Yesterday, Michael Jackson died.

I was at my parents’ house;
My dad called from work to tell me about it.
I said “Wow, that’s so sad”,
And went back to working on my current project.
However, my mom came home upset,
And the rest of my evening plunged into the tragedy.

Most of the publicity has been reverent.
Celebrating his life and mourning is his death.
Recounting his many achievements and contributions to the world.
He was truly original; truly talented; truly beloved.

However, there are disgusting individuals that feed off the misery and faults of celebrities. Even just hours after they’ve passed away. Some do it for free, and others do it for monetary gain. I don’t know which is more disturbing.

Being anti-news, the only Michael Jackson information I had to go on were pathetic comedians and depraved animation.

Among other things,
I learned Michael Jackson provided DNA samples in the child molestation trial. And proved his case so well the buzzards couldn’t even file a civil suit. Previous allegations ended in settlement because lawyer fees would have exceeded the settlement (as they did in the case that went to trial).

Michael Jackson the star. Michael Jackson the icon. Michael Jackson the joke. No one seems to acknowledge him as a person; a human being.
I just hope he is somewhere at peace; happy.

I just needed to get that last blog off the front page.
And I will pass on sharing my other daunting experience.
Entries like that always make me feel kind of vulnerable.

Anyway,
I asked for topics to type about two entries ago.
So here goes…

# something debatable like abortions or drugs or tattoos
- Okay, I pick tattoos. They don’t bother me. Mark up your skin any way you like.

# how you feel about certain issues on the news
- I don’t watch the news.

# how about the amount of job’s lost in the US or reality television
- I don’t watch much reality television anymore. I have heard of people losing their jobs. But, I don’t know anyone that actually has. Apparently the number of long-term unemployed is 2.9 million as of this February; which makes me very grateful to have my sucky job.

# have any friend issues
- Yes, I do… I really, really do.

# exactly what you do at college, and why everyone always says it’s boring
- People do different things in college… What do I do? I go to class and occasionally do homework. I used to hit up the parties/clubs, but I got tired of that fast. Organizations are out as I want to decrease (not increase) my obligations. I wouldn’t say college is boring. I just think most people are over formal education after being subjected to it for 14 to 15 years straight.

# music blog, fashion blog
- Fashion… You mean Freddy Krueger sweaters, lumber jack shirts, and skinny jeans? Eck! Music… Womanizer!

# knowing the difference between a friend and an acquaintance
- Friends are people you can truly be yourself around, and they come through for you whenever they can. An acquaintance is just someone you know, and don’t mind hanging out with.

# fun facts about yourself
- Fun facts… Um, I like to do 1980s jazzercise.

# something that you wish could happen
- I wish everyone really had a conscience that punished them when they did something wrong. But, what is wrong? I wish I had objective definitions of right and wrong. Oh and, of course, I wish I had a billion dollars.

# things that were interesting to you and not to the average human being
- Purchasing loads of domain names.

# something funny that happened when you were younger
- lol… I am going back to bed now.
