I read it online. I remember when he was just a little kid.

I have some pretty awkward feelings about it, too. I was a big MJ fan back in the day, and I still boogie down to his music today. We were introduced at our wedding reception to Wanna Be Startin' Something and I even did the moonwalk during the reception. I used to perform his Billy Jean bit during Jr High/High School dances.
My earliest memory of music was listening to the Thriller tape in my little cassette player when I was 4 or 5 years old. I even had a red zipper jacket.
I still listen to the Jackson 5 (check my past tweets, I even tweet about the awesomeness of some of those old songs).
Really, I guess it is a sad day... but mostly because I feel like part of my childhood has died.
