An interesting Xbox 360 idea featuring Madonna as an example, apparently died…

Back in 2006, Lumines Live was going to mix the wonderful horizontally-oriented Tetris-style game Lumines with the idea of re-inventing music videos.

Microsoft and development studio Q Entertainment let us play Lumines with a video of Madonna’s song Sorry integrated into the background.

The game was released with the promise that other MTV-style music videos would get the Lumines Live treatment.

Here is a list of the MTV-style music videos that actually got that Lumines Live treatment: 1) Madonna’s Sorry. Short list!

Madonna has received an official warning from council officers after staff at her London home upset neighbours by staging a noisy party.

Nearby residents complained as loud music and singing ruined what should have been a peaceful Sunday afternoon near the Queen of Pop’s Marylebone property.

But it would appear that Madonna was not to blame. While employees of the Material Girl were getting into the groove in London, the singer herself was out of the country.

To Joe Henry, the past is what you make it.

“I’m one of the people that happen to believe the past is alive,” explains the Grammy-winning producer and performer. “There’s a great quote from John Cage: The past doesn’t influence me; I influence the past. Every time you put on an old record, it sounds a little different, depending on where you are in your life. It’s not just laying there like a static thing. You’re casting a new context on it.”

Joe Henry has produced a series of acclaimed albums but he has also collaborated with his wife’s sister, Madonna.

When asked what about producing an album for Madonna? He answers…

Don’t think we haven’t talked about it. When she’s ready to make that shift, it’s easily done. I think it’s just a matter of her getting to the point creatively where she is completely at peace with swimming in different water. I believe we’ll get there. And I’ll be terribly excited about it when it happens.
