1979年,由國際大導演胡金銓編導,歷時兩年,耗資數百萬元,全部在韓國取景拍攝的影片《山中傳奇》,在觀眾千呼萬喚之下,終於在當年暑假黃金檔隆重推出和大家見面。由於影片製作、編導、演員陣容十分堅強,在韓國拍攝期間,即引起國內廣大影迷的關注,傳播界更以大幅版面詳細報導其拍攝過程。照理說,《山中傳奇》應該廣獲影迷的支持,票房更是應該節節上升才對,然而事與願違,看過該片的人都抱怨「看不懂」,「連故事說什麼都搞不情楚」,影評家也認為導演沒有把故事講完。一夕之間《山中傳奇》由高峰跌至谷底,票房慘不忍睹。然而這部廣受批評的電影,卻在年底舉辦的第十九屆金馬獎獲得評審團一致青睞,囊括最佳劇情片、導演獎等六項大獎,幾乎打破歷年來金馬獎得獎最多的影片記錄,這究竟是怎麼一回事?為何有如此大的落差?

《山中傳奇》是根據宋朝時代流行的小說「宋人話本」,當中一篇叫〈西山一窟鬼〉改編而成。劇情描述宋代書生何雲青(石雋飾)隻身前往西山抄寫佛經,以超渡當年戰死邊彊的大批官兵,沿途誤陷鬼魅纏身的「美人計」而不知情,之後竟與女鬼樂娘(徐楓飾)結為夫妻。爾後引來眾鬼搶奪經文,愛慕何雲青的女鬼依雲(張艾嘉飾)出面搭救,展開一場驚心動魄的對決。

從《龍門客棧》開始,胡金銓一系列的武俠片如《俠女》、《忠烈圖》、《迎春閣之風波》等為此類電影樹立了楷模。他在剪接節奏、畫面構圖上所下的功夫,無人能及。這次拍攝的《山中傳奇》格局更大,影片開始一場的山林、夕照、步聲氣派之雄偉,在中國電影中堪稱首見。因此,大家莫不期待早日觀賞到大師這部精雕細琢的電影。果不出所料,《山中傳奇》搶先在暑假頭檔上映,立刻造成滿坑滿谷的盛況,對於看厭拳腳片、胡鬧片的觀眾而言,可說是如久旱之望見雲霓,為之心脾一涼。

可惜好景不長,電影上演沒幾天,幾乎所有看過此片的觀眾都發出一個疑問,那就是「看不懂」,甚至說「不知道演些什麼」,也有人表示,「意境很美,但步調零亂,使人有上氣不接下氣之感」。像一顆悶炸彈,炸得大家不知道說什麼才好。緊接著各報影劇版的影評陸續登場,記得當時《民生報》首先發難,說《山中傳奇》放映時間長達一小時五十分,目前在國語劇情片中應屬長片,可是看完本片的感覺是,「導演好像沒有把故事講完」,有些地方交代不清,有些地方又嫌冗長。作者並說,胡金銓處理歷史片、動作片向來有其獨特的風格,《山中傳奇》主要內容情節經過過於簡化,只剩下情節與情節之間的過場戲。不管是哪家報紙的影評,都是針對戲院放映的一小時又五十分鐘的版本發表評論。

事實上,《山中傳奇》全片共長三小時又十分,當時片商為了配合國內戲院每天放映場次(一天六場),硬是將它剪成一小時五十分的版本,儘管導演一百個不願意,也無濟於事(胡導演日後絕口不提《山中傳奇》被胡亂剪去一個多小時這件事,他甚至沒看過被剪成二小時的版本)。如此一來,劇中人物的前世背景,因果造化都失去蹤影,剩下一個薄弱的故事架構,難怪觀眾看得霧煞煞,抱怨連連。

最令人發噱的是,孫越為了拍攝此片,跟著慢工出細活的胡導演及演員在韓國一待就是一年,片子上映時,孫越一個鏡頭也沒有,他的朋友紛紛向他反映:「老孫呀,怎麼回事?廣告上、片頭上你的名字都不小,還想看看你在韓國苦了那麼久,還被汽車撞斷了骨,究竟熬出什麼成績,結果連個背影也沒見著!」連孫越的老婆也說:「電影演完了,你還沒出來呀!到底哪一個是你呀!」

孫越苦笑著回答:「一定是片子太長,所以把其中倒述的三段戲給剪了,我是活在回憶裡的,這一來就沒有我了。」

就在大家對影片議論紛紛時,電影圖書館特別為胡導演辦了一場座談會,邀請包括瘂弦、葉維廉、何懷碩、李昂、王曉祥、洛夫、汪瑩等藝文界人士參加,在長達三小時的討論中,胡金銓向詢問者陳述他的電影觀點。胡金銓表示,自己的電影已面臨最現實的考驗,以後他拍片最要緊的是減低成本,在不失去理想的原則下去爭取營業方面的成績。但他也表示,永不放棄對電影藝術做更大追求的「野心」。

這場座談會顯然沒有為胡金銓的電影加分,《山中傳奇》在票房極差的情況下,黯然落幕。這應是胡金銓從影以來,耗時最多,花費也最多,卻是票房最差的一部,他的難過是可想而知的。

猶記得《山中傳奇》在韓國拍攝時,不時有拍攝新聞傳回國內,其中有一場張艾嘉帶石雋去採草藥的場面,用了很多煙,拍出一種冷颼颼的美麗的景致,給人留下深刻的印象。

多年後,胡金銓在接受日本媒體訪問時,曾透露,「那是雪獄山,景色很美,雪獄山之中只有一間酒店,我們每個人都住在那裡,但離拍攝現場還有一大段距離,我們通常清晨四點起床登山,大約要走三個鐘頭的山路,韓國的冬天相當冷,每天一大早就要頂著酷寒,抬著器材上山,拍得很疲累。」他絕沒有想到,這麼嘔心瀝血拍攝的影片,下場竟是如此。

原以為《山中傳奇》就此下台一鞠躬,未料各國的影評人,對「山」片有極高的評價,紛紛邀請胡金銓參加各國影展,胡金銓又再度奔波各地。就在胡金銓在維也納為「山」片宣傳時,接到金馬獎的電話,原來《山中傳奇》已被提名九項金馬獎,胡導演得知匆匆趕回,參加11月2日舉辦的頒獎典禮。結果《山中傳奇》爆出冷門,以壓倒性的勝利,獲得包括最佳劇情片、最佳導演、最佳攝影、最佳配樂、最佳錄音、最佳美術設計等六項大獎。特別要說明一點,參加金馬獎送選的《山中傳奇》,乃是未經切割的原版,也就是說,只有評審才看過該片的完整版。

《山中傳奇》獲獎的第二天,就有讀者投書給《聯合報》,希望能觀賞到全版的《山中傳奇》,盼望片商能重映,好讓大家也能評賞這部獲獎最多的影片其成功的意境何在。照理說,電影在獲得多項大獎後,片商無不打鐵趁熱,迅速推出得獎影片,搶攻市場。令人不解的是,《山中傳奇》的片商竟然沒有任何動靜,也不在乎影迷想一窺全貌的要求,眼睜睜的看著這個良機飛走。

一年三個月後,就在大家都不記得《山中傳奇》這部電影時,片商居然拿出「山」片的完整版重映,檔期放在春節前一個禮拜,也就是家家戶戶忙著過年的前夕,一看就知道是拿來墊檔的。我就是在這個時候再進戲院,補足以前被片商胡亂剪掉的部分。說來令人難以置信,當天連我只有四個觀眾,我好想跑到戲院門口,對著過往的民眾大聲為大師宣揚,這部有著輝煌成績的電影。

一晃好多年過去了,再也沒有機會看到「山」片重映,拜科技之賜,這些年許多塵封多年老片紛紛以「舊瓶新裝」的姿態出現,獨不見《山中傳奇》的蹤影。我想可能無緣再看這部電影了。未料前幾個月居然在坊間發現「山」片重現江湖,我不清楚是不是完整版?立刻打電話向片商求證,對方告知片長兩小時,不是完整版,完整版要半年後才會上市。等了半年終於買到我夢寐多時的影片,彷佛是多年未見的老友,重逢那一刻內心真是激動。

如果你沒有看過《山中傳奇》,或是當年只看過胡亂修剪的版本,建議你不妨看一下,保證讓你讚不絕口!

