Yes, kids, the new Madonna CD is upon us. I like it. OK, that is not true. I more than like it. You see, I think I’ve shared this with you before — I don’t want to like Madonna, but she simply forces me to love her! This is a great dance album. Borrowing heavily from the whole synth Georgio Moroder/Donna Summer sound, sampling from ABBA, mixing in that string-around-the wrist-mysticism she’s grown so fond of and just out-and-out stealing from Kylie and the Breck Girl-look circa 1976 — the whole CD just rules!

And barely a moment of rapping about expensive coffee or bitching about the woes of being rich and famous. …tho, there is a hint of that. It is just a fun grouping of dance songs! Tho, I disagree with all that stuff that has been printed about Madonna “returning to her 80’s roots” — Sorry, but the normal weight Material Girl is gone. Once one creates a book of near-porn, crosses the big pond, starts hunting fox and sporting a faux British accent — I don’t think there is any turning back. Tho, I do like the “I Love New York” song — tho, it is just marketing. Who cares? It works.

I wish I had something of real import to share tonight, but I don’t. I’m too busy dancin’!

    Ok, that first photo of Madonna? I need my hair THAT color. I’ve got roots now so I am fucked and have to color the stupid stuff, I may as well have a fabulous take on what nature gave me… a nice shade to be certain but OMG, I love that hair she’s got going on!
