Re: never-ending psychology

No one is more dangerously insane than one who is sane all the time: he is like a steel bridge without flexibility, and the order of his life is rigid and brittle. Ha! After ten years here posting thoughts and opinions on music, a subject in which I have no background or training, here is something...

Re: never-ending gallery

Re "Tough Times."

I rate this attempt five stars, well done, I read it multiple times. At first I couldn't discern the meter, but then I saw it in the last verse.

Re: I rarely write no more, me

Solongleonard,

Not that it particularly matters, but I am curious as to why in your 10/10 post you artificially doctored something I posted on 6/15 to imply that I wrote your words? I often appreciate your humor, but not to the point I necessarily want it attributed to me.

Affectionately,

Re: On this day in 1934: Leonard Cohen was born

Martin, Marie-Elaine & Maarten,

What an exquisite tribute to Leonard. These arrangements and recordings must have involved a lot of work, rest assured that the results made all that time well-spent. Thank you so much for thinking of Leonard and his fans.

Re: Reaction videos

Thanks for posting these reaction videos, I enjoyed watching them and seeing the reactions of people who never heard the songs before. The discussion of "The Future" was long, but particularly entertaining, often delving into the idea of how prophetic the lyrics proved to be. The "Hallelujah" video ...

Re: 25 Years of The Leonard Cohen Files

Dear Jarkko, Eija, and all the "elves,"

An apt expression of thanks may be to repeat what Winston Churchill had to say about the RAF fifty-five years and 14 days before the day you launched The Leonard Cohen Files:

"Never has so much been owed by so many to so few."

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

OK, I came up with two memorial service songs, which one will depend on how I am feeling at the time. Stories of the Street - This is just such an interesting song, and I love the music. It makes you think about so many aspects of life and the world, each listener creating his own mental images. The...

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

.... And maybe you would like to answer your own question about which song you would choose and why ;-) [/quote] I'm thinking about it! it was a much easier question to ask than to answer. I hadn't considered the idea that choosing a song to be played at my memorial service would be ego-driven, alt...

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

I had pretty much given up looking to see if there were any new posts here, you guys surprised me. I too liked Jean's quote about the worst enemy of truth. I never heard it before and am guessing it is his own, thanks Jean. Hallelujah always struck me as an all-encompassing tribute to love--past and...

Re: New live unauthorised CD

I purchased the unauthorized Reykjavik concert CD, but haven't really gotten around to listening to it until recently. Today I just gave the first half of the concert a good, uninterrupted listen. I was quite fascinated, and this from someone who has listened to many concert CDs, released and otherw...

Was drawn here by seeing the recent activity, and clicked on the link in Goldin's June 5 post and read the Slate article. I wish now that I hadn't.

Re: Montreal Leonard Cohen Memorial Commemorative Box Set

In my opinion some people are not looking at this boxed set in the correct manner. I have some familiarity with non-profit charitable organizations. When they conduct fundraising programs, the majority of each donation is for, and goes to, the charity. For example, our local art museum has annual di...

Re: Montreal Leonard Cohen Memorial Commemorative Box Set

The Montreal event was a moving experience for those able to attend, if this boxed set imparts even a little of that experience to those unable to attend it will be worth the price, which is going to a good cause in any case.

Re: NOW THE COUNTDOWN: Waiting For The News To Come

Dear Jarkko,

Are you not aware that Finland is a signator of the United Nations Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhumane or Degrading Treatment or Punishment?
