That's not entirely accurate. You have to be alive to be nominated, but you can die after you were nominated and still win. For all we know the guy was nominated already.

But I don't think the selection committee knows what Twitter or possibly the internet is.

They could of course change the rule because they love Michael Jackson.

I just acquired an old iPhone 2G, and am seeking a case for it since it slips out of my hands. I happened upon this thing:



It's called the "Special Memories Edition." Oy.

Alternatively, there's the chococase:



It's funny because it looks like something that it isn't.

Yeah, yeah. :p In fact, it also seems to come in strawberry/pink...

Because it is Homade chocolate. I can't tell if that should be Home-made or Ho-made, but it's certainly possibly the latter.
