Re: Author of "Eat,Pray,Love" quotes Leonard Cohen on Oprah

Hi Lizzy, Yes, you're right in that we shouldn't take up the 'News' spot with a back and forth, but it is an older topic and will be taken over by more pertinent posts, from other threads. Mind you, there was a (short) time when a few lines on us playing nice in the sandbox might be considered 'news...

Re: Author of "Eat,Pray,Love" quotes Leonard Cohen on Oprah

Haha...! Hi Lizzy and all. Yeah, I have to admit that, at first, I was a bit miffed that a couple of hundred 'strangers' came to play in what I was beginning to think of as 'our' sandbox. But, it worked out for the best. It's kind of hard to keep Leonard and crew 'a secret'. More than anything, I'm ...

Re: Author of "Eat,Pray,Love" quotes Leonard Cohen on Oprah

Huh, that's interesting. Leonard has fed the imaginations of more people than he realizes I think. I read a guy's 'sig' or 'quote' somewhere that went "The work of Leonard Cohen is the closest thing I have to prayer". I thought that was pretty powerful. But hands down, the most often used quote of L...

Re: Author of "Eat,Pray,Love" quotes Leonard Cohen on Oprah

It's funny, sweet and nostalgic, really, that so many of us have looked at Leonard in the 'past tense' - old photos, old discussion - Old Ideas. We saw him leave to Mt. Baldy, saw him return, heard 10 New Songs and Dear Heather - we were jubilant when we heard news of his FIRST TOUR SINCE G-D KNOWS ...

Re: Honolulu - Portland - Las Vegas: PRESALE INFO WITH LINKS

It's up to you where you stay, but as I've been to Vegas a few times, the Imperial Palace (right across the street from Caesars) has always been a nice, kind of mid- classy play to stay (as long as they haven't changed much), and like most Vegas deals, airline/hotel deals are very reasonable (at lea...

Re: Honolulu - Portland - Las Vegas: PRESALE INFO WITH LINKS

Sorry to be blunt, but I"m flailing about, at the last minute on just learning that there will be a concert (2 really) in Vegas, and I'm trying to find links to the presale incl. cost - as I've just learned of this, I'm finding it hard to wade thru all the hugs and memories and so on. This is the pr...

Re: Master Poems - Again

Well, at the risk of getting my fingers crimped by the mods. (you know? at one time, the mods. didn't mod. and the best topics were off topic), I'm not a big fan of Glass - I find his work plodding and repetitive. But that's just me. Therefore, I've not yet gotten into BOL. Or Book of Mercy (BOM sou...

Re: Master Poems - Again

Well, I'm with you there. His voice is noticeably different from his 'salad days' (if he ever really had any) and his more mature voice. I think his more mature voice to be yummier. I think what Leonard said, even in the preface to BL is 'what you hold in your hands is more like a sunstroke than a b...

Oh. Wow. I guess I best get into the 21st century. Frankly, I'm not not all that big on BL, although I do have the T-shirt :D - I find Master Poems does it for me. Good luck in your search for the MP3 uh...thingy... :D

Re: Leonard #10

Thanks so much for the links! I guess I could have looked him up on YouTube myself, but the obvious doesn't always work :roll: And he's a 'true' one-namer. Like 'Cher' or 'Madonna'. I'm guessing he's been around for a long time. But like Edith Piaf, his popularity likely stays pretty much within the...
