So it's my birthday today.
Yes, go ahead, I'll wait.
Ok so all I've been getting all day long are text messages and calls going "happy birthday! Oh by the way, did you know Michael Jackson is dead?".
Yes, I know. I'm on the internet for a good 15 hours a day. I'm aware. So stop it already.
Three years ago my uncle was killed in a suicide attack on my birthday. My aunt emails me this morning going "happy bday T. I'll never forget your bday because it was the day Uncle P died"
Gee thanks. Of course my birth isn't a good enough reason to remember it.
Yes, I'm a little annoyed. And I wish all the drama queens would stop with the oh woe is me, MJ is dead exclamations. Shit happens. People die.
That said though, RIP Michael Jackson. You were a strange man, but your music was awesome. I was trying to figure out my favorite song and I was like oh its gotta be Heal the World. But then I realized exactly how many of his songs I really loved. Black and White! Man in the Mirror! Beat it! The Way You Make me Feel! Will You be There!
He kinda was the soundtrack of our youth. What a legend.
