Still Moonwalking

Okay I am not going to go on and on about how I think Michael Jackson was a freak. Nor am I going to place judgement on him. When I heard the news today of his passing I taken back to the 80's and being a huge fan at 9 years old. Now I am 36 and a lot has happen since then with Mike. Some great and some very questionable. And it would be easy to highlight and weird and unusual but I would rather share with you one of my favorite memories of Michael Jackson.

At 9 years old, at a time before the Internet and Facebook, Michael came onto the scene and was everywhere, and doing things no one else was doing, including the Moonwalk. The Moonwalk was the coolest thing to me and my friends. I can remember always having the loafers on so I could Moonwalk up and down the hallways of my house. Sounds silly now, but it was the 80's and that is what you did.

Here is a Pepsi commercial Michael Jackson did back in the day:

I was really sad that he died...I had hoped to one day see him rise above all the baggage and be amazing not only on stage but as an example of overcoming demons...Like you, I choose to remember the good things....
