Thriller scarred me as a child as well. The opening sequence still hits a few nerves, as I just realized 20 minutes ago.

Wheres the beef?

i ruined my parent's copy of thriller trying to scratch when i was a wee one, i also used to have recurring nightmares that the MJ from thriller was just standing in my room and i'd run into my parent's room SCREAMING that michael jackson was coming to get me. one of my two best girlfriends has stood by him all these years, even through the trials, and we used tos pend countless hours watching the wiz & jackson 5 videos. he was a huge part of my development as well, just horrible.

RIP!

So, if MJ did a US tour, does he sell out multiple nights around the country? I was looking back at his last full US tour back in 1987-1988 and he finished with 5 nights in LA. He did three in every major market and 2 in every smaller market (indianapolis, kansas city, st. louis) I think he did 4 in DC as well a couple in Denver and many other places. Anyway, he did not do a full US tour since then. How do you think a new tour would have sold?

I'm thinking he would have continued to sell out arenas. Maybe not the 4 and 5 nights in a row he used to sell out but I don't think he would have had trouble. Some seemed to think he wouldn't have done well because of his reputation being damaged and no new songs and such. I don't buy it. There would have been huge demand in my opinion bases on how long it has been for starters.

I can understand the top itunes song thing, that makes sense. Download one song and listen to it, appreciate the legend, etc., and move on.

But how many people who don't have much money to spare with the way things are sat on a computer yesterday and said to themselves..."Hmm...MJ's dead so now I really gotta buy his stuff...let's see...I could lose my job any day, my wife is disabled and can't work so I gotta provide...spend $35 on food? or Michael Jackson's HIStory double cd?

guessing there wasn't much demand for the music before this happened so they probably didn't keep a huge stock on hand to begin with.

i like to remember back to the first time I saw mike do the moonwalk during his Billy Jean performance at motown, or the first time i saw Thriller on MTV back in the day.. or the first time i really started appreciating PYT or Human Nature..

but for fuq sakes the last 15 years have been one trainwreck after another for this poor bastard... im sure his in house cardiologist was giving him a nice dose of oxycodone, buphenorphine and hydrocodone after a hard days work for all his aches and pains gearing up for the big tour.. and then each morning a nice wakey wakey shot full of god knows what stimulants a cardiologist could prescribe...

having a live in doctor prescribing anything you wanted would make me pretty happy.. that is until my heart stopped..

but in all seriousness, i'm sure he had his moments like everyone else.. what I still can't fathom is why he had soooooo much plastic surgery.. he was such a good looking kid back in the early 80's.. I think i heard donald trump say it best last night, on some random michael jackson tribute show regarding his plastic surgery.. "Michael what the fuq are you doing?"

i just watched captain eo for the first time on the youtube link.. now I know where George got the idea for Jar Jar.. aka Hooter. michael had such a sweet voice.. know wonder why lil boys flocked to him..

the final days:

As the London concerts approached, something was clearly wrong. Jackson had vowed to travel to England at least eight weeks before his first shows, but he kept putting it off.
‘To be honest, I never thought Michael would set foot on a concert stage ever again,’ said one aide, choking back tears on the evening of his death.
‘This was not only predictable, this was inevitable.’
On June 21, Jackson told my contact that he wanted to die. He said that he didn’t have what it would take to perform any more because he had lost his voice and dance moves.
‘It’s not working out,’ Jackson said. ‘I’m better off dead. I don’t have anywhere left to turn. I’m done.’
Michael’s closest confidante told me just two hours after he died that ‘Michael was tired of living. He was a complete wreck for years and now he can finally be in a better place. People around him fed him drugs to keep him on their side. They should be held accountable.’

In the wake of his death, Michael has proven to me a very interesting truth--if you are a great enough artist, I do not give a flying fuck what heinous acts you might have committed in your personal life. You can be a kid fucker, and you know what? Fuck it. I don't care. Kids probably deserved it. In fact, I'll take a step further--if Michael wanted to fuck little boys, we should have just let him.

