R.I.P. Michael Jackson

I was following along on Twitter as the news broke this afternoon, and I’ve had a lot of thoughts the rest of the day about Mike’s passing.  Ultimately, it’s a sad, sad story, but I hope people will remember him by separating the music from the person.  It’s clear that MJ was severely troubled and was probably mentally ill his entire life.  Even with all the craziness, he managed to release timeless music that will always evoke special feelings for all of us.

For this post, I decide to toss up the short film, Captain Eo, that Mike did for Disneyland in 1986.  I remember going to see it with my dad and between the movie, the music, and the 3-D glasses, there was nothing cooler at the time.  I rocked that Eo shirt for so long hahaha.  If you’ve never seen it, there’s no way it will mean as much to you now, but if you do remember seeing it in your youth, you know.

R.I.P. to the most famous person in the entire world.  It’s not often that you say that.  His music will live forever.
