There's probably a few hundred people here at the Arlington Theatre in Santa Barbara for a big screen viewing of the Michael Jackson memorial. Mosef and I are two of them. People in the theatre are clapping, people are crying...you can hear sniffling all around. Lionel Richie is performing right now, and We are the World is slated for the finale. It's only Tuesday! ¡Uuuufff!
UPDATE: 2:33pm. The memorial was saaaaaaad. Al Sharpton, Usher, and Stevie Wonder really took the cake for me. Amazing amazing stuff. The only downfall was that Santa Barbara's broadcast of CNN's coverage was interrupted 3 TIMES by the monthly emergency broadcast system. 3 times. One of which was right as Stevie Wonder was speaking before he performed "Never Dreamed You'd Leave in Summer" which weaved nicely into "They Won't Go When I Go."
I need a nap. Poolside at the dub will suffice.
