Re: Open Mic - Budapest 2018

Salutations Andrew

I'll do something ... but I can't remember what.
Hmm - there may be strings attached.

Re: T-shirt size chart

You've done really well there Eva, they are good genuine sizes. To reassure the bigger blokes - well fed, well watered coves like me! - the 4XL is a genuine 4XL, I measured a couple of American T-Shirts I have and if anything the sizes are slightly bigger, by a cm or two. It's always so frustrating ...

All the World's A Stage

Late last year, I stumbled across an amazing marionette of Leonard on a Facebook Forum, it had been commissioned for a buyer in the US. I was so intrigued by both the artist's ability and the possibilities, I resolved to make contact with the marionette maker and did so in late January (a few weeks ...

Re: Hydra 2017 list updated & unconfirmed names removed

Apologies to our fellow Cohenistas - a couple of health issues have unfortunately meant we've sadly got no option but to cancel our trip this year - long distance flying is out for me at the moment, but we look forward to seeing everyone in Budapest next year. Have a wonderful time on glorious Hydra.

Re: the beauty of our weapons

I have a different view - I always felt that Leonard had a deep interest in the military and battle, which is not to say he was a raging pro-gun enthusiast, rather he understood the primeval instinct / human condition to fight / protect / raid. As with most Jewish, Christian and Islamic texts, battl...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

I was honoured to be asked to write thoughts on Leonard's passing and his 50 year influence on my life for the on-line magazine Spirit Fanzine. It's in German, however there is an English translation link at the bottom of the page: http://www.spirit-ein-laecheln-im-sturm.de/heroes/pdf/Leonard_Cohen_...

Re: Chopper sings harmony with Lenny

A bit of fun at a very sad time - We're in our courtyard listening to Leonard, when Chopper, the Motorbike Frog living in the fountain sings harmony ... beautifully! https://twitter.com/GregWRoss/status/80 ... 24/video/1

Re: Sharon Robinson

Thankfully we know Perla and Julie are OK, albeit distraught, but I worry that there appears to have been no statement from Sharon Robinson. Where ever she may be, I would just like send her a hug. In so many ways, she and Perla are, in a musical sense, together with Adam, the keepers of the flame.

Re: Bench updates

As much as I like the Hydra bench idea, I really think the various Greek governments are simply not capable of running anything, even overseeing a park bench. It's very sad to see a civilisation in such decline, especially the cradle of our democracy, but I think it would be easier to just walk away...

Re: the event after Budapest should be in Montreal

Ah Budapest! I have my heart set on Budapest in 2018. I'm very glad nothing is to change, Eva is such a lovely person and will I am certain, put on a fabulous event, besides, I'm dragging Ann along to Transylvania and Dracula's Castle afterwards! Montreal in 2020, as a twenty year celebration is PER...

1974 Animated Interview with Leonard on The Sisters of Mercy

I found this fabulous animation interview through Rolling Stone magazine's Twitter feed today and although it dates back to 1974, I think it's fantastic. If you haven't seen it before, it's a great way to celebrate Leonard's genius. http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/watch-leonard-cohen-read-sur...
