If there’s one thing you know, it’s that he really loves Michael Jackson.  At first, I thought this was a new street performer in Tuscaloosa. Living here for almost three years, I’ve never seen him out on the streets. It wasn’t until I spoke with someone who has been living here longer than me that I learned he wasn’t new.  It’s said that his last performance was close to three years ago.


There was a time where I laughed at street performers and pretty much made fun of them. In recent years, I’ve learned that these people are just doing what they love. At the end of the day, isn’t that what life is all about?

One day, I hope to catch McFarland Michael and have a conversation with him. Any person that’s this big of a Michael Jackson fan has to be a cool person right?
