    I was at the Brooklyn show too! Kelly Ripa was there with Anderson Cooper and I had a clear view of her being wasted. She also gave that speech about how she questions the validity of marriage now (in a joking way). I also remember the huge ovation she got for "Ghosttown" that brought her to tears. One of my favorite live music moments.

    Because VHS could be recorded onto and was less expensive. People could record TV shows with their VCRs for the first time ever. And the VCRs could also play store-bought movies.
  3. Can Lourdes act? Is she even interested in working as an actor? Or working at all?

    Home video is an all-encompassing term for any media that you can watch at home. So home video can mean laserdisc, VHS, DVD, Betamax, BluRay, V2000, reel-to-reel, etc. Any at-home format at all.

    To clarify - there were two different Blond Ambition Tour home video releases. The one called 'Blond Ambition Tour Japan 90' was recorded in Yokohama and released on Laserdisc and VHS in Japan. 'Blond Ambition Tour Live!' was recorded in Nice, broadcast on HBO, released only on Laserdisc, and won a Grammy. Unofficial/bootleg DVDs of both have been made and sold. And I am obsessed with Laserdiscs lately! I bought Blond Ambition Tour Live on Laserdisc and Queen's Greatest Flix on Laserdisc recently. If you're interested in learning more about laserdiscs, a YouTube channel I follow called Technology Connections did a great series on them:

    She did a greatest hits tour in 2015-2016.

    I think the reason we have to wait so long for the release of tour videos these days is because I think there's just SO MUCH footage to get through. Great, cheap, high quality cameras are so ubiquitous now. If you look back through this thread, there are mentions of recorded dress rehearsals, recordings of the audience, Ricardo's camera, phones, other handheld cameras - there's just SO MUCH FOOTAGE to get through. In the old days, you had a film crew with a finite number of camera booked on certain dates and the footage you got was the footage you got.
  8. Does anyone have any experience using a storage system similar to this for their physical CDs: https://www.slim-disc.com ? In a nutshell, you throw out the plastic jewel case and house your CD, the inlay, and the booklet in a little, compact plastic sleeve. This would allow you to save a ton of space and put all the little sleeves in a drawer or file cabinet or something. I'm seriously considering this because transporting my entire CD collection from my hometown, where it currently resides, to my new home on the other side of the country is looking like a nightmare. Plus, I don't want to keep buying newer, bigger, more expensive CD shelves for the rest of my life. Any insights would be much appreciated!
  9. I thought "Hey You" was a full-fledged commercial single. It had an accompanying video and it's always been for sale in the iTunes store...
  10. Why is it that conspiracy theorists always insist that WE present the evidence For the claim THEY’RE making?
  11. My first thought when Madonna posted this was that she’s just another out of touch rich person with too much time on her hands. Then I read here that Dua Lipa also posted this type of thing. Then I realized Madonna’s just parroting a younger person to try to gain relevance and attention, which is very on-brand for 21st century Madonna, unfortunately. It made me cringe just as much as the first time I heard her speak “and me” in “Me Against The Music”.
  12. I don’t know, the Rebel Heart Tour felt like a greatest hits tour to me. She played LOTS of old songs including many of the biggest hits, she recycled a lot of old looks/themes, and went to lots of cities she usually doesn’t go to.

    I think I saw that same Madame X longbox, along with a commenter pointing out that it was fake. I most often encountered CDs merchandised in those giant security devices, which allows record stores to store them like vinyl records you can flip through. The ones like this. Oh, nostalgia.
  14. No, I don't think that's necessarily the case. There are deals in which the artists owns the recordings, and certainly own the copyright to the composition. Prince recorded lots of songs during his time with Warner that he later released, or re-recorded. A lot of his Crystal Ball album was recorded during the Warner years, and it was released in 1998, at the height of his feud with them. Then you have songs like "Extraloveable" which was recorded in 1983, then re-recorded and released in 2011 & 2013. Who knows what other ones there may be. Also, one commenter mentioned Prince participating in the remastering of Purple Rain before he died, and inferring that therefore he must've approved of the expanded edition. My opinion is that he did not approve. He did approve of the remastering of the album for it's 30th anniversary in 2014, but it still hadn't been released by the time he died in 2016. My assumption is that he was squabbling with Warner that whole time about expanding the album. I imagined they wanted to add bonus tracks and he only wanted to release a remaster, and probably insisted on it being of a certain technical quality that they wouldn't support. Remember when he did that Facebook AMA and the only question he answered was about sample rates?
  15. Yeah, it is a different mix, with Madonna's vocoder vocals more prominent.
