Michael Jackson

Completely off-topic. My wife and I just finished watching the Michael Jackson interview by this idiot Martin Bashir. At first, we're amazed at the bizarre man Jackson has turned into. The video clips of himself as a youngster, lead singer of the Jackson 5, are incredible. Even his later albums are great. This is a person blessed with a gift. Unfortunately, he's now an eccentric millionaire that has surrounded himself with yes-people and, my wife and I are convinced after watching this show, has completely convinced himself that he's still a kid.

As the interview continues however, we start to see something beyond a regular interview. Yellow journalism at its best. Why would we expect differently? This is fucking 20/20, the bastion of judgemental, sensational, slanted, slandering journalism. Bashir questions are bracketed by his personal comments on how disturbed and shocked he is of it all.

Yes, if a *mature* 44 year old man invited my boys to sleep in bed with him, I would find it extremely weird, to the point of physical confrontation. But a 44 year old man that says he dreams of climbing trees and having water balloon fights? This is not some married man that's leading a double-life of perversion. This is an emotionally stunted man that has used his millions to hire folks and buy possessions that let him stay in a world of childhood. At one point, the camera, as if in shock, focuses on Jackson holding the hand of a 14 year old boy, as they discuss how it's fine that this boy and his brother have slept in his bed. Mind you, not WITH Jackson, no, he instead sleeps in a sleeping bag while his guests sleep in his bed. Bashir is in an absolute panic. How horrifying for a man to be seen holding a boys hand. In this day and age of abusive catholic priests, family child abuse cases, foster care systems run amok, and who knows what else, to see someone hold onto the idealism of childhood innocence and love is not high up on my worry-meter.

As for the bed issue... do I really have to draw a picture here? Do you honestly believe that Jackson's bed is some twin-size posturepedic purchased from Dial-A-Mattres? (leave the last S off for $avings!). I can only imagine it's a fucking wonderland draped in decadence. I bet if I saw it, I'd want to sleep in it! So yes, these kids show up, get a tour of the house, and beg to sleep in that bed. "Why don't you put them in the guest rooms?" Yes, I'm a kid and I can sleep in some lonely guest room or I could hang out with this 'older' kid that has bought any and every toy ever made, and he gets to do whatever he pleases. No, I'm done with the party, put me to bed! Even on the occasions that he does in fact sleep with the kids in the same bed, I haven't seen any evidence to suggest that he's up to any sexual shenanigans.

Don't get me wrong. MJ is a freakish man-boy that is wealthy enough to keep his deranged fantasy of eternal youth alive and kicking. He has carved his face up like a pumpkin and deludes himself into thinking his kids are going to lead 'normal' lives. But does that make him a pedophile that should be thrown in jail or have his kids taken from his custody? I don't think so. And to suggest otherwise as these idiots at 20/20 and Granada Productions have is an outrage.

i watched the interview. i agree with what u say. i think mj is weird, but i have hope that there are still people with innocent and just intentions and with love in their hearts, even if it is emotionally stunted.

I am so tired of journalists these days! They do more harm than good! Leave Michael Jackson alone! This Bashir is a total IDIOT! What a sorry piece of journalism! I was never a Michael "Fan", but I am NOW!!

Jacko, there are things that just aren't done, and you're doing at least one of them - putting yourself under suspicion. It may be in your best interests to locate some adults who are not related to you or beholden to you and talk to them about what it means to be real. It may prove enlightening.

It's there, it's linked to your name. :)

Thanks for the link. I've seen it before.

Posted by: Miguel on February 11, 2003 12:55 PM

While the media is slanted and unfair, it does not change the fact that Jacko is a child molester. In my opinion, and in the opinion of the family that sued him. I believe the family of the abused boy, NOT the media. Just because the media are a bunch of ratings whores, does not mean you should be taking the side of this sick, twisted man-boy. You probably all think OJ is innocent as well. Bah!

Posted by: Paul on February 14, 2003 1:28 PM

OJ should fry. Thanks for your comments.

