Re: Turtles all the Way Down - Sturgill Simpson

Hello Kush,

I have been meaning to reply to this post of yours for a while and I have finally got round to doing so. I had never heard of Sturgill Simpson before but I really enjoyed his songs. The live clip was exceptional. Thanks for bringing him to notice.

Re: Madonna Performs 'Haleluya' At Met Gala 2018

Bon soir, Monsieur Viscount. Il me semble that vous êtes le language police ici. I hope vous avez un nice, smart uniforme and a grand dictionnaire anglais avec tous les phrases and mots francais deleted en rouge. Pas de 'cliché', 'double entendre' or 'boutique' pour vous. It may be something of a 'f...

Nice to see a balanced response, Vicomte, or would you rather be addressed as 'Viscount' in future as you now seem to prefer prefer English?

Re: Leonard Cohen, philosopher - lecture by Philipp Rosemann

Thank you for posting this link, Rita.

Pain, suffering, guilt, sin, love and religion. I hope Professor Rosemann continues to offer his perceptive insights into Mr.Cohen's words and how they have touched our sensitivities.

'Amelia's Railroad Flat'

One of Tom Russell's lesser known songs - but very evocative. We all have our own Amelia in our memory.

Re: 'Angel of Lyon' Tom Russell

Hello Kush and Diane, I went to see Tom Russell last night. As on previous occasions it was an enjoyable evening with about 150-200 people in attendance. It was the last show of his current tour and his engagement with the audience is infectious. Max De Bernardi was amazing with his guitar playing. ...

Re: Party Songs - Leonard Cohen?

Perhaps you might wish to consider 'Queen Victoria' as a way to get everyone onto the dance floor if things need livening up even more.

Re: 'Angel of Lyon' Tom Russell

I have yet to see the show, Diane. I am seeing his last one here at Farncombe on Saturday. I am glad you had a good time. I cannot understand why he is so underrated in the UK. There will probably be the same number of people watching him this weekend as when you saw him. Such a shame but the atmosp...

Hello Diane,

I am sure you will enjoy the evening. He also has a brilliant guitarist, Max De Bernardi, accompanying him. I am going to his last show on the tour.

Re: September 21 - Leonard's birthday

Thanks to the human heart by which we live,
Thanks to its tenderness, it's joys and fears,
To me the meanest flower that blows can give
Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears.

Wordsworth.

In remembrance.
