Black or White



My all-time favorite Michael Jackson video is "Black or White." I especially love watching the faces morphing at the end. Macaulay Culkin, Tyra Banks, and others are featured in it. The video isn't normally aired beyond the face-morphing scene, but this version is the complete 11-minute mini-movie that shows M.J. himself morphing into a black panther at the very end.

happy hour in Africa


These animals have eaten a tad too much of a fermented African fruit that falls from the Marula tree, nicknamed the "elephant tree" because elephants like the fruit so much. There is also a "Amarula" liqueur for humans made with Marula fruit and cream.
