DrHGuy & Duchess of Durham Nuptials Celebration
Friends and family are gathering for festivities this weekend commemorating my marriage to the Duchess of Durham last month (so much for those who said it wouldn’t last). It should be interesting. The Duchess’s favorite Leonard Cohen song is “Dance Me To The End Of Love” while I prefer “Do I Have To Dance All Night.”
In any case, preparing for the event and spending time with friends precludes creating new posts for a few days. As noted on the Cohen-mounted sign (adapted, of course, from an item found in the Dominique BOILE collection), Heck Of A Guy will be back in the blogging business by October 5, 2011.
To fill that fallow period until October 5, Heck Of A Guy offers a few blasts from the past to keep readers amused.
2008 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Leonard Cohen Induction – Including The Lost In Space Episode
Today’s recommendation is the trilogy of posts dealing with Leonard Cohen’s 2008 entry into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, including a rare Leonard Cohen WTF moment that occurred as he (like The Ventures and John Mellencamp) tried negotiating the maze from the candidates’ waiting area to the stage. An excerpt follows:
The captions below are, obviously, only my guesses about the thought process that went on following Leonard Cohen’s initial realization that he was adrift in the Waldorf’s own Bermuda Triangle.
From left to right: 1. “Why did entering the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame seem like a good idea?” 2. “If the stage isn’t to the right, it must be to the left” 3. “Well, if that’s the stage, I’m kinda disappointed in the turnout.”
