Random Jacksons Moment

11 January 2010 2 Comments

After my much needed hiatus I’m refreshed and re-focused…well, sort of. Since I spent the first week of the new year laying low I only absorbed all of the motivational “let get it in 2010!” talk from afar, and am rejoining the online community in a regular winter blues state of mind. It’s cold. It’s not just December on the East Coast cold, it’s freezing. I spent my time away in FLORIDA where it was only fifty degrees or so, which is way better than the negative temperatures I would have faced at home but still a huge rip off considering I had to brave strange security inspections and exploding Nigerian draws to escape to weather that is best described as “nippy.” I’m not sure if the dark, short days inevitably make me poke my lip out when I have to leave the house or if it’s just an excuse for hibernation, but the only thing that gets me through this season is the knowledge that there are some people who actually enjoy cold weather, and they should have a chance to enjoy their lives too.

Check out this really strange video of The Jacksons performing Blame It On The Boogie on a ski slope. I highly doubt Michael is having the blast he’s pretending to have standing out there in the cold with his seventies ski wear and non-functional scarf, but the smile on his face despite the snow and weirdo kids surrounding him inspires me in a way. If he could act happy while freezing, so can I!

    If that was me I not would be smiling if I had to perform in the snow and on the slope at that with no gloves or cozy coat.

    Excellent song and and excellent find on your part! The graphic at the 1:40 mark is right. While watching this, I was trying to tell if they filmed this using a processed shot. I think I did see snow on the bottom of one of the Jackson’s boots so I’ll give them credit for braving the cold.

So what do you think? Please be respectful to other readers!
