As I was doing my “research” for all of my classic Disney related blogs, I noticed that there were quite a few of comments that said that the movies from the ’90s are so much better than the more recent stuff. Case in point would the comment that veranasy16 made. This person said that he/she misses old Disney and the he/she won’t get bored watching stuff like The Lion King no matter how old he/she gets. Now, I’m a bit biased because I was raised on the ’90s movies and whatnot, but I have to agree with comments like that. I’m not saying the stuff nowadays is crap, but there’s a reason why the classics are called classics. I can’t really explain it. I think what it might be is the stuff from the ’90s is the best of cartoon animation. The current stuff, I think, is the best of computer animation. Although, I think stuff like High School Musical is kinda crappy. Anyway, that’s just my opinion.

I was just thinking about my post from the other day about how Michael Jackson’s death is getting more publicity than Farrah Fawcett’s. That made me think about how much publicity his death is getting in general. Personally, I think that his death is getting way too much. Now I get that people were and are still grieving and what not, but is it really necessary to have a Michael radio marathon every day or have updates on each news cast? I know it sounds kinda mean but I have a point to a certain degree.
You know, with Michael’s death on the news a lot recently, that made me think about his estate, Neverland. I was thinking that part of the reason why he had the fun rides, the games, etc., on Neverland was that he could try and live his childhood through the the kids that went there. Because if you think about it, he didn’t really have a “normal” childhood. He spent a lot of his childhood as a child star. And you know that not every child star grows up to be ok.
Since it’s been about two or three days since both Michael Jackson’s and Farrah Fawcett’s deaths, I was beginning to think about their respective deaths. I think that it’s kinda bad that Michael’s death is getting more publicity than Farrah’s. I mean, granted, Farrah wasn’t quite as famous or as popular Michael, but I think that she should get a little bit more press than what she’s been getting, or rather, the lack of press. But on the other hand, it could be a good thing because the Fawcett family might not want that publicity. I think what it is is that Michael’s death was way more unexpected than Farrah’s death. But either way, I think that Farrah should get a little bit more publicity.
Well, the first thing that I want to say is that I want to extend my sympathies to Michael Jackson’s family, even though I don’t know the family and they probably won’t read this. Now keep in mind that I’m not a big MJ fan but when I first found out, I was shocked. I never really expected to see him die at his age. At first, I honestly thought it was either a publicity stunt or a hoax, or even maybe he did go to the hospital for something but it was blown out of proportion by the media. All I can say now is that not only did the Jackson family lose a family member, but the music world lost a huge musical legend and influence. And no matter what anyone says, Michael Jackson will always be the King of Pop much like how Elvis Presley will always be the King of Rock and Roll.
