Do you know what happened yesterday? The Madonna: Celebration DVD dropped. Okay, so if you're not as big of a Madonna fan as I am, you probably weren't looking forward to this event as much as I was. I had it marked on my calendar: buy Madonna DVD! I didn't even wait until after work was over -- I bought it on my lunch hour and proudly displayed it to my fellow interns upon my return.

And surprisingly, there are some legitimately talented people behind it. Lin-Manuel Miranda, composer of recent hit In the Heights, will co-write the music, and Jeff Whitty, Tony winner for Avenue Q, will write the book.
