My Cover of Lady Antebellum’s Need You Now, Glee’s Like A Virgin and My Favourite Moffatt Songs

😑 I guess I didn’t keep to my promise to put up the cheerleading pictures and videos first! But I am getting to that, pictures are being uploaded to flickr as I type!

In my me time, I indulge in a little syok sendiri karaoke session, if you don’t already know by now. Always fearing the day where my housemates will come and knock on my door angrily and say, “OI ENOUGHLA! YOU THINK YOU SING VERY NICE ISSIT?!!!!!”

So these are the latest products:


My cover of Lady Antebellum’s Need You Now. Her voice is so husky and gorgeous and not sure if Lady Antebellum and Lady Gaga are okay with the same prefix.


My latest song obsession from Glee! Loved the cast’s version of Like A Virgin so much. Santana’s sluttiness is so refreshing. I’m always drawn to sexual innuendos, why ah?


And from about a month ago, I belted a few of my favourite Moffatt songs from my teeny bopper years!

Batch 1’s Cheerleading Journey for ADSALympics 2010

I hope I will have the energy to blog about the rest of the ADSALympics events which just wouldn’t stop.

For those who are not from my university or my course, ADSALympics is an annual sporting event held by the AIMST Dental Students’ Association. It is basically a crazy week of non stop sports, reducing us to soggy tissues at the end of it all.

On Day 1 we had the long awaited Cheerleading event followed by the Basketball game on that very same day. Swimming, Dodgeball, Ping Pong, Badminton, Futsal, Amazing Race..all within the span of one week. On Monday would be track and javelin and on Tuesday, we hope to be done with the rest of the Dodgeball matches.

I never knew one human being could do much in such a short span of time. Ask any dental student (who contributed ahem ahem ahem clears throat) and they would raise one finger with the help of the other finger, supported by raising their knees slightly for a larger force…..just to show you that they are still alive.

Body Evolution (our local massage center located at our usual dinner spots) would be filled with BDS people over the next few days. I had my full body massage there a few days ago and if any of you saw ugly red spots on my right and left arm (bilateral ugly red spots), that’s because the china masseuse talked me into getting the hot cup treatment. Don’t know what is it lah, I thought she wanted to use the cow bone on me to ‘kuat sah’ and before I knew it, my flesh was being sucked into tiny bowls. I had a very turtle moment and it hurt like a mofo bitch. That’s why it is very important to send your children to chinese schools.

SO! Here’s a summary of our cheerleading preparations over the past few weeks. All these photos were up on facebook weeks ago but privatised to only my classmates as we did not want to show any of the juniors or lecturers what we had in store for them come ADSALympics Day 1! Our hard work really paid off with all the awesome comments we have been getting. For eight days of practice, I think we did pretty good. We got second place though Maxis wanted us to be number one! We are complacent people and it was more than we could have asked for! Full coverage on the Cheerleading event will be after this post. πŸ™‚ PROMISE.

Photos are below but do watch the video of Batch 1’s entire cheerleading journey thus far. PLEASE WATCH AH. I took such a long time to put it together.

Our first ever practice was held at the jetty in our housing area, BLM. Trivia: The jetty is rumoured to be haunted after 7pm.


The happy faces of the eager participants.


Ee Chean with our squad leader, Maxis. The girls from the other batches had a good laugh when they found out that our squad captain was a guy. I tell you, he is the best squad leader EVER. So determined, so focused.


HAHAHA my favourite photo of Chwan Horng which he hates. It’s like he was fantasizing about something.


Me loving Nien who was protecting my baby. My baby MBP contributed to the group’s cheearleading lessons. Then the monster behind us is negligible. No need to care about him.


Monster scared of paparazzi.


Touristy photo with the Merbok river which runs through our housing area, runs under the bridge which we take to uni everyday, runs all the way to the sea and bypasses the foothills of Gunung Jerai. I’m like studying at a fucking resort place. Ahhhhh.. but why don’t I appreciate it and hire some boat and explore?


