“These are revolutionary times. All over the globe men are revolting against old systems of exploitation and oppression, and out of the wombs of a frail world new systems of justice and equality are being born. The shirtless and barefoot people of the land are rising up as never before. “The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light.”
These are indeed revolutionary times… After reading this, I was inspired to write this post and this song came to mind–Michael Jackson’s ‘Will You Be There’. Continue reading WAKE UP JAM: #MichaelJackson ‘Will You Be There?’

You may have also heard that his co-star, Michelle Williams got a measly FRACTION of what he earned for her reshoots. Let’s break this down. Mark Wahlberg’s agent was able to negotiate a HUGE fee in order to return to the film, landing a $1.5 million bonus which came up to about 10 extra days of shooting. Meanwhile, USA Today says that Wahlberg’s co-star Michelle Williams wasn’t told about the fee, and she was only given an $80 per diem that came out to be less than $1,000.
