You’ve listened to the entire first season of the “Yaxzon Jackson” podcast, now literally watch myself, Rollie Hatch, C. LeMar McLean, and Kirk Howle spin our wheels on Dangerous one last time. What are our final thoughts on this album? What does Kirk actually know about college football? How many Jerry Mathers jokes can we get through before we spit up on ourselves like stupid babies? Click play and find out.
Here now, the final two episodes of “Yaxzon Jackson” Season One, in which Rollie and I discuss at length the songs that close Dangerous. Surprisingly we have little to say about a recycled Dionne Warwick ballad and a “Jam” rewrite; thus, discussion turns to Haywood Nelson, college football, the Ramones, our few listeners we know by name, and (of course) multi-instrumentalist Teddy Riley.
Again, thanks for tuning in, and keep your eyes peeled for our self-indulgent wrap up episode where we reflect upon all we’ve accomplished podcasting about a latter day Michael Jackson album. The main difference is we’ll be wearing tuxedos.
Finally, Rollie and I reach the most dismal song on Dangerous and spend two hours trying to avoid talking about it. At least you will finally learn the origin of our friendship and a few interesting facts about Marilu Henner.
Only two more episodes of this grand experiment. Then, of course, our wrap party episode, which will be five hours long I’m sure and guest star several hilarious and notable figures. #yaxxonjackson4life
I bet you thought Rollie Hatch and I were done discussing each individual track on Michael Jackson’s Dangerous. Well that is a bet you have now lost. How does it feel to be a loser?
Below, the two most recent episodes, covering two of the best songs on the album, and two of our best moments of debate are in there somewhere.
Further below, a photo of Jackson’s simian pal Bubbles circa 2009.
“Yaxzon Jackson” soldiers on through Dangerous. Marvel at the link below—it’s your gateway to two hours of discussion about the sixth track, “Can’t Let Her Get Away!”
Highlights: my inability to say “multi-instrumentalist,” Rollie’s ability to receive certified mail in the middle of our podcast, and talk of the infamous MJ/Lisa Marie Presley MTV smooch. Pure sex right in your ear!
Comin’ at ya with a double dose of the “Yaxzon Jackson” podcast. That’s right, two episodes back to back, because my computin’ machine went sunny side up last week and I couldn’t post anything. So technically I’m behind. Technically and every other way.
The good news: at least one entry here covers a Dangerous cut people have actually heard. Imagine that, spending two hours talking about a Michael Jackson song human beings recognize and enjoy!
Thanks for listening.
