So Long Marianne in translation

Hi all, Norwegian radio journalist Kari Hesthamar wrote a book in 2008 called So Long Marianne which tells the story of Marianne Ihlen and her relationship with Leonard Cohen in Hydra, and elsewhere, in the 1960s. This book has not yet been translated into English but the ‘rights’ are still availabl...

Re: Lissadell House Concert 31st July Vine - FOR IRELAND

I can be cut from the vine, gently please. Thanks to JudasPriest and An Post the disks have just arrived with me. I will copy them over the weekend and post them on–where next though?

Re: Lissadell House Concert 31st July Vine - FOR IRELAND

Recently back from the holliers, so only just discovered this thread. I would like to be added to the list, not sure how it works, but should be up to speed by the time anything reaches me.

Re: LISBOA PORTUGAL (Sept 10) ON SALE NOW

I bought 6 VIP tickets front row seats for Lisbon (my wife and I and 4 friends). Unfortunately due to circumstances we will be unable to attend. I paid an insurance sum when buying the tickets to cover this eventuality however the booking company are very hard to contact and do not reply to my email...

Re: PRESALE TO LISBOA PORTUGAL NOW

Quite possibly will not actually swing all the permutations to allow me to go (will probably be in France at the time) but a certain madness took hold and I have booked VIP row tickets for Lisbon anyway!!!

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Zagreb, Croatia, July 25, 2010

That is an interesting reading of the performance. I am not sure I would agree with the level of cynicism which I feel you are attributing to the lyric but there is no doubt that it is a carefully rehearsed and polished show. I would agree that deification is no good for anyone and a bit of critical...

Re: Leonard to play in Sligo!!

happy birthday alan (real or imagined) where ever you may celebrate it. You could do some flash mobbing to gather a crowd. I can hardly see the road outside our house but leaving from a fog bound West Cork in half and hour with four new tyres on the car, so I will at least grip the road even if I c...

Re: From the tour management: no visitors!

Yes, they were the latter-day sisters of mercy (but Leonard was too nimble for them). I am sure if there was a story you will find it. If you do not, I will make it up for you. All life is a marketing opportunity now. Read my vacuous life on FB, where I message my partner for the world to read with ...

Re: Sligo-Help for newbies.

As someone else once said in a slightly different context, I haven’t gone away you know. Only one great unanswerable question now remains: will the Limerick tunnel be open by this day week? Only eight more sleeps to go (well discounting nodding off on the sofa, none of us are any younger now). I hop...

No, not much point at all, so why bother? And, as the as the anti-war slogan went, 'not in my name'.
Remove all the previous Sligo threads, and start one new one.... I'm serious...
I second that emotion.

Re: Leonard to play in Sligo!!

Reading all the Sligo threads on this site has made me think about the obsessive behaviour and wonder whether LC fans (myself included in this introspection) are a bit mental or missing something in life.
