Five Minute Posts: Thriller

My "spring break resolution" is to try to get my posting times down. So I'm going to try to do a five-minute post each morning during spring break.

Today's topic is the twenty-fifth anniversary of Thriller. I'm pumped about dancing Superbowl lizards and spontaneous dancing Chinatowners (thanks NYT). One thing I'm not really pumped about? All the remixed on the reissue. Carl and I listened on the way back to Milwaukee the other day, and I gotta admit, I'm not impressed. Anybody heard it?

Still, do yourself and favor and listen to Thriller today. Most of why the reissue is such a disappointment is that the original is such a masterpiece.
