2009 was a banner year for celebrity deaths. And that being said, none were more ballyhooed than Michael Jackson.
Considering the nature of his relationship with the media, I suppose the circus was inevitable (the shady doctor and babies mama drama couldn't have helped matters).
Still the endless analysis and sudden posthumous fawning in which the press engaged was nauseating.
With this tribute Jazzy Jeff reminds us why regardless of his personal life, Mike's contribution to music is beyond question. Culled from 4 decades in the game, this mix of almost fifty jams includes the all the obligatory highlights as well as some exclusive remixes.
Props to Jeff for giving the King of Pop a royal send off. DOWNLOAD
Here I basically just write about whatever I'm into at the moment. Mostly it's music, but also some books and a good political rant every now and then, circumstances warranting. I'll post links to audio I think is worth downloading, but basically, it's just self-indulgence in the typical fashion of web 2.0 user generated content. This is blogging after all, a bare minimum amount of narcissism is implied, is it not?
If you've taken the time to read all of this you may as well check out some of my posts. And if you've gotten something from this blog or you think my writing sucks, I'm full of shit, etc.- why not reply or contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org? I would sincerely love to hear from you, whoever you are...
