the mouse is not currently focused on birthdays, but I have to mention today is the birthday of one of my musical icons, the great canadian poet leonard cohen. leonard was born on september 21, 1934 in westmount, quebec. the following vid was done by martin van golde and features leonard's amazing song avalanche. take a few and sit back and enjoy.
