Video: Leonard Cohen’s Island – Scenes Of Today’s Hydra + An Account Of Leonard Cohen’s Time On The Island

From the YouTube description:

Isolation from everything may be a way to find oneself. In 1960 a young Leonard Cohen bought a house in Hydra, a small Greek island in the middle of the Aegean sea. He was an unknown author. He left the island, ten years later, as a musician that would make an impact for generations. We follow the steps of Leonard Cohen in the island where he played his first concert among friends and met the love of his life. We will visit places he frequented and relive years that impacted the life and career of the great singer-songwriter through testimonies of some the island’s eldest.

“Only Leonard can assume the dual role of wise old sage and raging sex beast” – Leonard Cohen & Anjani Perform Never Got To Love You – Joe’s Pub 2007

lcanj

They [Leonard Cohen and Anjani] concluded with “Whither Thou Goest,” a song that had a pleasant, hymn-like quality, but of course, true to Leonard’s libido, had overtones of intimacy and romance. I don’t know how he does it. I swear he was making eyes at every lady in the house. I suppose only Leonard can assume the dual role of wise old sage and raging sex beast.

Leonard Cohen Beefcake Video: The Ladies’ Man Keeps His Hat On

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).
