What is proof?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on May 8, 2012 by exploringthehoax

The reader should be aware, if they aren’t already, that I have never stopped hoaxing. I’m almost ashamed to admit it; I have continued to follow the MJ Death Hoax dutifully on a daily basis online since July 17th 2009 (and offline since June 25, 2009), regardless of my recorded online contributions on this wordpress site. Several are already probably aware of the fact that I began moderating the largest hoax site Michael Jackson Death Hoax Investigators forum last summer, after maintaining a regular presence there since it’s inception. For those who aren’t, it’s very nice to meet you, I am bec.

What I have quit doing is attempting to “prove” the hoax by compiling the supportive evidence that I have uncovered and presenting it in a such a way that might convince an audience of it’s factual nature. I found it largely a lesson in frustration. It was no minor surprise to me that people, in general, will believe what they want to believe, and are largely close minded to avenues they never personally considered prior. In other words, if one didn’t think of it first, the information will be largely and universally rejected regardless of validity.

People need to be ready to consider the radically unconventional. It is a very personal journey towards getting ready to open one’s mind to possibilities that society deems “impossible”. I can now imagine that the Wright Brothers and Nikola Tesla faced similar resistance to their ideas.

The Michael Jackson Death Hoax is fantastical and unprecedented. The only similar historical examples we can site is the Elvis Death Hoax and possibly the Andy Kaufman Death Hoax, and due to their to-date uncompleted status (and in the case of the latter, unlikely) of these hoaxes, they actually more strongly support the invalidity of the MJDH rather then the opposite. This mention aside, the MJDH is a unique animal, and I have routinely found myself in uncharted territory just trying to define it.

But as we press forward, and as the calendar pages fly by, the theory of the MJDH strengthens rather then weakens. Skeptics point to the duration of time as a sign that MJ really is dead, or at very least, is not coming back. The problem with this short sighted and extremely shallow theory is it fails to take into account the heaps of evidence we have collected, compiled, and that still continues to trickle down to us from the shadowy Puppetmaster behind the curtain. I would reasonably expect, after working the hoax (aka ‘hoaxing’) since July of ’09, if this were a fantasy type product of a collective mind, that the “clues” would become more obscure, less frequent, and eventually dry up as we get 1, 2, and now very nearly 3 years from the date of the alleged death. I would also expect that as we Hoaxers become less reclusive, and more visible, that the Jackson Family and/or the Estate would be inclined to take some steps to shut us down. At very least, the Estate ought to make some effort to ask that we cease and desist the use of MJ’s name and image on our heavily traveled and well known website, MJDHI.

By contrast, both the Family and the Estate seem increasingly aware of our online presence and is silent on the subject. I take their silence as approval that we continue.

Now perhaps MJ made it is wish, communicated to the family and the Estate, that a faux-Death Hoax become his legacy after his real earthly passing to give the fans and the public some sort of sense of mystery and intrigue going forward, effectively forever contributing to the Master Showman’s Life of Illusion, he would have a fitting Death of Illusion as well, akin to Elvis, and the cultural phenomenon his passing has become since 1977.

However, this fails to take into account the oddities and irregularities that accompanied Conrad Murray’s mans.laughter case in the fall of 2011. The Jackson Family would have no influence over toys placed in the courtroom during hearings and trial, no influence over the missing letters masquerading as typos in the Prosecution’s power points (that were, incidentally, predicted by a mysterious username on the MJDHI forum months prior), nor would they be able to write and submit a script that included the wording of “alleged victim” during the reading of the verdict at trial’s end. The Jackson Family simply could not have pulled this off as a hoax themselves to honor an actually dead MJ.

The skeptic will press forward and throw the hardball question, if the Jackson Family couldn’t do it, how could an alive MJ have done it?

This is a legitimate question. HOW, does one propose, in the Hoaxer point of view, that Michael Jackson has pulled this off? Well the skeptic will gleefully pounce upon my answer as a sign of weakness of my (our) theory when I say, I haven’t any idea.

I don’t see this as a weakness in the Death Hoax theory however, as I concede my complete inability to be able to knowledgeably or effectively ascertain the legalities of a Death Hoax in the first place. Additionally it should be noted, I lack knowledge and experience in the entertainment field and of moving making in general.

However, it should be noted, that it makes good common sense to presume that one considering a Death Hoax as an entertainment project, would retain the best lawyers that money can buy, prior to launch.

If we are to determine, for lack of a better way to describe this Death Hoax “project”, that the whole thing and all the events of and following June 25th, 2009, publicly known as “The Death of Michael Jackson”, is a sort of real time, live action, reality based movie, it would effectively explain the entire bizarre stage play we have witnessed.

And that is enough for one entry. I’d like to say I will be back, though I don’t know that I can commit to that. I am satisfied we will see an end to this one day, perhaps this year, which will validate what I have said, and wholeheartedly believed since July 17th, 2009. If I have learned anything at all it is this: Thing are not always as they seem when it comes to Michael Jackson. The line between truth and fiction is a flexible membrane.

This is an old post I apparently forgot about in drafts and never published. As it points to clues that all but SCREAM that this is a HOAX that all surfaced just before the 1 year anniversary, I am clicking “publish” on this today, 10/4/10.

Big week coming up and despite my better judgment I’m feeling some sense of anticipation with the 25th approaching.

To recap current events,

  • Katherine Jackson publishes a book about Michael through a website¬† http://www.jacksonsecretvault.com called Never Can Say Goodbye, and the site offers a35% discount coupon code “MJ LIVES”. Incidentally, 35% off of $59.99 results in a savings of $21 (777) Clue: Substantiated
  • LaToya interview the subject of an article in The News Of The World where she drops several clues, some more blatent then Jermaine’s now famous “airport… I mean hospital” slip up. Best head scratchers:

“He’s still here.” she insists. “He’s still with me and he’s just waiting to let the world know.”

