I'm a book cover designer and art director based in New York and New Mexico. I've been blogging about home renovation, interiors, graphic design, DIY, food, cosmetics, dogs, art, music, books, and life in general since 1998. I could really use a cup of coffee right now.
sigh, i miss him.
Aw, Happy Birthday, MJ!
So wait, what’s the deal with the Brooklyn Loves MJ concert that was supposed to happen on Saturday? (Stupid Irene! Did you sustain any flooding/damage?)
Transit was totally shut down on Saturday, so the BKMJ party was ultimately postponed. I hope it can be rescheduled soon!
happy birthday michael! love your hair and glasses interpretation! 🙂
Thoroughly enjoyed the clip of him at Studio 54. His soulfulness shines through. Thanks for posting it.
Happy Birthday MJ. I Love you
Love this…happy birthday MJ!!
Love these photos of MJ. He was so beautiful when he was younger. So sad that his life took the turn it did.
MJ happy birthday..you are always alive in hearth of your fans..
LOVE this and that MJ graphic!
love the imagery, especially with the sunglasses…
but the guy, whatever his own tragic story, did so much that was predatory, and it’s so hard to appreciate the music, or these great images, without that context being acknowledged somehow.
trying to keep it hate-free and drama-free, but running across this post in this inspiring blog is jarring, thanks for listening.
Sorry, but I’ll have to totally and emphatically disagree with you there. There is NO part of me that believes on any level that any “predatory” behavior (assuming you’re talking about the accusations of molestation) ever occurred. For the record, I am extremely well-versed in the factual, documented legal histories of both cases.
I’ve already addressed this subject both in posts and in comments over the years and I don’t wish to delve into it again here and now, but here are several previous posts for reference:
I’m assuming you’re new to my blog—Michael Jackson (the man & the music) is a frequent subject, and a huge part of my life. He is a massive inspiration to me creatively, morally, spiritually and ethically. If you find his presence jarring, then you probably want to call it quits now.
Sometimes, I come back here just to read the response above. Huge MJ fan since I was seven. Pretty much wore my MJ tee everywhere I went. I love that you stick by him. And I miss him.
Me too, Chrissy. x
