I’m over Arizona at 30,000 feet catching up on my writing. Delta, my new favorite airline after Jet Blue went mainstream, offers on-demand video which really helps the time pass. I’ve watched District 9, and September Issue and am now completely caught up in the Michael Jackson film This Is It. Even a small 9″ screen I’m getting the same visceral thrill and shivers that I got when I saw it in the theater.
MJ has to be the most completely talented entertainer of the last 50 years. No, not the best singer, but a complete being of entertainment. To see the passion that he brings, the complete involvement and mastery is inspiring as well as riveting. I’m getting goose bumps watching him flawlessly execute complex dance moves with an ease and facility that is astonishing.
Yes I’m a fan, but I’m biased. This guy is a complete utter professional, immersed with his whole being into his craft and art. It’s a level of involvement and dedication and focus to strive for.
Yes, the guy had issues, but how can he not. He has been in a hot house of visibility his entire life . He probably did not really know how to be a normal person
I could see an opera based on his life….just sayin’.
