The live streams are up and running! Here’s the Jackson Deathmobile, seen at the Fox News Stream loading in his casket! The Celebrity MySpace stream more somberly features a black screen with the words: “ATTENTION ALL MEDIA OUTLETS: The services are expected to begin in 10 minutes.” Whoops, breaking — now they’re showing the Staples Center on what looks like a gorgeous, sunny day for memorializing. Tell your boss you’ve got a lot of work to do and can’t be disturbed: it’s gonna be the party/funeral of the year!
