the Material Matron

so grace and i were in Target last evening picking up a few things and, happening to be near the music section, i noticed a prominent display touting Madonna's latest CD.

the title? "Hard Candy"

now i know she and/or the record execs were going for a naughty/provocative imagery kind of thing there but given the fact that she's been rocking out since the 1980s i think there's also an inevitable and unintended second set of images in that title, that of the bowls on the end tables at grandparents' houses with that striped hard fruit candy all stuck together in one big mass. or maybe a nice collection of butterscotches; she could be the new pitchman for Werthers' Originals