Dude was single-handedly the absolute biggest musical figure in the world. Sold TWICE as many albums as the next nearest competitor. When you think about him having sold twice more albums than The Beatles, or Elvis, or whoever you want to bring up (the actual runner-up is AC/DC, surprisingly), it's kinda nuts.

Its weird but now I feel bad for how we (the world) treated him. We don't KNOW that he was a pedophile... a psychiatrist explained during the trial that he was a regressed 10 year old and probably not capable of it. Who knows. Ultimately the allegations seem to be what first drove him into seclusion, and then killed him.

I always just assumed he was a total loon, but having done a bit of reading in the last few days it sounds like a lot of the early weird behaviours (wearing veils, being photographed asleep in a hyperbaric chamber) were botched promotional stunts on his part. Then the media went to town on him. It DOES sound like he had body dismorphic disorder, and a plastic surgery addiction. He was probably gay. Those aren't crimes.

Anyway, I kinda hope he WAS a pedophile, because then we aren't responsible for this.

Apparently he:

* Weighed 112 lbs?
* Only pills were found in his stomach?
* He was nearly bald?
* His body was covered in scars and needle marks?

Oh MJ, I'm so sorry, I wish someone could've helped you. I had truly forgotten how much I loved Michael Jackson until MTV and VH1 started showing all his music videos. I loved him so much when I was a kid, his songs but more than anything his music videos. They were just so epic to me and for some reason the "Black or White" video really stands out for me, I guess cuz I was a kid when it premiered but that song was so catchy and I LOVED the end where everyone's faces morphed into each other. I've been trying to teach myself some of his dance moves not expecting to really get them but its just so much fun to try.

Also, I literally watched my VHS copy of this every single day when I was a kid, maybe twice a day. I havent seen it in so long so I can only remember bits and pieces but it was just so awesome. I loved it when he turned into a robot at the end.

I think the evidence is pretty conclusive myself. This is a man who fathered children and who got into bed with young boys. Even if he didn't bugger them he still was guilty in my mind.

So CNN was interviewing papa Joe Jackson and I found this odd when I watched it live. It's pretty scummy to squeeze in a plug for your new record label when being interviewed about your dead son right?

He had all these boys sleeping in his bed. With him. Jackson never denied this; his defense was that 'nothing inappropriate' happened. Under the law you have to actually have sexual contact and his accusers were unable to persuade a jury that this had happened beyond a reasonable doubt.

the sad part about michael is that the abused go on to be the abuser. considering what has come out about his childhood it would not surprise me that he acted inappropriately with children. it's a vicious cycle. in a lot of ways i think he mentally was still a child, though.

See, a bunch of kids in pajamas watching Disney or Nicholodean on Michaels bed doesn't sound like conclusive evidence of anything to me. My son who shares no blood relation to me, who is 11 years old climbs up on the bed to watch tv sometimes. If kids have sleepovers, I can see a few kids on a giant bed all hanging out and watching tv together as well with parents.

Now I wouldn't invite a bunch of kids into my bed but it doesn't seem that far fetched to me and it certainly doesn't convince me of any wrong doing.

It's not in my personality to say "hey kids, jump up here and watch tv". If they did I wouldn't jump up and say "woah woah everyone off the bed now because I know nothing inapropriate will happen.

Michael was definitely messed up from a very young age. My "theory" is that Michael was in fact regressed to about age 10. Once he finally went solo and got his own place and built neverland ranch that was his way of trying to reclaim the childhood he never had. Since he was raped of his childhood and not allowed to have fun he wanted to ensure that every child he ever met got to enjoy life and love being a kid and he relived that with each and every one of them. I don't think he was mentally capable of ever harming a child in any way. He never got over the fact that his father didn't let him be a child for a minute. His father beat him and he really had no advocates. His mother minded the father, the brothers and sisters all built up a resentment towards Michael for his stand out success. Janet was the only one that didn't hold that against him. He stopped the pattern. As he was growing up he most likely made the pledge to himself that he would never take a childhood away from a kid because he grew up scared, abused and miserable. His success was ultimatley his escape. There is no doubt in my mind that Joe Jackson was a monster.

