I just watched ten seconds of the Michael Jackson Memorial Tribute Battle Of The Musical Stars Concert. It was eight seconds too many.
I think I'll pay tribute to the self-proclaimed King of Pop by dangling a baby over a balcony.
Back in December of 1983, the owner of the Comedy Factory Outlet in Philadelphia hosted a toy giveaway party for a group of underprivileged African-American kids. One of the (African-American) comics thought it would be a good idea to play the Thriller video on the club's large video screen.
It wasn't a good idea. In fact, it was a really bad idea.
The kids cried and cried and cried. Afterwards, we laughed and laughed and laughed.
All those kids would be in their early 30's by now. I wonder if they're mourning Michael? Or are they just thinking about the day when Thriller ruined Christmas.
Here's a great video called Origins of The Moonwalk. Proves that Michael Jackson was not as original as some might believe.
