This week’s meme is “Gone But Not Forgotten” and like him or not I immediately thought about Michael Jackson. Aside from the numerous points we could discuss regarding his choices and where our money goes for those we support when buying their products, I will always remember myself as a kid seeing Thriller for the first time. It blew my mind away at the divinely inspired talent and seeing the results of more than a decade of hard work on display that looked so effortless. So while I will acknowledge the flaws I will also celebrate the joy the early work brings. Or at least I still think back to my childhood self and the time when ignorance of MJ’s numerous dysfunctions brought bliss!
Ok I admit it, “Rock With You” is one of my favorite songs of all time. Looking at the video now I realize how much I want those glitter boots! That outfit is totally in style again ya’ll. Anyway I don’t want to get too invested even though I’ve chosen these videos because the irony is hitting me on the head right now and I haven’t had any coffee. Cheers!
