Michael Jackson Lives On in 'This Is It'

Posted: 02:47 AM ET

By Joan E. Dowlin via Huffington Post

"Michael Jackson's This Is It" took in $101 million worldwide since its release.After seeing Michael Jackson's This Is It for the second time in four days, I can say that it is a little easier to accept his death. It is still incredibly sad. But watching him on the screen with this backstage documentary of what was to be his farewell tour, I felt uplifted and I got a sense that he was in a different place than he had been a few years ago when he was going through his trials and tribulations. It seems that he had come full circle and reached a point in his life where he was at peace with himself.

He was poised for a comeback and this tour would have been spectacular. It included his greatest hits and a few new songs with contemporary themes such as saving the planet. Jackson seems to be in his element throughout this project whether it is rehearsing onstage or working with the musicians, singers, and dancers behind the scenes. He knew every nuance and detail of the show and his directions served as an inspiration to the entire cast.

Some of the most intimate moments of the movie are when Jackson mentors outstanding guitarist Orianthi Panagaris, telling her "this is your moment to shine" and when he shares a spontaneous duet of "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" with Judith Hill. You can almost feel the excitement and pure joy of being coached by the King of Pop.

Thank you Larry..a new blog !! As for the article. How I wish more of this type of media coverage and stories had been printed the past few years when Michael could have read them instead of all the trash printed about him in the past.


marin-indonesia   November 16th, 2009 4:10 am ET

I love this article, thanks larry for posting it.


Kindness   November 16th, 2009 4:16 am ET

It is definitely not the end


Death of me...   November 16th, 2009 4:16 am ET

Michael is finally being recognized and respected as he should. It's a shame that he had to "die" to really know that he is loved,adored,and appreciated by millions.


Alice   November 16th, 2009 4:17 am ET

Everyone should read the book "Be Careul Who you Love"


Death of me...   November 16th, 2009 4:21 am ET

@Kindness

You are absolutely correct. This is not the end,this is the beginning. The persona has died,but not the man. Lets keep Michael's message alive and going strong. That's what he wants.


jacqueline\nl   November 16th, 2009 4:26 am ET

those articles most be written more over michael
he deserve those kind off words and so so much more
thanks larry for this article

r.i.p. michael love you forever

Such a nice article ! Thank you Larry ๐Ÿ™‚


ibelieve   November 16th, 2009 4:57 am ET

@ Death of Me
Nice to see you again. I agree, it was death of the persona, birth of the man. The message was delivered. I will keep spreading that word, no matter what.


Mary   November 16th, 2009 4:59 am ET

@ ibelive

Good morning my friend! nice to see you again..:-)


ibelieve   November 16th, 2009 5:00 am ET

@ Mary,
Good morning to you as well. I haven't been to sleep yet, think I'm burning all hours tonight in thoughts. How are you?


Denise do Rio de Janeiro - Brasil   November 16th, 2009 5:00 am ET

"I was basing this on interviews he gave about four years ago. After having seen this film I must revise my thinking on that."

So do not know anything about Michael Jackson for 4 years but write about it based on ...

Well, well, well ... hill and not see everything!


Mary   November 16th, 2009 5:04 am ET

@ibelive

LOL, I'm very well, thank you! I haven't slept so much last night, but as long as I'm on the love boat im ok! lol
How about you? I bet you must be tired..
**hug**


ibelieve   November 16th, 2009 5:08 am ET

@ Mary
Yes, I am rather tired, so many things to do, so little time it seems anymore. The love boat was certainly a great time last night, maybe I don't want to sleep out of fear it won't return!

Hugs to you.

@ ibelive

Oh yes, it sure was! We have to make sure that it never goes away! It always has to stay this way..wow. wouldn't that be something?!
What did I miss last night?
I'm so sad I had to leave, I bet I would be up all night just like you..


ibelieve   November 16th, 2009 5:16 am ET

@ Mary
You didn't miss much, I think everyone got tired finally. I bounced into R's place for awhile, spoke to the family there. Just really thinking more about applying the message, ways to inspire others, and setting goals to reach. I wish it would stay this way, it should. We all came here because of one person, so that should give us the common ground to build on.


Mary   November 16th, 2009 5:21 am ET

@ ibelive

I hear you! and I totally agree with you! Apart from spreading the message, we have to apply it too(now-today, not tomorrow)
I can still feel the love virus in your words! You just put a big smile on my face! ๐Ÿ™‚

You need more rest. Sleep is very important for a persons health. The body fixes itself when you sleep, it is very important.

@Mary
You also need to sleep more.
I am ok. Bit tired.
It's 6.18pm here and my retriever is driving me insane. He barks soooo loud it goes right through you.

@ Ozzie

Yes, I need more rest.
But it isnยดt so easy.
Maybe I take a nap in the afternoon ๐Ÿ™‚

I'm good, little warn out, but I am alive so I do not mind feeling this way. Things could be alot worse.


Mary   November 16th, 2009 6:28 am ET

Huh, changing tires – nothing for me to do lol ๐Ÿ˜€ ! I tried it a few times, but It didn't work out that well (yes they are really heavy)!

@777Perfection
Yes an afternoon nap sounds good. Especially if it is raining, I like listening to the rain while cuddled up in bed.

That sounds like a nice way to spend your Wednesday!
I have a Pekingese ( I dont know if I spelled that right lol) , she is tiny but has a lot of energy ๐Ÿ™‚
Sometimes its even hard to keep up with her, cause I think my dog never gets tired lol


Ozzie   November 16th, 2009 6:38 am ET

@777Perfection

Your so lucky to get snow. We don't get it in our part of the country, the eastern states do.
I have only seen it once and I absolutely loved it. It was the prettiest thing I had ever seen. So delicate, just slowly falling from the sky.

Listen to me, you already know that. lol

Yes the weather all over is strange at the moment, one day stinking hot next day showers.


Mary   November 16th, 2009 6:39 am ET

Billy sounds like a real rock star name to me lol ๐Ÿ™‚
Yes, you already said that you're tiny so I'm glad your son is there to help you out with that!

Anyway, Nice too see you again!
Hugs to you


Ozzie   November 16th, 2009 6:41 am ET

@Mary
How cute.
I know dogs can just go and go and go. Even when they are old and you think they are about to give up they get a burst of energy.
My poodle is 14 and has a few problems with his spine, it makes me very sad to see him sometimes in pain. I don't know what I will do without him.


777Perfection   November 16th, 2009 6:45 am ET

@ Mary

He is ๐Ÿ™‚ and I am his rocking mama ๐Ÿ™‚
Oh, he donยดt want to, but he have to ๐Ÿ™‚
I canยดt manage it by myself.

@ Ozzie

Oh trust me I know how you feel! My dog is 13, she was very sick, had a lot of tumors, couldn't walk.. but we found a great vet, and now it's like she's 10 years younger!
She had some problems with her spine too, and we had to do some stretching exercises with her! The pain went away after 10 days. She still has problems sometimes, but its way better now! If i find those stretching exercises I could email them to you. Maybe it'll help your dog too!


777Perfection   November 16th, 2009 6:50 am ET

@ Ozzie

Yes, I like snow. Like to play with
my doggie in the snow.

I lost my favourite cat for about 1.5 year ago.
I think Iยดll never get over that, she was my heart.
We had shared so much together.

Aww..the article made me sad..but it's beautifully written. Never i miss a person,whom i never met, this much..it's like now my life revolves around him..everyday, i keep reading his latest news..happy if it's a good article, bad if it's another tabloid junkie..i listen to his music a lot and i rewatch his clips..time will heal for sure..for now i'm dwelling myself to this feeling to the point that it no longer hurts..anyway..can't wait for the DVD! ๐Ÿ™‚

Wow really. Do you still breed cats?? How did you part with the little kitties.
We were going to breed goldies but I came to the conclusion that I would not be able to part with puppies. So got rid of that idea.

I wish you could send me some snow, but I feel I would have to drink it by the time it got here. lol
But that's a lovely thought, thank you.

No, I ended my breeding nov 2004.
Blondie, my bluetortoiseshell is from that litter.
Itยดs a very expensivie hobby,
and I couldnยดt afford it anymore.
But Iยดve been breeding cats since 1992.

Itยดs very much work to keep a breeding going.
You have to go on shows and make PR for them.
Actually I hade many multiple BIS winners, it was fun time.


777Perfection   November 16th, 2009 7:24 am ET

@ Ozzie

I think boys are easier to handle than girls.
I like to play football, basket and such things,

Much love to you, my friend !


Ozzie   November 16th, 2009 7:30 am ET

@777Perfection

Sounds like you did a great job with your cats.

I think you are probably right that boys are easier than girls. Especially in school, girls are so cruel these days, boys just punch each other and they are friends again. lol
Yes there is that. (not having a man). Would you have another child now?
I love football but I think my football might be different to yours. Do you mean soccer?


777Perfection   November 16th, 2009 7:36 am ET

@ Ozzie

Yes, I did. But the medallion also have
a very dark backside ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I think so, but I never had a babygirl, so ??
Maybe I can find a man who already have a little girl
It probaly would be easier for me ๐Ÿ™‚

I love to do whatever, Iยดll keep up with the boys,
Iยดm not old yet ๐Ÿ™‚

karna siapa lagi..hiks..he sure was..and i miss him so much every single day since his passing..before, cause he didn't show up in public very often, there was always something that i looked forward to..now there isn't..

oh, i figure..cause i've been reading larry's for quite some times and i didn't see anyone else except you..he's famous here but not many hard fans..aku tinggal di Jakarta..


Maureen (UK)   November 16th, 2009 8:18 am ET

What a refreshing review of Michael in This Is It. I also felt that Michael was back on top, where he belonged and that's where he would be now if he hadn't been pushed into doing so many concerts.

The whole production, musicians, vocalists & dancers were brilliant & were nurtured to their personal best through Michael's mentoring, expertise & involvement at every level. There has never been a concert production like this one. Joan E. Dowlin said that she has changed her views about Michael & I applaud her honesty, thank you.


Sandy-Houston   November 16th, 2009 8:23 am ET

"He seemed to be able to take in the admiration and appreciation and beam it back to them. The love was palpable."

Yes Ms Dowlin, this was our Michael. All about love and others instead of himself taking all the credit. I don't know of any other "entertainer" who would respond as you stated above. Michael was more than special.

Ms Dowlin, your positive relfelctions about Michael are much appreciated. This is an article that his children will be proud to read about their Dad in the future.

And thank you LKL for a positive article about Michael.


marin-indonesia   November 16th, 2009 8:33 am ET

@ iva
Yes iva, i feel the same. Apalagi di indonesia susah nemu forum sesama fans MJ. That's why I always go to LKL's blog to share some thought with another fans.

@ maureen
Hi dear, how are you?


claire   November 16th, 2009 8:34 am ET

Thanks Larry for a new post.

Michael was Magical in This is it. Its a shame the film couldn't have gone on forever, Just like Michael will forever in my heart.


Emmy Lalonde, Belgium.   November 16th, 2009 8:40 am ET

Ya Michael, you were great on the This is is show. We saw you having a good collaboration with Ortega how to do the best for the show, also with crew and the dancers, thay are recpected to you and listened to you very much, how to do the best way for the show be well done. We knew that you craeted that show, as Ortega always listening to you, however. We always feeling to soon of loosing you, and could find you no more. Well, Michael, you can see that million people love you, and will always MORE.
Lord bless you Michael and your family. Justice should be done, to bring Murray to justice.


MaryRM   November 16th, 2009 8:41 am ET

I'm sorry, what I see this woman writing is:
"there was plenty of prejudice against Michael and somade ignorant assumptions from interviews 4 years ago, and wrote those because that's what would people expected. Now there is no denying the loving human being he was, it is there for everyone to see and therefore the story has to be rewritten."

Joan – Michael was the same person 4 years ago, just devastated by the lynching he survived. As you state "MJ's reaction was to humbly say "God bless you." He seemed to be able to take in the admiration and appreciation and beam it back to them. The love was palpable."

Well every person who actually knew Michael always said these things about him, it's just no one in the media was listening.

Sorry, but until the reason for the media mob destruction of this beautiful human being is exposed, I am going to assume, based on your articles, that you are just another hypocrite knowing where to find a buck. Hope I am as fair to you as you and all the other media piranhas were fair to Michael. Too little too late. I am still very far way from forgiving any one of you.


Judie   November 16th, 2009 8:42 am ET

Good Morning All,

This just shows how loving and kind~Michael~ was.But then we knew that. Special of course there will never be another.

Lora Ottawa Canada   November 16th, 2009 9:11 am ET

Good morning all

Michael will live on forever! No truer words were written!

He was full of energy, creative....and he looked happy in rehearsals! I have seen TII 4x times now and will go again until it stops playing.

Conrad and whoever else involved in his death has to PAY! Big Time!
Cant wait to see what Janet Jackson has to say in her interview on Wednesday!


Superfly Jive-Master   November 16th, 2009 9:12 am ET

And his duet with Judith was not "spontanous" I mean hello! It was part of the show..how is that "spontanous"

And Earth song is a classic song, it came out some 15 years ago or there abouts. I'm thinking the person who wrote this article knows not a thing about Michael Jackson or his music. just my thought.

I don't understand how to blogging on mariau's blog, I tried so many times with no result. Btw what happen on mariau's blog?

I have seen the movie, three times. And it was amazing. Amazing!! i love this is it, I love michael jackson and miss him so much lora. I really do.

Lora, when will the investigation gives us some new information. I really wanna know. Why it took so long?


Some Things Can't Be Rushed   November 16th, 2009 9:32 am ET

I wish the article caption had simply read: "Michael Jackson Lives On." instead.

This whole thing since June 25th, 2009, has been so surreal.


Some Things Can't Be Rushed   November 16th, 2009 9:33 am ET

Wouldn't it be great if we could all wake up and realize it was a bad dream?


kathy 40   November 16th, 2009 9:33 am ET

Thanks Mrs. Dowlin, but to me it seems like "too little, too late". If you want to make things right and vindicate MJ why not team up with other mediapeople and do so. For example Aphrodite Jones. Otherwise it's just talk after the matter. He is dead now. But maybe his kids would appreciate the effort. I myself have a hard time forgiving the MEDIA. They still mostly post "negative' things about MJ. Especially TMZ and News of the World. They hardly ever said anything about the movie TII. Instead they post someting bad, just to hold the attention of their "readers" with sensationalism. Thanks MJ, you keep Rocking our worlds. RIP.

