Friday fun: a tribute to the future patron saint of black and white photography

In Greek it says "Michael Jackson is dead!". Captured with my iPhone on the way home. Globalisation is a wonderful thing, right?

Anyone who can span the colour divide - literally - deserves a tribute, even if the music was only, well, acceptable.

Post scriptum after the first six comments:

I never liked Jackson's work; it's Friday and I'm being tongue-in-cheek (as usual, but perhaps inappropriately considering that one shouldn't speak ill of the dead) and what I found much more interesting than his demise was the fact that grafitti appeared in a rough part of Athens hours after said person had died in Los Angeles. It's the sort of thing only the Masked Quiche in Cheddar Gorge would stoop to.

BTW, what's happened to Cheddar Gorge. No one interested any more?
Lynda How topical and typical of you Stefan. I liked his music when I was young (er) and it still stands the test as good pop. Sad, sad life, though.

yellodog Nice one, it will no doubt ne historic in a few years as Michael Jacksons status baloons posthumously.

lookagain Was never a big fan of Michael, but have to give him credit. His talent took him to the top of the music world "acceptable" though it was ;) Guy was strange and a bit sad, yes, but millions have enjoyed his efforts.

bedazzled I was a huge fan of Michael Jackson as a kid--a bit weird person but I still feel a little sad partly for his sudden demise and partly for his huge fans waiting eagerly for his July concert. This is a good one!!

Jarvo I guess it says something about where you are that people would write graffiti about it. Nothing like that here. In the UK (as I expect you know) a famous death is an excuse for morbid jokes to start doing the rounds. With someone as notorious as MJ my mobile hasn't stopped buzzing all day.

Nellinka Hm, what a carreer.. from king to saint? =D

????? i never really liked the bugger aether (and won't say what i really think of him, as he will have quite some fans here on pb ). But i guess someone had to be pop king. But what really buggers me is the fact that there will hardly be anything else on the news for the next week at least, and suddenly all his "hits" will reach nr one again on every radio station :-/ Oh well, i suppose he deserves it....somehow ;-)
