That is something else, Chuck, isn't it?
 
I've actually updated the post I made with the original extended version, which brings out the touchingness of it all even more...

I know I am sooooo late with this stuff.  This is probably ancient by now, but I just happened to catch it over the weekend while I had some SNL "shorts" special tuned in for like ten minutes.  Here it is on YouTube:

HILARIOUS... and very creative and, actually, kind of a cool tune!

How about Michael Jackson, guys and gals? What a sad, sad epitaph! I don't think the guy ever did anything whack with kids, save for the difference in age, i.e., I don't believe he never molested a kid. I think he literally was trying to have the sleepovers he missed out on as a kid. Weird,... for sure! Evil weird,... NO WAY! Pathetic weird,... yes... Ironically, though, I think it was his childlike effervescence that caused him to be so beloved throughout the world. I mean... think of his on-stage, public persona as compared to say, Madonna's (filthy one). Anyway, what a talent!

 
We were all affected by the guy whether you like it or lump it... Many of us grew up on him whether we realize it or not... We all received gifts from him whether we acknowledge it or not... And, this, one of those gifts, exemplifies both his gift-giving and the story of his life... It's my choice of a tribute to the guy, in any event...

    Here's this CFLer's tribute to M.J. from off "The REAL Feed":
     
    TD tribute to Michael Jackson does not thrill CFL
    SI.com: NFL (02.07.2009 10:50)
    TORONTO (AP) -- The CFL isn't all that thrilled with Arland Bruce's tribute to Michael Jackson in the Toronto Argos win in Hamilton.

     
    Are you kidding me??? I mean... at this point I'm kind of with those who think the Michael Jackson media coverage is a bit too much.  But, in any event, who is God's name would think THIS would be appropriate???

funny how some people are suddenly MJ fans. 3 weeks ago he was still just a freak to most of those same people.  all of a sudden he is some kind of humanitarian? he admittedly slept in the same bed with  children who were not his own and we give him the benefit of the doubt....wtf?? dude was a pervert...talented, no doubt!...  pervert, no doubt!

I want to preface that in this era where outing our heroes has become our favorite pastime in America I am pretty sure this is not a hill I want to die on.  But, I have a different take on MJ's behavior and (alleged) transgressions.  I really believe that he was reliving his stolen childhood in a way that anybody who is socially well-adjusted or just within the "normal" range cannot comprehend.  I'm not going to argue this out because 1) I don't really care enough to and 2) it would take a mini dissertation (especially to be persuasive to an audience who isn't likely to even want to put in the thoughtfulness necessary to understand the argument, no less who perhaps have already convinced themselves otherwise).  But, I would simply contend that, if you look beyond the veneer of the charges and into the real circumstances of his life and what he said vis-a-vis what he did, a fuller, more "understandable" if you will (double entendre intended), picture appears.  At least, it does to me.
 
I also don't think it's a big deal that fans have come out of the woodwork upon his death here.  It is usually in death that we come to realize a person's (immanental/subtle/indirect) effects on us.  That is a shame.  I was a preteen and teen of the 80's, and I worked and lived in Korea for seven years and traveled around far-east Asia where you could see Jackson in a different light without all the Americano leeches and media vultures going about their usual seek-and-destroy missions.

Man, I gotta confess... between these songs "Hello World" and "Raymond" right now, and others in the past like "This Ain't Nothin'", this country music's got me... hooked!

I somewhat lament this as I know it would greatly disappoint my old on-line friend Kirk, a.k.a. FourTwoOh (wherever he is, I hope he is well), but it is what it is...

Steggie Steggum's Top 40 Countdown

 
#36... Well, just as you get up and start dusting yourself off after getting thrown for a loop by song #37, as there surely was somewhat of a common thread in songs #40 through #38 and you might have thought you had the old Stegger all figured out, here comes #36, which surely will add to the twisted mayhem of "Steggie Steggum's Top 40 Countdown". This is a song I swear must have been playing in the background when I was born although I don't think it had been released by the date of my birth. It is a song that REALLY gets my philosophical juices flowing and my imagination of "ALL the possibilities" going (and, evidently, my poetry skills ). Funny thing, for those of you that know my more obvious political allegiances, this song along with #40 might have you going . And, there will be more of the like during this countdown. My "bigger picture" worldview and ultimate philosophy of life is quite a bit different than my "politics of the day". We are men of the world, but we are also men of today that have to (come to) realize where we are in the evolution of mankind and have to live within that reality if we are to find any peace and happiness in "this" life, but still with an eye toward (setting good precedent and reasonable standards for) the future of the world. This is made more poignant by where I personally am in life, which I have made you guys very privy to by being pretty much an open book around here, and my ardently pursuing my Ph.D. in my (other) beloved subject matter (besides fantasy football ), Philosophy. ... ... ... ... In any event, there are not many songs that I can identify with regarding my "politics of the day", BUT there are a ton of songs I can identify with in light of the "bigger picture". This is DEFINITELY one of them...
 
http://www.ffyi.com/stegsmusic/36.htm (as should be expected, the songs can take quite a bit of time to load in the player; they are set to start AUTOMATICALLY when fully loaded).

 
I must concede to Travistotle, a.k.a. T-Rave, a.k.a. Ravenous T., a.k.a. GBRFLer Dr. (of Philosophy of Philosophy) Travis Cooper, and, alas (that was for you, bro ), strike this song, John Lennon's "Imagine", from my list and largely from my music life. Travis and I discussed this song at length after I posted this, and I rigorously defended it at that time. I defended it under the philosophical auspices that he and I share that ethics and religion are separate issues (albeit sometimes overlapping). This song is not about an ethical world as I had in mind. It is about a utopian world. Dennis Prager recently mentioned that leftism is a religion without traditional scripture, but that this song would be it. Alongside the leftist gospels of Marx (Old Testament) and Alinsky (New Testament), I would call "Imagine" a leftist Psalm. Indicative of the utopianism it promotes, the song is filled with a lot of implicit hatred, actually.
 
My recent reflections on this song have awakened me to the wisdom of those who derided rock 'n roll for its influence. Mind you, I do not agree with those who see a problem with the beat and rhythms. Rather, it is about the glibness with which rockers can sing about important topics while having a profound influence on young impressionable minds. Indeed, I cannot even enjoy a song that is infused with politics, eh-hem, leftism. While I like a song that is touching, I have somewhat oddly come, at an advancing age, mind you, to have a renewed appreciation for songs with lyrics that are just fun, almost teenage (no, I am not having a midlife crisis, quite the contrary). I would rather listen to (this just randomly came to mind), in fact, I find it liberating in this day and age to listen to "Can I Get A..." (yea, the ellipsis is like that, T. ) by Jay Z, whom I am no fan of by the way, or David Guetta, Nicki Minaj and Flo Rida's "Where Them Girls At" than this self-righteous propagandistic twaddle by Lennon. I am sorry. It is over. I just want my music to entertain me.
