  1. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    Yeah, it’s such a pity. Somebody needs to disable that slow-down-speed-up effect on her computer next time she edits her tour. Having said that, I couldn’t help but enjoy watching the DVD. It’s such an entertaining show.
  2. Rio 2016 Olympics

    The medal table is officially ranked by number of golds, then silver etc. Sometimes countries re-order the table based on total number of medals to make themselves look better, as China seems to have done now
  3. I agree with Kim. This tour has its faults, such as the "squash court" lighting, the Casio keyboard band, and some lifeless reinventions, but I think it gets an unfair rap from fans. And yes, she sounds amazing on that live CD, and it doesn't have that soft, fake, re-tuned sound that the later tour CDs have. The opening with the yoga poses is one of the great Madonna moments in my opinion. Well, according to the choreographer, BAT was slapped together at the last minute, and look how that turned out.
  4. Sydney - 20th March. Final show [part 2]

    The deluded Disco Dolly probably thinks she'll get to work with Madonna properly if she holds out on this occasion.
  5. I don't think that man's behaviour is acceptable at all, but clearly he's not right in the head. And the fact that somebody filmed this incident and it became news tells you that it's not a common occurrence. I've lived here most of my life, and the only time I've ever seen anyone confronted on public transport for speaking a foreign language was when tourists from, let's say, a "louder" culture were making a racket on a train and someone politely told them to be quiet, so the noise level was the issue, not the fact that they weren't speaking English. It's just a case of different cultural norms. In the case of this video I think they were just unlucky to be sitting near a nutter.
  6. No excuse for racism of course, but I find Spanish tourists can be a little loud. Perhaps that's what sparked this off?
  7. I meant it more in the sense of having a more substantial live band with more live instruments, rather than remixing.
  8. Yes, it made sense when he pointed to that device in the video and said they sampled the original multi-tracks. I don't think they even did that as recently as Sticky & Sweet, as I seem to recall a video interview with the keyboard player for that tour, who said that Madonna asked for it to sound exactly like the album version, so he had to look for samples that sounded similar to the originals. I remember that interview with Madonna during the Girlie Show in which she said how much she loved her live band and the way they had rearranged the songs, and how it would be boring just to recreate the recorded versions. Personally, I wish she'd go back to that.
  9. It takes a lot of technology and equipment to make it sound like someone just stuck the CD on For me, the band, with its stale, flat sound, is one of the few weak points of this tour. But it's still very interesting to get a look behind the scenes.
  10. Bangkok - February 9

    Lol yes it's quite noticeable. But good if it means a more comfortable vocal.
  11. I thought you were talking about Freedom '94.
  12. The band

    The lack of bass player is something I noticed too. I think the band just embellishes the backing tapes. Unapologetic Bitch, for example, just sounds like someone stuck the CD on. Are the drums real drums or just those electronic pads that are popular nowadays?
  13. I wonder if it's actually like a folder with all the album tracklistings in it?
  14. Let us not forget Who owns the throne? [Max:] You do mommy! I think she was trying to recreate the "Who's the queen, Rocco?" moment from IGTTYAS. She was clearly obsessed with Madonna.
