Do you see the Man in the Mirror?
In fight club they have a great discussion on who, in history, would love to get into a
Well in pap circles it isn't who would you like fight with, but what shot would you have
loved to have taken. Think about history being able to take one picture, do you want
to be at Fords Theater and watch Lincoln die, or sitting in the front seat when JFK gets
blown away. I always thought the greatest last shot would be a picture of Elvis, sitting
on the toilet, pants around legs, hunched over dead. He wakes up, takes whatever
drugs he can, eats a fried peanut butter and banana sandwich goes to take a crap
and never finishes his number two. An awful way to die for a King, but a wonderful
A day has passed and now the vultures descend upon the legend of,
but in truth the vultures have nothing to pick up, his legend was destroyed years ago
and what remains is the corpse of a tortured man. So forget Michael, because in
truth, his death, changes nothing. It's not like we are a nation waiting for his next single,
I mean MTV doesn't even play videos so who cares. Michael's death has shown us one
thing...we all suck as a society.
To show you where America is at, do you know what song of MJ's is number one on
iTUNES....MAN IN MIRROR. That sappy, bullshit, late 80's ballad is the song that most
people are buying to remember Michael. I am first to admit, Thriller,, that shit
kicked ass, buy that, but only in this country do we not buy his best work, but the
sappiest. Also his catalog is probably going to make more money these next few weeks
then they ever could, I mean as a business decision, MJ dying is great for his career.
And yet the media continues to follow this story like it matters. In Iran they say that the
revolution might suffer cause most people have tuned from that to MJ. Yesterday in
Pakistan we accidentally killed 60 civilians at a funeral when we dropped a bomb on them
and oh a global climate bill, the first in years, is probably going to go down in defeat and
yet MJ is all we care about.
See paps got it right, yesterday was the day, mourn him, try and get the shots, remember
the man, and then move on. Today paps are roaming the streets for other celebrities,
doing their job, moving on, and yet the media will cover this story nonstop until he is buried
or cremated, my bet , he being burned up. And yet they do it, because they have an audience.
Somewhere in middle bum fuck America, Americans are still crying, lighting candles, and
mourning his death...YOU DIDN'T KNOW HIM. I mean when my Grandma died, I hated her,
I didn't shed a tear, but I knew her, I was allowed to be sad. Unless Michael took you out to
dinner for your birthday when you were 13, do you really think you can mourn him? Hey I
can say Megan Fox is my friend all i want because I've shit her a dozen times, but in truth if
I die tomorrow she don't care.
Also every celebrity who twitters or releases a statement saying how much Michael was
there hero, remember that the man paid 20 million dollars to a 14 year old boy and his family
to not talk. Innocent men don't spend 20 million dollars on pay offs. I mean
made music too, but it doesn't seem like we play his songs too often. Somewhere there is a
25 year old kid who has at least 20 million in the bank all for letting MJ play with his nuts,
god where was he when i was growing up. He could have battered my balls around like ping
pongs for half that, but we are still missing the point, he paid 20 million to a kid not to say
what happened. What you think happened there? Think about it, so before we come here to
praise Brutus, lets know him.
My favorite MJ story is how he fucked. The two were friends in the
early 80's working on SAY SAY SAY. MJ asked Paul was business advice and Paul said
the key to making money, buy catalogs of artists. Paul is worth a billion today, why, because
he owns Elvis and Buddy Holly music. He has made much more off them then anything the
Fab Four did, and he was telling Mike this. He also mention that his bands early music was
coming up for a bid and told Mike he was buying it for this much money.......what does MJ
do, he goes out and outbids Paul, and swoops in stealing the mans own songs for him. It was
the BEATLES catalog that built Neverland. Karma my friends, don't fuck with a Beatle.
So the only good out of this death, hopefully Paul gets his own songs back, god knows he
needs the money.
