How's it going my gumdrops? Did you get my e-mail notification, last night? If not, you are gonna love this. After typing Shinigami In Japanese Folklores at 9:20 am, during Thursday, I clicked the "Publish" button. Within a few seconds, It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns went down!
It was not only my website that went down, but also many other sites through Webs were down on Thursday. Luckily for us, It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns is back up and running! I would really appreciate, if all my subscribers read the previous blog about Shinigami in Japanese folklores. I explain in great detail about their history, the similarities and differences between Shinigami and The Grim Reaper, etc.
On another note, I mentioned last weekend that today and next Saturday will feature music videos by a notorious yet beloved Pop icon. Over these last 2 years, I have been reluctant to share any songs or music videos by this icon because of the slanderous remarks and allegations held against him, since 1993.
Last month, Cory Feldman was a special guest on The Dr. Oz Show. Cory explained about his life as a child actor, the substance and sexual abuse that he endured as a teenager, his bond with Michael Jackson, etc. What I learned about them both was quite interesting.
Cory Feldman mentioned, that he was introduced to drugs at age 13 by his father's assistant. That same assistant was his rapist. From 13 to 17 years old, Cory abused drugs. By the time he became of age, he quit. However, the mainstream news rags continuously printed lies about him as an actor. The same especially applies for Michael Jackson.
While talking on The Dr. Oz Show, Cory explained about his rough time in Hollywood as a teen. He had difficulty contacting Michael Jackson, during his rough times.Since Cory was still young, he did not quite understand that Michael was in a high demand because of Michael's fame.
After con artists (including his own crooked, self-serving sister, LaToya Jackson) accused Michael of pedophilia, everyone had turned against him. These accusations caused him to become really paranoid. Michael had distanced himself from everyone including family and friends like Cory Feldman.
Considering Cory and Michael's past together as friends, Michael Jackson NEVER molested Cory. All the while, people in the media and other random nobody's are still accusing Michael Jackson of being a pedophile.
When mainstream news announced Michael Jackson's death 7 years ago, self-righteous Baby Boomer women, lonely housewives, Elvis Presley zealots, critics, cynics, and trolls wreaked havoc online over Michael's death.
On Soapnet, anybody who was a Michael Jackson fan and/someone trying to be the voice of reason got trolled with rape threats, death threats, derogatory slurs, etc. I am NOT saying this to sound like a Michael Jackson "worshiper." I have witnessed as well as experienced these vicious attacks on Soapnet and on other sites.
Slander and sexual abuse really hit close to home for some of us. They especially hit close to home for me.
You already know that I have spent an entire year having my reputation smeared by a sociopathic liar across Adult Swim's forum, while the head moderator colludes, plays favoritism, and condones such an atrocity. I also have my own history of dealing with sexual assault publicly, as a form of putting me in my place by an asshole jock, my high school senior year.
Whenever someone is a social outcast or is perceived as being highly influential, that person is BOUND to be seen as a threat to others AND can be treated as prey.
People fail to realize that other people are indifferent to almost everything, including the truth today. Because they never had to deal with others trying to maliciously ruin their lives, they don't care. Until something similar happens to them, THEN they will care and want the whole world to care as well.
Originally, I did NOT intend for today's blog to be a long college lecture or a speech. At the same time, these are continuous issues that need to be addressed.
All it takes is for that 1 threatened person to unload the most malicious lies about his/her perceived threat to ruin his/her reputation and lives. When I say, "lives" I mean the demonized person's life as well as his/her family's life.
With that being said, these next 2 Song Saturday blogs will feature Michael Jackson's music videos. Today's video is extremely rare and is probably the longest music video that Michael Jackson has ever done.
"Ghosts" was filmed 20 years ago, but was unaired on major music channels like MTV. Michael Jackson became blacklisted after the 2nd set of child molestation allegations were held against him. Shortly after Michael's passing, some of his accusers had come forward and admitted to slandering him.
There is more to come next Saturday. The best way to watch this music video is to watch it on YouTube. That way, you can maximize the screen. Anyway, here is Michael Jackson's "Ghosts" for today's Song Saturday.
