RIP Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson: They produced lots of memories for us age 40+ members of society!


Sad to hear today of the death of two VERY famous people — Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson.

Politically, socially, and morally I probably didn’t agree much with either of them, but both were famous beyond almost ALL, if not all, others in their fields…and both displayed talent.

Farrah Fawcett had the hair all us girls wanted in Junior High School!  And college would have never been the same without the endless Thriller video by Michael Jackson.

Oddly enough, Fawcett became famous on her looks with her real acting talent really never shining through until later in her career. 

Conversely, Michael Jackson’s talent was clear as a youngster and earlier in his life….until, as Michelle Malkin put it, the “Hollyweird” overtook him.  Then his looks became a clear metaphor for the weird and eccentric turn his life took.

Many of us have great long ago memories of these two icons idols*…..may they rest in peace.

* I stand corrected.

  2. Hi SRT!
    I grew up with them as well. In a way, it reminds us there is only one thing that binds us all in a common shared reality – death. I wish I could say with confidence that either knew our creator, and sadly the one who in reality conquered death, will remain an after thought in Gollywood, USA.

    Blessings sis!
