Laughin' Len Live

Surely part of the thrill of a current Leonard Cohen concert is whether the 74 year-old might, er, croak while urging us to stuff the last tree that's left up the whole in our culture.

His singing voice actually seems more of a slightly breathless rasp than before, just a touch thinner than I remember, on this NPR cherry picking of his recent concert at The Beacon Theatre, but it certainly suits the songs well.

Went to see The Watchmen yesterday. They used the original Hallelujah in the shagging scene - Nite Owl and Silk Spectre in the flying thing (Archie) - and First We Take Manhattan at the end. Genius!