Plenty of photo taking during our first practice because the sun was lovely.


Monster dribbles water from his chin seductively.


Got warm up session somemore..hahaha.


Showing you how it is done wtf


Sett abit lost the plot.


One of our first few attempts at hoisting up the flyers.


Zhu Zen has a fear of heights.


Maxis just climbs on top of anybody forgetting that he and whoever who was kesian enough to be the base weighed about the same.


Just trying a few positions to see which fits.


The humble beginnings of our female star. GO LIE YUEN!


Should see the video of Poh Yee screeching and screaming when she was climbing on top of Andy.


Ee Chean’s attempt at being a flyer.


Cze-Yin’s turn.


The boy bridge. Initially, Lie Yuen and Sock Nee were supposed to run across it together. I was also supposed to be on one end of the bridge as an extra boy, since there weren’t enough boys in the team and the only girl who had the physique (body mass) of a guy was me, so fml. Nothing has changed since kindergarten, as Lie Yuen reminded me. Sad flashbacks of wearing a tuxedo and twirling my classmate who was wearing a yellow dress, dancing to the song “Happy Together” at our kindergarten concert played in my head. Not enough boys back then too.


I love boys’ backsides.


The original fan members. Only remaining members towards the end was me and Narjit. πŸ˜€


LMAO at Cze-Yin. Why is she always so funny..*wipes tears from eyes*. It’s like her world has a totally different gravity pull.


Our mad squad leader trying out the vision in his head.


One of our star flyers too!


The two lightest ones in the group with the two strongest bases.


Everybody tried to give their own ideas.


As Andy said in cantonese, “Ngo dei Batch 1 mou mat yeh geh, hai cheh tor jek” (Us Batch 1 people don’t have much one, only got damn a lot of cars.) 37 students in my class, I think we have 33 cars.


For our second cheerleading practice, Maxis found a shady area near the first guard house at uni. It was a spot that most of us did not even know existed. Another reason to give my hat off to him.


L-r: Xin Yi, Poh Yee, Pei Zhi, Angela amidst the brown leaves.


Sock Nee so cute <3


Narjit and Socknee so cute <3


That’s right Joe, cheerleading in your formal clothes.


Housemates photo!!


Ah Thong trying out some moves.


Obligatory photo with the grass.


While I’m at it..


Monster Jimmy actually gives a very nice commentary in the Batch 1’s Cheerleading Journey video! He explains how he does his now famous jump that wowed the whole school. πŸ™‚ SO PROUD OF YOU MONSTA.


For the past few years as Lie Yuen’s sister, best friend, classmate, housemate, ex college classmate, KL kaki lang… I have always had a feeling that she used to cheerlead in high school but would always get scolded from her for getting my facts wrong. Seems that I was right all along. She does have natural cheerleading talents! Climbing up to the third layer..etc.. she can do it all lah.


Both hands have to raise at the same time so that the flyer will feel more stable.


Pure look of terror on Sock Nee’s face!


Narjit giving Cze-Yin a kiss.


Xin Yi the goddess with her humble followers bowing at her feet.


Chwan Horng tried to run away from me in case I snap another photo of him to frame him.


Zhu Zen’s japanese emoticon eyes. <3


Must teach Cze-Yin to stand like a woman.


Auditioning for flyers.


Looking for cheerleading videos to inspire the group.


Looking back at the photos, we really had a lot of fun practicing as a team. πŸ™‚


It’s almost like I’m in some huge campus in a foreign country where the ground is always clean and never muddy.


I love this picture of Sock Nee and me!


This would make an awesome Maxis Broadband advertisement. We were gathering around to watch the youtube video which we replicated with a few modifications.


Can see everyone’s shock expression. This is the part where the japanese boys did that crazy high jump which Jimmy successfully pulled off.


Practicing some cheerleading steps.


