what can i say?


what can't i? 

MY madonna complex started as soon as she did. it was instant. it was all consuming. it was permanent. it was everything. 
evidence of this statement can be found on the bttm pg/top r. gluesticked there is a b&w clipping of a then 17 or 18 yr old boy (me) from the then "like a fanzine" madonna fan club magazine (now "icon") & a b&w photo of my then teenage bedroom (now gone) wall. 
4 some1 (me) who starts off saying, "what can i say?" i said a lot (hints of my future blogging skills 2 come). it must be from about 1990/91ish? we're up to "justify my love" but still referencing dick tracy. so somewhere right in there & i'm pretty sure it was published in the 2nd issue they put out. not sure on either. 
but i DO i remember being SO stoked 2 see it printed & thinking maybe SHE saw it. maybe she did. who knows. who cares. 4 me, it's never been whether or not i matter 2 her, & i know i as 1 of her fans do matter 2 her but who am I? it's impossible 4 her 2 know all or even any of us. it's never been about that 4 me. it's always been about how much she matters 2 me. that has always been enough.
it is never fades. it never lets me down. it's never based on sales or popularity & it can never be taken away. 
STILL now, @ 40 it is instant. it is all consuming. it is permanent. is IS everything. 

THEN:
Love,

NOW:

She started it all!


THE STARTER.
THE FINISHER.

she (& i think we all know who i mean by "she") is so embedded in2 our, not only pop culture but culture as a whole that it's easy 2 4get the original impact she had & continues 2 have now.  maybe not 4get but take 4 granted. this bullshit idea of "homage" has gone in2 down right stealing (copy-cat fingerprints all over the place). hey, beg-borrow-& steal all u want girls but just like ur book reports in grade school, give credit 2 the source u got it from. & when in doubt just remember 1 simple fact:

MADONNA DID IT ALL 1ST.
