- “Democracy” by Leonard Cohen

Captain Carrot Ironfoundersson of the City Watch was standing to attention, radiating keenness and a hint of soap.
“I volunteer to go, sir,” he said.
“Yes, I thought you probably would.”
“Is this a matter for the Watch?” said the lawyer Mr. Slant. “Mr. Cohen is simply returning property to its original owner.”
“That is an insight which had not hitherto occurred to me,” said Lord Vetinari smoothly. “However, the City Watch would not be the men I think they are if they couldn’t think of a reason to arrest anyone. Commander Vimes?”
“Conspiracy to make an affray should do it,” said the head of the Watch, lighting a cigar.
“And Captain Carrot is a persuasive young man,” said Lord Vetinari.
“With a big sword,” grumbled Mr. Slant.
“Persuasion comes in many forms,” said Lord Vetinari.

In case anyone has not seen this documentary before. I mean I titled my blog after it so you know I love it…

“Ladies and Gentlemen…Mr. Leonard Cohen” 

“This informal black-and-white portrait of Leonard Cohen shows him at age 30 on a visit to his hometown of Montreal, where the poet, novelist and songwriter comes “to renew his neurotic affiliations.” He reads his poetry to an enthusiastic crowd, strolls the streets of the city, relaxes in this three-dollar-a-night hotel room and even takes a bath.”

This is sad day for all people who know his music, who just know him. I remember when for the first time I listened cover of charming “Chelsea Hotel No 2” by Lana Del Rey 3 years ago and cover of amazing “Is This What You Wanted” by The Last Shadow Puppets few weeks ago. I love them but no one isn’t be able to sing them better than Leonard. You left us dear Leonard but you and your beautiful and deep voice always will be in our hearts.
Rest in peace Mr. Cohen
