Had To Improvise Today

It's anoddah Friday and I hope you're going to have - or are having - a Feel Good Friday and parlay dat into a great weekend!

I had a special blog ready to go but there seems to be some difficulty in getting it out. Well actually it's anoddah..... VLOG!

Yup. Did it again. A video blog but dis one is kinda neat considering dat...... well, I'll just keep you in suspense so dat you'll check back into WWD! and das all I'm going to say.   ;)

Since da vlog is delayed and I have nothing prepared.......

Wat's your thoughts about Michael Jackson passing away?

I'd say - even beyond his "weirdness" - he was one of da greatest entertainers - and pioneers - of all time. Most, if not all, da moves he did are still being used today in all of pop culture. His videos also inspired a new age of music videos and his performances were something to look forward to (although I've nevah seen one live). Imho, I believe he's da only entertainer to move, capture and captivate da entire world.

C'mon, who's NOT heard of Michael Jackson? Who'd evah forget songs like "Beat It" and of course, "Thriller" and not to be outdone, da infamous and still popular "moonwalk" (I still can't do dat suckah today).

I bet most of you still either have da vinyl, cassette or cd? Or at least on song on your iPod or MP3 player? :razz:

Share your thoughts if you like.

Ok.... you bettah post a comment cause it's been getting lonely hea on da blogs.   :lol:

 

And it wouldn't be a Feel Good Friday without a joke and following da theme of MLC moments I've been having recently, I guess it is true dat you get wiser with age.......

A young man shopping in a supermarket noticed a little old lady following him around. If he stopped, she stopped. Furthermore she kept staring at him.

She finally overtook him at the checkout, and she turned to him and said,
'I hope I haven't made you feel ill at ease; it's just that you look so much like my late son.'

He answered, 'That's okay.'

'I know it's silly, but if you'd call out 'Good bye, Mom' as I leave the store,
It would make me feel so happy.'

She then went through the checkout, and as she was on her way out of the store, The man called out, 'Goodbye, Mom.'

The little old lady waved, and smiled back at him.

Pleased that he had brought a little sunshine into someone's day,
He went to pay for his Groceries.

'That comes to $121.85,' said the clerk.

'How come so much. I only bought 5 items..'

The clerk replied, 'Yeah, but your Mother said You'd be paying for her things, too.'

    It's FRIDAY!!!

    I liked the joke. I gotta try that on someone one day...


  3. KAN:

    I liked MJ's "One Day in Your Life" so much that I copied it out and put it in the back of my senior yearbook. He was as brilliant as he was troubled. (I must admit I liked his old nose a lot better.)


  4. roach:

    BL,
    Michael Jackson - great talent but a weird personal life. But, in the great scheme of life, is his passing that big of a deal ?

    FGF joke -

    A woman came up behind her husband while he was enjoying his morning coffee and slapped him on the back of the head. "I found a piece of paper in your pants pocket with the name 'Marylou' written on it," she said, furiously, "You had better have an explanation." "Calm down, honey," the man replied. "Remember last week when I was at the dog track? That was the name of the dog I bet on". The next morning, his wife snuck up on him and smacked him again." What was that for?" he complained. "Your dog called last night."


  5. B:

    hahaha, roach and BL- you guys get da bestest jokes.

    MJ was indeed a great talent, his creativity very influential in the music and entertainment business. rest in peace MJ.

    It feels so weird that Michael Jackson is dead. He was so much a part of the music and dance scenes as I was growing up. I hope he is looking down, seeing all the love.

    I would think so because he contributed so much to society through da arts. Has he affected me? No, not really oddah than I like some of his songs and moves but he does get my respect for influencing da way performing arts is today - you can't say dat for many (any) entertainers today.

    FGF joke -

    As always.... :lol: Now dat's a true SOS! :lol:

    I can't take any credit.... I'm not da one who comes up with 'em, I just pass 'em along. :grin: Sorry, I deleted who sent it to me to give credit to but you should know who you are. Mahalos!

    MJ was indeed a great talent, his creativity very influential in the music and entertainment business.

    And I'm surah as we'll see in da following week, dat da media focuses on those aspects cause I'm surah all da expose stuff would be coming out at da same time.

    Funny you mention dat cause even though I didn't want to be like Mike, I wanted to move like him.


  8. tita leerz:

    MJ had great music but he was a freak! Sorry everyone but he scared me like clowns scare me! Although, hearing We Are the World this morning did, almost, move me to tears.

    side note, don't forget to stock up on toilet paper cuz if Matson strikes, you're SOL! :p

    BL and roach-

    Thanks for the jokes...sure helps to lighten things up after a somber day yesterday.

    I tend to agree with most everybody else - whatever MJ's faults may have been, you can't deny that he was a great entertainer and really did bring people from diverse backgrounds together. Even my Dad, who's more into Frank Sinatra, like some of MJ's music. And I think deep down, most everybody wanted to have those dance moves that he did.

