Some of you may remember that roughly just over a year ago I was approached by someone on here to publish my written piece on Michael Jackson.
When Michael Jackson passed on June 25, 2009 the entire WORLD mourned and there was a collective gasp of shock. I immediately took to my blog to write about what he meant to me. To my childhood. And what he meant to humanity as a whole.
A bit later a woman by the name of Lorette Luzajic wrote me expressing interest in my piece and wanted to know if I’d be interested in submitting it to a project she was going to be working on. She was compiling a “fanthology” of written works on the late King of Pop by bloggers, writers and fans such as myself.
I was of course, flattered and honoured to be included and told her I would LOVE to be a part of this. On January 9, 2011, I received an email saying the book was finished and ready. I haven’t received my copy as yet, so I can’t do a book review but as soon as I do, I will definitely be doing a write-up. I just wanted to share this with you all so that you may show love and support and purchase your own copy.
The book is available for purchase on Amazon.com. please click >>> here <<< to buy it now! It’s only $20.00 and $1 donations from each book sold will be going to the Kids Help Phone, keeping in spirit with Michael Jackson’s legacy and love for the children of the world.
Thank you, Lorette, for working so diligently to get this book completed. I also thank you for including me in such a special project. Also, many thanks to Eliza Lo for the beautiful front cover artwork.
We still miss you, Michael. I hope your family and fans will find justice.

Hey loyal readers!
I just wanted to take a quick minute to say thank you for getting the blog to #22 on WordPress’s GROWING BLOG list as of September 26, 2009. We fell from #12 a month earlier but that’s OK. I know I fell off at the beginning of October so that affected my standings but regardless I know there would be no Corprah Lanfrey without y’all. I thank you for always coming back and checking for the latest music, movies, thoughts and opinions. The success of this blog is in the hands of you guys, so with that said, I owe you many, many thanks.
Also, with a heavy heart I wanted to state that there is another list the blog is a part of: We’re #38 on Top Posts. This is a huge feat but I can’t be “happy” about it because the post that garnered this feat was my write up on Victoria Stafford I promise to continue to follow her story and the legal case as it develops.
Again, thank you for making Corprah Lanfrey what it is. I appreciate ALL of you. I often check my stats to see who is coming from where and I’ve had readers as far away as Afghanistan, Iceland, The Netherlands and Italy. That is absolutely amazing.
As long as you keep coming back and reading, I’ll keep writing.
I miss my homie.
I’m listening to one of the first songs Slack ever sent me, which also happens to be my favourite, (and one of the last joints he sent me). I love you, homie. Get back soon … You’re missed.
All My Dreams:
This beautiful girl (who is also a friend of mine) needs your help and support.
Lola Plaku is in the running for the 2009 Much Music VJ search. She got her profile approved late in the game and she needs all the votes she can get since she has to play catch up to the rest of the submissions. And I believe she can do it – especially with YOUR help.
PLEASE take the time to go to the website: http://vj.muchmusic.com/gallery/3743#gallery watch her posted video and vote for her!!! ALSO … if you are on Facebook, please join her group: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=27473380472&ref=mf
She deserves this.
Much appreciated and loads of love,
Corprah xo ♥
I was just put onto this amazing new show being aired on ABC. I decided to check it out and when I heard it was being produced by one of the producers of 24 I was like: ”oh HELL yes!” I’m not sure why I didn’t hear about this before it aired but all I can say is WOW. This is GREAT TV! The cast is extremely promising as well. I’ll definitely be watching every week to see what happens next. Check the concept for the show:
What if you saw your future 6 months from now? A glimpse of where you will be and who you will be with. Would you look forward to what was coming…or would you try to stop it? A mysterious global event causes everyone to black out simultaneously for two minutes and seventeen seconds, and each person sees a glimpse of their lives six months from now. When they wake up, everyone is left wondering if what they saw will actually happen. Los Angeles FBI Agent Mark Benford (Joseph Fiennes) is desperate to uncover why this happened and who or what is behind it. And he’s not the only one. Before long, everyone starts asking, “What did you see?” As Mark and his team struggle to figure out what caused this bizarre event, they begin to piece together the future by creating a huge database of people’s flash forwards from all over the world – The Mosaic Collective. No one knows what these flash forwards mean or exactly what the future really holds. But it is clear that across the globe people who’ve never met will somehow be intimately connected and will have an impact on each other’s lives in the next six months. Some will fear what’s coming, others excited; but not a single person will be unaffected. Adapting award-winning author Robert J. Sawyer’s revolutionary novel, executive producers David S. Goyer (“The Dark Knight”) and Brannon Braga (24, Star Trek: Enterprise) invite you to embark on a journey to answer the question, “if you knew what your future held, what would you do?”
Please check your local listings for air times.
