  1. bill says:

    awe, i made banana nut bread today. i am pretty sure it will be gone by the next time i see you though, so i can’t share. sorry. I really related to the Friends episode where Joey doesn’t share food.

  2. bill says:

    oooops, that was betsy, not bill.

  3. Jason says:

    you had me at “awe”
    you lost me at “can’t share”

    You know I think it takes a brave man to admit that Michael Jackson is your favorite all time artist. That being said, I think that if we all had enough courage a lot of us would admit that also.

    When I was at Johnson I remember Barbara Walters or someone did a huge special on Michael Jackson on prime time. One of the guys on the wing was watching it and every so often someone would come into the room realize what he was watching and begin to make fun of him. Then they would sit down and watch it also. By the end of the show there were about 10 of us watching the special. And when it was all over we each did our best to try and dance like Michael. I will never forget that night. I think Bill was there if I am not mistaken.

    Bill WAS there, and it was this concert that was in honor of him and usher performed at it, but Michael also performed at it (again, even though it was for him). i know because i was watching it in my room. Bill still talks about that night.

    this is the part of the blog where i out michael cody for having michael jackson doll. i will also out myself for owning Moonwalker on VHS. I will also out the Jabbawockeez for rocking hard to PYT. I think I could keep outing people that love MJ, including Michael Jordan…do you guys remember the video for “Jam”?

  6. Jason says:

    When I was at KCC, my friends and I watched a 2 hour live in concert Michael Jackson special on HBO from the History Tour.. It was in Budapest or something, at a soccer stadium filled 200,000 crazy fans. AMAZING. The last song was “Man in the Mirror”, and the song went on for roughly 15 minutes. During the song, 150 kids, each from a different country around the world, came onto the stage and were all singing the chorus together over and over.

    Toward the end of the song, Michael, while still singing, straps on a jet pack. Then turns it on. Then FREAKING STARTS FLYING OVER THE CROWD in a freaking strapped on jet pack. Then flies out of the stadium. Then a voice comes over the sound system and says, “Ladies and gentleman, Michael Jackson has now left the stadium.” One of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen.

  7. greg says:

    that’s not particularly impressive. That’s how I leave the stage most Sunday mornings at PUMC.

  8. jeph says:
