Five Sentence Tribute: Farrah Fawcett

When I was seven and eight years old I actually watched CHARLIE'S ANGELS.  Farrah Fawcett played Jill Munroe. I had the above poster on my wall and I knew a lot of other males who pinned it up also (I read that the poster from 1976 sold over eight million copies). THE CANNONBALL RUN (1981) was actually cooler because she was in it. I liked Farrah so much that I actually taped THE BURNING BED onto VHS and watched it more than once.


Five Sentence Tribute: Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson was the king of pop, a fantastic artist, great performer, and one heck of an underrated songwriter. So, so, so many of his songs make me downright happy:  Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough, Rock With You, Human Nature, Wanna Be Startin' Somethin', The Way You Make Me Feel, Man In The Mirror, and the list goes on. I got rid of almost all my vinyl records, but could not sell, trade, or toss the THRILLER album. I was 13 when it came out and nobody was bigger in the 80s (only Madonna, Prince, or Springsteen come close, but not quite). I am happy to have seen him live in 1985 and was just hoping that it could happen again.
