requiem for a dreamer…

Add Glitter to Pictures


today i went into a thrift store, and saw about six 10and-under yr olds sitting on the floor watching a wall of tvs broadcasting BET’s tribute to Michael Jackson
…………………<3…………………………………
i was definitely in love with Michael Jackson when i was younger…my life was all about MJ and the TMNT. we had a family friend who worked in a record store and he gave me the gigantic promo poster for Dangerous…about a year ago, i realized that cover was painted by Mark Ryden, one of my fave art stars…my original poster was long gone by then but i was able to find one from a printer in Korea…gorgeous
dangerous

…………………<3…………………………………

also had a copy of the movie MoonWalker which i watched to vhs death. heres the beginning of the film, watch the crowd FLIP A SHIT…

the movie also included (among other bizarre and PSYCHO installments) the epic video for Leave me Alone which is arguably inspired by Mark Ryden and WHICH leads into (at 4:27) one of my childhood nightmares = the prequal backstory to Smooth Criminal…

so heres the deal, Jacko and friends (including a young Sean Lennon) are hanging out playin ball in a field, when they accidentally stumble upon Joe Pesci’s secret lair. Pesci is guest starring as a spider fetishing drug dealer angling to sell to children…“Bugs and Drugs. a smooth operation.” FREAK.OUT.
cut to= big city alley way, Jacko is being chased by Pesci’s mobsters and turns himself into a goddam CAR in order to jet out of there…the plot line then dissolves into Smooth Criminal but the nightmare has just begun…

*SPOILER** MJ is a cybernetic transformer FOR REALS…check it out

interesting tidbit, Michael and his dancers had to wear these patented “leaning shoes in order to get that famous 45degree angle you can see at 2:07 in the above video…

i dont really understand the science…maybe its got something to do with suction?
…………………<3…………………………………
another bizarre film project of MJ’s was Captain EO, a 3D film shown in Disney Theme parks in 86. the film has a seriously impressive roster; it stars Michael Jackson, was directed by Francis Ford Coppola, executive-produced by George Lucas (there are a bunch of Star Wars references), and costars Anjelica Huston. raaaaaandom….
its a kitschy sci-fi adventure story where MJ has the power to morph henchmen into backup dancers….truly…
Vodpod videos no longer available.

more about “captain eo – Google Videos“, posted with vodpod