An accident happened.


CSI came to investigate.


Hopefully the dead leaves can help with the decomposing process.


At our third practice, we had it at Gemilang the futsal court. Maxis was taking this so seriously, he even printed out instructions for everyone. We were so proud of Maxis for taking so much initiative that we scolded each other if any of us forgot to take the paper home. LOL.


Practicing the dance for the first time.


Dinner after that third practice was at a rather high class chinese restaurant. But shared among so many people, it was only RM10 per person.


Sock Nee and her monster. I had to  force him to open his eyes because he was spoiling all the previous photos.


Maxis and Yi Ting who is practically our classmate now.


L-r: Thong, Me, Zhu Zen and Nien.


L-r: Nien, Lie Yuen and Ee Chean.


After class, we gathered to start on the pompom making process. It was a futile session as the material used was not ideal. 😐


I did ask them to smile properly!


We felt like a china factory.


Wah, Wuan Phing and Jaya dressed for the occasion.


Long story short, most of the pompoms were done by my grandmother, mum and me as I thought it would be better that I finish the pompoms since if a few people took it back to their respective hometowns during the holidays to complete, there would not be any form of standardization. So, I took one for the team!


George Washingthong.


The science student who is also a cheerleader. It is possible.


Ba di ya…dancing in september..~


Here comes the bride..


Trying out our skinny pompoms.


Wig test passed.


Bra test passed.


Warming up again. Very fake one la.


This was our second run through with the music. It was already our second last practice. Hahaha.


Trying to get the dance moves perfect.


Ah Thong poses for a squashed like a fly photo.


After our one week holiday, we rented a badminton court somewhere in town for our final rehearsal. It was also the first time we attempted that super dangerous three layer formation where Lie Yuen falls backwards to the waiting arms of the boys.


Lie Yuen falling. Sorry my camera sucks. πŸ™


This formation was also thought of super last minute. I think the actual performance was our second or third time going through the whole routine. *bows*


Pompoms are good to go!


The banner was done creatively by Ee Chia, Nien, Chwan Horng and a few others. I loved the glittery gold paint! We have a banner that rolls down from the top of the three layer formation. You can see that in the video! πŸ™‚

My Covers on Glee’s Defying Gravity and Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance

Oh you know how it is, exams in over a week’s time (maybe less days now, I stopped counting due to fear), you stare at that program in your macbook called Garageband, feel happy you have an inbuilt mic, think that your bathroom repertoire should be immortalized to stroke your own ego….

Every girl could do with a little pick me up come exam season:) This is my way of doing it!

ALSO I AM OBSESSED WITH GLEE. First time I am crushing on a guy who is one year younger than me. Even with celebrities, I couldn’t bring myself to go gaga over someone younger or even a gay personality. It’s like totally no hope, so why go there? KURT AND ARTIE ARE JUST AWESOME. I think their real names are sexier, though so common. Sorry to all the Kevins and Chrises out there! Chris Colfer looks like a character out of an Enid Blyton book. You know those school boys who bump into fairies in the woods when they go out to play and having to learn a lesson from a magical spell gone wrong.

I watched Wicked when I was in London back in September, so I was absolutely thrilled when I read that Defying Gravity was going to be on Glee. Totally loved the version on it.

Here’s my take.

And for the longest time, I have been obsessed with Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance. Jimmy and Poh Yee who are usually with me on the four hour rides home to KL will have to endure at least a few rounds of Bad Romance and me screeching along to it.

So here it is as well:

πŸ™‚ Thank you for listening! Hope I didn’t get too screechy/breathy/nauseating.

Back to the books.

The Michael Jackson Mania That Came Too Late

In lieu of the hypocritical post-humous celebration of the legend that was Michael Jackson, I have to sheepily raise my hand and say that I am part of the masses who is now a huge huge huge huge huge fan.

