Re: TOWER OF SONG: MEMORIAL TRIBUTE TO LEONARD COHEN, MONTREAL

Looks like a great line up. A DVD would be fab for those who can't make the trip to Montreal.

Re: Handmade Leonard Cohen jewellery

Sorry! This is an old thread and I'm afraid I'm not making these any more. If you look on Etsy you'll find plenty of other people who are making lovely Cohen jewellery. Thanks for your interest.

Re: "You Want It Darker" merchandise

I was feeling sick as I had decided to wait until I got paid before getting a merch bundle and then we heard the terrible news, and of course everything had gone out of stock. But in case you were slow off the mark like I was, everything is available to preorder again and will be shipped 9th Decembe...

Re: Unified Heart as a symbol of grief and respect

Lovely idea, Amrei. I have been thinking of getting a tattoo of the hearts, like so many other Cohenites have, I think now I am ready to take the plunge. It is a hopeful symbol in these dark times...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

La vie est vaine,
Un peu d’amour,
Un peu de haine,
Et puis—Bonjour!

La vie est brève:
Un peu d’espoir,
Un peu de rève
Et puis—Bon soir!

Goodnight, dear Leonard. Thank you for everything.

Re: Title song 'You Want It Darker' now on YouTube and Spotify etc

Really enjoying this song. I am feeling the connection to this work much more strongly than to his recent albums. Can't wait to hear the rest, as I was not lucky enough to attend the event and get a sneak preview!

Re: HAPPY 82nd BIRTHDAY LEONARD!!

Hope that Leonard had a fantastic day. I celebrated my dear father's 80th just one week before Leonard's, surrounded by his friends of a similar age - the energy in the room was terrific! I wish Leonard as many creative years ahead of him as he wishes. Take care, Mr C.

Re: Sad news: Marianne Ihlen dies

I was really sad to see this. So soon after diagnosis, my thoughts are with her family. I must confess, I actually had to have a little cry in the toilets at work - not claiming any sense of personal loss, but it's terribly sad that someone who inspired such beautiful songs is no longer with us. But...

Re: Esther Cohen

Very sad to hear this. I never met Esther, but it was clear how proud she was of her brother. Condolences to the Cohen family.

Re: The PP album cover

Yep, I had assumed that the shadows were the same ones from Old Ideas. I like the idea of him striding forward from Old Ideas. Perhaps 'Popular Problems' reflects his career resurgence? He and his 'problems' are now (again) popular!

Re: Leonard 80 years: Fund Raising for our Hydra Bench

Thrilled to hear that the fundraising has been so successful. The bench will be magnificent and I hope to see it in person. I have to say, from reading Jarkko's post about the excess money, my preferred option, given the state of things today, would be to donate the extra to The Fund for Reconciliat...
