Re: Who will appear in the tribute concert?

I heard about this yesterday. I was quite shocked at some of the omissions ..... Wendy Why? They are professional musicians. They need to make a living. That's what they were doing when they supported LC and did it so well! Perhaps they are not as affluent or as free as others who can jet off to Mo...

Today it's his yarhzeit, first year of his passing according to jewish tradition, who is ruled by the moon and not the sun. Today is the day.

Re: Leonard's tombstone

One thing keeps hitting me in my (artist’s) eye though is the different angles of perspective between the headstone in the background and that of the stone in the foreground. I would have thought both would have parallel perspective sight lines. Yes Mary, I noticed this too. But then, as we know, t...

Re: 'The times they are a-changing...' Montreal concert

Something I'd say we can all agree on is that this forum is a great idea. Thanks to Jarkko. Perhaps some need to be reminded that a forum is a place of discussion, a place where people can air differing opinions. If everyone here "sang from the same hymn sheet" it would be so tedious, and I for one ...

Good to hear from you Tularosa, thanks for your support!
Yes, I too look forward to "the Flame."
A whole year away, but should be good. :)

Re: 'The times they are a-changing...' Montreal concert

Most of those who are not going to Montreal have probably tuned out of the forum by now. The big build up to the "important announcement" began in July. Over the months of "patience" many posted their hopes, modest ones really : an unpublished work by Leonard, a new recording, some said they didn't...

Re: 'The times they are a-changing...' Montreal concert

with Tickets start at 40 Canadian Dollars (27Euro) its almost a free show. if you really wanted to go ... Hard to complain with that. Don't think many of the forum members would be buying those (not quite free tickets) do you?! You would be very far back, to put it mildly. Don't begrudge those who ...

Re: MONTREAL: More information for the members

Thank you Marie for this Cohen site map. I find it so interesting to see all these familiar places on the map and the pop-ups work fine. I hope others like me who will not be in Montreal in November find your map here - who knows, we might get there some time! Much appreciated.

Re: September 21 - Leonard's birthday

how will they (the dead) manage to read Facebook? " Anytime I am missing Leonard, I have albums, CD s and Dvd s to play and watch to remember him by. Well said, Vicomte and Geoffrey. One of the things I admired about Leonard Cohen was that he was never afraid to face up to reality, however unpleasa...

My personal reaction to any anniversary of loss is quiet remembrance, but I respect that others feel differently.

Yes Mordy, my feelings too. There was a certain dignity about the (comparative) media silence since the death of Leonard Cohen. Suppose it couldn't last!

Re: 'The times they are a-changing...' Montreal concert

Personally I am more interested in sharing what is bound to be an emotional event with friends than who is performing on stage Wendy You don't care who is performing on stage? So you might as well have a meet up with the old pals in the local pub - much less expensive!! (ps - enjoyable as were the ...
