Report: Michael Jackson Dead

Postby Art Vandelay » Thu Jun 25, 2009 5:53 pm

Apparently Michael Jackson was taken to the hospital with cardiac arrest today and TMZ is reporting he's died. I don't even know what to say. I know he really went off the deep end there for the last decade-plus, but you absolutely can't front on what he did for most of his career.

"He made Thriller, B. Thriller."

Crazy day. Our local news here has been doing tributes to Farrah Fawcett and I turned it back on just now to see they have chopper shots of the hospital Michael Jackson was taken to. Sad day if indeed the reports are true.

If true, he may be gone but his music will be remembered forever.

Man, he went fast.

I read about the heart attack just an hour ago, and boom... gone.

Rumor is that he is in a Coma, but he cannot be far from the end.
:~(

Hopefully he is remembered for Billy Jeane and not the Neverland Ranch...

Hopefully he's remembered for both. We shouldn't gloss over the bad and focus solely on the good just because somebody died. But at the same time, we should be able to separate the art from the artist and say "he turned into a crazy person, but damn he made some great music."

Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, MJ. These things happen in 3's :-/

Damn man this sucks. Say what you will about him as a human being but his impact and legend as an artist is undeniable.
