This Michael Jackson thing is destroying the final ounces of faith in humanity that I have left. I've never seen so much swarming and foaming from the mouth over something so unimportant. The things that have been gaining front page headlines just fucking baffle me.

He died, it's unfortunate. End of story.

Now I have to hear about how scalpers are selling tickets to his funeral? Is this country and the world so far beyond fucked up that no one can understand how insanely bizzare this is?

I think the thing that bothers me the most about all of this isn't so much the public interest that is occuring, but more the force feeding of media coverage that has happened. Previous things have drawn public interest, hence the massive coverage. This seems to be the opposite. It's being pumped out of every media orifice while no one I know seems to be interested at all in who will run his estate or take care of his kids or preserve his nose or kiss his white glove.

You are clearly too young to remember the death of Elvis.

I'm sick of hearing about it myself, but I've resigned myself to the realization that it's not going away any time soon.

Porn is a much better source of stimulation as compared to the media.

And yes there is definitely a lot of capitalizing on his death; Jesus didn't get this kind of attention (at least his book is a best seller)

That's kinda my point though. This crap is being pumped supercharged into every possible media hole and no one really seems to be bothered by it. Is that the state of our nation now?

It takes a special kind of personality to get bothered by the people who live(d) vicariously through a pop idol (and those who capitalize on it)..

You sure you're just not too touchy Hush? As far as the state of our nation you shouldn't try to get a pulse on the USA through the entertainment media; that's a fools errand.

And as long as I don't see Michael Jackson in my Peggle games I'm fine.

I made a thread complaining about how not enough people are bothered by the amount of media coverage surrounding MJ and you're telling me not to be bothered by it.

Seriously, wtf?

My last post was more in response to that question more or less. Be bothered by it all you want, but I don't think it's a fair way to say that our nation is really on pause for this whole thing (well maybe die hard fans who blew cash out the ass for tickets, but that's just fandome).

Here's what I think is ridiculous (If ya dig the Daily Show, I like this mockery)

It's that kinda full motion retardation that makes me wonder just what they were thinking.
