We've been talking and talking over the last couple of days. At some points there's been crying alongside talking. Today someone said that some other colleges held two-minute silences for Leonard Cohen. Instead of silence, we decided to celebrate him by listening to his music in class. These are the four versions of 'Hallelujah' I watched with my class.

There was even some laughter when someone said that Jon Bon Jovi makes out with the mic. Yesterday, we talked about the carnivalesque, about how laughter is necessary. We need poetry, music, and art -- and yes, humour -- more than ever.

Great. More sad news. Just keep it coming.

Fortunately, I have several of his albums that I can mourn to through the day.

It's such a shame, there will be people who would've discovered his music soon who will no longer be able to see the man himself. Such is the way with Bowie and others we've lost this year. It makes me so sad for future generations. Much like I am gutted myself that I will now never be able to see Brian play/sing with AC/DC

As Milly said, at least his work will live on for a very long time. <3
