Michael Jackson was bizarre, for sure........

...but since the news of his death broke, I just cannot get this out of my head.
And I'm not what you'd call "a fan".

"Billie Jean is not my lover
She's just a girl who claims that I am the one
[ Michael Jackson Lyrics are found on ]
But the kid is not my son
She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son"

I challenge ANYONE to listen to it and not want to at least tap your foot.

Same thing with "Beat it".

I also wonder if he deserves to rest in peace.

Although the accusations against him were probably legitimate, his brain was undoubtedly warped due to the way he was "handled" as a pre-pubescent celebrity child in the no-holds-barred shark filled world of the West coast entertainment industry.

Like Elvis, he had no chance at being "normal".

At least that's my take on him, the so-called "King of Pop".

Oh yeah, I figure some of the highwaymen listened to his music while they were creating some of their art.

And that, gentle readers, is the tie-in.

Officially summertime, sum-sum-summertime.

The solstice is upon us today and I celebrated this morning's sunrise, as I do every summer solstice, by sacrificing a virgin on the stone altar in my back yard, and making a wish.

I've been doing this for about 8 years now. Previously I had been just killing chickens and the occasional lamb (as they do in the islands, mon), but I thought going way back to Druidism might help increase sales, and and it worked, so I'm staying with virgins.

I mean, I have to do SOMETHING to get some sales going for the summer, because there are just no decent shows to do til August that are within 7 hours driving time. Potential buyers don't get to see all the great stuff I offer for sale except thru the internet. They don't know I have something new and fresh unless I work the phone and become Joe the telemarketer.

I guess I'll go do some more of that today.

By the way, as if the gators, snakes and spiders weren't bad enough here in south Florida, now we got 6 foot dinosaurs multiplying. Here's the link:

Happy Father's day tomorrow to those of you who were successful at that.

Until next time, as my cousin John likes to say, "Stay thirsty, my friend".

He would like us to think he's the most interesting man in the world.
