Wack attack

Apparently the only thing that wasn't plastic or augmented by a surgical procedure on Michael Jackson went kaput today in Los Angeles. Jackson had made a request to be buried with several children to service him in the afterlife.

Oh, and Roger Daltrey, er, I mean Farrah Fawcett also passed away today.

The deaths of entertainers seems to garner more attention and emotional investment* from our celebrity obsessed culture than, say, global warming or poverty. Bleh.

*Let's be honest, probably more for Jackson than Fawcett because:
1. Plastic boy has a HUGE global fan base (i.e. "nutters").
2. Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith are hotter.

i've always found it weird when ppl were so geeked on celebrities that they cared more when x, y, or z celeb checked out than they were about the real ppl in their life. but i guess i'm just old-fashioned that way.

btw, you have the funniest word verification strings of any i've seen. "oveogink?"

It's a pretty disturbing set of values a lot of people have, especially in this country.

The word verification system could provide a bounty of song titles, lyrics, and/or band names. Oveogink could be a concept album...
