He was a god to inventors. I've been watching his show Pitchmen
on Discovery Channel
. It's actually very interesting how they go through the process of making those infomercials. It looks harder to do, once you see the behind the scenes. I've become hooked on it, which is weird, because it's a show about commercials. So for me this was a bit more of a bummer than the death of MJ. The weird thing is he was on a commercial flight. In the second or third episode of the show, him and his business partner buy a private jet.
I'd be real worried if I was a celebrity, they're dropping like flies all of a sudden. I think with the economy, "bad things in life" has switched from groups of 3s to 4s to keep up demand.
