I can't believe no one has posted on the "Leonard Cohen: Live in London" presentation on CBC tonight.
First, I missed part of it. If this is the year of the rerun, with CBC ending all their series early and starting summer re-runs April 2, why do we have to wait until April 16 to see this programme again on Bold? Yet I can see multi episodes of Being Erica on the CBC website.
Anyway, I saw enough tonight to know that the master just keeps getting better. The way he respects his band and his audience is delightful. And his sung poems are still unique. But most of all, he's the ultimate cool. If London can think of Canada as Leonard Cohen, then the recent "Cool Britannia" image could be revived as "Cool Canada."
Long may he rule!
