“I Just Can’t Stop Loving You” Buenos Aires 1993

Siedah Garret, one of Michael’s long-time band members had this to share about these amusing performance of I Just Can’t Stop Loving You in Buenos Aires, 1993.

During one show on our Dangerous World Tour, I decided to surprise Michael by appearing on-stage wearing a blond wig to sing our duet, “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You”. Check out Michael’s reaction!”

Happy New Year to All MJ Fam!

I know this is coming a bit late, but I would still like to wish my MJ Fam a blessed New Year with many positive things to look forward to in our Michael Jackson Community. If you haven’t done so already keep a progressive, peaceful, and positive attitude when we go about striving for justice for Michael in the media this year. For as always, I will continuously try my best to relay to you all the happenings and events which keep us celebrating and protecting Michael’s Legacy.

Much Love To You All,

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are able to enjoy your feast, while someone else does the cleaning!

Michael Jackson- Like Glove Saves Football Player

I stumbled across this interestingly light article about the power of a glove–a Michael Jackson-like glove that is! Hope you enjoy.

Sam Bradford wasn’t supposed to begin throwing passes until the end of this week. Instead, the healing power of Michael Jackson’s favorite accessory made it possible for him actually to begin airing out his arm on Wednesday.

Which is great news for the Rams, considering it was initially thought that the second-year quarterback might have suffered nerve damage in his right index finger during last Sunday’s loss to the Eagles.

You think Rams fans were relieved? How about the man in question?

“I really was worried about it,” Bradford said, via the St. Louis Post Dispatch. “I wouldn’t have come out of the game if it wasn’t serious. I couldn’t feel (the finger). I couldn’t move it that night, and so I really was concerned. But our training staff’s done a great job. It’s starting to come around.”

For that, he can thank the glove he had to wear while he rehabbed the finger. The glove that is dunked in water, wrung out, plugged into an electrical stimulation unit and worn on the hand while the recipient feels an electrical current that forces him to moon-walk across the training room floor (the glove is supposed to reduce the swelling in the hand, which is why the patient is explicitly told not to grab his crotch and scream at any point during the process). The glove that looks like the fashion statement Michael Jackson used to make.

“Everyone says I look like Michael Jackson, “Bradford said. “They send like an electrical current through it; I don’t really know what it does, though. They say it works, and obviously my hand feels better, so I trust ’em. So I guess it is working.”

It worked for Michael Jackson, for sure. Whether it will work to keep Bradford’s throwing hand healthy when St. Louis faces the Giants on Monday, that remains to be seen. But if it’s Michael Jackson-endorsed, I don’t see how wearing a white glove wouldn’t turn you into a star (if only this was the Motown 25 show from 1983 and not Monday Night Football).

But as far you actually seeing Bradford wear the glove on Sunday? Nope.

“Uh-uh,” Bradford said. “There’s no way. I’ve tried it, and it’s not pretty. It’s not for me.”

Bradford is right about one thing. The Michael Jackson glove isn’t pretty. It’s awesome, and we feel he should wear the glove, regardless of whether he’s comfortable (or whether he can grip the ball).

“Soaring Over Neverland”

A few days ago I came across a beautifully written post on Positively Michael detailing a member’s ride over Neverland via helicopter. Needless to say, the written experience this writer describes leaves you just a tad bit jealous!

Yes, I was nervous. I fly very often as part of my job, and had flown in a small 6-seat plane before, but never in a 4-seat helicopter! But now that I’ve done it, I can say I’d do it again in an instant.

Dan, our pilot, and Travis who called himself the “cargo loader” or something like that (LOL) immediately put us at ease. Honestly, I think they were expecting wailing lunatics carrying ‘He is Innocent’ placards or something, and were surprised to find that we were (well, relatively) normal. Travis prepped us by explaining how to board and how to fasten the seat belt and put on the headphones-with-microphone that we would use to talk to each other over the noise.

Then we made the walk to our transportation, on a small airstrip in the private plane area at Santa Barbara Municipal Airport. LOL, we all ducked as we got in range of the propeller blades (no doubt, as a result of watching too many TV shows that show someone hunching down low to board a copter) but it wasn’t really necessary, as the blades were wayyyyy over our heads. I got in, buckled up, put on the ‘phones, and took a deep breath.

And we took off, with the nose pointed down ever so slightly, just like you see on TV. Honestly, it was as smooth as silk, much smoother than taking off in a jet. Up we went, over the mountains west of Santa Barbara. The altitude was the same as it would be a minute before you land in a plane, but because the windows were so much bigger than those little airplane portholes, I.COULD.SEE. I remembered the movie “Out of Africa,” the portion where they are up in the little bitty plane, and the camera pans scenes of the terrain below. The view was just epic: the mountain peaks and valleys, a small lake.

And then…. Dan alerted us we were near the ranch. I think we all just held our breath. We approached from the southwest, over one more mountain, and there it was.

It looked like a sprawling green oasis in the middle of dry high desert. The first things I remember seeing were the helipad, and then several circles of metal fence, where the rides used to be (/weepy). We turned – north, I think – and circled. We did about 3 circles over the whole ranch (I think it was 3, I was too excited to count), each a bit lower. The last was low enough to get a really good view of the huge main house, the pool, the small lake, the train station, the clock garden (and the time on the clock was correct!!!), the main gate and the long winding road to the parking area, everything! We all just grinned upon seeing that the grounds were obviously well-tended. As I think another member has already said, Dan was very conscientious about keeping us at an altitude that maintained a respectful distance, wasn’t stalker-ish or in any way intrusive, yet was low enough to get a really good look.

I wasn’t prepared for the range and intensity of the emotions I felt as I looked out the window. I was awed, elated, grief-stricken-all-over-again, thinking “what if” thoughts, feeling as if I was saying goodbye for about the millionth time yet for the millionth time not able to let go. As another PosMike member has said already, I felt one step closer to truly knowing who Michael was, what motivated him, what made him happy.

On the ride back we played MJ tunes and were all weepy and smiley at the same time. Our touch-down back on the airstrip was, just like the takeoff, smooth and easy, easier than any experience landing in a plane.

If you decide to do this, here are a few more things I can tell you to help you prepare.

You’ll feel a little wobbly and weird for about 30 minutes to an hour after you land. I think it’s because of the altitude, and it’s normal. Just drink some water and you’ll be fine.

Bring a small camera with a zoom lens, if you have one. The pics will be better with a real camera than with a mobile phone camera.

There’s enough room in the helicopter for your purse or a small tote, but no more than that, so don’t bring much besides your sweet self.

Be prepared for a combination of intense and conflicting emotions as you see the ranch. Just breathe.

I can’t find any other words to describe how exhilarating this experience was, both physically and emotionally. I will never forget it.

Happy Birthday Rebbie And LaToya!

 

Best Wishes!
