and singing without dancers. His wife accompanied him on some of...

Paul Simon and Sting

I saw them last night at the Forum. Wonderful. They put together a band from both of their touring bands (Sting joked that they had more people onstage than the LA Phil) and it was splendid. It was well-apportioned among duets and solo sets by each man (a couple of sets each). Their voices blended w...

Re: How did you survive Leonard?

Why I think Leonard broke faith? Well as the ten commandments contain: I will not redeem those who swear to my name in vain. I mentioned the song Hallelujah where the text is like: You said I took the name in vain, I dont even know the name. Thats why. .... ...Id be really grateful if I had a mento...

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

Horrible Monday. Finding sanctuary in Leonard Cohen, candlelight and the lovely bottle of Chat-en-Oeuf that Tom gave me for my birthday. --Pretty similar to regular marshmallows, let sugar syrup get to soft ball stage and then beat the heck out of it:[picture] --That is one sleek yet goth bit of ki...

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

I bet after the 17th time he rhymed "halleluja" with "you," Leonard Cohen started to regret his life choices. Leonard Cohen always inspires me to cook! #SlowAndEasyBeef Is it even possible to play Leonard Cohen "too loud?" My 66-year-old aunt is posting Leonard Cohen videos to Facebook. In other ne...

Re: Simon and Garfunkel (Central Park, 1981)

Oh, thats great! Where? Los Angeles, Feb. 15. I've never seen Sting live, but I've seen Paul Simon maybe 8 or 9 times solo (I'm counting his tours with Brian Wilson and Bob Dylan as solo, because they were really more packaging of two stars together than collaborations) and once with Garfunkel. He'...

I don't know about music today, but I'm expecting music ten days from now to sound a lot like that... I'm going to see Sting and Paul Simon in concert together!

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

Every couple of months, I go on a Leonard Cohen listening spree which inevitably reaffirms why he is my favorite musician ever. --Three types of love: eros love is 'physical' philos love is 'mental' and agape love is 'spiritual.' Blessed are those in whom all 3 reside. -- Where does the love for Mi...

Re: Lucca festival, Dylan??

Even Bob Dylan can't make me forget the time I rented a brand-new Chrysler LeBaron and had this conversation with the girl at the rental agency counter when I turned it in:
"Any problems?"
"No."
"Good! Most of these come back broken."

Re: Lucca festival, Dylan??

I think it's part of Dylan's ongoing effort to get himself loose from that "voice of a generation" role by periodically leaving that generation speechless. The effect of the Christmas album has pretty much worn off, so maybe he figured the car ad will do the job for a while. Seriously, this is the g...

Leonard Cohen on Twitter: the Superbowl Edition. ¿A qué demonio de cruce de caminos le vendo mi alma para tener la voz de Leonard Cohen?

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

Staying home tonight ... Just me, Tom waits and Leonard Cohen. Leonard Cohen siempre sabe qué decir. Por eso ya no lo escucho. Leonard Cohen always knows what to say. That's why I don't listen to him any more. Not a day goes by without me wondering... Does Leonard Cohen do a decent Yorkshire accent...
