a hit of

... until tonight i hadn't realized just how much i missed the staples of a russian party (this time of year the focal of the gathering begins with pancakes (the non-american kind) and digresses, or progresses, to songs). include vodka, newly weds and clementine oranges and you're on your way to a supreme sort of spectical. so i got my hit of l cohen tonight. special thanks to jonah (even though he wouldn't play american boy) for playing the crack and anal sex song for me ^_^

pictures will, i'm sure, be made available shortly. in the mean time, enjoy some leonard cohen at his finest...

The Future (as written and performed by Leonard Cohen)
Crack and Anal Sex (as performed by Jonah Katz)

Give me back my broken night
my mirrored room, my secret life
it's lonely here,
there's no one left to torture
Give me absolute control
over every living soul
And lie beside me, baby,
that's an order!
Give me crack and anal sex
Take the only tree that's left
and stuff it up the hole
in your culture
Give me back the Berlin wall
give me Stalin and St Paul
I've seen the future, brother:
it is murder.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing
Nothing you can measure anymore
The blizzard, the blizzard of the world
has crossed the threshold
and it has overturned
the order of the soul
When they said REPENT REPENT
I wonder what they meant
When they said REPENT REPENT
I wonder what they meant
When they said REPENT REPENT
I wonder what they meant

You don't know me from the wind
you never will, you never did
I'm the little jew
who wrote the Bible
I've seen the nations rise and fall
I've heard their stories, heard them all
but love's the only engine of survival
Your servant here, he has been told
to say it clear, to say it cold:
It's over, it ain't going
any further
And now the wheels of heaven stop
you feel the devil's riding crop
Get ready for the future:
it is murder

Things are going to slide ...

There'll be the breaking of the ancient
western code
Your private life will suddenly explode
There'll be phantoms
There'll be fires on the road
and the white man dancing
You'll see a woman
hanging upside down
her features covered by her fallen gown
and all the lousy little poets
coming round
tryin' to sound like Charlie Manson
and the white man dancin'

Give me back the Berlin wall
Give me Stalin and St Paul
Give me Christ
or give me Hiroshima
Destroy another fetus now
We don't like children anyhow
I've seen the future, baby:
it is murder

Things are going to slide ...

When they said REPENT REPENT ...

Mou'sif! I didn't know Leonard Cohen was so hardcore! I thought he was a "Dance Me to the End of Love" kinda guy... Ah, what a beautiful title! Though admittedly it pales in comparison to "The Future: Crack & Anal Sex"... Now there's something to look forward to! Well, that and the pictures; hopefully they're less graphic :P
