GUEST POST: MADONNA ON MOORE

[Ladies and gentlemen...Madonna! Umm, I mean, Esther. But don't get confused, this is TAFKAM (the artist formerly known as Madonna), not Esther/me, the proprietress of this blog. Oh, whatever. Here's Madge:]

Greetings, my loyal fans. I encourage you all to open your hearts to Kabbalah; let it inspire you to see Fahrenheit 9/11, a film by my good friend Michael Moore (Kabbalah name: Immanuel), whose name sounds even more soothing when I inflect it with my newly-acquired clipped British accent.

Guy (Kabbalah name: Guy) and I are appalled by the government's behaviour during this cruel, cruel war. This is why we live in England, so we do not have to get involved in actually changing American foreign policy. As I critiqued during my underappreciated rap song "American Life," American society obsessed with money and status:

I got a lawyer and a manager, an agent and a chef
Three nannies, an assistant and a driver and a jet
A trainer and a butler and a bodyguard or five
A gardener and a stylist, do you think I’m satisfied


I appeal to your sense of morality and compassion. Vote for Michael Moore and against capitalism. Raise your voice and please buy my children's books and an "Esther Rocks" t-shirt for $85, proceeds above cost will benefit children. Specifically, children named Lola (Kabbalah name: Liora) and Rocco (Kabbalah name: Reuel).

May Kabbalah bless you in your spiritual voyage toward discovery of the Immanent. Vendor kiosks are located at all the major exits.

I don't think I've heard Madonna's "American Life" song, but I must say, the message is simply lost when performed by the "Material Girl" herself. It's hard to feel any pity for those afflicted with the syndrome of overabundance.

By the way, you are right that Moore's film simply advances an agenda, but I still want to see it. Grain of salt example: Moore claims that Bush spent 42% of his first 8 months in office on vacation. He doesn't mention that half those days were at Camp David, where Bush regularly hosts foreign diplomats. (The other half (approx) were on his Texas ranch, where I have no idea if he hosts anyone.)

I came across this looking for the lyrics of some materialistic rap I'd heard remixed; and in addition to finding it, I also get some wonderful belly laughs. Immanent schmimmanent, you are EMINENT.
