Re: Pronunciation of the word 'intimate' in 'Nevermind'?

As for camouflage, could that be the Canadian pronunciation? I'm almost sure I remember an old interview with another famous Canadian in which the pronunciation of this word was discussed and in which the Canadian pronounced it exactly as Leonard does on this album. (Was it Shatner??? Anyone else r...

Re: LC Week on CBC - press release

Just before playing Almost Like the Blues this morning the host said "it's Leonard Cohen week on CBC Radio 2, so put up your Leonard Cohen tree and hang up your Leonard Cohen stocking". Now there's a thought!

Ottawa: 80th birthday celebration

This link is already posted in the Local Celebrations thread but I thought a lot of Ottawa members might not have noticed it. The event is organised by the University of Ottawa. There will be readings by Ottawa poets of Cohen’s poetry in different languages. The Ottawa group “Tower of Song” led by J...

Re: Esther Cohen

I am so sad to hear this news. I had the privilege of meeting Esther twice. She was so full of life and friendly to everyone she met. My thoughts are with Leonard and other family and friends at this difficult time.

Re: How to celebrate Leonard's 80th birthday

I'm not sure whether Leonard, being the humble man that he is, would like any sort of plaque near his home. Of course, I could be completely wrong about that! When Leonard accepted the Glenn Gould Prize two years ago he donated the prize money to the Canada Council for the Arts. He said: The truth i...

Re: LC participates in Paul Simon tribute album

According to the CD liner notes it is Maxime St-Pierre. Thanks for reminding me that I have this CD, I haven't played it for a while!
