Boring ol' me

Post by David » Fri Apr 04, 2003 1:29 am

I'm "David" because that's my name.

Why do I suddenly feel utterly boring?

Because you're not, and had to experience that feeling at some point in your life :lol: ?

I chose Moonlight because I thinks it is so evocative of Leonard Cohen's music. At least to me it is.

An interesting choice of reason for a nom-de-plume (sp?) you choose two opposites (ie Monn & Light) which I also find evocative of LC (Love & Hate)

I chose "halfCrazy" because I am! :wink:
But this wasn't the only reason -
Leonard captivated me with "Suzanne", the first song of his I ever heard, and I loved it at first listening - of course, I felt addressed immediately, as my name is Susanne.

If you've read de Vassal's Leonard Cohen bio, I'm sure you know why I call myself September?

I think it's one of the most beautiful Cohen's answer to an interviewer.
One for the money
Two for the show
Three to get ready
Go man go
I said tell me Mr. Siegal
How do I get out of here

Lizzytysh has already guessed why I chose the name Byron. I enjoy playing with words which have a duality and this name's playmate sums up my approach to the world we find ourselves in.
But that only comes with great age, much experience and a wealth of mistakes. :?
