Tribute

I am saddened by the loss of Michael Jackson. He was an amazing talent and a wounded soul. I only hope he found peace before he died.

I am annoyed that people are focusing on the drama... I mean, yeah, it's interesting and all, but we often remember very bad characters for their wonderful works of art... Andy Warhol wasn't such a great guy but we all like his art!

My favorite story about Michael Jackson revolves around some free stickers I received in a box of Cheerios when I was very little. One of them looked like the photo above. I put them on my wooden bed frame and got in soooo much trouble! But I thought they were so cool and that Michael Jackson was the coolest person on the planet and having those stickers on my bed was well worth the spanking!!!

My prayers are with the Jackson family... they've been through enough and I hope their hardships in future will be fewer and farther between... I will also continue my efforts in learning to really moonwalk in honor of the King of Pop until I get it right, but after years of practice, I still suck!

xoxo,
Pink Julep!

  3. I'm sad about his passing as well. It seems that for so many of us, he was a huge part of our childhood and that's what makes it so upsetting. I can remember doing chores with my sisters every Saturday and we'd pull out our mom's Thriller album and go nuts. He'll definitely be missed.

  4. The very first concert I ever attended was to see the Jackson 5 in Columbia, SC. I was a fan of the Jacksons then and have been since. I am truly saddened over the loss of such a talented person. If you have never seen it...check out the Michael Jackson video "You Are Not Alone," live from a concert in Munich. This song is one of my favorites and the video is awesome!
