Warning: Leonard Cohen Veneration At Dangerous Level
The 2008-2010 Leonard Cohen World Tour concerts have repeatedly been associated with acclamations of religious experiences, cosmic significance, and mystic ecstasy. In short, Leonard Cohen has (deservedly) been immersed in respectful adoration and is now treated with a degree of genuine reverence unmatched by any living pop music artist.
Ongoing readers know what that means.
Yep, it’s once again time for Cohencentric to rescue Leonard Cohen from his self-inflicted veneration overdose.
The Ladies’ Man Video Project
Now, DrHGuy does not go for the cheap laugh at the expense of others — unless it’s really, really funny.
In any case, the intent of this video is not ridicule; rather, the goal is furnishing a valid alternative to the current tsunami of hyper-reverence. After arduous and prolonged seconds of deliberation, the path became evident. Consequently, Cohencentric offers – as an antidote to all those recent reviews and videos portraying Leonard Cohen as a musical deity – a video presentation of Leonard Cohen As A Hunk1 (DrHGuy has been advised by usually reliable sources that many women consider Mr Cohen somewhat attractive).

- Admittedly, this aspect of Leonard Cohen may hold disproportionate interest to the ladies. But, that seems fair – one can’t very well be a Ladies’ Man without the participation of the ladies. [↩]