 料理女神莊月嬌,前進大陸心情糟,返台窩居起爐灶,擁抱熟客拾歡笑。

  告別了食方,去了大陸4個月,女食神莊月嬌回來了,在南港一個很隱密的地方開了「阿嬌伊兜」,國語就是阿嬌她家,重拾無菜單私房餐廳的最拿手,她指著白牆上的撕紙拼貼說:「這是『石縫中的玫瑰花』,是大女兒小紅帽的創作,別小看我在夾縫中求生,我全身可是長滿了刺!」

  今年年初阿嬌接受天地一家連鎖餐飲集團老闆任小勇的高薪禮聘,準備在大陸上海大展身手,沒想到走進廚房,發現困難重重,「明明用了上好的材料熬煮高湯,但廚師們還是硬要加進大把雞粉,我發現文化是時間的問題,跟人沒有關係,即使我是神,也無法改變。」

  ■老客人熱情 溫馨滿懷
  回到台灣,沈寂了幾個月,老客人免費提供地方讓阿嬌重起爐灶,她與女兒花了3個星期的時間,打造「阿嬌伊兜」,50坪的房子只擺大小兩張餐桌,每天只賣晚餐,4人起接受訂位,最多只收12位,每人收費從1500元起,6菜1湯1甜點。

  9月9日9點吉時開張,搶頭香的第一桌客人是鈕承澤與李烈,「其實還沒開張前,呂芳智和洪偉明就跑來捧場,很感謝這些老朋友,怕我餓肚子。」阿嬌說開幕前花了好幾天,手寫100封信寄給老客人,結果有人回信問好,有人立刻上門,老客人的熱情回應讓她備感溫暖。

  ■母女默契佳 搞定一切
  阿嬌還是阿嬌,創意功力絲毫未減,但跟以前阿嬌的店-食方等私房餐廳最大的不同是,24歲的漂亮女兒在身邊當幫手,大小事母女一起搞定。小紅帽是侍者,是雜工,是設計師,也是開心果,母女倆人一搭一唱,自然流露的親情與合作無間的默契成為阿嬌伊兜最大的特色。

  擺盤延續阿嬌的美學風格,偶爾加上女兒的神來之筆,料理則回歸傳統的好吃,她重做老菜,鑽研美味要領,例如白菜滷回歸到最傳統的煮雞高湯做底,蛋燥選用鴨蛋才會色美味香,五花肉先醃再蒸才能滋味結合。如此用心計較的白菜滷,好吃到讓豆導衝進廚房,猛拍牆壁,飆出國罵,激動難掩。

  ■料理純手工 食材講究
  阿嬌的料理走進純手工時代,廚房地上擺著剛醃不久的鹹菜缸、後陽台用衣架晾著實驗用的昆布,乾燥箱裡擱著縮小成四分之一尺寸的香蕉乾,有客人訂位的日子,阿嬌凌晨2點便到基隆買魚,豬肉一定是皮厚油香的黑毛大豬,連熬高湯的雞都不隨便,每隻成本超過500 元。

  現在的阿嬌,達到內心所想所願,無論是親情或料理,天天都快樂得不得了!

湘菜味濃如猛男,辣如層層肌肉山,鹹似重拳難轉圜,通體酣暢腹飽滿。

  4年多前,我參加了1010新湘菜的開幕記者會,從此之後便經常上門,不是因為老闆請客,也不為新菜發表,而是1010變成我用來犒賞自己的私房菜館,儘管它裝潢時髦,還開在百貨公司裡。

  小學就讀女師專附小,公園路上有一家湖南小館,我曾在那裡創下「呷七碗」的紀錄。有人說,記憶中的美食永遠最美味,湘菜對我而言就是大口吃菜,大口扒飯,既辣且鹹,非常過癮。

  ■米飯現蒸 魚頭滑口
  1010就像童年那家湘菜館的升級版,現蒸的白米飯像墊著腳尖般,一粒粒擠在土色小陶碗裡;紅的剝皮辣椒盤踞在黑的皮蛋身上,油膏裡的碎豆豉讓兩者更深刻;一整個鰱魚頭對剖的霸王魚頭,鋪滿綠中帶紅的泡綠椒與醃紅椒,覆料酸香,魚肉滑口,毫無土味。

  吃臭豆腐肥腸阿干鍋不能急,醬汁滾沸,臭豆腐長大,肥腸抖動了才能動筷;沾滿孜然的神仙排骨,生醃現炸,咬即脫骨,爆出異香。我通常不點湯,熱湯如火上加油,只點甘蔗汁,並暱稱是有誠意的甘蔗汁,因為連冰塊都是甘蔗汁凍成的。

  ■兩家店面 天天客滿
  泰統集團執行長徐承義,經營瓦城、非常泰等泰國料理20年有成, 4年前在誠品信義店開了1010新湘菜,日前新光三越天母店再開分店,雖然生意很好,天天客滿,但他卻發現年輕一代不認識湖南味,不知道湘菜與川菜都是主辣,所以日前他把名字改成「1010湘辣料理」,還在招牌前加了一根大紅辣椒。

  湘菜是中國八大菜系之一,上溯千年,源遠流長,大家熟知的戰國時期愛國詩人屈原,除了為後世留下吃粽子的習俗外,他的著作也記載了許多當地菜餚,甚至在西漢馬王堆裡也挖到竹簡菜單,當時即有上百道菜品。

  而湘菜跟其他大陸菜系一樣,隨著外省移民在台落地生根,早年包括來來(喜來登的前身)、亞都、希爾頓等飯店都曾經有過湘菜餐廳,坊間也有多家湘菜餐廳主打平價吃到飽,如今老字號的只剩彭園,近期唯一崛起的就是1010。

  雖然川湘經常並論,但湘辣與川辣很不一樣,川菜像女人,時而嬌媚,時而撒潑,令人捉摸不定;湘菜是個漢子,直來直往,性情豪邁,不會拐彎抹角,這樣吃飯才認真、才踏實。

私房菜餚藏陋巷,窈窕廚娘很怕胖,少油料理滋味香,鑊氣調味一級棒。
  自稱已經退休3次的迪化街花生大王昌正浩,每天最大的樂趣就是上網找好吃,為了吃,即使再遠再晚(或再早)都會開車殺去,「我不相信網路,10次只中1次,而棻蘭家廚就是美味的那一家。」

  ■這裡沒菜單 不收服務費
  大王開著BMW X5親自帶路,轉進敦化南路與市民大道附近窄巷公寓裡,棻蘭家廚整整開了12個年頭,女老闆兼女主廚的高桂蘭留著清湯掛麵頭,猛然一看,無論是講話或身形,都像第一夫人酷酷嫂周美青。

  餐廳即住家,老舊不失雅致,大廳掛著梅蘭菊竹等國畫,角落擺著水墨屏風,大圓桌面拼貼著木紋,客人看了超興奮:我家小時候也用這種桌子,你看上面還有眼睛!(就是圓如眼的紋路)

  花生大王一進門便朝著廚房嚷著:小蘭快出菜嘍!可是菜還沒點,催啥?原來棻蘭家廚沒有菜單,全由高桂蘭一手安排,吃一頓家常飯菜,平均一人約300元,而且不加服務費,負責外場的女兒小棻笑著說:沒有服務,不能收錢!

