JACKSON'S REACTION TO THE DEATH OF JACKSON

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?

Comments:
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.
