Yahooccultism: Meresamun Jackson (UPDATE)

Front-page news:
The Pharaoh of Pop doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as King of Pop, but visitors to Chicago’s Field Museum could swear that’s Jacko’s face on a 3,000-year-old Egyptian bust.
The spitting image limestone sculpture has been on display at the museum since 1988, but recently started drawing attention because of its likeness to Jacko --- complete with disfigured nose. -Yahoo

Well, enough of that. Here's some classic psychedelic Soul, featuring the late Minnie Ripperton....



UPDATE: If you guys are still jonesing for more MJ weirdness, check out Michael Luckman's book Alien Rock, which has a chapter on Jacko's obsession with UFOs and ET:
Michael Jackson is building an airport - for aliens.
The eccentric singer reportedly came up with the idea after dreaming he met little green men from outer space. Jackson wants to set up the extra terrestrial landing strip in the Nevada desert, according to new book 'Alien Rock: The Rock 'n' Roll ET Connection.'Author Michael C Luckman claims Jackson even wants to film the first landing at the alleged base.
The writer also claims the pop star - who is said to be a huge fan of sci-fi movies like 'ET' and 'Men in Black' - once believed he was an alien himself. He claimed: "Mr Eccentricity (Jackson) revealed in November 2001 that he felt he was from another planet." Michael identified the planet as 'A Capricious Anomaly in the Sea of Space' and said it was located 'just beyond our solar system'.
"Earlier this month, Luckman claimed the troubled star, who last month was acquitted of child abuse, had discussed having his remains cryogenically preserved so he could be brought back to life in the future.

  2. Here is my theory.

    Michael Jackson bought a time machine, faked his death, and went back in time to live in Ancient Egypt.

    This is why no one can remember seeing the statue before, even though it's been in the museum's collection since 1988. It's been around for centuries but didn't exist until a few weeks ago.

    Maybe I should try and get some sleep now.

  3. If yahoo just put that on their site, tell them welcome to the internet.

    Check out this new story from "unreality magazine"
    '17 Actors Who Played Themselves in Movies'
    http://unrealitymag.com/index.php/2009/08/05/17-actors-who-played-themselves-in-movies/

    we can all go back to sleep now cause 'The Daily Telegraph' says "Mystery of rocky Mars 'monolith' solved, scientists say" and in about 100 words they put this story right to sleep, thank you "real" news.

  8. I think you'll find many people walking around, the physical twin productions of Egyptian royalty past, but that's just me.

    Rotary Connection?!?! A man after my own heart.

  9. Chris,
    I LIVE in Chicago and have frequented the Field Museum and I just do not remember ever seen this stature.
    Anywho, here's a link about Michael Jackson's connection to psychic phenomenon and ghosts:

  11. I saw this too. I actually thought of you and your site. I made a note to pass it along to you because I thought it was secret sun material--but I wasn't quick enough.

    Here is a nice blurb about MJ's dancing from the New Yorker:

    I'm still thinking about him and what it means that "Peter Pan" is now dead and what it means that the man who invented the Moon Walk died right before the anniversary of the moon walk.

  12. You can take the person out of the "other" planet, but you can't take the otherness out of 'em. I think we're all from another planet, from different states nevertheless.

    My second to last post came about because of linking to something you put up recently, Chris.

    I like the Minnie connection.

  14. Medias sure become more and more surreal,don't they?It takes a strong sens of humor not to become a complete nihilist or a paranoid.

  15. Panda- Yeah, I first heard of them on Technicolor Web of Sound, which I recommend for fans of 60s Psych.

    Nick- I like that theory!

    C- Awesome links! If I have time I'll put together some random 17 syncs for a post.

    Dyna/JR- Yeah- I love that sound.

    Anony 1044- I've seen that before- Hilarious!

    Ashlee- Maybe all of us have a little Egyptian in us. It was a world center for thousands of years.

    Johnny- Cool link- MJ left a lot of energy breadcrumb trails in his wake. Cheers.

    Anony 1004-Sun Ra! Space is the place- maybe he's up there now.

    Douglas- MJ probably was one of the greatest dancers there ever was- certainly in a pop context.

    David- That's really the crux of AAT- our sense of alienation.

    Anony 221- Ha! Yma Sumac- the Nina Hagen of her day!

    Justin- Yeah- the British media is really letting loose with the UFO stuff. Which of course makes me instantly suspicious.

    Anony 111- See above comment!
