I wrote this essay a few years back and while it won't change the world, I thought it is an enjoyable read. I hope you enjoy a little glimpse into my life.
Madonna is doing what she's always done, pushing buttons about how women are supposed to behave. Now it's simply about how 50-something-year-old women are to behave. And yes, she has great breasts, on a par with those of many 30-year-olds, so why shouldn't she flaunt them?
Some of the world's heaviest thinkers on faith and history infuse this topic with a gravitas worthy of all the effort. The question is which flavor of Mary Magdalene you like best.
There are a boatload of artists who play to packed venues in the here and now. It's rare that pop singers, country singers -- or any genre of artists for that matter -- have a long shelf life when it comes to maintaining a high-profile career.
How can I enjoy this movie -- when I have such disdain for so much of its music? And yet I did. I had a lot more fun watching Rock of Ages than I expected to; I also resented how much I enjoyed it, as a light, funny spoof of a bygone era.
"Always see yourself as thirty years old. See yourself as perfect, whole and complete, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually."
I say stop trying to ignore the Gay Pride parade to death, or strangle it with sarcasm. The Gay Pride parade isn't going anywhere. If you have to, allow it to become that tradition that you hate to do but do anyway, like Thanksgiving dinner with your family.
Guess who's been stirring up controversy around the world lately? That's right! Madonna's done it again. But has the 53-year-old material girl crossed the line this time, spitting in the face (figuratively speaking) of political correctness? Just how far is too far?
Wouldn't it be better if Edwards were providing free legal backup to those who need it than in prison at a cost of thirty thousand dollars per year to us taxpayers?
I have been encouraging folks to take a look at the films and report back on how it compares to their first viewing -- if they have seen it before and if they have not, how it aligns with their "understanding" of the auteur's style.
All she asked "is that you dance with me," and dance we did. Donna Summer, the voice of an era, gone at 63.
Why are teenagers listening to music that their parents were dancing to 25 years ago instead of rebelling against it? When I was 13, I may have had some knowledge of pop stars from a quarter century earlier, but I certainly didn't like any of their music.
Madonna is at the top of the Billboard charts, "Titanic" may be the highest-grossing movie of the week and "The Mummy," Twins, "Dumb and Dumber," "Summer School," "Anchorman," "Top Gun," "Total Recall" and even "Phantom of the Opera" are either getting sequels or being remade. Nothing is new, and that's sad.
If the existential slicing and dicing of pork from pig answers the ethical objections to meat-eating, can there be any real objection to the cultivation and consumption of vat-grown people meat?
