Since reading about Lauren Luke in the New York Times this morning, I've felt inspired by her success. I watched a couple of her make-up tutorials (Lady Gaga Mini Mouse Robot look) over lunch and she's quite entertaining. I enjoy hearing these Internet success stories -- the Internet makes worldwide sensations possible from grassroots efforts! That concept will never cease to amaze me.
I grew up listening to The Jackson 5 and was a big Michael Jackson fan throughout the 80's. Thriller and Bad were my favorite albums. I played those tapes over and over again with my Walkman. Though I haven't given him much thought, I felt sad to hear he died yesterday.