I have never seen any conclusive evidence, this wasn't like the OJ trial where we had blood or DNA. These trials looked like money grabs and I think they both were.

Once you are accused your name never gets cleared. The toll a trial would have taken on him was not worth it so he paid. It's one thing to hear a bunch of accusations but it's another when you have to hear it for 10 times as long and go to court for months and months defending yourself over and over and hoping people believe you.


To me the fucked up part is that Michael's parents are claiming Katherine the mother should now raise the kids. Sure Michael wanted that because he loved his childhood so much :rolleyes

I sure hope a will surfaces soon.

I respect your opinion, fax. But I think the large payout suggests guilt, added with the fact he kept repeating the behavior (having "innocent" sleepovers). Prior to the second court case, I read an interview with one of the detectives on the first case and I think that has colored my opinion. I respectfully agree to disagree with the majority of the board members who believe he is innocent.

He shouldn't have done it, you're correct. He should have known better, especially after the first accusation. He definitely shouldn't have talked about it on TV.

Regardless of whether or not he touched them, he should have known the accusations would have been made. These sorts of accusations are leveled at celebrities all the time by opportunistic creeps who only see dollar signs. They're usually aquitted. Michael received less sympathy because of his other weird behaviour.

The larger payout just means the family asked for more money and at the end of the day we all saw how frivolous MJ was with money so that means little to me. The fact that he kept doing it shows me that he knew he wasn't doing anything wrong. I don't think he was trying to be brazen. We can disagree though, I simply haven't seen enough to make that type of judgment against him.

Especially when you have the kid on tape talking dollar figures in one case and in the other the kid described the MJ's cock and the cops examined MJ's cock and it didn't match. It seemed there were way too many holes in both stories to prove he was guilty of anything.

Jackson became slimmer in the early 1980s because of a change in diet and a desire for "a dancer's body".[13] By 1984, Jackson had lost 20 pounds (9.1 kg), bringing his weight to 105 pounds (48 kg) for 5 foot 9, the slimmest he had ever been as an adult.[24] Witnesses reported that Jackson was often dizzy and speculated that he was suffering from anorexia nervosa.[24] Following accusations of child molestation in 1993, Jackson stopped eating, losing even more weight.[25] In late 1995, Jackson was rushed to a hospital after collapsing during rehearsals for a televised performance (which was subsequently cancelled); the incident was caused by a stress-related panic attack.[26] The BBC reported that during his 2005 trial, the singer again suffered from stress-related illnesses and severe weight loss.

The children are far from all the singer leaves behind. The promoters of his planned 50-concert comeback recorded the singer's extravagant rehearsals at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and could soon release a live album and DVD, The Wrap reported. "We have a live album in the can," the entertainment site quoted an AEG executive as saying.

Could be good. The DVD part, not really a live album, unless he actually was singing live.

Behold Big Brother's most misbegotten icon, and a very greasy chapter in British journalism.

Big Brother turned her into a figure of ridicule, because she was unbelievably thick. Afterwards, when she got out of the BB house and could read her own press, the tone changed altogether and she became a kind of cuddly chav heroine. She was brought back for a later series, whereupon she sort of participated in a bit of racist bullying - live on webcast, bear in mind - and sparked an international incident. Then she got cancer and died, most of it while being recorded by fly-on-the-wall documentary crews.

When she got married towards the end, at least one newspaper doctored the photos to make her look more ill.

Sounds like he was prepared to go out with a bang so to speak.


