Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake – Love Never Felt So Good


michael-jackson-featuring-justin-timberlake

Justin Timberlake said it was always a dream to make a song with Michael Jackson. Now, not only is their song “Love Never Felt So Good” a reality, but so is a music video. Four minutes long, the video is an obvious homage to Jackson, who died in 2009, complete with clips from his past music videos and dancers’ imitating his dance moves. “Love Never Felt So Good” is part of the album “Xscape,” featuring Jackson’s singing along with some of the biggest singers today, including Timberlake and Mary J. Blige. “Even when Michael was alive, we never stopped working on the song ‘Xscape,'” producer Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins said. “It was one of those songs where he specifically said to me, ‘It has to see the light of day one day.’ Jerkins said fans will be happy with the result. “Everyone did a really great job on this project,” he said.

Michael Jackson Is The World’s Top Dead Earner.


Not just once, but for the second year in a row, Michael Jackson has topped Forbes magazine‘s list of top-earning dead celebrities.  The King of Pop, who died two years ago at the age of 50, brought in $170 million for his estate over the past 12 months, enough to place him ahead of every other pop music act of the past year — both living and dead — except for Irish rock band U2.  Elvis came in second place, earning $55 million, thanks to his songbook and a hit Las Vegas stage production featuring his tunes mounted by Cirque de Soleil.  In third place was movie siren Marilyn Monroe, who had $27 million in earnings over the past year.

“Peanuts” cartoon creator Charles Schulz was fourth while John Lennon tied for fifth place with screen goddess Elizabeth Taylor, both earning $12 million.  While much of Lennon’s revenues came as payment from other musicians performing his music, Taylor’s largely came from her perfume White Diamonds.  The fragrance had gross sales of $54 million in the United States in 2010, according to industry experts cited by Forbes.  Taylor’s estate also appears likely to net handsomely from a December sale later this year by the Christie’s auction house featuring the late actress’s jewels, art work and gowns. Experts said it could fetch $30 million.

Forbes, which compiled its list by consulting agents, lawyers and other experts, said the year’s 15 deceased top earners were:

1. Michael Jackson

2. Elvis Presley

3. Marilyn Monroe

4. “Peanuts” cartoon creator Charles Schulz

5. John Lennon, tied with Elizabeth Taylor

7. Theoretical physicist Albert Einstein

8. Children’s author Theodor “Dr. Seuss” Geisel

9. Jimi Hendrix; Stieg Larsson; Steve McQueen; Richard Rodgers

NO THIS IS NOT A PICTURE OF ME.

It seems like ever since I put up the post about odd photos from the past (Parts 1 and 2), I’ve been getting recommendations about places to procure vintage photos of all different types.  I’m NOT trying to say that any suggestions from the fans were disregarded.  But one collection in particular, consisting of 16 retro photos caught my eye in a unique way.  Each of them has such an individual and intriguing element about them that I just can’t put my finger on.  Check the method.

My Top 30 Memories.


The 2002, December 4th Eclipse.

 

I was thinking recently about my future, and later on in life how I would describe world changing events of my past to my children as I experienced them.  We’ve all heard that a picture says 1,000 words, which in most cases is 100% true, so I dug up some collections of pictures and was able to comprise a set of 30 photos that exemplify some of the most important memories spanning the last decade or so.  The photos aren’t in chronological order (they’re a bit boring when arranged that way), and this isn’t every major event that’s happened since 2000, just the ones that I remember the most. Check the method below, and if you remember any of these events, let me know what you think, and your opinion of the pictures that represent them.  I’m extremely curious to hear what people have to say.

Michael Jackson x Ratatat


Click the pic to download the remix.

Its not necessarily a NEW mix of any sort, but I’ve gotten a few requests to put my Michael Jackson/Ratatat remix of “Do You Remember The Time” up on the blog.  This is actually the first mix I ever thought up (long before the demise of the King Of Pop) that has been floating around the web for some time.  But I’m hoping that having it up here will help spread it to a few more people.