Michael j is no kid abuser.One unproven allegation.Why would he risk everything,I dont
think so Paulo.Bashir is just an idiot who
made MJ look bad in this interview, the editing
and voice overs were all S**T.

Posted by: rice burner on February 15, 2003 3:33 AM

The facts, frankly, are this.

1. In 1993, there was one--repeat ONE--allegation of sexual abuse aimed at Michael Jackson. He never went to trial, as he settled out of court by paying the accusing family. While most witch-hunters would like to say that this means he's guilty, our system of government clearly states that everyone is innocent until proven otherwise, not the other way around.

2. Michael Jackson claims that he shares his bedroom with children who are not his own, but that it is not a sexual thing. The children have no comment on what he's doing, if he's doing anything at all.

3. He denies that he has had plastic surgery more than two times, despite the dramatic change in his appearance over the years. He stated at one point during the interview (unless I misheard, which is possible) that he was four years old, and that he believes that he is Peter Pan.

The fact is, therefore, that Michael may or may not be sexually abusing children. As far as I can see--not just with the Bashir interview, but with other incidences, like nearly throwing his child out of a window--the man has some profound psychological problems. They don't warrant a prison cell, but they probably warrant a small, nicely padded room. People who can consider all the facts and still believe otherwise are living in their own version of Neverland.

WOW! What a masterful child molestor. 1 case in all his life, which had more holes than the titanic. Why aren't there more? Why do the parents let the kids stay over? Maybe because they get to know the man and what he's about. Does anyone ever think why he is still friends with many of the kids that had sleep overs with him? Or why they didn't speak out when they got older. eg: Macauly Culkin and that kid that won the dancing competion in the 90's. Someone answer me this please.

The man wouldn't harm a fly. He's like a male Mother Thresa and should be made a saint rather than being lynched.

Noctavis, I demand that you let me know if you're still in Utah. : )

Posted by: Tychomax on February 26, 2003 10:33 AM

OKAY, FOR ONE THING FOR ALL YOU PEOPLE WHO SAY MICHAEL JACKSON DID MOLEST A 13 YEAR OLD BOY, IT'S NOT TRUE! SURE HE SAYS IT TO, BUT I KNOW FOR SURE IT'S NOT TRUE.HOW CAN I PROVE THAT YOU ASK? WELL THAT'S EASY.HE WAS BEING FRAMED!I DOWNLOADED A CLIP ON IT.IT WAS ON TV A FEW YEARS AGO.THEY SAID THAT THE BOY'S FATHER WAS TRYING TO RUINE MICHAEL BY TELLING FALSE STORIES ABOUT HIM.AND ANOTHER THING I HAVE TO GET ON.THE MARTIN BARSIR DUD.I WOULDN'T CALL IT BETRAYAL, BUT HE DID'T HAVR TO BE SO NOSY. AND SPEAKING OF NOSY, I DO BELIEVE THAT HE ONLY HAD 2 NOSE JOBS BECAUSE THE FIRST REASON WAS WHEN MICHAEL WAS ABOUT 19 OR 20 YEARS OLD, HE GOT ONE NOSE JOB FOR FALLIN OFF THE STAGE AT ON OF HIS PERFORMANCES.i DON'T QUITE KNOE THE SECOND REASON YET. BUT ANYWAYS, WHAT I'M TRYIN TO SAY IS,LEAVE MICHAEL JACKSON ALONE. HE HASEN'T DONE ANYTHING TO YOU BUT ENTERTAIN YOU.

