The Wilde Ride for 09/11/17

As we remember 9/11 while dealing with the recent tragedies of 2017, I wish for us all to feel peace today. If only for a little while, try to give yourself a break from it all with a few quiet moments to let your mind rest… or just a few deep breaths if that’s all you can fit in. Sending you love today and everyday.  Jennifer


Just in time for Halloween, there’s a new Michael Jackson album called “Michael Jackson SCREAM” on the way. It’s a collection of “13 of his all-time most electrifying and danceable tracks including ‘Ghosts,’ ‘Torture,’ ‘Thriller,’ and ‘Dirty Diana.’” But the track everyone is talking about is “Blood on The Dance Floor X Dangerous,” a newly-created mash-up of five songs from remixer The White Panda.


We knew the movie “It” was going to be big… and it is. It’s broken all kinds of records!

Chocolate scientists have just discovered the first new natural chocolate in 80 years… and it’s pink. Ruby chocolate comes from a special type of cocoa bean found on the Ivory Coast, Ecuador and Brazil.

George Michael’s song “Fantasy” was released as a b-side in 1990 and later as a bonus track on the 2011 deluxe version of the “Faith” album. But it was originally supposed to be on the “Listen Without Prejudice” album and George felt that it never got it’s due. So before his death last year, when he was looking for the lead single of the reissue of the Listen Without Prejudice album, he called his good friend Nile Rogers and asked him to rework, Fantasy… so Nile reproduced the track with some of the alternate vocal takes and provided the funky guitar rhythms and this new version will be the featured track on the deluxe version of Listen Without Prejudice Vol 1 / MTV Unplugged, which is set for release on 20 October. I love it (of course) but hearing his voice still makes me sad.

Who else had a Palm Pilot in the 90’s? I had two of them and I think I still have them both in a box somewhere. I loved my LifeDrive! You fellow Palm lovers might be interested to hear that there is a new Palm device coming out next year. Chances are it’ll be a little different than the old models and run on Android because Palm’s OS was sold to LG. And there’s no word if it’s still going to be a pocket computer, or updated to a phone, or what… so we’ll have to just wait and see how a new Palm device stands out in a world of pretty awesome smartphones. And I’m not updating my Samsung Galaxy S7 until I find out…


Say prayers and send good vibes out to everyone in the path of Hurricane Irma. And send peace to Irma too… may she chill out, move on, and head out to sea. #CalmIrma
