<br />Good video (except for the awful crowds, which are as good a reason as any for MJ not to come back, unless of course he enjoyed and misses the crazed adoration, but that's a whole other topic!) ... with some camera angles and shots I haven't seen before. Always good to hear him say " when I say this is it, it really means this is it, because, umm .... hahaha!"<br /><br />I don't know though how it's supposed to convince those who don't believe it was MJ at the O2.<br />
<br />^^^ Just to be clear - I don't need convincing! I'm with you on this. Definitely Michael!<br />
<br />Oh Echo, this is one of my favourite subjects! And no 'bitter dispute' from me! You think it didn't seem authentic? Well, I'd say that's because it wasn't! MJ was not announcing a series of concerts ... he was announcing 'IT'! The big thing he'd been planning and hinting at for years. "You ain't seen nothing yet" "The best is yet to come" How many times did he say, in that announcement, that "This is it", as if to really hammer it home, and like I said in my previous post, that deep, knowing laugh just speaks volumes for me! Watch that bit again (around 4:40-4:50) and then tell me he didn't know exactly what he was doing and what was coming!<br /><br />I'm glad you're looking at this again with an open mind. I think hoaxers (in general, not you specifically!) over the years have, in many cases, been making things far more complicated than they really are. <br /><br />@Dreams, I must also add with watching this again this week, I've sensed that real excitement about him, that you mention, which I hadn't quite appreciated before. That makes me happy ... and also sad, for if things have not gone according to his plan in the five years since.<br />
<br />Hi Curls and Dreams, <br /><br />I have read your dissertations and am giving them thought. Thank you. <br /><br />Question...<br /><br />Is it safe for me to assume that you both are in agreement that something was in fact "off" about MJ's energy and gate on the day of the announcement? Your replies do not indicate that my assumption that MJ was "off" is out of order. <br /><br />Please continue to guide me along :bearhug:<br />
I think it was Richard Blackie (in latex mask and gloves maybe?) announcing at O2 Arena Press Conference, it was his voice, smile and his accent, especially when he said "Thank you all" the "O"sound is the same. Listen to his voice in Maya Newell documentary.
Pay attention to his coffin collection ;/
R B life story is very interesting :) I guess after his "death" in 2006 he changed his identity.
And have look at google search engine results when you type his name .....
Never heard of Richard Blackie.... You have a link?
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
Here is a link to his documentary by Maya Newell.
And here is another interesting link.
I am far from convinced. The guy doesn't look enough like Michael and died in 2006, so I see issues with him doing anything at all in 2009.
Starting to think O2 dude is Michael, but high as a kite or something or some alter.
