THREAD 1/25

About the recent #MichaelJackson write up featured in the @Telegraph, courtesy of @MrGuyKelly, who evidently falls short of journalistic integrity by believing that facts apparently are irrelevant when it comes to telling the truth.
A poster boy for the reason why so many are turning their back on mainstream media to access factual content elsewhere.
Here, we will break down some of the falsehoods he presented behind a paywall & give you the public, the accurate information for free. Ready?
GK: the MJ musical stops "curiously short" of mentioning the allegations against MJ.

FACT: The musical itself is based around the creation of the #DangerousTour & is not an academic study of MJ's entire life.

This evening, @rickygervais took to the #PleasanceTheatre in London to test new material for his upcoming tour ‘Armageddon’ & told one of the most lamest jokes of his career to date. Yes you guessed it, a boring #MichaelJackson joke & here is the gist of it below -
#RickyGervais starts talking about “peadaphiles back in my day” & references how they used to have bucked teeth with certain appearances blah blah blah. He talked about how they would offer sweets to kids blah blah. He then says that nowadays peadaphiles could look like anyone.
He cites how attractive Michael Jackson was & that he had been accused of such a thing. He does the Moonwalk (it’s worth noting @rickygervais claims to be an MJ fan & paid homage to him on his cover art for his previous ‘Animals’ TV stand up) & other signature MJ movements.

#NP Prince — The Beautiful Ones
“Baby, baby, baby
Can't you stay with me tonight?
Oh baby, baby, baby
Don't my kisses please you right?”

That One Time #Prince Attempted To Run #MichaelJackson Over With His Car...

(BET) — “The rivalry between Prince and Michael Jackson has long been a poignant aspect of their legacies even after their deaths.”

As legend would have it, and the footage from that night would prove, the superstar face-off was triumphant for Michael Jackson and a rare humiliation for Prince.

But, what most aren't familiar with is what occurred after the fanfare.

Hey #MJFAM, I just want to say that I had the absolute privilege of getting to see the very first full performance of the #MJtheMusical in NYC on Sat Dec 4th for the scheduled dress rehearsal before opening for previews on Mon Dec 6th. I know so many of you are beyond excited…
…to learn about every single detail of the play & whilst I would love nothing more than to share that with you, I just feel that it wouldn’t be right & I do not want to spoil the overall magic for those not wanting to know or for the artists & crew who have worked so hard…
…to keep it all a big secret. Initially, when I learnt this whole event was going to be a thing, I thought to myself, how on earth are the writers & creators going to encapsulate everything that #MichaelJackson was about to an world audience already so saturated by the…

Anton Furst was a cinematic visionary.

Thirty years ago today, the production designer tragically took his own life at the age of 47.

He’s one of my greatest influences, so I thought I’d write a brief history about him alongside some photos, drawings, and interview excerpts. Image
His production design for Tim Burton's Gotham City made an early and indelible impact on me.

"It was as if hell had erupted through the pavements and kept growing."
– Anton Furst Image
As a 10-year-old sitting in a suburban cinema, #Batman89 was my first introduction to the dark beauty of gothic, futurist, and brutalist architecture. Gotham was scarier than the Joker, more mysterious than Bruce Wayne, and more beguiling than Vicki Vale. I wanted to live there. Image

Tal día como hoy ( en el año 2003 ) y tras el allanamiento de la policía gracias a la orden solicitada por el fiscal Thomas W. Sneddon, Michael Jackson hizo la siguiente declaración:
" He visto abogados que no me representan y portavoces que no me conocen hablando por mí. Estos personajes siempre parecen surgir con horribles acusaciones al igual que otro proyecto, un álbum, un video que se está lanzando ".
Tom Sneddon " casualmente " elige este día específico para atacar a Neverland con una orden de allanamiento acompañada de 7 miembros del Sherriff del condado de Santa Bárbara.

Michael Jackson was a true humanitarian. He was cited in the 2000 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records for the world record for most institutions supported by an artist. But Michael did not support the institutions to be quoted in a book, he did so Image

from the heart. What was discovered, over time, is that the number of institutions he supported was much greater than the 39 social works mentioned in the Guinness Book. According to several testimonials already published on this blog, Michael helped many Image

people, privately and anonymously, for the simple joy of being able to help his fellow men. For your love for humanity. There are 39 institutions mentioned in the Guinness Book. The others continue with the first list, and it is quite possible that it is Image

#MichaelJackson fans who are not into #Prince - Prince is a different style altogether but if you want to dip in, I'd say these 7 tracks will appeal to MJ fans.

