Re: Important Announcement in August/September

I keep waiting, Jarkko .... We're so far away here in New Zealand, and i don't want to miss out on whatever the announcement is about :) !

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

I knew that we would probably never see him again when I watched the 'You Want it Darker' release celebration interview, from the Canadian Consulate in LA. Leonard had an ethereal sort of 'childlike' look, which I've often observed in family and friends with late-stage cancer. Like a little boy who ...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

So stunned. So sad, and so grateful to him for enriching my life beyond belief. Farewell, our friend.

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Treaty - definitely. It could apply to almost any relationship. I just love it. I hope that my neighbours like LC because he's been blasting out across our deck in Auckland, constantly, this early summer afternoon!

Re: Partisan in film

Apparently 'So Long Marianne' features in the new Disney film, Pete's Dragon, which - co-incidentally - was also filmed here in New Zealand!

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Welcome news and a Happy Birthday to Leonard. Hopefully there'll be another tour. I realise this is your first post but did you read the piece properly? There can't be another tour, LC at 82 with ailments that 82 year olds (and younger) get could not in any way sustain good health long enough for a...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Goldin, we just saw the Nick Cave doco too. So raw and visceral - and oddly, but effectively, oblique in terms of the loss and its circumstances.
It's a gift to have Skeleton Tree, plus a new LC, coming all at once and so glad that the latter should, (well, at least I hope) be much more cheerful!

Best LC ringtone!

I've come to realise that our beloved LC tends to have quite short intros to his songs. I had the original 1994 'Dance me to the end of love,' on my last phone but would like something new. Any suggestions?

Dr H Guy - 'And see what happens next.......'

Our good friend Allan Showalter is now guest editor at Leonard's official Facebook page, where he (Allan) invites us to post a comment; 'And come back to see what happens next'.

What could that be? Dare we hope??????

Re: New live album: Can't Forget

How funny, B4Real,

I just bought my physical copy today, :D at JB Hi-Fi in Auckland.

Great minds think alike!

Can't Forget

I'm just listening to the whole of 'Can't Forget' for the first time. OMG - I'm in love - even if it took my kids an hour to work out how to download it for me with my limited 'media' skills! 'Live in Dublin' was great, but having been in the first row for the very last show of the Grand Tour at Vec...

Re: New live album: Can't Forget

Fancy not requiting Leonard's love! It's hard to believe. Nico came to New Zealand and played at our Otago University orientation week in around 1984 or 85. It must have been very much around the time that I discovered Leonard's music, during the dying days of vinyl but then, without the Internet, I...

Re: New live album: Can't Forget

'Joan of Arc' is divine - it's always been my very favourite song and I smiled when Leonard got the words back-to front at the start. At least I think he did; it should be 'no moon to keep her armour bright and no man to get her through the dark and smoky night' -right? He sings 'man' first, then 'm...

It's fantastic thanks Allan.

It's clearly going to be a very big job for you to edit all the posts and we will be patient!
