You don’t have to be a psychic to predict this

I already know what the biggest musical flop of the year 2007 will be. Don’t worry; it’s not a difficult prediction. I just learned that Michael Jackson is back in the studio recording an album:

LONDON Apr 19, 2006 (AP)— Michael Jackson has returned to the studio and plans to release a new album next year for a record label owned by the son of Bahrain’s king.

2 Seas Records, which is owned by Sheik Abdulla bin Hamad Al Khalifa, said Tuesday it had signed an exclusive recording agreement with Jackson, and the new album was tentatively scheduled for release in late 2007.

Jackson, 47, moved to the Gulf state soon after being acquitted of child molestation charges in California last year. The 33-island archipelago is about the size of Rhode Island.

“I am incredibly excited about my new venture and I am enjoying being back in the studio making music,” Jackson said in a statement released in London on behalf of the Bahrain-based record label.

The label which is due to release Jackson’s long-promised Hurricane Katrina benefit single, “I Have This Dream” said British music executive Guy Holmes had been named chief executive of the company. It said Holmes would oversee the making of the new album “and the management of Michael’s other business interests.”

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university.