Since June 25th the world has been flipped upside down. It is our job to get it back on track, and to get folks to understand that we should not mourn for Michael, but celebrate Michael.


Some Things Can't Be Rushed   November 16th, 2009 9:40 am ET

Well as Michael once said to Q: "Some things can't be rushed," except of course someone who is late for work.

You are quite correct, it's up to us to make that change. Michael blazed the way for us, now it's our turn to pick up the "torch" to continue.


Victoria J   November 16th, 2009 9:44 am ET

It is good to wake up this morning and read a well written article and to see the wonderment that Ms. Dowlin had for Michael, the director, producer, mentor and grand entertainer. All these roles we are priviledged to glimpse in This Is It for a few hours to help us hold onto that which was Michael and in some way it helps us accept his passing for it is a comfort to know that his legacy will be this. I am thanking Mr. Ortega this morning, too, for having the foreknowledge to know that the release of the rehearsal films would allow the world who did not know him to fall in love with him. It does take courage, Ms. Dowlin, to admit that you had to re-write Michael from the perspective you now have. I appreciate that, but as an author in the musical realm, could you please perhaps write an article about how Michael should not have come under attack from the media like he did? They influenced a whole world with articles much like the one you wrote previously; and it was one person having to carry the burden of so many not understanding him because they never took the time to know him. I do find it difficult to understand how you did not see the real Michael four years ago. What couldn't you see? All you had to do was open your eyes, turn off the sound of the TV and look into his eyes which reflected a hurt soul of someone wrongly accused of horrific atrocities. What can't you see? If it was your next door neighbor who you knew, isn't that what you would see? I don't want to be too harsh on you as I am most appreicative of your kind words and your strength to say you were wrong. I just wish the media that now supports you and others like you in your writing endeavors who are praising Michael now would understand had they been this wise all along, Michael would have been performing those concerts in London rather than being caught on film and us watching him...wishing he was still with us.


Some Things Can't Be Rushed   November 16th, 2009 9:44 am ET

Superfly Jive-Master-I hear ya, but for me it's like that t-shirt someone once wrote about. You know the one that reads: YES on the front and NO on the back. And every other day I keep spinning around.

Is Michael alive?-YES-NO
Is Michael gone?-YES-NO

Spin, spin, spin. Maybe I cold have been one of the back up dancers on the "This Is It" tour with all that spinnin'.


Superfly Jive-Master   November 16th, 2009 9:45 am ET

@ SO,
That seems like a realistic goal to me, I'm sure you can do it! I'm well this morning, so far. It is still really early, but I have a lot to do today so I thought I best get up with the rosters.

Have a blessed day!

I saw your post on the other blog and I am very thankful for the stand you took for Michael's dignity on Thursday and Friday and wanted you to know that. I was out of town Saturday & stayed away yesterday for it was another long blog and for other reasons, but won't bring it up because it actually had to do with the stand that you took. Trying to be shush, shush to that so it does not happen again here on this lovely blog. Hope to see you around today.

@ Things Can't Be RUShed,
STOP spinning, Michael is alive and well! Its all good! We must stand by him and help his causes, just because we will never see him again does not mean we should let his work fall to the wayside. But stop spinning for goodness sake, just know Michael is safe and happy, he would not want you getting all dizzy and thing ๐Ÿ˜‰

People should really worry less about the fact if Michael Jackson is alive or not. Michael wants us to think he is dead, so let us not focus on that point. There are NO clues, just mistakes. Some things are beyond our control and sometimes we have to do something huge in order to resolve things. This is Michael's buisness not ours. So stop agonizing over his death. That should not even be an issue. Michael would not want that. What he would want is for us to all fight for justice. Justice for our planet and eachother. Help people in need, plant trees, voluneteer our time..All those things.

He was so passionate about many things, take one thing and run with it, make it your own, and make him proud!

I have hope for everyone, but those media outlets feed to those who are just evil or sick and don't want to hear anything good about anyone. At least Ms. Dowlin does seem to possess some integrity...she admitted she was wrong. I wish it had been the other way around and I think she does, too.

Cali MJ Fan   November 16th, 2009 10:13 am ET

"It included his greatest hits and a few new songs with contemporary themes such as saving the planet."

Trying not to be a nitpicker– but there were no new songs that Michael was rehearsing to include in "This Is It" performances– at least that were shown during the documentary. The song of the same name was found after his passing and not one he planned on performing. For most fans, all of his songs are his greatest hits.

His messaage has always been to make the world a better place, with songs such as Heal The World and Earth Song. Again not new– maybe updated in the way he was going to show them but not the songs or the messages themselves.

Maybe some are finally listening to his messages– which is a great thing!


pat davis   November 16th, 2009 10:21 am ET

God Bless You Michael. You're passing has inspired some of those who judged negatively to look at your life differently. I have supported you and your family throughout your life on stage. This is why your death has put a tremendous strain on my entire being. Losing Michael Jackson is like losing a part of me, a part of my childhood. As a little girl listening to your music I would dance and sing, and just feel so good inside. I couldn't wait to get home and play your records after school! And I would play them back to back to back! I can remember staying up till 5:00 a.m. at times just to see the Jackson 5ive on The Jerry Lewis Telethon. A part of me left when you, Michael Jackson, left this world. I contiue to ask myself, " Why Michael Jackson, Why "?. God Bless You Michael, God Bless Your Beautiful Soul! MJ-FAN4LIFE!!!

Hello Everyone!

Hi Marin,
I'm okay, but lately I've been very sad about Michael's death. I think it's because of the holidays coming up. I can't stop thinking about how much he loved his family, and how sad his kids are going to be celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas without him for the first time. The thought of it just makes me sad.

Hi Patty & Stu, how are ya today!


Patty Anderson   November 16th, 2009 10:50 am ET

Morning Laura. Well Lora I have no Idea who spaceman is but If I'm a man I guess it was a miracle that I have had 4 children then Haha.

Stu I said that because on the internet you have no clue to whom you are speaking with unless you have met them in person. These days Stu my dear there seem to be alot of people out there looking to hurt someone. It's on the news everyday.
And Stu I wasn't referring to anyone person in particular, I've never spoke to spaceman. I simply suggested you ladies becareful when speaking with someone new.

Look at all the crazy's out there Stu that lure innocent women into their traps. Just simply asked you ladies to be careful ok Stu. Remember what happened to Brittani on here?


Stu,Hungary   November 16th, 2009 10:55 am ET

Thanks Patty.I was just courious,if you had speachel reason,or just basicly becarefull.


