Falling in love with New Orleans

I was just having a conversation with a coworker about the enchantment that is New Orleans.  She reminded me that before we moved there we watched this video of Ingrid Lucia over and over again.  The song and video say it all.

Who doesn’t want to visit after watching that?

Michael Jackson

I have noticed recently that Michael Jackson has been playing all over the radio.  Has anyone else noticed this?  I figured it’s either because he’s awesome and/or something else is up.  So, of course, I Googled him and realized that the anniversary of his death is coming up at the end of the month.

I remember I was in the office when I heard the news but it was after 5pm so I went running up and down the stairs trying to find someone to talk to about it.  I had such a crush on him when I was younger and I have always felt his story was such a mix of genius and tragedy.

I found some great pictures and the below interview with him when he was a kid.  Man, he could really move…
