My Halloween Video: I Miss You Michael Jackson!

posted by Beyond Blue

Halloween is an appropriate time to face one’s fears. I have so many of them that I decided to do a fun video and entertain you with a freak show rather than candidly discuss all the things I’m afraid of. You already know about them. So, in the spirit of “The 12 (Bipolar) Days of Christmas,” here’s one that will hopefully make you crack a smile before the goblins get you.
