Best,

Re: Calling Fellow Canadians - CBC listeners

What an honour indeed! I'm ashamed to say that although I live in Ottawa, only a short walking distance from the Parliament Hill and the Peace Tower, I wasn't there. Thank you for the link, I loved listening to it. No, not the finest cover ever, but haunting and beautiful just the same. And quite an...

Yes, I agree. It is time to come home. Montreal. Let the world come to Montreal.

Re: You May Be A Leonard Cohen Fan If …

You just invited all your friends to join the "Leonard Cohen for Governor General" page on Facebook. Your four-year old daughter wants to have a Leonard Cohen birthday party and describes LC as sounding like "an old turtle. But beautiful, kind of like a prince." My now five-year old daughter recentl...

Re: Leonard Cohen for Governor General (Macleans.ca 4/11/10)

He is far too wise to accept the nomination, and our PM (sadly) is not the Leonard Cohen type. Still, I'll be voting for LC for GG on Facebook! I live about a block from the GG's residence, how wonderful would it be to have LC as my neighbour??

Re: Cohen on the Grammys

That was awful. Literally no more than 20 seconds. Jian is right to be upset.

Re: What's your 2010 Concert dream scenario?

My dream (literally, as I have actually dreamed this), is that he winds up the tour with a string of dates in Montreal, I attend the very last one. After the last standing ovation and the lights come one, we just keep applauding, singing and refuse to leave ... until he comes back again and recites ...

Re: Leonard & "Silent Night"

Thank you Jarkko, that is wonderful. Merry Christmas to all forum members, I hope to see many of you in 2010, if not in Moscow, then back in Canada when he returns home (as I surely hope he will).

Re: The Tour 2010 Dates (ALL for Europe)

South America, Korea, South Africa, wow, a real world tour indeed. All tempting places ... . Wendy - I completely understand your feelings about Petersburg. My first university trip was to Moscow in the summer of 1990 (still the Soviet Union then, but barely). I spent almost 3 months in Moscow. I we...

Re: The Tour 2010 Dates (ALL for Europe)

Wonderful description of Russia of Diana. I certainly encourage anyway thinking of making this concert to spend a few days, get to Petersburg at least. Moscow is complex and huge and not beautiful, but terribly interesting. And the Moscow of today is nothing like Soviet Moscow, at least not the cent...

Montreal, montreal. He needs to finish up in Montreal.

Or Ottawa, but I'll settle for Montreal.

Re: The Tour 2010 Dates (ALL for Europe)

I lived in Moscow & St. Petersburg in the crazy early 1990s, my university years. That was when I discovered Leonard, and what a perfect place and time in history to discover him. I haven't been back to Moscow since 1996 (although I was in Petersburg in 2003). I have to go, simply have to. I'm so ex...
