Lightning Baitby Michael BrownPosted on August 4, 2006January 2, 20228 Comments on Lightning Bait So tell me, has the “Material Girl” gone too far this time? Let’s put it this way–I wouldn’t want to be standing next to her during a thunderstorm. 8 Comments Mike the Eyeguy August 4, 2006 I guess no one has any opinions on Madonna. 🙂 scott August 5, 2006 She is a tired worn old hag who is relying on her old methods of reinvention to make headlines. However, her uncanny ability to adapt to the times has gone the way of any relevant and worthwhile music she can possibly make. She’s done. The Catholic Church should just let her be. Let her return to her Jewish cult and do what she does. They have survived far worse than this. Of course that’s just my opinion. Mike the Eyeguy August 5, 2006 There we go, that’s what I was looking for–a common sense critique from a music and media-savvy preacher man! You’re right, the Catholic Church has bigger fish to fry. But what of the Daily Mail’s report of the thousands who packed Wembley Arena and “gasped” in “astonishment” at the 47-year-old singer’s “perfectly toned derriere?” That’s disturbing. Mommyham August 5, 2006 Have to say that I completely agree with scott, with one exception: usage of the word “hag.” C’mon now, that’s not nice, nor is it turning the other cheek for her to strike…. She’ll get what she deserves, I’m confident of that. Just what it is that she deserves? Not for me to determine – the Big Guy’s got that covered. Mike the Eyeguy August 5, 2006 Mommyham, Hey thanks for stopping by and taking the time to weigh in! I’ll ignore the double entendre (ok, not totally) and point out that Scott is really into “cheek turning” and if you pinned him down on this he would agree that even The Material Girl is not beyond Redemption’s long reach. But Scott likes to write for effect, and just like my stuff, you need to sprinkle a little salt over the monitor as you read. Which brings me to lightning, which is of course a little tongue in cheek (my bad) too since I know full well that Madonna may be shaking her derriere and chanting Kabbalah prayers up until the day she dies with no apparent ill effects. As you say, that’s for the “Big Guy” to decide when that happens and what happens afterward. Still, she’s stirring up some seriously bad karma with her latest stab at all things sacred. Mommyham August 6, 2006 I agree with the karma….I guess my take on it is summed up in Galatians 6:7. You know, really with respect to Madonna and all of her antics, it makes me very sad. Really, really sad, me being a psych person and all, her behavior is an indicator of really bad abuse and misuse [of her] as a child. And the sadness continues b/c you’d think by now, with therapy and/or the right spirituality she’d have overcome that. All indications (this) say she hasn’t….may she and the Lord find each other someday. As for your buddy, nah, I wasn’t calling him out – I just like to debate 🙂 I’m usually fairly good at rounding out a discussion with points unadressed. Mike the Eyeguy August 6, 2006 Yes you are, and you are always welcome here to give any discussion a good “rounding!” Come back soon, ya hear? scott August 6, 2006 My cheek is fully turned. But I “like to write for effect?” Who, me? With that said, maybe “hack” is a better word than “hag.” Hack seems more critique oriented. I’m just not sure that Madonna truly believes in anything but Madonna. Comments are closed.
