RIP Pop Music's Legend: Michael Jackson

All posts for the rest of the weekend have been postponed til Monday. I am in complete and utter shock. On Thursday afternoon (today), 50 year old legend Michael Jackson passed away due to cardiac arrest. No matter your feelings about his decisions of late -- there is no question that Jackson's legacy is one of the most profound influences on all current music, no matter the genre. We owe so much to him. Just writing this alone is making start to shudder with supreme shock. I don't know what to think, I don't know what to say...I'm just...gone. I'm stunned. It's one of those moments that you will always remember where you were when you heard the news.

May you rest in peace, sir. You are loved, revered and sorely missed.
