This entry focuses on Heck Of A Guy items that may have been overlooked because, for example, sections were added to posts some time after those posts were published, the items are associated with Heck Of A Guy but reside on another web site, or posts were lost in the crowd of as multiple entries were published on and around Leonard Cohen concert dates.
MP3 Downloads Of Leonard Cohen’s “Lullaby” Added
In response to reader requests, I’ve converted the videos featured in yesterday’s post, Three New Songs From The Leonard Cohen World Tour – “Lullaby”, to MP3s that can be downloaded.
To pick up these songs, go to the last heading, cleverly called Download “Lullaby” MP3s, at Three New Songs From The Leonard Cohen World Tour – “Lullaby”. Links and instructions for downloading are found in that section.
Pix, Quotes, And More At DrHGuy
DrHGuy, the Heck Of A Guy affiliated mini-blog, features very brief daily posts, typically consisting of no more than a photo or a few words. Most but not all of these entries have to do with Leonard Cohen, and, while some items are derivatives of Heck Of A Guy posts, there are many photos and quotations at DrHGuy that have never appeared here.
Yesterday, for example, DrHGuy carried this section about Leonard Cohen World Tour Earns $65 million In Ticket Sales
Over $65 million in concert ticket sales have been reported for Canadian singer/songwriter Leonard Cohen since his world tour kicked off in the spring of 2008, playing both arenas and theaters. Tour promoter Concerts West/AEG Live has reported box office totals from thirteen recent shows in the U.S. including a sold out concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden which grossed more than $1.4 million, placing Cohen at No. 2 on our tally.1

Overlooked Collages That Should Be Looked Over
Published just before the especially popular First DSM V Leonard Cohen Fan Diagnosis Unveiled – 301.LC Cohenphilic Personality Disorder, the Leonard Cohen World Tour Collages escaped notice. It’s a matter of taste, of course, but I immodestly contend that these two collages, one comprising scenes from the Leonard Cohen World Tour and the other featuring only shots from the final US concert in San Jose are nifty enough to warrant a quick viewing and, if you’re way into Leonard Cohen, downloading for use as desktop wallpaper.
Icing Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”
Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah Hits The Ice, featuring a video showing off an unexpected (at least by me) use of “Hallelujah” by Shae-Lynn Bourne and Claude Lemieux, strikes me as fascinating. I think you might find it worth a viewing as well. The screenshot above is only the “broken Hallelujah” move; watch for the “major lift.”
