this is it

1 Nov

Just came back from watching “This Is It”, the limited release concert documentary of the late Michael Jackson’s preparation for the 50 planned London concerts.

thisisit_michael_jackson_rehearsalAt the beginning, it was a bit awkward and sad to watch.  As you see clips of his rehearsals, he looked so frail.  But even through his poor health and increasing age, his talent as an entertainer, pioneer and perfectionist really shown through.  Just watching the stage preparation and rehearsal footage was epic; his concert seemed like it would really live up to the bill as the greatest concerts of all time. RIP MJ~

I watched the credits and noticed that Nick Bass was one of the backup dancers (MJ picked 10 dancers from thousands of auditionees) for the This Is It concerts.  If I remember correctly, he helped choreograph Super Junior’s “Sorry Sorry” and a couple of other SM tunes.  Bit random but a small link to kpop XD

The other night, I went past a CD shop (called CHEAPY no less) which was showing an old concert of MJ on a screen. People, of all nationalities and ages, walking past would just literally stop and watch. In the middle of the road.  His legend will never die. CHEAP MJ

“In an interview airing Thursday night, Joe Jackson, speaking to Extra about his son Michael, said, “He’s worth more dead than when he was alive.” He quickly added, “I’d rather have him alive. When he was living, they didn’t show this.”

What a caring father.  Asshole
