Hi everyone!

Well I don't know how you all feel, but myself it feels to me like we have lots of new members and old members alike but I don't feel too familiar with a lot of you! So I thought it'd be nice to have a thread to introduce ourselves, chat and tell each other a bit about ourselves! I will go first. :)

So, I'm Stacey, I'm 23 years old. I live in Derbyshire, England. I just moved here last month after spending 5 years away at uni, and at various places around England. I'm a HUGE ass Michael Jackson fan, obviously! I adore him, I love all era's, I think he was mega fine throughout! I have a weakness for the curls though in all honesty! :lol: I can't choose a favourite song or video, I love them all! I'm a classically trained singer, I'm a movie buff and I love reading!

So, how about you?! :D

Re: Getting to know you!

I like this thread :)

I'm Angela just turned 26 last week, I live in Gouda which is a city in the Netherlands. I live with my dog on my own and have a job as a secretary. I joined MJJC one year ago but I was a fan of Michael a long time ago. I started when I was only 4 years old :D. But during adolescence I drifted away to other things I liked and later on got a whole different life with different priority's I will not discuss that here...but I kept him in my heart. I'm a bigger fan now then I ever was and I love being here surrounded by this huge MJ family.

Other then MJ I enjoy watching movies very much and I'm in the BJD hobby (ball jointed dolls). I make clothes for myself and the dolls, I have a MJ BJD :wild:.

Well that was something about me :yes:

I'm Stuart, I'm 17 from South Wales in the UK. I joined MJJC this July, but I wish I had sooner. I'm a student who enjoys computing and film-making. Michael and Frank Sinatra are my favourite artists and I collect records of theirs. Billie Jean is my favourite song and Thriller is my favourite album.

I think thats just about it.

Re: Getting to know you!

Hey to everyone!
I like this thread as well :)


I'm 28 (boy, how time flies!). I live in sunny Bucharest. I guess you all know about my city by now, so I don't have to go into details ;). I must admit, though, that I became a MJ fan back in 1992, when he first came to Romania. But that's a longer story and I'm digressing...So, I used to be a language teacher and now I'm a translator. Because of that, and not only, I love reading. I also love music. I wish I had played the piano better, but it seems I'm more inclined towards listening than performing myself :piano: Some of my other hobbies include dancing, painting and (Angela, it seems we have something in common) tailoring clothes for myself.

Oh, and one of the most impressive memories I have is dating back to the History tour, when I had the chance to see Michael live...

I joined MJJC... wait this one I need to check, because my memory does not work that far... So, according to my statics it was 2006 :D Right now I'm unemployed, but planning to apply for school next month.

Re: Getting to know you!

Hi I'm Sophie and I'm 24 years old living in Bournemouth, which is on the South coast of England after 4 years of lving in Southampton where I studied English at university. I'm currently a contact centre advisor which is alright but not what I want to be doing with my life so always exploring my options. Obviously a huge huge Michael Jackson fan from about the age of about 5 which I became obsessed with Dangerous and have never stopped loving him. I'm an all era fan but must admit a particular weakness for the Bad era. Anytime with Mike with curls though, just OMG!!!!! I love my music in which I am a trained violinist and love my film. Doing an English degree I obviously love reading with my favourite book being To Kill A Mockingbird.

Re: Getting to know you!

Ohh nice thread. :) I'm bad at introductions though but let's give it a try.

I'm Henny, 28 years old, from The Netherlands. I hope that one day I will find a job as Desktop Publisher or something in that direction. I want to do something with my creativity. I like to design websites from time to time though I'm bad with Dreamweaver. For now I only make things for friends and I once helped a magazine with the layout of some pages. I also love to read books, mostly fantasy and chicklit but from time to time I also enjoy books with a deeper meaning.
I remember that I asked my dad to take me to the Dangerous Concert. So i've been a fan for many years. At first I was just enjoying his music, then I started to collect pics and articles and after I bought History and went to the History concert I started to wear MJ shirts to school and collected everything MJ that I liked.
Some people around me think i'm a bit weird since I have a fascination for Asia, especially Japan. I listen to Asian music, watch asian TV series(mostly Korean and Japanese), watch anime, read manga and I collect PVC figures, specially Nendoroids. One day I want to buy a few BJD's swell but they are to expensive for now.

