Honoring Mr. Cohen

Share this post

Mr. Leonard Cohen, from The True North Strong and Free, was just honored with Spain’s Prince of Asturias literature award for his incredible body of work.

For my sentimental self, this just might be his best song (not counting the aforementioned Best Cover Ever, by Jeff Buckley):

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
