This is so awesome! This video combines some of my most favorite things seamlessly, my very favorite background music from Sonic the Hedgehog which happens to be from my favorite level ever (the ice level of Sonic 3) with one of my very favorite Michael Jackson songs and videos, Smooth Criminal. If you appreciate either of these things, watch it!

Woo!

I just found the most awesome thing ever hiding on my computer!

We Are Here to Change the World

THIS IS THE SONG FROM CAPTAIN EO!!! Download it!

It's the one he sings to the evil queen, if you don't remember (not the one at the end, that's Another Part of Me, which can be found on the Bad album). All this time I've been trying to find a Captain EO soundtrack in order to get this one song, and it turns out it was on the Ultimate Collection CD #2 all along! ^o^

Here's a crappy YouTube video of the scene:

I can't believe it's been a year since Michael Jackson died. It still feels like yesterday.

I wonder what will happen to that idiot doctor who was basically putting him under surgical anesthesia every night! What a goddamn retard, how could he think that was okay?? He MUST have known that was a bad idea and should have used better judgment and acted like a doctor and done what was right for the patient, no matter what the very rich and famous patient may have been asking for. I hope he loses his medical license at the very least. He has to live with the guilt that he killed a legend, the greatest entertainer of all time.

I've been contemplating getting an MJ tattoo for a long time now. I've had such an intensely strong attachment to him from the time I was born, Thriller being my first favorite song even as a baby, and there's no question his music has had the most significant impact on me of any artist. I want the picture to be something similar to this icon of him in the fedora from Smooth Criminal. I'll probably have the words "Michael Jackson, forever and always" and "...just another part of me..." surround it. The trouble I'm having is finding the exact right photo to use and deciding where I want it.

Well, I've got plenty of time, I'm not in any hurry to decide; he's always in my heart anyway. I love you and miss you, Michael! ♥ ♥ ♥

I just got back from seeing Michael Jackson's This Is It. It was so wonderful and so heartbreaking at the same time, knowing that this was the last of his gift to us, that he would never get to perform that series of concerts he worked so hard on. I did walk away from the theater in tears. I just love him SO. MUCH.

The man was clearly a genius, but so much so that he seemed to exist on a different plane from the rest of us mundane human beings. Not only was he unbelievably talented and the most incredibe performer ever, he was so good and so caring and so loving to everyone and everything; he just wanted this world to be a better place.

Obviously the lowest common denominator, as usual, feared what was different from them and what they couldn't understand and tried to drag him down into the dirt with them at every opportunity. It just makes me furious the way so many idiots attempted to sully such an amazingly good-natured and kind-hearted person. I'm not religious, but if there was something approximating the entity of an angel in this world, it would have been Michael Jackson. Humanity at large is a bunch of lowlife cretins, and the only positive thing about his passing on is that he's not around to be their punching bag any longer. Still, that moron of a doctor has a lot to answer for for so carelessly obliterating the life of the greatest entertainer the world has ever known.

So rest in peace Michael, sadly we hardly knew ye. I, for one, will always cherish the gift of your presence on this earth and feel so lucky that it took place during my lifetime. I'll forever hold dear both you and the music you so graciously bestowed upon this undeserving world. Thank you, Michael.

*watching the Michael Jackson memorial service*

Still can't quite believe he's really gone...and I was right there where this is being held just two days ago. I wish I could have gotten a ticket and stayed for it. ;_; So sad and touching...I'll always love you, Michael! ♥ ♥ ♥

I'm so incredibly sad to hear that Michael Jackson passed away today. Thus far I've heard it was a heart attack, though that has yet to be verified. My personal feeling is that he finally succumbed to the insane amount of stress and vilification he'd been (imo unfairly) bombarded with for years. I don't know how anyone could have stood up to the kind of world-wide scrutiny he'd been under nearly his entire life.

I am, always have been, and always will be, a die-hard Michael Jackson fan. My very first favorite song was Thriller, off of the same-titled album that came out the year after I was born. My parents tell me I listened to and adored that song ever since I was a baby. I got all of his albums over the years, watched all his videos, and listened to all his music. It's such a shame I'll never be able to see him perform live or be able look forward to more wonderful music from him. I think a big part of the reason Savage Garden became my favorite band was due to the heavy influence of Michael Jackson on Darren Hayes; I felt and heard a lot of similarities in his music.

However odd he might have been in his personal life, there's no denying he is probably the most amazing singer/songwriter/dancer/all-around entertainer to ever live, and far and away lived up to his well-deserved title of King of Pop. My personal belief is that he was a sensitive soul who had a harsh childhood, or rather lack of one, and hence spent his fortune and adult years trying to relive and provide other children with what he missed out on. Yet because he was a single non-parent "weird" adult, he was unfairly demonized for it. I'm certain he simply truly loved children (and thought of himself as one; I'm not saying he didn't probably have some psychological issues that could have been worked on) and was a good person who wanted to share what he had with children in ways that some adults may have deemed abnormal. But fuck, if I was a kid (hell, even as an adult!) I *totally* would have given anything to spend time at his Neverland Ranch with all the animals and rides and fun stuff! I never once believed any of the molestation allegations, and I still don't; I think he just saw himself as a child in a lot of ways, and that's why he wanted to be with them. And you know what, even if all those awful things people said about him turned out to be true (which I most vehemently believe they are NOT)? I don't give a fuck. Michael Jackson is and forever will be a musical genius and legend who has bestowed mankind with a lifetime of incredible entertainment that will always be a part of our history and heritage. No matter how hard some people tried to taint him, nothing can take that away from us.

Long live the King of Pop. No one can ever come close to holding a candle to you. You will be forever in our hearts and sorely missed, always.
