Michael died on Thursday. It's now Saturday, and my two most frequented television channels - MSNBC and VH1 Classic - are both still in round the clock MJ programming mode. I can only watch the Thriller video so many times. My interest in this event waned about mid-day on Friday. So what's my recourse?

My extensive Rock DVD collection has been my refuge. Last night I watched my 'Old Grey Whistle Test' DVD, and this morning I slapped in AC/DC's 'Family Jewels', a collection of their videos from 1976 through 19991.

Later I'll probably watch 'Kissology Volume 1', and maybe 'The History of Iron Maiden Part 1: The Early Years', and there's always 'Running Down a Dream', the four hour Tom Petty movie.

I accept the fact that Michael Jackson was an entertainer of unparalleled talent and acclaim, but c'mon people, can we move on now?

Michael Jackson died? Why hasn't there been any reporting on this???

I will freely admit I never even remotely understood what got everybody so excited about Michael Jackson (at least after the Jackson 5 cartoon went off the air in the mid-1970s). His singing style was, to my ears, whiny and annoying and you could never understand the words he was singing or what he was singing about.

With all due respect, I think he has to be one of the most overrated talents of the last 30 years.
