Re: New Unified Hearts Logo

Marie - Eek! I must have been brainwashed already. Seriously though, it seems it's largely subliminal as far as concert screens go, as people will be socialising or focusing on the stage. I wouldn't know about Twitter, except that I believe it to be part of the collective dumbing-down that is part ...

Listening to the link in John Etherinton's post: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LmwCgQw3gDM of Leonard in 1979 reminded me of this wonderful British 'character' from the 1970s. Character is almost certainly doing him an injustice. He was a brilliant musician and lyricist. This is just superb: http:/...

Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

Hey - welcome to the Forum Gipsy Wife - Albeit belatedly. :oops: Funny feeling that you and I are of a similar vintage. ;-) My first 'live' exposure to Leonard was the Isle of Wight in 1970. Met him a few times - the most recent was last year at Kilmainham. Anyway. Hope you enjoyed the O2 gig. Dig a...

Re: Is It Just Me....

Well, the one thing this thread has done is encourage dialogue between Forum members without resorting to reams of external sources Helen. If you feel the need to copy tweets to the Forum (and we'll Never agree why that's necessary), they should all be in one place. Those threads have been establish...

I was going to add another comment, but I've just been told off in another thread for being disruptive. In more than 140 characters.

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Rotterdam, Holland - September 18, 2013

John and Robert, This is really inappropriate. I don't understand what the issue is here. The concert report threads have been this way since 2008 and have worked fine. That's five years of concert report threads with tweets, media reviews, media and fan photos, youtubes and first-hand accounts. So...

Re: Leonard Cohen, contender for Nobel Prize for Literature?

Oh dear. Pathetic. Robert, not pathetic at all. Twitter delivers more links to information that any other source I've ever used and I have been doing this since 1997. You just have to know how to search for it and have a little patience. If you do any searching on the Internet, you have to scroll o...
