The Photo: August 2011
This month’s calendar photo was taken by Raeanne Rubenstein, circa 1970, in Nashville, Tennessee. According to Rolling Stone Images Of Rock & Roll,
For this photo session, Rubenstein traveled to the farm where Cohen lived. She found the idiosyncratic Canadian singer-songwriter, who had recently released his third album, Songs of Love and Hate, “handsome, friendly and naturally poetic.”

The calendar portion of the image has blue accents with the events in blue text and holidays in red text, all of which show up, of course, as black when printed in black in white. This month’s photo is in black and white.
Opening the JPG file produces an image that should print as-is on a standard (American) 8.5″ X 11″ sheet of paper with a standard laser or ink-jet printer with standard margins and settings by selecting “File – Print” or hitting “Control + P.” [Let's pause here to allow for mordant snickering.] Your mileage may vary, and adjustments may be necessary. All 2011 Leonard Cohen Calendar Project offerings are configured in the same format so once the settings on your printer with your paper produce the desired result, those settings should also work for future calendars.

- Each month the Heck Of A Guy 2011 Leonard Cohen Calendar Project features a photo and annotated dates pertinent to Leonard Cohen. These monthly calendars are typically made available for download at Heck Of A Guy during the last half of the preceding month. All published calendars can be found at Leonard Cohen Calendar Project.

- “Pertinent Dates” is a deliberately ambiguous category operationally defined as dates I find that seem important or interesting relative to Leonard Cohen. The current plan calls for the calendar to include major Jewish holidays but not national or other religious holidays. This is a pragmatic decision; a calendar that listed all Jewish, Catholic, Buddhist, Canadian, and American holidays would be overwhelming. Compiling this list is proving no simple task; readers are urged to recommend Cohen-pertinent dates by email or in the comments. [↩]
