The Null Device

Canada's Globe and Mail held an unofficial poll to select the nation's first poet laureate. And melancholist songwriter Leonard Cohen won by a landslide, getting 59%. His nearest rival was Margaret Atwood, with 19%. Unfortunately, as he lives in Los Angeles, he is probably ineligible for the post. (via bOING bOING)

I heard Cohen was doing the whole ascetic Buddhist monastery thing at the moment.

He was, but recently came back and recorded another album. (I don't have it, as I have an ethical problem giving money to Sony Music.)
