Cohencentric, my other blog, has long been. by a wide margin. the most popular Leonard Cohen website (according to Alexa). In fact, it continues to hold that ranking to this day although no new posts have appeared for almost three months – but that’s about to change.
Why? Because, after publishing more than 7,700 posts chock-full of information, photos, videos, animations, audio recordings, and humor and accumulating more than 5,000,000 hits from its opening on March 7, 2015 to its final post on Nov 3, 2018, Cohencentric will make its final exit from the online stage January 27, 2019.1
DrHGuy’s Favorite Cohencentric Post
I immodestly confess that I love a lot of Cohencentric entries, some fact, some fiction, some fantasy, some photoshopped, some my own product, some the work of others… A few graphic samples follow:
But, my favorite would be Lunch At Leonard’s In LA – Leonard Cohen & Kezban Özcan Host Nosh For Duchess & DrHGuy
Let me know if there is a Cohencentric post you especially relish.
Note: I am republishing selected posts from Cohencentric (my former Leonard Cohen site), especially those offering information not available elsewhere, here on AllanShowalter.com (these posts can be found at).
Credit Due Department: The photo atop this post was taken by Pete Purnell, whose description follows:
This photo was taken on Friday 20th September 2013 in Amsterdam. It is the last moment of Leonard’s last concert in Europe and a few hours before his 79th birthday.
By this gesture he is saying, “Thank you friends for being here, it is deeply appreciated.” To me, his gesture reflects how we regard Leonard now. Thank you Leonard, thanks for being here, it is deeply appreciated.
