I think if you tied Madonna in chains, put her in a casket and sank her in the ocean she would STILL find ways to get everyone to talk about her! While I am not her biggest fan in the world (her musics ok, I just don’t do backflips over it), I have to tip my hat to her marketing genius. She never fails to get people talking about her.
I read one article
today saying how it appeared Madonna’s performance with Brittany Spears and
Christina Aguilera was “symbolic of her handing the torch to the younger
stars.” Excuse me? Did you see the same performance as I did? Brittany and Christina were nothing more than Madonna’s back up singers! Let’s see…She has Brittany dispose of her top hat, then Christina has to take her coat, and then they spend the rest of the performance flanking Madonna…sorry, but that is not “passing the torch”. To me that was more “Let me show you kiddies how the adults do it.” Trust me folks, Madonna is a LONG way from passing the torch to anyone, and especially the likes of Brittany or Christina.
First Jesse Ventura became governor of Minnesota, now Arnold Schwarzenegger is running for California governor. My theory? The cast of the sci-fi movie “Predator” is slowly trying to take over the country.
Like I said, this is more for me than anyone else, so hence my subject….&$(%)#& PAINT VARIATIONS ON TOYS! I am responsible for writing all the Ebay auctions for the company, and we just got done running 3 & 3/4″ GI Joe’s. (The little guys from the 1980′s)
These pains-in-the-butt had more paint variations than you could shake a stick at, and if you get the auction description just a little bit wrong it can mean the difference between a $5.00 figure and a $40.00 figure. Well, I made one of those mistakes. I have corrected the situation to the guys satisfaction, but the fact I even have to worry about it just annoys me.
And what brainiac at Hasbro (the company who made them) thought “You know…he had a black hat…let’s make him have a yellow hat for the second half of the run just to annoy people!”
Ok, well one post worked, so let’s give you some idea of what I plan on doing. A long time ago (around 1999) I got the idea for “Rural Ramblings”. It was going to be something like a blog, but I got tired real quick or creating a page for each entry. As my website lay dormant for several years, the idea died, until I finally came to the conclusion I *needed* to write.
So low and behold I decided to jump on the blogger bandwagon. It will never be earth shattering, 99% of the entries will probably never get read, but at least I gave it another try.
I will probably write lengthier essays once in a blue moon, but the main content of my site will be moved here. Enjoy or hate it….I’ll be blunt, it’s more for me than anyone.
