Crazy Sexy Diet book blew my mind with its positivity, humor and guts. I have decided that, because last year sucked donkey balls and I've had a hard time getting steady since, that I will once again do the 21-Day Crazy Sexy Cleanse to challenge myself to re-focus. So, starting tomorrow I will eat a raw vegan diet and will give up sugar, wheat, dairy, meat, caffeine and ALCOHOL!! Yes, my beloved martinis will be absent from my life for a minimum of 21 days. They are going to miss me so much!!! The last time I had this adventure (which you can go back and follow by clicking on the 'Crazy Sexy Diet' tag at the bottom of this post or typing 'cleanse' in the search bar ) I came out the other side feeling energetic, light, happy 15 pounds lighter in three weeks without ever being hungry!! It's true! You can read all about it. I do not have an expectation that everything will go exactly the same, but I am excited to get into it again. So starting tomorrow morning, look out world, Wendell is juicing it up!! That sounds gross, but it makes sense for this cleanse. Follow along each day for my Cleanse Daily Diary and I'll bring you along with me. Let's get raw!! That sound bad too, but it makes sense for the cleanse. Oh, and here is my theme song for the next 21 days, Vegetables by The Beach Boys.

"I was just trying to use "trans" as this kind of umbrella term meaning anyone in the gender spectrum. It was definitely not about specifically a transwoman. It's really about a little boy who wants to play with his inner girl. He could be a future drag queen or a future transwoman, or it could be about a girl who feels betrayed by the mirror....The B-52s have spent our whole career fighting for rights of people who feel different or LGBT, the whole gay community, you know."
Anyway, that's not what this post is about. This post is about the incredible work that Kate has finally, in the sixth decade of her career, putting out for those of us who have been waiting all these years. The sensational ballads Crush Me With Your Love (the title of which Kate's partner Monica came up with) and Pulls You Under show a side of Kate we have never been able to see with The B-52's, and she doesn't disappoint with the adorably jaunty title track or the "we're all special" anthem Throw Down The Roses. I would say, without a doubt, Guitars and Microphones is well worth the wait. Check out Bring Your Arms and Mr. Sister below.
WOOHOO!!! Wanna take a peek at some man-cheek? Here's your chance. Madonna just can't help herself. She HAS to give us what we want. Madge's second single from her last album, MDNA, was grossly underappreciated but that didn't stop her from releasing one of her most glamorous, sexy videos in years with Girl Gone Wild. The electo-pop track's clip was directed by fashion photogs Mert and Marcus and features a bevy of studly men worshiping at the feet of the Queen. Madonna's looks amazing (obviously) and works it in some very high heels. What better way to get your ass moving on a freezing Friday than by looking at some ass. Am I right, ladies? Here is the excellent Girl Gone Wild. AND don't forget, Madonna's new album, Rebel Heart, comes out March 10th!!!!

Because it's freezing balls in NYC, I thought a nice, warm, sun-soaked Madonna video would be appropriate for today. Madonna's third single from her Like a Prayer album was quite a gem. Cherish is a tribute to those sweet sounding girl groups from the 60s, much like the song True Blue before it. The song was released August 1, 1989, eventually peaking at #2 on the Hot 100 and becoming Madonna's 16th consecutive top 5 single, 17th top 10. Definitely one of Madonna's sweeter songs, Cherish is all about love, comparing the lovers in the song to Romeo and Juliet, but better! The video is in simple black and white, shot on the beach by famed photographer Herb Ritts. Madonna is joined by a bevy of hot, hunky mermen, including her boyfriend at the time Tony Ward (hot hot hot. see here). The song stands the test of time and is as fun to listen and sing along to as it was in 1989. Enjoy Cherish by Madonna.
