The Man In The Mirror

Today is Friday which is normally a day I would rejoice seeing as how I live for weekends but not this Friday though. I woke up this morning to the sad news of Michael Jackson's death.

The moment I got out of bed, wifey looked at me with this sad face and said,

'Sayang, Michael Jackson died la!'

To say I was shocked is putting it mildly. I rushed over to the PC and read the news she was pointing out to me, I was in a daze for a while. I grew up to the tunes of the man.

I danced to his music and spent countless hours perfecting his moonwalk with my cousin just so I could show off that I could pull off one MJ's dance moves.

The man was a legend. The King of Pop they called him. It's so sad to know he's no longer going to be around. But that's life. At least his music will still live on forever.

Rest in peace, MJ.

  3. I grew up listening to him and I truly was a huge fan ever since I was like 5.

    Really no mood already today. I wish I could just go back home, crawl into bed and listen to his music the entire day. :(

  22. Yesterday I felt so lost... can't believe he's really gone. When I woke up today, it slowly sunk in but I still felt heart broken. So to comfort myself, I bought a tub of ice cream and ate it in front of the tv while watching MTV pay tribute to him :(

  31. Nick, the man died but his work remains. That's what I always say.

  32. Cidao - I agree. His music will outlast us all.

  33. I like how you discolored the MJ pics so as to lessen his horrific self-bleaching of the past 20 years.

    You wouldn't have left your kids alone with this freakazoid in a thousand years, and you know it.

    Give me a break.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Anonymous - I wouldn't trust my kids with anyone mind you but I'm talking about the man's talent here, which is HUGE mind you, and not his personal life.

    We all have our quirks and 'freakazoidness' but unfortunately we're not as popular as MJ.

    Oh and by the way, it would be nice to know the real you instead of just being anonymous :D
