The untimely and sudden end of Michael Jackson has sent a shockwave around the planet. In the Amazon, indians are wondering what the hell is this disturbance in the force.

I wonder what percentage of humanity were impacted by this news?

Thus we enter the Post Jackson Age, June 26th, 2009. Michael Jackson’s time of death was 2:26am. My birth date is entirely comprised of twos and sixes so I have an irrational affinity with these numbers.

There have been midsummer parties for thousands of years.

Tonight is the biggest annual party in Europe. 150,00 arrive Glastonbury’s first full night, and the madness ensues.

Even people who aren’t aware of festivals, don’t like music or don’t watch television or the use the internet can go a little crazy at this time of year in the Northern hemisphere, when the sun is high.

I suspect that without watching video evidence via live coverage of the festival, humans can sense these changes in the Force. Large “get out of it” gatherings like Glastonbury festival set off chain reactions of psychic, social similar events, which is felt by populations all the way to the Urals.

I wonder how the celebrating will be tinged with pathos at the artists brutal annihilation by fate. We’re told it was due possibly to an overdose administered by his doctor.

In the midst of life we are in death. In the middle of the summer, a chill, unnerving wind.
