  1. TB did utilize live instruments (guitar, keyboards, "Papa" strings, etc. etc.), but it wasn't as "musical" as LAP. I'd love for La Ciccone and Leonard to try working together now, to see what they could come up with.
  2. The best version of a 12-track RH album would be: 1. Living For Love 2. Devil Pray 3. Ghosttown 4. Hold Tight 5. Joan of Arc 6. Iconic 7. Heartbreak City 8. Inside Out 9. Wash All Over Me 10. Veni Vidi Vici 11. Messiah 12. Rebel Heart
  3. Per her Pocono Record interview, Olivia said her Sordid Lives character was the one she was least like.
  4. There's a statement from Olivia in the article, and then comments from loved ones, etc.: http://people.com/celebrity/olivia-newton-john-breast-cancer-totally-confident/
  5. One of Olivia's concert dates has been rescheduled to late September, so the positive outlook continues. Good.
  6. On a positive note, she will have the best treatments/options at her disposal, so we'll see what happens.
  7. Yes, jazzyjan- cancer can go straight to, as Rose Nylund would say, h-e-double-hockey-sticks. Liv On is taking on new meaning for her with this latest struggle, I'm sure.
  8. She is a strong, formidable woman- sending positive thoughts and prayers her way. I'm grateful I got to interview/write about/meet her, but so wish this wasn't happening.
  9. So, it doesn't look like they went back and put LDLHA in the place it should be? That's kinda disappointing, as it wouldn't be all that difficult to do.
  10. I can see DSS being regarded as a "Madonna movie"- her character name is in the title, and she did have a decent amount of screen time (though not as much as R. Arquette, which makes sense, as she was the one seeking Susan) - but not Vision Quest.
  11. She's been channeling 1989 with every performance of "If I Could Turn Back Time" since it was out, so not sure why that's a headline for Billboard. In the Billboard interview, she said she can't remember anything on It's a Man's World and that it's "crap"- though she still performs "Walking in Memphis," which she enjoys. Oh, Cher. She is one of my faves, but she doesn't mix things up much, if at all, with the live performances. Which, IMO, would be nice for an act known for putting on a spectacle- but, ah well.
  12. They are? Do they realize what her issue is?
  13. ^Welcome. :) Olivia had to postpone shows for the rest of the month as a result, I believe, of an issue with her back (EDIT: her sciatica). Sending positive thoughts Olivia's way, to get weal soon. In the meantime, if you never tire of reading about the one and only ONJ, here are the links to the three articles in one post. Olivia Newton-John to ‘Liv On,’ showcase iconic career in Easton Newton-John pulled ‘a Sandy’ after ‘Grease,’ reigned as soundtracks queen With ‘Grace and Gratitude,’ Olivia Newton-John wows Easton
  14. Unreleased live and backstage footage hopefully means the show is in tact (at least for what was performed on that occasion).
  15. I liked "Something"- it was out during a telling (and trying) time in life.
  16. I actually have not sat and watched the whole Xanadu- i know, . I mean, I haven't seen some of Madonna's movies, either, but given how much I adore the music and such, I will have to give Xanadu a proper viewing. It's been more than two weeks since we saw the concert and Olivia, and it's still somewhat of a high. I posted the preview articles and concert review above, so if anyone loves ONJ, I hope you enjoy them. t
  17. Geena Davis said they're working on getting Madonna to attend this year's event- good luck with that one. (though it would be a nice surprise) http://www.glamour.com/story/geena-davis-on-the-25th-anniversary-of-a-league-of-their-own
  18. Yes- that last Madonna runway was a huge letdown, overall. Hopefully this one is a lot better- and they out a "no-geisha" rule into effect.
  19. This isn't my favorite pic of myself, but it's with Olivia, so who cares, right?
  20. Skin, it was Davis' voice dubbed over older Dottie in the beginning of the movie, too. There was a feature in last Sunday's Parade, with Geena Davis on the cover and /League 25th anniversary on the cover. She said all the cast members get together for annually for the event game- but I'm sure that doesn't include Madonna.
  21. Thanks. :) Yes, "Don't Cut Me Down" is even better live. I adore "The Promise," as well.
  22. Here is my take on the Olivia show last night. Also got to meet her and take a photo (I will see about posting when it becomes available). With 'Grace and Gratitude,' Oilvia Newton-John wows Easton
  23. ^Thanks. Indeed "Deeper Than the Night" was, as it appeared on that album. I updated the secondary article to include a mention of the Golden Globe nominations for "Grease." I debated mentioning that "Grease: Live" from last fall, and just gave it a quick mention.
  24. ^Indeed. All enjoyable. When I spoke to Olivia, I asked if she would consider doing a snippet of "Livin' in Desperate Times," but she shot it down. Moreso for not pulling a surprise on the band. She's never performed the track.
  25. No problem, and thanks, jazzyjan. She is someone to be appreciated- seeing her in concert for the first time on Thursday- and I may get to meet her, so hopefully I won't hyperventilate or anything. Last night, we saw Air Supply (one of my favorite early 1980s acts- oh, hose love songs hehe) Both guys actually came out to the audience and walked around- was very cool.