Almost everyone is a Michael Jackson fan now that the man is dead. I shall embrace my role as one of the many hypocritics before I continue with this post. My mother even bought some of his concert dvds. My MOTHER! Whose last brush with celeb fanaticism was some old guy who sang the song Patches and performed in Genting Highlands a while back. To my amusement, she even told me that our part time cleaner is also an MJ fan. That got me into stitches. My aunty cleaner who doesn’t even speak english but nags all day as she cleans our house.

And today she sent my brother out to the bookshop to buy magazines with Michael Jackson’s stories in it. πŸ™‚

I keep telling her to learn how to use the internet, emails are supposed to be replied immediately not four months later. She’s totally missing out on a lot now that she wants to know so much about MJ and the internet is like spilling with everything that would be interesting!

Over the past two weeks, I’ve been googling and googling about all things pertaining to Michael Jackson. Of course, the stories surrounding his death are rather sensational (children not his, debts, drugs etc) but I’m not particularly intrigued by that. In fact, I find it boring. Especially the drugs. Ho-hum. What’s the big deal? Every other celeb death is assumed to be linked to it.

If you’re on my facebook, you would be bombarded by links to MJ stories and videos. So I thought it’d be a good idea to put it all up here and share it – something that I enjoy doing. When I like/get obsessed with something, all I want to do is share. Friends may remember the Moffatts obsession, the Douglas Lim craziness, Homecoming (chinese show) and maybe Lady Gaga for awhile. I try to like her.. but I only like a few songs. Welcome to the Michael Jackson mania, people. *bows*

Some people might find it annoying and I am just cowering waiting for some fierce person to ask me to stfu already. You know the type. Those who deem themselves to be anti-establishment, those who shun anything mainstream. Those who appear to be cool just because they are different.

It’s okay to embrace your own interests and I’m doing exactly that! All I can say is you guys should be grateful that I am no religious zealot, I would probably be the world’s most annoying evangelist EVAR.

Lie Yuen comes into my room less now coz she’s afraid I’ll trap her here over an hour torturing her with countless videos and photos of his children.

Because of his death, I finally bothered to listen to more of his songs and viewed his performances on youtube. I daresay that this is my first time, actually, watching Michael Jackson perform. All the while I only see him in the papers with his bizarre scandals and on tabloids. I didn’t grow up in the 80s. I still listened to nursery rhymes way into the 90s until 1998, when the boyband fever engulfed all little girls in that era. I thought the video to You Rock My World in 2002 was uber boring. I still do. But I love that song! But I loved Sophie Ellis Beaxtor, Shakira and Mariah Carey more at that time. How was I to appreciate the magic of Michael Jackson if I was not exposed to it enough? Advertisements in 1996 of his HIStory tour just didn’t cut it for me, neither did his face on my pepsi water tumbler which I carried during recess times under my armpits as a no nonsense school prefect.

So seeing him perform in the late 80s to early 90s.. I’m. blown. away. How can those legs move like that? Those crazy spins! Won’t his toes break?!

Scream more, Michael! Scream more! Oh how I love to hear him hoot and howl. I can’t copy any of that without sounding like a sick dog.

I’m sure every fan would have a favourite Michael era. For all his flak about the skin bleaching and the plastic surgery, I actually think that he benefited A LOT from a certain amount of plastic surgery. I like him best from Thriller to the times he appeared on stage for his HIStory tour.. that man is SMOKING HOT. A little black eyeliner is actually a good idea on male celebrities, not normal people. PLEASE. Think Adam Lambert. Thought he was a poofy wannabe from the pictures in the papers but saw him on youtube, quite delicious. So yeah, John Travolta style chin clefts don’t really cut it for me. He really should have stopped there, in the early 1990s.

Then I sit back and think, damn. This man is only one year younger than my father. Even my mother is a couple of years younger than Michael Jackson. Can’t imagine Michael Jackson nagging me to clean my room and not to come home so late. But I sure as hell am salivating over his svelte bod circa Black or White. Which is very wrong again.

