Forest Lawn Project #2 is finished. This is a card (on behalf of MJJC) for Michael. It will be taken to him by one of our members on the 25th June 2018. I will be posting it tomorrow....it's going to travel across the globe, twice....once to our member and then again, to Los Angeles and Forest Lawn.

I really hope that somehow the card and our letters (Project #1) find their way inside Holly Terrace to be placed with MJ.....but if not, it's enough to simply honour his memory, cherish his words and show him our love.

I think it turned out well....I hope everyone likes it. It's a concertina design, red, black and white, with a touch of yellow here and there. There are four panels, with something on each side of each panel, so eight faces in total.

These images show how the card looks standing up. I kind of wish I hadn't put the silver glitter around the outline of the heart, but the sparkly glitter is a nod to Michael's love of bling, of course....and it's the same idea for the red and black sparkly jewels!

I wonder if the truly observant ones can find my obscure use of the number seven everywhere on the card?

Page by page...I didn't receive a lot of messages to go into the card, but that doesn't matter really....this is to Michael from all of us. Anyone who wants to write their own letter for Michael, still has until 17th June to send them to me in a PM.

Mikky Dee!! This is amazing, what a fantastic job! Thank you so, so much you must have spent hours on this! The card is beautiful, I love the pics you took in front the sunflowers, great!

Oh and you used the number seven everywhere on the card thanks to the staples! Smooth ;-)

I love the colors you used, and the little red jewels! All those photos of MJ and the little stickers as well, damn, you're good at this! Nicely done! :)

Oh, I just spotted one little mistake on one of the quotes: ""Together let us create a symphony of hearts, marveling at the miracle of our children & basking in the beauty if love..."

Well, I'm so glad to see this card, it looks so great! (y) :clapping:

Oh, thank you for your kind words. It did take me quite a while, but it was a labour of love. You guessed correctly, about the seven staples....there are seven on each seam. I also have rows of seven jewels, in most cases. I had to use four and/or three when making "2018" and the star shape, but there are seven, everywhere else.

Thank you for letting me know about the mistake in the quote. That was a direct copy and paste from a quote site and then I just chose the font, so there must have been an error in the original write up of it. I have fixed that mistake now and next, I'm off to the post office to mail the card. Woo! Hoo!

P.S. I've decided that I DO like the glitter, now. I just took the card with me, out into the sun, on my way to the post office and it sparkled so beautifully! I can only imagine what it will look like on the grass, in the sunlight, at Forest Lawn. ~smile/cry~

Mikky Dee, this card looks fantastic! Thank you for all the time and effort that you have put into these projects - it's really great and you're right - I'm sure it will take pride of place at Forest Lawn. I wish MJ could see all of the fans that still appreciate him after all this time...well, maybe he does! (I like to think so!) : )

Awww, this is really beautiful. Sorry I didn't get my message to you in time. I was trying to visualize this card when you first posted about it, but I didn't visualize this-it's gorgeous.
One of the things I really love about looking at Forest Lawn pix (besides admiring the roses and other floral displays) are all the HOMEMADE cards and letters that they lay on the lawn out there. Especially because they're homemade. I could look at those for hours.
I love the fact that Michael appreciated things like that-since they really come from the heart.

Thank you so much for your kind words and your support, barbee! Remember, if you want to write a letter to Michael, or even just a simple message, there's still time to PM it to me, so I can pass it on. There's almost two weeks still to go, before that deadline. I don't sit and read everyone's letters, because I think they're private, between themselves and Michael....I just copy/paste and send.

Re: Messages to Michael From MJJC Members - June 25th 2018

:hello:

Project #1 - If you'd like to write something longer than a card message, there is still time to send your letters for Michael to me, so that I can pass them on to our lovely travelling member. Please make sure that your letters reach me (via PM) before the 17th June, so that I can forward them straight away, for printing and packing.

This is a wonderful offer, so I urge people to avail themselves of it. It's a great chance for people all over the world who can't be at Forest Lawn on 25th June, to do something beautiful and heartfelt for MJ. I have written and left letters at Forest Lawn for him, myself, on a couple of occasions and I find it to be very cathartic.

Thank you, all.


Only seven days left!!

MJJC has been contacted by a representative of a German press agency for Reuters. She wants to interview an administrator/moderator or member of our community, about how fans will be remembering Michael and celebrating his life and legacy, on what would have been his 60th birthday milestone, later this month. I have agreed to speak with her, via e-mail, on behalf of MJJC and all of its members and am currently awaiting her response, with questions that she would like answered. I'm not sure, yet, what questions will be asked, but I guess they'll be fairly general.