  4人才坐定,鍋鏟油爆聲響個不停,菜一道道湧出,五花肉燒黑木耳、熗爆小卷、芋頭牛肉、炒空心菜、南瓜鹹蛋、乾煎黃魚,小蘭探頭問:還要繼續上菜嗎?花生大王揮揮手,又上了水餃與梅子燒雞,水餃免費,加計5碗白飯,這頓飯吃了1310元。

  ■辣椒醬調味 噴香不油膩
  「這些菜怎麼那麼下飯,吃起來怎麼會那麼香,而且一點兒也不油膩?」我一肚子疑問,小蘭的答案卻很簡單:「食材新鮮,炒起來就有味道,香氣自然很足。」

  每天都到濱江市場買菜,高桂蘭說自己備料很少,處理很快,使用也很快,幾乎是零庫存,所以酥炸芋頭很香,是因為裡面留有芋頭本身的香氣。

  再加上小蘭很怕胖,很忌油,因此很在意每盤菜的積油量,「炒菜要有鍋氣,不一定要靠油多」,而且調味沒有秘密,「你家廚房有什麼,我就有什麼」,她透露辣椒醬是很好用的調味品,不會鹹,一點辣,顏色又漂亮,調味比想像中簡單。

  ■客人愛吃啥 全部記在心
  爸爸是河南人,媽媽是江蘇人的高桂蘭,自豪做菜全靠天份,雖然排行最末,從小沒下過廚房,但吃過不少美食,直言「只要吃過的菜,我就做得出來。」

  客人想吃在上海吃過的南瓜鹹蛋,高桂蘭就買煮熟的鹹鴨蛋,先用手把水擰乾(別懷疑,真的擰得出水來),切碎再放進冰箱乾燥,鹹鴨蛋碎很容易就附著在南瓜身上,沒有人這麼做,也沒人教她做,全是自己想的,客人吃了也說味道很像。

  ■烹調有想法 親民又家常
  二度上門,邀了8個朋友同食,吃了青椒塞肉、紅糟鴨、炒(ㄐㄧㄡˇ)花、泡菜海瓜子、豆豉鮭魚、青炒莧菜、地瓜燒菇、花蟹蛤蜊苦瓜味噌湯,沒有一道菜跟第一次吃的一樣,這是高桂蘭的另一個天賦,看客人的臉,就記得吃過的菜,客人愛吃什麼,她都知道。

  料理很有想法又富有彈性,因為好吃,讓客人甘願被安排,「很多人不吃鮭魚,嫌它既乾且柴,這是因為煎得太老,只要煎熟表面,加入蒜苗、豆豉等提味,客人便對鮭魚大為改觀。」

  高桂蘭說,10人吃3千4千5千都無所謂,客人付多少錢,就吃什麼菜,不必拐彎抹角,「不過你想花1、2萬元吃一頓,那就不必來找我了!」有個性的人,有味道的菜,陋巷裡的棻蘭家廚令人回味無窮,而且想吃就吃,親民又家常。

南僑集團會長陳飛龍大手筆砸下1.2億元,企圖重現20年前獨領風騷的潮州料理風潮。

  「想啊想,就想著20年前東王漢宮『金島餐廳』的味道,不光是料理與服務,還有那股氣勢與魅力,所以找來內外場的舊班底進駐『潮江燕』,大家一起來恢復潮州菜的榮景。」眼睛笑到瞇成一條線的南僑集團會長陳飛龍開心表示。

  與其說陳飛龍又開了一家新餐廳,不如說他在尋找舊愛,20年前陳飛龍每個禮拜都要去金島吃飯,雖然自己陸續開了幾家餐廳,但仍念念不忘金島的味道。

  ■活海鮮區 現撈現烹
  尋尋覓覓遇到了金島的港籍主廚袁偉洪(人稱黑仔),又找到昔日的外場經理林勝美,耗資1.2億元的潮江燕將在下周一(11月22日)於慶城街一號3樓正式開幕。

  占地300坪共有280個座位的潮江燕,裝潢走紅豔路線,腳下踩著潮州市花木棉的花樣地毯,牆壁不是駿馬山水畫便是圓形古幣圖,還有兩面牆擺滿了壺與杯,展現潮州功夫茶的特色,但最驚人的是以35個水族箱堆砌起來的活海鮮區。

  魚王專門管理的活海鮮區有15坪大,按照水的鹹淡、溫度高低、鹽分比重等做成7個系統、35個水族箱,供應62種魚蟹貝鱉蝦蚌等活水海鮮,種類多樣,現撈現烹,強調潮州海鮮生猛活跳的主軸。

  此外該區還為兒童設計一個及腰的觀賞魚缸,內有魟魚、海星、珊瑚等上百種海底生物,寓教於樂。

  ■凍蟹凍魚 醃鹽蒸熟
  潮江燕的料理有黑仔在金島時代膾炙人口的老菜,但大半經過改良,是他這20年來在台灣餐飲界跳來跳去所累積的經驗。滷水大拼盤是經典頭盤,黑仔承認,滷水不夠老,現在是香料突出於主料,最少要等3個月,兩者才能融合平衡。話雖如此,鵝肉、豆腐、鵝胗、鵝翅等都極為入味而濕潤,突出的草果、桂皮等香料味,反而獨具個性。

  潮州著名漁夫料理凍蟹與凍魚經過黑仔改良,從濃鹽水浸煮變成醃鹽蒸熟,黑仔認為清蒸比水煮更容易留住鮮味,而凍魚的種類除了傳統的烏魚以外,還多了肉細油豐的午仔、加魶鯛等選擇。

  ■普寧醬焗雞 切塊上桌
  陳飛龍最愛滑而不黏、軟而不爛、入味而不鹹的鮑汁炆鵝掌,鵝掌皺皮用吸的就能完全脫乾淨,既嫩且爽。普寧醬焗雞是黑仔的私房料理,使用廣東普寧特產的黃豆醬,加入蠔油與冰糖燜煮3斤重的全雞,黑仔說傳統的口感很酥爛,整隻雞用筷子即可剔肉,但他則切塊上桌,客人可挑選自己喜愛的部位。

  功力深厚的黑仔,自誇什麼菜都會做,但追問他什麼最拿手,回答的全是潮州小菜,例如:潮州小炒、欖菜四季豆、水瓜煎與潮州粉果等,所以潮州燕有賣價很貴的參翅鮑肚、蘇眉星斑,也有110元起的廣式點心,320元起的熱炒,400元起的燒味拼,420元起的煲仔,或是680元起的套餐。

"Hello ,First of all mmm anyway l'm ....please let me say ,l really don't like
to talk that much ,l really don't hehe ,l prefer to perform than talk, you
know let me say this ,the tradition of great performers from Sammy davis
jr ,James brown ,to Jackie Willson ,to Fred Astaire ,Gene Kelly ,the story is
usually says the same though,these guys worked really hard ,and they're
crabbed ,but the story ends the same ,they usually are broken ,torn ,and
usually just sad and the story is very sad in the end ,because the
companies take advantages of them ,they really do.

