Did Michael Jackson Really Sell Neverland?

Well, all that we know right now is that a $35 million deed was sold to Sycamore Valley Ranch LCC. A deed is a transaction between both parties, bound by a mutual contract.

What's more, according to theNew York Times and many other reports, Michael owns half of this company with Tom Barrack. The head of Colony Investments(which also owns a few Los Vegas hotels). The two of them are believed to have founded the real estate company just this past July. And I would not be surprised if this were the case. Here is a quote from Michael himself...

"I am pleased with recent developments involving Neverland Ranch and I am in discussions with Colony and Tom Barrack with regard to the Ranch and other matters that would allow me to focus on the future."

Since the property is said to be worth over $100 million(not to mention the state of the economy), I sincerely doubt he sold the hole nine yards over for a measly $35 million. Now if that deed was given to an interest he partly owns, then that would be justifiable. Since 50% still belongs to him. Previous debts would be paid off. While the rest of the $70 million would be split between Tom Barrack & Michael Jackson.

In a year or two from now, he could buy the land and settle their again. By all that he's been through, I think he only views it as an asset nowadays.

More will be added shortly.:)

Little Susie

Some believe this to be based on a true story. However, it's been more or less confirmed as a fictional tale. Partly Inspired by Gottfried Helnwein's artwork. Who is famous for his emotional imagery-Especially of children(in fact, Michael used his Lichtkind(Child of Light) painting to depict this song on The History Vol. 1 Booklet).

 In this tragic tale, Little Susie took her own life because of gross indifference to her well-being. One by one, her folks passed away. Father abandoned them, leaving mother and gram-father to wither in the grave.

 Years later, she was grafted into an unloving family. Though she was adopted, they did not take her in. Loneliness seeped it's cold dead fingers upon her tender heart. Until she couldn't bear it much longer. Although it was technically an accident. She subconsciously threw herself down the stairs to escape the pain.

 Although the story is clearly fictitious, Michael was proving a point. "Neglect can kill. Like a knife …

Invincible Session Outtakes

Here is an exhaustive list of all Invincible tracks that Either was sent to production hell or never quite made the list. According to Rodney Jerkins, there are a heck of a lot of finished outtakes from this session. Enough to fill multiple albums! So I lied. This is by no means an exhaustive list.:)

Fall Again Demo-I knew something spectacular was missing from his latest album! I Just couldn't quite lay my finger on it. I'm glad Michael took time away to be with his sick son. But this track fits in this session like a jigsaw piece. This beautiful Romantic Ballad was co-produced by Walter Afanasieff and Michael Jackson.

Beautiful Girl Demo-I can just see this on a soundtrack for a Romantic movie. Claiming top chart positions worldwide. But for unknown reasons, it was cut at the last moment.

 Michael Jackson and Tito both collaborated on an instrumental take which was also shelved.

The Way You Love Me-Sounds very much like something McCartney would do. With the elegant piano a…
