Starting today, the Paley Center will be showing rare and vintage footage of Michael Jackson from TV shows dating back to 1971. We're talking episodes of "The Tonight Show", "The Flip Wilson Show", and the Jackson Five's own show "The Jacksons". Check out the Paley website for dates and times.
It looks like prime time TV is ready to bet on Christian Slater again so ABC is in negotiations with him for a show called "The Forgotten" which is what we thought his last show was called but then we remembered it was "My Own Worst Enemy".
If you know of any SoMa hipsters in SF, tell them to leave some flowers at Malden Alley in remembrance of Karl.
