the only reason i'll ever want to go to vegas

this is hands down the best piece of news i read all day. i swear to the l.b.j., if the world has a giant jacko robot roaming around freely through the desert shooting laser beams through it's eyes, i will die a happy woman. and if they ever open up neverland to the public (think similar to graceland) then i'll die a really happy woman. and holy moly, if an insider from the jackson camp (paris? blanket? bubbles?) ever balls up to write a tell-all, i can't even begin to explain how completely ecstatic i'd be.
Michael Jackson wants Vegas robot
03/27/2007 4:00 PM,

Michael Jackson is in discussions about creating a 50-foot robotic replica of himself to roam the Las Vegas desert, according to reports. The pop legend is currently understood to be living in the city, as he considers making a comeback after 2004's turbulent child sex case. It has now been claimed that his plans include an elaborate show in Vegas, which would feature the giant Jacko striding around the desert, firing laser beams. If built, the metal monster would apparently be visible to aircraft as they come in to land in the casino capital. It is the centerpiece of an elaborate Jackson-inspired show in Vegas, according to Andre Van Pier, the robot's designer.

Luckman Van Pier, his partner at the company behind the proposal, claims blueprints have been drawn up for the show and seen by the star. "Michael's looked at the sketches and likes them," he told the New York Daily News. On the subject of the robot, he continued: "It would be in the desert sands. Laser beams would shoot out of it so it would be the first thing people flying in would see."

colleen, we should get together and blog about the time we took an impromptu trip to vegas when we got harrassed by emo bands, flirted with teens and slept on stains of human waste at the frontier.

oh yes, i'd love to for everyone who reads this blog to know that i made the horrible (yet bold) decision to wear my bangs back in a quaff (spelling?) and then got called "a midget with no legs" by some local skateboarders. although i will say that my on stage lap dance by the gayest man in vegas who was wearing a day-glo mankini was a definite highlight.
