leonard's looking a little green around the gills. Maybe the tour is finally taking it's toll on him.

Get well soon Leonard! :razz:

That seems to be the result of an unhealthy and disowned fanatism combined with too much time...

Nonetheless, I can't deny grinning slightly. :roll:

Funny. Far too long, but funny.

What cafeteria are you located in Actually? I have a sudden urge for a coffee and a bun :razz:

Interesting film clip Actually ( your name fits a sentence so well )
I'm slightly disturbed though , seeing my idol in his underpants drawing triangles on a window
kind of got to me , I sat there like a rabbit in a headlight , then it came to me , he wasn't
drawing anything . He was pointing at you in the cafeteria , wondering what you were doing

Well, I guess that's the main difference between my name and me - my name fits almost everything.
By the way, there are quite a few interesting videos on youtube, but I won't post the other ones... 8)

Thank you, Actually, for that link - I had seen the clip of the college performance before, but not the rest. I just love the po-faced commentator declaring gravely "He is not primarily a stand-up comic". And from 3:04 onwards in Part 2, we have glimpses of his famous blue raincoat, not yet torn at the shoulder... Nice.

I especially like the clips of child Leonard ski-ing and skating: he was pretty accomplished.

Good to see that you are actually in the cafeteria, Actually. Leonard never made it. Few of us do.

Can we have the old avatar back? You were looking over your shoulder enigmatically, as if someone had just entered the room but you were still unsure if friend or foe...

You're welcome. To be honest, I thought those clips on youtube were already old hat. Obviously they're not.

Oh well, sometimes we think we are... you know?

Ahhh, that cafeteria! Been a while since I've watched Ladies and Gentlemen...

Have it on DVD, so a bottle of red and a night in front of the telly with Mr. Leonard Cohen is definitely on the cards soon.

Thanks for the reminder A.
