My World Is A Better Place

Michael taught us to heal the world, take a look at ourselves in the the mirror, make that change, hold each others hands, take care of our planet, stand up for injustice, and he reminded us that we are the world. Thank you Michael Joseph Jackson for being a part of our lives. As we celebrate your life and legacy, please know that you will ALWAYS be in our hearts. Thank you, MJ. Our world truly is a better place because of you. All for L.O.V.E. All for Michael

Michael, I Absolutely Love Your Smile!

Now, lets be perfectly honest here: Michael Jackson was endowed with some of the most delicious, provocative, sensual, charming, fine, sexy eye candy attributes. And he did justice to each and every one of them. Yes he did!! But there was always something  magical about his smile. It mesmerizes you and draws you into his world. From the days with the J5 and throughout his solo career, I have absolutely always loved his smile…especially when he does that lip-biting gesture or when he licks his lips. Mmmph. mmmph, mmmph! I MJ

Well, here is a composite picture I created of MJ’s smile as a young boy where he is biting on his lip while smiling, and the very same gesture in a smile during the BAD era!! Michael, I absolutely love your smile!

The Michael Jackson Tribute Portrait

I know this topic keeps resurfacing every now and then, but I think it is  important that we keep it fresh and in the minds of the fans. I am DOT #235,878. My DOT is located in the portrait somewhere on Michael’s luscious upper lip!!  Mmmmm!

It amazes me that there are over 30 million Facebook “likes” of the site, and yet the MJ portrait project only requires 1 million DOTS and we have not reached that magic number yet!! What is wrong with this picture, literally? The portrait was started some time in late 2009 and I would have expected that the portrait would surely be completed by now. It will be 2 sad years come June 25th that we lost our beloved Michael. How wonderful it would be if the Tribute Portrait could be finished by the 2nd anniversary.

Please spread the word that the portrait project still needs our help. This is part of Michael’s legacy that we, the fans, help to create and preserve and protect. Post this info on your FB page, website, or blog. Feel free to “tweet about it.” Just get the word out. Shamone, y’all. We can do this. Don’t let The Michael Jackson Tribute Portrait linger in limbo.

Got your DOT? Good! What’s your DOT #? If not, you can get your DOT right here –>

Cirque du Soleil: Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour – Las Vegas – December 2011

2/28/11 UPDATE: TICKETS.HAVE.BEEN.PURCHASED. I called TicketMaster and ordered my tickets because the seats I wanted would not come up online when I selected “Best Available” or Level 1 seating. I’m so excited. When the rep on the phone was confIrming my info and provided me with my order confirmation number, tears were streaming down my face. Bittersweet. I would much rather be going to concert to see MJ in person. But I know that Cirque du Soleil will do him much justice. Can hardly contain myself and i have 10 months ’til showtime. It will DEFINITELY be worth the wait. I love you Michael Joseph Jackson.
This week I am buying my tickets to the Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour by Cirque du Soleil in Vegas!!! I’m so excited!!! I am so there. After I get the tickets, then I will start making my travel plans. As soon as I heard about the tour, it has been on my mind every day…just like I think about Michael every day. I will post an update to my blog after I get my show confirmation. Stay tuned.

I Am Still Crying

I miss you more and love you more than you will ever know,
I am still crying for you, Michael, oh how I miss you so.
I listen to your music every night and every day,
I am still crying for you Michael, the pain won’t go away.
~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~
My hearts goes all aflutter at the mere mention of your name,
I am still crying for you, Michael, things will never be the same.
I want you back, you are my muse, I wish that you were here,
I am still crying for you, Michael, my love, my darling dear.
~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~
I think about you all the time, and I love your sexy smile,
I am still crying for you Michael, and loving you all the while.
One day we’ll meet again, my sweet, in the heavens up above,
I am still crying for you Michael, I hope you can feel my love.

Judith Hill’s Tribute Song to Michael

I have heard this tribute song before but I came across it again this morning and thought I would share it. Such a bittersweet reminder of how Michael touched our lives, and yes, we will ALWAYS be missing him. Typing this post through buckets of tears and trying to smile even though my heart is breaking.

“If you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with.” ~ Michael Jackson ~

Honoring Michael with My Art

Here is my latest creation dedicated to Michael. I created this beautiful work of art using a Paint Shop Pro tutorial. I must say that I think I did a pretty good job on this! And I make that statement with a humble heart and with the inspiration that comes from the magic of Michael. As always, anything I do related to Michael is all for L.O.V.E. Enjoy!

What’s Up with this Oprah Interview?

I have so many mixed feelings about Mama Katherine allowing Oprah and her crew to set up camp at the family’s Encino estate for an interview. After all, we know that Michael is not one of Ms. O’s favorite people. So why  is she showing all this interest in Michael again? Could it be that her ratings for her final season are in the pits and she wants to go out on a high note? Or is she having a change of heart and wants to set the record straight? I pray it is the latter. Having a change of heart is a good thing.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Where was Oprah, when Michael Jackson died? She did not speak out on his behalf.  Her silence was deafening and people certainly took note and exception to that. Remember back on February 10, 1993, when Michael allowed her to interview him? We know for a fact that for Oprah it was “the highest-rated single episode ever…when Michael Jackson made a rare appearance on the show…[and] the episode was watched by 36.5 million viewers” in the US alone, and more than 90 million worldwide. [Side note please: Help me understand why it is that since Michael's interview was her "highest-rated single episode ever," she did not see fit to include that interview in her "The Oprah Winfrey Show 20th Anniversary Collection" DVD? What's up with that Oprah? That is really a rhetorical question. Just another one of those things that make you go "hmm." SMDH. Pssh!]

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

So what’s up Ms. O? Are you looking to gather the masses for another block buster episode? Please do not use Michael’s family for the sake of ratings the way you used Michael back in 1993. Or your half-hearted, less-than-sincere episode that aired on September 16, 2009, “Remembering Michael Jackson.”

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I have to trust that Mrs. Jackson is doing what she thinks is the right thing to do to get her message out about her dear son, Michael. I know that there are some Jackson family members who do not agree with Mrs. Jackson’s decision. I know that there are MJ fans who are so against this and some who support her. But at the end of the day, this is Michael Jackson’s mother and she will have her say whether we like it or not. I know that her intentions are all for the love of Michael and for the love of Michael’s beautiful children. Mama Katherine is keenly aware of the reach and scope of Oprah’s audience base and perhaps she (Mama Katherine) is using this “opportunity” to her advantage. I’m just sayin’.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

So here’s my challenge to Oprah: Oprah, you have one again been afforded the honor to go inside of Michael’s family. Please be mindful of the delicate nature of this interview. Whichever family members you interview in addition to Mama Jackson, please show some L.O.V.E. and R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Please keep your interview comments/chatter on the positive and uplifting side of things. When editing the footage for airing, please do not twist it around and cut and paste segments to present something that is less than favorable to Michael or respectful to Mrs. Jackson. And remember, Ms. O, that in the grand scheme of things, this episode is not really about you…it is really all about Michael…it is about you using your influence and reach to help and restore his good name. You have the power to influence. Take a look at that woman in the mirror…do the right thing. This is your chance, Oprah Winfrey, to “make that change” on behalf of the life, love, and legacy of Michael Joseph Jackson.

Michael, you are the song that I sing each day
