“We think you are a god. The proposal of our 3way moves from impossible to improbable to remote possibility” Anjani To DrHGuy (2008)

The Cohencentric Farewell Tour: The impending termination of Cohencentric has triggered a search of the archives and the consequent discovery of some never-published entries, such as this one.

Ongoing readers may recall that back in 2006, DrHGuy first connected with Leonard Cohen via Anjani Thomas, Leonard’s backup singer and his forefront sweetie. This process featured DrHGuy proposing a threesome/foursome to Anjani (a Leonard-free threesome/foursome, by the way).

Ah, it’s the age-old story … Boy (that would be me) finds girl (Anjani) via composing a review of girl’s album (Blue Alert). Boy, coming across a comparison of girl to Holly Cole and Tanita Tikaram, makes the obvious move, interjecting into the review the suggestion for a four-way comprising him and the three female vocalists. Girl leaves a positive comment on the post, thanking boy for the positive review. Boy publishes next post interpreting girl’s comment as an indication that girl is torn between running to him and staying with her boyfriend – Lynyrd Skynyrd, Lenny Kravitz, Leonard Bernstein … Lennie somebody, Negotiations ensue re four-way Vs three-way and consequent permutations of participants.  Eventually, however, girl sends a Dear John letter (technically, a Dear DrHGuy letter), and it’s splitsville (aka boy loses girl). Boy gets autographed Blue Alert album from girl and autographed poetry volume from boyfriend/poet/singer-songwriter/icon as consolation prize.

Happens every day.

But, there’s another chapter to the story, offering a flicker of hope for the afore referenced liaison. Two years after Anjani inexplicably turned down the hookup, a period during which DrHGuy was, despite the rejection, posting intermittently about her and Leonard, she sent an email about those online efforts:

we think you are a god.
the proposal of our 3way moves from impossible to improbable to remote possibility

The boost to DrHGuy’s morale notwithstanding, he had the fortitude to reply

Jeeze – qualifying as a god only earns the “remote possibility” of a threeway. Who does a guy have to sleep with to – well,  sleep with two more?

Just another day in the life of the premier Leonard Cohen blogger.

    A comparison with Tanita Tikaram! I am impressed. I love her stuff. Tanita in a four-way as well? You do aim high, you rascal..
