Still the best video to remember Michael Jackson. Don't miss the other XPLAY.FR Jackson uploads on Vimeo that follow this one.
Michael Jackson: Dead Like Elvis
A year later not much has changed. The Media has moved on to other disasters, without stopping for a reality check. Remember the endless roll of patchy, inconsistent and conflicting reports on the death of Michael Jackson, from the same TV and print people that were better at knocking him down while destroying his reputation in a similar frenzy not so long ago? Enough tabloid confusion left to spin out his tragic death for million$ more. Sorry Michael.
Though it sounds good and should look great in a thoughtful vacuous way, I'm not sure we want the Cirque du Soleil MegaMichael Project either. The Tour starts in 2011 and the Vegas Installation in 2012. What? No $100 Million hyperbolic oxygen theater?
A recent Newsweek retrospective is a better momento mori, an album of images and text that covers "What's Left Behind" though we're still nowhere near the truth.
For a serious look back at his death and the legend that lives on see the original feature story in NewsHammerOnCampus with new updates and more video: Michael Jackson: Dead Like Elvis.
