Michael Jackson: Man Behind the Myth

September 3, 2011

This is a great documentary that deserves its own post rather than just a simple mention in a comment!

Posted on Vimeo by Walking Moon Studios on 30 August 2011

Who was Michael Jackson really? Michael Jackson’s work, life and his “troubles” are not what you thought they were.
Jackson was used and abused relentlessly by a media gone mad because any mention of his name drew crowds and cash.
Learn the truth of who Michael Jackson really was as we take a look at the story behind the myth.

    This documentary is really great.

    Regarding LMP’s interview with Oprah…
    LMP definitely believes that MJ is innocent.
    She truly cares and loves MJ.
    On the other hand, she has her father’s legacy to protect- that Elvis should always remain “The King”.

    MJ is the true King no matter how hard they try to put MJ down.

      Have you guys seen this? Someone was walking by a lake, and saw an image of MJ in one of the rocks! It really looks like him! Take a look and see for yourself!

    Also, limited in the sense that he was not there. T-mez mentioned that on a recent interview. I answered my own question so read all my comments.

    @TatumMarie,

    “Tom Mesereau is awesome, but his knowledge of the 93 case is limited as well,”

    I have to disagree, Mr. Mesereau would have thoroughly interviewed Michael throughout the preparations for the trial. Attorneys will demand to be informed of anything which could kill their defense strategy. It was a given Sneddon would try and introduce the 93 allegation. T. Mes will also have seen the entire Grand Jury Transcripts, Law Enforcement. DCFS and all lab results in their original form which is something no Fan has. Because Mr. Mesereau does not discuss it, does not mean he is uninformed he had Michael and the documents to do that.

    I saw a term used in connection to Michael earlier today. I told the poster I’d share this with any I came across. The term is: “Tall Poppy syndrome”.

    Tall poppy syndrome
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    For the Leprous album, see Tall Poppy Syndrome (Leprous album)

    “Tall poppy syndrome (TPS) is a pejorative term primarily used in Australia, but also in New Zealand, Canada and other Anglosphere nations to describe a social phenomenon in which people of genuine merit are resented, attacked, cut down, or criticised because their talents or achievements elevate them above or distinguish them from their peers.”

    The history of this term is found at:

    Oh I believe that too. Michael is not innocent when it comes to “flirting” with women. Lol. He could have stimulated June’s illusion of being Mrs. Jackson in some ways. Still, as he mentioned in LWMJ he is attracted to the inside, and maybe he found her appealing in the beginning but later started to withdraw from her personality. The time line summary shows that he met the Chandlers, spent time with June and her family and then Lisa entered the picture during their friendship. The Evan and Dave conversation helps put the pieces together as well.

    The picture on the end of the film is unusual (time 19:50)- shivers through. It’s the perfect choice at the end of the film. Michael was a true gift. He gave us a great lesson of courage, love and humility.

    Yes, I meant that. I know they met in the 70s, but then Lisa was 6 and Michael 16.
