◆Michael Jackson - Take Me Away FULL New Song 2011

CoM0 TrB0
The more I listen to this song, the more I am getting addicted to it : )
Mix by Nathan Jay !!!
Reminds me of Aha's hit song "Take On Me" in the 80s.
マイケルの声(過去のアカペラ)なんだけど、音がmixで遠いところから響いているようなので、まるでマイケルがどこか遠い世界から歌ってくれているような不思議な感じです。。。

I am reading "Tatsinda" again after 40 years !!! It's a beautiful fantasy with a deep implication of equality for all people...

The picture is an American original book but I am reading Japanese translation wich I also read in my childhood. Wonderful book and illustration!

For My Grandmother

CoM2 TrB0
Last night I was thinking about my late grandmother who passed away 20 years ago when I was in the States. I was praying for her and saying sorry for not being with her when she was leaving this world. She was the one who practically raised me. So when I was saying sorry, suddenly the light of the room went off and came back soon. It was just like she winked at me....I was so happy to feel her existence near me.

R.I.P. Amy...too young to go
She was only 27.
We enjoy their art which they create by risking their lives...but we don't notice how dull our world can be without them...



And...her "Beat It"


"You know how you either grow up in a Michael Jackson house or a Prince house?” says Winehouse, whose accent reveals her north London roots. “For me it was Michael Jackson. I could never decide whether I wanted to be Michael Jackson or marry him. I don’t care what people say about him now because he’s a fucking genius. That’s it – th...e end! He was robbed of his childhood, which is why he surrounds himself with children. When you’re around kids you can be a little kid yourself and pretend that life is magic and you don’t have to be one of those sweaty people going to work every day. I completely see what he’s doing."
~ Amy Winehouse ~ (Amy's love for MJ 2004) R.I.P. Amy.

◆Michael Jackson Memorial Service - Rev. Al Sharpton

Michael Jackson Memorial Service - Rev. Al Sharpton


All over the world today people are gathered in love viduals to celebrate the life of a man that taught the world how to love.


People may be wondering why there’s such an emotional outburst. But you would have to understand the journey of Michael to understand what he meant to all of us. For these that sit here as the Jackson family - a mother and father with nine children that rose from a working class family in Gary, Indiana - they had nothing but a dream.


No one believed in those days that this kind of dream could come true, but they kept on believing and Michael never let the world turn him around from his dreams. I first met Michael around the 1970 Black Expo, Chicago, Illinois. Rev. Jesse Jackson, who stood by this family till now, and from that day as a cute kid to this moment, he never gave up dreaming. It was that dream that changed culture all over the world. When Michael started, it was a different world. But because Michael kept going, because he didn’t accept limitations, because he refused to let people decide his boundaries, he opened up the whole world.


In the music world, he put on one glove, pulled his pants up and broke down the color curtain where now our videos are shown and magazines put us on the cover. It was Michael Jackson that brought Blacks and Whites and Asians and Latinos together. It was Michael Jackson that made us sing, “We are the World” and feed the hungry long before Live Aid.


Because Michael Jackson kept going, he created a comfort level where people that felt they were separate became interconnected with his music. And it was that comfort level that kids from Japan and Ghana and France and Iowa and Pennsylvania got comfortable enough with each other until later it wasn’t strange to us to watch Oprah on television. It wasn’t strange to watch Tiger Woods golf. Those young kids grew up from being teenage, comfortable fans of Michael to being 40 years old and being comfortable to vote for a person of color to be the President of the United States of America.


Michael did that. Michael made us love each other. Michael taught us to stand with each other. There are those that like to dig around mess. But millions around the world, we’re going to uphold his message. It’s not about mess, but it’s about his love message. As you climb up steep mountains, sometimes you scar your knee; sometimes you break your skin. But don’t focus on the scars, focus on the journey. Michael beat ‘em, Michael rose to the top. He out-sang his cynics, he out-danced his doubters; he out-performed the pessimists. Every time he got knocked down, he got back up. Every time you counted him out, he came back in. Michael never stopped. Michael never stopped. Michael never stopped.


I want to say to Mrs. Jackson and Joe Jackson, his sisters and brothers: We thank you for giving us someone that taught us love; someone who taught us hope. We want to thank you because we know it was your dream too.


We know that your heart is broken. I know you have some comfort from the letter from the President of the United States and Nelson Mandela. But this was your child. This was your brother. This was your brother. This was your cousin. Nothing will fill your hearts’ lost. But I hope the love that people are showing will make you know he didn’t live in vain. I want his three children to know: Wasn’t nothing strange about your Daddy. It was strange what your Daddy had to deal with. But he dealt with it…He dealt with it anyway. He dealt with it for us.


So, some came today, Mrs. Jackson, to say goodbye to Michael. I came to say, thank you. Thank you because you never stopped, thank you because you never gave up, thank you because you never gave out, thank you because you tore down our divisions. Thank you because you eradicated barriers. Thank you because you gave us hope. Thank you Michael. Thank you Michael. Thank you Michael!

マイケルが亡くなる前の年にもパジャマで遊びに行っていた(パジャマ・パーティー)LAベルエアーにあるエリザベス・テイラー邸。遺族によって売りに出されることになったそうです。1980年代初頭から2011年3月の死去まで、彼女が愛し続けた美しい邸宅が、いま雑誌"Architectural Digest"最新号に掲載されています。

お庭のアーチが特に好きです。まさに彼女の Secret Gardenといった趣きです。

冤罪とは? 幸せとは? 生きるとは? ドキュメンタリー・フィルム『ショージとタカオ』

CoM10 TrB0
ショージタカオ


現在、わたしの住む京都でも上映されているドキュメンタリー・フィルム『ショージとタカオ』。ディレクターは、マイケルがご縁でお知り合いになった井出洋子さんです。

マイケル・ジャクソンのファンであれば、2005年のマイケル・ジャクソン裁判をはじめ冤罪の恐ろしさを感じていらっしゃる方も多いと思います。このドキュメンタリーは有名な冤罪事件・布川事件を14年にも渡って井出さんが追いかけたもので、2010年度第84回キネマ旬報文化映画部門ベストテン第一位に輝いています!!!

わたしはまだこの映画を見ていないのですが、近日中に絶対見ます。
チャンスがあれば、ぜひ映画館に行って、同じマイケルファンでもある井出さんを応援してあげてくださいね。

『ショージとタカオ』公式サイト:
http://shojitakao.com/index.html
______________________________________________


布川事件の殺人犯とされ、逮捕された当時、2人はやんちゃ盛りの20歳と21歳。無茶もしたし、品行方正な青年では確かにになかったけれど…。1996年11月12日と14日。それぞれ仮釈放されたショージとタカオは29年ぶりに堀の外に出る。ある縁がきっかけで、「殺人犯」というレッテルを背負いながらも、沈痛や悲壮さをあまり見せない、なんとも前向きな2人に興味を持った映像ディレクターの井出は、仮釈放から2010年の夏までを、そのカメラに収めた。

(中略)冤罪、自白、日本の警察や検察、司法制度、仕事、幸せ、怒り、笑い、フツーに暮らすということ…、実に「人間」臭いショージとタカオ。愛すべき2人のおじさんの「めげない姿」から、あなたは何を見るだろう。どんなことがあろうとも、めげず、あきらめず、立ち止まらなければ、人生は最後の瞬間まで続くのだ。