Re: Getting to know you!

I'm Tarin and I'm 24 years old. I live in Hamilton, New Jersey. I'm the oldest of three children; my brothers are 19 and 16. We all live at home.

I majored in Theatre in community college and at Penn State University, where I graduated from in May of 2008. Currently, I'm working in retail. I'm trying to motivate myself to start looking for better work, but sometimes it just seems like an impossible task. :(

I started playing the violin when I was in the 3rd grade, and continued through the first couple of years of college. It's sitting in my closet now, and I do want to play again, but I'm afraid of how badly out of tune it will be. :bugeyed At some point, I'm just going to have to face the music. *sorry* :doh:

In my free time, I enjoy reading, music, walking, working on my cross-stitch project, collecting coins, experimenting with photoshop-type programs, and of course, loving Michael. :heart:

Hi, my name is Christelle, but I go by Mikage. I am eighteen years old and biologically female. I am a native of a small planet commonly known as Earth.

I enjoy doing many things while on Earth, among them reading, writing, drawing and singing. My favourite novel is Victor Hugo's Notre-Dame de Paris. I enjoy reading books of various genres, but I read literature and non-fiction history books the most. I also read books on the occult.

My religion of choice is Thelema, but I like to read and learn about other pagan religions and monotheistic ones as well.

I am also into history, particularly WWII history, USSR, and American Revolution history. My favourite American historical figures are Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson, the two rivals lol. I am pursuing a history major at my university.

I enjoy listening to music as well. I am, of course, a Michael Jackson fan. I love him.

I am a fan of michael since my childhood and followed him around a bit during the HIStory-era and saw him at Mj and friends in 1999.

I've been a part of the MJ online fancommunity since early 1999 and was a MJIFC alllll the time from 1999 until it closed down.
When it closed down i've been visiting sites like mjno, mjni, mjjforum, kopboard and last nut not least mjjcommunity!

Also I wish I was born earlier just so I could've experienced BAD ERA Michael...... *sigh*

Re: Getting to know you!

Hello... my name is Kathy and i'm your average insecure nerdy girl who rather enjoys life while youtubing sillyness, playing videogames, telling rude jokes and moonwalk at the mall than sipping Cosmos, shop after the shoes with the biggest bling on it and gossip about THE HILLS!

So how does a Jesteress Provocateur like me get in touch with the King of Pop? Well, gather around children and let me tell the tale...

It all began with my one year older sis. She wanted to be a professional dancer, and naturally Michael was a big influence.
So it's no big surprise that she would look at Moonwalker and a big marathon of his videos often, and i was already a fan of Speed Demon then ha ha!

I wasn't a huge fan or anything, but i did enjoy his music and the stupid kid as i was back then wondered "How the heck did he change appearances?"

THANK GOD I'VE OUTGROWNED THAT!

I became a bigger fan thanks to "Ghosts" because the movienerd as i was and still am, it blew my mind! It was scary, hilarious and downright epic!

Even though i did many jokes in the past, i was sure that Michael was an innocent man during the trials.
But i wasn't one of those fans who wore a t-shirt of his face and such.. yet.

When i learned about his death, it was very surreal. A staffmember from my camp told me and i thought it was some sick joke and i read every newspaper in the building, checked every site online and watched every news programme on tv and kept telling myselg 'This is a lie'. But when mom called me, crying out loud it finally sunk into me.

Later when i read every article and stories about this man, i appreciated him more and more. How could a sweet man like him be so blackmailed by a large part of the world and the evilness which is the media who hurt him so much it finally killed him? Or... a doctor killed him, yes but i think the pressure was also a key in his death, idk.


Here i am now, 1 year and 2 months later. still exploring the greatness of MJ and making a big tribute by writing a novel octalogy based on the musicvideos of Michael, which is just a huge MJ reference galore! xD

So... that's my boring tale, and i'm so happy to join here!

