Imponderable #68: Whatever Dimension Jermaine Jackson Lives In

9 Nov

November 9, 2012

Remember Jermaine Jackson’s big solo hit, um, whatever? I looked it up on wikipeida and he actually did some solo stuff, and some it seemed fairly popular, but c’mon- it’s Jermaine. He’s so useless that he’s the Tito of the Jackson Family. I could have looked him up on YouTube but I hate it when websites laugh at me.

So before we get to the Imponderable, a bit of background.
Jermaine Jackson was born Jermaine LaJuane Jackson. Yep, read it again, “Jermaine LaJuane.” Who says that Joe Jackson didn’t have a sense of humor?
At some point he converted to Islam and changed his name to Mohammad Abdul Aziz.
At this point he seems to go by both, but soon, perhaps, neither.

And now the Imponderable.

Would “Jacksonn” have been cooler? And what about “Jaxon”? For some street cred, he could have gone for “Jaxxxon” and maybe spun a whole new career out of it, because being Jermaine Jackson doesn’t seem to be much of a career anymore, and not for a long time. Given the way the Jackson family is lining up to tear some shreds out of Michael Jackson’s fortune, I get the feeling that some of them (I’m looking at you, Rebbie) may have been pressing the soap slivers together for a long time.

Is Jermaine trying to dodge a process-server?
The question is Imponderable.

    I think they call this “rebranding” and in this case I don’t think it’s going to work. I have never listened to any Jackson ouvre in it’s entirety so I didn’t know what a LaJuane song might sound like. So I said what the heck and checked him out on YouTube. The scariest thing ever is him doing a song with Pia Zadora. Isn’t that like the talent tag team from hell or what?

      Lol, the one thing that scared me when I looked him up was the Pia Zadora team up.

      So how is Identities doing?

        Yeah, apparently that song was in a movie called Voyage of the Rock Aliens starring PZ. Have you seen it?

        Thanks for asking about Identites. Sales are ticking along and feedback is good, but never having done this before I don’t know what to expect. A press release and a review are supposed to be out in the next couple of weeks and that might generate more interest.

          I never heard of it, but I’ll check it out, allways room for another Late Night Movie House entry.

          When the press release comes out, keep me in the loop!

    Methinks a lot of Joe’s young’uns have issues & perhaps deep – seated Trauma. Which would explain Michael’s quirky & idiosyncratic behavior, among other things. Does the Jackson family have reservations about counseling ?


Have something to say? Let's hear it!
