For me, I have a strange affinity for 80's don henley. I think my mother raised me under the umbrella of his salty voice. In the same vein as Cohen, I like Paul Simon, John Denver, Chantal Kreviazuk, and Sarah Harmer. But sometimes, I like to dance and the syn-tech of the Eurythmics and Delerium. St...

The increase of the quality of life may be a nice idea to contemplate but I don't think we can, in good faith, accept such a notion. For how is a human life, whether blessed with a high quality or low quality of living, relevant if each life will end the same way? With death. death. death. 'Life is ...

lizzytysh, Tacoma trailer outside? Come to think of it, i'd never ever thought of it in that way. For some reason, I find all of cohen's music to be fundamentally urban. even the ones where he talks about the country (like the desert in famous blue raincoat) I get a prevalent sense of city streets, ...

yet the expectation of lyrics (eventually realized to be an unfulfilled expectation) may be more 'sensual' than lyrics. I just can't help it, ever since I listened to the "Tacoma Trailer" at the end of the future album, it's been the subtlest, most absorbing, piece of Cohen music I've ever experienc...

Sandra: it's interesting to take on the perspective of "having, drawing out the goodness, and then waving goodbye" but to apply such a standard to life itself proves contentious. Because let's be honest, in the end we will all lose our lives. we will be dead and gone, gone and dead. Is there then a ...

meaning changes?

not to interrupt, but i'm not sure why we even have to ascribe meaning to life. on the global level, life is meaningless in the sense that there's no reason for me or you to be here. But we are. More interesting is that in the absence of meaning for our lives, what justifies our living? Why live? I'...
