“I’m interested in making a path instead of following a trail and that’s what I want to do in life-in everything I do.”DWT TWO

Michael Jackson, Ebony, 1979

“There is no way his light can be contained now. Too many have been affected…changed.  It is done.  Now, we have the Bliss of living him.”


Michael Jackson Fifth Anniversary


“At the end of his remarkable journey, the fuse was lit in our hearts to follow his light.

The HONESTY PATH versus the “myth trail”…WE in the Michael Jackson Fan Community have discovered the realities of truth, and are defining those realities by forming THE NEW MEDIA…alight in the bliss, our lives changed.  Our collective energy is thwarting media vicious assault.   Lies and unethical practices have for years garnered “talking head” adulation.  But, as with the boy who cried wolf, such repeated behavior in the face of real fact reaps backlash…and, the distrust that ensues grows a tap root so strong that it reaches everywhere.  Some may find a steady diet of ridicule, sarcasm yokohoma twoand disrespect entertaining, but the savageness leads to asking WHY?  For the Fan Community, each blow felt by Michael Jackson, empowers and strengthens resolve…there may be debate from time to time, but, when faced with a choice…THE NEW MEDIA CHOOSES MICHAEL JACKSON.  Loyalty and inspiration are well-DIRTY DIANA SIXearned.

Those whose attacks take the shape of defaming Michael and painting a self-serving picture have yet to realize that walking the talk requires deep commitment far beyond an interview on network television.  These people neglect to remember Michael’s INEXHAUSIBLE TALK-WALKING.  Michael’s public and private life was the very definition of PURE LOVE.  HE NEVER CHANGED.  It is a mistake to underestimate Michael Jackson’s Legacy…and, to underestimate the light power affect he has in the world.

“Nothing would make me happier than if someone were comforted knowing the enormity of Love, respect, and reverence that is demonstrated at Holly Terrace inHANDSOME TWELVE His name on that day by so many.  And these are only the few that can travel there…imagine the immensity of everyone on earth who Loves Him coming together on that day???!  They wouldn’t even fit inside the gates.  Nothing can undo our love and what we know.  He is a HUGE LIGHT in this world-like nothing before.  I SO believe in Him with all my soul.”

There is a growing congregation commemorating all dimensions of living well…kindred hearts who have honored privacy, but now, wish to celebrate.  My efforts in memory- keeping lead me to the page.  Over and over again, I live the Chinese Proverb:  “If photo shoot twosomeone shares something of value and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others.”  My dream is to provide a record in PAYING MICHAEL FORWARD.  It is my attempt to assist in the NEW MEDIA…telling Michael Truths.

“Michael wanted to be photographed in an artistic setting and the Brooklyn Museum gladly accommodated us all.  We shot in the midst of ancient and contemporary history and it was powerful to be in that space.  We worked with celebrity fashion stylist, Phillip Bloch, to develop concepts for wardrobe and then his team went shopping.  We really wanted him to lookphoto shoot elegant and timeless on the cover.  We found a number of looks that would achieve that and presented them to Michael.  He ultimately chose what he would be happy to wear, which turned out to be far more outfits than we had time to shoot.  It was a lot of fun to work with someone who looks great in clothes.  MJ was the perfect fit for everything we put on him.  He’s got the body that any woman or man would die for!  At 49 years old, he had a slim dancers’ body.  It was a lot of fun to work with someone who looks great in clothes, who knows how to move his body and who understands the camera.  It was magic!  (“I think that MJ was very sexy.  I think that anytime I put clothes on him, he looked better than any supermodel.”  Rushka Bergman)  For a man nearly 50, he was still incredibly limber.  He showed a few of his classic moves during the photo shoot…the leg twist/kick move in particular. He’s still got it!  (Bryan Jackson Ebony/Jet)

The stories of MJ being extremely gracious are shown to be true.  He made a special wmcig threeeffort to shake the hand of every single photographer assistant, make-up artist, lighting person, magazine representative and venue staff member on set…something that impressed his personal assistant, Michael Amir Williams and Ebony/Jet Editor-in-Chief, Harriette Cole.  What I loved the most working with MJ was how kind he was to everyone.  He was gracious to the elevator operator, the guard and the executives in the museum.  He made sure to thank each person who was in ear shot when the shootGITM THREE was over.  He was generous and kind.  Did some people feel intimidated by him?  I don’t know if that’s the right word.  I think some people were mesmerized.  Some were pinching themselves wondering if they actually were in the presence of the King of Pop.”  New York September 2007  L’Uomo Vogue and Ebony/Jet  LAST PHOTO bow twoSHOOT DOCUMENTATION

