Leonard Cohen and stuff

I’ve been listening to Songs from A Room a lot this week. It is a good album for a quiet, muggy June day. Recording for the next SL album is suddenly under way, which is something that I’ve been meaning to get around to for a while. I’m excited about the new tunes.  Has it really been over a year since Routine Glow?

Also, I doubt anyone who reads this follows or gives a shit about what’s going on in the chess world, but the Tal Memorial has been really exciting. It’s cool to see Luke McShane come up with wins against Kramnik and Aronian (!?). I’m looking forward to his game against Magnus on Monday, although I’d still like to see Carlsen win the tournament.
