shit man it gave closure to the fucking tragedy his life had become. there was no way he was going to come out with more genius music, so its not like a tupac/biggie thing where the world is missing out on music 'he died too young' type shit.



 

i don't think the world could've shown out harder for him, 4 billion people repping his shit hard, even after all the fuckery post-1990?? people said they were mourning, but in reality they were celebrating his music. i hope thats how i'm remembered too, celebrated, not mourned.

 

mj's death was inevitable, it only makes sense it would go down in 2009

2009 has been a very intriguing year so far, especially on a personal level.

naw.....im sure he would have come out with more music....whether he produced it for others or made it himself.

 

plus since he was a humanitarian, im sure he wouldve continued helping people for the rest of his life....he did kinda die young too by the way.....since the average life span is in the 80s now, he still had another 30 or so years left.

2009 has been ok. I finished college, just got a job doing photography for now until i find a job in a better city. Though, this job has the possibility of making 40-60g a year, so if shit goes well with it i may just try to transfer to the same position in a different state/city. Plus, no family members or friends have died yet this year, which is always a bonus.

 

On the downside, i'm not living in a city i like at all and i don't know anyone there except for my neighbor who i just met last week, but she'll be disappearing back to college an hour or so away in a month. Oh well, money > friends for the next few years until i have a good chunk of change in the bank.

I have been thinking about how this 'decade' is coming to an end fairly soon. I am not even sure what to call this decade. The 00's ? Hm.

Thus far 2009 has been a very good year for me.

 

Learned how to drive! ( I am 24 and should have learned long ago )

Have a position as a volunteer waiting in the Philippines, and am moving there in 1.5 months.

No loved ones have died and I haven't been arrested in a couple of years.

I have a pretty fun job right now, working with kids, that pays cash.

 

What sort of photography jobs do you guys have? If you don't mind my asking.

Nah while i get ur point about MJ, i don't think death is ever a good thing to wish, that nigga has young kids who are now going to be surrounded by scumbags who want to leech off them and whore them out..

 

 

I think those kids are going to be fucked up when theyre older...

I'm glad to hear it's going well for you guys, but so far I hate 2009. The Detroit Pistons have only gotten worse, I work too much, and on new year's day I woke up next to a shameful woman who couldn't stop blabbing about how she's living her dream job working for Vice magazine. I knew it was gonna be a bad year right then and there. Then I happened upon that fucked up hat store in the Lower East Side, I'm sure some of you remember that shit..

 

*drinks a shot of Evan Williams*

 

oh, and 30 is right around the corner now, 2k9 is the twilight of my 20's. I'm dealing with this frustration by surrounding myself with NYU sluts who frequent the bars I work at.

Nothing particularly exciting, i'm doing commission studio portraiture in churches, but it isn't uncommon for the good photographers who are able to maximize their sales to make $200+ on most days, which is 52g right there if you can maintain that as your average. The job kinda just fell in my lap when i wasn't even remotely looking for photography jobs, but it should be better than any other short-medium term job i would've found.
