Treaty on an open thread

Since his passing, I have been listening to Leonard Cohen’s final album, “You Want It Darker,” released just a couple of short weeks before his death. It is magnificent. This cut is Treaty.  Obsessed. I’ve seen you change the water into wine I’ve seen you change it back to water too I sit at your…


The light got in on an open thread

Tonight’s Friday Night music thread is dedicated to Leonard Cohen, who, like a bird on a wire, like a drunk in a midnight choir, tried in his way to be free. “I can’t run no more with that lawless crowd while the killers in high places say their prayers out loud. But they’ve summoned, they’ve…


So Long, Leonard

Leonard Cohen has died. Poet, singer, songwriter, rashi, lover, artist — what can I say? Cohen is/was a towering figure who loomed large in my life. He was my rabbi. I have no desire to eulogize him. It’s too painful right now, and couldn’t do him justice if I wanted to. I had meant to…

You Want It Darker on an Open Thread

Longtime Atlas readers know my obsession with Leonard Cohen. If I were a poet, I would be Lenny. I await with great excitement and anticipation his latest album, coming in October. This song is …. a prayer. Here’s one review: Leonard Cohen released a new song on Wednesday, which happens to be his 82nd birthday….


“Freedonia’s Going to War” on an open thread

And now for a little something different, eh? Freedonia. It has a nice ring to it. This was funny in 1933. 10 years later, not so much. Same thing – almost 100 years later. Freedonia’s Going To War (uncredited) from Duck Soup (1933) Music by Harry Ruby Lyrics by Bert Kalmar Performed by Groucho Marx,…
