I'm Betting Drugs

He may have been an awful human, but back when he was still black the kid could dance.

Vale, sort of.

'Heart Attack'? Drugs probably. Dude could perform back in the day, for sure.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Farah Fawcett has died as well.

Coincidence?

Probably.

No One Can Hurt You Now
Because You Know What's True
Yes, I Believe In Me
So You Believe In You
Help Me Sing It, Ma Ma Se,
Ma Ma Sa, Ma Ma Coo Sa
Ma Ma Se, Ma Ma Sa,
Ma Ma Coo Sa

Perseus said...

"Keep on, for the post shop... don't stop til you get enough"... well, that's how I sing it anyway.

Melba said...

Dude could dance, that's fo sho.

A titled boy from a fucked up family who once walked around in front of me naked when we were kids, making me very uncomfortable, grew up to have a son, who was involved in litigation against MJ re: molestation.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

I can't beat that Bob.

The only thing I had for today was

The trouble with a kitten is that,
Eventually it becomes a cat

squib said...

Oh great. Now there's gonna be MJ tributes and specials 24/7. May as well turn the telly off until August

Boogeyman said...

Dude could dance

Dead can dance now.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Dead can dance

Fuck I hate that band.

Boogeyman said...

I thought a mid-80s gloomy orchestral goth rock band would be right up your alley, Ramon.

*sniff* Just when you think you know someone they turn around and shatter your world. This is just like the day I found out Trent Reznor was a big fan of Milli Vanilli.

Lewd Bob said...

Uri Geller is reportedly 'devastated'.

Unfortunately Jacko's death has overshadowed Farrah's brave fight against cancer.

What will Today Tonight run with first? What a dilemma.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Seven minutes of hippie wailing, Boogey?

I think not.

More of a Jesus and Mary Chain man, me.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

And in what can only be described as "a tremendous blow to EMS", Jeff Goldblum has also died.

This is a great day for spin-doctors world wide.

Boogeyman said...

I'm a bit miffed abotu the heading that the SMH is leading with:

"Day the Boogie Died"

Reports of my death are greatly exaggerated, thank you very much.

Melba said...

The Goldblum thing is a rumour.

squib said...

Where is the tractor poem? Well?

homesick said...

Surely Swayze is odds on for the trifecta..not Goldblum.

I tried the TAB but no luck, but trust goold ol' Ladbrokes as they will let you put sterling on the above mentioned trifecta.

" and I think to myself... whatta wonderful world.."

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

I've been busy, Squib.

Next week.

Leilani said...

You know Off the Wall was the first album I ever bought. I totally LOVED it and spent many hours not only listening to it but staring at that album cover. I think it was the start of my sexual awakening, Jackson was my first celebrity crush. I was disappointed when he had his nose done before Thriller and then it was all downhill after that. But for a couple of years (79/80) he was IT for me.

Fad MD said...

The jokes have certainly been coming think and fast...

patchouligirl said...

My Dad always hated MJ and Madonna which made me always love them more. You can't take away what MJ did for music and dance and he practically invented the music video. Okay he was weird but Im still not 100% sure if he was a pedophile or just loved kids and was naive. He did do a lot of legitimate charity work for disadvantaged kids. I wonder if Debbie whats her name will get custody of the kids?

Melba said...

Interesting article from earlier this year:

http://news.softpedia.com/news/Michael-Jackson-Hands-Kids-over-to-Sister-Janet-105547.shtml

Seems his health was failing and he organised for Janet to take the kids if he died.

Leilani said...

I never got over the Prince Michael I and II thing, surely that's a form of child abuse?

Ophelia said...

I got totally sucked into the Jeff Goldblum death hoax this morning.. was genuinely upset about it too! I really must stop believing things I see on teh interwebs.

I'm with EMS on that one - he's quirky but oddly attractive. Must be the intellect that sparkles through. Mind you, he does have HUGE ears. If you hadn't noticed that before, you will now!

patchouligirl said...

I never forgot that 'what am I? chopped liver?' line from the big chill. He isn't the most attractive movie star for sure - gives hope to us all.

Louche said...

There will be a post-mortem today to determine which was the cause of death:

A) Sunshine B) Moonlight C) Good Times D) Boogie

(thanks Popbitch)

Boogeyman said...

You can't prove I did anything.

eat my shorts said...

And in what can only be described as "a tremendous blow to EMS", Jeff Goldblum has also died.

Not that I believed even for a second he was dead, but don't you worry about me. Even if he had kicked the bucket, I've got plenty of other weird, slightly dirty and wrong celebrity crushes to keep me going for eons. Or at least until I'm eighty.

Lewd Bob said...

I choose D)

Boogeyman said...

Lewd Bob, shouldn't you be getting ready for Perseus's shindig this evening?

Aren't you supposed to be MC-ing the undesirable friends he doesn't want mingling with his harem of possible conquests?

Lewd Bob said...

I intend to bring down his plans from within. I'm going to rally the people and bring about a TSFKA revolution.

There'll be screams from the harem:

"The bloggers are revolting!"

Boogeyman said...

I've had parties before where groups of disparate friends come along and hang out together in small groups and never mingle with each other. It's an absolute nightmare for the host who knows all the groups, having to go from one to the other all night.

So since in this case it's Perseus, please take notes and reveal his pain to the blogging world tomorrow.

eat my shorts said...

Mind you, he does have HUGE ears. If you hadn't noticed that before, you will now!

You know, I hadn't noticed the ears before. I'll have to have a very close look next time Law and Order's on.

Funny thing is, I used to have a crush on a boy at high school who was a wing nut. Maybe I have an ear fetish?

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

So.

How was the party?

chewy justice said...

The cake was awesome.

Cath said...

Oh Yes, the cake was awesome! Thanks!

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Cake!

There was cake?

Bugger, I knew I should have gone.

Cath said...

Slacker Ramon!!! Instead, we just bitched about the TSFKA'ers that didn't turn up...

Boogeyman said...

I always knew Perseus was a 'let them eat cake' kind of guy.

Mind you, I shouldn't speak so disrespectfully of my elders.

Desci said...

Trent Reznor was a big fan of Milli Vanilli.

Boogey, anything Trent did pre-1989 doesn't count. 'Down in it' is the thin, awkwardly rapping line.
