It's all just media blitz turning him to a martyr.


What does race have to do with it? I'm not calling you a racist I was just saying calling MJ a low life piece of **** is a pretty *****ed up thing to say

Race has everything to do with it-- as I've been saying, he's been made a martyr by the media. A martyr for "peace" and for "race relations."

Ironically enough, he didn't seem to value his own race enough to stay black... Michael was nothing but a mentally disturbed person and making him out to be anything more is just delusion. It's the same reason I hate when people talk of Syd Barrett as some musical prophet. He was disturbed-- he made great music, respect him for that... but he was still only a man with a ****load of problems.

No offence Hachi, but what good did he do and who did he help.

Please don't refer to Doc's points, I'm only going to recommend checking out tax laws.

Exclamation

this whole race thing is ridiculous, who cares what color a guy is. Expecially when the guy has a discease (vilitigo and lupus). It was proven many times.

His long-time dermatologist spoke about it this week on CNN :
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpkLZxB-tvw

interesting example on a young black girl :
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSylVFHRvZE


I understand people who are sick of the media coverage, its like funeral pornography and its a real shame. But at the same time, they trashed him so much when he was alive, it will never be enough to rehabilitate him. Sick world, what do you want

I guess it doesnt change what he accomplished and its the important thing. Its just too bad it stops some people to be interesting by him and what he created, on wrong assumptions.


By the way, update on the video game :

Hold on, are you saying that because Jacko was so badly trashed in life all the coverage he gets in his death is justified?

Hopefully not, since to me this kind of behavior spells hypocrisy at its best. Yeah, I know, it's a custom that's been around in some form since the antique times. De mortuiis nihil nisi bene, but even then you could only speak of the things he did that were genuinely good, not trying to turn black into white (no pun). Leave the grey alone too.

He did alot he has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to childrens hospitals,AIDs foundations ect.

He even gave his original jacket he wore in Beat It and his trademark glove that he wore to the music awards to a terminaly ill child who was dying of cancer.


and last but not least his music made alot of people happy including myself so in my book he was a good person. Yes he was pretty strange in his later years but he was still a good person

Mine is the model that actually plays! You got the same one?
The sample song is a special remix of Rock and Roll Pt 1 by Gary Glitter with sound bites of Jeffrey Jones, Ferris Bueller's principal.

YES!
...and because I'm guessing you missed it, the sample song that plays at the touch of a button and showcases the range of the keyboard is by two other pediphiles. Gary Glitter's Rock and Roll Pt 1 with sound bites of Jeffrey Jones, Ferris Bueller's principal.

Would LOVE to see you post a couple of pictures modeling you're booty! I mean bounty, I mean swag...AARRGGG!

Just throw-up some pix...I'm sure you resemble the artist formerly knownas Michael in some way...

At least it was the original Indy pin, and not that god awful one that came out a couple of years ago.

The new one can be seen here.

Too bad he didn't have The Addams Family or Medieval Madness! Ripley's is pretty rad, though.

Mike Salisbury new interview :
http://www.mjdatabank.com/magazine/i...isbury/eng.htm

Worked on the Off The Wall design. But you may be interested to know he's the guy who created the famous Raiders logo (later used for the general Indiana Jones title and sequels) or the ILM logo with the magicien, and the new Hasbro logo.

Quote:
George Lucas is a collector of Salisbury’s work and recommended him to Francis Ford Coppola, who used Salisbury imagery creations in Apocalypse Now.

Can you site your source for the Raiders logo info? Forget it...it's on his page! Thanks for the info, the source has been a major thorn in my side for some time!

Oh my god it's terrible!

Seriously. What's the big deal? Looks like a decent pinball machine to me. And I'm sure it plays like any other.
