my childhood died today.
for all my love of Iggy Pop and Kurt Cobain, it was Michael Jackson that was my first true love. THRILLER was my first record and i listened to it constantly. whenever MJ's videos would come on MTV i would get up and act them out in my living room and entertain my parents. i was even the werewolf Michael turns into in the "Thriller" video for Halloween when i was 6. he may have been a kiddie touching freak show with bad plastic surgery and a kid named Blanket...but goddamn it he was still awesome when i was a little boy.
it's too bad he and Paul never got a chance to patch things up.