Michael Jackson spent the last night of his life doing what he had always done: performing. The singer was in rehearsals at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, running through a full slate of songs from his upcoming 50-concert London event flanked by friends and colleagues. He marveled at the major set pieces that had finally been installed in the rehearsal space. "He was just glowing, and you could see it, that he was finally seeing it all come together," says Dorian Holley, the vocal director for Jackson's upcoming tour. "Up until Wednesday, it had always been [just a concept], but that last day you could see it in him, that he was seeing the show finally come together for the first time. It was a big moment." (See TIME's complete Michael Jackson coverage.)

Holley says he left rehearsals just before midnight on the night of June 24, as Jackson headed off to attend yet more meetings. About 12 hours later, a 911 call would be placed from Jackson's home in Holmby Hills, reporting urgently that "he's not breathing ... He's not responding to CPR, anything."

The pop icon had seemed different during these rehearsals - not ailing by any means, but perhaps more contemplative - says Holley, who has coached Jackson on solo tours since 1987. In preparing for previous tours, Holley said auditions for backup singers and other performing roles would usually be held via videotape, and it wouldn't be all that uncommon for the two to speak directly only two or three times over the span of a year. But for "This Is It," the London concerts scheduled to begin in July, Jackson was much more present and available, attending auditions and eagerly talking with everyone in the crew about the larger mission behind the tour. (See TIME's photos: "The Young Michael Jackson at Home.")

"It almost sounds crazy to say that the show wasn't about him, but ... he'd put it in perspective all the time, saying, 'This is what we're here for, to spread a message of love and taking care of the planet, that we want people to understand it's very, very dear and not to take it for granted,'" Holley tells TIME. (See TIME's top 10 Jackson moments.)

Until the last hour of rehearsals, Jackson maintained a ferocious, perfectionist pace, says Holley, who, after decades working with the singer, says he was still astonished by his vocal and physical prowess. Some in the public questioned whether Jackson, at 50, would still be able to command a stage, and recent reports published Sunday in Britain's Daily Mail said that Jackson had been too feeble to dance, sing or, at times, even speak in the weeks leading up to his death. But, Holley - despite his own early concerns about a lack of rehearsal time leading up to the first London shows in July - says the star's presence and energy during his final week was unequivocal. "He'd take the stage with this group of dancers, all in their 20s, but you couldn't take your eyes off him ... Many of his songs have six or seven parts, and he would often come over if we were missing an important note in our mix, and he would sing through all the parts rapid-fire to show us what he wanted. We would just sit there with our jaws open - it was awesome," Holley says. "He could still do everything ... The only difference now was that he would sometimes talk about how it made him sore." (Hear TIME's top 10 Jackson songs.)

"This time around, we had the technology to isolate just his microphone and listen to his singing separate from everything else. I had no idea what a genius he was. The way he's able to use his voice as a percussion instrument, lyricist, jazz singer all at the same time. I'm sure as people mine his works in years to come, they're going to discover how much is there," he says.

It was a text message on Thursday afternoon that gave Holley the first hint of bad news - a note saying Jackson had been rushed to the hospital. Neither he nor the crew knew how to react to the uncertainty, so they did what they always did - they went in to rehearse. Except this time, as fans all over the world from Los Angeles to New York City to Tokyo to Buenos Aires played his music, sang his songs and emulated his dance in tribute, Holley says the crew couldn't bring themselves to touch the music.

Jackson had been preparing to take the world back, Holley says, and during the singer's final night, he finally knew he was ready. "You would think that, on the one hand, the world has kind of beaten him up, and you could forgive him for having some trepidation and fear. But he didn't have any of that," says Holley. "Words fail to describe what people would have seen with the tour. I couldn't even imagine until last week when it became physically apparent [on the set]. He was ready to show the world, and I so wish there could have been just one concert so the world would have seen."

One of my earliest memories of MJ.

