50 YEARS OF MADONNA.

Thanks for commenting so voraciously lately! I'm truly honored.

A rare night of open mic karaoke at my local bar tonight! It should be fun! It'd be nice if I could sing a Madonna song, but the only one I can pull off nicely without sounding like a big homo is "Drowned World/Substitute For Love." The vocal range is just right for a dude like me, without having to go into the ridiculous faggy upper registers that her other songs require.

Speaking of Madonnee, she turns 50 tomorrow! FIFTY! Half a century old! DAMN! Congratulations! I found a very good article about LA REINA DEL POP, but unfortunately it's in Spanish, although I guess you can translate it using one of those web services or at least look at the purty pictures. Even more fascinating was her brother's appearance on Howard Stern's show yesterday morning! THAT had me riveted fer sure. Fat gay balding Christopher Ciccone, who used to be very handsome and still has that booming sexy voice, was there to promote his tell-all book on his big sister. He said Madonna is very cheap despite the fact she is worth at least half a billion, and that she has made family members pay their way for stuff she could've paid for easily. He said that his favorite moment was working with her to design her 1993 Girlie Show Tour, and that he made some $200,000 for it, but that he hated Madonna at times because she would treat him like shit and go off with her annoying tantrums. He said Madonna takes herself very seriously, and rarely laughs at herself. Surprisingly, he also had a lot of very nice things to say about her; he loves her and feels they will get close again one day, as soon as she dumps that homophobic asshole husband of hers, Guy Ritchie. He said Guy is THEE main reason they've drifted apart. He had a lot of other petty things to say about his sister, but it didn't sound like anything too bad really. He said Warren Beatty might've been bi, JFK Jr. was bad in bed according to Madonna (and prolly gay according to Chris), and Sean Penn was the best lover Madge probably ever had. Oh! And Chris said his niece Lourdes was gonna rebel big time due to mama Madonna's very strict ways. You can hear a quick snippet of the interview here.

Loren Soth's last two posts are pretty interesting, particularly his Thursday post, where he talks about racism and how sensitive we've become that we can't make witty satiric racial jokes as openly anymore without stirring up people. This is the case with the new film Tropic Thunder which is getting some people all bent out of shape, due to Robert Downey Jr. playing a black man, and jokes in the film about the mentally disabled or something. Lighten up people! Have we become this politically correct now? Did the Olympic basketball team from España go too far? LOLOLOLOL!

A possible trip to Las Vegas for Veteran's Day weekend in the works! And Madonna would be at the MGM Grand that Sunday night too! I hope I can work it all out! WOOHOO!

I wish Madonna 50 more years, and I hope that some day she finds some peace. She doesn't strike me as a happy person..... but then, it's been a long time since she confided in me.......

Sing a Beatle song for me, ok??

People forget the highest form of flattery is imatation. Beside the basketball photo, a tennis team photo showed them dowing the "Chinky-Eye" thing too.

If anyone has every watched hispanic television, culturally speaking there is nothing wrong with this. They are just could be just saying "we are going to be chinese". LOL... yeah perhaps maybe your better not watch spanish/mexican comedies... it will definately offend uptight people. OMG No more "La Indiana Maria"!

Geez, people need to get over themselves.

I will admit I felt a tiny bit guilty about laughing at some of the jokes in TROPIC THUNDER, but damn, it was so freakin' funny. I think that was part of the point of the film. We take ourselves way too seriously.