And being the artist that I am, at Sony I've generated several billion dollars for Sony, several billon. They really thought that my mind is always on music and dancing. It usually is, but they never thought that this performer - myself - would out think them.
So, we can't let them get away with what they're trying to do, because now I'm a free agent. I just owe Sony one more album. It's just a box set, really, with two new songs, which I've written ages ago. Because for every album that I record, I write - literally, I'm telling you the truth - I write at least 120 songs every album I do. So I can do the box set, just giving them any two songs.
So I'm leaving Sony, a free agent, owning half of Sony. I own half of Sony's Publishing. I'm leaving them, and they're very angry at me, because I just did good business, you know. So the way they get revenge is to try and destroy my album. But I've always said, you know, art - good art - never dies. Thank you.
And Tommy Mottola is a devil! I'm not supposed to say what I'm going to say right now, but I have let you know this. (Points to crowd). Please don't videotape what I am going to say, ok? Turn it off, please. Do it, do it, I don't mind! Tape it!
Mariah Carey, after divorcing Tommy, came to me crying. Crying. She was crying so badly I had to hold her. She said to me, "This is an evil man, and Michael, this man follows me." He taps her phones, and he's very, very evil. She doesn't trust him. We have to continue our drive until he is terminated. We can't allow him to do this to great artists, we just can't.
I just wanted to let you know, I appreciate everything you've done, you've been amazing. You're so loyal! (Scanning the audience). Diana, everybody, Waldo, all the people here! I love you all. You've been amazing, I love you!
But still, but still, I promise you, the best is yet to come!"

當大臣很容易,只要記住兩句話:「不能就個別案件回答」,及「正在依據法律妥善處理」,就可以暢行無阻?日本法務大臣柳田稔今天因為這個發言,遭到在野各黨派追擊。

日本菅直人政權的支持率每況愈下,在政權支持率跌破三成,被認為已接近危險海域,內閣法務大臣的這席話,更重創了菅直人內閣,今天一整天在日本國會的質詢中,柳田大臣的「失言」,成了在野黨最佳箭靶。

柳田稔於今年九月首次入閣擔任大臣。他14日於廣島市舉行的國政報告會上致詞時,一時得意忘形,提到在國會答詢最佳「摸魚」方式,就是只要記得「我避免就個別案件作出回答」、及「正在依據法律和證據妥善處理」兩句話,就可無往不利。

這兩句搪塞之詞,柳田真的在國會殿堂上用過好幾次,他這項發言讓在野黨相當憤怒,認為他藐視國會,應受到處分。在野最大黨派的自民黨國會對策委員長逢澤一郎說,柳田沒資格擔任大臣,要提出眾院不信任案和參院問責決議案。

日本內閣官房長官仙谷由人立刻召見柳田下達嚴重警告。柳田則表示,會誠懇接受。

She was there just sitting at the table
Thinking now that things won't be the same
And would you like to go with me
And she answered no to me
I guess I learned my lesson much too soon

I never thought she'd leave me here forever
But who knows just what the future brings
And would you like to go with me
And she answered no to me
I guess I learned my lesson much too soon

Take away this never ending sorrow
Take this lonely feeling from my soul
If only I knew what things bring tomorrow
She'd be sitting here beside me
And my heart would fill with gold

I hope to make a change now for the better
Never letting fate control my soul
And hoping that my prayers will see
The day that you'll come back to me
But I guess I learned my lesson much too soon
Yes, I guess I learned my lesson much too soon

網友大學生私人留言,公開作答:

您好,我是一名大學生,請問依您看來,「學界」有沒有義務因應「業界」的需要而改變學習課程的內容,甚或大到學術方向? 這麼問,是因為有不少業界人士跑到學界來(是誤人子弟?還是傳授經驗?),業界或許有一些值得學習的實際經驗,但那常跟理論搭不上邊,畢竟不管有沒有學術背景都可以進入業界。例如:本校文學院開了一系列「創意產業學程」,(http://gogo.tku.edu.tw/cci/index.html),裡面來自業界的老師,常常利用上課或作業來為自己的事業宣傳;另一方面,又可以在外的工作經歷上大膽地寫「大學教授」,儘管這些來自業界的教授參差不齊。 像這是一篇任教於淡江大學的業界人士的演講,(http://blog.yam.com/oakacorn/article/27775632),我完全聽不懂他在講什麼。基本上,我也聽不懂他上課在上什麼。請問能為我解釋他的意思嗎?

答曰:光是看到貴校「文創產業中心」的「五大主修領域」裡有「創意漢學」,我就想向你致哀了。除了向你致哀,我還能作甚麼呢?

我仔細觀看並分析了貴校設立文創中心的一切說明和宣傳網頁(也建議我部落格的瀏覽客人都去看一眼),發現這這個中心就是建築在臺灣集體幻覺上的一個單位。這不只是貴校的問題,而要從整體臺灣的社會去理解。

我是一個寫作的人,我根本不承認有文創這回事,就好像我是一個正常的細胞,我不承認惡性腫瘤是我的一部份一樣。

文創產業的來歷是一群寄生蟲般的人物,在既沒有創作能力、也沒有研究能力的前提之下,逞其虛矯夸飾的浮詞,闖入原本的出版、表演、戲劇、影視、廣告、藝術展覽和交易等等傳統領域。進入了這些行業之後,他們與上述各領域的專業技術、教養和知識亦無關,他們的興趣和職責就是媒合政商資源,看起來充其量不過就是一種兼領經紀人和營銷者身份的幫閒份子。創作者拉不下臉來談生意,就需要他們。他們生意談大了,就回過頭來指導創作者。創作者要是沒出息一點,就等著被這種人掌控、消費或淘汰;創作者要是不要臉一點,就自己出面說:「我也是搞文創產業的!」可是憑藉著在業內幫閒的資歷,他們可以演講、寫專欄、出書,成為意見領袖,還彼此串合,虛構出「文化創意產業」這樣的語詞。還反過頭來告訴創作者:你們所幹的活兒,其實是我這個產業的一個環節、一個零件、一個「區塊」。

你也許還想問:文創的內容是甚麼?答案可以像這些寄生蟲一樣多變──他們自己反正也是騎驢找馬,連哄帶騙不需要準主意,條列整齊的綱領從1到9、從A到Z,拐人相信它有一套正式的演繹或分析架構就好,他們最高明的技倆就是把一堆行政、管理、財經、統計等科目中可以用常識化語言描述出來的訊息整編成一套冠以「產業」之名的雞零狗碎,摸著石頭過河。

詐騙集團要鍛鍊到極高明的境界,才能夠立足為文創產業;加入他們成為追隨者、學習者則只要夠愚蠢就行了。

親愛的大學生:從你的信裡我會看到良知與品行,如果你不希望浪費時間、浪費生命、浪費智能,建議你遠離這一套課程,因為共犯結構就是這樣的一種東西,正常細胞會死去,而惡性腫瘤一如蒙德羅梭的短篇經典所形容的那樣:「當他剛剛醒來時,恐龍還在那裡。」

Do You Know (Where Your Children Are).flv
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=8UBWR8K2

Father comes home from work and he’s scared to death
Mother cries and [the kid?] now she read
Father runs to the table, he said “What’s going on?”
Mother cries in disbelief “Our little baby is gone!”

Do you know where your children are,
Because it's now 12 o'clock.
If they're somewhere out on the street,
Just imagine how scared they are.

Do you know where your children are,
Because it's now 12 o'clock.
If they're somewhere out on the street,
Just imagine how scared they are.

She wrote that she is tired of step-daddy using her
Saying that he'll buy her things, while sexually abusing her
Just think that she's alone somewhere out on the street
How will this girl survive? She ain't got nothing to eat!

Do you know where your children are,
Because it's now 12 o'clock.
If they're somewhere out on the street,
Just imagine how scared they are.

Do you know where your children are,
Because it's now 12 o'clock.
If they're somewhere out on the street,
Just imagine how scared they are.

