I am a Hotel

this short film was important to me

it was filmed across the street from the building I worked in and I knew some of the dancers and well, we got to see Leonard around the neighbourhood during the filming


(trying to find a version without Dutch subtitles)

Made me cry. I remember his first albums I had, some kind of blue vinyl, of what I took of poor quality (not that I know), as maybe I killed the records by repetitive playing. Same record, just that I bought a second one.

@hingehead,
The Canadian media (of all sorts) had it everywhere all at once.

It was an avalanche of beeps and buzzes.

@ehBeth,
I'm blaming Trudeau's welcome to Trump for Mr Cohen's demise.

The only world leader that's got it so far is Angela Merkel.

If you have time for anything, listen to the interview with the cantor. It's a lovely tale of Leonard's connection to his hometown religious community.

In 1968, I saw his first album in a record store. Intrigued by the song titles and the picture of Joan of Arc on the back, I bought it. I instantly loved him, when I heard the first song, Suzanne. I bought his poetry collections and both novels (The Favorite Game and Beautiful Losers). And I kept buying his albums. His writing was comparable to Dylan's.

I got hung up on hearing The Traitor and listened to it numerous times per week for months.

I read somewhere that he was once asked in an interview what made him laugh. His reply was: "A really good car crash." Made me laugh anyway.
