‘Holiday.’

Holiday, Madonna

Come, I will conceal nothing from you: I kind of feel sorry for Madonna. There was a science fiction story I read once where it was said of the villain that “the worst thing was, he thinks he’s happy.” Is Madonna happier than that 25 year old kid who wrote that song? I dunno. I wonder if she does.

‘Borderline.’

This came out in 1983, and I have to say: I respect the heck out of Madonna’s ruthlessness. I mean, she’s a talented artist, sure. But you could bounce rocks off of her ability to focus. It’s impressive.  I don’t think that it all makes her particularly happy, but it’s impressive.

Borderline, Madonna

Quote of the Day, …Damn, That’s Cold edition.

Allahpundit, wearily commenting on the thoroughly sanitized and poll-tested transgressive nature of last night’s mass wedding at the Grammies, finishes up:

Oh well. At least the elderly Madonna impersonator near the end was convincing.

That was just mean.

Tweet of the Day, This Is Why I Like Twitter edition.

It’s perfectly suited for just showing me things like this, without trying to explain.

And no, I don’t want to know. There’s no way that the original intent would be as interesting as “Madonna doing a homage to Boss Hogg.” No way at all. And that shows just how bad things have gotten in the entertainment industry, too…

Guy Ritchie’s BMW Film The Star, revisited.

…Honestly, for no reason whatsoever except that I remembered it, and it’s just as funny now as when I saw it the first time. I suspect that Ritchie himself has had a drink lately and fired that puppy up, just to get a therapeutic chuckle or two out of it…
