Michael Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009)

Michael Jackson was so much more than an eclectic and consummate entertainer. He was an extremely generous humanitarian and would no doubt like for people to remember his love and genuine care and concern for children.

“HEAL THE KIDS” SPEECH at OXFORD UNIVERSITY 2001(Excerpt):


As you all know, our two countries broke from each other over what Thomas Jefferson referred to as “certain inalienable rights”. And while we Americans and British might dispute the justice of his claims, what has never been in dispute is that children have certain inalienable rights, and the gradual erosion of those rights has led to scores of children worldwide being denied the joys and security of childhood. I would therefore like to propose tonight that we install in every home a Children’s Universal Bill of Rights, the tenets of which are:



1. The right to be loved without having to earn it


2. The right to be protected, without having to deserve it


3. The right to feel valuable, even if you came into the world with nothing


4. The right to be listened to without having to be interesting


5. The right to be read a bedtime story, without having to compete with the evening news


6. The right to an education without having to dodge bullets at schools


7. The right to be thought of as adorable – (even if you have a face that only a mother could love).

Freelance Writing Opportunities : Are You a Wizzler Too? (Wizzley.com)

Once heard the late Gene Kelly (1912 - 1996) describe the late Michael Jackson (1958 - 2009) as being “eclectic”. The word “ec·lec·tic” is an adjective and it means, in the sense that it was used by Mr. Kelly, that Mr. Jackson derived ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources, and applied this knowledge quite well, especially when he performed.

If I were to describe my collection of pages published at Wizzley.com, the word eclectic would paint a very nice picture.

My first article – accepted for publication two five years ago - was about modern day Arabs who claim to be the seed of Abraham and there is no reason why anybody should doubt their claims. The Hebrew patriarch that the Jews, Christians and Muslims all call Father Abraham had many sons (one by his first wife, Sarah; one by his first wife's maid servant, Hagar; and several more by his second wife, Keturah, whom he married after the death of his first wife). Those sons had a bunch more sons and the lineage just kept on growing!! One of the sons of Abraham was Ishmael and he went to live in the desert. It is believed that the “desert people”, the Arabs, are his descendants.

My pages are eclectic because finding a “niche” has proven to be a most difficult task. Can't seem to find a specific topic to focus on. Consequently, my pages are about movies , music and books ; real estate , art , history , food , blogging , etc. To date, 37 pages have been published.

The Wizzley Team encourages their writers to publish a Wizzography ; which is very similar to our introductions here at Persona Paper; only it's not required. Very much enjoy writing at this site and the community is exceptionally friendly and supportive and … way smarter than me!  :)

Your Song Lyrics Equal Your Money?



Advice for budding new artists:
You Wrote the Song – You’re Entitled to the Money. 

Those aren’t the exact words the man said but he sure did drive his point home.
 


 

It happened because one man had written a song and couldn’t remember the words to his own song. He searched for the lyrics on the Internet and found them. He also found websites that were earning money by supplying the lyrics to the songs that he had written and he wasn’t getting a red cent! What could he do about it?


Here’s the link that tells the whole story.

I am so much wiser now. Before listening to the report on the radio I did not know who David Lowery was nor did I know that Rap Genius was a site where you could get song lyrics.

Most of the time, I can usually find the words to a song at A-Z Lyrics Universe.

Also, I very much appreciate the representative for Rap Genius clarifying the difference between a “desirable website” versus an “undesirable website”. It’s a fine legal line indeed! (Wink wink.)

Very pleased that the matter was settled expeditiously and the legal understanding was explained in such a way that everyday people like me could get it! This is not quite the same scenario but … When the late Michael Jackson bought the publishing rights to The Beatles catalog of music, Sir Paul McCartney was extremely upset. Furious is probably a better word. Why wouldn't he be? But the purchase transaction was perfectly legal. Mr. Jackson's response or reaction was: “It's just business, Paul.” Legal or not, to me, it seemed and still seems downright WRONG! If you're still living, you should reap the benefits of your “labor”.
