I can hear the TV broadcast in the office next door. I think I'll go over and kick the screen in.

The media is a business. It has to sell. Consumers want to know every square millimeter of Jackson's life, so that's what the media sells.

Those of us not interested in the hype are caught in the stupidity vortex.

What does that say about "Us" as a society? That's what bothers me.

Roll on thunder, shine on lightning
The days are long and the nights are frightenin'
Nothing matters anyway,
And that's the hell of it.
Winter comes and the winds blew colder
While some grew wiser, you just grew older
And you never listened anyway,
And that's the hell of it.
Good for nothing, bad in bed
Nobody likes you and you're better off dead
Goodbye, we've all come to say goodbye (goodbye)
Goodbye (goodbye)
Born defeated, died in vain
Super-destructive, you were hooked on pain
Though your music lingers on
All of us are glad you're gone
If I could live my life half as worthlessly as you
I'm convinced that I'd wind up burning too.
Love yourself as you loved no other
Be no man's fool and be no man's brother
We're all born to die alone, you know, that's the hell of it.
Life's a game where they're bound to beat you
And time's a trick it can turn to cheat you
And we only waste it anyway,
And that's the hell of it.
Good for nothing, bad in bed
Nobody liked you and you're better off dead
Goodbye, we've all come to say goodbye (goodbye)
Goodbye (goodbye)
Born defeated, died in vain
Super-destructive, you were hooked on pain
And though your music lingers on
All of us are glad you're gone

-"Hell of it". Paul Williams, 1974 (from Phantom of the Paradise)
-I was bike touring in Oregon when MJ shuffled-off; was completely baffled as to why every damn place in Portland was playing his music repeatedly when we got back (no TV, or radio on the tour...).
My worst nightmare realised (never been an MJ fan).
Once I found out: The above song began playing in my head (OVER the piped-in MJ crap).
The only REAL entertainment that his passing provided was after a "Lit and Loud" ride during Pedalpalooza in Portland:
A large group of people (in various states of inebriation) did the zombie-shuffle to "Thriller" under the Hawthorne Bridge...THAT was a laugh-riot.

What a beautiful service,....

Is it too late for me to jump on the bandwagon?

Surely this much love couldn't be misplaced?
