Re: The Dublin live BluRay/DVD/3CD now announced

Amazon US shows the set as 3 cds and a dvd, but no where yet does the availability of bluray get mentioned. I have asked twice for help (phone and chat) and am told they have no indication of bluray option, but will refer it up the line. Hopefully will be able to pre-order the right set soon!

Re: Esther Cohen

Thelma promised a little background information on Esther from me. We did in fact come quite close to her, and considered her our "best New York friend." We thoroughly enjoyed her company at Broadway shows, museums, music shows, lunch and dinners as well as Cohen fan events. We never went into the c...

Esther Cohen

Esther Cohen It is with deep regret that I inform you of Esther Cohen's passing away last night. After Montreal 2000 she became a close and dear friend to Linda and I. We know she thoroughly enjoyed meeting and conversing with the many fans she met. Her energy and enthusiasm were contagious, and she...

Re: No promotion at all...

Something does seem amiss in promotion. The New York Times omitted mention of the album in their special feature on pop music in the Sunday paper, September 7. Did they misinterpret Sony's embargo on reviews of the album?

Have written the arts editor to complain. :-(

Re: New book:Everybody Knows by Harvey Kubernik

Pleased that Amazon managed to have the book delivered to me today. Unusual to have Sunday deliveries.

At first glance, a remarkably attractive book. Am sure all fans are going to like it.

Re: How to celebrate Leonard's 80th birthday

Linda and I emailed our pledge to Jarkko, with a notation it could even be more if needed to complete the project. Looks like a beautiful piece of sculpture to us, far more than just a bench.

Let's make it happen as a thoughtful and permanent tribute to our man!

Re: Coming So Far for Song

Lizzy is correct -- sorry if I was not clear. Esther refuses to compete with her brother by performing on stage. :-)

Re: How to celebrate Leonard's 80th birthday

I agree with short and simple. I don't even think it needs to mention the 80th birthday.

Would like a bench with a back, and inscriptions "Came so Far for Beauty" and "Leonard Cohen"

Re: How to celebrate Leonard's 80th birthday

Great thread this is ...... My vote is still for the Hydra bench as 80th, and very much like statue facing Lorca for future tribute. I too thought of cigarette, but my suffering with them and the societal damage they cause makes me prefer to leave that aspect to LC to handle as he wishes. Don't thin...
