I really fucking hate this song:
It sounds like a 7 year old kid with a stuffed nose found his parents mic. Plus, it's a song about freaking fireflies. Some really deep quotes:
"'Cause I'd get a thousand hugs from ten thousand lightning bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance"
"To ten million fireflies
I'm weird 'cause I hate goodbyes
I got misty eyes as they said farewell"
"A sock hop beneath my bed"
I also really fucking hate this video.

-My Zogsports touch football team scored a win this weekend. First half I caught a 2-point conversion. Second half, due to a couple of people having to leave early, I took over as QB and threw for a TD and ran for a TD. Also threw a late game pick (I was confused about the score).
-Made a bet with a colleague at work about Michael Crabtree's catches this weekend. Line was 3.5. I went over. Crabtree got 5 catches... and I got 5 dollars.
-My fantasy team won it's 5th game in a row. After starting 0-2 I am now 5-2 and in sole possession of 3rd place in my (12 team) league. I have basically won off of waiver wire pickups (Miles Austin, Hakeem Nicks, Austin Collie).
-YANKEES! 6 long years have passes since we have last won the pennant. I am ecstatic about our current team.

"The context is for years I've been asked about a 'Seinfeld' reunion -- as has Jerry and the other cast members, I would say, 'No, there's no reunion, we would never do that, it's a lame idea' ... but it might be really funny to do that on 'Curb' ... and I kept thinking of how we could pull this off, and Jerry was game ... so we're doing a 'Seinfeld' reunion show. ... We'll see the read-through, parts of rehearsals, the show being filmed ... you won't see the entire [mock 'Seinfeld' episode] ... you'll get an idea of what happened 11 years later [for the characters].".. "It was like getting on a bicycle," David said of writing "Seinfeld" dialog again. "Coming up with the right ideas about what they'd be doing 11 years later ... that took some thought."

Michael suffered second and third degree burns on his head and scalp. He was rushed to the hospital, after which he was prescribed several medications. Sources report that it is this incident that kicked off Michael's addiciton to painkillers and his obsession with plastic surgery.

Also, one more thing. You can tell that MJ's skin color is obviously lighter, but I think his face is full of makeup. I personally believe he had vitiligo, the skin disorder that rids one of skin pigmentation, thus rendering the person looking white. But look at MJs hands! You can see that they are still black. So he must have had white blotches on or around his face, thus the reason for the make-up. Here are some photos of MJ with the skin blotches:

"She gotta light skinned friend look like Michael Jackson/
Gotta dark skinned friend look like Michael Jackson..." - KW
Posting about Britney and the VMAs made me think back to other memorable VMA performances, but for the right reason. In my mind, this performace in 1995 by the G.O.A.T., Michael Jackson, is the best. The. Best. Ever.
I need you to watch it now, in it's entirety. Go ahead.
OK, now back to the post. As you just saw he is amazing. Specifically though, I love how Slash comes on, does his thing, then doesn't leave. Ha! You see how pissed MJ was? And then, Slash started riffing to "Billie Jean." Amazing.
Speaking of "Billie Jean," how sick was it when Michael restarted the song by flipping the fedora back on his head. Kind of how Chris Brown did it in his tribute to him here:
And then at the end of BJ, MJ just rips it with his freestyle robot dancing. 12 years from then he is still the best.
Funny thing that Brit is criticized by lip synching. Michael lip "sunch" through his whole performance, but he was just so good. And the group dancing to "Dangerous" at the end of his VMA performance? Also amazing.
Say what you want to say about MJ being a freak or what not, but no one out there can deny that he is a musical genius. He has single-handedly shaped the RnB and Pop fields for the next generation, molding the likes of Usher, Justin and the aforementioned Chris Brown. He is like Michael Jordan but more timeless. Every new RnB or Pop singer will always be compared to Michael first. His music and dance moves will live on forever. I just wish he makes one more comeback.

This is a very very sad day. People can make jokes and laugh, but they cannot deny the true talent this man had. Simply stated: he was a genius. No one ever in the history of music was able to connect with so many different people, regardless of their race, gender, age, class, nationality, ethnicity, you name it. Because that is the true power of music and what it can do in this world. MJ showed us how united we can be over something as simple as one song. Everyone loved his music. Everyone knows his music. His music immortalizes him.
What is sad is that I don't think he was ever truly happy. Obviously I would have no way of knowing it, but common sense points to that sad fact. The way he butchered his face, the way he lightened his skin, his weird relationship with children - this made MJ a very human figure. He was a genius when it came to music, but a struggling man when it came to things outside of music. But how could he not be? We all are familiar with his life story, his launch into stardom at the age of 11. 11! He was always in the spotlight, always performing, always trying to please other people. That can mess a person up! And it sure messed him up.
But this should be a moment for remembering the positives. Part of me feels like its not right to only remember and appreciate a man at their death. But that is the reality of the situation. MJ is gone. No more new music, no more new genius. Even though he hadn't recorded in a while, all of us still held out hope that he would regain his contemporary status with something new, something amazing. Now, that will never happen.
Somehow I knew this was going to happen. He always seemed so frail, so fragile. I had this feeling that he's just not going to make it, something bad will happen. But it is still an unbelievable and devastating shock. You always looked at MJ and thought about all of the things he could've been doing to right his life. He would keep making these dumb decisions! Wasting money. Having kids over. Plastic surgery. He was a fascinating human being who was able to fixate the whole world on himself.
But man, his music... his music will live forever. Hit after hit after hit. He made pop. He revolutionized music. Everything we see now is a recycling of what he has done.
I hope he rests in peace and perhaps finds what he has always been looking for.

