Or they wear a sweater and refer to you as THEEEEOOOOOO. It absolutely does not matter if thats your given name or not.

Oh, yeah, except for when they're like..a cop (or wait am I confusing this with the character that guy played in die hard) that continually gets harassed by jaleel white.

He's a cop in both, I think. (I don't know. I've never seen the original Die Hard. Yes, this is possible.)

Explosions, dumb one liners, shitty forgotten villains...

It tries to be Bond and fails really badly

I never got much of a Bond vibe off of it. It's more like, "cop has a bad day that keeps getting progressively worse and has to do all sorts of crazy shit to deal with the increasingly more trying circumstances."








And explosions.

Yeah, well regardless it just bores me. I can see why people like it though, mindless explosions.

Die Hard 2 is..if you saw 1 you saw the sequel

Quote:

That was the best one. 2 was pretty forgettable. 3 was...jeremy irons sort of just being a ripoff of the villain in die hard 1. 4 sucked (just overall), even though the actor who was playing the villain was good in deadwood and is on justified (but again the entire thing sucked so bad it counteracted that)

Some notes.

- Jackson got the first nose job from an accident, yes. But the subsequent ones were from relentless mockery from his family, and his eventual want of looking like Peter Pan. His father (of course) once remarked "Your nose is so damned wide, you surely didn't get it from me!" He was also mocked for his acne, something that he suffered from throughout his life, which also caused him to get more surgeries to alter his skin.

- Jackson had vitiligo. This is somewhat like albinism, except it only affects patches of skin. This is why he started wearing the sequined glove, the vitiligo manifested itself on his hand first. He did get his skin bleached, but only because the vitiligo had started spreading to his face. Besides, him and Janet both were bleaching their skin starting in the 70s with a product that was heavily advertised to african-americans. The vitiligo was still present on other parts of his body--he didn't get his whole body bleached. This is why he was always fully clothed (long sleeved shirts, long pants, shoes) after a certain point.

- Johnnie Cochran told Jackson to "pay off" the Chandlers, which was probably the biggest mistake Jackson could have made.

- After Jackson was burned severely in the Pepsi commercial taping, he started his road to prescription drug addiction, which lasted the rest of his life. He was on OxyContin, Propofol, and numerous others. He had a few collapsed veins from so many doses of propofol (it's an anesthetic that is for people that don't get much sleep, yet want to feel "awake"--mostly prescribed to narcoleptics)

- His family were terrible, money-grubbing, sickos. His father and brother Jermaine were the worst offenders, but his mother was no saint. They would use his mother to bleed money from Jackson, because Jackson loved his mother deeply and would do anything for her, but spent majority of his life avoiding and running from the rest of his family.

- Sadly, Jackson seemed to plan his death, to a point. His family attempted an intervention at his 30th anniversary party, to which he said "Why bother, I'll be dead soon anyway." He claimed to fear old age, because he saw his friend Fred Astaire get debilitating pain in his later years. He said "I want to go out like Elvis, not Brando." He did.

- Jackson had whatever disorder it is when you spend more money than you have--I forget the name of it. He was constantly, and I mean constantly, buying antiques, Disney stuff, paintings, whatever.

Joseph Merrick's skeleton?

Well he was thinner than both.

He could have said that if the sequined glove doesn't fit, they must acquit.

Yeah my understanding was he was looking into it or something. I was under the impression there was no full skeleton and the body had been sort of dismembered post-mortem for research (I have no source for this and cannot remember where I got that idea)

I went and checked because I was like "By fred astaire...wait, fred astaire-fred astaire or a different one?" and I guess fred astaire died in '87 or so, so I suppose it's plausible they would have been acquaintances maybe.

Also I'm not surprised fred astaire ended up with medical problems considering some of what he did. Not, like, drugs or anything (maybe he did, I dunno that much about fred astaire, I've seen singing in the rain I think) but just some of the routines or whatever.

No, it was just a joke his publicists/agents made up to get more attention.

The skeleton has always been at the Royal London Hospital, and Jackson never made any actual plans to buy it.

Yeah, they hung out at Astaire's house. Jackson learned a lot of his dancing moves from him.

....Yeah I can see that then. Particularly the second part, I mean if not personally then probably he would have been watching the old movies growing up and sort of internalizing stuff.

Or considering how much of a crazy martinette his dad was with the jackson 5 he probably was sort of drilled into memorizing similar steps because the dad had seen those movies.

Actually Joe Jackson would go to other concerts and write down moves/lyrics/and mannerisms to steal.

Seriousky, he did this
