cassius, sound of violence

there was a time when i still watched mtv, and i remember this video being played almost non stop (literally, i think it was basically back to back one day) – that was in 2002, according to wikipedia. i never tired of it, or the tune.

i know a lot of people prefer the smaller fests (like bestival) – but wow glasto looked pretty awesome this year. and BLUR headlined! i would definitely have gone just for that. amazing pictorial from the boston globe.

i have to tell you, i’ve never been a huge gossip fan (pardon… the pun?), but i am really digging their new single. the chorus is pretty catchy, i have this on repeat in my car.

i have so many michael jackson remixes to share with you, but i fear i’m going into MJ overkill. so, for a nice change of pace, here’s something completely different.

LEGEND

an Emmy-nominated performance on Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever, in which Jackson premiered “the moonwalk.”

RIP

” We had come to count on the privilege of this view into Jackson’s clearly pained existence. Yet we continued to dance to his songs at parties, exalt the talents of his youth and younger years, and give him credit for changing the landscape of music. It was as if there were two different Michael Jacksons, the one who was here and the one who was already gone.And now that Michael Jackson is gone, not just the part of him we loved and worshiped, but also those parts of him that we questioned and mocked, we are left with a confounding and massive emptiness. ”
