I came across this video on youtube yesterday, while researching for weddings. This made me laugh. J would never agree to something like this. But this made me laugh, and I have that blasted MJ song stuck in my head
Anyway, watching this video brought up memories of my childhood and how all my cousins and me included thought MJ was the coolest ever. This is a rather grim story, but when I was about 8 or 9 , one of my great uncles passed away. Since we were too young, we were given a room to ourselves while the funeral was being held. Since we were young and bored and didn’t really understand what was going on, we played some MJ tunes and danced around. Thinking about it now makes me feel bad that we were so disrespectful but I didnt’ know any better then.
Also, I think I just have a fascination with Michael Jackson, and I know most people my age do too. I know watching Brittney go wacko is what is captivating the nation at the moment, but somehow she still doesn’t have the same morbid curiouosity as MJ does for me.

I came across your blog, decided to take a peek, and was rewarded with a great video. I LOVED it. It provided just the right amount of levity for a hot (make that sweltering) summer afternoon in SC.
By the way, I wouldn’t beat myself up too much about that funeral afternoon. At your age, you really didn’t have a firm concept of what death really was. Something I’ve found interesting is that many people want there to be a “celebration of life” after they’ve left their physical bodies behind (euphemism). In fact, the more I think about it, it bothers me to think of my husband and children crying on and on and on and grieving so much that they can’t get on with their lives. I hope they’ll be happy thinking of the memories and that they’ll become even more determined to live their lives to the absolute max.
Thanks. yeah, i feel the same way, i want people to reflect on all the happy things and times they spent with me and have a good time and not cry.
