Re: never-ending galley

...the aubergine (a far nicer word than 'eggplant') ... Quite agree -- although in Canada, it is sadly known as an "eggplant". This odd-looking fruit has been (and still is) known by many names, including the rather charming "mad apple". For those with a taste for etymology (and/or the aubergine an...

Re: Review of Jewish Museum Show A Crack in Everything

Perhaps, for those people who don't "get" this exhibition, it might be useful to remind them of the original intent of the MAC exhibition, in order to clarify what it is and what it is not. Here is a description from one of the first news releases on the project: " A life's work revisited through co...

Re: "A new album of original Leonard Cohen songs is in the works"

I would be very interested in hearing this "new" album, and I am not at all concerned that it would, in any way, displace You Want It Darker as Leonard's "final" work, because, nothing will ever change that fact (and it is a "fact") -- YWID is simply Leonard's last album, period, and that is not deb...

Re: Review of Jewish Museum Show A Crack in Everything

I got this far in that review: "It’s true, his deep voice and monotonous melodies can begin to grate. But when you tire of Cohen’s music, there is still the idea of him ... to fall back on. " Seriously? Anybody who thinks that about Leonard Cohen is not someone who's opinion matters to me. Leonard's...

...well, i don't know about you, but i was brought up in a strictly religious background, where alcohol was seen as a devilish concoction that caused even the strong-minded to easily lose control - and who can argue with that! ...

...well, you know . . . we evolve . . . That we do, some more than others, I think -- by choice, disposition, and/or circumstance.

Re: never-ending gallery

I have noticed a distinct similarity between works by the artist known as "Geoffrey" and works by another artist, who has apparently not been active for a while, named "WREN". They are both very talented, and they both seem to have a fascination (and skill) with Leonard Cohen portraits. I find mysel...

Re: Leonard Cohen on Google Street View

I actually find this to be a bit unsettling and sad. It is like looking through a portal to the past, and witnessing a happy moment in time that we know no longer exists. It is almost like seeing a ghost.

Re: never-ending foolery

I find it difficult, Solong, to select the worst parts of our marriage but your obsessive behaviour with trousers and boots deserves at least a mention. Perhaps you are being unreasonably critical. I should think that it is preferable that Solong prefers trousers and boots/shoes, rather than runnin...

Re: never-ending gallery

As exemplified in my previous post, not only are capital letters disappearing, but so are words. Why bother trying to learn and remember all those combinations of letters (let alone having complex thoughts), when a little cartoon picture can express everything one could possibly want to say in any g...
