Re: Merry Christmas to all Forum members!

Thanks Gwen. Yes, I know how to copy and paste :) . I've the pic stored in My Pictures but for some reason couldn't copy it. Anyway, you've done it for me :) Did you post your oil anywhere on the forum? I'd love to see it. I don't read all the posts so could have missed it. Yes, I'm sure it will be ...

Re: Merry Christmas to all Forum members!

Thanks for the advice everyone. Yes, I thought a frame and glass would not be appropriate, but how to protect it!!! I haven't decided where to hang it yet, want to put it somewhere that it can be seen but also want to protect it from dust, smoke etc :) Gwen, thanks so much for displaying it for ever...

Another try! It's up on the artist's Facebook page under Musicians. So hope this link works until I figure how to send properly

Re: Merry Christmas to all Forum members!

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas :) We got the most amazing Christmas present ever, from our beautiful daughter Marianne and her partner. It's a specially commissioned portrait of Leonard, done by a very talented portrait artist in Dublin. I tried to post a pic of it here, but couldn't. I'm obvi...

Re: Sligo-Help for newbies.

What I would like to have explained to me is why the two concerts I found most enjoyable were open-air concerts in the rain (Kilmainham and Sligo first night). Has anyone else felt the same? I rarely visit this thread now, but just found it again. JD, I agree with you. Don't know what it is about o...

Re: Bird On A Wire on BBC Four: Friday, 19th November 2010

Story of Isaac has always been a favourite of mine. Yes, it was pretty graphic, but there was nothing pretty about the Vietnam war. So many references to Leonard's "stoned ramblings" :roll: :roll: :roll: . How on earth do you know he was "stoned"?? Most of us looked like that in the 60s and 70s!! ;-...

Re: Bird On A Wire on BBC Four: Friday, 19th November 2010

I think out of those three Keith has aged best! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: But it's true, Anne, few have grown old that gracefully as Leonard Cohen did. (But I also think that he started early into growing old. If you know what I mean. :D ) And this grace has shaped his art very much in recent years. W...

Re: Bird On A Wire on BBC Four: Friday, 19th November 2010

Several young....er fans have asked how Leonard compares now with the young fellow of the late 60s/early 70s. I think to watch the two films back to back will explain why it's so difficult to answer. He's always been special. One of the many things that strikes me is that unlike other musicians of t...

Re: Bird On A Wire on BBC Four: Friday, 19th November 2010

I don't know whether this film made me feel really old or really young... the footage from the Manchester concert was from the very day I was born, and not very far from where I grew up. Part of me wishes I'd been around in that world... the rest of me is just so happy that 37 years later I still g...