If there is anything individual members would like to say, which I can pass onto her, during the interview - about how you feel about Michael and anything you are taking part in, organising, or doing, this year, to celebrate - then please post it in this thread. I will endeavour to put your input/thoughts to best use in my e-mail reply and the subsequent written piece, which I believe will appear online.

I will post updates and developments, in this thread, over the coming days.

Update on the MJJC Letter to MJ project and the MJJC Card project (Projects 1 and 2)

All of the letters, drawings and notes for Michael that were contributed by fans for the 25th June and the card that I created on behalf of MJJC, definitely made it to Forest Lawn.

The letters were printed up, placed in a folder and taken in person by our MJJC traveller to Forest Lawn, on the actual day of 25th June, 2018. I believe that she took photos of the folder placed in its position on the grass, so I will endeavour to gain access to these and post them here.

The card that I made, on behalf of MJJC (pictured on page 2 of this thread) unfortunately did not make it to our pilgrim's house, before she left for the USA. It was sitting in her mail box, while she was already in Los Angeles, due to a miscalculation/miscommunication of the correct deadline date and time, allowing for time zones, etc. However, she was able to link up with some of her American-based friends who visit Forest Lawn regularly and she was able to send the card to them, once she had returned home. As I understand it, they made sure that the card found its way to Holly Terrace, when they next visited. So even though the journey took a little longer than first planned for our card, it did make it, in the end.

I will try to get photos, or some kind of definitive update about this as well and post it here, as originally promised. Thank you, everyone, for your initial interest and for your trust and patience.

Hello again, everyone.

I am going to speak with the press representative via e-mail (I have edited my first post to reflect this change) tomorrow, or the day after. She decided to conduct the interview that way, rather than over the phone, due to the tight deadline she has and the fact that she and I are in very different time zones.

These are her questions for me:

1) How will MJJC members be celebrating Michael's upcoming 60th birthday?

2) If Michael was still with us, what would his life and career look like today?

3) Michael has such a huge fan base all over the world - what makes him still so loved and adored by so many people?

4) What is his biggest legacy?

5) How do you feel about Michael's family and his children - about the way in which they keep his legacy alive?

Here's the article written by the German press agency correspondent, about why MJ fans still love Michael so much and what they will be doing to celebrate his 60th birthday. It mentions MJJC!! It's been translated from German, by Google Chrome, so I hope it's a faithful translation. I actually gave the journalist a LOT of information to use, when I answered her questions, but she didn't quote everything. I have an MJ fan friend who is German and she just messaged me to say that this article is all over the newspapers in Germany!! So exciting. LOL.

Michael Jackson's life is celebrated worldwide
From dpa Wednesday, 29.08.2018, 00:04

The news of his death shocked the world: In June 2009, Michael Jackson died at the age of 50 years. This year, the King of Pop would have been 60 years old. His fans want to celebrate, for them he lives on.

Los Angeles (AP) - For fans of the "King of Pop", this should be just a small damper - just before the centenary of their idol - for decades, Michael Jackson's "thriller" was hailed as the most successful album so far.

Now the album "Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975)" put the US rocker The Eagles in the first place. "Thriller" has been sold or streamed online since its release in 1982, about 33 million times, the Eagles album since 1976, more than 38 million times, as the US Association of Music Industry RIAA recently announced.

But the cult of Jackson, who would have turned 60 on Wednesday (August 29), continues nine years after his death. Around the world, the anniversary is celebrated, on August 29, 1958, Jackson was born in Gary, Indiana. Jackson's children, Paris and Prince and his brothers Jackie, Tito and Marlon are expected to attend the "Michael Jackson: The Diamond Celebration" in Las Vegas. Accompanying the fan party, the Canadian " Cirque du Soleil " will perform its Michael Jackson show "One" in the Casino City.

In Berlin, the musical show "Beat It!" Celebrates its premiere to coincide with the birthday of pop idol. Jackson's estate administrators are planning a musical on New York's Broadway in 2020. As a "birthday" tribute to the creator of songs such as "Thriller", "Bad", "Billie Jean", "Dangerous" and "HIStory" TV documentaries and fan events are planned.

"He was the greatest of all time and there will never be anyone like him again," says a fan, Michele D., in an e-mailed dpa interview. The 60-year-old Australian co-administers Jackson's MJJ Community fan site. Fans from all over the world posted photos, videos and music on Michael's birthday and shared social networks to commemorate the life and heritage of the "King of Pop," says the teacher, who became a fan in 1969. "I saw his performance of 'Who's Loving You' live on the Ed Sullivan show with the" Jackson 5 "and that was it, I was hooked!"

