michael_jackson_performingIt's the last dance for Michael Jackson and your chance to see it begins now.

Tickets for "This Is It" – the documentary that features footage from the pop icon's rehearsals for the 50-show series in London – go on sale Sunday.

The film debuts simultaneously in 15 cities around the globe, including New York, Los Angeles, London and Berlin.

"'This Is It' may go down as the greatest concert no one got a chance to see," the movie's director Kenny Ortega said. "But with this film we get a rare portrait of Michael as he prepares for his final curtain call."

Sandy-Houston   September 27th, 2009 8:42 pm ET

Hi Everyone,
There's a big write up in our Houston Chronicle aboutConrad Murray. Go Go to chron.com It's in the front page section. I haven't had a chance to read it yet.


janice   September 27th, 2009 8:42 pm ET

I got mine.....and I'm going to 8 different showings! Oh my, I can't wait! I still cannot accept his death....I'm not sure I ever will. We love you forever, Michael. We will preserve and protect your legacy and continue to fight for the truth being told about what a wonderful and loving soul you were and how many billions of lives you touched and for some of us almost single-handedly shaped our views on almost all cultural issues! You were the greatest. I pray that you are at peace now...


mary u from ohio   September 27th, 2009 8:44 pm ET

I keep jumping back and forth form Blog to blog... .I'm not going to stay on long......


michael armstrong sr.   September 27th, 2009 8:45 pm ET

Hey this is so cool an oncore to Michael what a great way to say goodbuy but never forgot.


XANDER PRICE   September 27th, 2009 9:01 pm ET

JUSTICE FOR A GREAT MAN AND GREAT ENTERTAINER. LONG WILL HIS MEMORY LIVE ON.


Sandy-Houston   September 27th, 2009 9:16 pm ET

The article shows CM definitely had two sides to his life...profesional and a troubled personal life.


SuzieCanada   September 27th, 2009 9:24 pm ET

Sandy, I wonder what the rest of his life is going to be like...


Maria G   September 27th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

Got my tickets going to see it Oct 31 !!!


Barbara   September 27th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

Everyone got tickets. Yay!!!!!


SuzieCanada   September 27th, 2009 9:27 pm ET

I honestly don't care about his personal or professional life. I only care about WHO he MURDERED. Let's not forget that he DID murder Michael Jackson.


Sandy-Houston   September 27th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

Suzie Canada
He sure "got around" didn't he!

I got a ticket too although I was crying a few days ago saying it was too soon to see it! But I just have to see it on the big screen to get the true experience of his talent. I've never been to one of his concerts.


Maria G   September 27th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

Sandy-Houston
Same here I want to see it on the big screen surrounded by his fans to try to get as close to a concert "feeling" atmosphere as possible. Since he had not toured in the U.S. in years , this will be special.

As for Murray's clean record. It does not change the fact that he did wrong in Michael's case.


SuzieCanada   September 27th, 2009 9:50 pm ET

Yes Sandy, he sure did "get around". Sounds like a real charmer πŸ˜€
I get very upset when I think of what this man did, and the fact that he's still free. I hope not for long.


Maria G   September 27th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

Sherry, I wounder if the tickets are going to sell well here in the U.S. since he had not toured here in years and was blackballed. His music was not allowed to be played on the radio stations for ten years from what I have read. You know the saying out of sight out of mind. But he has a really large fan base in foreign countries though? So I am sure the film will do great in the long run.


Sandy-Houston   September 27th, 2009 10:03 pm ET

It's playing at several theaters here in Houston. I didn't have any problems getting tickets.


Lori Quebec Canada   September 27th, 2009 10:14 pm ET

Maria G September 27th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

Got my tickets going to see it Oct 31 !!!
______________________________________________________

Lori-Justice for Michael-
Be sure and read the Houston Chronicle article about CM. It's in today's edition.


pat davis   September 27th, 2009 10:39 pm ET

Hi All,

Yeah, a new blog!

Yeah, I got my tickets!

