    1. I have always always loved Leonard Cohen.

    Thank you!

    You think the only reason that people won't vote for a warmongering Third Way fracking-enabling cluster bomb throwing H-1B increasing lying pandering corporate and Wall Street shill who says she has no problem putting abortion rights on the table is because we are mad about Bernie?  Um, nope.

        4. I don't know if you are familiar with "Everybody Knows" –

        http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/leonardcohen/everybodyknows.html

        Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
        Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
        Everybody knows that the war is over
        Everybody knows the good guys lost
        Everybody knows the fight was fixed
        The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
        That’s how it goes
        Everybody knows
        Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
        Everybody knows that the captain lied
        Everybody got this broken feeling
        Like their father or their dog just died

        Everybody talking to their pockets
        Everybody wants a box of chocolates
        And a long stem rose
        Everybody knows

        …..

        And everybody knows that it’s now or never
        Everybody knows that it’s me or you
        And everybody knows that you live forever
        Ah when you’ve done a line or two
        Everybody knows the deal is rotten
        Old Black Joe’s still pickin’ cotton
        For your ribbons and bows
        And everybody knows

        And everybody knows that the Plague is coming
        Everybody knows that it’s moving fast
        Everybody knows that the naked man and woman
        Are just a shining artifact of the past
        Everybody knows the scene is dead
        But there’s gonna be a meter on your bed
        That will disclose
        What everybody knows

        Song was released in 1988, and was true then, and true now.

        I love Cohen, and I love Bob Dylan.  Kinda sappy here, but – truth and beauty.

        8. I like his NEW sound…… deeper…more gravitas!

        I didn’t realize that he’s 81 years old!

          13. Did you watch the second season of True Detective?

          They used Leonard Cohen’s “Nevermind” for the theme song.  I’ve been a big fan since about 1968.
