Today we go from last week’s Passover post of “Let My People Go,” to my bad mash-up of an Eggo commercial slogan.
My friend Peet, comic strip artist, (check out his Hey Mailman series here) posted this super cool animated LEGO piece of Michael Jackson dancing. The video was created by Annette Jung and originally posted on vimeo.
And if that is not enough MJ for you, my friend Susan sent me a link to this New Yorker article that lightly probes on the psychological matters that may have led Michael to become who he eventually ended up becoming, while speaking about a recent biography on Michael: “Untouchable: The Strange Life and Tragic Death of Michael Jackson,” by Randall Sullivan.
Though I think I heard the book does not give much new insight into Michael’s life, and that the biographer didn’t talk to too many people close to Michael, I still would like to read it because I’m always interested in how the media portrays Michael. And, as you know, I have a passion for him as the entertainment icon that he was, and am saddened for myself, and for all of those that admired this great talent, for his loss–his actual loss of life, and the life he was losing while still alive. Wow, deep. I should have written this biography.
