He’s dead. Discuss.
The real life pedobear is gone!
Why are people so sad about this?
I go watch a lacrosse game, come home, 6 messages on the answering machine about the same thing from different people.
I mean did you see the guy? He already looked like a zombie, it wasn’t going too be long before he kicked the bucket.

EDIT And Ed McMahon too. EDIT
Yep, he’s dead. Capitan Blubber is right though, her death was much more tragic, IMO.
sleep well, sweet prince
Indonesian prison Thriller
suddenly, i feel without gravity
Yeah, I got slammed with phone calls about this yesterday. So here are my personal feelings on the subject.
Let the fans grieve or whatever. But I was only 10 years old the first time he was accused of pedophilia. I grew up with Michael Jackson jokes as opposed to witnessing anything that would make someone a super star. My frame of reference is basically limited to seeing him as the media’s favorite freakshow.
I find a lot of people’s obsession over his death to be really hypocritical. It’s always tragic when someone dies; sure. But to see everyone suddenly switch gears from bashing the guy to paying tribute just seems so false.
I guess I’m just one of those people who thinks that because of his odd character that it’s likely that he was guilty of inappropriate behavior with children. But since he was always found not guilty, then I don’t know if what everyone said about him was true and he got away with crimes because of the power of his fame and money or if he was just the victim of worldwide attention.
Either way, I’m really disinterested in the whole thing. I know it sounds insensitive, but faking any admiration for him isn’t something I’m about to do. I suppose it might have been different had I been born earlier than 1984.
Regardless, I hope that people will just let the subject of Michael Jackson rest in peace.
Speaking of which, should we do a “Prison Thriller” entry (in his honor?)
Norsehorse89, I’m looking into the Prison Thriller video. Can’t believe I’ve never seen this. Also, I had no clue that prisons in the Philippines organize choreographed dance recitals as rehabilitation. Crazy.
Great article about it on newteevee.com from 2 years ago.
im gonna miss spending the night at his house.
his favorite game was doctor.
Everyone pays tribute to people who died… Famous or not, know them or don’t, you still honor the dead. It’s sort of a natural thing, probably.

And now Walter Cronkite has passed on.
He was such a cool guy. And great broadcaster though I was not alive to see him in his golden age.
indeed sad news, even though i haven’t been around long enough to see mr. cronkite’s heydays. WWII journalists have my respect.
