Hey! Great News!

by Little Miss Attila on April 16, 2010

Gerard ran Leonard Cohen’s “Democracy.” So, guess what? You get to see it, too.

I can only imagine the email discussions that go on behind my back:

Retreiver: “Oh, no. Now we have to watch Leonard Cohen again. Can’t we train her not to run the Cohen videos, even when provoked? Even dogs can be trained; you’d think bloggers could, as well.”

Gordon: “WHAT was Gerard thinking? It’s like waving a red flag in front of a bull.”

Darrell: “Hey, I’ve been around a lot longer than most of you, and I’ve seen my share of Leonard Cohen videos. But at least it isn’t Freddie Mercury; it can be worse. It can always be worse.”

Foxfier: “Someone get her on to food, okay? Send her an email about brown rice versus short-grain white or something like that.”

Smitty: “Or grammar. She can never resist language-usage posts. Or is that language-use? I’ll go look it up . . .”

Cassandra: “I’ll whip up something on gender relations; that might help.”

Darleen: “Wait! I have a gay marriage post up, over at Jeff’s digs. That will keep her busy.”

Cynthia: “Did someone mention gay marriage? I’d love to talk about that, as soon as Joy dumps that loser heirloom thing, Mr. Stripey, and buys a bread machine.”

I remain, however, immovable. “Stubborn.” Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Leonard Cohen:

I’m sentimental, if you know what I mean,
I love the country, but I can’t stand the scene.
And I’m neither left or right, I’m just stayin’ home tonight
Getting lost in that hopeless little screen.

Hey, I weep at his version of “Hallelujah”…

There’s Cohen videos and then there’s everything else on youtube.

“Hallelujah” is great. I also like “Closing Time,” which as near as I can tell is about the endings of relationships / human mortality.

*sniffle* My blog doesn’t get linked?

I don’t understand. Is this a competition thing with Shatner? Most actors his age would be thrilled to have a Star Trek cameo every couple of years.

Can you write the rest of my stuff too?
It would free up a lot of time for me.
Remember not to get creative with the chemistry and math parts.

Post all the Freddie Mercury you want, too.
You can start with “Who Wants To Live Forever?”
The studio version preferably.

There’s no time for us
There’s no place for us
What is this thing that builds our dreams yet slips away
From us

Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever….?

There’s no chance for us
Its all decided for us
This world has only one sweet moment set aside for us

Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever?

Who dares to love forever?
When love must die

But touch my tears with your lips
Touch my world with your fingertips
And we can have forever
And we can love forever
Forever is our today
Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever?
Forever is our today

Who waits forever anyway?

Dang! He got OLD (the sexy heartthrob of youth)…Of course, my kids say that I am old, too. Tho not THAT old…The link to the video from your post doesn’t work any more, but my middle kid had shown it to me.

I still say the best movie soundtrack ever was that one with the Sisters of Mercy…

Am just back from several days up with Nanook of the North in live free or die country, with no internet, no phone , nothing but cooking, gardening (serious digging) watching the dog dig out voles and chipmunks, and watching the SNOW< SNOW SNOW….

You HAVE to get a breadmaker. The one you should get is the mini ZOjirushi thingy (will find you the link). I have a stupid CUisinart stainless steel space hog, but the small Z brand one has a tiny footprint and makes small loaves for a romantic dinner for two, or breakfast for two. It actually saves you money, because you will be content with bread and (homemade in the Crockpot) soup for dinner , made by those slave machines while you write, edit, perform general magic, and/or scour the blogosphere for something amusing or intelligent or at least cackle-worthy….
