Yesterday for some reason I recorded the Michael Jackson trial. I have no idea why I did this since my DVR is at a constant 92% full. The one maddening thing about a DVR is how little it actually holds. Think about how many movies, songs and television shows your computer can hold but for some reason the DVR can barely hold a one season worth of a couple of shows. The issue then becomes like picking which show or movie you like best. Do I delete the bacon special or keep that episode of Parks & Rec where Ron Swanson dances with his hat on. I do realize that NBC and Netflix have that same episode, BUT, what happens if they decide to be Netflixian and charge $50 an episode or NBC says no more free shows? Then I am stuck without Ron Swanson dancing in a hat.

So, I am shocked, and possibly blame the cat or tequila for recording the Michael Jackson trial. Before sending the trial into oblivion and getting my 8% back, I took a quick look. You know, one of those lets watch it at triple speed and if anything looks interesting, I will stop. Well, all of a sudden I saw an image and I thought to myself that can't be right. Turns out I was right and it was a picture of a naked and deceased Michael Jackson on an autopsy table. Uggh. Thankfully they did black out the peen. I really did not need to see that photo. I am not sure why they even showed the photo. I think we can all stipulate to the fact that Michael Jackson is dead. I don't need to see photographic proof. I won't believe those stories in The Globe in 30 years that he is drinking buddies with Elvis and Jim Morrison. And even if somehow they needed to show the picture in court, why do I need to see it?