Way to make me cry, Tom.
Me too.
The news of it all contributed to the later start we got in getting to EDC this past weekend. It was so surreal. I can't recall spending that much time glued to a TV since 9/11! Once the weekend started, it was still in the back of my mind, and everytime someone mixed in some MJ, I danced looking up and said a special prayer. Here was a man who sacraficed any sort of real life to make such an impact on so many of our lives. Seeing this video made me hope that maybe perhaps at the time it was made, he had had some sort of life, with dreams ahead, instead of the virtual nightmare it had become near the end. I hope now, that like "Ben," he'll find what he was looking for...RIP Micheal~

I don't know many pop stars that don't use at least partial tracks. It wouldn't have been entirely lyp synced. I think parts of songs were lip synced and the bad tour had very little real vocals. I don't think it would have bothered me so much seeing how his performances go.

Ooh. This sounds like it could have been truly EPIC!
--------
(from AP)

Two weeks before he died, Michael Jackson wrapped up work on an elaborate production dubbed the "Dome Project" that could be the final finished video piece overseen by the King of Pop, The Associated Press has learned.

Jackson was apparently preparing to dazzle concert audiences in London with a high-tech show in which 3D images - some inspired by his "Thriller" era - would flash behind him as he performed on stage.

"It was a groundbreaking effort," said Vince Pace, whose company provided cameras for the shoot, a 3D system he created with filmmaker James Cameron.

"To think that Michael’s gone now, that’s probably the last documented footage of him to be shot in that manner," Pace said.

Two people with knowledge of the secretive project confirmed its existence Monday to the AP on condition they not be identified because they signed confidentiality agreements.

They said it was a five-week project filmed at Culver Studios, which 70 years ago was the set for the classic film "Gone With the Wind." Four sets were constructed for Jackson’s production, including a cemetery recalling his 1983 "Thriller" video.

With 3D technology "the audience would have felt like they were visiting the ’Thriller’ experience, like they were there," Pace said.

Shooting for the project lasted from June 1-9, with Jackson on the set most days. The project was in post-production, at the time of Jackson’s death, and had been expected to be completed next month. It was not immediately clear what would be made of the video footage now.

Producer Robb Wagner, founder of music-video company Stimulated Inc., did not immediately return a message seeking comment on the project.

Michael Roth, a spokesman for Jackson’s Los Angeles-based promoter AEG Live, said he hadn’t heard about the production but did not rule that it could be part of the company’s contract with the entertainer.

According to one of the people with knowledge of the project, a willow-thin, pallid Jackson left a memorable impression on the crew, arriving in a caravan of SUVs with hulking security guards in tow. The person said Jackson introduced himself to workers on the set and walked with a spring in his step but at one point needed assistance as he descended steps off a stage.

Besides the cemetery, one set was draped in black with an oversized portrait of Jackson in his "Thriller" werewolf costume. Another set was designed to simulate a lush jungle, and a fourth was built to replicate a construction site, with a screen in the back to allow projection of different backgrounds.

Taping took place in marathon sessions ending early in the morning. One scene filmed on the construction site set included scantily clad male dancers wearing carpenter’s belts.

According to Stimulated’s Web site, the company was hired to produce screen content for Jackson’s planned comeback concerts in London. Stimulated has worked with Def Leppard and the Pussycat Dolls, and produced content for the Academy Awards and the Emmys.

Last year, U2 released the concert film "U2 3D," a film of the band’s 2005-06 Vertigo tour, shot at several shows in South America with 3-D technology.

At the time, guitarist The Edge told The Associated Press the 3-D technology allowed "the songs to shine through."

So I decided to sidle the fuck up in that spot and argue that someone that talented is entitled to absolution for at least a couple terrible vices, and since he had only one and is probably as talented a performer as anyone can ever be said to be he should therefore in fact be not only free and clear of all the kids he molested but he died with an extra get out of jail free card unused.

-he's definatly lip-synching there. tho, that may just be because they were rehearsing dance moves or, like his last 2 tours, would sing live on some and not on others.
-regardless, its not as if this clip should represent the entire show that could have been.