Posted by: christan on July 22, 2003 1:02 PM

I would just like to say that i think that MJ seems like such a nice man. I love listening to his music because he sings with such expression and feeling. He is the best dancer i have ever seen it's amazing how he can feel the music like that. I think MJ seems to be very sensitive with his feelings and has deep emotions.
I feel sorry for the way he is treated by the tabliods, i don't think he deserves it after everything he has given. He has inspired me to make this world a better place, and just to help people who are less fortunate than i.
He is such a talented artist and i think we should all respect him.
I think he is still quite young in his heart and maybe a little imature but who cares.
I wish everyone will stop thinking that MJ is freaky because they are just judging him on his looks but if you really listen to what he says in interviews you can really tell that he is really loving and caring kind of person who thinks that just to love someone is the most important gift you could give a person. For MJ to just be able to sing like he does you could'ent think he is a bad person because he sings with so much feeling and love and his lyrics he writes have seemed like their has been i lot of thought into what he writes and i think is songs is a way of expressing himself and his feelings. I think it would have been sad for him to not a normal childhood because he was always forced to grow up so quickly. You should enjoy your childhood for as long as possible.
I think that it is good thing that he is so different and eccentric because who would like to be like everyone else. The only thing i don't understand about MJ is why he got Plastic Surgery when he said in his oxford speech that we should love the way we look even though we are only preety in our mothers eyes. But God created him and so i don't understand why he would want to change something that God has given him.
I am MJ biggest fan and one of the reasons i like him so much is because his personality seems so different to anyone i have ever met.
He is such a great entertainer, dancer and singer.
You are the best MJ

I agree with the author.

Posted by: whois on August 22, 2003 10:01 PM

i have seen so many of these messege boards and posted my comments on a fair few of them too. i am tired of telling people that Michael Jackson is COMPLETELY innocent now, but being tired of saying it will NEVER stop me from defending him! i will continue to defend him to my grave. Michael Jackson is a brilliant performer regardless of what anyone thinks and rumours aided by the media (in other words a load of lies cooked up by sick journalists to sell their newspapers)can never take that away from him. it really makes me sick and breaks my heart when people say that Michael Jackson is an irresponsible father! who is capeable of saying something so cruel and untrue? Michael, you're a wonderful parent. Your children are so blessed to have you as their dad. we are all blessed to have you in our lives and for that i am so grateful. i can never express in words just how grateful i am and if you read this i just wanted to let you know that i love you so much - to the moon and back! lol. You mean so much to me! i just wanna say THANKYOU to all the MJ fans out there and i love you all! Thankyou for everything Michael. Whenever i am upset, i ALWAYS, without hesitation, turn to your music. Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou. love Julia. x x x

Posted by: Rachel smith on November 13, 2003 8:26 PM

look, he just got a warrant out for his arrest....so yes, michael is a child-@$$ raping sicko. Who said he was a good man? with a good heart? He's a sick and twisted, child molesting, sexually challenged, racially confused moron, and the most absolutly disgraceful public image to ever walk the face of the earth. end.

Posted by: David on November 19, 2003 6:15 PM

Here's an ordinary Aussie's point of view. I think with MJ it is a lynching. Pure and simple. Guilty or not, he should be treated as innocent until proven otherwise. What we're seeing is a kick-head culture of fear and revenge headed by the media and spin doctors (you can tell that by US gun laws - watch Bowling for Columbine). We did it here years ago with Lindy Chamberlain. Bloody disgraceful. The question also needs to be asked what is in it for the alleged victims in damages? Tall poppy syndrome - we had it here in Australia. I feel sorry for MJ as all of this ridiculous immaterial stuff about his face, the dangling incident, his basic eccentrity is being held against him. I hope none of us or our families are put in the situation where we have to prove our innocence. So wrong. And just another point of view.

Posted by: Pauline on November 20, 2003 5:18 PM

Oh, and I forgot to mention, as equally ridiculous as his eccentricity are the comments from the other camp saying he is wonderful. All of this is immaterial. Someone is innocent until proven otherwise but quite frankly I don't have a great deal of faith in the trial process anyway if the agenda is to "lynch" him.

Posted by: pauline on November 20, 2003 7:01 PM

i agree wuth all the MJ fans. MJ is innocent, for a long time people have wanted michael jackson to fry for a crime like this so they watch a man who has done so well go down in history as a evil man.
If michael jackson really was a pedophile then why hasent he harmed his own children?
I also dont understand why he would leave a gap of 10 years to rape another child when he is always around children, wouldnt a pedophile rape any child with any given opportunity?
Really people when you look at the facts of this case you realise it really doesnt make any sense?

