As Jackson couldn’t fluently play any instruments, he would sing and beatbox out how he wanted his songs to sound by himself on tape, layering the vocals, harmonies and rhythm before having instrumentalists come in to complete the songs.

One of his engineers Robmix on how Jackson worked: “One morning MJ came in with a new song he had written overnight. We called in a guitar player, and Michael sang every note of every chord to him. “here’s the first chord first note, second note, third note. Here’s the second chord first note, second note, third note”, etc., etc. We then witnessed him giving the most heartfelt and profound vocal performance, live in the control room through an SM57. He would sing us an entire string arrangement, every part. Steve Porcaro once told me he witnessed MJ doing that with the string section in the room. Had it all in his head, harmony and everything. Not just little eight bar loop ideas. he would actually sing the entire arrangement into a micro-cassette recorder complete with stops and fills.”

Legendary.

A Catholic who doesn’t know how to Feast.

Forgive me for the self-deprecating nature of this post, but all day today this has been bugging me, as it’s the Feast of the Annunciation, and my school goes hard in celebrating this one.

I have absolutely no idea how to celebrate. The idea of feasting is as foreign to me as differential equations. And it used to just bug me a little until I stopped to consider that if I died right now, presuming I end up in Heaven (please, God), I’d probably try to spend eternity awkwardly standing in the corner.

And I know the difference between our human celebrations and concerts and whatnot are infinitely inferior to the joy that’s to be experienced in Heaven, but just the idea of feasting itself just passes over me. =/

Now fasting? Spiritual warfare? Slogging it out in the fight for loving God? I think I’m pretty good with that. But actually realizing that what I fight for, if continued, will ACTUALLY be attained? I just don’t know what to make of it. In my mind I can follow and understand all the way up to judgment day… but after that my mind draws a blank and hits a bunch of white noise, and not because the reward is so great that it renders me speechless… no, I get that. I can’t in any way truly even begin to wrap my head around even the possibility of actually attaining Who it is I seek.

When playing “BS” last night, we called each other heretics instead of the full phrase. “One nine.” ” Heretic! I have all four!”

How do Dominicans keep their habits so clean?

OrthodOXYCLEAN.

Hmm, this makes me realize that I don’t have a reaction GIF for all of the common religious orders… Only Franciscan, Carmelite, and Jesuit.
