the man in the mirror(or record player)

i used to own this exact record player circa 1986. i had a total crush on MJ and wanted to give him a book of mormon so that he could join the church and we could get married and live happily ever after. i also had a roommate in college who had the same dream, but only with justin timberlake and the rest of nsync. she was 20. i was 6.

i am currently wishing that i had held onto this gem of nostalgia. this beauty was fetching $270 before the king of pop became the king of pop, emeritus. the worth now could probably pay for any minor plastic surgery procedure i would like to get in the near future. a fitting tribute, right?

but on a serious note, does it mean that you are officially old when your favorite pop star of your youth dies? last night at my volleyball game, we dedicated our perfomance to the memory of michael jackson. at first we were BAD, as in good(it was a thriller, almost dangerous) and came thisclose to winning our first game. the second game we were still pretty good, but not like the first game. by the final game we were tired and not feeling very excited. we did our best to play well, but our age was showing. and then we beat it and went home to our families. it was like the king of pop was right there all along.

a final note, how many michael jackson RIP tatoos do you anticipate seeing in the coming weeks, even considering his more recent checkered HIStory?

I'm speechless. That could possibly be THE most perfectly written tribute to MJ I've read. I can't improve upon it. Wow.

PS-Who was the roommate? Anyone I know?

So how come more people aren't commenting on your heidiluxe posts? These last two have been priceless and yet Heather and I are the only two who can manage to comment? What's up with that?

Something stinks in surburbia! (10 points for naming that flick)

nat, because you and heather are the only two people on my "level" of thinking. everyone else is just blown away by the genius that is heidiluxe.