Yeah, I FINALLY watched Michael Jackson Live in Bucharest! Wow, magnificent. What a show! I saw The Bad Tour in 1988 which was unbelievable, but this concert left me speechless!

If that doesn't prove Michael Jackson is the Greatest Entertainer that ever lived, nothing will! AWESOME!


Lori - Justice For Michael   September 27th, 2009 10:39 pm ET

Will do – Thanks Sandy

JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL


pat davis   September 27th, 2009 10:54 pm ET

I really hope that Human Nature clip is left out of this film. Like I said befor it was obvious that was not a good day for Michael. I don't want to see that footage on the big screen.


Lori - Justice For Michael   September 27th, 2009 11:11 pm ET

Did anyone receive their "reminder email" ??

JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL


sarah   September 27th, 2009 11:14 pm ET

i did LORI....


jacqueline   September 27th, 2009 11:17 pm ET

I did Lori


Lori - Justice For Michael   September 27th, 2009 11:18 pm ET

I didn't get reminded until after I purchased my tickets...

JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL


Victoria J   September 27th, 2009 11:19 pm ET

@ Pat, I went back and took another look and listen to Michael and the Human Nature clip. I don't think that was a bad day per se and that is what rehearsals are all about...they are not all perfect days. His voice is lower, on key, though a little shaky, but then he was moving, working out some dance/movements for that particular part and he really seems to be in command. The actual dress rehearsal, the very last scene, we hear a very clear voice, right on pitch and very Michael Jackson. I was impressed. Michael was 50 and I am not sure how much he had been using his voice for the past several years. It is an instrument that has to be used, warmed up, etc. which Michael, who had formal voice lessons as well, did religiously for his performaces. I am just saying, his is an older, richer, mature voice and I am sure all the pieces were pitched lower...but I thought it was lovely. And guess what, Rolling Stone said his voice "shines" in this piece!


Heidi   September 27th, 2009 11:19 pm ET

Hi everyone,

Who is going on Tuesaday night?


Sandy-Houston   September 27th, 2009 11:20 pm ET

jacqueline   September 27th, 2009 11:30 pm ET

Its going to be totally AWESOME I can't wait


Lucero (Mexico)   September 27th, 2009 11:31 pm ET

Hi bloggers πŸ™‚
You are very lucky. You got the tickets.
I'll be patient. I'm trying to get it. πŸ™‚ .

This is it
I'm so sad, because some people compare MJ in that footage to MJ from 20 years ago. I think at 50, he looks good!!

Good night and sweet dreams!! πŸ™‚

MEXICO LOVES MJ!!


jacqueline   September 27th, 2009 11:32 pm ET

He does Look AWESOME!


jacqueline   September 27th, 2009 11:35 pm ET

Well its that time I must say Good night all sleep well
and talk soon


pat davis   September 27th, 2009 11:35 pm ET

Lori,

I recieved the email, it's so cool! It's almost like its coming from Michael himself.


pat davis   September 27th, 2009 11:42 pm ET

Victoria,

Thanks for that perspective. I think I am so afraid of the media looking for something that they can use against him in his final curtain call.

I agree he's 50 years of age, he hasn't been performing for quite a few years, and it was just a rehearsal. I'm just so nervous about what this movie may reveal, yet I can't wait to see it!


Jessica   September 27th, 2009 11:47 pm ET

You guys are all soo lucky. My small town in Canada isn't going to show it , even though it's a 7 plex theatre. Have to see if next larger city an hour away will have it.


Jessica   September 27th, 2009 11:49 pm ET

Is the picture at the top new or old. I really can't tell. If it's new he looks fantastic. Does anyone know for sure?


sarah   September 27th, 2009 11:52 pm ET

picture is old, i think it is from those tours he did...


sherry   September 27th, 2009 11:54 pm ET

hey everyone just stopping by b4 i go to bed


sarah   September 27th, 2009 11:55 pm ET

hi sherry


Sandy-Houston   September 27th, 2009 11:57 pm ET

I will keep in mind while watching this movie that it is of course a rehearsal and Michael is older and had not prepared fora tour in many years. And I expect that our media will find plenty wrong with it.
But his fans know that this is Michael and even in rehearsal it will be good. This will be an experience that we haven't seen before–the genius at work.


pat davis   September 28th, 2009 12:01 am ET

Jessica,

I think the photo is an old one. Yummy, he looks good enough to eat (but don't tell my boyfriend that)!

