The Thriller is Gone

Sorry I didn't post this sooner, but it is sad news. I'm still bummin' over this. You already know this, but I just had to post that Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, had died on June 24th of this year. So, why would I post this at all if it's all over the news? Well, I liked M.J.'s songs. From his days in the Jackson 5 to that iconic Moonwalk, he kept me groovin' to his hits for a long time. It's a shame that he had to go out in this way. I'll truly miss him.

Score Another Milestone for Donald Duck!

Donald Duck, Disney's temperamental water fowl, celebrates his 75th birthday today! D23, the official site for Disney fans, marks the occasion. So does the Today in Disney History blog since this is the day he debuted in the Silly Symphony "The Wise Little Hen" as they kindly pointed out here. Even Blue Sky Disney honors the milestone in the duck's history. There's even an article online about a man who came to Disneyland to celebrate his 75th birthday on the same day as Donald's! Read all about it here. And in case you missed it, here's my post on the duck's birthday last year with as many links I could find at the time. I'm sure you'll want to search YouTube for "The Wise Little Hen" to watch the cartoon to celebrate. After all, it's always nice to see where the Disney duck got his start. Happy Birthday, Donald!
