Happy Birthday Michael Jackson!

29 08 2009

From Gothamist:

The King of Pop’s posthumous birthday celebration will go on as planned tomorrow in Prospect Park (after being moved from Fort Greene). We talked to the Parks Department and they’re currently putting up some fencing for the event, which will run from noon to 5 p.m. They say on top of deejays, a jumbotron and Marty Markowitz declaring it Michael Jackson Day in the borough, organizer Spike Lee will be overseeing the day. According to Bloomberg News, around 10,000 people are expected, and Lee put down $11,000 for a permit.

Maaaaaaaaaaaaaan, I wish I was home in Brooklyn right now. If for nothing else, then to hear one of my favorite Jackson Five songs, “Enjoy Yourself.”

Jackson 5: Dance Machine

15 07 2009

I don’t know how Michael Jackson and his brothers managed to dance and sing at the same time without sounding exhausted half way through the song. I get tired just mouthing the words in the mirror after a shower.

At any rate, MJ’s totally set the standard for how the robot should be performed.
