I wasn’t his biggest fan, but like most of the population I do own a copy of his album, Thriller and I respect him for the impact he had on the pop-music scene. Singer, songwriter and dancer – what a talent!
I can remember back in the early 80s, going to a business meeting at work, where the host had videoed a copy of the Thriller video the night before for us all to watch during the meeting. In those days, it was a very sought-after thing to have seen – and we must have been one-of-the-few to have done so. Apart from the outstanding special effects, it was also the longest pop-video I’d ever seen and remains very clear in my memory.
Hearing the news today was a real shock – and I had to listen to the news bulletin very carefully to ensure I’d heard it correctly!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
