R.I.P., MJ -- Rest in Peace, Michael J. Jackson, August 29 1958-June 25 2009
Probably the very last thing I thought I'd be doing in updating my web pages on Michael Jackson was adding my voice to the nation-wide -- make that worldwide shock and disbelief that Michael had very suddenly died. I always thought it would be him and Prince and Madonna, fighting it out in wheelchairs and walkers on into their 70s and 80s, celebrating their many more birthdays (they were all born in the same year, 1958) to come. Apparently, that was not to be. It was never in doubt that he had talent -- some people would say that he was what talent looked like. And without question, he was a musical and, in many ways, a social pioneer. We took for granted that he would always be here--and not just because he'd sung "I'll Be There." The world has become such a cold, noisy place--and you don't need to see a million Twitter messages to figure that out. If Michael often brought on a lot of vexing and frustration with some of his personal choices, it still never made you forget the music. And that's his real legacy (and it has been for years): Remember the Music.

     These are some of my very favorite shots of Michael Jackson. OK, true, most of these are the so-called "late 1980s look," but Michael worked it well. For a seeming constellation of reasons, Michael no longer looks like this... but I digress.

The wallpaper I'm using on this page is a self-portrait that Michael used in his 1988 autobiography, Moonwalk. It has always intrigued me, as Michael wrote the year "1998" within the drawing, and then put an arrow below it. Whatever does this mean?

Well, some of you have written me and told me what you read about the significance of the "1998." It seems that years back, a fortune teller or some sort told Michael that he needed to write the "1998" with his signature. If he didn't, he wouldn't live past that year! Michael followed this instruction for a while, but then realized that this probably wasn't true and so stopped the practice. If anyone knows any other reason, be sure to write me and tell me!




Amazon's Michael Jackson Store!
There's three different versions of the Thriller 25th Anniversary CD:

There's a remastered version with extra tracks (similar to the Special Edition version below) and a bonus DVD which has two different covers but is the same CD.


And the third is the Deluxe Casebook Edition which costs about $10 more; the deluxe version is housed in a hardbound book-style package with a 48-page color booklet of rare photos and lyrics.
