Re: Leonard Cohen 'vs' Bob Dylan

Well, the semi-absurdity of weighing art is conveyed here by putting the versus in quotes... However, I imagine that most people, were it a matter of life or death, would choose one artist over another. So I reckon there is some validity in such comparisons, especially when fleshing out the valuable...

~ I've been a member of this forum for more than a decade, but until now haven't mentioned that I also happen to be a writer (of prose, philosophy, poetry, and occasional humor) From the proverbial vault, here is one of my favorite poems I've written, which if I were pressed to describe, is about a ...

Re: "Elaboration of a tube" line in "Going Home"?

I haven't read all the responses here, so not sure if someone has said the following. It seems like most of the responders are overthinking the simple poetic sensibility of these lyrics.

Re: Buying tickets to NYC is impossible. Buy from scalpers.

I don't know... maybe I've just been lucky. But-- I've been able to get tickets pretty quickly through the Forum presale each time I tried. First, I got seats to the CT show at the least expensive price range-- b/c the friend I'm going with is a broke musician (!). Got in right away, no problems wit...

Re: Toronto Tickets - did you get them?

Well, I got in very quickly and got two seats for Friday ORCH13 O 4 - 3 Only problem: my friend and I were planning to get tickets for Saturday. In my overzealousness I accidentally clicked on Friday and didn't notice! My friend's panicked about asking for an extra day off his summer job (we'd need ...
