Just a quick real time, Eclipse update. Watching Michael Jackson’s memorial. Major montage footage of Michael’s life that ended in MJ in a crucified form in extended pose. Michael as christ, sacrificed on the altar of public perception. Al Sharpton codifies it in his eulogy. Congresswoman, Sheila Jackson Lee, from Houston and Martin Luther King’s daughter continue to work with the theme. She just introduced a bill that they will introduce on the floor of the house, “Resolution 600″ to honor Michael Jackson as a “world humanitarian” for all time. This is the secular canonization on 7/7. Michael moon walks towards ascension, ‘The King Of Pop,” eclipsing “The Prince Of Peace.”

I’d like to thank Brooke Shields for quoting Exupery’s, “Little Prince” at length, thus publicly validating the mytho-poetic connection that I pointed out in an earlier post.

More later.

Of course, the last song HAS to be “We Are The World” and we are bombarded with universal symbols of all religion. None of this happens by chance.

The last image of the memorial was a couple being interviewed about being there. The guy kept referring to the memorial as a series of performances, like he was at a concert. It typifies the perception of the individual immersed in the society of the spectacle.

Finally, Michael Jackson totally dominates Jesus in Google results. 60 million to 9.5 million. Looks like Michael is even bigger than The Beatles now,

The King of Pop And The Prince Of Cherry Poppin’.

More, more Michael Jackson, MJ 24/7. The media is now officially feasting on the emaciated corpse of his legacy. We’re talking about a news cycle that will be long and deep. Get used to it. Court battles, rumor, intrigue, innuendo, biographies, TV specials, you name it. Michael Jackson’s death and life will hang like a skin-bleached specter over lives throughout the summer and beyond (side note, the MJ suicide count is up to ten now).

But there will be a backlash when Uranus goes retrograde and opposes Saturn in Virgo one last time. People will have had enough and the public debate will then turn to the ethics of piling on the King Of Pop. Once Uranus slams it into reverse and Saturn plods forward towards their fated conjunction, the media will cannibalize themselves. They’ll eat until there’s nothing left and then they’ll eat each other. Now that’s going to be some good viewing.

Meanwhile, The Big O admin will put the petal to the metal on health care reform, the clean waters act, the anti-hate speech bill, etc, as quickly as possible to capitalize on the feeding frenzy of Michael and who knows who else. By the way, has anyone seen Joe Biden lately?

I did my post on Michael and I’ll do one more unless it’s vital that I stay with the topic of his life and death.

I’m fascinated with the parallels between Michael and Prince. In fact Michael even named a son after the purple one. Michael and Prince occupy the esoteric duality of Mercury. Michael being the Virgo and Prince, Gemini. Both had tempestuous relationships with their respective fathers and both rose to fame at roughly the same time, but they couldn’t have been more different. Read the rest of this entry »
