Peace out MJ

So Michael Jackson is dead. Pretty crazy. I was sad to hear this, but not exactly surprised. I grew up totally enamored by him and his music. Like serious adolescent obsession. In fact me and my sister will still get down to some Thriller on a road trip. and we can “hehe” and “whoo” with the best of them. My sister always laughs at me because I know where all the “oww’s” and “hehe’s” and “whoo’s” are in every song, it’s a gift.

I am still in awe of the amazing talents that he had and even with the child molestation accusations and all the bizarre things that he has done over the years, more than anything, I feel bad for him. He was clearly troubled in many ways. I know the boys at imafoodblog don’t agree with me on this one, but I think Michael Jackson was awesome.

I saw this video that Serious Eats posted of MJ organizing a food fight on the set of Black or White for director John Landis. A fun way to remember the King of Pop, and check out really young Macauley Caulkin. “I’m not gonna spend my life bein a color".

RIP. :'(
