I Like... Reminders / This Is It - 22nd February 2010

Just a gentle reminder that This Is It will be released on Blu-Ray and DVD on 22nd February. Clearly I'll be going for the Collector's 2-Disc version as it contains all kinds of unseen treasure just waiting for my consumption. And to further whet your appetite, here's an interview with the chief designer of Michael's stage wear, Zaldy, for the intended spectacular.

I Like... Interior Design / "Oh, hey MTV. Welcome to my crib"

It’s been a while since an MJ update, thankfully the madness of every man and his dog scrapping the barrel trying to claim money from him or claiming to have had an intensely personal relationship with him (completely fictional of course), seems to have subsided. But here is one last auction... This is apparently the furniture Michael had purchased to decorate the mansion he was set to stay in whilst residing in England. FYI he was going to stay at Foxbury Manor in Kent, which, yes, I looked up on Google Street Maps well in advance of June 2009 and yes, I was going to camp outside in the hope of perhaps seeing Jackson get into a blacked-out car, hidden under a hat, sunglasses and umbrella. Or even just a fleeting moment where we would share the same oxygen... Y’know?
Anyway, my favourite items, which owe to Michael’s impeccable interior design skills, are these vast velvet sofas which are encrusted with onyx crystals and topped off with cushions made from the same shimmering material as Jackson’s staple, sequin stage-wear.
