  1. Does anyone know if any clubs–Jerky’s, Black Rep, etc. will be hosting a tribute dance party night?

  2. Jesse from Cranston

    Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson. Major star death trifecta complete.

  3. Lets all get together tonight at burnside park in providence to pay tribute to michael jackson, bring candles, music, memorabilia, and your spirit to honor his spirit. Tell your fellow michael jackson fans, spread the word, craigslist, facebook. I have a group there for it

    email me at thetwilight kidd @ gmail

    (remove the space between thetwilight and kidd, its all one word

  4. There wasn’t and probably will never be anyone who can match him in terms of worldwide recognition, mainstream appeal and the passion he aroused, no matter where you stand. Sad to see it end this way.