KOP FROM USA   November 16th, 2009 10:57 am ET

IN HONOR OF MICHAEL AND ON BEHALF OF HIS KIDS LET'S MAKE SURE THE WORLD REMEMBERS MICHAEL WITH UPMOST RES PECT AND FONDLY. THE KIDS DESERVE TO KNOW THE WORLD FEELS THAT WAY ABOUT THEIR LATE BELOVED FATHER BECAUSE THEY WILL REMEMBER HIM THAT WAY. HOPEFULLY THE WORLD REMEMBERING WILL HELP THE KIDS TO REMEMBER OR LEARN THINGS ABOUT MICHAEL THAT MAY HAVE HAPPENED BEFORE THEY WERE BORN. I THINK THERE IS SO MUCH TO BE SAID FOR VALIDATION OF HOW ONE FEELS. IT MAKES ONE FEEL LIKE JUST MAYBE THEY'RE NOT SO CRAZY AFTERALL. SO LET'S DO IT FOR MICHAELS THREE KIDS. IT WOULD ALSO MEAN THE WORLD HIS MOTHER IF SHE COULD DIE KNOWING THAT HER BEAUTIFUL LOVING SON WAS GOING TO BE THOUGHT OF WITH THE RESPECT HE DESERVED WHEN HE WAS ALIVE.

Stu,Hungary   November 16th, 2009 11:00 am ET

Marin,you are funy.Its not much,what you can read from me.I wrid out of me self olmost everything about MJ.Now i am just vaiting the newas about the investigation.

Patty didnt have problems on the chatroom,we was chating with somebody,and she told us becarfule,and we didnt know,if she knew the person,or just basicly told us becarfule.

Isn't it the goal of any artist to live on forever in the things they create? That's what separates the greats from the flashes-in-the-pan, right. Seems kind of like this goes without saying.

Sandy-Houston,
Thank you for your comforting words yesterday! As you can see I'm still having a hard time today, but today is much better than yesterday. Your response was very reassuring, and it made me feel like I'm not alone!


marin-indonesia   November 16th, 2009 11:06 am ET

@ stu: yes! The investigation. I'm waiting for it also. Feels like years right stu? I'm worried that they would never be able to put dr murray in jail. Because I believe he's responsible for this tragedy.


elisabeth   November 16th, 2009 11:10 am ET

If michael is dead then they MUST arrest 'dr' murray........there must be JUSTICE for michael at last!!!!!!I love you michael wherever you are dead or alive!!!!!!!!

โ€œI am bewildered at the length to which people will go to portray me so negatively" ~Michael Jackson


pat davis   November 16th, 2009 11:15 am ET

Marin,
Thanks for understanding. This blog has been so helpful to me. I am so thankful for all of the support, the information, the laughter, the tears, even the diagreements that we have at times here. It's all good because at the end of the day, its all about Michael Jackson and the affect he has had in ALL our lives.


Anne   November 16th, 2009 11:17 am ET

Michael Jackson, an innocent man, had to die for the media to see the truth about him. MJ was always at peace with himself. It was the media that destroyed his life, his reputation, his career, his home and now his family. The media persecuted him since 1993 and crucified him in 2005. The media are as responsible for his death as is (allegedly) Dr. Murray.

There are several interesting comments below Joan Dowlin's article on the Huffington Post page including a link to a previous article

From the ABC article on JJ"s interview: "Janet Jackson placed blame on Dr. Conrad Murray, saying the doctor should no longer be allowed to practice medicine. "He was the one that was administering," she told ABC's Robin Roberts. "I think he is responsible."

The family gets regular updates from the LAPD etc. Look for clues to what will happen in their statements and behavior.


pat davis   November 16th, 2009 11:20 am ET

Sandy,
I can't wait to see this interview with Janet! I am so happy that she is finally speaking out about Michael's death! I don't know if she will be as outspoken as LaToya, but I'm sure she has a lot to say!


akshara   November 16th, 2009 11:22 am ET

(For me it is still strange that they didn't open michael's casket.......i really don't know........)
No matter what..........michael will live forever!!!!!!!!he is always in our heart!!!!!!!!!i love you sooooo much michael......my sweet angel......God sent us an angel that no one ever appreciated..........i hope you are happy!!!!!!!ANGEL!!!!!!!!

pat davis   November 16th, 2009 11:35 am ET

Elisabeth,
It's been five months, I honestly thought Murray would have been arrested by now. I think the case involving the doctors is whats complicating things. I think they're so many doctors involved that Murray will get charged for Michael's death, but other doctors have to be responsible for writing these perscriptions.

Now see, that's a plan I'm all on board with. I love the thought of Michael out there doing his thing, hugging his tots, living for them and himself and not for the masses. What's done has set into motion a chain of events that will only better the world in ways otherwise impossible. Impossible because without those events some would still be sleeping in their cocoon of oblivion.

I am so glad you are starting to feel at peace. Some things just can not be explained, and you must just accept things for what they are. Some things are beyond our control. If we keep Michael's visions alive and well, he will never die! We must not fret over the unexplained, rather learn from what we do not understand.


Diane in Minneapolis   November 16th, 2009 12:07 pm ET

This article really got to me. Showing, after the fact, who/how MJ is and always has been. How did the truth about MJ so aptly elude you journalists while MJ was alive? And now this? I echo this eloquent sentiment by Mary RM at 8:41:

"Sorry, but until the reason for the media mob destruction of this beautiful human being is exposed, I am going to assume, based on your articles, that you are just another hypocrite knowing where to find a buck. Hope I am as fair to you as you and all the other media piranhas were fair to Michael. Too little too late. I am still very far way from forgiving any one of you".

I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A SPECIAL TRIBUTE TO MICHAEL IF SHE CAME IN SECOND BEHIND HIM. IT WOULD BE A TRIBUTE TO HOW WELL HE RAISED HER FOR THE WORLD TO THINK SHE IS WORTH VOTING FOR BECAUSE OF HER NICENESS AND POLITENESS AND SO ON. PLUS SHE'S HELD TOGETHER PRETTY WELL EVEN THOUGH SHE HAS GONE THROUGH SO MUCH THIS SUMMER. THE WEBSITE YOU CAN VOTE AT IS PERSOON VAN HET YER. AT LEAST IT BEGINS WITH PERSOON.

RE:The Article
'He had come full circle and was at peace with himself'

What a load of bs... he was angry, he wanted peace but AEG wouldnt give it to him... Another stupid journalist wanting to jump on the bandwagon.

And as for Janet saying Dr Murray should be charged...this is correct, but she isnt saying whos behind it all.. what is she afraid of?? Maybe its publicity she doesnt want at the launch of her new album and latest movie... Well if it was my brother i would be shouting as loud as possible... again bs Janet... defend your brother and get with your sister and fight for justice. And stop using Michael as the publicity for you upcoming ventures, yes you are now becoming a subdued Jermaine.

@ Citing Sources

LMAO! I also caught Janet's "my brother's favorite song IS smile." Not WAS smile. Kinda reminds of the red carpet premier where the backup singer said "well Mike knows me." Instead of Mike "knew" me. And the backup dancer's recent interview where he said "being in the room with Mike is like magic. His energy is overwhelming." The interviewer asked why are you speaking in the present tense...to which he fumbled an answer. Also, reminds me of Frank Dileo's interview in which he told Larry King "Michael is very competitive in everything he does" and then looked at the camera with a "freaked out" look. Also, reminds me of Latoya when she was asked if she supported the movie and she said "Well, Michael's my brother and I support everything he does." LMAO again!

