Remembering Michael Jackson...

I got inspired by Filter Magazine's article and decided to write down my memories. One of my earliest memories of Michael Jackson was seeing his Thriller video (the extended version) on MTV (I'm too young to have seen it when it FIRST came out on MTV) and getting so sucked into the mini movie that I just sat there and couldn't pull my eyes away from the screen until it was over.

Every time I go to Disneyland, I'm reminded of my previous tradition of watching Captain EO every time I went. It was unheard of for me to leave the park without watching it. Captain EO will always be better than Honey I Shrunk the Audience (Sorry, Rick Moranis). I remember the premiere of Black or White and the controversy that surrounded the last four minutes of the video.

Even though he had more downs than ups near the end of his life, he played a huge part in influencing music and the making of music videos. He was and always will be the King of Pop.
R.I.P. Michael.
