Holy holy holy. Just got back from the press preview of the Julien's Auctions' impending Michael Jackson auction, which features hundreds of items from the King of Pop's collection. It is without a doubt the most surreal and disturbing and tragic and thrilling collection of Americana memorabilia you will ever see. You SO have to go see this thing. And then you have to bid on it.
It's overwhelming. Don't know where to begin. Photos:
It's like if Henry Darger had millions of dollars, he would have become something like Michael Jackson.
Thousands of items, each room more surreal than the next.
The auction is open to the public for the rest of the week. Seriously. You gotta go.
Here's a slide show of the VIPs who were in attendance.
