Michael Jackson's Carnival of Death

Come one. Come all. Come children of all ages to the Michael Jackson Carnival of Death. See the insensitive photographer who blocks my shot. See the stressed-out UCLA Traffic guy plead with an unsympathetic driver to move along. See the scolding UCLA Traffic gal who directs cars and pedestrians while wearing high heels. See the gigantic herd surge from the medical center plaza to the Reagan building entrance in hope of a live update. Did they think Michael was going to come moonwalking out of the building alive? See the grieving women sitting on the shoulders of sturdy men. Both hold memorial signs, but only one wears a bikini top. See the white Michael Jackson impersonator who can't dance. See the sad sexy French woman with a sign of her devotion. She learned English just to understand the words of Michael’s songs. See the female entertainer from Cincinnati who preaches repentance and adoration of Michael. See the group of fans singing and dancing to Michael’s music. See the memorial candles. See the fans that followed Michael around the world. See the press. See the photo opportunities. See the exhibitionists. See the madness. All for the love of Michael, their dear departed dead hero.

Michael Jackson's Carnival of Death

The "King of Pop" has died. Michael Jackson is dead at fifty. This was the scene outside UCLA Reagan Medical Center in Westwood, Los Angeles, California on Thursday, June 25, 2009 where Michael Jackson's body was taken in a failed effort to revive him. His fans flocked to the scene where they exhibited their grief, their joy, their love for their fallen hero. As would be expected, the press, both professional and amateur, showed up to record the event. The crowd consisted of several colorful and eccentric personalities eager to share themselves with posterity.

POE NOTE: Michael Jackson was a serious fan of Poe. A few years ago, he announced he was going to produce a film bio of Poe starring himself.

RIPFarrah Fawcett 1947-2009 RIP

Farrah Fawcett (February 2, 1947 – June 25, 2009) was an American actress. A multiple Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominee, Fawcett rose to international fame when she first appeared as private investigator Jill Munroe in the TV series Charlie's Angels in 1976. Fawcett later appeared off-Broadway to the approval of critics and in highly rated television movies in roles often challenging (The Burning Bed, Nazi Hunter: The Beate Klarsfeld Story, Poor Little Rich Girl: The Barbara Hutton Story, Margaret Bourke-White) and sometimes unsympathetic (Small Sacrifices). Fawcett was also a pop culture figure whose hairstyle was emulated by millions of young women and whose poster sales broke records, making her an international sex symbol in the 1970s and 1980s. While her impact was particularly strong on the teens of the 1970s, her appeal spreads over multiple generations.

Last Titanic Survivor Dies

New Poe Forward Dead Girl:

Millvina Dean

February 2, 1912 - May 31, 2009

RIP

Born in London on Feb. 2, 1912, Elizabeth Gladys "Millvina" Dean spent most of her life in the English seaside town of Southampton, Titanic's home port. She never married, and worked as a secretary, retiring in 1972 from an engineering firm. She moved into a nursing home after breaking her hip about three years ago. She had to sell several Titanic mementoes to raise funds, prompting her friends to set up a fund to subsidize her nursing home fees. Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, the stars of the film "Titanic," pledged their support to the fund last month.

For most of her life Dean had no contact with Titanic enthusiasts and rarely spoke about the disaster. Dean said she had seen the 1958 film "A Night to Remember" with other survivors, but found it so upsetting that she declined to watch any other attempts to put the disaster on celluloid, including the 1997 blockbuster "Titanic."

Bloody Babs was Gassed in '55

Barbara Graham

June 26, 1923 - June 3, 1955

RIP

Barbara Graham was an American criminal and convicted murderess who was executed in the gas chamber along with two accomplices, Jack Santo and Emmett Perkins. Nicknamed "Bloody Babs" by the press, Graham was the third woman in California to die by gas.

Barbara Graham was portrayed by Susan Hayward in I WANT TO LIVE! (1958) and Lindsay Wagner in the 1983 TV remake. Hayward won an Academy Award for Best Actress.

Barbara Graham's guilt or innocence is still debated to this day. But even Susan Hayward said Babs probably did it. Full Details:

Baudelaire's BE DRUNK Read in Honor of Patti Smith

BE DRUNK
Charles Baudelaire

You have to be always drunk. That's all there is to it--it's the only way. So as not to feel the horrible burden of time that breaks your back and bends you to the earth, you have to be continually drunk.

But on what? Wine, poetry or virtue, as you wish. But be drunk.

And if sometimes, on the steps of a palace or the green grass of a ditch, in the mournful solitude of your room, you wake again, drunkenness already diminishing or gone, ask the wind, the wave, the star, the bird, the clock, everything that is flying, everything that is groaning, everything that is rolling, everything that is singing, everything that is speaking. . .ask what time it is and wind, wave, star, bird, clock will answer you:

"It is time to be drunk! So as not to be the martyred slaves of time, be drunk, be continually drunk! On wine, on poetry or on virtue as you wish."

Lizzie Borden

July 19, 1860 - June 1, 1927

RIP

On this anniversary of her death, Poe Forward announces her inclusion in our Historical Dead Girls Rogue's Gallery. I think she did it. I think her sister helped her out. I think the old man was molesting them from their childhoods on. They finally put a stop to it. They gave it to the old lady for letting the old bastard get away with it all those years. She's a Poe Forward Dead Girl now.
