Michael Jackson's Finest Hour

Michael Jackson was a genius of motion. Watch this video the whole way through. (The astounding section begins at 5:26 - absolutely gravity-defying). It is transcendent. He was a sick man, but one must acknowledge his amazing gift.

The "man" really was an artist.

I think one way to express it is to say, for most people, music brings forth dance, but for Michael Jackson, dance brought forth music.

He began practicing pedophilia long before he became a Muslim.

All I'm saying is that he will be remembered as a great artist as well as a pedophile.

Oscar Wilde, Thomas Mann, Paul Bowles, Alan Ginsburg, Leonardo Da Vinci, Arthur C. Clarke, David Lee Roth, Pete Townsend, all pedophiles, as far as I know.

If I were more knowledgeable, I could probably make that list 25 times greater.

Immorality is part and parcel of artistry, sad to say.

Even most of the people you like as artists are fucking wrecks.

Pedophilia is a terrible crime and it hurts a lot of people.

But, you know what? Adultery and substance abuse hurt a lot of people too.

I'm not saying they are as bad. I'm only trying to point out how immorality seems to go hand in hand with artistry.

Sorry, but to me, rape, incest and pedohilia are among the worst crimes imaginable. Worse than murder in most cases. Because it is betrayel.

I did read Culturist John's piece and did get it although I will say to the casual reader (even non-casual like Damien and Jau Jau) it is at best ambiguous. RIP Micael?

Rest in Hell, Michael.

Personally, I don't think we, nor anyone else, should have spent any ink on him this way.

To my mind, what he did passes far beyond simple immorality. It was betrayel. And betrayel of the most innocent among us.

does anybody here know the talmud, the torah, the old testament to counter argument what this islamofascist is saying over here?

I took it Anon if they will post it.

I liked the music at one time, but I can't get past his pedophilia.

I always thought this was his best dance video too, though "Beat It" and "Thriller" got more attention. That is the entertainer I will remember. For the rest, having spent many years helping to expose vicious predatory pedophile cult leaders, I'm repelled by the caricature who wound up surrounded by Nation of Islam goons in bow ties. We will certainly learn a lot more of the sordid details now that he is gone. Unfortunately, money, blackmail, protection and threats keep some pedophiles insulated from exposure until after their deaths.

Yes, I expect that the whole shithouse of the Jackson family kingdom is going to come down now.

The whole family knew what was going on. It started with the Dad, and the whole family knew, from long ago, what Michael was up to.

LaToya used to talk about it openly on the Howard Stern Show.

Pedophilia is rampant in the entertainment industry. I have heard so many stories from people, it is as if everyone knows and no one will talk.

Note the list of pedophiles I posted above. There's one name on there you don't hear anywhere else. As far as I know, everyone around the man knows, but it is never talked about.

Like you said, the stories will start to come out now. And, I do hope they get the whole family who enabled this through their silence.

I was surprised to see that name there.

I only know through the friend of a friend. An old girlfriend whose sister was intimately involved in the band from the beginning.

The info passed on to me could be not true.

But, I doubt that.
