Michael Jackson - Beat It (Demo)
As Jackson couldn’t fluently play any instruments, he would sing and beatbox out how he wanted his songs to sound by himself on tape, layering the vocals, harmonies and rhythm before having instrumentalists come in to complete the songs.
One of his engineers Robmix on how Jackson worked: “One morning MJ came in with a new song he had written overnight. We called in a guitar player, and Michael sang every note of every chord to him. “here’s the first chord first note, second note, third note. Here’s the second chord first note, second note, third note”, etc., etc. We then witnessed him giving the most heartfelt and profound vocal performance, live in the control room through an SM57. He would sing us an entire string arrangement, every part. Steve Porcaro once told me he witnessed MJ doing that with the string section in the room. Had it all in his head, harmony and everything. Not just little eight bar loop ideas. he would actually sing the entire arrangement into a micro-cassette recorder complete with stops and fills.”
Reasons why I laugh when people say he wasn’t a real musician.
ohhhh my fuck
Anonymous asked: why does Tumblr care if white people want to dress in Native American headdresses and shit? I can understand getting offended if they painted their skin red or did those stupid Indian noises you hear in cartoons but they don't do that, they're just showing an appreciation for the culture in their own way and I actually know some Native Americans who appreciate it. My guess is they just want to mask their racism under self righteousness.
It’s easier to complain about non-consequential stuff than be an actual activist.
This is how you handle getting your privileged called out.
Not “reverse racism!” Not “heterophobe!” and all those other dynamics that don’t exist. Just recognition. Recognition of privilege (and hopefully continuous self-checking)
^ THISNice to know that bullying is only a problem and only leaves psychological scarring if you’re not part of a minority. Wouldn’t be surprised if the black lesbian herself was a bully in high school, and used her race and sexuality as an excuse. Reminds me of all the teachers that made excuses and condoned my the ringleader of my friend’s gang of bullies, because the ringleader was a rich Asian girl, and my friend was a working class girl who got a scholarship into an extremely wealthy private school, where students from poorer backgrounds were often bullied for being unable to afford new uniforms or chauffered cars or expensive shoes.