Seriously, I LOVE those action shots of Michael, what a performer! The photographer definately caught him in the moment! He looks so HOT!


sherry   September 28th, 2009 12:01 am ET

hi sarah


Barbara   September 28th, 2009 12:01 am ET

If anyone has complaints about the way Michael dances or sings in This Is It-then they are welcome to go out and try to do a better job themselves.

"When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself ..."

Love you Michael


Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 12:01 am ET

Hi everyone
Sandy I think we are all going to be shocked at his performance for his age, They arre saying this was going to be some come back. We know Michael... Everything perfect for his fans.


Victoria J   September 28th, 2009 12:02 am ET

Pat D, of course, we do not want to see anyone find something wrong with Michael now. He is not with us anymore, let him rest in peace. Something tells me, his genuis will be seen even if any of his weaknesses are shown. I really do not think they would release film that maybe even his fans might would question the ulterior motives of AEG. The most troubling observation for me so far with the clips is his weight. I have read conflicting reports about his weight...one that he was 110 to 112 pounds (that is grossly underweight for a man of his height) and then I read another doctor said he was "skinny," but not underweight. We have seen Michael's weight go up and down and he has looked healthier to me in years past even at 120 during the 2005 trial, he appeared very thin. The last trial really, really affected him, I think. But his face...it does seem to glow and he is smiling. He had so much more to give...I think we will be reminded of that sorrowfully.


sherry   September 28th, 2009 12:03 am ET

wow, that dr. sure has been busy,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,


pat davis   September 28th, 2009 12:03 am ET

Sandy....I agree 100%!


Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 12:03 am ET

Well said Barbara. I'd like to see them try


Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 12:04 am ET

What do you mean Sherry about the Dr


sherry   September 28th, 2009 12:05 am ET

dr.murray and the article of him fathering like 8 kids


Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 12:05 am ET

8 kids? what article?


sherry   September 28th, 2009 12:06 am ET

"He has fathered at least seven children with six women over the years, most of them out of wedlock, according to a deposition he gave in a 1998 "


sherry   September 28th, 2009 12:06 am ET

" in his youth was arrested at least twice on charges brought by female companions, once for fraudulent breach of trust and once for domestic violence, though never convicted. "


Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 12:08 am ET

So now it looks like the garbage on him is getting exposed bought time


sherry   September 28th, 2009 12:09 am ET

Barbara!~ I totally agree with you,,,,,,19,,,,,,,,,35,,,,,,50 he;'s still the king og pop fopr a REASON,,,, if people talk smack they cant see whats in front of there eyes!~


Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 12:10 am ET

Thanks Sherry gonna go read that brb


sherry   September 28th, 2009 12:10 am ET

catch the link b4 they take it off again


spirit   September 28th, 2009 12:10 am ET

"This is it" is going to bring so much emotion... pain, LOVE, sorrow, joy, loss & what not... Michael looks gorgeous in these rehearsals to say the least... Yes it was to be a hell of a comeback... & Michael performing after so may years... It would be the greatest ever movie in the world of music... Only wish, Michael was here... Miss him sooooooo much... Watching him on the big screen won't be easy... God bless him always!

So I'm all set for the agony & the ecstasy which Michael's final rehearsals gonna bring...
All my love & prayers for him...

Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 12:25 am ET

I hope they take this Dr down hard. There's gotta be something against him somewhere else they could use against him. He's a snake you can see it on his face


Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 12:26 am ET

I saw that on the site. I'm considering it probably should they are going to sell fast


sarah   September 28th, 2009 12:26 am ET

sherry   September 28th, 2009 12:30 am ET

you too Patty


pat davis   September 28th, 2009 12:31 am ET

Victoria J,

Once again you hit the nail on the head! His weight is troubling, but Michael was always thin. Also the rehearsals I'm sure were hours and hours a day. That alone will make you shed a few pounds. I'm just curious to see what they have put together for us fans. I lost sleep last night hoping This Is It wouldn't sell out. I'm just hoping to see Michael in his last few days/hours happy, doing what he does best. He really did have so much more to give to the world. He was just a special human being.


sarah   September 28th, 2009 12:32 am ET

bye sherry


Maria G   September 28th, 2009 12:32 am ET

I ordered my This Is It disc through Amazon a couple of days ago and I ordered my tickets and got my conformation. I just have to remember to take the conformation print out with me. (As if i would forget to take it LOL).

Listening to "Speechless" right now.

Hi Marin,

Sorry to hear that you can't get the movie in Indonesia. I'm sure there will be lots websites with footage, and of course all of us that are fortunate enough to see will tell you all about it.

Seeing that everything else is coming out so fast, maybe the DVD will come out sooner than December.


Toni   September 28th, 2009 1:29 am ET

I was first in line this morning and it was an incredible experience. As people started to line up behind me and we all discovered that we were all there for MJ tickets. It was like there was an instant bond. Like we were family in a second, but it was stronger than that, like there was a deep love between us. We were all just looking in each others eyes with such emotion in our common bond because of Michael Jackson. Like we all just understood. I got my tickets and left, but as I walked away I almost went back in to stand with them longer. I got to my van and just cried because the energy was so strong. I was overwhelmed. I couldnt wait to get home and share it with all of you. My tickets are for October 28th at 9:15pm EST. I almost got the first show but I want my kids to go with me, so I figured i'd wait 'til evening and then after I can come home and get on facebook with all of you and talk about it!! LOL! If any of you have tickets at same time, let me know so I know others are watching the same time as me and can feel connected to you.

I love you all. God bless you.

i'm very tcouch and grateful for this message..

Yes we are like family.. because for one reason.. it's Michael Jackson


Brigida, Italy   September 28th, 2009 6:14 am ET

Good morning you lucky people!

Seems I'm one of the lost people here without a chance to see the movie in a theatre and have to wait for the DVD.

Larry, thanks for the new blogs πŸ™‚
Have to go to work, read you all in the evening, keep the good things up!


mariau   September 28th, 2009 6:18 am ET

Brigida, Italy – you are not alone πŸ™‚ i asked the local cinema here, they said i can buy the ticket exactly on the primier date of This is it Movie. 😦
i'm totally upset.. i know this is history again of Michael and i want to be part of this history..

How are you today? πŸ™‚


spirit   September 28th, 2009 6:39 am ET

MaryRM   September 28th, 2009 8:16 am ET

Hi everyone – just dropping a note that you won't hear much from me over the next week or 2 – busy time of year plus several charity things – next week the Free the Children Me to We Day. I will try to at least read everyone's posts but I didn't get past midnight on this one. but I'm excited, getting to see the show twice, Nov 1 and 5. I still hope they extend it due to demand but we will see.

You are all in my thoughts and prayers along with the Jackson family, who have been in my heart and had my respect for decades.

later folks

Oooops morning, Geeeez can't spell in the morning I guess. Did everyone get tickets?


pat davis   September 28th, 2009 9:36 am ET

Hi All,

I've been reading some comments and I'm dissapointed to hear that This Is It is only being shown in certain parts of the world. I thought they said the movie was going to be shown worldwide!

I purchased my tickets yesterday....five of us will be going on Oct. 28Th@4:15 (shortly after my daughter gets out of school). My city is so lame there was NO line.

Does anyone know how ticket sales are going? I'm wondering if the movie has sold out anywhere yet, or is it to soon. Since they seem to be selling at a slow pace here in Springfield, Mass., I think I'm going to go and purchase two more tickets for a later date just so me and my "other half " can enjoy the movie by ourselves.


Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 9:45 am ET

Pat that is the same time I am going 10/28 at 4:15. Hopefully yhe blogs are still going then so we can all meet after seeing the movie. I'm sure we will all need eachothers support after seeing it.

Here in WI they are showing it only at a couple theaters and then only for a couple days.
Haven't heard that it has sold out yet. Wouldn't that be great. I know I had to go to my cinema to get my tickets. Couldn't get through online the site was too busy. It would be nice to hear how sales are going wouldn't it


pat davis   September 28th, 2009 10:15 am ET

Patty,

Wow, I'm shocked someone (on the blog) is actually going the same day and time as me! Yeah, we definately have to meet after the movie for support and to share our views! Looking forward to that!

dr.murray and the article of him fathering like 8 kids

It is eerie to think he is reproducing himself...... lol


Luda   September 28th, 2009 10:32 am ET

Did you read the whole article of the Daily New?

The picture is beautiful!


Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 10:33 am ET

Luda which article?


pat davis   September 28th, 2009 10:42 am ET

How did a guy like that end up working for Michael Jackson?

Eight kids, with different " baby mama's ", and all kinds of MAJOR financial issues. His background alone would have been a red flag for me. How did this creep really end up working as Michael's personal physician? I don't see Michael employing someone with that baggage.


Snuggy   September 28th, 2009 10:45 am ET

Patty where in WI are you from?


Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 11:00 am ET

Snuggy I am 45 mins west of Madison in Baraboo WI


Maria G   September 28th, 2009 11:13 am ET

I hope the tickets sell really good here in the U.S. but he was not allowed to play his music or promote his albums here that I am afraid many fans just moved on to other entertainers. But time will tell. I hope the media gives us some numbers soon on how the sales are going.


Snuggy   September 28th, 2009 11:15 am ET

I'm originally from WI (Eau Claire) and used to live in Madison. I know where Baraboo is. I think Madison is one of the best and most beautiful cities in our awesome country!


Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 11:18 am ET

Snuggy that is so cool. Small world. Where are you now?


Snuggy   September 28th, 2009 11:21 am ET

I'm in NC – Blowing Rock. I just found out last night that Sandy is from NC and of course Nicole, but I don't know where Nicole is from.


Snuggy   September 28th, 2009 11:24 am ET

Patty, I've been following the blogs for awhile but haven't participated much since you all seem to "know" eachother and I just check in from time to time. But I have always enjoyed your contributions...and missed you when you weren't on here...there was a major element missing when you weren't here. So....nice to meet you!


Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 11:27 am ET

Thank you snuggy. Most of us met on here just like you. You are a part of us as well stick with us. Alot of us go to Jacquelyn's chat room in the evening. Join us that would be awesome. We are all here for the smae reason Michael


Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 11:30 am ET

Snuggy most of us are on the Jermaine blog. Come on over


lindafromnewyork   September 28th, 2009 11:32 am ET

Hi Everyone
The Las Vegas Event that a group of us from the LKL blog are planning for August 29, 2010–for Michael is coming along very nicely. If you have not joined the Facebook Group, please do-So that you can be aware of what is going on.

Facebook–Michael Jackson Las Vegas Fan Tribute


Snuggy   September 28th, 2009 11:32 am ET

I just started going to Rhonda's site. Where is Jacquelyn's chat room?


pat davis   September 28th, 2009 12:08 pm ET

Maria G,

It wasn't that Michael or his music was banned, Rap music came into play and took over the music industry. When this happened REAL music/artist like Michael Jackson got throw aside and eventually forgotten. Unfortunately Rap made such a big impact ($$$$) in the music industry, it caused the sale of music like Michael's to take a back seat. This has a lot to do with our radio DJ's, another form of media. Whatever they play the public listens to and considers good! What they don't play gets tossed aside. They brainwash us with what they want us to hear.


pat davis   September 28th, 2009 12:15 pm ET

Linda,

What is the Las Vegas Tribute all about?

I would like to participate in everything that has to do with Michael Jackson. Right now I am a Dot, I signed the petition against bad media, I also signed the petition for August 29th to be a day of celebration all over the world in the name of Michael Jackson. But I'm not on facebook, this blog is my first time actually communciating online, other than my email. Could you tell me more about Las Vegas?


Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 12:35 pm ET

Pat. Are you on FB? If you are join our group. Las Vegas Fan Tribute.
We are olanning a tribute for his birthday in Vegas next year


VICKI   September 28th, 2009 1:04 pm ET

Pat @ 12:08...I am at lunch so have to be quick, but you are very right about the media and the DJ's. The Invincible Album is an example. I have listened to it on-line (haven't bought that one yet) and there are at least three songs on there that should have made the top ten, if not number ones. Two very nice R&B numbers and the one with the guitarist, Carlos, is just beautiful. It was not marketed, obviously, and the music reviews were not good either...not even on the songs that were good. Michael was right about the marketing. Did you hear that music critic from some big paper in NY on Larry King during the funeral. He said Michael would have made a huge comeback, because people are falling in love again with his style of music. Always sad to think of what could have been...


pat davis   September 28th, 2009 1:12 pm ET

VICKI,

I bought invisible when it first came out, my two favorites are Butterflies and of course You Rock My World. I hardly ever heard it on the radio. I took it upon myself to buy the CD.

Michael was about to make the biggest comeback in music history, this is why I think his death is more than just an accident. There is much more to this than meets the eye. That's why the investigation is so hush, hush.


Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 1:24 pm ET

Pat that's so funy you should say that I am listening to Butterflies right now. What a beautiful song. That voice.....


sarah   September 28th, 2009 1:24 pm ET

hi every1...what new ....


Alex G   September 28th, 2009 1:25 pm ET

I can't wait to see this!


VICKI   September 28th, 2009 1:28 pm ET

By the way, Pat, I am the Victoria, from yesterday. For some reason at work this blog comes up with Vicki...I guess (can't remember) I had to register differently or something on this computer. I forgot about You Rock My World is on that album...how could I have forgotten that because I love the short film! I love it when Michael falls on the floor at the 30th Anniversary concert when Chris Tucker comes out with he and Asher and does his MJ moves. Such joy ... in the little things ...


pat davis   September 28th, 2009 1:44 pm ET

VICKI,

Okay Vicki, what do you prefer Vicki or Victoria? Yes that scene with Chris Tucker was so funny! I love to see Michael laugh and smile. I don't think he had enough of those moments in the last years of his life.

Patty,

Were you seriously listening to Butterflies? Wow, Michael's magic is Amazing. He is definately still here through song.


pat davis   September 28th, 2009 1:46 pm ET

Patty,

I'm not on FB, but that is definately on todays to do list!

I want to be a part of everything that has to do with Michael's legacy!


Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 1:49 pm ET

Brigida, Italy   September 28th, 2009 2:43 pm ET

Hi you all! Back from work and sorry for the late answers now ^_^

Marin – I feel with you, we can cry together!

Mariau – thank you, I think we three will enjoy the DVD then but I'm still hoping to find a cinema near my place to show it. Perhaps they will sell tickets the same day they show it. Hopefully...

stu – in the present case, I should take a ship in the morning to Naples, then the train to Rome and it takes until evening and after the movie perhaps I have to sleep there... just too much money also and I can't leave here also for my job. Two days... with all my love and struggling for Michael's movie but I can't.

Somebody can tell me how many times one can watch a DVD before it is broken? ^____^ this will be the fate of the movie-DVD then!


mary u from ohio   September 28th, 2009 2:45 pm ET

That's what i say What????

Prayera C.   September 28th, 2009 2:58 pm ET

My family and I will be going to see the This Is It movie about Michael Jackson. I have composed a tribute that hopefully I will get into the right hands. I've thought about it, and I want his family to have it. He was a wonderful man who I know that I will see in heaven one day.

All I ever want to say is, "I appreciated his musical genius. It was his greatest gift to the world and I love him very much. RIP King of Pop.

I am at internet cafe on Vancouver Island and have 8 min. left on time.

How are you Mariau

Did you get some tickets.

My son was invited to a special preview screening on Oct. 27th and he invited me to go with him! Fantastic.


Lora Ottawa Canada   September 28th, 2009 5:32 pm ET

Lora Ottawa Canada   September 28th, 2009 5:34 pm ET

Michael is still HOT news! Yeah!!!

