I second that NO!

The last Michael Jackson album that I bought was Ben ... when it first came out.

No, but I was endlessly looping the YouTube video of the "Simpsons" animation of "Do the Bartman," if that counts for anything. Unbelievably, Sunday night before "The Simpsons" was the first time I had seen the video........ (Not that unbelievable, if you factor in that I've never watched MTV or the like....)

no, why? don't need to, there's no problem finding a radio station not playings his records.

i downloaded Thriller, by way off the vast free-ness that is the Internet. I mean, it's not like he needs my money these days.

Too soon?

Allan, I contributed a few grafs to this 7 Ways Michael Jackson Changed the World. My favorite line was:

His death leaves many questions, not the least of them being what, exactly, does "Shamone" mean?

No, but I pulled out my vinyl albums and blared them. Did the same thing when Jerry Garcia died. MJ, like him or not, was a visionary.

I sure did, about 30 mins after the media confirmed that he died. I ordered Off the Wall, Thriller, and Bad from I still had the Thriller album, but I wanted to have the cd's for convenience (it's not like you can play an album just anywhere). Glad I ordered it when I did, because I heard sold out that day.

Thanks for the e-mails and comments, everybody. Here's a link to a piece I did, which ran in today's paper:,0,1603133.story

the only ones that i have are Blood on the Dance Floor and Dangerous

Yes. I ordered the DVD of the Bucharest concert, which is brilliant.
