    Seeing the words "the most successful solo artist of the decade" makes me feel pretty good. The video with little Michael--I always find it amazing that he had begun to vibrate that left leg and continued doing so with the same intensity & rhythm into adulthood.

    I am grateful to a fan here you sent me cry & shout in 2010 as a gift. I never saw Shout in the US before so this was a great treat to me. There are some wonderful people here.

    This is wonderful it always cheers me up to see something like "he was the most successful artist of the decade" or he "broke X and Y record" plus lovin' TWYMMF & I'll Be There & Cry videos, thanks again, Qbee.

    She's keeping him by keeping him around~

    You and I were never separate.
    It's just an illusion. Wrought by the magical lens of perception~

    I had to choose between honest arrogance and hypocritical humility.
    I chose honest arrogance and have seen no occasion to change.
