In spite of the fact that he grew up into a monster, a talented monster, Micheal was once a child with talent and an angelic voice.

I try to remember that kid, because we were almost peers. Especially "Never can say goodbye" and quite a few other catchy pop tunes he sang with the Jackson 5. Before he started changing himself into Diana Ross and before the allegations surfaced of his appetites.

What happened later, especially the plastic surgery train wreck and unsavory private life, belongs to someone else.

As much as I don't like him for what he later turned into, I still jam to "thriller".

A very talented musician and a very twisted sexual predator.

Bad taste, just got this in an email.

Q. What's the difference between Michael Jackson and Farah Fawcett?

A. Farah was a pin-up in young boys bedrooms wherea Michael used to pin-down young boys in the bedroom.

Other MJ "jokes".

Q: How does one know that it's bedtime at Never Never Land?

A: The big hand goes on the little hand.


Q: Why is Micheal Jackson on crutches?

A: He hurt himself running into a store after seeing a sign in the window that said, "Boy's Pants, Half Off".

I'm quite surprised at some of the reactions on some of the auto forums to his death.

I will remember him as an amazing entertainer. Yes, he was strange, but he was extremely talented.

I think Bob Dog nailed it. There's no arguing his talent and there's no denying his "problems". He leaves a lot for people to talk about.

what's the differences between Disney films and Michael Jackson?
--at least Disney Films still allow to touch little kids

what's the differences between Neil Armstrong and Michael Jackson?
--one walks the moon, the other one's dead!

just for the lulz, RIP MJ

He sold half the rights to Sony in 1995.

I like to use this reasoning in actual life:

When you try to look and remember a person, the first thing that comes to mind is the negative.
An individual could've been a perfect father, great husband, had a good job, nice house, took care of business, went to church, put others before himself...
Yet he just happened to have a gambling problem that everyone knew about.

8 times outta 10, a common person (outside of family) will remember the bad over the good.

R.I.P.? I don't think so. He will have a lot to answer for for his private life. I imagine a lot of stories will crawl out from under the rug as time goes on. He was a great talent but that doesn't excuse his actions behind closed doors. The media is being very kind for now.

At work today we heard about it, of course we passed around the idea that Michael had been dead for several years now, its just that the Maybelline people had finally given up!

Sorry, harsh jokes over.

A Willow Deeply Scarred,
Somebody's Broken Heart
