    Sad as it may be to re-watch with regard to the fact that his health was in decline and it was going to be his last tour, "This Is It" is still a great watch. Even with everything he was dealing with, he still had it. Watching him communicate his vision for every move for every song is fascinating.

    I feel like it was on this big anthology boxset I have but I'm not sure. It's in storage right now but I'll check when I see it next.

    Still crazy to me that James Brown, Prince, and Michael are gone.

    Just watched This Is It (On Netflix) last night and it made me miss him so much. He was so passionate about his music and performances, and seemed like an amazing person to work with. He was kind, humble, and just seemed like a really cool dude.

    I really only knew of him through his songs, videos, and tabloids for the most part, so getting just a little glimpse of him was really nice.

    I haven’t watched that in a while but I’d like to revisit it soon. If only he had lived long enough to pull that run of shows off. It would’ve been a spectacle.

    This whole scenario has been making me really upset and conflicted this past week. On the one hand, I always say you should believe the victims. On the other hand, my heart always goes to Michael. In my eyes I've always seen him as having a child like innocence, and unfortunately that made him a target for a lot of predators trying to bleed him for money & fame.
    I haven't read that link that Steve posted above yet, but I'm assuming it's saying some things that I've already known. That one of the accusers from the upcoming doc had been a friend of Michael's for over 20 years, that he spoke highly of him after his death, and that he took part in many MJ tributes.....and that it wasn't until the estate denied him the job as head choreographer for the cirque du soleil show in 2013, he tried suing them for 1.2 billion dollars for emotional distress from sexual abuse. He's also mentioned in interviews over the years that he considers himself a master of deception.

    When I look back at MJ and all that he means to me, I want to believe his innocence. And when I see these articles about Leaving Neverland, I want to believe the victims. Fuck this is tough. The documentary doesn't air on HBO until April, so I'm trying to not let this occupy my brain until then.

    I’m going to reserve judgment until I watch it myself. If I’m being honest, I’ve always had some doubts about the popular narrative of MJ being “framed”, and I think when we’re dealing with accusations of this severity, they deserve to be aired and considered fully.

    Here's the thing:

    I want any accusations to be fully heard and investigated and treated with the seriousness they deserve and, if he were alive, I'd want him to face any necessary consequences stemming from those investigations.

    AND those accusations don't affect what his art means to me and the role it has in my life.

    That’s pretty much where I’m at also, so I respect both of your viewpoints.
