Michael Jackson died!
« on: June 26, 2009, 01:38:16 AM »
He died today at 3:15 (or 6:15 Easter Time). Interestingly, I feel a bit sad, but I'm not actually afraid for him. He's in good Hands.

(It's on Fox News, but I'm not sure how many people have that, so I found this website.)

I have been watching the news for the past couple of hours. I feel a sense of sadness as well, I enjoyed his music since I was a young girl.  Someone said to me, "I hope he was right with God before he died". I did not say anything. I know he is in good hands too Tim B. :grin:

Well, that's something I didn't know.  Michael Jackson had Synesthesia:

Hadn't listened to any of his stuff since the early 80s, unless some stuff he did with Paul McCartney was later.  Had I known he was a Synesthete, I'd of paid more attention over the years.

Woah, that actually sounds like a really interesting "neurologically based phenomenon"! Some people, when they hear sounds, have taste sensory sensations! Like the letter "f" causes this one man to taste sherbet! mmm! lol

Yeah, I'm one of the ones that has only one bodily sensation, or in my case it's that way; for me:

sound has taste, touch, smell, sight
sight has taste, touch, smell, sound
taste has sound, touch, smell, sight
touch has sound, taste, smell, sight
smell has sound, sight, taste, and touch

but my case may be a whole lot more advanced than most synesthetes.  Just means I have sensory overload sometimes and withdraw in order to pray, but often just to have a quiet space to defrag my mental drive.  It's not a handicap of any kind.  Often it allows the greatest creativity in the world's eyes because the synesthete isn't in the "typical" perfectionist kick, but they're wanting things that sound, look, taste, touch, and smell right to them; for they themselves. 

I've not been enough of a student of Mozart to be sure if there's corroborating biographical "hints" along these lines, but Mozart's music is such a piece of art that is well pleasing to absolutely all of the senses and even in moments of all of the senses being aware all at once, that I have a sneaky suspicion that his music came out of a mind that was likely as synesthetic as mine.  Not a note out of place, even to a synesthete!  No degree of logic, education, training, I.Q., or anything else is going to produce music that's such a pleasure to either a synesthete that's simply got every molecule of both sets of neurons working -- those in the cranium and the 50,000+ neurons behind the heart -- or with those like idiot savants that have one half of the brain working at 100% mental capacity, productivity, activity, etc. 

And when a synesthete is able to appreciate the art of an artist that's not a synesthete, then you probably got one of the better reviews of your art that you could possibly get, EVER, if not THE absolute best critical review you could have ever gotten, 'cause they're looking at something whether musically or with painting or photography, cooking, design, fashion, or whatever from many, if not all, levels all at once.

I do not know if it is the same thing, probably not,  but I used to get deeply depressed over certain patterns of music and it does not matter what song and I can't really describe the patterns.  it was never about the song or a memory association with the song.

But if there was a certain combination of cymbals, drums beats and keyboard I would just get depressed instantly and no thoughts would enter my mind. 

For a while I stopped listening to any music due to that because I could not predict it other than remembering a song it occured from.   Interesting thing now, and I simply give credit to God, is that I can't remember one song that happened with and am listening to music quite frequently now with no reoccurance.

 I'm glad I have not experienced that for a long time.

It makes me very sad--especially the number of parasites who fed off this creative man in his life and will continue their feeding frenzy after his death. :sigh:

"Man In The Mirror"

I'm Gonna Make A Change,
For Once In My Life
It's Gonna Feel Real Good,
Gonna Make A Difference
Gonna Make It Right . . .

As I, Turn Up The Collar On My
Favourite Winter Coat
This Wind Is Blowin' My Mind
I See The Kids In The Street,
With Not Enough To Eat
Who Am I, To Be Blind?
Pretending Not To See
Their Needs
A Summer's Disregard,
A Broken Bottle Top
And A One Man's Soul
They Follow Each Other On
The Wind Ya' Know
'Cause They Got Nowhere
To Go
That's Why I Want You To
Know

I'm Starting With The Man In
The Mirror
I'm Asking Him To Change
His Ways
And No Message Could Have
Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World
A Better Place
(If You Wanna Make The
World A Better Place)
Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change
(Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change)


I've Been A Victim Of A Selfish
Kind Of Love
It's Time That I Realize
That There Are Some With No
Home, Not A Nickel To Loan
Could It Be Really Me,
Pretending That They're Not
Alone?

A Willow Deeply Scarred,
Somebody's Broken Heart
And A Washed-Out Dream
(Washed-Out Dream)
They Follow The Pattern Of
The Wind, Ya' See
Cause They Got No Place
To Be
That's Why I'm Starting With
Me
(Starting With Me!)

I'm Starting With The Man In
The Mirror
(Ooh!)
I'm Asking Him To Change
His Ways
(Ooh!)
And No Message Could Have
Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World
A Better Place
(If You Wanna Make The
World A Better Place)
Take A Look At Yourself And
Then Make A Change
(Take A Look At Yourself And
Then Make A Change)



23Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror 24and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.

A pure counter tenor voice [equivalent to mezzo soprano], --you won't hear a voice like this again in our lifetimes.   

Have you seen my childhood?

You and I must make a pact, we must bring salvation back
Where there is love, I'll be there

I'll reach out my hand to you, I'll have faith in all you do
Just call my name and I'll be there

I'll be there to comfort you,
Build my world of dreams around you, I'm so glad that I found you
I'll be there with a love that's strong
I'll be your strength, I'll keep holding on

Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter
Togetherness, well that's all I'm after
Whenever you need me, I'll be there
I'll be there to protect you, with an unselfish love that respects you
Just call my name and I'll be there

I had a girlfriend once, and she wrote a song, called it "Getting
Ready to LIVE!" 

Re Michael Jackson, I loved to see him "dance" .......There was
never ONE that could top him on that MOONWALK!~!!

The words to these songs are beautiful, Molly.  I am glad you posted
them. 

If one has an ear to hear, they can hear a lot of "Spirit" concerning
Michael Jackson.

I guess that's what LOVE does to you.  Jesus must be full of it!

Thank you, RLV.  I was beginning to feel a little lonely in this thread.  Here are some lyrics to one of his most famous songs which raised about 8 million dollars for famine relief efforts in Africa.  There's a reason why millions of people all over the world love this man.  How he ever got so many strong egos to share the limelight with others in this production is a miracle all by itself. lol




"We are the world"


There comes a time
When we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
And it's time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all

We can't go on
Pretending  day by day
That someone, somewhere will soon make a change
We are all a part of
God's great big family
And the truth, you know love is all we need

[Chorus]
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me


When you're down and out
There seems no hope at all
But if you just believe
There's no way we can fall
Well, well, well, well, let us realize
That a change will only come
When we stand together as one

[Chorus]
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

Acts 20:35
In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.' "

I grew up on Michael, his music was a big part of our community. I think Man in the Mirror is one of my favorites....I have so many favs, I can't really pick one..

May he RIP, he is in good hands. :) ...

"In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe."

 

 
"The meaning of life is contained in every single expression of life. It is present in the infinity of forms and phenomena that exist in all of creation."

 

 
"I wake up from dreams and go "Wow, put this down on paper." The whole thing is strange. You hear the words, everything is right there in front of your face "

 

 
"If you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with."

 

 
"And my goal in life is to give to the world what I was lucky to receive: the ecstasy of divine union through my music and my dance."

 

 
--Michael Jackson

Same here, I felt the Lord. It seemed to be a Christian memorial service if you ask me.
