The Funk of 40,000 years
For those of you who are old enough, do you remember Micheal Jackson's Thriller video first aired? Darkness falls across the land, the midnight hour is close at hand
Don't lie, you were scared.
I'll admit it, I was too. I clearly remember it as being the scariest thing that I had ever seen!
Think about it, the scary scene beings with Vincent Price saying this:
Damn! Ya'll ever hear Vincent Price read that? Especially whilst zombies pulling are themselves out of the ground, and their limbs are falling to the ground! That shit is frightening son! And what about the end of the reading when the camera pans and -- BANG -- there's a full screen shot of Michael Jackson in zombie gear!
Creatures crawl in search of blood, to terrorize your neighbourhood
And who ever shalld be found, without the soul for getting down
Must stand and face the hounds of hell and rot inside a corpse's shell
The foul stench is in the air, the funk of 40,000 years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb are closing in to seal your doom
And though you fight to stay alive, your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal, can resist the evil of the Thriller!
I can't wait to have kids and break this video out on them. I just cannot wait!
It's tragic though. Nowadays the only thing scary about Michael Jackson is having a few too many Jesus Juice's at the Neverland Ranch and passing out on the couch. Actually, that's not the scary part. The scary part is waking up in MJ's room -- and he comes to wake you up, dressed in his robe - "Good morning, here's some breakfast!" Fuck!
Anyhow, I was out H'ween club event last night and was ecstatic when they broke this out:
