Susan   August 30th, 2009 5:59 pm ET

This was a awesome tribute. It was a good idea that a lot of people actually got involved and not just stand and watch. But with "Thriller" who can just standstill. The music moves you. Thank you MJ.


angelwings   August 30th, 2009 6:08 pm ET

hi everyone
after seeing this video Michael would be proud........I just wished it was all a very bad dream silly me I was so hoping it was a stunt gone bad ............miss him so very much


Janice   August 30th, 2009 6:24 pm ET

Now, that's what I'm talking about! Show us how he is being positively celebrated and remembered around the world.

A great entertainer. Michal's legacy will live forever!

The whole performance, as recorded by TV Azteca, can be seen on youtube as "Thriller – Mexico rompe Record Guiness" (6:50).


tatiana   August 30th, 2009 7:40 pm ET

Today was another tribute in mexico city with beat it, there was many people too


Barbara   August 30th, 2009 7:44 pm ET

What a great tribute to Michael. Wish I could have been there too, however my eight year old niece and I did our own Thriller moves at home, to his video-in Michael's honour.


Mary U from Ohio   August 30th, 2009 7:49 pm ET

the positive comes from Michaels Fans


Mary U from Ohio   August 30th, 2009 7:53 pm ET

I love How Shy Michael is on his interviews.


Jacquelyn   August 30th, 2009 8:03 pm ET

Cocovelvet

Yes it is. They are tallying it up now, and it will be revealed one day next week.


angelwings   August 30th, 2009 8:06 pm ET

I hope Micheal knows he was loved...........love and will miss your music


Maria   August 30th, 2009 8:14 pm ET

Speaking of interviews, I discovered a new one on youtube – "Michael Jackson Newly Released Interview" (part I and II). It's Michael talking to Brett Ratner about what he loves most – music and movies.


ELIZABETH   August 30th, 2009 8:16 pm ET

THANKS TO THE PEOPLE WHO PUT 'THRILLER' ON AND TO THE FANS WHO WENT TO SEE IT. IT WAS A LOVELY TRIBUTE TO A LOVELY MAN. I HOPE 'THRILLER' GOES ON THE ROAD. I WANT IT TO PLAY IN MY HOMESTATE OF INDIANA. IN FACT I THINK INDIANA WOULD BE A GOOD PLACE FOR IT'S FIRST STATESIDE OPENING. AFTERALL THAT IS WHERE IT ALL BEGAN 51 YEARS AGO. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MICHAEL. WE SORELY MISS YOU. YOU WERE IRREPLACEABLE.


Mary U from Ohio   August 30th, 2009 8:43 pm ET

I just seen the video.... But Michael looks uncomfortable....


Mary U from Ohio   August 30th, 2009 8:45 pm ET

I hope more interviews are put up.... I love listening to him...


Mary U from Ohio   August 30th, 2009 8:50 pm ET

I wish we got to more about Michael but the ones who interview him never asked the right questions... I would of like to know what his dreams were besides what he was doing........Did he ever look at the cloulds and what animals he saw... the little things....He still is interesting....


Mary U from Ohio   August 30th, 2009 8:51 pm ET

The good things that would make him giggle


Mary U from Ohio   August 30th, 2009 8:55 pm ET

I wish we got to know more about Michael but the ones who interviewed him never asked the right questions… I would of like to know what his dreams were besides what he was doing……..Did he ever look at the cloulds and what animals he saw… the little things….

Patty Anderson   August 30th, 2009 9:16 pm ET

Hi everyone
I caught this on the news today at work
Looked really awesome. There were celebrations all over the world yesterday.

How is everyone tonight?


Brigida, Italy   August 30th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

Search for "Michael Jackson's Secret Childhood" and see all 10 parts.
There are many interesting things on it, helping understand Michael better. Even if there are some passages not so positively presented, it show us a side of him we never heard. The influence of his religion and education, his problems with it . For example.

The ad upon seems to be new, first time I saw it, it wasn't there. Don't klick, would be better.


angelwings   August 30th, 2009 9:19 pm ET

hi Ptty hi Lori iam ok ty how are you Patty????????

Heidi   August 30th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

HI everyone!


Luda   August 30th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

Hi Heidi!


angelwings   August 30th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

Luda I dont think they will god it will be so finally ..........god I wish this whole thing didnt happen.....

Hi Heidi


Heidi   August 30th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

Hi Luda, angelwings, Patty & Rhonda


Luda   August 30th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

The Burial, the media are they invited or not? the last time they talked about an area for them...


Patty Anderson   August 30th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

Excellent Rhonda. How are you doing.?

Thank you so much!!

Hi Heidi


Rhonda   August 30th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

Hi Heidi


Patty Anderson   August 30th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

Luda last I heard they were only allowing certain media that have been invited.. Wonder if LK is invited.

We all do angelwings. I'm dreading Thurs and that's exactly why. It's final


Rhonda   August 30th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

I am fine Patty and yourself. And you are welcome.
Much Love


Rhonda   August 30th, 2009 9:50 pm ET

We now have 79 songs so far on the site. Enjoy!!!!!!


Cece   August 30th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

I am sure that more that half of that 13,000 fans were minorities. Minorities have misplaced loyalty. It would have been nice to see at least half of that 13,000 people show that gratitude to Senator Teddy Kennedy. He did more for the poor and minorities than Michael Jackson ever did.

Why do we minorities show appreciation to people who haven’t done a thing for us except play football (OJ), or who was an entertainer?


Heidi   August 30th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

Patty,

It is absolutely incredible – Rhonda's site.


Patty Anderson   August 30th, 2009 9:58 pm ET

Yes it is Heidi. I was just on the site a little while ago. It's just amazing. Perfect for the perfectionist Michael was.. The love Rhonda has poured into the site for Micheal and his fans is just amazing.


Luda   August 30th, 2009 9:59 pm ET

Oh, Cece, I see you don't know at all Michael Jackson... too bad.


Alicia   August 30th, 2009 10:00 pm ET

I'm still so sad, I can't help it. He shouldn't be gone. It's not right. He never got to know how we all knew how good he is. He should have know this before he died. If only those media people didn't try so hard to break him, how much can one person take?
I love you Michael, always will.
I know how much you cared and did for the world.
I hope you can hear me in heaven.

I have to ask, no Informer, ever again?


Cece   August 30th, 2009 10:01 pm ET

I am only a few years older than Michael Jackson, of course I know him. Have know him since he was 6 years old.


Rhonda   August 30th, 2009 10:01 pm ET

Thank you Heidi and Patty
Much Love


Irma   August 30th, 2009 10:02 pm ET

Hi everybody, I lost the link for the site of Ronda, please let me know I want to see the site.

Love to Michael


Mara   August 30th, 2009 10:02 pm ET

Hi has anyone heard anything more about when the movie tickets will be going on sale? I would like to secure a ticket since it's only showing for 2 weeks.


Heidi   August 30th, 2009 10:03 pm ET

Aliciia,

The Informer is welcome here anytime he/she wants to come! For me I hope he/she comes tonight.


Heidi   August 30th, 2009 10:04 pm ET

Aren't thye going on sale 9/27/09?


Brigida, Italy   August 30th, 2009 10:07 pm ET

Ok, I forgot the bad parts of this documentary I've posted here... sorry for that. Only a few points are very interesting, especially those about his religious education.

Now I'm trying to see also this one
"The one" 5 parts
watch?v=GvhT4cfjzUk

Wish you a good evening/night 🙂


Patty Anderson   August 30th, 2009 10:07 pm ET

Mara hold on I have some info I can get for you I will post the link for you on FB ok. There's a website that has now opened too you can go and subscribe, they will notify you when tickets go on sale.


Cece   August 30th, 2009 10:07 pm ET

Did Michael Jackson have anything to do with The Civil Rights Act, increasing minimum wage, endorsing Barack Obama, passing a law to insure poor children, supporting Labor Unions ? I think not. Before you comment Luda do you homework.

Oh Luda do you even know who Teddy Kennedy is? If you did you wouldn’t have to make the statement that I don’t know Michael Jackson.


Lois   August 30th, 2009 10:07 pm ET

Good Evening girls 🙂 – nice to see the fans out there celebrating MJ's life.


Mara   August 30th, 2009 10:07 pm ET

At my ticketmaster they don't even know about it – hopefully someone will tell them (employees) soon that they will be selling the movie tickets.


Heidi   August 30th, 2009 10:08 pm ET

Hi Lois!


Lois   August 30th, 2009 10:09 pm ET

Hey Heidi - hello 😉


Lori Quebec Canada   August 30th, 2009 10:09 pm ET

Heidi August 30th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

Patty,

It is absolutely incredible – Rhonda’s site.
-------------------------------–
I can't find Rhonda's site I put in the info she gave me in my search and I get some TMZ site.........


Patty Anderson   August 30th, 2009 10:10 pm ET

CeCe. Take a look back, If Michael had not open doors that he did and bring about racial changes, Obama would'nt be in that office


Patty Anderson   August 30th, 2009 10:11 pm ET

Hello Lois


Lois   August 30th, 2009 10:12 pm ET

Hi Patty....:)


tatiana   August 30th, 2009 10:13 pm ET

Cece;
In Mèxico Ted kennedy is known as a politician and people only knows some thing about him and I repeat as a politician, so people don`t have much in common. By the other hand, Michael is well knowm around the world, even in my country (Cuba), He was in México in 1993, so there is the difference, Michael is american but he is loved and has millions fans worldwide


lex   August 30th, 2009 10:15 pm ET

michael gave 2 so many charites including the naacp...nad michael honestly did more thn ted kennedy no offense to him


Judie   August 30th, 2009 10:15 pm ET

what is Rhonda's site ???


Lois   August 30th, 2009 10:15 pm ET

That's for sure Patty. Michael did open alot of doors and also gave alot to charity to help the poor and the disabled. He opened his home for the sick children and the children who did not have the chance to go to a movie or go to the zoo, or go on a ride. Instead the media crucified him and called a freak and alot of people could not see past that. Most of all MJ was human with feelings.


Luda   August 30th, 2009 10:16 pm ET

Cece,

Of course I know who Teddy was. I was not born yesterday. Don't worry I was alive in the 60's...


Lori Quebec Canada   August 30th, 2009 10:17 pm ET

Thank you Rhona


Heidi   August 30th, 2009 10:17 pm ET

CECE,

I’ll answer your question about Senator Teddy Kennedy (RIP Teddy). Senator Kennedy did a lot for this country; I’m one of those that he helped. My love for him goes very deep and I’m saddened by his death and my prayer goes out to his family.
Senator Kennedy was 77 years old had a wonderful life.

Michael Jackson did a lot with charities he gave over 300 million and was a great Humanitarian. So no you can’t say they are alike but Michael did very good works.

And if you don’t like Michael go to Senator Kennedy’s blog, we here love MICHAEL.


SuzieCanada   August 30th, 2009 10:18 pm ET

cece, there's a kennedy blog here.. feel free to go post there all you like...


Rhonda   August 30th, 2009 10:19 pm ET

Welcome Lori Quebec

Judie, link is above


Lois   August 30th, 2009 10:20 pm ET

Hi Rhonda – like the new things you did with your site 😉


rosegarden   August 30th, 2009 10:21 pm ET

I'm curious abt the movie too why only 2 weeks, if it's call movie? Is Sony going to rob us, I think the price of the ticket will be sky high.


Luda   August 30th, 2009 10:22 pm ET

Charities are on Michael's will... remember?


Rhonda   August 30th, 2009 10:22 pm ET

Thanks Lois
you know you can blog and leave comments right? 🙂


Lois   August 30th, 2009 10:23 pm ET

yes Rhonda 😉 ...thanks


Cece   August 30th, 2009 10:24 pm ET

Thank for telling me there a blog her for Teddy Kennedy. I would blog where ever I want thank you.


Rhonda   August 30th, 2009 10:25 pm ET

Much Love Lois 🙂


Luda   August 30th, 2009 10:25 pm ET

Rhonda, I just saw the site, it has changed a lot since I've been there the last time. It's really beautiful.

Thank you for this beautifull tribute.


Cece   August 30th, 2009 10:26 pm ET

Giving African American the right to vote is far more reaching than giving to the NAACP. I dont discount the contribution that Michael Jackson made, it just doesnt compare with what Teddy Kennedy did.


Mara   August 30th, 2009 10:27 pm ET

rosegarden

I would pay hundred bucks for a movie ticket I just want to see Michael in his last days.


Lori Quebec Canada   August 30th, 2009 10:27 pm ET

It is a beautiful site Rhonda from what I got to look at tonight......I will look at the rest tomorrow night have to leave work early tomorrow morning but thanks again very beautiful......


Lois   August 30th, 2009 10:28 pm ET

Rosegarden – more than likely Sony will be out to make money on this...yes the tickets will probably be overpriced. I don't the 2 week thing either. It seems if you are going to make money on a movie, you should promote as such and release it for more than 2 weeks, but who knows, all of the events surrounding MJ's death have been strange.


Judie   August 30th, 2009 10:29 pm ET

Got it Rhonda beautiful No music ?


Rhonda   August 30th, 2009 10:30 pm ET

Thank You Luda and Lori Quebec


Rhonda   August 30th, 2009 10:31 pm ET

Judie,
the play list has its own page so you can pop the player out and listen to the music without it change when you refresh the page. Thought it would be easier that way


Curious   August 30th, 2009 10:31 pm ET

Rhonda, the site looks homemade not very professional.


lex   August 30th, 2009 10:32 pm ET

y is the movie only out 4 2 weeks dats ridiculous


Sheletta   August 30th, 2009 10:32 pm ET

WOW WOW–even though he is not here with us, in a way he was Ah? This is so beautiful to know how much his fans love him.


Rhonda   August 30th, 2009 10:32 pm ET

Night Lori


SuzieCanada   August 30th, 2009 10:33 pm ET

well cici if we wanted to talk about kennedy we would be on his blog, right? obviously we want to talk about michael, who did more for this world than narrow-minded people could ever imagine. don't come here to belittle micheal.


Judie   August 30th, 2009 10:33 pm ET

Thanks Rhonda,
HE IS so handsome


Rhonda   August 30th, 2009 10:35 pm ET

Curious,
Probably because I am not a professional. It wasn't done for that. It is a tribute to Michael and his fans. Sorry you didn't like it


Lois   August 30th, 2009 10:35 pm ET

Cece – your point has been noted.


Rhonda   August 30th, 2009 10:35 pm ET

Judie,
Yes he is


Mara   August 30th, 2009 10:38 pm ET

Hi Lex

I don't get it either but I tell you what.. I'm going to do everything I can to make sure that I secure a ticket in Vegas to see it the first night. =)


Judie   August 30th, 2009 10:38 pm ET

anyone seen any footage on Spike Lee's MJ B-day bash?


Alicia   August 30th, 2009 10:41 pm ET

If we are trying to boycott Sony, how do we get to see this movie??


lex   August 30th, 2009 10:42 pm ET

ima try and see the movie as much as i can cuz i wanna see mj i might cry a lil bit watchin it lol


Judie   August 30th, 2009 10:43 pm ET

I have to see it.....


Lois   August 30th, 2009 10:44 pm ET

As I understand it, most of the profit will go to the Estate....but good question, maybe find a bootleg copy down the road lol?


Mara   August 30th, 2009 10:44 pm ET

lol you and me both!


Judie   August 30th, 2009 10:45 pm ET

The Estate that also means his children right


lex   August 30th, 2009 10:46 pm ET

sarah   August 30th, 2009 10:46 pm ET

hi every1.........is the sept. 3 burial really going to happened ?????

FANS OF MJ FROM PAKISTAN!!PEACE!!!!


tatiana   August 30th, 2009 10:46 pm ET

I think that a boycott to SONY, will be bad for Michael`s estate, I read that 90% will be to the estate


Patty Anderson   August 30th, 2009 10:46 pm ET

Mara I sent an add friend request to you so i can get the info to you.


Mara   August 30th, 2009 10:46 pm ET

Judie

Linda from NY went to that one. I want to hear about it also I bet it was GREAT!!! I'd like to know who all performed. I bet it was out of this world!


Lois   August 30th, 2009 10:46 pm ET

yes, Judie, his estate means his beneficiaries, which include his mother, children and charities....and probably others named in the trust agreement.


lindafromnewyork   August 30th, 2009 10:47 pm ET

Hi evryone-

Rhonda-
I tried to add a comment on your site but I couldn't find the area to add it. Do you have to subscribe in order to add a comment. I could swear I signed up back when the site first went up-now I can't remember my password–


Lois   August 30th, 2009 10:48 pm ET

good evening Sarah – how are u....well who knows if the burial will happen on the 3rd.


lindafromnewyork   August 30th, 2009 10:48 pm ET

I had a great time at Spike Lee's Birthday Bash–Oh my god–It's was lie a concert–They even had a Birthday cake for MJ


Judie   August 30th, 2009 10:49 pm ET

I was wondering about Linda havn"t seen her on LKL blog as of yet.

Estate for kids is good I Guess it's a personal choice.


Rhonda   August 30th, 2009 10:49 pm ET

Linda,
yeah you have to subscribe


Mara   August 30th, 2009 10:50 pm ET

Lex

I'm with you. I don't care how much it cost or who gets the money this time.

Not this time. I just want to view him on the big screen his last days. I'll make up for it by not buying the books and junk.


Alicia   August 30th, 2009 10:50 pm ET

As long as the estate gets most of the profits.......I want to see it (need to) and am afraid as well.
😦


Lois   August 30th, 2009 10:50 pm ET

Hey Linda, good evening, how was the bash?

The comment section is under one of the tabs, I think it is under My opinion, not sure tho....but you don't need to subscribe to make a comment.


lindafromnewyork   August 30th, 2009 10:50 pm ET

I was on earlier-no one I knew was on


Rhonda   August 30th, 2009 10:50 pm ET

Linda,
If you click on the opinion page and then the comment page it should let you post one also


lex   August 30th, 2009 10:51 pm ET

hey linda


Judie   August 30th, 2009 10:51 pm ET

and there she is........ How great that must of been


sarah   August 30th, 2009 10:51 pm ET

Im fine Lois, thxs for asking ....yah we just have to wait i guess to see what really will happened on that day ................

FANS OF MJ FROM PAKISTAN!!PEACE!!!!!


Sheletta   August 30th, 2009 10:52 pm ET

Judie: You took the words out of my mouth (so to speak), that is why I was willing to spend money on this movie knowing that it will go to the estate for his children. But, also this movie will only run for two weeks


Rhonda   August 30th, 2009 10:52 pm ET

Linda,
let me know if it worked okay


Patty Anderson   August 30th, 2009 10:52 pm ET

I wonder tatiana. You may have a good point there.


lindafromnewyork   August 30th, 2009 10:53 pm ET

Lois
It was Great-So many people–I met three ladies who were also by themselves–we hung out together–so much love for Michael–I cried so much–but Ihad a great time. There was some Karoeke–I hope I spelled right–MJ impersonators–int the crowd–Al Sharpton spoke–A sea of people it was like a concert.


Patty Anderson   August 30th, 2009 10:54 pm ET

Hi Linda. I hope you took lots of pictures. What a memory for you to have.


Mara   August 30th, 2009 10:54 pm ET

Hi Linda

This lady Judie wa asking about the party bash!!!


lex   August 30th, 2009 10:54 pm ET

2 weeks isnt enough time 2 see the movie the tickets r gonna sell out in a minute hoepfully its a test run and if it does good thy keep it goin


Lois   August 30th, 2009 10:54 pm ET

Although Sarah – I haven't heard whether they have even signed off on the death certificate yet....so I don't think they can bury him until it has been signed off...does anyone know if it has been?


Mara   August 30th, 2009 10:55 pm ET

Lois   August 30th, 2009 10:55 pm ET

Awww it sounds wonderful Linda, glad you were able to attend and honour him the way he should be honoured.

Judie   August 30th, 2009 11:03 pm ET

Michael got a star in Vegas last night, he would of killed in Vegas


lindafromnewyork   August 30th, 2009 11:04 pm ET

Mara–How was the vegas bash

Judy–at the end nobody wanted to leave–The last song was Man in the Mirror–the had to play twice-and people just hung around.


lindafromnewyork   August 30th, 2009 11:05 pm ET

Hi Patty
Hi Lex


Judie   August 30th, 2009 11:05 pm ET

Linda,
sounds like a memory you'll have forever!


lindafromnewyork   August 30th, 2009 11:07 pm ET

@ Judy

Yes–I will–Oh my god–It felt like a concert–you kept thinking that Michael was going to come on any minute.


lindafromnewyork   August 30th, 2009 11:08 pm ET

@Mara–sent me a note on facebook and tell me about the Vegas bash–


Patty Anderson   August 30th, 2009 11:09 pm ET

LOL Linda it was the excitement. You have the memories in your mind that's most important.
Were there alot of people.
Celebrations all over the world. I hope this continues for years to come. Now we should work on our tribute ladies.


Patty Anderson   August 30th, 2009 11:10 pm ET

Mara I sent the info to you. Let me know if it works for you. 🙂


Mara   August 30th, 2009 11:11 pm ET

Linda

I had a wonderful time! It was short 3-5 PM the Maloof Bros donated the Palms concert venue so everything was on time. The show was taped so hopefully it will come out on video soon. The opening act was great Holly from Girls Next Door played Tatiana in The Way You Make Me Feel, E-Casanova performed, a group from Australia (Human Nature) performed also a guy from India (they had mentioned Ortega's name) and several other acts. The only time I cried was when the cast of the Phantom of the Opera sang Heal the World (the part where Michael talks at the end). That's when the tears started rolling!!!!

Eh Linda I also ran into Miko Brandon.


Mara   August 30th, 2009 11:12 pm ET

Linda

Who was all performing? Were there any groups from Motown or just random local acts?


Patty Anderson   August 30th, 2009 11:13 pm ET

Judie that's excellent. I think I read somewhere yesterday in NY somewhere AUgust 29th is now officially Michael Jackson day.


lindafromnewyork   August 30th, 2009 11:14 pm ET

@Patty
Thin of of the crowd at Wembley when Michael Perfromed there–that was the crowd–Huge–I think someone said that Spike will do this next year–We do have to start working on the Las Vegas Fan tribute-

@Mara-sounds like you also had a nice time-


Judie   August 30th, 2009 11:15 pm ET

I don't think we will ever see talent like that ever again.....


lex   August 30th, 2009 11:16 pm ET

thy should make mj's b-day michael jackson day dat would be a great honor


lindafromnewyork   August 30th, 2009 11:17 pm ET

@judy
Never –MJ was one of a kind-


Sheletta   August 30th, 2009 11:19 pm ET

This will be nice if they made a Micheal Jackson Day, in Las Vegas I would love to attend something like that in his honor. Las Vegas is just an one hour and 5 min ride for me.


Lois   August 30th, 2009 11:21 pm ET

MuchMusic Canada is playing Michael's DVD Live in Bucharest, right now, might be late for those back east.


Judie   August 30th, 2009 11:22 pm ET

Thanks Tatiana for the link


lindafromnewyork   August 30th, 2009 11:23 pm ET

@Lois
I love that DVD-when that girl kisses Michael-and security comes–Why wasn't me- I would still be tied to Michael-It with the the Ultimate MJ collection


Patty Anderson   August 30th, 2009 11:24 pm ET

tatiana Thanks. All those fans. Michael is so loved.......

Lois we had it figured out long before the media. Guess they are bit behind the MJCSI team. HAha


lindafromnewyork   August 30th, 2009 11:25 pm ET

@Judy–See waht I mean–the crowd–

Tatian-Than you for posting it–I was there yesterday but it's nice to relive it-


Lois   August 30th, 2009 11:26 pm ET

Patty – yes I know lol......well maybe we have figured it out without the media this time.


tatiana   August 30th, 2009 11:26 pm ET

you are very wellcome


Mara   August 30th, 2009 11:27 pm ET

Tatiana

Thanks I just got done watching the video WOW that was ALOT of people!!


lindafromnewyork   August 30th, 2009 11:27 pm ET

@patty–we had everything figured out–I kept saying that caller sounded way too calm–something was not right–how do you sound that calm when you Michael Jackson in cardiac arrest.–MJCSI–right on the money–


lindafromnewyork   August 30th, 2009 11:28 pm ET

@Mara
It was like the Wembley concert crowd–HUGE


Rhonda   August 30th, 2009 11:28 pm ET

Linda,
responded to you and thanks again so much
Much Love


Mara   August 30th, 2009 11:29 pm ET

Sheletta

Are you in Nevada?


lindafromnewyork   August 30th, 2009 11:30 pm ET

@Mara
by the way they are just showing the center aisle there was a section on the left where I was–just as crowded


Lori   August 30th, 2009 11:31 pm ET

Sheletta   August 30th, 2009 11:33 pm ET

Mara: Nope, I am in Calif. (Northern), that is why I said I was an hour away by plane. When I thought that is where he was going to be preforming for good, I was going every chance I go just to see Michael sing. Beside I go to Las Vegas at least two a year anyway.


Heidi   August 30th, 2009 11:33 pm ET

Night Linda


Mara   August 30th, 2009 11:34 pm ET

Linda

If they have a 2nd annual I'll be included this time! That's the type of party I like.


Patty Anderson   August 30th, 2009 11:34 pm ET

Good Night Linda. Bet you will have good dreams tonight :0

Barbara   August 30th, 2009 11:36 pm ET

It was nice to be able to bring in Michael's birthday with ya all at the stroke of midnight on August 29...and I enjoyed reading everyone's tributes and ways of remembering Michael.


Lori   August 30th, 2009 11:37 pm ET

Another big family reunion. Too much food. Lots of visiting. Good times. Slight argument with my sister in law over the Michael situation, but it was all good.

Mara   August 30th, 2009 11:40 pm ET

Lex

That's what I want also. I asked before if anyone knew how we would go about it like signing a petition or something. Just like MLK day and all the MLK streets in every city we should have one like that for Michael! He deserves it!


Heidi   August 30th, 2009 11:41 pm ET

I like that!

I good!

Rhonda   August 30th, 2009 11:45 pm ET

Lori,
I read that the other day. But AEG is saying that technically they are not acting


Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 30th, 2009 11:46 pm ET

Lori - yes, but it's because they mistakenly assumed there would be some "acting" involved. Crazy, because it's raw footage and commentary. They are not entitled to a cut of anything...

Hi everyone. 🙂
Patty, what are you saying about the 911 caller?


Tina (Germany)   August 30th, 2009 11:57 pm ET

Cece, those people live in Mexico, they have nothing to do with Kennedy but they had something to do with MJ. I also have nothing to do with Kennedy. He has nothing to do with my country. Guess what there are other countries behind your borders.
To be honest I don't care at all about Ted Kennedy, but I don't go to his block and attack people that mourn his death because I have respect and understand his meaning for the US. So you should do the same to people that post here and respect and understand the meaning of MJ for people all over the world.


Heidi   August 30th, 2009 11:58 pm ET

Hi Toni!


Lori   August 30th, 2009 11:58 pm ET

Hey Toni 🙂

JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL


Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 30th, 2009 11:58 pm ET

Lex - it wasn't a large segment, mostly things we already know. They played Michael's telephone recording to June Gatlin, and she was on the show talking about it with G. The Etok woman was on there too talking about the letter she wrote to President Obama.