Re: Getting to know you!

Hey guys,

I have been on this forum for a very, very long time, but I have neglected to really start posting here permanently. I post a lot in the 2000watts thread, but really that's about it, so I thought I would write a little about myself. :)

My name is Jess and some of you might know me from KOP/MJNI/MJJF as JadedJess... I'm about to turn 27 (aeeeghhh) and I am from a small country town in rural Victoria, Australia. If you remember me from my old posts, you might remember me as a bit of a jerk lol... promise I'm mostly grown up now. :p

I am the other half of steady-laughing.com and run it with my friend Vicky ... and have been doing that site now for over 5 years...

I have been a fan of Michael since I was around 5 and was blessed enough to have met him a bunch of times. I met a couple of members from this forum last year in London for what was meant to be my biggest dream come true... :/

So yeah... I'm looking to make some new MJ friends :) as always... I work in a cafe and have my own business as a web designer and am really in to arts (drawing, sculpting, bead stuff, knitted/crocheted, sewing etc) and do a lot of that in my spare time. And at the moment I am currently going nuts wiht my MJ video collection trying to transfer it all to DVD and hopefully share some of it on the 2000watts forum.

Nice to meet some of you guys! :)

I like reading, movies, traveling, watching sports and that kind of stuff. My music taste varies very much from Eminem to Stevie Wonder to Linkin Park and even the club hits that really don't have any meaning (though I only like those when I go out.. :D)
Currently I'm trying to find a job for this autumn and winter and hopefully get in to college in January to study tourism.

Nice thread btw :)

Re: Getting to know you!

I'm Nikki, I'm 26 years old. I currently live in a place called Winchester, England but I've moved around quite a lot since leaving my parents home aged 17. I am a student. I've been a Michael Jackson fan since I was a little kid, my first ever album I ever owned by any artist was Bad (on cassette). When I was 8 years old I (accidently) met him in the Natural History Museum in London but I was too scared to actually say anything and just stood there with my mouth open lol. I have a few hidden talents, I guess the one I'm most proud of is being a trained gymnast and being flexible enough to contort into positions that look painful haha. I am very proud to be the girlfriend of another mjjc member here - Motsey - who has just moved into my flat with me and makes me stupidly happy :D

Hi everyone! :) My name is Katie, I'm 28 years old and I live in Brighton, on the south coast of England. I live with my wonderful fiance Darren, and we're getting married next June :)

We share our flat with 2 beautiful cats - Betsy my 14 year old Persian, and Ben, my 15 month old Bengal. Solomon the hamster completes my little family. I'm a huge animal lover, and plan to have more cats and maybe some chickens when we get a house!

I've worked in retail for over 10 years now, cos I'm still unsure what I want to do with my life! I did recently complete a course in Photography, and I have a huge passion for the subject, along with all arts and crafts. Unfortunately I don't seem to get enough time to indulge in any of them, but I'm hoping to change that in the new year!

I can't actually remember when I first got into Michael, although it must have been around the time I was 4 as I was part of a dancing group who put on a performance of Thriller at my primary school! Thriller was the first cassette tape I ever owned :)

I also LOVE music, and I play guitar, bass, tin whistle and am attempting violin. I like to go to a lot of gigs as well. :)

Re: Getting to know you!

Hi - I'm Diane and I live on the outskirts of London. I am a geriatric member as I am now 48. Although I use the internet regularly I didn't join any fan sites until his death because I thought I'd outgrown fan clubs! lol I used to belong to Michael's snail mail fan club back in the day.

I am married with two girls and have been an MJ fan since seeing him in Wembley in 1972 at the age of 10; I've seen him several times since and been to many many concerts of other artists but none compare to Michael!

I work mainly in a primary school as a teaching assistant and also as a counsellor in a women's centre and bereavement centre after going back to college few years ago.

I am grateful to this site for many reasons!

Re: Getting to know you!

