Since I was on a roll, I decided to check out Michael Jackson’s website.


 The New York Times has a long post of updates on Michael Jackson and the world’s reaction to his death.

 YouTube has its own tribute to Michael Jackson’s talent.

Given the recent interest in all things Vampire at a time when books like Twilight are more popular than sliced bread, I think it’s time to revisit Thriller.

  1. Tania, this is a wonderful collection of links to sites that will interest many. Thanks for collecting them so that people can access them from the one place. I’m heading off to his official website right now.

  2. Jenny, unless I’m missing something, his website is a little disappointing. Actually, Natasha just commented my post on Facebook, and she has some great ideas for English lessons combining all sorts of things branching off from thriller and Twilight. Have a look.
