This week’s Photohunt theme is about music. My daughter is a self-confessed Michael Jackson fan. She collects CDs, magazine, created a fan site for the late music icon, and recently watched MJ’s last movie.
Arrgh…they watched MJ’s movie without me! I was really broken-hearted but what am I supposed to do? I was languishing at home toiling over an unfinished assignment. huhuhu. (~~>.<~~)
I definitely can’t write about it so I requested my daughter to write a sort of review for me. Guess what, you are reading an entry written by her now. My daughter is my guest blogger today. She is Naomi, future artist and writer. (^.^)
“We watched Michael Jackson’s “This is it” yesterday (Sunday). It was worth watching and I really enjoyed it. It was MJ’s best film as critics would rate it. As a fan of the late singer I agree with them. The best parts are his performances of “Smooth Criminal” and “Thriller” which are supposed to be shown in 3D during the concert and both songs are presented with new music videos. While watching it, you can’t help but dance and sing along with his songs. What’s great about it is that his voice is still the same like when he was younger. The film is really great and all his performances are really great even if it was just a rehearsal. He was and still is the great singer and dancer for me. The film is a must see movie whether you are an MJ fan or not.”
I couldn’t agree more. The review came from an avid fan herself. I can imagine the joy in my daughter’s eyes while watching the movie. It was all Dad and kids bonding moment last Sunday and they had fun!
A burial and a birthday. Michael Jackson will be laid to his final resting place on August 29, the day he is supposed to be celebrating his 51st birthday.
The birthday burial will be held at the Los Angeles’ Forest Lawn Cemetery. It would be a private event according to reports. The date was set two months after the pop icon’s demise on June 25 due to heart failure.
Investigators are eyeing the role of the prescription drug – a powerful anesthetics – in the death of Jackson which was said to be administered by his personal doctor Conrad Murray.
Meantime, my daughter is bit sad today when she learned about the announcement of MJ’s interment.
My daughter is a Michael Jackson fan. About two years before the King of Pop died she was already listening to MJ’s songs and even downloaded some of his popular music videos. When Michael Jackson died on June 25 her liking for the pop icon’s music becomes more evident. She does not only sing his popular songs, but also dance to their upbeat tune.
She reads anything about Michael Jackson – from his childhood to the most recent event related to his death. She also started collecting pictures of Michael, mostly downloaded from the Internet, and organized them in a clear book.
She also requested her father to have MJ’s image printed on her newly-bought white shirt. The latest in her collection is an original limited copy of MJ’s CD (The Essential Michael Jackson). I asked her what particular Michael Jackson song is her favorite. She said all because the songs are ‘addicting.’ I think her fondness for the music does not interfere with her studies at all. In fact, she got good grades during her last exams.
To remember MJ in her own way she open a Friendster account that will also serve as a fan site for her and other young person her age.
Here are some of her collections which she treasure so much. She took all these pictures using a cell phone camera that’s why shots are a little blurry.
