Coming soon to Vegas - The M.J.Monster!

I've managed to come down with hopefully a slightly tamer version of the nasty cold-virus-whatever that my wife has suffered with all week long. So not up to posting much tonight, but I had to get this one out here just in case you missed it:

Fifty-foot man-machine hybrid Michael Jackson would shoot laser beams to attract tourists!

From: The Guardian:

If Michael Jackson gets a residency in Las Vegas, and if there are a few spare lasers kicking around, then the former King of Pop would very much like to build a 50-foot robot with beams coming out of its eyes to promote his show.

According to the New York Daily News, Jacko has been in discussions with tourism officials and hotel owners about doing a residency at a venue like Elvis used to or Celine Dion does now. Only the hotel owners aren't quite convinced yet, hence the need for a robot.

"It would be in the desert sands," explained Mike Luckman of design consultancy Luckman Van Pier. "Laser beams would shoot out of it so it would be the first thing people flying would see. Neon is wonderful, but it's old school."

Discussions have also taken place in regards to a stage set for the show, which would feature a giant audience-interactive video game with human cyborgs controlled by the audience. "Michael's looked at the sketches and likes them," Luckman explained.

Despite all the plans, however, there remains concern as to whether Jackson - who was found not guilty of child molestation charges in 2005 - would be able to sell the required amount of tickets to make any residency work.

I think Michael needs to start thinking about retirement. If he gets the Vegas gig, it will be a bust when he doesn't show up, or doesn't feel like doing the grueling routine day after day after day after day. I thought he was moving to Dubai or somwwhere in the Middle East anyway.
