this day will go down in history as the day two of the most recognized and revered pop-culture icons died. last night when we got the news that farrah fawcett passed away, it was not so shocking. she had been battling anal cancer for a long time now and she put up a good fight. charlie's angel has finally gone to heaven. she was 62. but when we woke up this morning and got an email that michael jackson had died, we thought it was just a bad joke! we googled it and sure enough, it had just happened: dead at 50 from cardiac arrest.
for kids who grew up in the 70s, "charlie's angels" was THE must-not-miss TV show. and even if farrah fawcett was on the show for only one season, she made the biggest impact. meanwhile, the jackson 5 was one of the biggest musical acts of that decade. we loved their catchy songs. then michael went solo and went on to become the biggest music artist of all time. personally, we think "off the wall" is one of the best albums ever written, produced, and performed.
good-bye, farrah and michael. it's also like saying good-bye to our childhood. may you both rest in peace.
farrah fawcett, 1947-2009
