Michael Jackson is Dead Video by Jon Lajoie

Jon Lajoie is awesome. I enjoy his work. The day after Michael Jackson died, Jon released the video for his song Michael Jackson is Dead on YouTube. With this video, I think he makes a great point about the media’s relationship to Michael Jackson. They made cash money by labeling him a freak on the cover of every major magazine at some point over the past 30 years. Anyways,  I’ll let the video speak for itself. The most poignant lyrics are just before the last verse:

oh it’s so sad that michael passed away
we loved him so much
oh really, really, did you love him
cuz from where i’m standing it kinda looked
like you hated him
and that you called him freak
and that you wanted him to die
but now that he’s dead
you love him and he’s a legend
and he’s so amazing
and we love michael jackson
how about you go fuck yourself
you big bunch of fucking hypocrits

The media is nothing if they are not hypocritical, but I will accept the argument that they are often nicer to people when it involves death. However, it is a flimsy argument, so all you media defenders should try to avoid using it.

This song was written (and the video was posted) less than 48 hours after Michael’s death was announced. Jon Lajoie’s got some skills. Well done, Jon. Well done indeed.

Michael Jackson Death Conspiracy Theory

Here we are not even 24 after Michael Jackson’s tragic death, and the Michael Jackson death conspiracy theories are spiraling out of control. In fact, I don’t think we have ever seen a celebrity death as big as MJ’s. With the amount of social media services out there, the commentary, news and conspiracy theories are spreading like wildfire. There is a post over at Mashable, claiming that 22% of all tweets contain the term ‘Michael Jackson’, and nearly 30% of all tweets are about Michael Jackson. I posted several links in yesterday’s Michael Jackson Death Conspiracy post, but here are several more links related to Michael Jackson Death Conspiracy Theories:

Update (6-30-2009): Someone posted a picture, claiming Michael Jackson is alive.

The site has published a grainy photo it says is Jacko, above, and claims the man who died on Thursday was a Jacko double with a terminal illness whose family will be looked after in return.

A message reads: “Over the past few days there have been many Michael sightings. People have e-mailed with pictures and amazing stories.

“Michael is alive and well and happier than ever. The plot was 10 years in the making but it had to be done.

“We know he is alive because we have seen pictures. Clear pictures taken June 26, 2009 of Michael Jackson lounging poolside with friends.