Now she’s in the mood, she’s off to Hollywood
She says she wanna be a star, she heard the money’s good
She gets off from train station, the man is waiting there
“I’ll show you what the money is, girl, just let down your hair”
He’s taking her on the streets of Sunset Boulevard
She’s selling her body, girl that will [take a ???]
The police come around the corner, [“Somebody’s there too old”??]
He’s arresting her little girl, she’s only 12 years old!

沒有真正的工作經驗,相關的科系不敢用;跨科系的公司寧願找本科出身還不需要額外訓練
而學歷又說高不高說低不低,所以別人也不敢招你進基層怕你作幾個月就跑掉
偏偏性格又是屬於服從型的,所以搞創業恐怕沒指望
家裡跟學校還有朋友的關係又不夠硬,只能靠自己





----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
簡單說就是間不上不下的公司?

別說百大搞不好進不了千大,
更別說只是在這小小島上,
公司沒有國際經驗,
相關的科系不敢加入;
跨科系還會被酸
而薪資又說高不高說低不低,
所以別人也不敢進基層怕作幾個月就倒掉
偏偏性格又是屬於本土型的,
所以未來恐怕沒指望
商界跟政府還有名流的關係又不夠硬,只能靠自己


這文婊得超兇的,慣老闆:請留點顏面給我

Dear Fans

As the Michael album was being put together, it was decided to bring Teddy Riley on board to work on several songs, including “Breaking News,” a song Michael recorded with Eddie Cascio and James Porte in late 2007 while living at the Cascio family home with his children. Riley produced and submitted “Breaking News” to Sony for inclusion on the album. At that time, no one ever mentioned that the vocals we heard on the Cascio songs, which were basically in demo format, might not be Michael. It was known, however, that the background vocals were a combination of Michael and James Porte.

After the tracks were submitted to Sony, three of these Cascio songs were selected to be on the album, and “Breaking News” was one of the three. The day after the submission and selection of the album tracks, for the very first time, the authenticity of Michael’s vocals on the Cascio tracks was questioned.

Because of these questions, I was immediately asked by co-Executors John Branca and John McClain to conduct an investigation regarding the authenticity of the lead vocals on the Cascio tracks.

Six of Michael’s former producers and engineers who had worked with Michael over the past 30 years - Bruce Swedien, Matt Forger, Stewart Brawley, Michael Prince, Dr. Freeze and Teddy Riley - were all invited to a listening session to hear the raw vocals of the Cascio tracks in question. All of these persons listened to the a cappella versions of the vocals on the Cascio tracks being considered for inclusion on the album, so they could give an opinion as to whether or not the lead vocals were sung by Michael. They all confirmed that the vocal was definitely Michael.

Michael’s musical director and piano player on many of his records over a 20-year period, Greg Phillinganes, played on a Cascio track being produced for the album, and said the voice was definitely Michael’s. Dorian Holley, who was Michael’s vocal director for his solo tours for 20 plus years (including the O2 Concert Tour) and is seen in the This Is It film, listened to the Cascio tracks and told me the lead vocal was Michael Jackson.

These are all engineers, producers and musicians who worked on tours and/or in the studio with Michael when he was recording Bad, Thriller, Off The Wall, Dangerous, Invincible, HIStory and Blood On The Dance Floor, and they all reconfirmed their belief that the lead vocals were Michael’s voice on the Cascio tracks.

The Estate then retained one of the best-known forensic musicologists in the nation to listen to the vocals without any instrumental accompaniment (“a cappella”), and to compare them with a cappella vocals from previous Michael songs. This expert performed waveform analysis, an objective scientific test used to determine audio authenticity, on the Cascio tracks, as well as previously released tracks with Michael’s voice, and reported that ALL of the lead vocals analyzed (which included Cascio tracks) were the voice of Michael Jackson.

Sony Music conducted their own investigation by hiring yet a second well-respected forensic musicologist who also compared the a cappella lead vocals from Cascio tracks against previously released vocals of Michael's, and found that Michael’s voice was the on all sets of the raw vocals. The Cascio tracks were also played for two very prominent persons in the music industry who played crucial roles in Michael’s career. Both of these individuals believed that the lead vocals were Michael’s.

Just to be absolutely certain, I also contacted Jason Malachi, a young singer who some persons had wrongfully alleged was a “soundalike” singer that was hired to sing on the Cascio tracks, and I confirmed that he had no involvement with this project whatsoever.

Sony decided that, given the overwhelming objective evidence resulting from the exhaustive investigations outlined above, they wanted to release a record that included three of the Cascio-Porte tracks - because they believed, without reservation, that the lead vocal on all of those tracks were sung by Michael Jackson.

Although there still seem to be concerns being expressed in some quarters about the authenticity of the lead vocals, notwithstanding the opinion of those who worked with Michael, and two independent forensic analysts, ultimately, Michael’s fans will be the judges of these songs, as they always are. We take all fan comments very seriously, and as I’d stated above, there is nothing more important to the Estate than Michael’s music, his legacy and his fans.

Michael’s fans are extraordinary in their quest for accuracy and their passions to raise their voices in a search for truth! We join with them in our care and concern for Michael. We are continuing to follow up with those who have worked in the studio or on tours with Michael, and if any new information comes to light, we will keep you and the fans advised.


Thanks,

Howard

2010年11月11日- 邁克爾·傑克遜遺產管理公司(Michael Jackson Estate)今天就近日因“流行音樂之王”新歌《爆炸新聞》(Breaking News)而引發的爭議作出正式聲明

親愛的歌迷們,

隨著《邁克爾》(Michael)專輯日漸成型,特迪·瑞利(Teddy Riley)被邀請進來為一些歌曲加工,其中就包括這首邁克爾和艾迪·卡西歐(Eddie Cascio)、詹姆斯·波特(James Porte)2007年底在卡西歐家錄製的《爆炸新聞》(Breaking News),當時邁克爾和孩子們都住在卡西歐家。瑞利製作了這首歌,並把它交由索尼放在專輯中。當時,沒人向我們提起過在卡西歐錄製的樣帶上聽到的聲音可能不是邁克爾的。可是,我們清楚背景合聲是邁克爾和詹姆斯·波特共同的混合。

當歌曲提交給索尼後,有三首卡西歐的歌曲被選擇放在專輯中,《爆炸新聞》就是其中之一。歌曲選好後的第二天,邁克爾在卡西歐歌曲裡聲音的真實性第一次遭到質疑。

鑑於這些質疑,遺產管理公司的執行人約翰·布蘭卡(John Branca)和約翰·麥克萊恩(John McClain)當即要求我對卡西歐歌曲主聲部分的真實性進行調查。

六位曾與邁克爾一起工作超過30年的製作人和錄音師—— 布魯斯·斯維迪恩(Bruce Swedien)、馬特·佛格(Matt Forger)、斯圖爾特·布勞利(Stewart Brawley)、邁克爾·普林斯(Michael Prince)、“冰凍博士”(Dr. Freeze)和特迪·瑞利——被邀請來試聽了有問題的卡西歐歌曲的原始聲音。所有人聽了會被考慮收錄在專輯中的卡西歐歌曲的無伴奏清唱版本,這樣他們可以對主音部分是否是邁克爾本人給出觀點。他們都確認裡面的聲音絕對是邁克爾的。

過去20多年間擔任邁克爾眾多唱片的音樂總監和鋼琴師的葛雷格·菲林金斯(Greg Phillinganes)也說這就是邁克爾的聲音,他這次為一首卡西歐歌曲彈奏了鋼琴。邁克爾20年來個人巡演的聲音總監(也是去年O2體育館演唱會的聲音指導,在《就是這樣》影片中可以見到他的身影)多里安·荷利(Dorian Holley)聽了這些卡西歐歌曲,也告訴我這些主音就是邁克爾本人的。