You know twitter does that. It sucks all the good ideas out of you (in under 140 characters only). I have ideas, but I then immediately twit them. No need for a blog post now.
It's like masturbating. A quickie. A tad shameful if you've been blogging a lot.
Nonetheless I can't use Twitter as an excuse not to blog. And neither can you.

YOU DIDN'T TAKE ME DOWN LAST NIGHT!!
WHAT THE FUCK.
You know, I used to love snow. And the potential for snow days. That was until I started working for the NYC Dept. of Ed. First off, there is always an absolute ZERO percent chance that I will have a snow day. That's because school NEVER gets called off.

Breaks are great, if utilized properly. You hate to get into that bored groove where you cannot get anything productive done and you feel like a complete waste. Thankfully, I have been able to avoid that this break. We'll see how the rest of it goes.

I never got this and it annoys me to no end. You just purchase a new electrical product, let's say an iphone or whatever else, and it's got a plastic sticky thing on it, obviously meant to be taken off after purchase. But you don't take it off. Why? Why don't you? Hey.. I know why! It's because you're retarded. Yes, you are mentally deficient for doing that and for that, I hate you.
2) People who ride Brett Favre's dick
Listen, I have a newsflash for all y'all: BRETT FAVRE SUCKS! Yes, he is not good. Not good at all. Let's think about why? Hmm...maybe it's because for every 1.5 touchdowns he throws, he throws 1 interception. Let me think, is that good? MMMM.... NO! So then why do you think he is so good?!? Why? I know why, because you're retarded. And, I hate you.
3) That the New Yorker cover does not correspond to a cover story
Man, I've caught myself so many times standing next to a magazine stand ruffling through the New Yorker and for the life of me not understanding why I can't find the cover story. WHAT THE FUCK!?!?! Very annoying. Whoever thought of that... I hate you.

I want to mention some things about tonight's episode. If you haven't watched it yet, don't read on. There will be some spoilers.
Here are my top 3 moments of the episode, followed by some stream of consciousness thoughts:
1) When Richard admonishes the young British soldier revealing him to be Charles Whitmore
- so Whitmore is an Other?!? What the FUCK?? This is why Locke couldn't shoot at him, because he can't change the future. But Whitmore did kill that other soldier dude. Maybe that was Charlotte's father? Maybe that is why she looks like she's going to die, because she is getting erased (BtotheF style?). Now this totally connects Whitmore to Ben (and Richard). Now what happened with Ben and Whitmore? Where was the falling out? Does Whitmore remember the un-Oceanic 6 (Sawyer, Juliet, Locke, Miles, Charlotte, Faraday) from his island days? Is this why he funds Faraday's research?
2) When Desmond hears from the braindead lady's sister that Whitmore funded Faraday
- damn I feel sorry for Desmond. He just cannot escape his in-law. This guy is everywhere for him. Took some balls for him to walk into his office like that. Ultimately, Whitmore cannot hate the dude. He knows he is making his daughter happy. But now they are going to LA. And didn't Ben promise to kill Penny? Uh-oh.
3) When Faraday makes the little I'm-in-love-with-Charlotte speech
- Yes, a little cheesy, but I still liked it. Especially when the Lost violin music plays. Nice to see that happening for someone other that Jack-Kate-Sawyer. Which brings me to my next point:
Honorable mention: This was the first episode in a long time that did not have Jack, Kate or Ben. A welcome respite, I think. Plus, I like Desmond episodes. And I am beginning to like this little time traveling that the un-Oceanic 6 is partaking in. Although it is a tad-far fetched, what isn't on this magical little island?
Another thing to think about: so Locke tells Richard at the end of the episode to go to his hometown 2 years from 1954 in order to prove to him that he is actually being born. My question is purely procedural, from a time traveling point of view - how does Richard do this intially if not for Locke's statement to him in 1954? What I mean is, doesn't the whole process become circular. Richard sees Locke born, Locke grows up, goes back in time, tell Richard to go see him being born, Richard sees Locke born... and so on and so forth. When does the initial seeing of Locke being born take place IF NOT for Locke traveling back to tell Richard to do this??
Oh man, so much to take back from this episode. Looking forward to next week.