    I had opportunities to go to his concert, but always chose not to (the reasons sound really dumb now). But I can still remember when he played Dodger Stadium for his Thriller tour. We were playing tennis at a park about 30~40 minutes away from the stadium and could hear the beat of his concert even from there. Must've put some strain on the power grid those nights of the concert.


  10. opso:

    MJ......what can i say? da buggah was talanted! a great dancer, innovative, one wicked performer and a huge pop icon.

    i still remember on da Grammy's when he performed Billy Jean and he wen buss out da moonwalk for da first time.......i think.
    and everybody was like.....WHOA! what da heck was dat! mean!

    Happy FGF everybody! :D


  11. M:

    Good Morning BL!

    MJ was a great entertainer but strange too.

    Have a great FGF everyone! :D

    A woman gets on the bus carrying her infant child. The bus driver looks at them and says "Damn, dat's One Ugly Baby". The lady immediately gets pissed. So pissed that she can't speak and quickly sits down.

    Then a man gets on the bus and sits next to the lady. He notices that she's all futless so he asks her "Are you okay?". She says she isn't because the bus driver made a cruel remark to her and she's super pissed at him. She told the man that she wants to give that rude bus driver a piece of her mind.

    The man replies "You should! He is a public servant and has no right to be rude to you. Go up to him right now and tell him what's on your mind. Here, I'll help you. Let me hold your monkey." :lol:

    On the radio this morning, they played Michael Jackson's "Ben". A lady called the station because her co-workers had never heard that song before. MLCers know it.
    I wonder if when those co-workers hear MJ singing "I'll Be There", they think he copied Mariah Carey...


  13. Buddahbelly:

    Aloha, Keep da jokes coming. After he got weird in the 90's, I thought MJ kinda got irrelevant, but his passing made me think about how much he influenced more than one generation. I remember watching the Thriller video when it first came out and thinking how incredibly cool it was. My kids keep his songs on their Ipods.


  14. Scott:

    Yeah, it'd be different if he passed while still in his prime. Last night I watched Thriller on youtube and it had tens of millions of hits. Wonder how many now. Speaking of celebrity deaths, this reminds me that I had a friend in h.s. whose grandfather was driving the car that killed James Dean back in the 50's. His last name was Turnipseed, no kidding. I hadn't thought about that til now. When we used to drive to the coast we'd always pass that intersection where he was killed. Dead Man's Curve, they called. It was really spooky.


  15. NKHEA:

    Yup, he sure waz somtin special, no can remember any uda artist dat wen do so much....popular songs, style of singing, innovative videos, dancin....but he sua waz weird 8O

    BL; wat you wen check out da surf lately :? bradda Panic's stay goin off 8O ;)

    NKHEA....no can wait to surf tomorrow

    If they do.... unreal right now in dis tough economy. I hope things get worked out but trust and believe dat da 808 will be hurting if they do. :sad:

  17. roach:

    Wow laulau, slow today, yeah ? K den, hea anaddah joke la dat :

    A little girl was out with her Grandmother when they came across a couple of dogs mating on the sidewalk.

    "What are they doing, Grandma?" asked the little girl.

    The grandmother was embarrassed, so she said, "The dog on top has hurt his paw, and the one underneath is carrying him to the doctor."

    "They're just like people, aren't they Grandma?" said the little one.

    "How do you mean?" asked the Grandma.

    "Offer someone a helping hand," said the little girl, "and they screw you every time!"

    Have a nice weekend everybody !

    Howzit peeps!

    Kinda hard to have a true FGF after yesterday's news about Farrah and MJ. :(

    I know MJ is considered "off" by most people's standards. No sane person would dangle a baby off a balcony!

    But if you look at how he and other mega-celebrities have to live their lives, it's no wonder they go mento. Followed by the paparazzi and crazed fans 24/7/365? Brah, no can. That's why some of them go off. Look Britney and Lindsey Lohan -- same thing. Mento. :?

    We lost a true musical genius when we lost MJ.

    Hm, I was looking through my iTunes library, and you know how many MJ songs I have?

    none! :oops:

    20,000 songs, and no MJ! ha ha! WWD! :razz:


  19. snow:

    when i first hear that MJ had died, i thought it was a hoax. but then i remembered that i had heard he might not start his tour because he was already too sick (then i wondered why they sold tickets for his tour in the first place). but, we've lost a musical genius and a great entertainer. i loved him in the jackson five - he was so cute, i had a little girl crush on him! - and when he first went solo. in his later years, he was so odd, that it made me a little sad. i wondered what he went through as a kid or what went through his mind to make him do the things he did. i hope he finds peace now.


  20. Kristen:

    Though I was never really a big MJ fan, I found myself so sad today about it. Just watching all the reports and listening to the music and even watching old interviews of him.. I really think he was misunderstood and so very tragic and hurt. So sad for his children and family.
