what rhymes with triple x?


I want to say it's just the weather, but it's really been quite lovely.

I'd like to say it's something major and tangible and worthy, but it's not.

It's just that knotty, lumpy feeling in the throat.

Been feeling blue.

But, I feel better. Something good just happened and I feel like a ton of bricks' worth o' worry has been lifted off my shoulders, followed by a solid massage. It kinda erased all the bad...things are on the up and up.

I also did this: thought about "old"-Like A Virgin-era Madonna after reading a Bust interview with Peaches (damn, she is a muthafuckinTRIP). So I pulled out the CD liner notes (so not as cool as if I had pulled out my *vinyl* copy I have of the album*snark, snark*) Right.
And then I found this, written by the Madge in 1984:

XTRA Special Thanks to:

Nile "Boom" Rodgers
-I knew him before the butter dripped off the noodle
(it looks and sounds so damn, good dunnit?)

My Family
-For nurturing my strange behavior
(I don't think that actually happened, did it, "O, Father"??)

Freddy DeMann
-For knowing what to do with it
(cheers to *all* the producers, songwriters, video directors and hairdressers who "knew what to do with" that It that Madonna has. Patrick Leonard, are you listening?)

Jelly Bean
-Goo Goo Ga Ga
(one of my personal favorite phrases ever--a somehow sophisticated way to express that complete state of drool. extra special cuz it was her DJ/love for quite a while, there--so it's romantic)

just reading walsh's blog and saw a link to an old article than quoted you. you, of course, knew this but I still did a WTF? double take for a sec. here's the old text:

Another ardent Replacements reunion advocate has been Minnesota Daily critic Brianna Riplinger, who recently wrote in her syndicated column, "Riplinger's Riffs," "I'm 20 years old, and I never got to see them live. To me and a lot of my friends, the Replacements have this mystery that no other band does. I don't care that they're not wild or drunk or crazy. I just want to hear the songs."

actually, i'm not sure what your last name is, but i think its riplinger. my profoundest apologies if this is not you. but i know you would stand behind the quote either way.

i heard "let the bad times roll" this morning on the current while at work and immediately grabbed out truck's label maker and printed that out. word. i made me listen to stereo this evening too. hmmm...