所有這些和邁克爾·傑克遜在巡演上以及在《真棒》(Bad)、《顫栗》(Thriller)、《瘋狂》(Off The Wall)、《危險》(Dangerous)、《無敵》(Invincible)、《他的歷史》(HIStory)和《赤色風暴》(Blood On The Dance Floor)等專輯中合作過的錄音工程師、製作人和音樂人都確認,卡西歐歌曲上的主音就是邁克爾本人的。

遺產公司然後找到了一位美國國內最有名的法庭音樂鑑別學家來聆聽未帶任何樂器伴奏的歌聲(清唱),然後將它們與邁克爾以前的清唱聲音相比較。這位專家進行了波形分析(一種用來判別聲音真偽的客觀科學測試手段)後報告稱,所有的分析材料(包括卡西歐的曲目)中的主音都出自邁克爾·傑克遜。

索尼音樂公司也進行了他們自己的調查,僱傭了另一位美國國內最有影響的法庭音樂鑑別學家。在對比了卡西歐曲目中的清唱主音和邁克爾以前發行的歌后,他發現在所有的原始人聲中都有邁克爾的的聲音。兩位曾經在邁克爾的職業生涯中扮演了重要角色的唱片業界著名大人物也聆聽了卡西歐曲目,他們都分別相信主音就是邁克爾。

為了保證萬無一失,我還聯繫了傑森·馬拉奇(Jason Malachi),這位年輕歌手被錯誤地指控為雇來演唱卡西歐曲目的“聲音模仿者”。我確認了他與這個項目沒有任何關聯。

鑑於以上竭盡資源進行調查所得出的壓倒性的客觀證據,索尼公司決定發行這張包含了三首卡西歐和波特的歌的唱片——因為他們毫無保留地相信,所有這些曲目上的主音都是由邁克爾·傑克遜所唱。

儘管依然有人對這首歌裡領唱部分的聲音有疑問,儘管那些和邁克爾工作過的人以及兩個獨立的鑑定專家已經給出了意見,但最終,邁克爾的歌迷才是這些歌曲真正的裁判,就如他們一直以來那樣。我們非常認真地對待了所有歌迷的評論,正如我之前陳述的那樣,對於遺產公司來說,沒有什麼比邁克爾的音樂、遺產和他的歌迷更重要的了。

邁克爾的歌迷們求真求準的熱情很了不起!我們和他們一樣都關心關懷邁克爾。我們將繼續和那些曾在錄音室里或巡演上和邁克爾工作的人員保持聯繫,一有新消息,我們會通知你們和歌迷們。

謝謝,
霍華德

It was an unassuming home. Nestled on a quiet neighborhood street in Gary, Indiana, the small, single-story residence was made up of nothing more than two bedrooms, a living room and a kitchen—and a family of 11. Who would have guessed that the close-knit group living in the tiny house would soon become one America's most famous families?

The Jacksons—mother Katherine, father Joe and their children, Rebbie, Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, La Toya, Marlon, Michael, Randy and Janet—lived in that four-room house until the early '70s, shortly after the five oldest sons formed a singing group called the Jackson 5. Under father Joe's strict management, the Jackson entertainment empire was born.

While with the Jackson 5, Michael, the group's rising star, began his solo career and released his LP Thriller in 1982—to date, the best-selling album of all time. He became known around the world as the King of Pop and, despite his tragic death in June 2009, is still recognized by the Guinness World Records as the most successful entertainer of all time.

After the Jackson family became a household name, they packed up and moved into a new, 2-acre estate in Encino, California, which has been their home since 1971. Today, 10 members of the Jackson family live in the home, known as Hayvenhurst, 




including Michael Jackson's mother and his three children, Prince Michael, Paris and Prince Michael II, who goes by the nickname Blanket.

Sitting in the home the Jackson family moved into 40 years ago, Katherine recalls some of her fondest memories of her children growing up within those walls. From Michael and Randy writing 1973's "Dancing Machine" to the children's frequent dance rehearsals, it's clear that Hayvenhurst holds happy memories for this family.

These memories are the subject of Katherine's new book, Never Can Say Goodbye, a tribute to Michael that includes personal stories and never before-seen photographs from his life. Oprah asks Katherine why she wanted to share these stories with the world.

"I wanted to do it for his fans and for the people that misunderstood him," Katherine says.

"Do you think he was misunderstood?" Oprah asks.

"Yes," Katherine says. "I do."

Though Never Can Say Goodbye features many images of Michael throughout the years, Katherine says one image of her son as a little boy is the portrait she has in her mind when she thinks of him.

"I think of my son all through the day, all the time, and I don't like to talk about him because I get all choked up," Katherine says.

She pauses and continues, "A baby in my arms, naming him with my mother. ... That comes to my mind every day. ... And sometimes during the day, I can hear his laughter in my mind."

Michael had many different looks throughout the years, and Katherine says he was insecure about his features—insecurities that stemmed back to his teen years. When Oprah interviewed Michael in 1993, she says he didn't want any pictures of himself as a teenager to be shown. "He thought of himself as ugly," Oprah recalls.

It's something Michael would say to Katherine all the time, she says, but she wasn't able to convince him otherwise. Then, one day, Michael decided to do something about it. "He made up his mind, and he just left [the house]," Katherine says. "And when I inquired about where he was, [he said] he had gone down to get his nose done."

That surgery sparked a series of surgeries that seemed to transform Michael right before his fans' eyes. His nose got smaller and smaller—"like a toothpick," Katherine says.

Katherine says she tried talking to her son about putting an end to the surgeries, but she believes he became addicted and could not stop himself. So, Katherine says she reached out to his plastic surgeon.

"I said [to Michael's plastic surgeon]: 'If he comes there and wants you to work on his nose, just tell him you did it and do the same thing. Don't change it, and just tell him, 'Okay, I've finished,' and that's it,'" Katherine says.

"But they didn't listen to you," Oprah says.

"No," Katherine says. "They should have."

In the midst of Michael's fame, scrutiny and surgeries, he married Lisa Marie Presley in 1994. Katherine, along with the rest of the world, was surprised by the nuptials.

"He called me after he had married her," Katherine says. "He said, 'I'm going to put her on the phone,' and he put her on the phone. I said, 'That's not [Lisa Marie].'"

"Had you met her before?" Oprah asks.

"No, I hadn't met her before," Katherine says.

Despite how quickly the relationship progressed, one thing Lisa Marie knew early on is how much Michael loved his mother, even telling Oprah that his love for Katherine was unconditional and there was nothing he wouldn't do for her.

"Did you feel that?" Oprah asks Katherine.

"Yes, I did," she says. "And everybody I talked to that knew him would tell me the same thing. I felt it too. I truly loved him."

On the day Michael died, Katherine received a phone call from her husband, Joe, telling her someone had been taken from Michael's house in an ambulance. That person was covered with a sheet. At first, Katherine says, she told herself it might not be her son, but in her heart, she knew it was.

Then, she got a call from the hospital, confirming that it was Michael who had been taken away in an ambulance.

Unsure whether he was alive or dead, Katherine arrived at the hospital and waited to learn about her son's condition. "We stayed in there a long time before [the doctor] came in to tell us," she says. "I guess he didn't want to either. But the doctor had to tell us—Dr. Murray."

Dr. Conrad Murray was Michael's personal physician. He's been accused of administering lethal levels of propofol, a powerful anesthetic, and was charged with involuntary manslaughter for his role in Michael's death.