Patty Anderson   August 30th, 2009 11:59 pm ET

Hi Toni. How are you. Haven't said anything bout the 911 caller but I do think he should bring his coward ass forward and speak the truth!!!


lex   August 31st, 2009 12:00 am ET

oh oki'll try 2 stay up and watch it at 1


Heidi   August 31st, 2009 12:01 am ET

Nicole,

What you think when he said the family has drawn up the papers for a Wrongful Death Suit?


Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 31st, 2009 12:01 am ET

Heidi - Geragos is always interesting to watch!

So, it sounds like you all had a good weekend. I fond it a little difficult, but Thursday will be worse. I'll be glad when thursday is over.


Patty Anderson   August 31st, 2009 12:03 am ET

Correction Lori Gene is on the fed probe blog. Sorry


Rhonda   August 31st, 2009 12:03 am ET

It was in one of the papers that the attorney's for two of Michael's employees have been trying to get them in to talk to the police cause they have some interesting things to say. But the attorney's say that the police tell them that they will get back to them to set up an interview. One of the employees is Alvarez. The attorney said that he will either support murray's word or go against it but wouldn't release what he was going to say


Patty Anderson   August 31st, 2009 12:05 am ET

It was a difficult weekend Toni. I was able to hear plenty of Michaels music though. People all over the resort were playing it all weekend especially yesterday every where you went you could hear the music. Pretty cool it was


lex   August 31st, 2009 12:05 am ET

yea thursday is gonna be sad i jus cnt beleivr he's really gone evn after 2 months


Toni   August 31st, 2009 12:06 am ET

Patty, I jusr read above about some caller being too calm or something.


Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 31st, 2009 12:07 am ET

Heidi - well, Geragos said he heard that the family had drawn up papers...not concrete info though.

What I thought was interesting is his perspective on other entities than the doctors also facing potential charges. Now that I would love to see happen!

Time to take down Ratty Phillips and Co....

Don't forget Klein! Love to see him sitting behind bars.


Lois   August 31st, 2009 12:10 am ET

Hi Toni – good evening 😉

I posted an interesting blog theory on MJ's death on my facebook page. It is quite long but it basically is a summary of what we have been saying all along along with information that has not been discussed here. To me it makes sense.


Toni   August 31st, 2009 12:12 am ET

Rhonda
Maybe the police are wondering the same thing we are.....why did it take them so long to come forward? They should have went to the police that same day or the day after. Or...........the police dont care to find out what happened. One or the other.


Rhonda   August 31st, 2009 12:13 am ET

Exactly, how much money are they getting to lie or tell the truth which ever it may be this time


Jacquelyn   August 31st, 2009 12:15 am ET

It gave me chills. What an awesome tribute. I wish Michael was here to see this – wish the informer is right. He would have been so proud and happy. Its great to see Michael fans are always so positive. I hope Jackson family would show this tribute performances to Michael's kids. So they'll see how many people around the world loved their father.


b   August 31st, 2009 5:29 am ET

Thank you Larry for some positive news on Michael. He has helped millions of people. And he has given us most amazing music and dance moves ever. I really hope you can do a show on this. Like most of the fans here have been asking for so long.

ohh it's awesome and it makes me cry.. this video is more than words how people around the world honor and love Michael so much..

why didn't all these people bring a can food item to a food bank. Can you just think that would help 13,000+ bringing a can food item to a shelter. WOW that would really say something .


MaryRM   August 31st, 2009 4:11 pm ET

@Cece
I am a Canadian and both Teddy and Michael were role models. Michael helped raise $$ for Ted Kennedy's 1980 campaign, there is a picture of them together. As well Michael lobbied for many of the same issues that were important to Ted (civil rights, environment, etc.). They each took their natural talents and chosen careers to do their best for the betterment of society. I watched Teddy's funeral a great deal of the day Saturday and watched 'Alive in Bucharest' that night – it was a difficult day but it was important to honour both these great men.


Katirina   September 1st, 2009 8:40 am ET

This was such a sweet gesture to remember the King of Pop,he touched many around the world..he broke barriers..he will always be remembered..the King of Pop always..his music lives on..