I'm not comparing the two - just sharing the love 💜
Gett Off (From Diamonds & Pearls: 1991)

In October, 2018 I attended the #MichaelJackson: On The Wall exhibition at the @NPGLondon Gallery with my mum.

We stood for a long time in awe of @MarkRyden's painting which we all are familiar with, soaking in the fact that this was the original #Dangerous cover painting.

#Art
My apologies for the lighting, flash photography was not allowed at the gallery. Here's the caption beside the painting, some of the text is in the next tweets with a couple of visual references & a video about the construction of the frame. 👇

1/12 👇 I've been reading the #MJEstatevIRS ruling, very interesting yet bittersweet considering the content. Not the kind of thing I normally read but I'd like to highlight what the document says about unreleased #MichaelJackson recordings...

#MJFam
Section G (Pages 46 & 47):
After Jackson’s death, Sony engaged in an extensive search for unreleased songs to evaluate for possible future release. Jackson was not working on any album when he died and had not released any album containing new material since 2001.
He was, however, known to over-record songs on his albums. He kept these unreleased recordings in his personal vaults.

Sony’s corporate spelunkers crawled through these vaults and found 7,000 to 10,000 pieces of tape. These were mostly tailings and very little pay dirt.

#MichaelJackson - Blood On The Dance Floor reached #1 in the UK chart 24 years ago today.

A retrospective 👇 #Thread with links, interviews, videos and remixes. #Music #MJFam

Producer @TeddyRiley1 was working on the track in June '90, missing a b'day party for a friend. That evening Riley learned someone was shot on the dance floor at the party. At the time, the rhythm he was working on was aggressive & menacing no words, no title, & no melody.
Jackson listened carefully to the tapes Riley brought with him and instantly loved what he heard. The tracks used different chords than he was accustomed to. The rhythms were fresh and edgy. The beats swung with velocity and hit like sledgehammers.

Money #HIStoryStreamingParty
A mid-tempo new jack swing/funk number denouncing greed & the lust for money. Another response to the blackmail he suffered in the early 90s. A simple song where Michael speaks his verses & sings the chorus...
..It's an interesting song with a simple production. The beat is catchy, even if you’re not a #MichaelJackson fan. Musically it’s a little bland but considering this is an introspective album it’s a solid representation to what was going on in his life at the time.
The first time I heard Money, in 1995 - I knew I'd heard that sound before but I couldn't remember. I thought I was going crazy every time I heard it because I always seemed to have another song in my head.

#இளையராஜா #MichaelJackson
இவர்கள் இசையின் உச்சம் தொட்டவர்கள். இவர்கள் வாங்காத விருதுகள் இல்லை. உடைத்தெறியாத சாதனைகள் இல்லை. தலைமுறைகளை தாண்டி இவர்கள் இசை தொடாத இடம் இங்கே இல்லை.
இருவரும் ஒடுக்கப்பட்ட ஒரு சமூகத்திலிருந்து அத்தனை தடைகளையும் தாண்டி சாதித்தவர்கள்
ஒடுக்கப்பட்ட ஒருவன் எழுந்து உச்சங்கள் ஆயிரம் தொட்டாலும் ஏதோ ஒரு காரணத்தை வைத்து அவர்கள் சாதனையை மட்டம் தட்ட எப்பவுமே ஒரு கூட்டம் காத்துகிட்டே இருக்கும். இளையராஜாவ எப்படி அவர் கடவுள் நம்பிக்கை வச்சு குறை சொல்றாங்களோ அதே மாதிரி MJ தோல் வெள்ளை ஆக்கினாரு, skin bleaching பண்ணாருன்னு
குறை சொன்னாங்க. உண்மையிலயே அவருக்கு vitiligoன்ற பிரச்சினையால இந்த மாதிரி ஆயிடுச்சு. ஆனா அவரு கறுப்பர் ன்னு மறைக்க இத பண்ணாருன்னனு பேசி சாகிற வரை தொல்லை கொடுத்தாங்க