We love you, Mike!

I noted also that Janet avoided mention of anyone except Murray. She is in the recording industry so that might make a difference. Have the TINI folks given their thoughts/evidence to the FBI, DA, LAPD, DEA or anyone else involved in the investigation who might listen?

Yes Helen, we all know he is alive. We do not need to prove any more points on that. There are slip ups everywhere. The fact is Michael wants everyone to think he is dead, so instead of sending out the message he is alive, why not send out a different message. We must support Michael on his jounrey!

Yes the fact that she is in the music industry is a point to note... Also i dont like these tributes, interviews, etc while she is promoting her number ones album, and her ucoming movie... if she wasnt doing these things then fair enough... lets not forget last year she was a flop... so makes me think.

Yes the fans testimonies have been handed to and accepted by the LAPD a while ago now.

I see what you are saying about Janet. Didn't look at it that way before. Maybe the investigation/arrests are taking longer because of TINI information. If that is the case – good for you.

I am also hoping the LAPD have the other over 90hrs of rehearsal footage.. as there is a lot that happened... if they havnt then something is very very wrong. Yet we cant seem to find out if they took custody of the footage.. im hoping they did but thinking they may not, as Kenny Ortega spoke about sifting through ALL the footage...it is a worry.

I think you are saying she has no choice to promote??? Of course she has to promote, but i think not on the back of her brother... also why doesnt she just keep it brief and say 'those who are responsible for the death of my brother should be brought to justice' or along those lines, then reflect on her memories with her brother?? Either way she is promoting her new stuff on the back of her brother, her last album flopped, and there was talks with her record company worrying ones.. UNTIL NOW...haha.

Brooklyn1959   November 16th, 2009 1:01 pm ET

@all, just read the article on Huff Post . . . far be it from me to knock anyone who would write about MJ so positively, but what does she mean about "new songs" (there were none), on "contemporary themes"? Hasn't he been talking/singing about race relations, saving the planet, taking personal responsibility, for the last 20 years? She sort of makes it sound like he was just getting around to this.


Diane in Minneapolis   November 16th, 2009 1:02 pm ET

@DN

Supposedly the rest of the footage will be released in a sequel DVD next year so a lot of it will eventually be public (which I know doesn't sit well with your cause). I would think the DA could get it with a search warrant but the grounds for that might be iffy. Also, anything criminal that appeared on footage can be omitted in the minutes following filming anyway. So if they were up to something nefarious, my guess is they would have covered their tracks by editing daily or even hourly to keep it clean from the get-go.

helen   November 16th, 2009 1:06 pm ET

Another interesting/odd thing. Yesterday, I posted my thoughts about the connection to Michael and the film 2012. There is a website called 2012LOVE (dot) com. According to the "Whois Database" the domain was purchased in May 2008. That was just shortly after Michael approached Dileo about making a movie. The registered owner lives in Las Vegas, must be a friend of Michael's. ๐Ÿ™‚ The website is all about the Mayan calender, the end of the world, and the final words that appear on the website are "This Is It." And so the story goes according to Arnie Klein's employee in the last two weeks of Michael's "life" he became obsessed with the Mayan calender, God and the end of the world. In the film 2012, "Jackson" the main character who is thought to be dead, comes back and "saves the world."

We love you, Mike!

I totally agree but didnt want to mention this and being stuck with a 'paranoid' label... Yes the same night of 25th at the Staples centre, when Randy Philips realised 'he was sat on a goldmine', think this might have been the time the editing took place, or footage hidden... as we know they suspected no foul play so it wasnt a murder or homicide inquiry then.. so they had enough time as they were on it that same night of his death.

@DN –

I might be wacky but that doesn't seem "paranoid" to me. Seems like logical thinking. Investigators will tell you that their best witnesses/evidence is human beings so you probably haven't lost anything with the footage. The surveillance tapes in the bedroom having disappeared is a concern I have.

You know after reading your comment about this person writing a nice blog or news about how good michael was/is, I had to sit back and think about what you said, about she only may had written this great paper on him just to get paid. My thoughts are where was she went he needed a person in the media&post to stand in his corner? Why, now, it must be to get paid.

As the old saying goes bring me my flowers while I am here to see then, don't wait till I am MIA, to bring them out.

@Helen you comnent 12:28 ET

I agree with you 100 percent.

even though the article speaks of michael in a nice way, this should had started way back when he was going thru some bad times, due to falsely accuse, etc... Now, someone steps out and speaks about him in a nice way, he should had been getting good reviews way back when, all they wanted to do and still do is trash his name.

Hope, that he is happy where ever he may be, that is all I really care about, not interested in what they keep putting out all bad stuff, just maybe once in a while something good. But, as long as he is happy and free, I am happy with him.

Best moment ever, this time last year I was with him in London as he was doing a two-week run of shows at the O2 with some other artists and he was all excited about me getting to meet his family. Randomly on the flight he goes, "Just wait! You're going to love my Mum's spotted dick." And now, I'm the kind of person, when I get started on a good round of giggles I can lay into it for hours. And that's what I did. All the way to Heathrow.

Thanks, seems we are on the same page on some things..
Yes body language has been successful in the past... but im not sure this time because there are quite a few... and i really beleive the LAPD are too scared to investigate thoroughly... William Bratten resigning spoke volumes, it was so sudden and he even left the state and went to New Yrk..
The security footage from the Holmby Hills residence is a mystery... unless the authorities have found it and are holding it.. or if not then who took it and why?? If they arent investigating this either this is also very worrying... our answer will be they arnt investigating as they should. We have our suspicions on who took it... the same person who went to the residence at 11pm on the night of the 25th and fired the staff and the vegas staff by phone... Tohmme... why could he do this when he had been fired??? But then why was he having early lunch with Dileo at the Beverly Hills Hotel on the morning of the 25th, when Dileo had fired him with Michael the month earlier??? Nothing sits right at all, and it all is extremely worrying. Finding that security footage is key.

Maria   November 16th, 2009 1:45 pm ET

Joan Dowlin is a freelance musician, not a journalist. So criticizing her as if she was a representative of the media is incorrect.
It is a blog article with her subjective impressions about TII, without caring about all the details (there were no new songs for TII – and MJ being a skeleton is not tabloid fodder).
But I'm with her when she says this:
"In fact, after my first screening of the film as I was driving home listening to the radio I was amazed by how many of today's pop and rap artists show an influence of Michael Jackson. MJ's music will never go out of style. Even the Jackson 5 tunes felt contemporary when recreated in the film."

@ DN
The security footage may be with the police. One of the search warrants says: "Video footage at the residence shows the above listed vehicle arriving at approximately 0100 hours" (it's about Murray's car). But nobody paid attention to this detail, or maybe there were some sources who told the press on purpose that the video footage is lost.

I hope it is with the police... i am aware of the residence footage...but the footage from the 2 bedrooms was missing at the time when the police went to recover it...there was an interview with the company who had installed the cameras, and they said MJ had insisted on the most sophisticated type, out of the three types.. they also said only someone who had the security password or passnumber would be able to control what cameras where disabled or enabled, etc... the footage was automatically transferred to a hard drive, but there was no footage from the two bedrooms... now they said it can be deleted from the hard drive but only with the security number of password... they also said he had ever camera enabled and even had cameras installed into nooks and crannies which they wouldnt have recommended as they was places not frequented by people, but he insisted.... So makes you wonder.

