"Michael Jackson is a 5 asshole having, pterodactyl marrying, werewolf raping, baby dangler."
- Patton Oswalt
Every time someone near my age dies I start thinking about my own mortality. Michael Jackson was only a year younger than me, but his dying didn't make me think much. He was like a piece of fine china - a little to fragile to be human.
I always wanted the job of the guy who used to walk behind him holding the umbrella. If you can't go outdoors without an umbrella over your head, you're way too dainty. Although, I guess he only had one or two layers of skin left, so it stands to reason. The odd juxtaposition of always wearing a germ mask and having a pet chimpanzee is too bizarre to explain.
Now, as death often does, the bizarre stories of his life will come to light. What's the over/under for the number of posthumous biographies? I say ten before the end of the year. First though, the autopsy should be very interesting.
They think it means that more good films will be included, but I think it means that it's more likely that a great film will lose out due to a split vote. Why do people always think that more equals better? I suppose this means that the telecast will be six hours instead of the regular four.
