Obvious, immature, completely unfair . . . . So of course, I laughed out loud.

Yes, I agree that it's unfair. I mean, anyone can see that Michael Jackson is an innocent, unfairly persecuted genius.

It's a plain as the nose ...on...his...

Nevermind.

To play devil's advocate here: what happened to "innocent until proven guilty"?

ashbury: "To play devil's advocate here: what happened to "innocent until proven guilty"?"

That's a legal distinction for the courts. As private citizens we can think he is guilty of everything up to and including the Kennedy assassination and being the silent partner financing Can't Stop the Music.

Reverend, I agree, that it is a distinction for the courts. But it also spills into the private citizenry IF he actually is innocent. It smells like vigilantee-ism at the worst and smells like slander at best and is simply an all-around shitty thing to say about anybody. IF they are innocent.

Innocent until molested.

Too bad Amazon doesn't have a link to recommend stuff from, say, Home Depot. Then we could all recommend torches & pitchforks as well.

Okay, I'm sorry, could you repeat that one there for me?

"Sodomy and the Pirate Tradition: English Sea Rovers in the Seventeenth-Century Caribbean?"

Someone wrote this? Someone researched this?

XQUZYPHYR, someone was swabbing the poop decks, if you know what I mean.

You know, anyone with a friggin' MacCauly Culkin shrine in his home is guilty of something.

Everyone knows things like this get flushed as soon as the hosting site gets wind of it. Did nobody take a snap???

XQUZYPHYR - I almost took a class when I was at college that would have required reading that book.

I've read parts of Sodomy and the Pirate Tradition. It's pretty cool.

Bah. Nobody had the sense to recommend Gary Glitter?

Part of the list is also available at Gawker.

XQUZYPHYR--I attended a panel at the 1990 Modern Language Association that featured scholarly papers on male/male pirate sex.

That was the same convention, I believe, at which film theorist Tania Modleski talked about the hot-dog tree in Pee-Wee's Big Adventure as a "phallosyncretic symbol".

Looks like they've now started on another Jackson album. No doubt this list will soon be deleted, too. (And this one, which recommends "plastic surgery disasters".)
posted by Zonker at 2:33 PM on December 6, 2003


I can appreciate the feelings of people who wish Michael Jackson to remain unmolested...
