Fellow fans and friends, how are you? I guess you've all noticed the lack of much of anything around here. I was just thinking about how often I used to update this website and how much time I would spend gathering photos for the gallery. Very eagerly in fact, sometimes I'd put it before school work because it was so fun to work on it and then have our visitors enjoy it. But, things change with time. Don't they?

I'm a junior in college now, when we opened this site I was a senior in high school. Needless to say, my workload was different. At the moment I have a very tiring job. The kind of job that when you come home at 1 in the morning, you don't want to think about anything but a bed. I also have school, which is not becoming any easier. The reality of "life" is approaching quickly. What I mean by that is, 5 years ago...all I had to do was go to school, eat, chat with friends, and play on the computer. Now? I have to seriously consider that in a few years time I should (hopefully) be started on a stable career and on my way to complete independence. I may be sharing too much here, but it has a point.

I'm only speaking for myself here, but I know my lovely sidekick Jess has had some major changes go on in her life since starting this website as well. Much of the same type of situation.

In addition to all of this, Michael is nowhere to be found or even heard from. The silence from his camp is very frustrating to me. I donít mind if he doesnít release an album, or if heís taking his time in producing one. What I do mind is the silence. After ďlate 2007Ē came and went, why couldnít an update be released telling fans whatís going on? Sometimes it seems as if weíre being strung along here. Iím not a fan that wants to jump on the ďBlame Raymone K. Bain!Ē boat. Ms. Bain is only the messenger and if she had news to share, Iím sure sheíd share it. A spokesperson, thatís what she is. Meaning sheís Michaelís mouthpiece to the public. If Michaelís not talking, neither is she.

So letís see here. Katrina singleÖit never happened. Which is totally fine, but why couldnít an explanation be given? A new official website, did that happen? Wasnít that art contest that they had in Japan supposed to be related to that? Iím not the type of fan that is fussed about an album release. Iíll be extremely elated to see another one, but in the meantime, there are other artists that I love just as much that are doing great things. Iím only fussed on the lack of communication, but it seems like MJ has been quite notorious for that! Did I miss anything?

What am I getting at? Jess and I will continue to keep this site up for now, it would be so hard to close after so much hard work. I will say this though, if by the end of the year we are still where we are now, I think we may seriously consider just calling it a day. When the most exciting news to update with is news of another reason why Michael is being sued, itís hard to keep this place alive! Hey, maybe next week I'll be biting my tongue and Michael will have a crapload of information to share with us!

So there you have it. I have made a new layout for the site, itís been about three weeks since Iíve made itÖbut I havenít had time to do much more. When I find a couple of days off, Iíll see what I can do! Okay, that's all. That was pretty long, huh?

Until then!


Anyone know anything further about this? Opinions?

SL isn't closing. They have a new update:

Quote :
Lovely vistors, I just wanted to be clear. We're not closing today or tommorrow, or next month. I hope no one missed the part that said we're staying open for now, and in fact I have a new layout waiting to debut sometime soon!

I just have to find the time. I used to have days off at a time, now I usually don't, so I rarely have enough time to do everything that goes into getting it up. I do have to say though, that all things do have an expiration date! It's impossible for anything open to never close. That's just a fact of life, I guess!

No worries, please. We're alive still!

Yay! Thanks for that Marni! Very Happy Hugs
