Lincoln Center Honors Michael Jackson on August 30th, 2009

Tuesday, August 25, 2009 — by Wow Jones

Groundbreaking Pop Star Michael Jackson is the subject of a one-of-a-kind presentation this week at New York City’s Lincoln Center.

Controversial NY Press Film Critic (and current New York Film Critics Circle Chairman) Armond White is dedicating an entire evening to the work of Michael Jackson in the music video genre. His “KEEP MOVING: Michael Jackson’s Video Art” will be held on Sunday, August 30, 2009 at 6 pm at Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theater.

In this 90 Minute Presentation, esteemed critic and author Armond White will take an in-depth look at Michael Jackson’s innovations in the music video genre.

White notes, “When Hollywood didn’t come calling, Michael Jackson responded with a series of short musical films that displayed his affection for the pop tradition. From the popular Thriller to the GREAT Black or White and other landmarks, Michael Jackson—the ultimate performer-as-auteur—changed the way the world responds to cinema.”

In the past Armond White has offered interpretations of a number of music videos by acclaimed filmmakers (Mark Romanek, Marcus Nispel, Hype Williams, Ben Stokes, Spike Jonze, Joseph Kahn, etc), musicians and singers. This is the second time he has focused an entire presentation to one pop artist/music video subject. Armond White had music video presentation devoted to Michael Jackson in January of 2008.

Armond White will also be signing copies of his new book, “KEEP MOVING: The Michael Jackson Chronicles”.

  1. VindicateMJNow (Facebook group)

    VindicateMJNow is a collaborative movement of like minds to share- openly and logically- valid reasons why Michael Jackson (MJ) was incapable of the heinous crimes leveled against him in 1993 and again in 2003. A website is in-the-works and will be launched very soon. You will be notified personally of the unveiling!

    Trust us, you will NOT find any other Michael Jackson forum exactly like this one. We may be MJ fans, but we’re NOT fanatics. We’re comfortable talking about the “whole” Michael Jackson, ‘the imperfect human being’, as well as the perfected performer. We clearly understand he may have been viewed as ‘God-like’ but he was not ‘God’. He was human, with all of his insecurities, his joys, his fears, his inhumane strengths, his contradictions, his unconditional love, his good and not-so-good decisions. In other words, he was no different than you or me.

    In other words: MJ…smooth… but not a criminal.

    This is exactly what we hope we can convince others – on the fence, or otherwise, – to see.
    We have no time limit on this movement’s mission. Throughout this process we aim to bring like minds of all walks of life here. With that in mind, we’re tossing out a ‘very long’ welcome mat to those who can provide the most credible explanations of his innocence, specifically sharing of thoughts by the famous- or infamous who knew him best. This would include his friends, his professional colleagues, his staff, his family, the children who knew and adored him, the parents of these same children or anyone who has seen the whites of Michael Jackson’s eyes beyond a fleeting moment in a crowd. And, of course, his adoring supporters, like many of us… who remain convinced of his innocence.

    NOTE: Here’s what VindicateMJNow is NOT:
    1. A place to spew angry comments about anyone or any ‘thing’ that you believe may have killed him or led to his ultimate demise on June 25, 2009. And, YES, this means blaming the media who went after his ‘strangeness’ with a vengeance. Grieve the loss of him. We all do. Just don’t bring it here. It’s too late to place blame. Let’s spend our energies ‘making-it-right-for-Mike’ by finally implementing what should have been done years ago: alternative, logical, clinical and professional views that help explain personal ‘differences’ between the ‘everyday’ person’s view of ‘normal’ and MJ’s.

    2. A place to tell us why you think he was guilty. Don’t even go there. We know all of the reasons you think this. VindicateMJNow is designed to present the other side of this equation- offer a different perspective. We may never change your mind; and that’s OK. Just don’t try to change ours.

    3. A place to sell something (not otherwise approved by the forum administrators).

    4. A place to argue. Will not be tolerated. Debating in a civil manner, yes. Anything less, no.

    5. Unmoderated posts. To ensure appropriate language and process is followed, all posts will be moderated- trust us- this is for your protection, too.