Phew. Sorry, i just needed to put salah in his place :D

ANYWAYS
It's weird that they are releasing all these pictures and home movies of his kids now.
I saw a video earlier where MJ was with his kids at Disneyland Paris and taking pictures of his kid with Mickey and gang in an apparently private room somewhere.
Also MJ says a line at one of his kids birthday party's after a present is opened that made me lolerz.
"We have some trash, we need some assistance. Trash, people."

Allegedly. I think he did it himself, he just hated being black. Look at his kids

HunterGather

Supposedly the vitiligo was creating pigments and stuff on his skin.
As a result, over time starting around the thriller era, he started getting his skin lightened all around. Theres some photos showing light blotches on his arms and neck from back in the day, but i can't be bothered to find them.

In any case, he totally effed himself up.

And yes, his kids are his kids but they aren't HIS kids.
I don't think he wanted black or mixed children.

But aren't his kids just the cutest anyway? :D

this is rad, from that message board(there are a ton of amazing studio stories from a couple guys on there):

"By the way, to elaborate a bit on the Notorious B.I.G. session, it was kinda like this. Michael used to call people to ask them to participate on albums. It was interesting knowing that nearly anyone on the planet would come to the phone if it were Michael calling. Anyway, I heard rumors that B.I.G. was going to come, and I was excited about that! I knew that I would be the one to record that, as I had recorded nearly all of that tune, "This Time Around".

So, Dallas and I were expecting him any minute, and pretty much on time, Notorious strolls in. He was quite an imposing figure when he walked in, as he was quite popular at the time. I had no idea what to expect from him in terms of attitude, but he seemed nice when he walked in. No problem. But almost immediately, he blurted out, "Yo, Dallas, can I meet Mike?" To which, Dallas replied that he thought so. Biggie went on to talk about how much this opportunity meant to him, as Michael was his hero. Anyway, Dallas tells him that we're going to lay down the rap first, so Biggie heads in the booth, we get some headphone levels and get ready to start recording.

So, we hit the big red button (on a Sony 3348 machine), and away we go. During his first take, Dallas and I looked at each other, because it was spot on. wow. I was impressed, and so was Dallas. We listened back, and Dallas was like, "Wow, I think we got it". As I recall, we took another take for good measure, but I'm fairly certain that we ended up using the first take. So, Notorious comes in, and asks if he can meet Michael now. We sent word to the back room where Michael was working that Biggie was finished and wanted to meet him.

Simply for security, Michael's security would enter and make sure that no one was in the room that shouldn't be, and once that was confirmed (it was just me, Biggie and Dallas), Michael came in. Biggie nearly broke out in tears...I could tell how much this meant to him. Well, Michael could have this effect on anyone, even the most hardcore rappers! Biggie was tripping up on his words, bowing down and telling Michael how much his music had meant to him in his life. Michael was, as always, very humble and kept smiling while Biggie just went on and on how much he loved Michael. I watched Biggie just become this big butterball of a man, and it was really very sweet to witness. After all, we are all just people.

Michael finally asked to hear what we had done, and we popped it up on the big speakers and let her go. Michael LOVED it and was excited to tell Biggie that! "Oh, let's hear it again", I recall Michael saying, and we listened again. Michael just loved it...and thanked Biggie for coming all the way from Philadelphia. Biggie asked rather sheepishly whether he could get a photo, and Michael agreed. A shot was taken, we listened again, and Michael thanked Biggie. Michael said goodbye and stepped out, leaving Biggie standing there looking completely stunned."

I'll tell you what.

I want John Landis to talk about Michael Jackson for about an hour. I want someone to film it, and I want somebody else to broadcast it. And that will be pretty much the only tribute the man needs, as far as I'm concerned.

He also sued him over the use of Thriller... so hopefully an interview wouldn't be bitter...

Oh wow, that was really recent...

You would think something would have came up about that like..back in the 80s...
or even when they worked together in the early 90s for Black Or White...
