On this day I was headed to the San Francisco Best Of The Bay event at The Metreon, and walking down Stockton toward Mission when I got the news via a CNN message to my phone. I just stopped and wound-up interviewing a woman on the street. Then I went into the event, and it was somber at first – time and drink cured that. But Michael Jackson music was the theme. Michael Jackson will never, ever be forgotten. He gave all of us the gift of his talent – singing, songwriting, producing. Michael Jackson was a genius, and...

In sentencing Dr. Conrad Murray to four years in the LA County Jail, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor made himself a household name, right next to Larry Seidlin, the judge in the prescription drug case involving Anna Nicole Smith. Judge Pastor gave what can only be called a searing, roasting, flaming testimonial before announcing his eventual decision. Judge Pastor based his sentencing on his observation that Dr. Conrad Murray expressed no remorse at all for any of his actions that may have caused Michael Jackson’s...

According to TMZ.com, Doctor Conrad Murray will be sentenced at 8:30 AM PDT today, after he was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson on June 20, 2009. Its known that Conrad Murray’s lawyers are asking for the sentence to be probation, but given the circumstances – the death of Michael Jackson – TMZ seems to think the judges decision could go in any direction. Still, the max he can serve is four years in jail and many blogs think that he will not spend more than a few days in jail...

Two days ago a video surfaced that claimed to show Michael Jackson being escorted out of an LA County Coroner’s ambulance in a dark tunnel.  Given that few had the actual footage of the vehicle entering the hospital, and the design of the one in the video, it was hard to tell if it was real or fake.  The video made the rounds to many outlets around the World, and was the basis for my blog poll and video here.  I was waiting for a statement by the LA County Coroner’s Office to officially debunk the matter, but...

The vehicle is captures on...

Sadly, and it’s hard to escape what happened to Michael Jackson as even today I was listening to “Thriller” with a friend while working out at the gym, it’s reported that Michael Jackson death was a homicide. The L.A. County Coroner reports that Jackson was given a lethal combination of drugs by his doctor Conrad Murray, but also that another doctor Arnie Klein may be involved, too. Terrible. ...

Sharpton’s always a lighting rod for criticism for his “tell-it-like-it-is” style, and he presented it at the memorial. Sharpton gave one of the best speeches I’ve ever heard because it cut deep to the core reasons why many people love and defend Michael Jackson and for another reason: Jackson represents the growth of mainstream American Culture,...

YouTube, Yahoo, MySpace, Metacafe, DailyMotion, Blip.tv, StupidVideos, Sclipo and Viddler Michael Jackson’s passing is still a shock to me. The very idea that someone I feel like I grew up with left us at the age of 50 is just not right at all. I first saw Michael perform when I was 10 years old at the old Chicago International Amphitheatre in 1972; the Campbell family, who babysat me, took me and I remember it like it was yesterday. The Jackson Five was then the...

Yep. Only partly kidding. But the part about the 50-foot Michael Jackson Robot is true. The laser beam part of the story is true to. But let’s face it, what’s a robot going to do with laser beams? Where are those beams going to aim? Ah? Don’t you think Michael Jackson’s taste for authority is a little poor these days? What better way to keep the cops away from him than to have his giant robot zap a squad car or two? Think about it. My main question is will the robot have Michael’s Black skin,...
