You might remember Dan Lacey as the guy who paints portraits of people with pancakes on their heads. Or, you might remember him as the guy who likes to paint current president, Barack Obama, butt-naked on a unicorn.
Lacey is back again. His muse this time? Michael Jackson. And I don’t think it’s a coincidence since we are now on the first anniversary of his death.
You can check out Lacey’s MJ gallery here. My two favorites pieces are posted below. There’s even this creepy one of MJ butt-naked.
He shed his skin cuz God loves and wants him just as he is?
It’s nice to think Tupac and MJ the child are hanging out in heaven together. Maybe doing some new collaborations and creating mash-ups of their old songs.

Read more text-sized humor at texts from last night.
Jonathan Haeber, the photographer responsible for documenting Michael Jackson’s infamous Neverland Ranch, tells the story of how he came to be at Neverland Ranch and the affect the Ranch had on him.
Haeber begins with, “as someone who finds significance in historic architecture, I neither saw Neverland as significant, nor historic.” It was only after the thought occured to him, “why couldn’t Neverland be ‘historic’ in my mind?” that Haeber decided to pick up his camera and document the place.
Despite trespassing numerous times on different properties in order to get a picture, Haeber had a bit of reservation stepping onto Michael’s “private park.” Haeber consoles himself with the thought,” Michael truly wanted to share his world. It was a genuine wish of his for everyone to understand things the way he did.”
To Haeber the experience was “surreal” and everything he viewed indicated that Michael was an “innocent man.”
Haeber’s one regret? He didn’t ride down the Super Slide.

Well, I don’t know that really. Either way…
Last spring when Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch was up for auction, Jonathan Haeber of Bearings blog, a website for urban explorers, posted renegade nightime photos of the infamous ranch.
Some of the photos were released, but not all. The photos that were released were beautiful and amazing. So, without further ado, here are some of the photos.