Before I launch into the torrent of links and videos, let me wax lyrical a little about some of my favourite MJ songs.


The Girl Is MIne – a duet with Paul McCartney.

A lot of people have said they forgive Michael for a poor collaboration but I thought this was one of the nicest songs ever! The dragged out tunes, well controlled vocals and harmony.. I could listen to it a hundred times and not get sick of it. Maybe I’ll get sick of it at 105 but it’s still a really really really nice song. So easy to listen, so cute. I especially like the part where the instruments end on a little cliff hanger sort and MJ goes, “Don’t waste your time…~”. I twittered about how Paul McCartney really sounds like the Beatles in this song. Which is stupid, coz he is part of the Beatles. But you know, it’s different when you take him out of the comfort zone. It’s a nice touch. πŸ™‚


Scream – a duet with Janet Jackson.

LOL Why do I love his duets so much? His screams here are so goddamn sexxxxyyyy. ARGGGggggghHhhhh. Sort of like a surround sound effect that goes from the left speaker to the right. Instead of the ‘hee-hees!’ that he is famous for, he gives a sort of hoot. Very different from his usual style. The lyrics are just so in your face. They say that the HIStory album is very auobiographical, chronicling his child molestation accusations and the effect that the media had on him.

The music video – most expensive ever at 7million bucks given the technology utilized for the video in 1995 – is quite entertaining too though he looks very feminine here. Some men can pull off the feminine look very well. But please, my call to society, don’t attempt if you’re straight as a rod. Straight guys look hot as they are. Gay men are hot in the sense that they make girls weep because they are off limits. But drag-like..not a good idea if you still wanna pick up the ladies.

Janet’s really ..um.. spunky (sounds like a 90s word) in this. So full of charisma with that fierce factor going on. Very angry and very raw. I likee. And you get to hear the siblings say Fuck too in this video! Read somewhere that Michael Jackson NEVER curses. If Michael never died, I would have continued to be a bigger Janet Jackson fan. I still have Someone To Call My Lover on loop.


Beat It

Probably my favourite for his group dance moves. Weird part was the mouth breathing part at the pool table. I like the tune to “No one wants to be defeated.” I always find myself drawn to lyrics that are pronounced poorly. In the song it sounds like, “no-en wants oo- bee- defea-eh..”. Couldn’t wrap my head around the lyrics for the longest time before I managed to google it.
Oh and those hips swinging in sync with them finger snaps. Good lord. Tried it in front of the mirror, ended up a fool.


Billie Jean

I like his shouty songs and this is one of it! Furthermore, this is intermingled with his ballad voice. Overplayed everywhere, my ipod included, but this is where the world was first introduced to the moonwalk. And did I mention those crazy legs? Ultimate crazy legs in this one!


I Just Can’t Stop.. Loving You – A Duet with Siddah Garrett.

He initially wanted Barbara Streisand or Whitney Houston to do the female vocals but they had obligations and so he ended up doing it with Siddah Garrett, the lady who wrote his song Man In The Mirror. This is a beautiful ballad. Every song that I like and am drawn to is due to the uniqueness of the tune. A little something that sets it apart from other melodies. And this song’s defining moment is the part where they duet, “I just can’t stop.. *beautiful pause*.. loving you.”


Thriller

Yes, yes. Overplayed. I first heard it in 13 Going on 30. I loved that movie so much, cried to it more than a few times. LOL. Made me have more faith in the everlasting love of childhood sweethearts. Does high school sweetheart count? πŸ˜› After watching Jennifer Garner perform the thriller dance with Mark Ruffalo, I was like, “What is this awesome song?” This was before Youtube was famous. The year was 2004 and I only had Ares.

