i have been laid up almost two weeks with what i thought was a bad cold. after seeing my kindly old family doctor (who is kind of cute in an odd way - his hands are so soothing and comforting),
anyway i discovered i actually have a mild flu and stuff in my lungs. why am i mentioning this? because being laid up gives you time to do stuff you don't normally do, so when i was getting medicine i got that movie This Is It with Michael Jackson. i just have to say, i always felt he deserved to be called the King of Pop, but after watching this, i knew i was watching something incredible. you are, basically, watching genius create a legend when you watch Michael in action. that is what he was - a genius. anyway i am going to write a hub about it when i feel 100%. in the meantime, get the movie and watch it - you won't be disappointed.
p.s. i hope they take away his doctor's medical license and put him in prison.
Hope you get better fast Cosette! not fun being sick that's for sure.
His old GP's license has already been taken.
And I agree with you. I never really listened to him, and I was forced to see this movie in the theatre, but I was not sorry after about a half an hour of this movie. It's amazing. A work of art. This man is a genius. He's a complete, huge and utter weirdo, but he's a GENIUS!
yeh - I feel the same about that movie - was surprised but really spellbound while watching it and afterward listened to his music in a whole new way!
Flu is no fun, mild or not. I went through two versions just before Christmas. My immune system is still trying to recover. But I'm getting there!
MJ does deserve the accolades he gets. He'll always be controversial, and he was obviously a tortured soul, and wasn't all that mentally stable. He victimized people, too. Though not trying to justify any of his wrong doings on others, he does fall in a group of genius-like people who never could live a normal life. Though it's sad in that regard, he did leave the world with a standard and vision of his craft that we would probably miss entirely without him. He influenced and molded two generations, not just one. He is still imitated throughout the globe.
I haven't seen the movie but plan to very soon.
Get better quickly! Looking forward to the hub.
Sorry to hear you have been under the weather. Hope you recover soon.
I want to see This Is It also. He was an amazing musical talent.
I hope you get better. I seen the movie already and it is so amazing how much talent Michael had. That would have been a great concert!!
oh, "spellbound" is just the word i was looking for. thanks, you guys. anyway that film is loaded with lots of info about his costumes, which in itself is worth renting it...and he was making some really cool videos too. i think this tour would have made him a living legend.

My Thoughts: Greatest Entertainer of All Times. Even thought there are lots of controversies associated with him, I find him the most down to earth man.

As a musician and music lover, I have grappled with an answer to this question since MJ's sad passing, if there ever will be one.To me, good music entertains us. But great music must inspire and fuel passion within us....

Yep you heard it here first - he climbed out the back of the coroner's van! Well that's what people will have you beleive anyway! I also heard he's living with Elvis for a week or two until the media coverage calms down!

My opinion is that Michael Jackson was a kid toucher, bottom line. I loved Jackson's music when I was a kid, but when he started bleaching his skin and wearing shin guards, I realized something wasn't quite right...
