Leonard Cohen Journal
Last night I finished another journal, which means today I start a new one. A friend bought me a special journal at the recent Leonard Cohen concert. On its cover are the words, "Stop writing everything down," a line from "Different Sides," one of my favorite songs from his newest album, Old Ideas. I think that using this journal is going to turn things around for me. After all, how can I write about depressing stuff in a Leonard Cohen journal?
I started the music blog to let people know about all the good music that is out there. I only review CDs that I like. (This is partly selfish, as I don't want to listen to music I dislike.) Good Things About Bad Movies is about finding something good even in the worst films.
I created an index, with a list of all of my blog entries, including Shakespeare entries and music reviews, arranged alphabetically by subject. Here is the link: http://michaeldohertyindex.blogspot.com/
My friend Jason and I have a web series, "Grandmother Winsome's Variety Minute," and several episodes are up on You Tube, and also on the Grandmother's Fanny Game blog. What else? I am fascinated by the Marquis De Sade and Elizabeth Bathory. I often make decisions based on the humor factor.