“He’d love me to go out with him and see his fans. He loved to play cat and mouse with them.”

“There are lawyers, investigators, a lot of people working on this. It’s taking a long time but it’s still going on.” me in: the death investigation is concluded and has been presented to the DA. Murray has been long charged at this point. How old is this interview?


  • Coke Happiness Machine commercial does not fuzz out jacket bearing the clear insignia “Michael Jackson’s This Is It”. In comparison, all other corporate labels present on clothing of commercial extras is blurred. This is confirmation of a corporate sponsorship between Michael Jackson and Coke of some fashion. Remember, this isn’t AEG. Michael and only Michael owns the right to his image and name. Period. End of discussion.

    All dates are approximate unless noted.

    August 1st: Michael Jackson is listed as director of the Conrad Murray Documentary on IMDB. Apparently this had been added at the end of June but no one noticed. The name was removed after a hoaxer submitted a notice of error to IMDB. By August 7th it was removed.

    August 2nd: A curtain was erected over Michael’s tomb at Forest Lawn. This was visible through the doors to Holly Terrace and the alert was posted on a non-believer’s Facebook account, and verified by multiple sources. Days later TMZ picked up on it and apparently asked FL what was up. FL provided a completely BS excuse (or at least TMZ chose to publish a completely BS statement) that the curtain was erected because some Yoga master’s disciples were coming to visit his grave and it was a heightened security feature to prevent a crazed MJ fan from sneaking in disguised as a yoga nut.¬† Problem with this is that the Yoga master’s tomb isn’t in the same wing as Michael’s and the one is not accessable to the other. So that’s complete bullshit. Curtain is removed a week or so later presumably, at last check no further reports that it is still there.

    August 7th (verified date): Marlon posts on the J5 twitter account, effectively knocking the “Army of Love” tweet, that TS used as his proof that he’s not a fake, off the page. Seems deliberate. No further activity on this account at the time of this post. This Just In: Upon recheck today 8/22/10, enough tweets were deleted from this page so that the “Army of LOVE” tweet is back at the bottom of the page. Now THAT’s super interesting.

    August 8th: The title of upcoming Elvis documentary is announced, “The Final Curtain”. 999 copies of the accompanying box set/book are said to be set for release by Sony.

    August 11th (verified date): TMZ article “Michael Jackson Resurrected by CSD”. CSD subsequently tweets: “New single with MJ, it’s a movie baby!”

    Week of August 16th: Small flurry of MJ related articles published by TMZ. “It’s All Good For Michael Jackson” about All Good Entertainment alleged contract with Frank DiLeo lawsuit officially dismissed in court. “Macaulay Culkin Surfaces… In Public” with accompanying pic of Mack with his brother in London wearing red shirt and black tie, weird considering this guy never gets photog’ed out n about. Seems everyone is in London these days. Also worth noting: “Brittany Murphy’s Mom Shared Bed With Monjack”, using identical rhetoric “shared bed” as the infamous Bashir interview on the same subject. VERY noteworthy is the last line of TMZ’s article: “the report doesn’t suggest sexual contact between the two”… after a headline like that– err… well Michael sure didn’t get the same consideration did he?

    August 19: Widely reported that Katherine and Joe Jackson are getting divorced… but not a peep from TMZ on the subject other then Harvey’s statement “calling BS on this” on TMZ live.

    August 21: Just in, TIAI redirect to blog entry from last year about a reporter camped outside Murray’s supposed Las Vegas home NEVER sees him. Also, Murray’s supposed home is across the street from the former home of Elvis’s doctor, Elias Ghanem. Here’s the blog page link:

    http://thestrippodcast.blogspot.com/2009/08/abcnews-baffling-mj-stakeout.html —-scroll down for the post.

    I find it odd that the reporter remarks that it’s “as if Murray had himself on house arrest”. Remember the YouTube statement? This blog is from around that time. Murray mentions he is afraid to leave his house, use the phone or answer email. Yet here he is living in a gated community where only this reporter and one distant poparottzi are outside (and, apparently neither ever got a pic of him). What’s Murray afraid of? Or was the YouTube statement an elaborate back story explanation for why we were never going to see this guy except under carefully staged appearances? The reporter seems to indicate this is odd behavior, to never address the media camped outside your house. Come to think of it, it is quite strange. We always get footage of the suspect arriving home, car swarmed with reporters, microphones, and flashbulbs; “did you do it? do you have anything to say in your defense? how do you intend to fight these charges?” etc. Or the peaceful 30 second long statement in which Murray could have said “the troot will prevail” to the press to appease them and make them go away. Why the very purposeful decision to put the statement on YouTube and not the network news?

    Wow, that’s tieing into some real retro Murray stuff right there.

    It’s kind of obvious that he’s not in that house. Or wasn’t at that time. Suggests fake address/staged site.

    The Elvis’s doctor lived across the street from Murray thing is EXACTLY like Elvis having lived across the street from Carolwood. That is NOT a coincidence and explains why this address was given as Dr. Murray’s home.

    to be continued.

    Hope all is well with you. I am perplexed by this lull in the hoax but no less confident in Michael’s living status. He’s out there somewhere but what he’s up to I no longer have any guess. Keep your chin up and go about your business, he has the right to shock and surprise us too.

    Hug your hoax friends, they’ve been through a lot with you.

    Court Monday. Will keep an eye out.
