Latte, Rathdowne Food Store, Carlton North

From Crikey.com.au:

9:27am: Today show has mash-up of Jackson’s life and music with Richard Wilkins voice-over. Crikey wondering how they edited it together so quickly when it finishes with this quote: “This man is a unique talent, we can’t wait to see what he comes up with next”. Oh dear.

Oh good. I'm glad I didn't just imagine it.
But at the same time, I also wish that I had. You suck, Channel Nine.
Here's another interesting note from Crikey's coverage:

8:54am: CNN plays Thriller video. That puts the time between his death confirmation and playing his film clip about the undead at about 20 minutes.

I wonder what the window was between the death confirmation and Borders on Lygon St playing two Michael Jackson albums simultaneously?
(Crikey's work experience kid points out that Sanity weren't quite so on-the-ball.)
Something tells me today's sales may have helped Jackson's financial situation. If only he were still around to enjoy it. Sure, Thriller may not "endorse a belief in the occult", but who knows? He might still be out there somewhere. Darkness falls across the land. The midnight hour is close at hand.
(Well, it's midnight somewhere, anyway.)

On to the coffee. The black box will show that the descent to the table was a little too fast, resulting in some meniscus-related spillage on impact.
