HOLY FUCKING SHIT

This Is It is awesome. Considering how passive I was at Michael Jackson's death, I didn't expect to actually be moved by a rock documentary was really about kick ass work ethics, the potential of a very ambitious live show and the very musical definition of "in the pocket."

You really don't know "in the pocket" until you hear Michael Jackson's backing band. I'm dead serious. I was smiling the entire time. Bizarre.

Now I'm sad. Would have been a rad show. Worth flying over the pond over.

Double bizarre.

Meet Phil, 8-year-old student with a knack for playing Bach.
PHIL: Hugo, I have a question.

HUGO: What's up?

PHIL: Do you have a girlfriend?

HUGO: ...Yeah. ...Why?

PHIL: Are they expensive?
The more I document conversations with my young piano students, the more I feel like Kathie Lee Gifford in the opening segment of Live with Regis and Kathie Lee raving about whatever stupid fucking thing Cody did the night before.

Except my kids are cool.

Cody, however, was a fucking pussy. OOH WOW, YOU BABBLED AND BOOBLED OVER YOUR CEREAL.

SUCK A DICK, YOU FUCKING BABY.
