Michael Jackson, Super Culturist !

Michael Jackson’s passing has changed our world forever. He took all of the insanity of the world – the phony, the commercial – and distilled it. He strove to embody our nation’s, nay our world’s, sense of beauty. He personified all the trash that we swallow daily and gave us a target to mock. Now that he has gone, we are alone, profoundly alone.

The world no longer has hope. Around the world, the one thing all humans shared was a love for Michael. He was popular in Korea, Nigeria and India. Now that he is gone, nothing positive can unite us. The world is forever splintered. If the people of Iran wanted us to understand them, they’d suspend the protests for a day in honor of Michael. As it is there is no hope of world unity now. In despair, I keep expecting him to reappear in the sky as our redeemer. This is existentialism.

Farrah Fawcett died of anal cancer. Flesh destroyed her. Michael transcended flesh. He incarnated and morphed into a surreal sense of beauty. Farrah, God bless her, was an icon that became human. Her tragic downfall brought her down to earth. Michael was an icon that became more of an icon. He was not humanized. Lisa Presley once said, “Michael is an artist. He changes his face for us everyday.” Michael was a great artist. He embodied our dreams. He died for our sins.

Some people will say that his wonderland ranch represented predation. To me, his ranch represented our collective sense of innocence in a violent, sexualized world. It was the silhouette of our existence. We asked for a priest; we basked in his faithfulness to Bubbles. We asked him to not grow up. He gave us our childhood back. He tried to restore our innocence.

The world is in denial. The BBC, CNN, nor MTV will admit just how crappy his post – Jackson Five music was. That would reveal that all of us who drink the cool-aid of pop culture are insane. Michael Jackson was a prophet. He revealed our generation to us as John Lennon had reflected the prior generation. And, so he is gone. We have a big hole where he revenged himself by gouging at our collective hearts. We could laugh at his insanity. But we no longer have anywhere to listen to our tears.

RIP Michael Jackson. RIP Farrah Fawcett.

Kobe Bryant-phil Jackson ‘feud’ Just Small Bump In Lakers’ Road To Attempting To Defend Nba Title

On the other side of the country, Lakers fans are getting a taste of that dip right now. The Lakers are marred in the middle of a stretch where they’ve lost four of their last six games, punctuated by an embarrassing 104-85 loss — which could have been a lot worse — on Sunday night to a last-place Grizzlies squad. That loss was the worst of the bunch, a stretch in which the four losses have come by an average of over 17 points per contest.
To make matters worse, there appears to be a little in-house bickering between two of the league’s marquee divas — Phil Jackson and Kobe Bryant.
Jackson spoke very candidly about Bryant and his style of play following the loss to the Grizzlies.
“Kobe had to screw up the game and start energizing the team by going one-on-one,” Jackson said. “That takes the rest of the guys out and as a consequence, that didn’t bring us back in.”
Well, alright.
Whether or not Jackson meant the words to cut deep, or whether he was just making an observation, the message was clear. The Lakers need to play better as a team.
But before Celtics fans go crossing off the Lakers on their list of potential roadblocks for an 18th world title, they must remember that this is just a bump in the road for the Lake Show.
The Lakers, like the Celtics, are a veteran club. They know that while it would be nice to secure things like home-court advantage (like last year’s NBA Finals), they are still dangerous enough to make noise in the playoffs just by getting there.
When it comes down to it, it’s all about weathering the storm. The Lakers know that better than anyone. There’s a reason they’ve won back-to-back NBA titles. There’s a reason they’ve been to the finals the last three years.
And there’s a reason that Jackson and Bryant are widely considered as the best or one of the best at what they do.
They both know how to win. Not only that, they’ve feuded before, and they’ve been able to put things behind them.
When the Lakers get to the playoffs, they’ll be among the favorites again. No team can match up with their playoff experience. Their offense, a grind-it-out half-court system centered around the famed triangle offense is at its best when the Lakers can wear down teams in long series.
Teams with athletic point guards will still give them fits (Rajon Rondo, anyone?), but it will be easier for the Lakers to grind out wins, utilizing the killer touch of Bryant along with one of the better frontcourts in the game.
Whether or not Celtics fans want to admit it or not, the Lakers are a lot like the C’s. They’ll go through midseason swoons, but they’ll be among the big boys standing in the end when it’s all said and done. With both teams, the peaks of success will continue to tower over the relatively meaningless valleys of failure that try and trip them up during the grind that is the NBA regular season.

