fripodding special edition: a tribute to michael jackson


As the whole world already knows, yesterday was indeed a tragic day, for we lost not one, but two great stars.

I can’t say I was a big fan of Farrah Fawcett, but any life lost is certainly devastating. Not just a beautiful Angel on TV, but in real life too. My prayers go out to her family and friends.

As for Michael Jackson, what can I say that millions haven’t said already? The nice thing about stars, even after they die, their light continues to shine for many generations. Perhaps another day I will go into greater detail of what one of the greatest legends of my generation has meant to me. In the meantime, I’ll let his music speak for itself.

From Moonwalker, I’d post the entire movie, but who’s got the time to watch it? I would recommend any fan buy it, but who has a VCR anymore? And the DVD isn’t quite availible here (in USA) …yet.

Someone made an awesome dance montage video.

This is the actual montage music video for “Who Is It.”

Probably, possibly one of my favorite music videos. Like movies, it’s hard to pick just one. But for the moment… (For the record, watch the Moonwalker version, it’s so much better, this just has a fitting final shot.)

Back to Moonwalker, which is actually the very beginning of the movie. It starts with an extended version of Man in the Mirror which is one of my top favorite songs and I think it embodies what he was all about as a humanitarian. I have blogged about this song before back in November with the theme of change. Take a look, you’ll see I’m still the same fan, just in mourning. I also think the ending song and scene is poetic in it’s own right, and for now, it’s one of the best ways I can think of to end this tribute.

We love you Michael.
(I can hear him saying “I love you more!”)
Rest in peace.

    Welcome back! Is this season 2 now? Sterling and Kortney return from hiatus but there's not enough time to talk about all the things that happened in the last few months or years since the last episode. Some of those things they don't have enough time to talk about include HBO Max, Disney+, Heaven's Gate, Tenet, Letter Kenny, and more. Sterlin […]

    Sterling invites Vilissa, Janelle, Neysha, and Nick to join him and Kortney for a special live episode discussing the regular nonsense such as appearing (and later disappearing) mirror monoliths in the desert. Sterling also asks a series of questions which yields a favorite response of "cotton balls of sheep."  This is also the last episode of 2020 […]

    What is Dreamstorm? We couldn't tell you but it's fascinating and you need to experience what we know of it (watch the YouTube clip here) and if it can help manifest the gingerbread Oreos that Sterling craves. Also, Sterling learns a startling fact about Kortney! Sterling also freaks Kortney out with the rules of the Elevator Game which may or may […]