Hello all. I go by Mikage. I'm an 18 year old person, biologically female but mentally androgynous, who lives on the planet Earth. I share this home with you. My idol is Michael Jackson, of course, and his life has inspired me to attempt to do something with the raw material that is my own life. I am very grateful for the inspiration Michael bestows upon me daily, and I love him more than anything else in this world. He saved me.

I don't really enjoy pop music, especially the stuff which has been dished out in the last 10 years. Michael Jackson is the only pop artist I respect and admire. My musical tastes vary, but I indulge in mostly classical music and some satire, like Tom Lehrer, whom I discovered when I was 16 and still in high school. I love him very much as well.

Re: Getting to know you!

Hi, I'm new here ...
My name is Noah, I'm 16 years old and I come from Germany. I live in a small (and boring) town near Munich ...
I'm Michael Jackson fan because I like his music (of course) and because I love his voice - he emphasized each word in his songs with a lot of emotion. When I hear his music, I feel like I'm in another world. I also love his humanity and generosity.
My favorite song is "Smooth Criminal" and my favorite album "Bad".
In addition to Michael I'm interested in architecture, films and books ...
I hope that I can spend a good time here and make friends.
Thank you!

Re: Getting to know you!

Not new here, spend years here in the past and re-joined last year.

I'm Saskia and turned 30 years old last month. Sssssht, if any asks, I'm always 21 hahaha. I'm the youngest of three and with some age difference between us I can't remember anything else but growing up with Michael's music. According to my family I was dancing (well bopping around the room) on Billie Jean when I was 2 years old. The time I from which I start remembering being a Michael fan is from when I was around 7 years old (Bad time). No horse posters in my room, only huge posters of Michael. I really believe he (and my dad) gave me the love for music. I've always been a fan, unfortunately I never saw him perform live (my parents didn't allow me.....), but was supposed to in the O2.

I love music in all its sorts. Play the guitar myself and really want to learn how to play piano. Played tennis from the age of 6 and I also love to draw. I finished uni years ago and have been working in online marketing for a few years now.

Hello eveybody! :)
I'm from USA, but not an American. 26 year old. Apart from MJ, I love instrumental and classical music. I'm also crazy for action/thriller/suspense movies.
I've been MJ's fan since...today! lol... (because my love for him is anew everyday. :))
Long story short, "I am allergic to all negative people."

Nice to know y'all.

Re: Getting to know you!

My name is Chris, I'm 20 years old, and from Long Island, New York. I'm going to college for Broadcasting, and my career plans are to be a production director at a radio station, as well as a freelance audio engineer and producer on the side. I'm a musician, I play guitar, bass, keyboards, and I'm pretty decent at drums. I write and record my own music, ranging from Progressive Rock to Heavy Metal to R&B/Hip Hop beats. I've been making music since I was about 15 or 16 years old. Michael is my number one influence in music and in life, he's inspired all of my creative efforts and without him, I probably wouldn't be a musician today. I've been listening to Michael since I was in my mother's tummy, she used to play his records all the time for me. Dangerous was my first album (and favorite of all time), I still have that cassette to this day and it's one of my most prized possessions and has more sentimental value than just about anything else I own. Music is obviously a huge part of my life, but so is family. I love spending time with my family, I think it's the most important thing in life.

Re: Getting to know you!

Very nice threat!

I am a fan for about 20 years when the Bad Album was released. Smooth Criminal is my all time favourite song. Heal the word helped me when a loved one had to fight cancer. I danced to Blood on the Dancefloor very much. But sadly I discovered Invincible after Michael's death first. Marriage and motherhood had consumed too much time.
Now I am a proud mother of two beautiful children, married to my soulmate and very happy with my life.
But I would have never dreamed that Michael's death would have caused so much pain for me.

Hello Everyone,

Im new on this Forum. My Name is Chantale, i am from South of England. I am 16 years old and a Huge Michael jackson fan.

