Damn, am I getting tired of that banner ad for new age nonsense that Adsense keeps pumping out. Its weird, you'd think I would have written enough stuff by now for it to change. For that matter you'd think the mention of Madonna in the post that made it appear would have brought up some sort of Madonna related ad. Then again Ms. Ciccone hasn't done much of note lately other than appearing in the gossip columns. She's probably past due for a new album, even if its the typical contractual obligation greatest hits with a new single as a bonus package.

Tuesday morning's trivia question on CBC Saskatchewan's Morning Edition dealt with Elton John's Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy album, which debuted at number one in the US this week in 1975. I imagine a lot of people have forgotten how big Elton was in the early '70s, for a while being probably the biggest solo artists on the planet. Nowadays he's pretty much become one of that class of celebs who are more famous for simply being famous than for anything they actually do in their chosen profession.
