Weirder Mash-Up Than Human Minds Could Have Dreamed Up…

by

Ok, I know this is old news, but something had to be said.

Someone figured out how to mash my current favorite musicians with my favorite musician from when I was 12. Except in REAL LIFE, in front of a live audience. And the results are predictably, uh… bizarre?

that’s right, madonna appears to have had her fill of Malawi and have moved on to Eastern Europe. Is Eugene too old to be her next adoptee?

The vitriolic response by number of gogol fans on livejournal (and, i presume, other geeky web fanspaces) is simultaneously fascinating and boring. from what i read, not one person made the argument that regardless of whether they were “selling out” or serving as madonna’s “trained monkeys,” it was all, theoretically, for a good cause. perhaps that’s because the idea of these concerts is to draw viewers and then inform them, while eugene and sergey’s appearance was unannounced and therefore couldn’t really draw anybody, in theory.

anyway, i love la isla bonita, though not as much as i did when i was 13, and i love gogol, but in combination they strike me as the sort of bizarre thing that future civilizations will excavate and puzzle over.

go watch it!

P.S. Punknews.org’s review of GB’s new album comes in the form of a top ten list.

Reason #1 why it scores a 4 out of 5? “There are no guest appearances by Madonna.”

Tee hee.
