The MJ Memorial

At the conclusion of the Michael Jackson memorial, CNN’s camera focused on a teenage girl shedding tears. Strangely, this single image refreshed a memory of an interview with Tim Burton. Tim mentioned how he enjoys watching movies on cable (at the time satellite was not a common option) and how this experience connects him to other viewers watching the same movie. As he got lost in Vincent Price he knew others around the county were with him on this magic movie experience. As he jumped he knew others jumped too. Watching this girl weeping you knew others were weeping too. Quite a remarkable event.