You may think because i am just 16 that i wouldnt know alot about Michael, this is not the case, i know just as much as those who have been fans for 40 years. =)

I have been a Michael jackson fan since i can remember which is the age of 5, i have been braught up with his music even before i was born and ever since. My first michael jackson experience was when i was 5 years old in America, where i saw Michael's Billie Jean costume on display alongside his glove, merchandise and his Beat it Jacket. I would post a picture but im not sure how too =)

I have a big collection of Michael Jackson items too, i really need a bigger Bedroom Lol !

I currently have a job at weekends and i goto college and study Catering and Hospitality =)

Hey everyone! My name is Emagine and I'm 14 years old.
Now don't just think cause I'm a young blood i don't know Michael because I know just as much as a person who has been a fan of Michael since he started;)
I live in Gary,IN and I have been a fan of Michael since I was 4:happy:
I remember dancing and singing to his music and just having a great time and always laying down looking at the sky thinking about how wonderful he is=]
I saw Michael in 2003 when he came to visit and i shook his hand and gave him a hug LOL
That was a really cool time in my life i wont EVER forget=]
Umm I'm about to graduate 8th grade in 5 months and I LOVE to paint more than anything. I dream of being a singer/dancer and also painting and doing volleyball on the side.
My favorite Michael era would have to be either Dangerous or Invincible:wub:
My first ever MJ CD was Invincible and my first video i saw of Michael was Scream=]
Aside from Michael i listen to Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Beyonce and some more older artists like Lenny Williams and Marvin Gaye=]
My all time wish would have to be for everyone in this world to become one...for us all to just come together and put all our doubts aside and just LOVE each other unconditionally. sorry if this is to much i talk alot i for got to tell u LOL=]

Indeed cool thread... :)

I don't think that I 'need' to introduce myself here as I've been here for awhile but I've been away and I'm back... I love reading this thread so its only 'natural' that I 'spill the beans' too as they say hey...

My name is Ann... though a lot of fans only know me by my nickname 'Daryll58 or -478' :tease:
I'm 38 and in June 39 :doh: I live in Bruges and 'officially' I live alone... Though I live 'happy' together with my 'perfect hubby' Daryll (My handmade MJ doll :wub:) and my 'almost real' son Mesereau William... He 'saved' me from a huge depression back in 2007 as my body can't make babies :mello:

Proffesionally, I cared for babies, toddlers and elderly people. I've worked in a gardencentre and I've worked as a receptionist in a trade union.
Right now, I'm home with a string of medical probs :smilerolleyes: I refuse to be treated as a plant or an idiot though...

I'm a writer but I prefer the name 'storyteller' as I love to bring escapism and awareness to my lovely readers... Creating is like 'breathing' for me and I love spending time with my 'spiritual' master :wub:

I love writing (of course silly :doh:) ,books and movies (horror, spiritual and medical stuff) , music (MJ :wub: though I enjoy Ne-yo and Akon too) shopping, spending time with friends and Michaeling :wub:

Oh, I love Michael since I was 10... I fell in love with him during "Beat it" :punk:I don't really have a 'fave era' but I missed his 'curls' lately Heehee :D and those 'gold pants' :tease:
I'm quite a sensitive person with a strong 6th sense... :cheeky:
I love our Christ'OF :wub: THE ULTIMATE MJ tribute artist! He really healed me 'emotionally' as when he walks around like MJ... he gives me a 2nd chance to care and protect Michael... That I miss every single moment... :(

Yep... that's me... I'm crazy about those smilies, can't you tell... :dancin:

Re: Getting to know you!

Hello peeps!
My name is Charlotte, but for some strange reason I chose to go by the name Connie on this site. I'm 20 years old, and live in Norway (a country wich is not many miles away from the North Pole)

I've been registered on this site for two wicked years, but never really been writing anything on the forum, so I think it's about time :)

I became a fan of MJ 10 years ago, and I still can't believe the fact that he's gone. I remember the day he died so clearly. I was at work, and read the newspaper like any other day. As I looked on the front page, the headlines said that MJ had died last night. I refused to believe it, and called other fans in Norway, and they confirmed it was true. My whole world fell apart... it was a very sad moment, and I just started to cry. I was supposed to be on one of his concerts, my first time ever seing him live, my biggest dream of all time, and then that... took me some time to except it, but it's all good now. :)

Iookin' forward to get to know you !
Cioa!

