065: Hector Barjot Special

Hector Barjot has been a Michael Jackson fan for more than thirty years and started his MJ memorabilia collection in 1988. He now has one of the biggest collections in the world. From dolls to cuddly toys to rare vinyl pressings – you name it, he has it.

Based in France, Hector is the co-author of the Ultimate Collector book series and also runs a successful YouTube channel about his MJ rarities. His videos have amassed more than 150,000 views to date.

Today he joins Q and Jamon to tell them how he became a fan, what sparked his obsessive collecting and whether he regrets any of his purchases.

063: Q Q&A

Just when you thought things were getting back to normal, Jamon has deserted ship again, leaving Q to man the deck single-handed. Luckily, Q is more than capable of entertaining himself while Jamon isn’t looking.

In this solo episode, Q answers questions submitted by you, our loyal listeners. Episode 062 was the fastest-downloaded regular news episode in the show’s history, so Q felt Episode 063 would be the perfect opportunity to engage in a little back and forth with our ever-growing audience.

Topics ranged from MJ in the movies to what Q would do if if was manning the fort over at the MJ Estate, instead of here at The MJCast.

From Lina Yakoub:
• 
Who are three actors you think would be able to channel Michael the best in a movie (could be singers as well)?
• 
What already existing movie roles do you think Michael possibly could have played?
• 
Do you have any exciting guests on upcoming episodes and, if so, could you give us a few hints on who they may be?

From live-tweeting queen Carley (@MJIsMyGoldenBoy):
• 
Which MJ songs have you not listened to ever since MJ’s passing?
• 
What were the highlights of seeing MJOne?

From Lyne Tyler (@FmrMTLr):
• 
A common complaint with fellow fans is the lack of available materials from the Jacksons’ touring years. As we gripe about not having the Destiny, Triumph or Victory tours on any media, we never ask who owns the rights to those tours. Is it the band (ie. The Jacksons) or another entity? The MJ Estate may not have full ownership and may therefore not be to blame for not releasing them. I personally have no clue and thought you may have insight.
• 
My second question relates to your outstanding work in putting this podcast together. Without revealing your secret sauce, as you all seem to make it so easy, how do you manage to produce such a high quality show with consistent topics and without speaking over each other? How much prep time is involved and how do your respective significant others feel about the time we steal away from them? I love them all for sharing you with us so generously.
• 
One last question. Can we get Mr Thomson to live tweet more? He is priceless.

From Kory Wise:
• 
If you could go back to witness one moment from Michael’s life or career, what would it be and why?

From Reny SanLuis:
• 
If you could own any piece of MJ memorabilia, what would it be and why
• 
If you were in charge of the MJ Estate, what would be the first MJ item/thing that you would put out or do for the public?
• 
If you could go back in time and watch Michael create a signature moment during his stellar career, what would it be and why?
• 
The famous Oprah Winfrey question: What do you know for sure?

From Ashley White (@1958TO4EVER):
• 
Do you know what happened to the tsunami relief song Michael was working on around 2005, that he was shown working on in the Geraldo Riviera interview?
• 
Do you think we will get a remastered Thriller on Blu-Ray as a result of Thriller 3D coming to cinemas?
