The great circle of life inextricably wheeled again this morning, Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett passing into the everafter while the Japanese videogames industry appeared to emerge from the ashes. So poignant. So fitting.

Here’s last week’s figures. We love you, Michael.

    I got nothin’ but respect for the man….but have you guys heard the rumor?

    They’re gonna melt Michael Jackson’s ashes and then start putting them into specially marked toys so the kids can play with him for a change…

    Was shocked when I heard, Rest in peace Michael. I never was a fan but he had a few good songs I liked.
