That was that? Michael Jackson leaves 3 kids.

by Carl Frederik Waage Beck on juli 8, 2009

Dear friends,

I don’t have much more to say about MJ. Many things were said yesterday at the memorial in Staples, California, and now Paris Jackson is EVERYWHERE in the news, youtube etc. I recognize the HUGE impact Mj has had on the music industry and society as a whole.

But come on! It’s just too much. Seeing the RAY-BAN wearing Jacksons huddle up around this poor girl and staging this vigil as some sort of redemption-show for a truly dysfunctional family makes me want to vomit.

I truly wish that the three children MJ left will be spared of any further traumatizing publicity stunts.

But I fear that will not be that.

Best regards, Carl

Freedom of speech: How to fight with paint

“The 12th imam?” From Artworks by Carl Frederik Waage Beck

Dear friends,
these days something is happening in Iran which hopefully will improve the ability of thousands to speak their mind and express themselves however they see fit.

I am not trying to promote a certain political view here, but when artists, writers and people in general are prohibited from expressing themselves the way they see fit, that is a concern to me.

I encourage you to do what you can to make this change possible:

  • Set your timezone on Twitter to “Tehran” which will make it harder to track the people actually tweeting from Iran.
  • Re-tweet important messages and tweets on the development in Iran.
  • Tweet the following message: “See how you can promote free speech in Iran http://bit.ly/uBnMZ Pls RT #IranElection”
  • Share this post on Facebook and Twitter.
  • Search for #IranElection on twitter and you will see a live view of the change in progress.

best regards, Carl