“Recently, a young man asked me what it was like to share the stage with Michael JacksonBeing on stage with MJ was a ride in a whirlwind.  The entire band, singers, and dancers accepted the challenge of bringing it in the same way Michael brought it.  We weren’t stopping til the train pulled all the way into the station.  Michael hit it hard, so hard, too hard!  Every single night out, he would hammer down the show like he was trying to bust up a mountain.  It was always: ‘This is my last show.’  Most of us say it, but, that’s the way he did it!  He danced hard.  He sang hard.  He always struck me like an artist just getting in the business and trying to make a name for himself, like he had something to prove.adorable twenty one  He tried to slay it as well.  We rode Tyrannosaurus Rex into the mouth of a volcano.  We surfed the lava, the board melting under our feet.  Whatever MJ did, we followed him.  If he stopped, we hit the brakes.  If he kept going, we fired it off.  All the way up.  All the way down.  Talk about a high.  WOOO!  After each show, it felt like I’d ridden a comet to the moon.  Can’t even describe it to you.  My first world tour.  MJ’s first world tour.  We were out to conquer the universe.”  Dorian BADTWENTY-FOURHolley  2013 

“Michael Jackson inspired millions of people around the world, he is the artist the other artists look up to.  Meeting MJ may be considered quite an unreachable privilege, he’s the star among the stars, a dream that few, even in the entertainment world, can say they have achieved.”  Gessica Puglielli and Gianni D’Andria

At 2:26pm on June 25th, following a moment of silence, as we stood in a huge circle joining hands in front of Holly Terrace, a group prayer was offered from one very elegant man.  His prayer was so deep and inclusive and full of LOVE…one that acknowledged who Michael was and what He came here for.  He spoke of Michael’s message and impact on our hearts…and, we cried from JOY.  Then, we all sang MAN IN THE MIRROR from our souls like we couldn’t hold it in, like a gospel choir.  It was spiritual and of such FORCE!

The truth dazzles!  In reaching for it, we see its blinding light.  Although we often wish it would happen more quickly, we accept its gradual force and we are grateful.  “Perhaps everything terrible is in its deepest being something helpless that wants help from us.”  Rainer Maria Rilke  We are inspired by a man who could turn pain into fuel and burn it for the good of the planet.  His impact drives us forward to share what we know.  As the NEW MEDIA grows, can justice be far behind?  Everything inside of our beings and outside in the world joins together in action REACHING FOR THE TRUTH.

I love you.

One thing this remarkable journey has taught me is that pure intent and honesty have found no home in the media.

For those who have chosen an introduction to Michael Jackson, claiming the events of his life, embracing the idea that our lives are an instrument by which we experiment with truth.. have been rewarded with a gift.  We feel that Michael is still with us.  His presence gives inspiration and hope to our days, magical wonder to our nights.  Each of us has redefined life using Michael as a complex and wondrous blueprint.  We have made the connection between past, present and future, carving our own unique paths.   For some, the winding journey follows artistry.  Others have chosen to continue Michael’s dreams for the planet.  Many work tirelessly for the children Michael cute tenloved so very much.  All join together in one voice to save the voiceless…children, animals and the ecology.  Through this sometimes painful process, we have been well-schooled in the realities of Michael’s unjust victimization by the media.  For me, the media that has hounded Michael his entire life, lacks any redeeming qualities.  I simply believe NOTHING they say or write.  They have worked diligently to teach me that horrible truth…and, they have accomplished it brilliantly.  If that sounds negative or extreme, there is a hopeful panorama which gives me the courage to face the future.

If we look back to the decade of the 60’s, we will find valor and bravery in the form of the Civil Rights Movement.  The FREEDOM RIDERS were men and women who risked their lives in peaceful protest, quietly demonstrating social disobedience.  Beaten and imprisoned, they never used violence. Their history teaches us what total commitment to cause looks like. They were seeking integration.  Watching film from that era brings me to my knees, weeping. It was a bloody struggle, one that gave us a today where segregation is AGAINST the law, rather THAN the law.emotion nine

Michael Jackson Fans have taken to the internet as the NEW MEDIA, energetically working to erase the myths and lies created and sustained by today’s version of journalism.  We do not employ the “cut and paste” mentality.  Instead, we study and read and watch and learn, trying to deliver Michael Jackson truths.  We understand Michael’s huge effect on our culture, his bravery in civil disobedience, done through his speeches and lyrics, songs and performances, philanthropic missions.  He STUNNING THREEcontinued the journey of those brave men and women in the 60’s…and, he too, was abused and punished for it.

