The Face of Sad

June 25, 2009, Michael Jackson died at the age of 50, after suffering heart failure at his home in Beverly Hills. The eighth child of the Jackson family, he debuted with his brothers as a member of The Jackson 5 in 1964. Jackson is credited for transforming the music video into an art form and a promotional tool, four of his solo albums are among the world's best-selling records: Off the Wall (1979), Bad (1987), Dangerous (1991) and HIStory (1995), while his 1982 Thriller is the world's best-selling record of all time with sales of over 50 million. via thisdayinmusic.com

These days it's hard to think of Michael Jackson without remembering the deformed homunculus that was barely recognizable as a human being. The man who had mutilated himself with years of surgical addiction.  

But in 1982 he was just good looking young guy with a nose job.  And an unnaturally high voice that hadn't changed since the Jackson 5 cartoon show was on the air every Saturday morning. 

Michael Jackson was not a GenXer. And yet he was a big part of our generation. The Boomers were already looking down on us the year Thriller came out. We were constantly getting told how much better the music had been twelve years ago. That their music had "meant something".

Uh-huh.  Just for the record Janice Joplin's caterwauling was like claws on our spines.  Jimmy Hendrix wasn't a genius, he was a freak of nature who could get sounds out of his guitar that nobody else could. And Beatles are the most overrated boy band in history.

Consequently there was certain perverse pleasure in turning Michael Jackson (who was clearly and obviously a commercial product) into a mega-ultra star. And one who was waaaaaay bigger than anybody ever was in sixties.

Thriller: 46 million copies sold

Sgt Pepper's Lonely Whateves: 13 million copies sold

Thriller was the first time that Gen X really made it's presence felt in the marketplace and it was on the Richter scale. This was just about the time that the Boomers started to hit age 35.  And that is the age that it first really hits you,  "It really is all going to end someday no matter how hard I hit the gym."  For a generation as youth obsessed as the Boomers this was a devastating discovery.  This  was (not coincidently) about the time that the Boomers started labeling Gen X cynical and shallow.  Which was another way of saying, "you have completely rejected out values."

They were correct on that point.  We had. 

Jackson's voice was probably more curse than gift.    A doctor in France claimed that Jackson's parents had treated his severe acne with cyproterone acetate, it is not legal for use in the US.  It is a known chemical castrator. Another possibility is Kallmann Syndrome, which is treatable if it's detected early but that can be tricky and testing may not have been possible at all given Joe Jackson's temperament regarding his son'  s masculinity.

One thing is for certain, Michael Jackson's voice could cover three octaves and grown men shouldn't be able to do that.

As for the allegations of child molestation...well no smoke without fire. He certainly paid off his accusers on a regular basis. Although, I suspect he wasn't capable of having an erection, the records that have leaked appear to corroborate that.  So hopefully there was an upward limit to the damage he could do to boys.

The monster success of Thriller appears to have drastically unmoored him from reality.  Another problem he seems to have had was a loathing of his own identity.  Instead of going transex he pioneered trans-race.  That's only a guess on my part but it would explain the surgical addiction as well as his choice of sperm donor for his children.

Which brings us to the Face of Sad.



Michael Jackson's "daughter" Paris

Behold a Millennial princess.  Tatted out eight ways from Sunday.  Piercings pretty much everywhere (*shudder*).  Multiple suicide attempts in High School (or so she claims).  And an identity dissonance about as bad as her "father's".  I suppose I shouldn't bother with the quotation marks.  The evidence is as obvious to our eyes as it is to her's.  The problem for this nineteen year old is that she was raised in an SJW values bubble.  She is a believer in Privilege Theory with Whites being the fount of all evil, yet she is herself White despite the fact that 95% of her family is black.

And the saddest part is that the SJWs are cheering her self-destruction every step of the way.

I remember Paris Jackson before she started mutilating herself and you could see the great potential beauty. She was going to grow up to be a very beautiful woman. But in this generation every terrible idea a girl has is encouraged. Not too long ago older women would have taken her aside and explained grow your hair out, Never ever get tattoos only sluts get tattoos etc. If you look close you can still see the remnants of beauty that could have been if there had been controls in this girl's life.

If a girl's father dies just before she hit's puberty, she is going to have Daddy issues all her life.

But this kid is turning that reasonably normal reaction into a Death Cult.

This creepy thing is from her instagram account.

That Instagram post is beyond disturbing, paris is chasing her father's ghost and eventually she'll catch him. We are watching a slow motion suicide.

As an aside girls with daddy issues can be a good investment. Sure they are a little unstable but they are relatively desperate for male attention and more submissive then most girls.