Why I love Thriller? The opening line is good, “It’s close to miiiiiidnight.. *ah*”. But the unique part of this song for me is “No ghoul would ever dare try”. Of all my years of listening to this song, I never bothered to look up the lyrics. I’m always like, “Wha? What does no goo goo wud ever dare whyy means?” Though parents always put emphasis on pronunciations, but artists need to mispronounce to sell a song.

I also loved watching the making of Thriller! The make-up process is awesome… as best as they could possibly do in the early 80s. Michael’s smile was the most beautiful during those years. There’s also the rehearsal scenes where the zombies are in leotards .. as normal people.. and with Michael leading the group they practiced and practiced. I thought that was pretty interesting. And also the purple Mickey Mouse sweater he wore when rehearsing his scenes with Ola, the girl who played his girlfriend. Among the many funny comments for that video there was one that said, “WORK THAT SWEATER!!!” He was very childlike in these videos. Running around like a monkey and all. Oh and I also thought that it was super cute that the director, John Landis, would call out to the zombie, “OKAY KEVIN, COME ON OUT!” and the coffin would slide open and the ghastly dancer would emerge.


We Are The World

I know. Another overplayed song, but gosh. If you listen to him doing the recording in this video, it’s really really really breathtaking. Without the added parts of the other celebs, just Michael on his own. The melody sticks in your head, in Michael Jackson’s voice. Not the poorly harmonized versions my school mates, year after year, have butchered to nothingness but a memory of a bunch of Malaysian school kids performing for charity.

As my classmate Narjit commented on the facebook link, his smile is so beautiful here. Unique point is “We are the ones who make a brighter day so let’s start giving”. There’s just a certain bounce to this part of the melody.


Human Nature

I’ve never heard of this song before till after his death. I can’t find the video now, but it was one of the announcements of his death made by a big broadcasting network. The camera was sweeping over Times Square where LED displays were announcing his death and the chorus, “Why, why, tell them that is human nature” was playing in the background. The song itself has always been slightly haunting with the echo-ey effects. Plus the meaning of the lyrics and the way it sounded and the purpose of the video announcing his death, was really very creepy. And I loved it!

Unique point is the chorus, no doubt and also the part before the first chorus: “If this town is just an apple, then let me take a bite.”

Black or White

First of all, the intro was unnecessary. Yes, Macaulay Culkin is cute and all that, but I wish it was cut out because it would take me a long time to get to my favourite part which is when he would sing, “I took my baby on a saturday bang.” That would be the unique part of the song. Then he had to spoil it by inviting some rapper on board. The screaming part, is okay… but I wish the softer parts of the song could have gone on longer.

By the way, does anyone know what a Saturday Bang means? Couldn’t find any lyric deciphering websites for answers.

Because of all the obstacles I had to face to get to my fav parts, I just listen to Adam Lambert doing Black or White for my fix.


Ben

I’ve always loved this song. Even before he died. One of the most overplayed songs on my ipod. It’s one of those songs that I can really belt out in the toilet, ahem. Much to my neighbours chagrin. So much soul, so much pain! I had tears in my eyes when I read that he dedicated it to a boy dying of cancer. The tears disappeared when I learned that it was originally for a rat. -_- Beautiful song, none the less.


You Rock MY World

Chris Tucker spoiled the song!! Why was he asked on board to retardadize the intro?! If you watch the video, you’d notice that there’s always a pattern to his music videos. He is particularly taken to gangs and mafias. Like Beat It, Dangerous, this was no different. He could have done better though. Not enough dancing in this one, not enough shamones, not enough howls and hoots. It’s pretty clear that I truly adored the michael of the 90s. But I loved the song! Favourite part would be the beginning: “Oh.. My life..will never be the same….”


Childhood

He mentioned in an interview that it is one of his most autobiographical songs ever. A little too direct for my liking but I lingered on because of my love for disney songs. Yes, it sounds very much like something Aladdin would sing while staring at the moon. But I’m also pretty intrigued by it because in an article (one of the better articles) I read, the journalist was taken on a tour of Neverland ranch by his best friend Elizabeth Taylor. He mentioned that he saw the carousel in the themepark going round and round with nary a soul on board, and the song “Childhood” echoes through the lonely park. A cartoon of two quacking characters were projected onto a screen, no one watching. Freaky shit.

