Just for you Vern.

Did anybody read that TMZ article about that MJ letter pulled from auction by Lisa Marie? Reading what once was a private plea for help for his sleeping troubles, and knowing now how that ended, just sad piling upon sad.

Somebody painstakingly remade the "Thriller" video, but as a CGI cartoon. Interestingly, the animators had MJ represented as a monkey because of Bubbles and not because of racism. (Call me naive, I believe them. Nobody would bust their ass on such a production just to hate a guy.)

The entire GHOSTS short film, co-written by MJ and Stephen King. (Awesome make-up job on MJ as the villain.) Directed by the late Stan Winston.

This video is so weird in so many ways. That great MJ combination of cheesy and awesome. I've always loved and been befuddled by it. The strangest part is the references to secrets between Michael and the kids. It just seems so inappropriate, but King wrote in Entertainment Weekly that he strongly believes Michael was innocent. So I don't know what was going on there.

My favorite part is the skeleton. Pretty much until Gollum I think that was the only good use of motion capture. You watch it and you know it's not animated because it's too exactly Michael.

 

Also note that Mos Def plays one of the townspeople watching in awe the whole time. I think he has a line too but I haven't watched it in a while.

I just realized that THE WIZ was on TV last night and I missed it. Damn.

And then he pooped on the podium.

This thread reminds me that I need to re-watch MOONWALKER...

I'm surprised Vern hasn't reviewed MOONWALKER yet, or THE WIZ for that matter.

I remember seeing WIZ years back and despite it's reputation, I kinda enjoyed it? I think the only flaw that really holds it back is the direction.

Look, I adore Sidney Lumet and he's one of the greates in my book but he's the wrong sort of guy to direct a musical if you know what I mean.

Man I thankfully forgot that as this is 6/25, it was exactly 3 years ago since MJ's death.

Off-topic, but honestly I wonder will the inevitable Hollywood musical using his catalogue will happen?

Vern, did you happen to buy that new BAD boxset?

You know I look at it (outtakes/B-sides plus concert) and I think: Why can't Prince do that?

Also, adventures in Disneyland with mob of fans and cursing Mickey Mouse.

I wouldn't call myself a Jacko FAN, but even I am pissed off that something like that 2012 version of BAD, featuring Pitbull and a remix by Afrojack exists. Come on, really? You can't tell me there are some more talented or even really legendary artists and remixers out there, who would love to participate in something like this, but you have to go with Pitbull and Afrojack?

And then he pooped on the podium.