Re: Getting to know you!

Hello to the MJJC community. I'm a member in other MJ forums so I thought i would check this place out. My name is Lori, i will be 52 in April. I'm about 8 months younger than Michael. Although i have admired him since he was a kid just starting out and followed his carrer I have to admit I didn;t become a dedicated fan until after his passing. I am from San Francisco, California (northern part of the state) i'm too far away from Los angeles to go there on a regular basis, i don;t drive and don;t have a budget to stay at accommodations but i hope to go someday. I;m probably five (?) hours from Neverland but a car is needed to get there and would also need a find a place to stay. I;m hoping to find more fans in my area of Northern California particulary in either the Sacramento and or San Francisco area. anyway I plan on talking with some of you in the future. i have made many good friends from arroound the world on some of the MJ forums and hope to make some friends here as well.

Re: Getting to know you!

Hi everyone :) I made a thread but I don't know where it went.. I probably should've just posted here anyway! :p

Anyway, I'm Sonya, 19 turning 20 this year :/ and I'm from Toronto, Ontario! I grew up listening to MJ because my mom was a HUGE fan as a teen (I mean Jheri curl, single glove, imitation jackets, the whole lot haha) but that died down as she got older. She's still a fan though! I guess I'd say that I actively became a fan a month ago. It all started with Who's Lovin' You haha. I just kept playing it on repeat and then I started listening to MJ's solo stuff.

My housemates are going to kill me one of these days because I'm always blasting his music :p

I hope to get to know you all better! I already love this forum :)

I had to react when I read that you love Christof! Last year we watched teh show where he just was the ultimate MJ from the beginning and eventually won the contest. We went to his live show "My name is Michael" and had a blast of a time! Unfortunately he isn't here a lot, which is in Netherlands, but I hope he will be here soon again. I'd love to add some smileys, only haven't found them yet (not activated or so?). I'm a newbie...

Hey,

I'm Martyn from the Derby, UK. I'm 17 years old and currently studying A-Levels at college.

I've been a Michael Jackson fan since around 12 years old (2005). Going by the date, I'm guessing you know which event suddenly brought him to my attention, and therefore his music to my attention.

My other interests include Paramore, Football (Man United!!), Formula One, Cricket and .. well, most sport really.

Anyways, that's about it really, nice to meet you all. :)

Re: Getting to know you!

Hey guys,
my name is Miri and I'm from Munich, Germany. I'm 30 and have been a Michael fan since almost 20 years now.
I've been a member of MJJC since quite some time and I always enjoyed it here. I've been online nearly ever day I was registered but I was mostly just a silent reader. I decided to become a little more active now so I hope I can join all you regular posters! :)
Hm, what else can I tell you about me? I've been working in the music business for a few years but now I'm back to university studying to become a teacher. This whole music business is shiny on the ouside but from the inside it tends to be rather superficial, exploiting and dishonest. So I rather wanted to make a new start and am looking forward now to teaching kids the best I can - I think that's a good way to live and pass on Michael's ideals.
I was lucky to have seen Michael several times. My first time was in Prague, the opening show for the HIstory Tour, then several more HIStory shows and other events in Germany and London, also been to the trial in 2005 twice. I will cherish the moments I was close to him forever!
Anyway, if you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask! :)

I hope, someday, to write and publish a balanced, fair, serious biography about our sweet Michael. But for now....off to the threads!

Wow great topic! And miri im jealous! Im Inge from the netherlands, im a michael fan for 12 years now. I was 13 i believe when i heared him first, because my parents arent a fan, so i had to hear him on tv. I then followed him on the trial and was up reading everynight then what was happening, because its across the world. I always felt far away from him, and now since his death i know im not going to see him live ever. Thats hard sometimes. I was here back in 2005 but it was to hard and i went back here after his death. And feel a little closer so.. I love animals i have a dog and oh im 25.

Hi, I'm Stein, I'm from Norway and I'm 27 years old.

