In most cases, I would say this was pretty good on the bullshit-factor scale. BUT this is real, folks. A fundraising campaign on GoFundMe has begun to purchase Michael Jackson, the now-deceased, self-proclaimed “King Of Pop”‘s mansion. The asking price is 75 million U.S. dollars; the campaign has thus far raised $430.00 in a 7 day span.
This is the work of Mr. Mark Blackwell, former Senior Editor of SPIN Magazine, Editorial Director of Raygun Publishing, co-founder of Nylon Magazine, screenwriter for such modern classics as “Just My Luck” and because I know these things, an early member of the late, great SENATOR FLUX. He’s also an all-around good egg. The campaign is designed to help maintain Neverland’s now-mythological status and should this somehow succeed, contributors will be able to visit and spend time, etc. at the (forever haunted) estate.

If you think this is your bag, by all means – contribute. Imagine the possibilities of owning a little piece of Jackson’s land…
