Michael Jackson Saves the Music

10/20/2009 3:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There is yet another Michael Jackson auction going down -- but this time, the people hocking Jacko's swag aren't trying to pocket the cash for themselves.

Michael Jackson

Alexander Autographs is hosting a massive auction to benefit the VH1 Save the Music Foundation this week in Connecticut -- and even though they're not putting any hair clippings on the block, you can still get some really cool stuff.

Signed guitars, wicked leather jackets and even a self-portrait could be yours ... if the price is right.

So' AEG did pay dr. Murray, as reported at Court Court-yard Live Press Conference, filmed by TMZ, but' Press Conference reports have no link to follow!

Attorney Next thing you know, the $150,000 payment was stopped and his two clinics were shut down from death threats from Michael Jackson fans. He had no money.

Hi sue & candy girl!
sue, I think that is MJ. I have also heard about all these body doubles but no, I think that is MJ. The faces look the same to me. His face btw does look 'skeletal'. I really hate to say that but it's his face, not so much his body, that looks so THIN to me. MJ's face is VERY distinct anyway, how do you find someone with a face that looks so much like MJ's? I've watched those clips several times & really think it's him. I'm not sure I really buy all this 'body double' stuff anyway.

I've been putting in a lot of hours at work as well. Christmas is coming! Money, money ,money! My daughter has had several back to back school projects too that I've been helping with as well. I MISSED EVERYBODY!

66. He may be too weak right now to do so but is he right-handed? Can he write to communicate with you & is he 'making sense'?

Posted at 10:22AM on Oct 20th 2009 by janalal4

You know, I didn't even think of that. I was only allowed 5 minutes with him because he has his family there and the total is 15 minutes so we take turns. I will ask the nurse about it tonight when I go up there, that would be awesome if he could communicate; he is right handed and I KNOW he comprehends what is being said to him, he just can't talk. Great idea, thank you!!!

HERE'S THE TICKET!! GET HIM A 'MAGIC SLATE'. Those things are wonderful for CVA patients! Get the biggest one you can find but something that's not too bulky for him to manage.

Where could I find that? A toy store? A book store? Any idea? Is that like a "dry erase" board?

Same concept as a dry erase board but the 'pencil' is attached to the board(less frustrating for them than constantly searching for a marker), they are usually a bit less bulky, no eraser required. These are generally thinner than a piece of cardboard & have a layer of film overlying the actual board itself which you actually write on. Then to erase, you simply take the film & lift it up & the writing is gone. Lay it back down on the board & you have a fresh writing surface. It's easier for them to manage with one hand compared to fumbling with markers, eraser, etc.

I would think that a toy store would be the best place to start. There are also specialty medical suppyl stores that stock special accessories designed specifically for CVA patients. Check with his insurance company as much of this is covered. A magic slate is an excellent item to start out with though.

Duh    

Thank you for the info, Janala4! I will get one this afternoon before I go to the hospital tonight.

OK, I am supposed to be working so I am going to bow out for a bit; I will be keeping an eye on you guys though so you better behave. (smirk) It's hard to transcribe and be on my home puter at the same time, my fingers can't be both places at once - wouldn't that be nice LOL! If you need me holler, like I said I will be lurking, just have to get some work done. Good to see you again, glad you are okay!

Not offending me! It is well known I don't like the Jacksons except for a couple of the girls. I was withholding judgment on Katherine because Michael loved her so much, but when I learned she made him pay her 200,000 or 250,000 bucks to make a rebuttal video for his trial, I WAS PISSED! WHAT MOTHER DOES THAT? So now she is in my doghouse too.

"...a psychiatrist's wet dream". Stop it! No, don't stop, that was HILARIOUS! Not to mention, so true. Why stop? I just LOVE those 'off-color' remarks. This family is a complete 'HOOT'! Such comic relief from the tragedy of it all!

"He's not able to work," she said, noting that he's stalked by paparazzi and has received death threats from Jackson fanatics who blame him for "killing" their hero. "He can't go to the office ... He has to run errands at night. It's almost like he's under house arrest."

Get a junker to hit that car, whip-lash, no Insurance, no
Registration Plates, no Smog Inspection, only a MD sticker! No
Police, afraid to rush the two Michael Jackson cops from milking the over-time, before California registration, sales tax for the Texas car must be paid' almost 10% of blue-book value, then car can be Insured, California can watch video and mail ticket if a CHIP has a second.

Totally fine! Just busy & the 'you-know-who's' were grating on my nerves. I poked my head in a couple of times but kept missing you somehow. I don't know how you get any work done at all frankly with two screens going:) I wouldn't! If you need any more tips for you 'lovey' just ask! I'm a bit rusty with CVA's but if I don't know it, I will FIND it! I feel for you & have seen so many family's dealing with the frustrations so anything at all I can do to help just 'holla'! Sending much 'love & prayers' for both of you.

I checked out the auction and they have some great stuff - also an Elvis guitar and two Hendrix guitars, and about 700 other things for sale. I'm after the Grateful Dead.

I'm planning on going to the sale - I've been to Mohegan before and it's a great place to hang out...and drink for free (as long as you gamble!)