In human life except for love still there are other feelings and emotions and without them the life will not be full.
You here so convince that you are Michael, but any proofs.
P.S. Michael is alive.


Stacey   November 16th, 2009 2:26 pm ET

After reading this article I can't help to be a little angry... Why did it have to take the death of Michael for people to see who he really was as a person.... People were too busy poking fun and trying to ruin his life, but now that he is dead those same people that were out to destory him are always on the television talking about how great Michael was.. It's just a little to late for all that now... Us his fans always knew how great he was... I wish everyone else seen what we saw....

We shouldn't have this doucmentary as his final legacy, we should have Michael on stage alive doing this concert... I have not seen the movie and most likely won't because I feel as if this is not what Michael wanted everyone to see...

REST IN PEACE MICHAEL

lola   November 16th, 2009 2:30 pm ET

I would like to know what interviews in the past 4 years Ms. Dowlin is referring to – Bashir's piece of crap????? MJ didn't give interviews in the past 4 years...he was too busy getting over his public lynching.
Ms. Dowlin, as many other "journalists", are obviously unfamiliar with Jackson as a person and with his music.
The pendulum is swinging and now the trend is to honor Michael. They are all a bunch a media whores never having the courage to stand up for him when he was alive and it was the trend to tear him down.
I echo Mj's words in TII when he says "Thank you, Kenny [Ortega]. God Bless You".....You have given us all a gift, including, most importantly, Michael.
Regarding Janet: I would like to see more happen to Murray than simply just lose his medical license...he should be incarcerated for a very long time for murder #2.
I feel Joe is saying they used body doubles in TII simply so he could sue AEG in a civil case since they have deeper pockets than Murray. This will only hurt this beautiful tribute to Mj and tarnish his legacy. I believe AEG is not responsible, but Murray absolutely is.......

I don't know.. It's hard for me to decide.. On one hand I don't think this is what Michael wanted and on the other it's heartaching just knowing that Michael is not here... He can't see how much people really and truly love him.. Knowing he shouldn't be dead right now.. I don't know. I will think of it though...

I would love to know who was staying at the house that night. I don't believe murray stepped out for minutes but more like hours.


Maria   November 16th, 2009 2:57 pm ET

@ DN
That's right, I remember vaguely that interview. TMZ also confused me when they said any footage was automatically erased every 24 hours, so if the police didn't seize them quickly enough, all evidence would have been lost.
IMO if the info about some footage missing is true, there are only a few possibilities:
1) hard drives missing – stolen (of course, other hard drives than the one with the songs lol)
2) if the hard drives where the rest of the footage was stored were still there, then someone disabled the cameras on purpose; I think only MJ and perhaps some of the bodyguards knew the password, not Tohme, Murray or anyone else
3) if someone had deleted only the files with that particular footage, any such operation leaves traces on the hard disk, so the police (who had confiscated computer hard drives from the house, as they said) already knows if someone had tried to destroy evidence.
Happily, there were so many crimes solved even without video footage as evidence... I hope this will be the case too.

Stacey November 16th, 2009 2:26 pm ET

Stacey-I totally agree with you. The people you refer to also include his family. They claim they saw him just weeks prior to his death yet saw nothing that would cause alarm? And the so called 'intervention' attempt-I've said this before, if it were my brother they would have had to kill me or let me get to him!! And Jermaine sold Michael's intro to the Prince, and he brought that evil Tohme into Michael's life, who knows what he got in exchange...daddy Joe supposedly introduced Michael to Murray. And Janet has a CD coming out, and decided now is a good time to speak about Michael-suspect timing?
I also question how Michael was bringing in over $20 million/year, but was spedning in excess...didn't he have financial advisors who should have said stop?! Maybe they did to no avail. It just doesn't make any sense. I will not see the movie because I will not help line the pockets of AEG/Sony/Tohme, and whoever else is exploiting Michael's death for profit. However I do not judge those who wish to see TII.
The way Michael died is what makes this so difficult to process-at the hands of someone he trusted. Had he been found like Ledger or DJAM, self inflicted, maybe it would not cause such a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. Well, I will get off my soap box now!!!

That is never a good sign.


pat davis   November 16th, 2009 3:32 pm ET

Theres a new blog, its all about the Cirque Du Soleil incorperating a Michael Jackson segment into their show. The segment will feature his music, of course. Right now they are negotiating with Michael's estate. All of these tributes and dedications are great, but I wish they would have given Michael this recognition and praise when he was alive.


Tinkerbell   November 16th, 2009 3:33 pm ET

@Superfly

No it was good things really good things.


Brooklyn1959   November 16th, 2009 3:35 pm ET

@Tink, your meal sounds like a little slice of heaven.

@SJM, we can't hide anything here on this blog, can we? I will check out the new one as well . . .


Tinkerbell   November 16th, 2009 3:36 pm ET

@Brooklyn

It is so I am eating and typing to you guys so I may be a little slow..lol


Superfly Jive-Master   November 16th, 2009 3:39 pm ET

@ Tinkerbell,
What are you eating? Hope not SPotted Dick.


pat davis   November 16th, 2009 3:41 pm ET

Jan,
Another great video....Yes Michael, We Will Stand By You, Forever!


Tinkerbell   November 16th, 2009 3:41 pm ET

@Superfly

I do not eat spotted dick..never tried I dont think I want to lol . But I am eating pork chops,yams,greens,lemon cake,and Ice tea


Brooklyn1959   November 16th, 2009 3:41 pm ET

@SJM, okay, if I cannot mention the gold you-know-whats, you cannot go on about that English dessert . . .

That other blog is weird. I got about halfway through, and they are definitely NOT feeling the love.

@Tink, take your time & enjoy!


Tinkerbell   November 16th, 2009 3:44 pm ET

@Brooklyn1959

Oh I am and it is soo good


Superfly Jive-Master   November 16th, 2009 3:49 pm ET

@ Tinkerbell,
Holy cow, that is a whole lotta food there..dang! I think you could out eat me.
๐Ÿ˜‰

@ Brook,
Yes, I am not going back over there, until some of the folks have cleared outta there. It is too stressfull!


Citing Sources   November 16th, 2009 3:50 pm ET

I'm back. Would love to say I'm not still giggling, but I just got off the phone with the Irishman and spotted dick came up in the conversation. I'm pretty much done in for the day. LOL


Superfly Jive-Master   November 16th, 2009 3:50 pm ET

@ Tinkerbell,
Who cooked it all if you only fix desserts? Because you need to send them here to make your King a meal. He is hungry.


Brooklyn1959   November 16th, 2009 3:51 pm ET

@Tink, yeah, so were ALL MY VEGETABLES, which I thought were tasty enough until you told me what you were eating.

Still kind of strange over on the "white pants" blog; am kind of afraid to join in.


Tinkerbell   November 16th, 2009 3:52 pm ET

@Superfly

I am not going to eat it all at one sitting right now I am eating pork chops and yam, then about 30 min later then I will eat something else.....lol but I don't know I am really hungry.