Travelling around Vancouver Island and listening to MJ cds......having lots of fun.

I have missed a lot of blogging will try and catch up when I get home next week.


Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 5:35 pm ET

How's the trip going Lora. Thanks for stopping by.


Maria G   September 28th, 2009 5:48 pm ET

I will try to check and see if I can find where I read about Michael's music not being played . So please don't quote me on that until I find the link. I hated it when tabloids did that and now I did the same.


pat davis   September 28th, 2009 6:13 pm ET

Patty,

Michael should definately be #1. I just voted, it wasn't in English but clicked on Stem and left my email. More good stuff about Michael! I'm lovin' It!

Brigida, Italy 4:55 pm ET

Small world – I was with my family in Italy in May and we stayed in Sorrento. We visited Capri but didn't get to Ischia. My husband is Italian heritage, his parents came from the Marche, and my daughter spent a semester at a school in Rosetto d'egli Abruzzi in 2007. I visited her at that time and fell in love with Italy.

We are all in love with Italy and will go back as often as money allows, about every 2 years if possible.


Brigida, Italy   September 28th, 2009 7:23 pm ET

Hi MaryRM! Big mistake visiting Capri and not Ischia πŸ˜€ I'wait for you then! Feel free to tell me, I will show you the most beautiful places.

Good night all, sleep well then and dream of Michael among the angels!

gigi   September 28th, 2009 7:31 pm ET

Hi everyone,

If you're interested you can watch the Michael Jackson Tribute, that Londell McMillan gave on Saturday at the Congressional Black on youtube. I just got finished watching it, it's about 2 hrs long. I found it very interesting and informative. There were several different speakers on the panel. If you would like to watch the video you can go to the Congressional Black Caucus website and click on the ALC'09 link and on the right hand side there is a sub menu. Click on ALC 09 Video it will take you to the CBCF youtube channel, and the video is called Michael Jackson Tribute.

Congress Woman Watson from LA, California made a very important announcement in regards to the death investigation. I tried my best to transcribe what she said about the investigation, but you can watch for yourselves on the CBCF Youtube channel.

"I want you to know that that the L.A. community, the state of California and the nation are all concerned about Michael Jackson's death. In contact with meet with the family and the people who handle his career, we've all meet. I assured them that anything untoward about Michael will come out into the open. Because, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is involved in this lengthy investigation. So just know that you might be sitting there and saying what is taking so long? They are studying every intricate detail about his life and his death and what happened afterward. So just know that in a short while justice will out and justice will be done. Have Faith."

They discussed Michael's charity work, personal experience they had with Michael, the pain that Michael endured, the Media, Michael's business sense, Michael's creative work, Michael's family, the Sony Catalogue was mentioned several times. Jesse Jackson mentioned that "No artist ever in the history of music amassed the a catalog of Michael Jackson, and Michael ran his catalog. The pressure to take his catalog was immense..."

At the end a the video where was a question and answered period. A young 20 year old kid at the end of the clip asked McMillan a very very intelligent and observant question about Michael's Sony Catalogue, Tommy Mottolla his contract with Sony and the connection between that and the trumped up false charges against Michael. McMillan was very impressed by that question that young man asked. Because of the confidentiality of things McMillan tried to answer on some of the things that is already publicly known. I don't know if McMillan was still answering that question, because that was the end of the video, I would definitely like to hear what else he said in regards to that question.

