Not for nothing, but this is an extremely heavy time to be a music blogger, particularly one whose entire output is largely dedicated to R&B/Soul. We understand that the impact of Michael Jackson's death has resulted in an ad nauseum onslaught of related content this past weekend, all over the web. Now, it may seem like we can all get back to "normal" now that we have entered into a new week. But what we've come to understand as "normal" is no longer. There must be a period of adjustment, and that could mean more Jackson-related purging on this website.
With respect to anyone that isn't as affected by Michael's death as the rest of us, with respect to anyone that wants to move forward and shift the focus back to other artists, with respect to anyone that has managed to (even at this early stage) move on--I offer my sincere preemptive apology. Just in case I, or one of my team members goes overboard with Jackson content. The very way we view and contextualize music may be forever changed because of this, and even when the subject isn't Mike, you can guarantee he'll be at the front of our brains every time we post a new entry on SoulBounce.
So, if you perceive we're having trouble getting back to business, please bear with us. Speaking for myself, perhaps 10-12 Michael Jackson blog ideas are dancing around in my brain. I will try to keep it under control. But if I (or we) can't, please understand that this is a catharsis for us, and we can't help but share.
