    Eye simply forgot that Michael Jackson died --5 years ago yesterday:em4600: (circa June 25 2009). What a loss...:em4200:


    No one will ever match
    the Man who grew from
    a little boy of 8 from Gary, Indiana
    into an ICON to the World.

    Yet I remember when Michael Jackson did that Pepsi commercial Jan. 27, 1984 and sustained 3rd degree burns in the top of his head (eg. he wore a geri curl at the time). The news of his accident ------which resulted when ignited sparks burned a hole in his scalp.


    Pepsi Clip


    After watching the short clip from last nights' CNN broadcast with Dr. Conrad Murray (eg. his body languae did not match the words coming out of his mouth. My conclusion is the same. There is no remorse in this doctor/physician who fed Michael Jackson a myrid of drugs by IV and then abandoned him at the high of efficacy....



    Alphonso Ribeiro also speaks out on the accident that undoubtedly started a life dependency on 'prescribed' medications.,.

    I had also forgot about this clip of Alfonso and Michaael Jackson

    I've been listening to quite a bit of him lately.
    I was just wondering the other day why I had a yearning to, I totally spaced the day he past, but he's been in my mind lately.

    I really like the early days when he and the brothers performed together, and the interviews.

    Watching him, I get choked up a bit because your are right, he's unmatched for sure!
    Rest with peace MJ

    As much as the brother needed help, and I am not trying to be funny here, he was gifted. RIP

    Five years!!!.....and yet he has made more money while he's dead than Jay-Z, Kanye Westor Miley Cyrus put together. In fact, since his death it is reported that his music has grossed over 700 million dollars!! Still the KING...even in Death!!

    Yeah for me, there's times I feel anger and sadness towards him.

    It was the not so subtle transformation of his skin, facial features, and hair that through my for a loop because growing up watching him made me feel very proud as he took the music industry by storm and captured so many with his songs.

    I loved pretty much Everything he worked on from Disco, R&B, pop, rock. ..
    The Brother was / is cold!

    He lost some of my respect though in regards to his surgeries,...
    I mean, he was always a good looking cat, slender, great big ole smile,

    I think though that at the time Black folks loved him, but saw him as too soft, Black Women couldn't get enough of MJ.

    It would have been soo good to see him marry a young Black Actress or maybe not anyone in the limelight because maybe then that could helped him stay grounded and in touch.

    I was annoyed seeing him running round with Brooke, and that other Lady who played a white Cleopatra ( can't remember her name)...
    But I was thinking 'Da*n Mike, you got like 10 siblings and other family and you running around with THEM?'

    I Just hoped to see him in a serious relationship...
    Something like Angie and Jesse, from what was it ..General Hospital?

    I started a thread Wednesday on the Afro, what we also called the bush and the fro. In that thread, I gave credit to Michael Jackson, and recognized him and his brothers as the young brothers who introduced the hair-style to black mainstream, inspiring almost all the other black groups and artists, young and old, to adapt to the hairstyle, including average young and old brothers on the street like us back in the day. After reading this thread, I just realized I started that thread on the 5th anniversary of his death. I can't believe it's been five years already. What's disheartening is, there are a lot of young ones out here who don't know it was Michael and his brothers that made this hairstyle-style popular for brothers from coast to coast. Wikipedia doesn't really credit him or his brothers enough for that historic trend, which is why we need to be more responsible for telling our own history. Now that I think of it, a lot of brothers also referred to the bush as the MJ later on during the 70's.

    Michael was a huge icon before he even went mainstream. He was before his time. I take my hat off to this brother for giving all that he had. His name and music will surely continue to go down in history.