The video is quite haunting too but it really underlines his fondness for Peter Pan. There are even those floating boats that the lost boys sat in in their journey back home.

Other notables are Strangers In Moscow and Dangerous. Dangerous was only interesting because of the super synchronized dance moves and the chorus which was done in the form of choral speaking by grown men.

For those who have not bothered or done enough of MJ-stalking, you might like to see the infamous documentary “Living With Michael Jackson”. It was said that MJ was ruined after the bastard Martin Bashir won his trust and twisted everything he said.


This is only Part 1. The rest will be on Youtube. I don’t need to teach you how to use Youtube right?

Then check out MJ’s retaliation:

I don’t know which part it was but there’s a scene where MJ talks about Bubbles, his pet chimp. I don’t know which was cuter. The seriousness on MJ’s face or the fact that his chimp used his toilet, eats with his fork and spoon coz he’s really polite! He could even do the moonwalk too! Bubbles is so cute, Brenda wants to buy one too when she has money. LOL. Poor Bubbles is now in a sanctuary with other abandoned chimpanzees and orang utans. He has a best friend called Sam and he is really sweet to the infant chimps there. He would stand one side when he hears them coming to the fountain. πŸ™‚ Apparently he was not told of Michael’s death.

Alright, done watching the two documentaries? Okay, now watch the spoof. Rowan Atkinson looks EXACTLY like Bashir!

Now for the links that I wanted to share. Yeah, those are the preliminary ones. Heh.

There’s this ‘investigative journalist’ who wrote rather interestingly about how he expected Michael Jackson to die.
Read: How Michael Jackson Predicted His Death 6 Months Ago.


Some of Michael’s homevideos. It shows that he is very human, a little peculiar, but still fun to peek into his life. There are many more on youtube. This was particularly interesting as it had Macaulay Culkin in it. At this point, I have not read up on all those child molestation allegations made against him. Plenty around the web if you do a bit of searching. Most recent thing to surface would be a video of him being interrogated by a bunch of lawyers.

As most of you probably saw, a video of him in full dress rehearsal days before he died:

This was particularly sad. The dancers all looked so hopeful.

Another aspect of MJ that everyone can’t seem to get enough of (me, me especially me!) and that is of him as a father:

Watch the video here. Can’t seem to embed this one.

As many conspiracies there are out there, this was particularly interesting. Don’t know how true it is, but it’s definitely worth a read.

This one is an account by the paparazzo who snapped that extremely lucrative photo of MJ’s final moments. Sounds disgusting right? But the paparazzo had a good heart. Read on. You’ll also see how extremely generous and nice MJ was to his fans. It’s almost unbelievable. He was even pals with this paparazzi guy.

If you’re like me, particularly fascinated by the children that he raised, you might like looking at these pics from the memorial. Blanket is sooooo cute! I don’t know why people are making such a big deal if those are kids or not. He was the one who loved them and clothed them. But if anything, Blanket is 100% MJ’s son. The resemblance is very obvious. I want a Blanket too. Where can I get one?

Again, if you’re like me, and can’t get enough of MJ’s humanized side, check this out: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=98326918727 . It’s a facebook group set up by the wife of Al Manik, MJ’s millionaire lawyer friend, with personal photos of Michael, his children and their friends. She did this because she was sick of the tabloids stealing her photos and making money from it.

But of course, this is by far the saddest video clip from the memorial:

It would only be sad if you watch it the first time. Trust the media to thrust it in your face until you get sick of it. Sat in the car this morning and within 10 minutes, they played the clip twice. NEED OR NOT AH FLY FM.

Okay, I’m done. :\
