Rest In Peace

Wow, Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson in one day.

Farrah was a part of my childhood, and I liked her as much as I liked any superstar of the era. I was told that I had Farrah Fawcett hair, but I never saw it.

Michael... what can you say about him? I think nowadays my favorite piece of his work is The Wiz. The "You Can't Win" song is so soulful and angry, and yet still very much pop. And Michael delivered it perfectly. His strangeness later on didn't detract from his earlier work for me, but it did make me shy away from talking about him.

Rest in Peace.
