Take a number for that one, Maddie. I don't think anyone thought Michael would make it through 50 shows.

yeah, at the time it sounded so crazy!

seeing those last shots of him rehearsing They Dont Care, he does look kinda weakish, but yet, still makin strong dance moves.

to be honest thou, I never checked to see if he would have had the dates stretched out.

Al Sharpton has requested that a US stamp be printed in memory of Michael.

I still feel weirdly busted up about MJ. Didn't think about him for years and now that he's gone, I keep getting waves of sadness.

City councilwoman would 'love it' if Jackson family helped pay memorial costs

8:51 AM | July 6, 2009

Los Angeles City Councilwoman Jan Perry said she was concerned about the cost involved in Tuesday's huge Michael Jackson memorial and would "love it" if the Jackson family helped pay some of those bills.

I know, right? It's very weird. As much as I feel the media has gone way past the point of "overkill," (CNN, I'm looking at you) there's no way I'm not going to watch the coverage of the memorial tomorrow.

And despite my weird feelings about it and my annoyance at the talking heads on my TV, I still am really enjoying the hell out of my Essential MJ CDs. I was blasting them and jamming in my car on the way to Spokane on Saturday. Great way to start the trip.

I still feel weirdly busted up about (insert name here).


you realize this could be anyone, that crokes

I feel the same I did before he died


I remember people saying they felt more patriotic after 911

I don't get it.

I guess they were W's enablers.

Yes, but this is a thread about Michael Jackson. This is where we're talking about Michael Jackson and, you know, how we're all feeling about his death.

I guess it is a sense of community

your cd, will not evaporate anytime soon,


I will be listening to some of my Rolling Stones recordings, truly great stuff,

will they be any sweeter when Jagger is dead?

Maybe. Maybe not for you, but for someone else who'd maybe gotten tired of their songs years ago, or hadn't really gotten into their music when he was alive, maybe they will be sweeter.

This should come as a surprise to absolutely no one, but music affects people differently, and sometimes events - maybe a random thing that happens to you, maybe someone's death - will cause them to hear the music differently, appreciate the music more, or maybe even less.

Or maybe when Jagger dies, you'll just feel smug that you appreciated his music all along, not like these johnny-come-latelies who just apparently discovered their feelings about the music when he died.

Does it matter?

The Stones were one of my first favorite bands. Let It Bleed was one of the first CDs I actually went out and purchased with my own money. I think I was 13. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that when Jagger dies, I will go on a Stones listening binge and it will bring back all those memories and, yes, the music will be sweeter. To me.

Just like how it's felt sweet to hear Billie Jean and Man In The Mirror being blasted out of every bar jukebox for the last week or so. Anyways...

That ghost video clip that BVS posted scared the crap out of me.
