It has been a sad morning.

I found out two hours ago that Michael Jackson – aged 50 – legendary, revolutionary, incredible artist and inspiration has died.

watch from 3:30 onward – this is his first moonwalk.

MJ changed the world. He spread his message of self improvement with every second slamming pop chart-topper. He obviously struggled through his later years, but has left one of the most distinct imprints on the world. I personally grew up jumping to his pop, and I still pepper each of my playlists with several favorites.

See ya Michael, long live.


One of the stars of the movie ‘The Hangover‘ – which I saw and really enjoyed last week – is also the star of a quite alternative version of the clip for Kanye West’s ‘Cant Tell Me Nothing’.

I found it pretty entertaining to check out the video after seeing¬†Zach Galifianakis perform as the awkward and socially inept “one man wolf pack” in Hangover. Plus the sly use of the song in the film was a cheeky little reference.

I know this is old – but is a timeless.

mmmmm – I’m not in love with the album artwork. It works,¬† but there isn’t anything outstanding about it.

BUT I have been listening to the album all afternoon and so far – these things can be short lived, or slow burners so I’ll reserve my judgement, but – its a treat. Hoping they will come down and tour in the underbelly of the pacific.