If Jackson was still alive - and if he had given his planned comeback concerts in London in 2009 - his career would certainly have started rolling again, Michele believes. Today, he would surely help his three children succeed....managing their careers, advising them, helping them navigate their way and achieve their goals, whilst still allowing them to find their own feet and spread their own wings. They would each be making him very proud of the way they are living their lives.

They actually follow in their father's footsteps. Daughter Paris is an actress, model and singer. When grandmother Katherine Jackson recently attended a concert of her band The Sunflowers, the average Jackson shoot posted a picture of the band with her grandmother, on Instagram. Prince Jackson has already produced music videos, the youngest son nicknamed Blanket still goes to school.

He was only seven years old when his father died in June 2009 at the age of fifty on a deadly mix of medications. In mid-July of that year his comeback tour in London should have begun. The King of Pop's Estate is still earning millions annually. For many years he leads the list of the best earning deceased celebrities. According to forecasts by the business magazine "Forbes" in 2017, it was about $ 750 million from the sale of the music rights catalog and shows about Jackson's staying power.

Jackson himself had awarded the title of "King of Pop". His moonwalk dance moves, songs, videos and stage spectacles turned the pop world upside down in the early 1980s. He was a children's idol, which made the entire family to stars, already as a tot he became the lead singer of the Jackson 5.

Later, the musician lamented in TV interviews about his "lost childhood". In tears he once said: "I always wanted to be just a normal little boy. But fate has wanted it differently. "His father, Jackson said," never told me that he loves me. " In 1993, in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, he related violence in the family. Patriarch Joseph Jackson, who put his kids to the test, died in June at the age of 89.

In 2010, Jackson was posthumously honored with a Grammy for his life's work, during his lifetime he received 13 of the coveted music trophies. In 1984, he was the first artist to clear eight prizes in one night.

Later, the mega star's image got scratchy: canceled concerts, collapses on stage, bizarre appearances: instead of music, "Whacko *****" produced headlines that had to do with his looks. The beauty treatments he said made him look like an artifact. Little was known about the two marriages, first with Lisa-Marie Presley, then with nurse Debbie Rowe, the mother of his two older children.

In California, Jackson lived on the vast Neverland estate, named after the Neverland of his beloved fairytale character Peter Pan. In 1993, a 13-year-old boy claimed to have been the victim of sexual assault in Jackson's bedroom. The star denied this consistently, agreed with the family of the boy on a settlement in the millions. Similar allegations made by a teenager in 2005 led to a "trial of the century" that ended in Jackson's triumphant acquittal on all charges.

Ten weeks after his death, Jackson was buried in a mausoleum in the Forest Lawn cemetery in Glendale near Los Angeles. His fans are loyal to him. "What I value most about him is his ability to love and his benevolent heart," says Michele D. "He will live on forever through his children, his fans and his music."

Administration Announcement


Please DO NOT post threads about "having doubts" regarding Michael's innocence. If you are having doubts, purely because of recent events, then this is definitely not the site for you. This site is dedicated to Michael Jackson and his memory, NOT to rewriting his history and his truth with lies, misrepresentations and tabloid trash.

New threads expressing doubts are likely to be deleted. Threads asking questions that have already been answered are likely to be deleted, or merged into other existing threads. Threads asking to discuss what has already been discussed countless times are likely to be deleted, or merged into other existing threads. Please read our archives, where there are hundreds of threads discussing all allegations and trials, ad infinitum. These archives include ALL the FACTUAL EVIDENCE that you need to see. Please also check via an advanced search, for threads that may answer your questions and help you with what you wish to know.

We do not want new members and guests seeing threads where people are expressing "doubts". That is not the face we want to present to the world.

What we want to do in these trying times, is focus on developing a POSITIVE vibe. We want to continue to celebrate Michael, right through this rough patch and beyond. This is the tenth anniversary year of Michael's passing. We will remember the MAN and the MUSIC and we will remember the JOY he gave to millions, all over the globe. We will remember his HEART and the way his heart spoke to ours. We will lift him up and protect his name and his legacy.

We trust that all of our members will support us, in this affirmation of why we are all here.


For Michael
With L.O.V.E.

Maybe you could pin a thread at the top of the "Trials and Tribulations" forum with a link to https://themichaeljacksonallegations.com/ so that new fans can find all the information and court transcripts easily.

In my opinion is better close the site for 48 hours than lost something.
You could create a poll? to vote and that ...