Shawn Robertson anchor from Access Hollywood was on the panel spoke as well. She asked everyone to do something after she spoke. Shawn mentioned so often especially in the entertainment business, that people are now talking about is philanthropy, and people are say Michael wrote the soundtrack to our lives, and how much he meant to us. And she said that this is something we've should have been talking about before. And she said the reason that we don't talk about it, and she herself will have debates with management all the time saying let's not focus on that let's focus on this. And Shawn said that the management tells her that this is what the public wants. That's what's going to sell magazines and if it's a choice between a cover of the horrible things a person is going through or a cover that is showing the good things about a person, people are going to buy the one that has the horrible cover. And Shawn said the media is feeding off of what "They" think we the public want to hear. And she said that the more we voice how we don't want to hear that stuff, you want to hear more positive stories, you want to hear what makes a person great. The more we start saying that, the more we will start to see a reflection of that when we turn on the television. Shawn said that they think that all the public wants to hear is the bad stuff and that we're interested in nothing else. Shawn wished that Michael had heard about all the wonderful things when he was still here. She wished that Michael was still here when people started to talk about all of his philanthropy, and wished he knew how much we miss him. Shawn asked that we start letting our voices be heard, and start calling CNN, Access Hollywood, NBC, MSNBC, start calling all of our shows and say "I don't want to hear that, I'm going to turn you off if you're reporting this, or I'm not going to buy that magazine cover if your reporting that, start letting your voices be heard, so the next time people will know how much you care are about them before they're gone."


Iva   September 28th, 2009 8:19 pm ET

Hi all, just want to comment to Marin-Indonesia, i think they'll screen it here in Indonesia..if you see the schedule, they put Indonesia on the map on 29th but it's just no preorder ticket like in any other countries.
I've asked Sony Indonesia about this but no response from them yet..so i guess on 29th, just be prepared to stand in line πŸ™‚


Iva   September 28th, 2009 8:30 pm ET

and thanks Gigi for the info..wow..this kind of event should have been aired all around the world..the media has been bad to Michael, we need to start telling them that we want no more!


ERNIE C.   September 28th, 2009 8:43 pm ET

I JUST READ AN ARTICLE ON THESE BLOGS AGAIN THAT SAID 'THE KING OF POP' WAS MICHAELS SELF~DUBBED NAME. THAT'S NOT TRUE. ELIZABETH TAYLOR CALLED HIM THAT ONCE AND THE NICKNAME JUST TOOK HOLD. SHE WAS RIGHT THOUGH. MICHAEL WAS AND ALWAYS WILL BE THE KING OF POP. THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS THAT MICHAEL WENT DURING HIS LIFE REMINDS US THAT EVEN THOUGH WE MIGHT HAVE SOME FLAWS TO DEAL WITH WE CAN STILL ACT THE A LOVING CARING HUMAN BEING.


Iva   September 28th, 2009 9:15 pm ET

Yeah we know that Ernie C, it's just that Media seems to just ignore that fact..sadly..:( i bet the article is from one of the tabloids..

does anyone know about the arvizos right now?


gigi   September 28th, 2009 10:24 pm ET

This is a letter I've been emailing to several networks. I've also wrote to Dateline expressing my disappointment in them and Shmuley airing private conversations of Michael Jackson.

Sent this to CNN and wrote an email to Geraldo at Large. It's basically a show idea and me voicing that I will not stand for the bias coverage against Michael. And if they continue I will not be watch their network again.

A panel discussion with Tom Mesearu, Aphrodite Jones, Geraldine Hughes, and Mary Fisher. The REAL COMPLETE TRUTH BEHIND Michael Jackson cases, exposing the CONSPIRATORS & THE EXTORTIONISTS that surrounded Michael in life and death. It is time the Media start telling the TRUTH. I will not stand for the continued bias coverage against Michael Jackson. If this continues I WILL NOT watch your network again.

Even questioning Michael feeling on Madonna....... Michael said Shes not a nice person.... .. Michael is a gentleman... and he wants his girl to be a lady... i guess Madonna is to forward.... So Michael's a gentleman and wants a lady... Michael old fashion... He probably holds the car door open for his girl.... My kind of Man....


marin-indonesia   September 29th, 2009 1:59 am ET

@ iva, hallo.... makasih buat infonya.... also apa kabar? seneng bisa chat ama sesama orang indonesia di blog LKL. i'm desperate to find information about "this is it" movie, i asked studio 21 bandung and they don't have any information about it. i thought i really don't have an opportunity to watch it. but since you give me this valuable information i'll be in a front line to get the ticket yaaaayyy!!! . thank you so much iva!! πŸ˜€
