Japanese single

Post by jarkko » Thu Jul 18, 2002 9:54 pm

I every now and then check some of the sites that often have
rare Leonard Cohen items for sale (http://www.ebay.com auctions
and http://www.gemm.com) and today's search resulted in this very
interesting Japanese picture sleeve single:

(be sure to copy and paste the entire address)
Doesn't Leonard look like Humphrey Bogart???

Yes, he does Jarkko, while still looking like himself. Interesting cross-blend. What's he doing with the woman's head? It almost looks like he's pushing her under his coat.

Verrrrry interesting. She's definitely giving him head (hers). Sorry, couldn't resist!

But whose head is this he's dancing with on the threshing floor
whose darkness deepens in his arms a little more

Kush...the woman in the Japanese doesn't look gypsy.
Cute pun, Punlover.
Hanna....no, I don't remember that. However, it sounds like it must be a reference to that. I'm about to write you privately about my receipt!

The photo I have on my desktop is of Leonard looking toward his right, greyish-black "sweatshirt" with the ribbing on the outside; the background behind him is black, his hair is black, he's smiling [not!....couldn't resist....], okay,okay he has a hint of a reflective smile, no, not really, he's looking serious for a change :wink: , and his look is reminiscent of a dark-haired Richard Gere. A very dynamic photo [like all the rest :) ] and was in great contrast initially, with its darkness, to my previous desktop of the clear, clear water of the islands with the land form curving into a mountain on the left. Very light to very, very dark. Actually took some getting used to, but I've gotten compliments on it [yay for those who notice]. Will comment later, after I find it [wrote it down] as to what one Spanish girl said.

Maybe she was trying to climb inside Leonard?