I became an MJ fan late in 2001, around the time "Invincible" was released, and the first two MJ albums I bought were "Invincible" and the just released "Greatest Hits - HIStory" compilation. Soon after that, I bought the other Sony solo albums from "Off the Wall" to "Blood on the Dance Floor" and a couple of VHS tapes. Since then I've been a big MJ fan. :)

Anyway, I came in touch with Michael's music when I was 7 years old during a vacation in Germany.
but I became a real fan in 2001, me & my family had a 6weeks during vacation in the U.S.A.
and as a surprise we went to Madison Square (and I realised on June 25th (I already had bought tickets for TII), that I was at his last big performance.
Since then I'm a huge fan, not only for his music,videoclips, dance but also for the kind, gentle and big hearted man he was.

I've also my own blog, where I upload my wallpapers & post Michael related trivia

I do know a few of MJ's staff and I am willing to help out wherever I can if you have any questions. If i can answer them I will. A lot of us would like to know what he was like and I had the opportunity to find out how truly special he is and i dont put the present tense in by accident.

Some things I dont know but there are things that I am sure people would like to know that would never know unless they ask someone who does know.



I hope I'm able to make new e friends here LOL!

Re: Getting to know you!

Hi I'm Sam,

I'm from the North East of the UK not far from a place called Whitby. I'm 23 and work as a Health Care Assistant while I study to be a counsellor :)

I started listening to Michael in late 2002/early 2003 after coming across "Billie Jean" in a video game (and listening to it over and over and over and... well you get the picture!). Up until that point I only had a few basic memories of Mike; first in 1995 when I was around 8 I was in a school play ("The Pied Piper") and there was a dance routine in it where a bunch of kids dressed as rats danced to "Bad", second I remember watching the "Scream" video when it premiered and I also have a vague memory of flicking through the TV and coming across the tail end of Moonwalker and being really disappointed I'd missed it... but that was it.

Only really knowing 3 or 4 songs and nothing about the man himself I sat down with my mum to watch the living with Michael documentary the night it first aired and that's where everything changed - seeing what a kind, sincere and genuine person Michael was he instantly became my favorite artist, my role model and my source of comfort. I immediately started listening to him every day, buying all the albums and telling anyone who would listen how great he was (and defending him to the hilt) - since then I've never looked back!

Anyway thanks for letting me waffle on for a bit and introduce myself guys :)

First, I can't remember since when I'm a michael's fan... In all my entire life I can't remember another artist that I think about him for 24h/day..

Yes: books, movies (documentary, actually), conversation, laugh, travel (travel all the time = my dream)... but in another hand, I LOVE moments that I can just put my song, turn me off from world...

In November I'll travel to USA (english class). In the same time, to me is gonna be the most lovely moment that's gonna happens this year. Michael Jackson's country. And..how you guys can see...I really NEED english class (sorry for my fool english text).

For now, that's all =)

Hi, I guess I will introduce myself here (this is the right place??). I am "DWsoul" and I was just thinking about Michael and so I came upon here this place. I have been reading through some of the threads and you are a close community of friends, and this is good. I was afraid that would fall apart over the years since his transition. I want to celebrate the life, the activity, and preserve and continue the legacy of the man known as Michael Jackson. It is important that not only does the music and dance go into world history, but also that the mission be preserved and continued, and more importantly, acted upon. I will say this, he is/was a man of peace, but he is a warrior, and I know people who would have done anything possible to see him elected as a president, even if that is something he would not have wanted for himself (oh dear God, the STRESS!!). God bless him, so shy and quiet, but when he speaks, guess what? The WORLD listens! Yes yes I speak in present tense but that is ok. For me, he is NEVER "gone". I do not think that is even a remote possiblity. So, Michael? Here's to you. Your work WILL go on. Your words WILL be listened to, heeded, and acted on (Never forget who is SUPPOSED to be your speechwriter, mister). Are you going to make it back? Are you going to leave it to the people? That's for YOU to decide. And Michael? No matter WHAT happens with me, YOUR heart will go on. It's going to be okay. Remember HER.......