Posted by: jennifer on November 21, 2003 10:45 AM

I am so sorry but i saw this mtv interview about the molesting a twelve year old boy while the boy was sleeping in his bed.....i think there is something wrong there. what is he thinking?i like michael jackson but he really does not need to be inviting little children into his bed when he is 44 years of age.why do the parents even let their child sleep with mj?any comments that someone has back to me then say tb and i will get back with the comments . by for now

Hi i'm Cerys i'm 10 years old i love Michael Jackson so much but i don't just love his singing and dancing i love him for who he is and i know that he would never hurt anyone or anything especilly children! I think that before people judge him they should try hard to love him look within their hearts then ask and i think that the press should just leave him alone and the people should stop spreading roumers because none of them are true! Michael Jackson just wants to heal the world and stop the wars because he is a kind,loving,cairing man and i love him!!! I LOVE YOU MICHAEL JACKSON AND NOTHING WILL EVER CHANGE THAT!!!!

Posted by: Cerys on November 22, 2003 5:47 AM

Ok, let's say this is your neighbor, and you find he likes to sleep with little boys or children. He tells you its innocent, blah blah blah, the same that MJ told us all.
Do you beleive the neighbor man? Be Honest. NO
Just because MJ has money and can say what he has said about sleeping w/ children as innocent as it is made out be, doesn't make it right!! Period.
People can mislead us, lie to us and if it happens to be a star, well that's ok with you?
Star's can be just as evil as your neighbor, you'd never known it, cuz they have this image thing. The media is an extension of everyone's curiosity , however grim, we want to know about it. When it turns out like this, we don't want to beleive it! The world and the people in it are Real! What we often percieve about it, is not.

Everybody is human, even big stars! We all know that some humans, can be serial killers, Rapists and Child Molester's. Star's are subject to the same mental illness as the rest of the human's on this planet!

Posted by: Get Real on November 24, 2003 1:11 PM

After this last child molestation, you guys are really still going to defend this man? Of course the media is jumping on micheal jackson, he's molested a child and people want to know about it. The media only has one job, to report news. Jackson is a twisted man who needs serious mental therapy. Maybe he has good music, and he can dance, but its doesnt hold up in court. If you like his music, GREAT, but don't defend a child molester.....it just makes you seem like you guys condone sex with children.

Posted by: SKiD on November 27, 2003 4:56 PM

OMG! i love michael jackson sooooooo much and like the 11 yr old rachel, i would love to go hang out with michael jackson and do all that kool stuff in neverland! i have loved mj from day 1! If michael jackson is ever on this web site and reads my letter, please e-mail me at lildude555555@hotmail.com! He is so sweet and those stupid reporters can do anything to make it look like he is guilty. The funny thing is that all the people wo have never met him are all like "O ya offcourse he did it" but all the people who do know him say that they would trust michael with their children any day! he lookes like the funnest, coolest guy ever and i am one of his biggest fans! i have all his cds and there awsome! I dont know how you do it mj! I love you sooooooooo much! and i want to meet u so bad! you have no idea! MJ is the poo!
Lots and lots and lots of love!

Posted by: Lisa Cameron on November 29, 2003 10:53 AM

I love Michael Jackson so much! I have been his fan since i have been able read his lyrics. I think that he is totally inocent. Michael would nevr do anything like that. The reporters will do anything just to get promoted or to have a good story that is worthwhile to listen to. A person that rich and with a few kids of his own wouldn't do what everyone said he did to another kid. He knows what could happen to his career if he is found guilt and if that happens people like myself and other fans will be very upset that their favorite artist will be singing and writing his songs from prison. If i ever get the chance to meat MJ i would take it and i wouldn't mind stayin at Never Never Land. MJ was just doing a favour for that poor boy and no one can respect that. He is a very kind and sweet person and totally innocent. The facts are all there. So, Micheal if you ever visit this web site give me a shout at me_socool89@hotmail.com because i know your innocent and i know that you are very genurous, kind, fun and talented. your the best!
Love

