Yesterday was the first day of the year that actually felt like late spring/early summer, and it felt damn good. So what did I do? I got a needle, pumped up my basketball, put on my gear, and went to the outdoor courts to test my game against guys who were 10 years younger. Not only were they younger, but I seemed to be the only one under 6'3, which made things even more interesting. I surprisingly held my own out there. I didn't get dunked on, I didn't get crossed over, and despite being called little man the entire time, I was proud of myself...until i stepped off the court. Since that moment, my ribs are killing, my calves are sore, my back hurts and I feel about 47 years old. I have come to realization that this is how its going to be unless I play that hard at least 2 or 3 times a week.

And now, since I don't have much to say today, I am going to post a video by the Jacksons. I am posting this, because Michael Jackson not only puts on a dancing clinic, but he masters the elusive art of singing on key while dancing. Today's performers typically pre-tape songs, or lip-sync, or they just stop singing to dance, but Michael does both, and I never get sick of watching different version of this video.

Damn. With all the stuff swirling around Mike, people forget how much the truth he was--and that was tame compared to many of his early performances.

Bill cracked me up when he cracked on the size of the Jackson family.

There will never EVER be another MJ. Chris Brown, Usher and the rest of them need to just calm down.

I just bought History on Film, Vol. 2 yesterday. Hopefully I'll find time to watch it tonight while I pack.
