Rest in Peace Michael Jackson

At about midnight last night while talking on the phone to yours dearly, she asked me if I was watching the news. I answered no and asked why. She then tol me that there is a news report claiming that MJ is "dead". At first, I thought it was some joke, like the Jeff Goldblum's hoax. And then I saw the article on bbc saying that MJ is "dead".
I traced the article back to who was the first to report it and saw several tweets about htis on my blackberry. It was later confirmed that he did in fact die, and it was a tragic news indeed.

I'm sure that many have bought the tickets to his comeback concert, which was fully sold out within days if not hours. Certainly, people will think that 50 concerts is stretching it a bit too far considering his age but hey, he's a perfectionist.

I'm pretty sure everyone of you has a favourite Michael Jackson song. I grew up loving "Black and White" thinking that Michael Jackson is in fact, a magician with real powers (yes dreaming) and can turn into a tiger. That's thanks to his "Moonwalker" sort of movie I guess, I remember vaguely he could turn into a car.

But my absolute favourite song of his is without a doubt "Man in The Mirror". I believe that he was under tremendous pressure for the past 15 years since he was accused of being a paedophile. Looking at him, you can't really believe that can you? Whatever it is, may peace be with him and with Youtube, he will live on forever, or that's what I would like to think so.

Nerd way of folding clothes

If there were a nerd way of folding clothes, this would be it. Saw this little toy in an episode of "big bang theory" where Sheldon was folding his clothes in a rather neat way.

Introducing the flip-fold, from the US of A. Now they don't really sell it here in UK so I ordered an imitation one off ebay. This actually made folding clothes quite fun. You just align your shirt in it, fold off the bottom extra and it takes another 3 seconds to fold it into a perfect shape. The best thing about it is that all your other clothes are folded to the exact dimension, quite neat eh? Now my cupboard looks much neater.

All hail technology, (or the lack of it).

Best regards,
