‘Bout Time!

Madonna gets crucified each night of her new tour, and all I can say is it’s about time. Why didn’t anybody think of this sooner? Now, those of you who know Me, know that I would throw in a little shock value from time to time. Remember when I said I didn’t come to bring peace, but a sword? I make sure parties have the alcohol flowing. Hookers wash My feet with their hair at get-togethers. I spit in the dirt and rub it in people’s eyes. I flip tables. I know a thing or two about shock value… and I’ve seen enough wannabe preachers in My time to know desperation through shock value when I see it. You ever have some religious freak tell you that “fags go to Hell”? To Me, that’s kinda like being fake crucified on a mirror ball cross with a microphone… meaning it’s more lame than righteous culture shock.

With one desperate “lesbian” kiss to Britney, Madonna blew away her gift of being culturally relevant and it is depressing to see her attempt to reclaim her past glory. You would think being crucified on a mirror cross might be a little shocking, but she used to disturb the world more by simply dancing through burning crosses and kissing black priests. She has crossed the line… not of offending, but for her, much worse… she has crossed the line where nobody cares. This feels like a flailing attempt to grasp onto anything that might rattle ones nerves, but it only looks like someone flailing to not fall on their face.

That being said, that song “Hung Up” is amazing! Throwaway pop that makes Me wiggle every time I hear it. She has a knack for these songs, and I will defiantly stand by My claim that “Music” was one of the best albums of 2000. Most of you have probably already heard this, but this Death Cab For Cutie Vs. Madonna Remix is killer.

Jesus, I try to be hip. I think Madonna sucks... and my hipster friends think she sucks too... except for those who seem to like her only to be ironic. So, essentially we're all good.
But then these chicks The Pipettes come along... and it seems the hipsters like them! Personally, I think they're being duped and The Pipettes might as well be The (Phil) Spice-tor Girls... I mean, sure the blond is smoking hot and 'Pull Shapes' is decent... but come on?!!?! Oh yeah, that blond is hot! Will you bless us with your thoughts on the music (and, if you want, the smoking hot blond)?

AND it's precisely because you TRY to be hip rather than ARE hip that you actually suck. Madonna sucks? I suppose you're into collegiate post-grunge bands that just get by with knowledge of four chords (that crucial fourth is for variation's sake), and songs about......nothing in particular other than boredom and the glaring inability to write songs in the first place. Interestingly enough, you've not mentioned any of your preferred bands; you stay "cool" that way, keeping yourself unpeggable. But the attitude says it all, son, the attitude indeed says it all. Madonna rocks whether you're truly cool or not, and the f**king Pipettes are less than a murmur in the pantheon of recording "artists". And as for you and your, ahem, "hip" self, well......

Come on, anonymous... i assumed that if you were on blog which is hosted by Jesus (for christsakes!!), you'd not be thrown by a little sarcasm!!
I'm glad I didn't go into my spiel about how my Birdmonster CD is my prize possession even though I can't stand listening to them... I woulda been crucified like that musical genius, Madonna.
I really like Sebadoh... do they qualify as a collegiate post-grunge band?

Sebadoh always seemed like "Pavement for boys with zits". Am I wrong? (trick question).

Haha... maybe!!
Pavement is awesome too... but the sensitive indie boy in me prefers Sebadoh. I wonder if Lou Barlow offended you with the song "Mary" off Emoh? Seems a little blasphemous... but it's a great song.