paedofilia is a progressive disorder meaning that the person is never satisfied- they just keep on abusing. And by this i dont mean 2 or 3- paedofiles have an average of around 240 victims throughout their lifetime. and when Michael Jackson was being investigated back in 1993 the police called almost 30 children from Michael's personal phonebook and asked them if he had done anything to them and the answer was NO. They even intimidated the kids by saying shit like weve got naked photos of you ect-and the answer was still no.
so dont judge Michael just because he has been accused of committing a discusting crime because people lie! and this is especially the case when there is a chance of gaining millions of dollars.

micheal jackson needs HELP!!!, i am a mental therapist and i work with inmates who have been incarcerated for pedophilia.i have read the affidavid signed by the young man(boy) who first brought allegations against mr. jackson. if you read this document,you will find a progressive method described by the boy,starting with a probing scenerio, petting, kissing, touching, to determine the amount resistance a child might have to unatural affectionate advances. the statement made by this child clearly outlines a progressive scenerio leading up to full sexual arousal and finally the sex act itself. this document can be accessed on the internet, read it for your self and see if you arrived at the conclussion i did. steven spadden, phy.phd

i just became a michael jackson fan. and as a fan, it herts to see some one you care about go down for no intire reason. I hate the press cause they put un true stuff. And his name is in the news or in the pappers every day.Michael is a loving man and who loves children so much that he will spend years in jail for children claming that he is sexual harasing them . I wish they did enter view me i'd get them strate about mj.i would act like dat if i had no childhood. All he is trying to do is make up for old times.And the press have to understand that when a child has no childhood always on the rode and getting beat if moves not done correctly.And if they cant understand dat then they can shuve that paper up there ***.

I heard MJ's face is irreplacable. They say he had to much of the older style of plastic surgery where parts were actually cut away from his face.

He says he's satisfied with his appearance, but I know he must hate to look in the mirror. I can't imagine what he's feeling inside all the time.

THE PARTY


What's so strange about a strange party? Things are supposed to get strange at a party. That's what a party is supposed to be a part-ing of the normal. Anything other is merely a social gathering. However, there are sometimes those parties are so strange; they are otherworldly.


I stopped in to see my friend and former boss *Daniel. I had not talked to him in more than a year. Fortunately for him, I had arrived just when he was having some transportation issues. He had secured a free lance gig setting up the sound, taking pic


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-tures and shooting video of a party. The party was quite a distance away and he professed that he was on the verge of declining before I had arrived. He enticed me to drive him to the party and, since I had not been out in awhile I consented to drive my vehicle.


We reunited later in the day, picked-up one of Daniel's other acquaintances and off we were. We talked of many things while in the car, none which concerned the upcoming party. It was if instinctively we knew that the subject was to be experienced and not discussed beforehand. The drive was close to two hours. It is magnificent to note how drastic California's climate in terrain can change in such a comparatively short amount of time and distance. I believe the area we had arrived in would have been considered the high desert.


The spring like weather of our departure point had now changed to the omnipresent blaze of summer. The heat, although intense, had a refreshing quality about


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ít.

It was hot, dry and breezy as if someone had left the door of a moon size Maytag dryer, open, while it was still running. To feel one's self totally encapsulated by external heat has quite a surreal feel about it but, at this point, surrealness had only poked its head out momentarily to say boo!

How are you?


Southern California is not an all night town like a Chicago or a New York. When we get down to partying we start early and end early. Parties as well as other social activities usually begin around six or seven in the evening. Since Daniel had to set up some equipment we had arrived even earlier, around five. After venturing through some winding

hillish roads we finally arrived at the intended location. The neighborhood appeared to be typical of a working man's ( and woman's) blue collar encampment. The block was situated on a cul de sac which set back even further on an incline than the main road. This fact gave the block an even more an appearance of


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

se-parti-ation. Although not truly isolated, any surrounding blocks were staged at respectable distances.There were eight or so houses on each side of the street. The houses themselves, were old, with nothing spectacular to look at and bearing no signs of gentrification facelifts. My first assumption was that this was going to be some sort of block party since uniformed security guards were busy blocking off the entire entrance to the block with ceremonial red velvet rope. There was even valet parking and some higher ups on the security hierarchy dressed in the standard blue blazer, grew slacks and touting walkie-talkies.

