The Death of Michael Jackson


It's a headline so shocking, that it seems unbelievable. Despite a tumultuous past couple of years, it always seemed that Michael Jackson would be around. He was part of our childhood, our upbringing, our lives. He was pop culture as we knew it. Now that is no more...and it still feels a little surreal.

(UPDATED 6/28) -There is not much that you can say regarding the events, or tragedies that have occured this week. As the years go by, and the experiences continue to confirm the valididty of deaths coming in groups of three, there was an eerie feeling upon hearing the hospitlization of Michael Jackson following the deaths of Ed McMahon and Farah Fawcett.On Thursday June 25th, 2009, Michael Jackson was pronounced dead. His death, one of the few moments where time stood still, will coincide with history, personal reflection, and precise location, the same way his music did. We all will remember the time, day, weather, location and events when we heard of Jackson's death.

Jackson, the most influential, gifted, and talented musical performer of all-time, paved the way for many musical artists today and changed the tide of musical expression through his dance, flexibility and creativity. Despite the end of a remarkable career, Michael Jackson's legacy will live on through his music, which will forever be timeless.

What is it about? A long-time scout, Stanley Sugarman, grinds out the life of an NBA scout and the politics of the NBA by taking a chance on a prospect he believes in to change both of their lives.  Who is in it? Adam Sandler - Stanley Sugarman Juancho Hernangomez - Bo Cruz Queen Latifah - Teresa Sugarman Favorite Scene:   Kermit and Bo line up at center court and Kermit begins the trash talk to get inside of Bo's head, eventually taking him off his game.  Favorite Quote:   "I'll say one last inspirational thing to you: they can't kill you if you're already dead." Review:  Hustle sat on "My List" on my Netflix account for quite a long time. Parked on the couch in the middle of the night with a newborn, and jonesing for some hoops, I dove in on what I read (and heard from others) was a "really good film". I'll give away the suspense, I thought Hustle was decent. It felt too cliche and had little depth, but still, a really good film.  The
