Subway, or the radio station they subscribe to, seemed to be playing all Michael Jackson all the time, at least while we were there for lunch.

I suppose we're getting closer to the time where artists i care about will be dropping dead left and right, but to me Michael Jackson is still in the category of, "oh, he's one of those people that other people cared about when i was a kid," so my response has been more or less, "eh, whatever," while being somewhat amused by what a big effect his death has had on everyone else, directly or indirectly. Judging by the total lack of a flood of related posts on my friends list (like some other people have reportedly been getting) i guess perhaps a significant number of my cohorts feel the same way?

Edit: Oh hey! Someone else just pointed out the irony that shelleycat and i have been spending the last couple weeks killing Zombie Michael Jackson in Plants vs. Zombies! :) Hope that's not some kind of omen... :)

*raises hand*

I'm there with you. I never had the connection to him that some others have, so it didn't affect me much. I know he's big news, but meh.

Michael Jackson was always this dude that other people cared about while I was growing up, but now that he's dead, I have to admit that he was a pretty fascinating character.

Somebody had said that KIIS FM was playing Michael Jackson straight.