How impressive, I thought, for a block party. Funny none of the blocks residents were visible to witness the hubbub, neither were their


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

cars. I guess valet parking or security had really taken care of them?


The only visible person out there on the block other than ourselves and the hired help was

a female, draped in a one piece, tightly fitted, black jump suit. She was sitting at the entrance at the house Daniel had directed us towards. The heat waves emanating from the streets made her appear wavy and out of focus as I approached the house, still her wild and bountiful mane of reddish curls encouraged me to increase my pace so that I might have a prized peek. However the closer I advanced the more out of focus she became. It is a scientific fact them when something is unpleasing to the eyes, the pupils contract as if desiring to diminish the shock of the viewed image. I failed to note if she acknowledged any member of out trio for the simple fact that she scared me and I could not look at her straight away. Relying on quick nervous glances and peripheral vision I recall the following description. She had the sloping forehead developing into the Neanderthal brow such as the vampires on Buffy morph into once they have convert into their desired forms. She had no eyebrows of note which was interesting considering the abundant mass of head hair, ala Whoopi Goldberg. Could this have been some sort of fashion statement? I have seen news clips that some people are so into the Gothic music scene they will have physical alterations done their person in order to become more ghoulish in appearance.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

if this was the case, she susceeded. Only in LA, I guess.


I was not going to let my imagination run wild. OK I had a party to attend. Once inside, my road trip companion and I kind found our way into the atrium section of the house; which sort of extended into a larger backyard. This party was definitely not being catered by professional hosting service or even by someone with a flair for party throwing. I have seen more festive like accolades at birthday parties for kids at Chucky Cheese. All the trappings of celebration seemed cheap and poorly thrown together. Hey Guys! maybe you shouldn't have spent so much on security. Come to think of it, why security anyway. Who would want to crash a party like such as this? These were some of the thoughts that I entertained myself with as I sat there surveying the lack of ambience, holding a cup of 99 cents store quality cola in a plastic Dixie cup. Guest had begun to arrive. I did imagine that demonic she devil who guarded the entrance had thoroughly inform-


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ed the visitors who was not among them, us. Mommy, I feel a sacrifice coming on.


As the guest begin to interact with each other I ascertained that this was a surprise birthday party for the owner of the house, a man named *Marion. The first few guest did not set off any alarms other than one couple who had what must have been their grandchild in tow. The unfettered Damien looking youth was quite annoying and no one attempted to discipline the precocious youth. This erratically dancing elf-like figure had a set of what might be unfortunately marketed as some sort of party favor. The instrument, a set of plastic horns or, to be more precise, pipes, produced god awful sound. The vibrations which emanated from the instrument were reminiscent of miniature, high pitched, untuned, fog horn. This sound, enter twined with the orchestrated yet eerie harmonies coming forth from the River dance video which played in the background, was enough to drive anyone batty. Still I refused to give in, heck I have seen weirder, so bring it on. This resolve of mine seemed to have been lost on my fellow traveling companion. Daniel had so far spent most of his time in the house helping set up things. Although I keep quiet and remained cool and unnerved by everything I was witnessing, my road trip companion was just a wee bit freaking out. He gave sound to everything I was thinking but refused to voice. He had a physical appearance to Ben Stiller and had inherited his nervous mannerism to boot.


Man, something is weird about this party


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


What's wrong with that boy. Whu doesn't some tell him to stop blowing that f_ _ _ _ _ _ annoying horn?


Who the Hell in Marion? They talk about this f_ _ _ _ _ _ _ Marion like he's some sort of God.


What's was up with that chick on the steps etc. etc. etc.


Ben seemed to be trying so hard to get me to admit that something was amiss that my resolve became even greater to say nothing and act as if I have seen it all before.


