Excuse the clothes, I’ve got a funeral to go to

Back when I was at university I remember being told that one of those French Twats, probably Baudrillard or some cunt, had tried to claim that Michael Jackson represented some kind of postmodern essence though his radical transgression of boundaries, his successful blurring of distinctions between male-female, black-white, natural-synthetic, human-alien etc. within his own body. Perhaps something good may come of Michael’s tragic demise in that these smug, pompous arseholes might now shut the fuck up, at least for a day or two. RIP postmodernism? Christ, I hope so.

I always felt rather sorry for Michael, he had a difficult time of it. As far as I could see, unlike evil scum like Madonna he didn't particularly try to encourage all the pretentious toss that was written about him. Although he did refer to himself as the king of pop, rock and soul, so maybe I'm the one talking shit. But in his defence, he was at least a bona fide nutter.

dont get me wrong, im not one of those to jump all over his grave coz
frankly i dont give a shit. But, im
insulted by the phrases like "musical
genious, giant etc, etc."
He was a great performer, granted.
And he really could dance. But not
the Pantheon of mankind, unless we decide that moonwalk equals eternety,
which seems to be the case these days by every media in the world, "alternatives" included.

Quite liked that Gallows stuff from what I saw on youtube, even if it's a bit retro... dare I say postmodern?? AAAGGHH. Nice to hear people shouting a lot though. Reminds me a bit of Halo of Flies - remember them?
