Last week Old Ideas was #1. But this week we have another surprise - #5 on the list - "More Best Of" jumped out of nowhere. Quite interesting.

Re: Eye of the Camp

The Eye is also a term used to refer to the center of a Black Hole, the gravity of which is so dense that nothing that enters into it can escape (not even light), except through Quantuum Tunneling - a phenomenon which exists because of wave-particle duality (here we are again, in the realm of Quant...

Re: February Update

We have also made arrangements for the Music Professor who is the University, "Carilloneur" to play some Leonard Cohen songs on the historic Carillon Bell tower that is one of the campus landmarks. It is most likely the first time that Leonard's music will have been performed on a Carillon. WOW! Th...

Re: The Muse of Laboratory lithograph as giveaway with CD!

Haven't been on the Forum for a couple of days and just seen this thread. Don't know whether it would be possible to smile to you, Kelsey. Well, you know... I am a chemist, so you could imagine that for me this litho means much. Alas - I am very far away - in Poland. Do you think it's possible to pu...

Re: Wisława Szymborska

This sad news struck us yesterday evening. She wasn't young, of course... but here we consider her immortal. She was (and will be) always with us. She wrote just over 350 poems, but many of them are really very deep. Personally I think her poems resembled LC's work to some extent. One of the most fa...

Exactly, holydove! Both life and poetry are usually a series of unexpected riddles. That's why it's so fascinating.

Re: The WORD mag. - Old Ideas Review + Cover Feature

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this last album thesis blown out of the water? The next album is already in the can? Ten New Songs was already heralded as his last album. And Dear Heather as the final album. So this is the third album in Leonard's trilogy of final albums, apparently. After this ...

Re: "elaboration of a tube" - any interpretation suggestions

He will speak these words of wisdom Like a sage, a man of vision Wouldn't that refer to a song or tune? Right, jerry, but... don't you think this would be too obvious? In my opinion Leonard loves to include unexpected words and/or lines. And this is one of those cases. Fans would discuss, interpret...

"Elaboration of a tube" line in "Going Home"?

Although there was already some discussion on that verse, but I guess it'd be better to have a separate thread about these words. He will speak these words of wisdom Like a sage, a man of vision Though he knows he’s really nothing But the brief elaboration of a tube So, as Jarkko said - it is >tube<...

And it does cause you to wonder about lyrics to a song, doesn't it.
And such a perfect self-gift for you, eh, Mirek?
Right Lizzy - I am already thinking of such a t-shirt and a nice framed drawing on my wall.

Re: Leonard sent us two of his recent drawings

THE MUSE OF THE LABORATORY http://www.leonardcohenfiles.com/museoflab.html I'm just stunned and mesmerized. Leonard's drawing for chemists at last, with retorts & flasks! As a chemist I just bow my head and say - thank you, Leonard for this masterpiece. I do really hope that the reprints of this dr...