The guest list was a multicultural delight but still a melting pot of the weird. The guest seemed unconnected, very little of old friend meeting old friend. They seemed to have nothing in common except for the admiration and/or love or devotion to the not yet arrived guest of honor, Marion.


They greeted each other with cult like familiarity with Marion being the subject of every


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

other sentence. Now Marion was a part time talent agent which I deduced might explain the eccentric assortment of guest.


Once again, why security and where the Hell was the rest of the neighborhood?


The Guest

(some of the more notable in attendance)


The custodians of the little Pan, blowing his devilish horns and doing that terrible annoying goat boy dance were Middle Eastern and seem to speak in their own dialect except when bestowing the praises of Marion.


A former movie personality, an American Indian, looking just fabulous in his silver pony tails and western wear. He had co-stared in numerous cowboy productions of the 30's, 40's and 50's. Now in what look like his 90's, he still favored the glory days as indicated by the scrap book of glosses and movie stills, he bought along.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


There was a child prodigy, not part of the band, who entertained the guest with surprisingly heavy drug themed rifts on the electric guitar such as numbers by the Doors and songs such as Jimi Hendrix's Purple Haze.


Two retirees, a lesbian couple with a New Mexico, artsy, Santa Fe butcheness about them.

One had bought a pair of authentic cow bones, specially for the occasion, which she feverishly clanged together as percussion instruments. That gave me new meaning to hearing the term playing dem bones.


There was a trio of kids who moved as one unit. They walked so close together, intertwined and in unison it was amazing that they didn't fall over one another. The did not interact with any of the other kids, nor adults at that party so, not only did they moved in physical harmony as if one unit, I guess they were self contained. This megaunit of Bambi like flesh was/were probably in their preteens, obviously related, so cute to the point where their long dark curly locks and doe like eyelashes betrayed gender, as much as I


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

looked at them I could not ascertain if they were boys or girls. They had a Jackson like, of the famous Jackson family, quality about them and there was something inside of the house that gave credence to this assumption


The House


I had no idea what was going on in the house and I planned to hold it as long as possible to avoid going inside hence no beer for me. As if to note our hesitancy to venture indoors, Daniel came out and requested that Ben and I give him a hand. The interior of the modest working class home was horrendous, an eye sore, without any style, arrangement or sense of decor. Many items would have found better lodgings in a museum or a Medieval castle or a magic show. There were coat of arms mantles hanging on the walls next to hotel lobby styled painting. A full sized knight in armor set clustered


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

in between a television set and piece furniture so blah and non descript that I don't know what to call it. Pinnacled, high backed, wooden chairs with funeral home, maroon colored padding adorned the living? room. Throughout the house framed autographed pictures of Michael Jackson, pre-bizzaro incarnation, abounded. All the photos were addressed to Marion, thanking him for this and for that.


The sun was beginning to set and some guest were arriving in Limousines. Limos to such a tacky affair? Marion had yet to arrive. Then it occurred to me, Could Marion be an alias, a pseudo identity for Michael Jackson? It had to be, I thought. At least this line of thinking offered me a sigh of relief which was then replaced by joyous exhilaration of the spectacle to due to arrive. This new assumption was far better than the previous, I thanked God all the Rosemary's baby scenario was no more. Somewhere in the distance I heard a helicopter


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

approaching at South Central, LA altitude, That's gotta be him, I mused and returned to the backyard.

Some of the arriving guest were now more fashionable, still pretty eclectic but arriving in serious out on the town duds. I take it these were some of the folks exiting from the limos. The way less than out on the town atmosphere did not seem to bother them, maybe I was just being paranoid and a snob. Much like the earlier arrivals, the fashionable new arrivals seemed only concerned about was the expectant arrival of Michael, oops, I mean Marion.

The Arrival


From my position in the backyard, I heard a commotion brewing. It must be him. A sad birthday cake, the kind one could probably purchase at Price Club if Price Club did birthday cakes was brought to the outdoor dining table. The commotion continued a few minutes on the inside as I held my breath with anticipation. The entourage of well wishers parted and out on to the patio stepped Marion.


