I've had a really sore back since yesterday - its time to harvest garlic, which means pulling them right out of the ground, which means leaning over lots. I also planted about a billion fennel plants today (definitely around 250), and I've still got about 600 left to plant. Goodness.

I can't stop listening to Maxwell's new song, and that damn "ego" remix by Beyonce on is fuckin' repeat (the video is pretty sexy too). This is the time of year that I work from 7am until 7pm or later and listen to jams all fuckin' day.

Also, I'm really tired of white people trivializing the career of Michael Jackson. Seriously? Shut the fuck up and don't come to me talkin' about them fuckin' kids. My friend Ashalyn said something pretty good:

The only reason so many people assume Michael Jackson is a child molester (besides the sleepovers he had with little boys) is because he doesn’t FIT. He doesn’t fit a gender, he doesn’t fit a sexuality, he doesn’t fit a racial category. Obviously he molested little kids, the reasoning goes, because he’s a freak. That’s just the type of thing someone like him WOULD do.

Whether he did it or not (I wouldn’t be terribly surprised either way), there’s some serious homophobia going on there.

Racism too, in my opinion.

I found out that the last child that accused MJ of molestation admitted to lying, to being pushed by his parental units for money. That kids' family got paid off, and think about it: if your child was molested, which would you want as a parent, a paycheck or jail time for the perp?

The thing about 1. is it implies the molestor is a sociopath, and I think MJ was kind of a gentle soul, and not malicious but kind of delusional and not ready to face adulthood, for the reasons listed in 2. I don't feel qualified to judge whether or not he was a molestor. My 4th grade teacher went to jail on molestation charges, and I love him a lot- he was physically affectionate with kids (hugs, tickling, let us sit on his lap, etc.), but that was just kind of the way our school was (an Arts Magnet in Berkeley) and it never felt "molesty" to me although I could see how that would set off some people's red flags. I think MJ's case is way more complicated for various reasons than your average suspected sex criminal.
