The Michael Jackson tributes continue rolling in, both locally and nationally.

*The Village Voice raided its archives and typed up a bunch of stories about MJ and the Jackson 5, which can be found here.

*My colleagues in Houston and Nashville weighed in on memories involving MJ with Mick Jagger and E.T., respectively.

*KDHX's blog has a King of Pop remembrance from Steve Pick and a video from the Funky Butt Brass Band covering "I Want You Back."

*And finally, the same Philippine jail that's revolutionizing prisoner rehabilitation by conducting dance performances already choreographed a tribute to MJ. View this clip -- and its awe-inspiring "Thriller" dance -- after the jump.