"Dr. Murray told you?" Oprah asks.

"Yes," Katherine says. "He came out, and he was talking. It took him so long. And I'd say: 'Well, what's happened? ... Did he make it?' And he said: 'No. He's gone.' That's all I remember."

Michael's three children, Prince, Paris and Blanket, were also at the hospital that night. While Dr. Murray was telling Katherine of Michael's death, someone else told them. "They were crying," Katherine says. "I thought [Paris] was going to pass out. She was just saying: 'Daddy, I can't make it without you. I want to be with you. I want to go with you.' I felt so bad for them."

That same night, the children went home with Katherine and have been living with her ever since

Soon after Michael's death, an autopsy revealed that a lethal dose of propofol caused him to go into cardiac arrest and die.

Katherine says she was shocked. She knew Michael had trouble sleeping, but she didn't know he may have taken prescription drugs to help him sleep or get through the day. In fact, she says it took her awhile to realize Michael became addicted to painkillers after he suffered severe burns while shooting a Pepsi commercial in 1984.

"Remember when he got burned in the head?" Katherine asks Oprah. "He had been taking those drugs, and it was a long time before I knew he was addicted to them."

When she tried to talk to Michael about his painkiller addiction, Katherine says he denied it. "I was very serious about it," she says. "I was telling him I didn't want to hear one day that he had overdosed, because it would break my heart. But he kept saying he wasn't on anything."

"You didn't believe him," Oprah says.

"No," Katherine says. "I didn't."


Katherine always stood by her son's side even when some supporters turned their backs. In 2005, Michael was on trial for allegedly molesting a minor, intoxicating a minor, abduction, and conspiracy to hold the boy and his father captive at his home, Neverland Ranch. Throughout the entire ordeal, Katherine showed up in court every day to support her son. She never once believed he could be guilty of molesting or hurting a child.

"He loved children," she says. "Michael would always say: 'Mother, why are they accusing me of something I love the most? I'd rather slit my own wrists than to hurt a child.'"

The trial seemed to take its toll on Michael, his mother says, changing who he was as a person.

"He used to trust people," Katherine says. "And after that trial, he didn't trust anybody. ... He would always tell me: 'Mother, I don't trust anybody. The only person I trust is you.'"

Before taking in Michael's children, Katherine says she had a good—but not close—relationship with Prince, Paris and Blanket. "I can't say that I knew them real, real well," she says, "But I knew them well enough. I would always go visit them, and Michael would always talk about them to me."

Katherine also says she did not like it when the children wore veils while out in public with Michael. "I didn't approve of that, but I didn't say anything to him about it," she says. "Then, their biological mother told me it was her idea [to cover them up], not Michael's."

Going from this veiled life to living at their grandmother's with several cousins seems to have been a relatively easy transition for Prince, Paris and Blanket. "They just bonded the minute they got here," Katherine says. "They had a lot of fun."

The man by Katherine's side for the last 60 years—from their two-bedroom home in Gary to their California estate—is her husband, Joe. The two have been married since 1949. Despite rumors of a troubled marriage, both say they are still together and have never filed for divorce.

"She's a wonderful person," Joe says of Katherine. "I think she's too easy with people. She's just like Michael. She's too easy."

Like his wife, Joe says he thinks about Michael every night.

Watch Katherine tell Oprah about the moment she and Joe realized their son was special.   

"I just can't picture him gone," Joe says. "Every time I go into some place—a restaurant or a casino or something—his music is playing. ... It brings back memories because I remember the songs. I was at every recording session he ever did."

During his interview with Oprah in 1993, Michael talked about his complicated relationship with his father. He even confessed that he was scared of Joe, saying, "There have been times when he's come to see me, and I would get sick."

Watch Joe respond to allegations that he beat his children.   

"Do you think [Michael] was afraid of you?" Oprah asks Joe.

"I don't think he was afraid of me," Joe says. "Maybe [he was afraid] of doing something wrong, and I'd chastise him. Not beat him. I never beat him."

"He told me that you beat him," Oprah says.

"[Joe] used a strap," Katherine says.

Joe says the way he disciplined his children has kept them out of trouble and out of jail. "Nine kids, never been in jail," he says.

"Do you regret those strappings on your children?" Oprah asks.

"No, because it kept them all out of jail," Joe says. "I raised them right, and they were good kids all the way."

In the Jackson family, a new generation of talent is emerging with Katherine and Joe's grandchildren. Prince Michael, Michael's oldest, says he wants to produce movies and direct when he gets older. Paris says she would like to be an actress and reveals that she used to do improv with her father.

Now that they live with their grandma, Michael's children are adjusting to a new "normal." Until this year, Prince and Paris were home-schooled, and despite some first-day jitters, they say the transition into the classroom has gone well. Blanket, the youngest and shiest of Micheal's children, is still home-schooled.

"You all lived, from what I can gather, a very sheltered, literally veiled life," Oprah says to the children. "Did you know at the time why you were putting on the mask?

Prince answers: "Because then if we went out without our dad, nobody would really recognize us."

See what else the Jackson children have to say about wearing veils in public.   

"Did you appreciate being behind the veil or mask at the time?" Oprah asks.

"I appreciated it," Paris says.

The public may have been bewildered by some of Michael's parenting decisions, but Paris says she feels like no one understands what a good father he was.

Watch Paris and Prince describe Michael as a father.   

Paris' favorite memories of her father are when the two of them spent quality time together. "One time, we went on the roof [of our house] when we were in Las Vegas, and we just saw the Luxor lights," Paris says. "And sometimes, he would take me to an art museum because we both loved art."

Without hesitation, Prince shares his fondest memory of his father. "We were in Bahrain. We used to wake up early and walk the beach—with Coca-Cola and Skittles or Snickers," he says.

Whether he was cooking breakfast for his kids—"He was a great cook!" Paris says—or protecting them from media scrutiny, Michael left his children with a wealth of happy memories and cherished moments.

"He was just a normal dad," Paris says. "Except for he was, I would say, the best dad ever."

For the first time, Katherine Jackson opens up about her grief, grandchildren and her son Michael Jackson.

Q = Jackson family has come out publicly and said that these tracks are fake and they are not indeed Michael Jackson . We said let's call Teddy he'll know.
TR = This is my first interview about this topic. Take everything I say seriously. I have been a real friend to Michael Jackson, this record is coming out tomorrow and I'm still haven't gotten paid for this project. Because I did it for Michael Jackson. Not for Sony. Not for the family. Understand what I'm saying and you can read between the lines. Everyone including who we are talking about is bickering and fighting over Michael. It's unimportant, the important thing is to have his legacy going. These vocals are Michael Jackson. All of the people who have been in the studio with Michael for 20 years all the professionals and musicologists went in and they all say it's Michael including me. We worked with Michael, we have been in the studio with Michael. There has been times when Michael didn't even want to be around family and friends. So read between the lines. None of them have been in the studio with Michael for 25 years. None of them. Everyone - exclude Sony - all the people stayed with Michael like Michael Franks who is Michael's right arm like Brett Boxter the guy who always records Michael. All of these people knows Michael's voice. I'm called the finisher because I'm always called at the end of the projects. Michael called me at the end of Invincible. I was called in the end of History including Dangerous I was called in the end and wind up having doing 40-50% of the album. I'm called at the end of every project and I was called at the end of this project because some of the producers that worked on this project had never worked with Michael so they couldn't really figure out what Michael really wanted. They were doing remixes. So when you hear this record you'll hear the records that I worked on. All of a sudden my records that's being scrutinized. It's Michael. And the person who is really trying to stir this up is JM. He challenged me on this record. He is the head of the estate and he challenged me because I said I can't work in this studio I'm not comfortable and I when I left the studio he assigned another producer to mix the same songs that I have worked on and my songs beat him. Now all of a sudden it's not Michael's voice why? Because his songs didn't make it.