Marion was not Michael Jackson. Not only


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

šthat, Marion appeared to be the most normal looking person at the party, present company included. He humbly, thanked the well wishers, casting his infectious and child like smile this way then, that way. In his mid forties, displaying all the charisma of a content civil servant, Marion entreated the band to play. The rest of the night dwindled forth uneventful. No baby was brought out for sacrifice. Marion did not change into a puff of smoke while doing the moon walk,. I still thought the band, which included the woman-beast guardian of the steps, played some damn scary and demonic lyrics but such I guess is the nature of speed metal punk gothic funk or what ever type of band they were. There were still nagging questions about the nature of the party, the weird assortment of guest, the security, the absence of an entire neighborhood; I still could not answer but, juxtaposed against the normalcy of Marion my imagination remained stuck in neutral.


The evening was drawing to a close for me. I apologized to Daniel but asked if he could possible get a ride home with one of the other guest; many he seemed to have some sort of affiliation with. He was disappointed that I was not going to stay to the end but left matters as they were. When Ben heard I was leaving he was ready to also bail. Ben was still being freaked by the whole scene. I guest the normalcy of Marion did not persuade him else wise. I surveyed the scene one more time taking in a detail account of the guest of honor. No he was not Michael, nor the Devil. But He very well could have been Michael. He had all the physical attributes of what Michael may have looked like if he had never lived the life of a super star, if he had never undergone all the plastic surgeries, if he had never had the skin bleached or as he puts it contracted the rare skin disorder. If Michael had aged and assumed the features of a normal middle age man


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

rather than remain that eternal adolescent humoncolus being. Although now beginning to bald, Marion had the same slender build,height, color and natural facial features yes even the original full nose, that a mature Michael Jackson would have probably have had. Perhaps a younger Michael sold his identity to the Devil in exchange for what ever? Now my imagination was back on track but too! far fetched to give it any real consideration or creditability.


Body Language


There are some things acquired early in life that tend to stay with up no matter how many transformations we go through. Weeks after the party, I would sometimes muse about my concluding, yet baseless, fantasy scenario about the party and the Michael Jackson connection. However just thinking about the humble and super normal Marion doused the flames of my imagination. Marion was such a likable character. I really enjoyed his sincere way of both waving to and thanking his well wishers. Unlike the smirky smile and the little cutesy fake kiss of the hands to lips followed by the half hearted and labored extension of the arm to wave to well wishers and fans that Michael Jackson is noted for; Marion exhibits a beaming, broad smile followed by a wave which invokes his entire body. Slightly bent at the waist, Marion would raise his entire arm, starting from the opposite side of the body and with the enthusiastic follow through bring the arm and hand way above the head into almost an open handed, forward facing salute. It really made you feel appreciated. No wonder he had such devoted well wishers.


Many months later and on several occasion, I happen to see televised footage of the Jackson Five doing the early years. In dispersed between all the clips one could see a jubilant and beaming Michael Jackson smile while giving thanks to his fans, slightly bent at the waist, raising his entire arm, starting from the opposite side of the body and with the enthusiastic follow through he would bring his arm and hand way above the head into almost an open handed, forward facing salute. It really made you feel appreciated. No wonder he had such devoted fans.


The videos are out there.

People are so ignorant. You are right, what kid would want to stay alone in a guest room when you could hang out with MJ in a huge bedroom with video games and movies and all the junk food you could eat. MJ was in a 2 bedroom house when he was little so sleeping with others close by was normal. I just read that brad pitt sleeps with all of his kids at once. what is the difference? Mj was a loving person that wanted to give the kids attention that he didn't get as a child and make their lives better. he gave speeches at universities about how parents today donot give kids enough attention because they are working or on he internet or watching tv. these kids begged to sleep in his room. that doesn't sound like bad things are happening. He had all the things kids love so why shouldn't he share with the less fortunate? Love MJ 4ever
