I hope I never have a mid-life crisis. Madonna, who’s always seemed like a complete media whore (obviously) is clearly having one. I mean, come on! Esther! Really? That would be like calling Jenny McCarthy “Ruth” or calling Kate Beckingsale “Agnes.” Esther? When I think of Esther, I think of Fred Sanford. Ridiculous. At least Prince changed his name to nothing and not some old-school name like…….Elmer. Sheesh.

Saw the new Jarmusch film last night here in NYC, called Coffee and Cigarettes. I was really looking forward to seeing it because it looked so interesting, but it turned out to be quite a disappointment. The movie is basically several vignettes of famous and some not-so-famous actors chatting in various locations over coffee and cigarettes. Other than a hilarious exchange between Bill Murray and the Wu-Tang Clan and another vignette between Stephen Wright and Roberto Benigni, it was a bit of a snoozer. The one with Iggy Pop and Tom Waits was also marginally good.

Song now playing: Franz Ferdinand – “Matinee”
