My wife asked me why I wanted it but I bought the Bucharest DVD.
For one dollar, it is worth watching for just laughs.
A movie.
What I can't understand is why you wouldn't want a copy for $1.00.
I'm certainly not lying about it, Jermaine.
But have it your way.
At least, I made the offer and thought of doing something nice.
And I thank you..but you should not pretend you bought it for laughs..I believe you like MJ.

I don't hate him but a DVD is not a music CD.

So it is totally different because I can watch it.

One dollar is a bargain.

If it really sucks, it is not a big deal because it was only $1.00.

I usually crack up every time I see the clown so it is worth it.

I wouldn't pay full price though.

It is like when I watched "Living With Michael Jackson"

I laughed so hard, he had me in tears rolling.

Hopefully, "Live In Bucharest" will be hilariously funny.

For a buck, how can I go wrong?

I want to see if he is miming through the performance.

I know that his nose was gone, had llama eyes and a wide clown mouth.

Should keep me laughing.

"Living With Michael Jackson" was so entertaining.

I couldn't believe how bad it made him look at the time.

And it had nothing to do with Martin Bashir.

MJ holding hands with Gavin.
MJ saying that there was nothing wrong with sleeping with children.
MJ dangling Blanket off a ledge of a building.
MJ climbing a tree and sitting in it.
MJ singing to The Jolly Green Giant.

I mean, what a way to destroy a fading career.

What was the point of making a fool of himself on national TV?

People still were suspicious of him because of Jordan Chandler.

MJ ready hammered it home when he agreed to do that special.

It was a train wreck.

Somehow, I knew you'd put the blame strictly on Martin Bashir.

Everything I saw was Michael Jackson's own doing.

He had to know that he and Gavin were going to make front page.

It was bad.

Why he thought it would help him is beyond my understanding.

Yeah, Bashmir confronted him at the end of the special...

But the only person that made him look bad was himself.

It was all down hill from there, Jermaine.

So, what? He was still a drug-addicted pedophile.

Don't be jealous of Liz. Not only was she blessed with good looks, she had a very shrewd business brain. She didn't get all that jewelery for being stupid.
Whoooosh!

I was being facetious.

There was nothing to take out of context. Michael made himself look bad, and Bashir just filmed it. When Michael had his rebuttal shown on television, he made himself look even worse.

Everybody knows that the greedy Jacksons made done deals.

The reality it just kills you that he made so much money just as it kills you that Liz made a fortune too.

Jealousy is a curse. Liz had an eye for baubles and always got what she wanted. That's why MJ loved her.

One dolla for the clown in concert in Bucharest.

I laugh.

It couldn't have been more hilarious.

A DVD concert of MJ at The Dollar Tree.

Well worth the dollar just by telling you floons about it.

Very amusing.

Still doesn't take him off number 2 on the list. All it has to take is one song to lay that golden egg.

No one ever said she was stupid, but spreading her legs for eight husbands was very helpful in getting most of that jewelry.

Katherine Jackson and MJ's estate made all kinds of deals in 2009.

Money that came in from an overload of projects from his death.

It doesn't mean that they actually sold all of it.

Mama Jacky just got her money up front, didn't she?

It is contacts, betting on future sales which could go either way.

Apparently, many over estimated MJ's stock in the marketplace.

That is why you see a 120 million dollar drop from the year before.

In the case of Elvis, his estate holds steady every year.

It is because Elvis has been dead for 35 years and is not current.

Still, it is an impressive showing because Elvis is long term.

The #1 and #2 spots are both held by people recently deceased.

You don't know what will happen in the years to come, right?

The mere fact that the old hag dethroned MJ is proof of it.

Elvis was the top earning dead celebrity for 15 years straight.

His income never has shown a dramatic drop which is a good thing.

They don't over flood the marketplace with Elvis.

Why would they want to?
