Hey Timster.. I was just acknowledging that it was Bonnie Prince Billy singing the song Henning posted - making sort of an absent minded comment to myself, I guess, while thinking that I really liked hearing it, and should buy the album. My own album of the year is still Tom Waits - Orphans. Or mayb...

Sheeeesh... and I was wondering why I've been so chilly this evening, needing a blanky round my shoulders all the while I've been sitting here... :--) ... maybe what I really should be having is a bit of single malt Scotch... Good going, Pete! Thanks for entertaining us so well, as always! Hugs, Bob...

Yup, it was mentioned, all 20 seconds of it.. but the commentator made mention of "the great Leonard Cohen". Why can't I remember that commentator's name right now..... ? ... I see him nearly every week on that show! Sheeeesh....

"Some people always mix up Kris Kristofferson and Leonard Cohen. "

Heheh.. yeah. But we know that Kris ain't no Leonard. (as much as I like Kris, too.)

That'll be nice as long as they don't bump it... we're still waiting for the piece on Leonard that they bumped several months ago. Meanwhile, they featured the very same Kris Kristofferson piece twice.

Ahhh, yes... Stephen ColBARE. Very fine.

Now.. exactly in what capacity does your perception of hope for me lie, Mr. Williamson? I would like you to call me some evening so we can discuss this matter.

Dear Marie and James... Fabulous! Congratulations - I'm so very pleased for you! North Carolina borders Virginia, and mapquest says you are about 6-ish hours or so away. In a country this size, 6 hours is just a quickie - so why don't we talk about having a visit at some point. After all, we haven't...

Dean Martin Festival

I saw this piece on CBS Sunday Morning this past weekend (the same show that's supposed to be doing a story on Leonard "sometime") - and all these people coming from all over the world to honor Dean Martin in his home town every year, sitting around, singing songs, drinking and having fun... reminde...
