Leonard Cohen

Last year Leonard Cohen embarked on his first concert tour in 15 years. Word is, his ex business manager ripped off most of his money and he was out to recoup some cash. Last month the DVD and CD of his first concert "Live In London" was released. I bought it immediately and we listened to it on the road in Hungary. Pitchfork are hosting the complete DVD for one week only. Go watch it all immediately (here). His version of "Who by fire" is great. And "Everybody Knows", sounds like prophecy for the tough times we are facing:

NOTE: I have had to remove the video and instead (the video has been removed, sorry). I cannot bear the autostart and there appears to be no way to turn it off. 80% I tell you.

Thanks Yuval for pointing me to this.

p.s. (You can now ignore this message) I realize that this video breaks the cardinal rule and starts immediately when you navigate to this page. This is completely unacceptable. I have tried and searched for a way to prevent this, but to no avail. It's very 80% of me. If I can't find a way to fix this in the next day or two, I will remove the video. Please accept my most humble apologies.

Thanks - nice memories. And the pitchfork site even comes through our firewall at work - we supposedly block all streaming media sites.