For me, I have wanted to PAY MICHAEL FORWARD by sharing EVERYTHING I have learned.  It is my privilege and obligation to give what I have learned to those who discover the articles.  I have also been privileged to join the masses of loving people around the planet who are reaching out to help children, to protect animals, and to work for a better world.  I am honored each and every time someone writes to share THEIRearth song thirteen journeys with Michael.  More and more people are coming forward to honor Michael with love and respect.  THE NEW MEDIA IS ALIVE AND WELL.  Today, I give you these truths…

“Michael had the most beautiful eyes I’ve ever photographed.  They were large.  They were expressive, They were deep.  I don’t mean that physically.  It was a picture into his soul.  I think Michael knew in every picture what he wanted to convey.  Even when he was completely natural, he could convey a message toeyes the camera.”  Harrison Funk Michael Jackson’s Personal Photographer

“Michael loved music so much…more than any other musician I have ever met.  He could listen for hours!  This is classical music I am talking about.  He adored Tchaikovsky, Debussy, Ravel and many other composers.  One of his favorite pieces of music was Nutcracker!  When he told me that, I laughed so hard!  Of course, he didn’t know that I had played Nutcracker at Christmas time for rehearsals for the ballet…and, also played in the orchestra, (for years,) and practically knew the score by heart.  When I told him that, he asked me to play some of it on the piano.  He never heard Nutcracker played on the piano, only orchestral recordings.  So, of course, I obliged…I happened to have the score at home.  (I don’t think anyone else could have persuaded me to play Nutcracker at home on the piano.)  He was absolutely transfixed by my adaptation of dangerous twenty fourthe score on the piano…and wanted me to keep playing.  That day, I played most of it for him…can you believe it?  I still laugh to myself when I think of that day.  He also adored Afternoon of a Faun by Debussy…plus, some other music by Debussy.  He asked me to play those pieces as well.  And, Ravel and Bach…which, of course, I did.  So I ended playing a great deal of music on that occasion.  He was an excellent audience!  On one of those musical days, I asked him to sing BEN for me and I accompanied him.  I shall never forget that.  Sometimes, he would get a far away look in his eyes and I would know that a song or some piece of music was coming to him.(And, at times, he would wake up with a piece of music already done in his head.)  One of those times, I ran to get my staff paper and pencil and asked him to sing the melody to me and I wrote down what he sang instantly.  He would have the entire piece in his head, the instrumentation, the lead vocals, the vocal harmonies, words, percussion…everything.  His ability to sing every part into a tape machine is well-known (with the rhythm in there as well)…beatboxing, it is called…but it was very fascinating to actually hear him do this.  When he recorded harmonies to his own vocals one by one…and remembered all the others he had just recorded…this is not easy.  All cute ninethe vocals were absolutely spot on.  He had perfect pitch. (The innate knowing of the pitches of all the notes.)  I have this ability as well…it is not so common.  Many musicians do not have this particular talent.  It is a huge asset in performing and it is very helpful in taking musical dictation.  I have to say that he was like a water tap…when the tap was  turned on…music poured out.  Every day I learned something new about him.”

“For me, Michael Jackson is a constant…maybe the only constant in my life, in bad world tour twoaddition to music, (and, of course, family).  He is a genius, one of the few artists who are really able to be fully connected to the Source while making music and dancing.  He was that child inside my heart, constantly reminding me of the wonders of the world.  He taught me to always look at the world with the eyes of a child.  He was a very special connection to the word LOVE…A LIGHT BEING.”

Gessica Puglielli

“I knew that Michael was a special man.  He has deeply lived up to the moment with me…humble, gentle, polite…maybe much more humble than me!  He made me feel as if he was not Michael Jackson, and I was Gianni, but simply two human beings in touch with the beauty of being human beings and sharing a special moment together.  Michael carries you away.  It is not possible for me to talk about him in the past.  He is smile twothere!  He is here!  The emotions went down inside of me like a waterfall.  You know when you’re living a unique moment…the birth of a child or when you meet the woman of your life…you know it’s a unique experience.  With Michael, I felt that.”

Gianni D’andria  Professional Dancer

Our NEW MEDIA is a global influence, introducing Michael Jackson’s truths.  The ground swell of its energy transmits Michael’s inspiration and hope to a world in need of sweet twoboth.  Through time, masses of people have bravely sought to make the world better, putting an end to injustices.  MICHAEL DOES CARRY US AWAY.  We introduce Michael Jackson to all who choose to leave media myth behind…with this warning…ONCE YOU GET TO KNOW MICHAEL JACKSON…IT IS IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO LOVE HIM.
