pictured here: nat, collecting blackmail; bruce, wishing he had cooler friends; clint, trying to do bunny ears behind tony’s hat, thor, engaging in a ‘delightful midgardian tradition;’ tony, preparing to bestow the Cone of Shame, and steve, still a pain in the neck even after all these decades.

plus me, making birthday wishes that cant be repeated in front of g-rated audiences, due to excessive swearing. 

it has been a very good but very tiring birthday, and i am (allegedly) a very old old man. so im gonna take my huge pile of loot to bed and cuddle all my new guns and knives.

Michael Jackson was not an artist who comes along once in a decade, a generation, or a lifetime. He was an artist who comes along only once, period. He was driven by his hunger to learn, to constantly top himself, to be the best. He was the consummate student. He studied the greats and became greater. He raised the bar and then broke the bar. His talent and creativity thrust him and entertainment into the stratosphere. 

I mean Michael Jackson was awesome! Totally in charge. In fact the more I think and talk about Michael Jackson, the more I feel the “King of Pop” was not big enough for him. I think he was simply “The Greatest Entertainer That Ever Lived”. -Berry Gordy