@Citing Sources

Welcome back homie where ya been?


Superfly Jive-Master   November 16th, 2009 3:52 pm ET

@ Citing,
Oh my, I think someone is going to have Spotted Dick on the brain all day. We better plant something else in there..Maybe a good Styx song perhaps ๐Ÿ˜‰

"You're my Lady..."


Brooklyn1959   November 16th, 2009 3:54 pm ET

@Citing, okay, my salad almost came out through my nose!

Welcome back.


Tinkerbell   November 16th, 2009 3:55 pm ET

@Superfly

My granny fixed it for me I love her.you want to come over?lol

@Brooklyn1959

Aww sorry you should come over..lol


Superfly Jive-Master   November 16th, 2009 3:56 pm ET

@ Broook,
Do not even bother. There is nothing of importance being said over there. Until it clears out of certain people, I will not be going there, and I suggest for you own sanity, to do the same.
๐Ÿ™‚


Citing Sources   November 16th, 2009 3:59 pm ET

@ Tinkerbell

Lunch date with my starving artist. Going through major life turmoil right now and of course his "manager" (me) gets to sweep up the teeny pieces and glue 'em back up. But I just gotta say, it's so damn good to have my bestie back. ๐Ÿ™‚

@ SJM

I am? But I don't even know you! ๐Ÿ˜›
Please put Mr. DeYoung back in his cage.
Ok, it's not my fault about the spotted dick. I couldn't resist saying, "So Keith, spotted dick came up in conversation today and I thought of you." Mwuahahaha.


i wANt yOu baCK   November 16th, 2009 4:00 pm ET

I felt incredibly at peace watching the movie, michael put his whole soul into the rehearsals. Love this so much. Thank you for sharing this with us. Congratulations to Jermaine for making it on the death hoax clip........perhaps the wrong set of words were used.


Brooklyn1959   November 16th, 2009 4:00 pm ET

@Tink, grannies are the best. You are lucky! And thanks for the invite, maybe I will sometime! ๐Ÿ™‚

@SJM, it is enough to juggle work & one blog . . . I will pass on the scary one, for now. Besides, we all play more nicely together.


Tinkerbell   November 16th, 2009 4:00 pm ET

@Citing Sources

Aww well at least you get a break here.lo who is your bestie?


Citing Sources   November 16th, 2009 4:01 pm ET

@ Brooklyn

I think you got a 'mater seed stuck in your nostril there.


Citing Sources   November 16th, 2009 4:03 pm ET

@ Tinkerbell

My lil Irishman. Thick as thieves. He's older of course, but I adopted him as my own years ago. For the past year he's been legally bound to a wretched person, but that's over now (thank God) and we can carry on our epic budship.


Superfly Jive-Master   November 16th, 2009 4:03 pm ET

@ Tinkerbell,
Well, if it is not too much trouble, please send her here. Do you live with your granny? Because of you do, that is super cool!


shaun   November 16th, 2009 4:03 pm ET

Pay close attrention everyone. Citing Sources and Superfly is one in the same. I think someone has MPD


Brooklyn1959   November 16th, 2009 4:05 pm ET

I'm tellin' ya, Citing, I nearly choked–and then I had to stifle it so no one around me could hear!

Please, everyone–NO MORE SPOTTED DICK, at least until I get home! I AM BEGGING YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Citing Sources   November 16th, 2009 4:05 pm ET

Here we go again.


Tinkerbell   November 16th, 2009 4:06 pm ET

@Citing Sources

Aww you have an Irish friend I bet that is cool.

@Superfly

No I do no live with her,I have my own place. I think she is going to have to stay with me...sorry lol


Citing Sources   November 16th, 2009 4:08 pm ET

@ Brooklyn

Ok, truce.

@ Tink

It is the coolest.


Tinkerbell   November 16th, 2009 4:08 pm ET

@shaun

Can you please get off here with things like that....even if they are who cares God.......I like them I know that they are not the same person.


Brooklyn1959   November 16th, 2009 4:08 pm ET

@shaun, then he/she must have 2 computers, because the time stamp on their recent posts is exactly the same.


shaun   November 16th, 2009 4:08 pm ET

Rhiannon, I think the joke is on you this time,not the other way around anymore. Some of your fellow MJHD members are building a case against you. They will present it within 2 days. So watch out and be ready.


Superfly Jive-Master   November 16th, 2009 4:09 pm ET

Oh brother...What the heck? Seriously.


Tinkerbell   November 16th, 2009 4:10 pm ET

@shaun

So are you trying to help or you are ready to attack her.....if so you people need a life.


Superfly Jive-Master   November 16th, 2009 4:12 pm ET

@ Shaun,
I'm sure she is shaking on her...(whatever sort of shoes she is wearing)

MJHD is the biggest farse out there.


Brooklyn1959   November 16th, 2009 4:13 pm ET

@SJM, that is the second time I've heard you bring up "Chess"–did you like that album? My husband worked on the Broadway version in '88–have to say, we ultimately thought it a better album. Stage version a bit awkward; still okay, but wanting.


Superfly Jive-Master   November 16th, 2009 4:15 pm ET

@ Brook,
I just like that song, that is all.


sarah   November 16th, 2009 4:17 pm ET

wonderful article thxs LarrY............ MIchael is ForEver, wHEre He is I hope he HApPY and WeLL............ mISs You MIchael ...........

โ˜ฎ


Tinkerbell   November 16th, 2009 4:18 pm ET

@Superfly

I have never heard that song before until you said it like 2 weeks ago.


Citing Sources   November 16th, 2009 4:20 pm ET

@ SJM

Black pumps.
And I'm not shaking at all. If it's true, then that's cool. Unfortunately for them I could care less what whomever it is is trying to do. They can go ahead and say I eat puppies for breakfast while slapping Tink's granny. Just words. MJHD isn't a farce. I burned myself out on the place and all "hoax" sites in general. But I guess some people just need a hobby. And if attacking me fills that void, yay them! ๐Ÿ˜›

I don't operate in sophomoric mode, nor do I care what people are saying about me. It's the internet for Christ's sake. LMAO


Brooklyn1959   November 16th, 2009 4:20 pm ET

@Citing, thank you for having mercy on me.

Donny Osmond once sang something about the effect of "one bad apple", but I think he was mistaken . . . ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


Just a head's up   November 16th, 2009 4:20 pm ET

Superfly,

Michael is a soul man,he likes music with soul,rhythm. He's a big fan of old school r&b and jazz.


Tinkerbell   November 16th, 2009 4:23 pm ET

@Just a head's up

I think Michael likes all music really


Tinkerbell   November 16th, 2009 4:24 pm ET

@Citing Sources

OMG I am wearing the same shoes that is so crazy.


Brooklyn1959   November 16th, 2009 4:24 pm ET

@SJM, I like it too. I like Murray Head; he was great as Judas in "Superstar".


Superfly Jive-Master   November 16th, 2009 4:25 pm ET

@ Citing,
I knew you were not shaking in your pumps. My opinion is it is a farse, a joke really. We can agree to disagree on that one.

