The Memorial

I just watched the MJ memorial service and have been hearing about it all day. I wrote last week that his last 15 years would make it difficult to hear all the eulogies and it was (especially Al Sharpton). Some of the highlights, in my mind, included the daughter and son of Martin Luther King Jr., Smokey Robinson, and Barry Gordy.

Well, last week Bill Simmons and Chuck Klosterman discussed Michael's legacy. Bill is a sports writer for ESPN and discusser of all things pop culture and Chuck is an author and over-thinker of all things pop culture. He literally wrote the book about dead musicians and their legacy. I thought I would post the podcast here rather than write everything they say and pass it off as my own. Michael would've wanted it that way. The MJ part lasts only for the first 30 minutes or so and then goes off in all sorts of tangents including Twitter, The L.A. Clippers, the writer's craft and everywhere in between.
