Leonard Cohen puts on a wonderful live performance. Best show I've seen in years. That is all.

Man, I so want to see him, but when I looked yesterday the very cheapest seats up in the balcony were still well over $200 [Frown] I just don't think I can justify that right now. I'm bummed.

Birthday. Present. Success.

My husband will be the happiest person in the world, or I will die trying.

Oh, I am so endlessly jealous. Leonard Cohen is my hero and my muse. I'd do anything to be be able to see him.

Edit: Ok, he's coming to Boston, I've just got to figure out a way to come up with the money. I feel like this is something I have to do with us both getting older; I may not get another chance.

LC is 74, and I never thought I'd be able to see him in concert. But according to the New York reviews, he is in fine form: debonair, lively, and up for 3-hr sets. Suhweet. [Big Grin]

My beloved received a very small inheritance recently. Most has gone to paying the mundane things which need to be paid, but the little bit he set aside for fun has gone to my birthday present. He was able to find a ticket at a fraction of the going price via advanced sales. It's still a chunk of money, but it's less than I expected and oh-so-lovely a present.

I've only been to two concerts in my life, back in the 80s. (Don't ask.) Looks like third time will be the charm indeed.

Would "anything" in this case include the possibility of spending up to $800? Because if so, it's still quite simple for you to see him. [Smile]

His songs are wonderful, memorable, and really depressing. I get so sad when I hear him, then the sad song sticks in my head for days and weeks.

My son loves his music too. Once he was playing the guitar intro for Famous Blue Raincoat and when he got to the place where the words begin he sang "hate my life, hate my life, I hate my life, hate my liiiiiife..." it cracked me up.

I have to take frequent breaks from Leonard and listen to Carlos Vives or someone like that. It's just like when I'm reading Franz Kafka. I can see that he's a genius and his stuff is amazing, but it's so agonizing that I have to take it in short spurts with lots of leavening in between. I gather he doesn't have this effect on most of you?

Oh, he's definitely agonizing and crushingly depressing, but some of us are agonized and crushingly depressed. I can listen to Leonard Cohen all day.

I can't find anything for less than $180. This is a dilly of a pickle.
