Thank you Mr. Lee for even doing this again this year! Even though the weather was rough we made the best of a wonderful Michael Jackson birthday weekend. The topping on the cake was the MTV Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award, hearing Michael's name once again in front of Video Vanguard was truly cause for celebration. Also we had a great time at a Michael Jackson birthday party held last night, must have been good cause I didn't make it home until 3 am. God Bless you all, Spike Lee, and of course may God continue to bless our lovely angel Michael and his family here on Earth.. Peace..
