I know what I forgot! Answers to yesterday's quiz: The trufax was, of course, that the first album I bought with my own money was Sheer Heart Attack. For reference, the first vinyl I bought was Trash by Alice Cooper and the first CD Countdown to Extinction by Megadeth. My favourite song of all time is the Ballad of Dwight Frye by Alice Cooper, I have owned five dogs (Shadow, a female black and white short-haired collie; Sheba, a female black labrador-cross; Gollum, a male black labrador cross; Byron and Roxy (still extant). I have eaten sheep's brain, but I didn't enjoy it; I dyed my hair black to cover up the blue when I went back to work in Morrison's in the vacations from uni, and my favourite beer is Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby.

Can I also say just how proud I am of my f-list? TelegramSam and Gina and Daze had a long and interesting discussion in the comments while I was away from my computer, and although all three had strongly held feelings, they remained mostly courteous and came to civilised agreement. You guys rule.

And it appears that Michael Jackson actually is dead. Am I the only one who is far more sad about Farrah Fawcett?

No, me too, Jackson lost the plot years ago.

And in worse news, his "good" stuff will be played a lot in the next few days, I suspect even Radio 4 will succumb at some point :-(

Mmmpf, sorry about that, civil-ish or not. I usually know better than kick up the sand in someone else's box but I'm congenitally incapable of backing down from a debate. Mea culpa. X(

nope. It would be hypocritical of me to mourn someone I never admired.

Another nope here. MJ has been dead to me since Thriller. Off the Wall is still a fine album, though.

I'm not that bothered about either of them; the death that's affected me over the last few days is Stephen Wells.

Shit, Swells is dead? Now I am depressed....
And yes, I am sadder about Farrah than MJ.
But shit, man, Swells...

No, sorry:
Farrah somehow never turned into a significant feature of my time-growing-up, while "Bad" and "Moonwalker" certainly left their mark. And I wasn't even a fan.

I guess that "cardiac arrest" is also something that will roll from Trevor MacDonald's tongue easier than "anal cancer".

I'm not going to be shedding any tears over either of them but Michael Jackson (or more accurately, the music he produced) had a far bigger impact on me than someone who I have to admit I only know because of a haircut.

I can't really say I'm sad about Fawcett or Jackson, because neither was really a very big blip on my radar.

I feel sorry that Farrah died of cancer, but I can't help feeling that Jackson's death is probably a release from a very unhappy existence.

I've desperately been trying NOT to think along those lines since yesterday, because it seems so judgemental, as none of us know what was really going on with him or what his wishes were. But I know what you mean, he seemed pretty unhappy, at least in the media. :\

I feel really sorry for those three children he left behind though. I hope the paparazzi have enough decency to leave the family alone for at least a little while.

As for Farrah Fawcett, I think I'm just too young to have any sentimental attachment to her. It's still sad though, she wasn't really that old, and, well, cancer sucks.

Nope not just you. Not a big fan of his music.

I agree - I'm sad about Jackson. After all his music is pretty unique and was revolutionary in its day - and those dance moves were something else.

However, it's Farrah Fawcett and the way she not only did the girl with the gun bit but also the really hard and challenging roles she took on that really the blond totty of the day wouldn't normally do, if you'll pardon the expression. She was an excellent actress and she's clearly gone through hell in the last few years, too.
