Re: Popular Problems - Second Impressions

Amen. I'll sign on to that, as I wrote in another tread I thought it was "crap" the first time i heard it. It certainly grows on me. A lot better now. Still no classic, but fits in among the mediocre Cohen albums, witch means it has high quality compared to most other music. It's still not on my top...

Re: "Popular Problems" - the next LC album (late September 2

After first hearing I think it's crap, hehe. Gonna give the album a few hundred more hearings, might as well be great. But my first impression : crap. On a LC-scale of course, that means it is great compared to everything else, but no good against the best of LC. Not sure why, I just don't like the ...

Re: How to celebrate Leonard's 80th birthday

This is exciting, it looks great, looking forward to see the bench IRL when I some day visit Hydra. I think the final plans should be made when we know excactly the amount of money collected will be. If it's enough to fix the stairs, then fix the stairs. If not, use what we got on the bench. Get the...