@ Heads Up,
Okay, good for him...Thanks for the Heads Up, Mr Heads up!

I do NOT like jazz. Sooo...


Brooklyn1959   November 16th, 2009 4:27 pm ET

are we all about to board the crazy train here?


Citing Sources   November 16th, 2009 4:27 pm ET

@ Brooklyn

Yep! LOL... and PS, Donny Osmond. Ok, now that made me LOL!

@ Tink

Schweet! Can't wear heels too often b/c it typically makes me 5'10 – 6'0 depending on the shoe and I hate being the amazon.


Superfly Jive-Master   November 16th, 2009 4:28 pm ET

I finally bought the song this weekend and its on my Ipod now, it is a pretty decent workout song.

@ Tinkerbell,
I can not believe you never heard that song before. It was all over the 80's...I had the single and played it over and over trying to get all the words right.

What a waste of time that turned out to be.


Tinkerbell   November 16th, 2009 4:30 pm ET

@Citing Sources

I love shoes alot and clothes but I really love shoes,


Tinkerbell   November 16th, 2009 4:30 pm ET

@Superfly

In the 80's all I was listening to was MICHAEL JACKSON..LOL


Tinkerbell   November 16th, 2009 4:32 pm ET

@Citing Sources

I just bought a new pair of Jimmy Choo and I love them. you want to borrow them?


Brooklyn1959   November 16th, 2009 4:34 pm ET

Tinkerbell November 16th, 2009 4:30 pm ET

@Superfly

In the 80's all I was listening to was MICHAEL JACKSON..LOL

oh, snap!

@Citing, I'll take an inch or two off your hands . . . I'm only 5'5". But then again I'm healthy, so I shouldn't complain.


Superfly Jive-Master   November 16th, 2009 4:34 pm ET

@ Tinkerbell,
Well I suppose I can let that slide..I think we ALL listened to Michael Jackson in the 80's, he owned it! I also got into some hair metal bands breifly in the mid to late 80's. All the Rock from the 80's can not be touched. It was a very good decade tunage wise!


Brooklyn1959   November 16th, 2009 4:36 pm ET

@SJM, it's never a waste of time if it made you happy.


Citing Sources   November 16th, 2009 4:36 pm ET

@ Tink

I'm a random plane ticket girl myself. I have enough shoes. Hehe!


Tinkerbell   November 16th, 2009 4:38 pm ET

@Citing Sources

But the more I keep looking at these shoes the more I think about your burberry bag..and I am thinking about taking them back.


Tinkerbell   November 16th, 2009 4:41 pm ET

@ Citing Sources

A few minutes ago a St. Jude's Children's Hospital commercial came on the tube and I was thinking about you and the bag. I looked at these great shoes, and back to the tv, and yeah I'm thinking about taking them back. Just wanted to know if you wanted to take them for a spin first.

Yeah, I could help more people with the cash. Oh these stupid pretty shoes...what is a fairy to do?


still me just a new name   November 16th, 2009 4:42 pm ET

Jan
_________

Thanks for the video. It was a horrible time for Michael...but omg did he look amazing !!


Citing Sources   November 16th, 2009 4:46 pm ET

@ Tink

Do what brings you joy hun. ๐Ÿ™‚


Brooklyn1959   November 16th, 2009 4:49 pm ET

@Tink, maybe the secret is in the proportion. You should be able to have what you need, and some of what you want, but not let the latter rule your life.

After all, Michael did not exactly deny himself creature comforts, but he also gave so much of his money & time to help others. He struck his own balance.


Timeless   November 16th, 2009 4:52 pm ET

Hello everyone.

Love to you.


Brooklyn1959   November 16th, 2009 4:53 pm ET

Hi, Timeless & Mila


Superfly Jive-Master   November 16th, 2009 4:54 pm ET

@ Brook,
very true...Michael loved to spend it just as much as he liked giving it. Balance is the key. Michael loved to buy things for others too. But he always bought lavish items for himself and his children. I do not think we should deny ourselves special items, just do it in moderation and make sure to donate as much as you spend on yourself. It will all work out in the wash!


Lynn-IL   November 16th, 2009 4:55 pm ET

Hello everyone! Lots to catch up on!! Seems like happy times on the blog today=)


helen   November 16th, 2009 5:04 pm ET

In case everyone missed. Jan just posted some interesting information on the other blog regarding Janet's interviews. When Janet did the Harper's Bizarre magazine, she said she was "on set in Atlanta" when she got the call about Michael. In her ABC interview, she said she was "at her apartment in New York" when she got the call. Even Janet can't get her script correct. ๐Ÿ™‚


Brooklyn1959   November 16th, 2009 5:10 pm ET

Just popped over to the other blog . . . my head is spinning. Too much confusion.


Lynn-IL   November 16th, 2009 5:10 pm ET

Superfly Jive Master-
I like you, you have a good head on your shoulders. Glad your here on the blog!


Brooklyn1959   November 16th, 2009 5:12 pm ET

@Lynn, yes it has been pretty good today, with few exceptions. Hope your day is going well, too.


MJ's PYT/ Superfly sister   November 16th, 2009 5:15 pm ET

OK Murray got off. The baby mama asked to waive that $13,000.
He'll only have to pay $1000+ a month. He goes back to court in
Jan. Hopefully LAPD will be upon it by then.


Jacquelyn   November 16th, 2009 5:19 pm ET

I Miss You Michael. Justice will be served soon.


Superfly Jive-Master   November 16th, 2009 5:23 pm ET

@ Lynn,
Thank You!

@ Superfly Sister,
(i love that song by the way, so good choice) Wonder how Murry will pay that!


K   November 16th, 2009 5:24 pm ET

@Jacquelyn

We all miss him very much. Don't worry, this case is going to blow wide open soon. His murderers will be charged and brought to justice. Michael didn't die in vain.


Superfly Jive-Master   November 16th, 2009 5:25 pm ET

@ Brook,
I TOLD you to stay out of there!
๐Ÿ™‚


Lynn-IL   November 16th, 2009 5:25 pm ET

Brooklyn-
My day is going pretty well, hope yours has been great! I haven't been on all weekend so I am doing some catch up and reading the blogs from the last couple days.


Brooklyn1959   November 16th, 2009 5:44 pm ET

Jeez, I just posted but it didn't stick. Let's try that again . . .

@Lynn, you will have your work cut out for you! Michael is not only the King of Pop, but apparently the King of the Bloggers, as well.

@SJM, my bad. I will from now on be ruled by you (in blog-land, that is!)


JaYme   November 16th, 2009 5:58 pm ET

Hi all..how is everyone doing ???? ๐Ÿ™‚


Brooklyn1959   November 16th, 2009 5:58 pm ET

Guys, I am heading home in a few . . . will catch you all later, in a couple of hours. Family is all out at an event tonight, so I have the computer to myself and can laugh hysterically at whatever I want, so save some of that English dessert for me . . .

Thanks for making my work day go by REALLY FAST!!!!!!!!!!!


Brooklyn1959   November 16th, 2009 5:59 pm ET

@JaYme, catch you later . . . oops, I forgot to write LOVE FEVER today! Damn!


JaYme   November 16th, 2009 6:00 pm ET
