Sad about MJ's :-(

My favorites of his are:
  • Billie Jean
  • Smooth Criminal
  • Bad
  • Beat It
  • They Don't Care About Us
  • Black or White
(pretty much in that order)

Though 'Billie Jean' is my most favorite, it makes me sad when I listen to it too many times... all the crazies he had to deal with even back then.

I am now doing an "hour of learning" every day, where I spend 15 minutes each on 4 different subjects. This reduces my senseless browsing around that leaves me fatigued. I am finding that I am spending more than the 15 minutes and in more than 4 different subjects, as I am getting too engrossed. This activity feels awesome. I am keeping detailed log but I don't plan to publish them for privacy reasons. The subjects I touched in my today's session were : lighttpd, boto.py, pg' ansi cl, emacs, linux, python, analysis of genes and genomes. I ended up spending way more than an hour ;)
