  1. Janet Jackson thread

    My review/commentary for the State of the World Tour is done, and posted online. It was another labor of love, so hope the "Rhythm Nation" enjoys it. : For those who are not part of the aforementioned and you happen to check it out, all I ask is that you respect my work. Feel free to comment and discuss in this forum. Thanks. http://www.poconorecord.com/entertainmentlife/20171118/janet-jackson-schools-fans-on-state-of-world-more
  2. Thanks- looks as glorious as she did at the 1995 AMAS. Very classic Madonna.
  3. Janet Jackson thread

    Just got back from Bethlehem, seeing my very first live Damita concert in my nearly 30 years of fandom. She promised, she'd be worth the wait- and she was right. An evening full of pure bliss and joy. AllI I can say for the moment. Well, that, and I. Love. This. Woman. Thank you and good night, Ms. Jackson.
  4. It was a fine performance. (spotlight, where is that gif from?)
  5. Well, I think it's the Cleveland Plain Dealer, which is a major publication for the city. Madonna's pop culture influence/impact certainly is unrivaled among females and, artists, period. But, some other' music and musical influence have higher regard than M's (who also has high regard, musically). Just something to remember.
  6. http://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/index.ssf/2017/11/rock_roll_hall_of_fame_a_defin.html This is out of 209 performer inductees; not bad. 18. Madonna You could make the case Madonna is the most influential female artist of all time. Her creativity and ambition reinvented pop music for future performers of both genders. Madonna was also one of the key figures (along with Michael Jackson) in the MTV generation that would make visual storytelling nearly as important as the music it celebrated.
  7. Janet Jackson thread

    Not sure I get the animosity toward Damita Jo by some Madonna fans, but to each his own. I mean, Madonna is Madonna, and no one can touch what she's done- but Janet has done some great things, as well, and has had some strong music throughout her career. if it's related to comments she made back in the day, that was a long time ago- why not leave it in the past? Or does it have to do with mega-Janet fans with an attitude? There are ridiculous hardcore fans of all artists, as we know. Either way, it's hardly worth the trouble. I will enjoy seeing DJ near my neck of the woods this Saturday.
  8. Great article- and probably true about the Beyonce comparison (though Beyonce isn't as young as some of today's hottest pop tarts). Erotica isn't my favorite M album, but I can't imagine her career without it.
  9. Janet Jackson thread

    Well, continuing this year's tradition of seeing some of my favorite females for the first time, I will be seeing Damita Jo in Bethlehem, Pa., on Nov. 11. Ticketmaster released a couple of regular seats today (not verified resale) and my other half and I got seventh row. Our seats are a handful of seats apart, but that's "Aright" with me.
  10. How a single performed when it was first out and how it's fared in the years after, via airplay, are two different things. WTG doesn't get near the same level of recurrent play as TIC classics (and some that didn't appear on the album- like 'Dress You Up").
  11. Olivia has been back to performing, and this month, she has numerous "Live On" dates with Amy Sky and Beth Nielsen Chapman. My Olivia articles trilogy, by the way, now appears on her official site, so that's pretty darn sweet. :
  12. It was a pretty tremendous and exciting time to be a fan- no matter that the material didn't perform as well as what came before it. Her legacy was pretty sealed up to that point, but this all helped put her at another level from the others. Such a CULTURALLY ENRICHING era. Madonna and The Rest.
  13. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    OK, so we went through the scene setups/modes and the Tears excerpt didn't have all those little dots/pixels amidst the graininess in a couple of them, So all is not lost. One of the modes even added a sepia quality to the picture. Still don't get why the concert would look fine but the Tears feature would have all those little outs/pixels, in any mode.
  14. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    So, others with the Blu-ray also have a grainy Tears. Why in the world would the Blu-ray bonus feature be grainy and not the main show? I take it that the posted Tears excerpt was taken from the DVD?
  15. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    ^Indeed. And for the strings and sounds of the track to be on the home video release, and just her vocals missing- it's pretty bizarre (for those, and reasons previously noted). OK- I just checked the full "Tears" excerpt that was posted online, and it doesn't look grainy like mine does. Does anyone else's copy look very grainy vs. this?
