Catch the Michael Jackson adding a coaster bit?

Friday, February 7, 2003 4:24 AM
I don't know if anyone here caught the Michael Jackson interview last night (can you say "Nuts?"), but in it, he gave a tour of his "Neverland" ranch. A part of it showed the amusement park, complete with Carousel, Pirate ship, Scrambler, Swings, Train etc etc etc.

However while there, he mentioned he was building a rollercoaster for it next, then a waterpark for the other side of the grounds.

So this begs the question, if Wacko Jacko adds a coaster, what type do you think it should be? What should it be called? What elements should it have?

My guess? A steel invertigo called "Face/Lift", or how about a really twisted Premier spagetti bowl coaster called, what else, "Thriller?"

This is meant as a fun, tongue in cheek post, so think lively folks!

It should be one without a station, so he never has to get off.

I think that is part of the problem, I don't think Michael has ever been able to get off. Hence the Tatum O'Neil story. That was a visual I could have done without!

How could I not?

It is like passing a wreck on the interstate, or when you see ugly people making out in a park queue line.... you don't want to watch, you know it will turn your stomach... but you just can't help but look ;-)

Yeah, I heard him tell the kid he was adding a rollercoaster and a waterpark.

I picture it being a wooden twister.

Maybe he should install a B&M vertical drop coaster with holding brake and lots of theming.

The idea is as follows:
1)Build huge "set" that looks like the inside of a house complete with second story balcony and stairs.
2)The lift will come up the steps then curve around to the banister, start to drop then stop like Oblivion. This will act as Mr. Jackson dangling the baby over the railing.
3)Then the car will drop and come back for a nice, semi-embarasing, comfortable landing that everyone will remember for a long time but won't talk about in a week or two.

Well, I suspect it will be a kiddie coaster. Probably one he can lay down on with the children.

Well, why not look at the coaster as an investment....get Stan Checketts to build a ride with twice the acceleration of Hypersonic to peel the face back...;). It certainly could save on all the cosmetic surgery that he claims he's not having...;)

Shaggy and Tigger,

I don't care if the couple making out in line is ugly or not...either way it's disgusting...

I just can't decide who should be locked up first.....him for sleeping with little kids, or the parents who would let their kids do so!

I think we shoudl give him that roller coaster at "Duff Gardens" Remember that one?

Let's get Arrow to build him an Arrowbatic with breaks at the bottom of every drop. That way he'll bust his face every time he goes down a drop.

I watched the show and thought it was a *fascinating* interview.

My opinion: MJ has arrested development and has never matured beyond that of a pre-teen. I don't approve of a 44-yr-old man allowing kids to sleep in his bedroom but MJ doesn't see himself as a 44-yr-old man, he see's himself as a kid. But I certainly don't condone that behavior. Where are the parents of those children?

Watching the show I didn't get any kind of sexual vibe from him at all. Zero, zip. Given his stunted development, the fact that as a teen he turned down sex with girlfriend Tatum O'Neal because he wasn't ready, the fact that *none* of his kids have been conceived through sex, and the fact that at an early age his brothers would tell him that he should ignore them having sex while in the same hotel room or same bed its no wonder that even at 44 he's still in that adolescent "sex is icky" stage.

When you take into account the way he was treated by his father and what Joseph Jackson would say about the way Michael looked [especially comments about his nose] its easy to see why he doesn't like his face and has tried to change it so much. He has most definitely lied about the amount of plastic surgery he's had but the man lives in Neverland....literally *and* mentally.

Remember, only "normal" people think they're crazy. People who really are crazy can't tell the difference.

Moosh - who thinks the coaster will be something portable, most likely a mouse.

Some people on here are MJ fans and don't appreciate the bashing. He may have made some mistakes, but we're all human, and there's nothing wrong with being a kid at heart. I can't believe some of you....

I don't know if you would call Moosh's observations bashing though. I think he's right on target.

Darth,

That is what is great about America. The freedom of speech...If I don't like someone, I am allowed to say so.

Besides - there's more "wrong" with him than just "being a kid at heart"...

They're bashing if you listen to him and appreciate what he's done for our society.

Go ahead and say what you wish but be careful because you don't know the whole story, and neither do I.

I'm a fan of MJ and while I have issues with a lot of things that I saw in the documentary, I feel like he's a victim. To bash him with comments like 'nuts' and 'freak' only show your own ignorance and lack of understanding plus they perpetuate hatred. You do it to make yourself feel more superior - what a joke!