Q = So this is a smear campaign
TR= yes it is and the thing is they will lose. Take Sony, take us all, let's go to court. Let's put it on front street and everything the family the estate will be on the front street. And all the truth will come out and you'll see who is right and wrong. It's been going on so long. Michael is the greatest entertainer, greatest person in the whole wide world why would you want to do that to your family? Let the legacy live.

Q= what is your take on the album being released?
TR= My take is keeping the legacy going. How would we keep Michael Jackson the greatest going if we don't have anything. Now I heard 50 records with my own ears. What he would do is go record the first verse and the chorus and he wouldn't do a second verse just to get the idea going. So the next album coming you know I don't want to say too much but the next album coming is a duet album that's gonna be with a lot of great artists because he only did the first verses. It would be great artists with substance. It would be artists that are very creative and great. And I'm going to be a part of that because of my contribution. Even to this album my contribution to this album is not for Sony is not for anyone it's for Michael. The proof is in the pudding I didn't even got a contract. I promise you. They'll streaming it tomorrow. and people will tell you I came on this project because of Michael not anyone else. So when this gentleman told me to come to this project and don't worry it was for him to put his name on my records.

Q= I take you have your attorney's on for tomorrow?
TR= No question. My attorney is the greatest attorney in Atlanta (Joel Katz) so I'm not worried about anything he's the best. All I worry is my friend (MJ) having a great album. When I started the first song they thought that I'll be like the other producers taking 5 -6 days. No I took 5 hours and finished the first song. So when I finished the first song , they thought I'll do one song because a lot producers spent months on one song. Me I came in did it in 5 hours because I knew I had sounds that Michael made us go sample that was his thing sounds. He made us go in the wilderness and sample, go to his zoo and sample lions . Back in the day when they had stereo decks he made us go out sample sounds. He went out to his zoo in Neverland and sampled wild animals. Well that's another story to tell. There's so much friction and people just don't understand family everyone needs to get this legacy going. Like everyone saying "Elvis is still alive" Well you are killing Michael. Why? I wanted to tell you that all that's going on is all about money and everyone is in it for the wrong reasons. Their intentions are wrong.

Q= How did you feel when you were working on this project.
TR= Listen I did everything under the sun cried, sad. Then I came in one day I said the only thing that would make me feel like Michael is here is that I called his photographer Harrison Funk and asked him to come in and bring all the pictures of Michael. I had pictures all around the studio which you can probably see if we do a documentary. So you'll see pictures of Michael all around the studio so that I can feel like he's in the room with me. That was the only thing to keep me sane and not go crazy because you would hear me on the music hitting the keyboards and tears coming out of my eyes.

Q = do you think conspiracy (asking about the album)
TR= Definitely conspiracy. I cannot say directly say it because I signed a nondisclosure agreement. There has been a conspiracy from A to Z. There are people who are doing this for good because they are doing it for the good of the children. There are people who are stopping it because they think good of the children is not in their best interest. ( He declines to comment about Michael's death and conspiracy ).

這首歌是真貨還是偽物?
我認為是真的,
因為假如說這是假的
SONY就犯法了
如果他們手上有花了一億六千萬美元買來的材料
沒有必要去找人假唱

歌曲本身
詞的部份比較沒有爭議
因為MJ之前就出過這種歌曲
有人提出把「Michael Jackson」放在歌詞裏唱
(還自己X2句尾押韻)對此感到刺耳
但有人反駁說Michael在引述八卦媒體的報導時也會引述出自己的全名
並不是自我詆毀,反而是吸睛效果,覺得那些感到刺耳的人有點小題大做

曲的部分....副歌很難琅琅上口(可能還要多聽幾遍
BRIDGE和結尾的地方很薄弱
節奏部應該是最OK的

至於這到底是不是MJ唱的
有他的聲音,但是....經過重製過了
還有招牌聲音的拼貼,(個人覺得這蠻沒格調的拼貼
這是盡全力的MJ嗎?不盡然....所以要強化聲音
到底這個扭曲過的MJ是百分之幾的MJ呢?反正不是100%
不是100%那麼80%甚至更低,低到多少才算是假呢??
我不至於覺得這首歌裏全然沒有MJ的存在
雖說MJ成份只是低了些...可是這還是MJ

私心以為
會被SONY挑上只是因為歌詞題材是講媒體的,很有戲
如果是MJ三思之後可能不會挑上這首歌的,
還不夠銳利,還不夠成為大賣,聲音還不夠戲劇化
(放一邊涼快去,三年後再來看看還是丟一旁,改頭換面玩一玩又丟一旁
有些歌就是先天不良,很難讓他滿意,
所以他才會有這麼多的DEMO

有網友說了
假如專輯裏首首都是像這樣
即使是百分之一千的MJ作品
也會慘賣(首週20萬,世界總銷量800萬...會不會太少了

那些說是別人代唱的人,讓我想起...
TII在上映之前還不是一堆人說是替身?
這真是奇風異俗,
從..我想想,從網際網路社群開始發達的2000年以後就是這樣了
流行樂之王要出專輯
先要被所謂歌迷痛罵一番,用力唱衰
罵得越兇的表示是越鐵桿的歌迷...

蘭嶼達悟族人與台東南王部落卑南族人,一海一山,文獻上,僅四十年有過一次宗教交流;四十年後,兩族將再度「交流」,非關宗教,而是為了抓鼠。

蘭嶼野鼠為患,但達悟族人討厭鼠,不擅長抓鼠,眼見島上作物遭野鼠啃食,氣得心頭冒火卻束手無策,甚至有族人不甘心血被吃光,乾脆棄耕。

台東南王部落的卑南族人有捕食野鼠傳統,動保法實施後,可抓得動物少了,野鼠成了族人的主食之一。每年部落大獵祭,族人上山,一次就能抓得上千隻野鼠。

多數討海的達悟族人,厭鼠不會抓,決定跨海求援,請活躍山區的卑南捕鼠高手登島「技術指導」;將帶隊前往的卑南青年南彥吉說,「沒獵過蘭嶼野鼠,不曉得好不好吃。」

蘭嶼野鼠近一年來暴增,外觀與在地的小野鼠不同,鄉民目測有的野鼠甚至超過半斤,因不擅長抓鼠,無法確定品種。但鄉公所秘書黃正德懷疑,超肥的野鼠應是外來種,可能是風災後隨漂流木到蘭嶼。

他表示,入侵的野鼠,已在島上六個部落造成「災情」,島上主要栽培的地瓜、芋頭、山藥,還沒收成就先被啃光。

鄉公所日前到南王部落請求協助,卑南族人本月四日將由部落青年會副會長南彥吉率領八人團隊入島滅鼠,也是兩族四十年來第二度「交流」。

外來種 全島入侵

【記者董俞佳/屏東縣報導】蘭嶼老鼠為患啃光作物,屏科大野生動物保育中心主任裴家騏說,蘭嶼是全台生態系統最特殊的地方,任何外來種在蘭嶼都很容易造成「全島入侵」,影響會比其他島嶼嚴重。

裴家騏強調,外來種入侵後不容易清除,「快速反應、快速了解,快速動作,是抑止外來鼠群最好的方法。」蘭嶼面積小且是低平海島,沒有高山可保護原生種不被外來種入侵;外來種沒有天敵很容易擴大族群。

「蘭嶼老鼠確有可能因風災漂洋過海而來」,裴家騏說,只要驗島上老鼠遺傳基因,就可知道來源。