A Palm Desert & San Diego California Broadcast Lawyer Disrobes the Cbs Janet Jackson Super Bowl Half

In 2004 as people watched with great interest the Super Bowl halftime show in towns across America, in San Diego, California, in Orange County, CA, in Los Angeles, La Jolla, Hollywood, Del Mar, Pacific Beach, Carlsbad, Malibu, Oceanside, San Marcos, Vista and Escondido or the cities of Huntington Beach, Westminster, Buena Park, Anaheim, Santa Ana, Costa Mesa, Irvine, Newport Beach, Corona del Mar, Laguna Beach, and Laguna Hills, Buena Park, Temecula, Indian Wells, La Quinta, or Palm Springs, unless they taped the game, they missed a split second of exposed skin by Janet Jackson.

 

It wasn’t until the press and people played it back in slow motion, that they saw what people would later claim horrified them. One of Janet Jackson’s upper body supports holding in one of her chest assets had fallen away revealing a bit of something only previously shown in more detail on cable TV. And unless you were in a coma in the firestorm that followed, you had the term “wardrobe malfunction” ingrained into your vocabulary. Even attorneys and lawyers began using the term when they appeared late at court. 

 

Here it is 2008. Children have not had to have years of counseling despite the initial claims by conservative groups that they would, and the incident is still being litigated. In July 2008, the Third Circuit vacated an FCC fine of $ 550,000 assessed against CBS for the nine-sixteenths of a second when Janet Jackson’s breast was exposed during the halftime show of Super Bowl XXXVIII in February 2004 and remanded the case back to the FCC. However, the court made it clear that the FCC cannot retroactively punish CBS and had better not try.

 

The court held that the FCC improperly departed from its prior policy of allowing a fleeting image and that this departure was arbitrary and capricious.

What the ruling did not, but should of said, was that the FCC was so pressured into its fine by conservatives, including those in the FCC and the executive branch of the current administration, that it acted like idiots.

 

First Amendment and Constitutional Lawyers such as myself have applauded the decision especially when myself and others received moronic calls from persons claiming that they or their family members suffered immeasurable harm when they watched recordings of the halftime show over and over and over.

 

Conservative groups were less pleased with the ruling. However, the court ruled that, without proof that CBS knew beforehand that some indecency was about to occur, the FCC could not find that CBS was liable, especially in view of the fact that Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake were independent contractors and not CBS employees.

 

To prevent the FCC from now simply providing a rational explanation for disallowing unintentional fleeting and indecent images and putting broadcasters on notice of this policy so they can fine broadcasters in the future and make it impossible to ever again dare to show a live performance on TV just as they have not dared to since the fine was imposed, the court said that unintentional broadcasts of alleged fleeting indecent images may not be punished absent a showing of scienter, i.e. a knowing or reckless violation of indecency law. If a broadcaster endeavors to exercise proper control but fails to prevent unscripted indecency, it will not have acted with scienter if its actions were negligent rather than reckless.

 

Thus the FCC’s attempt to establish a draconian power to fine broadcasters off the air and out of business for broadcasting unintentional fleeting images, a power which has for the past few years and which would forever absolutely chill our First Amendment rights, by this conservative administration, is over.

 

Perhaps with the next administration, whichever party gets into office, the idiots at the FCC who suffered their own brain malfunction and imposed this fine can be booted out into the street and be remanded to read the Constitution.

Postseason baseball is nothing new for Nationals' Jackson
"The thing about postseason baseball is the game can speed up real quick," Jackson said. "You have to kind of control the pace and control the tempo, and having experience in that it definitely helps when you get in those situations. Being able to slow …
