Re: Buffy Sainte-Marie

...It's very important to remember that she was accepted by the indigenous community. I suppose that it is also very important to remember that, from the beginning of Buffy's career, she told everyone that she was Indigenous -- complete with a personal history that was entirely fabricated -- and th...

Re: never-ending gallery

my goodness, that is more than amazing! lino cutting is something i have yet to try, so i looked at one or two youtube videos to see exactly how it's done. the ones i saw were just black and white, but your finished product has brilliant colours! i note the varying shades, like on the five sprigs(?...

...card illustration... Love the little happy faces on the flowers -- very cute and cheerful! -- I hope it made someone's day! To celebrate the Spring weather we've been having (10 degrees celcius, almost unheard of for February in these parts), I made this mixed-media picture: a linocut print (I'v...

Re: The 10 most underrated Leonard Cohen songs

...p.s. Don't you just love the way all journalists generalise? ;-) Ha-ha! Of course, to avoid making unjustified generalisations (mind you, one could argue that most generalisations are unjustified), a person merely has to say, "many, most, some, a lot, quite a few", or even better, &quo...

Re: The 10 most underrated Leonard Cohen songs

Underrated by whom? :roll: Regardless, I think that "underrated" is a poor choice of word for this article's title, for it implies that people know of the thing in question and do not rate it highly. However, the author of this condescending piece of drivel provides no evidence to support ...

Re: never-ending gallery

absolutely fantastic, both your picture and the interesting article. i am not sure if this is three different poses of the same chickadee or if it portrays three different chickadees. the one on the right is recognisable as the little fellow that perched on your finger, but they all look so lovely,...

...stay well, dear friends. you don't emerge from the shadows very often... I am staying well, thank you! I haven't posted any home-made pictures for a while, and so I have emerged from the shadows to do so. Yesterday, I was thinking about the little chickadee friends I met last year, who so bravel...

Re: never-ending gallery

...you may have heard that [Bowie] was hit in his left eye with a lollipop while performing. it went straight into his eye... Ouch, that looks painful! What are the chances of that happening? Glad he was not injured, and that the crowd enjoyed many more songs! Thank you for the good wishes: it is c...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Hey, 4, I do recall your mentioning on the forum that you'd been to that December 2010 concert in Las Vegas, but I do not recall having met you, although there were so many forum members there, it may well have happened! I do remember most of the people whom I ended up hanging out with quite a bit, ...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Famous Blue Raincoat is one of my favourite songs, too, and like Alan, I love many different versions of it, although I much prefer the live versions that end with the original "Sincerely, L. Cohen" lyric, rather than "Sincerely, a friend". I once listened to that song at four in...

Re: Far Out magazine article on Leonard’s lyrics

That was a good article, one of the better one's I've ever read about Leonard and his work: a nice assortment of lyrics, discussed intelligently and respectfully. Thanks for posting!

Re: never-ending gallery

Regarding David Bowie's eyes, despite the fact that they did, in some photographs and images, appear to be two different colours (which is a condition called heterochromia), that is not the case. Both of Bowie's eyes were the same colour of blue, but one of his eyes had a permanently enlarged pupil ...

Re: A feast of Leonard

For some reason, Ireland’s national broadcaster is featuring Leonard Cohen big time at the moment. Click on to RTÉ.ie/culture and look up the articles. The concert orchestra did a show which will be broadcast on the 25th at 21.35 GMT. Check it out. I don't understand why they're doing this? You don...

Re: never-ending gallery

Lisa, your thermometer must be broken. Hold a lighter underneath it for a while, that should fix it... I wish! (Are you being serious? I can't tell.). No, it really was -38 that day (in the middle of the city) -- it was even colder in the outlying areas, -46, apparently. I do live near the North Po...

Re: never-ending gallery

...oh no, what's going to happen with those beautiful little chickadees who sing their sweet little songs - poor things!... Happily, chickadees are far more reslient than humans, and are able to survive outside even in -40 temperatures. Luckily for them, it snowed just before this cold-snap (before...
