Leaving Neverland, Wherever You Are

Lots of TV talking heads screaming about how shocked they are that the adults in HBO’s “Leaving Neverland” documentary all seem to have just gone along with Michael Jackson’s predation; but sexual predators are experts at grooming entire families, and it happens slowly, over time.

This was certainly the case with what happened during my own youth. These people can sense when space exists between a child and their parents, perhaps created from previous abuse, neglect, some other type of trauma, or a need that isn’t being met at home, and they shapeshift to fill that empty space, meeting the need — not just for the victim in their sights, but for all of the grown-ups around that child. It’s easy to judge looking in from the outside, but make no mistake: These parents and families are victims of the monster, too.

When I was 16 I had a much older teacher start showing me special attention and eventually openly seduce me during a summer art program for teens that I was attending at the Pacific Northwest College of Art, and literally nobody gave a shit. Grown-ups offered me rides to and from this man’s house, where he regularly fed me and my underage friends drugs and alcohol, and had sex with me. None of this happened in the shadows.

MY NEW RECORD GOT ANOTHER KICK-ASS REVIEW TODAY ON THE "SOUND OF AIR" MUSIC BLOG OUT OF AUSTIN!

From Pillar To Post Artwork by Logan Lynn (2009)

FUCK YES. THEY DIG IT.

HERE’S WHAT THE POST READS—>

“Logan Lynn is one of those random-gems I’m lucky enough to receive in the old inbox every so often. (Ironically, Dead Leaf Echo falls into the same category…) Dude is a self-described “electronic-pop musician” out of Portland…and I really like his stuff. He has an album coming out in Fall 2009 entitled “From Pillar to Post.” It’s worth noting that this will be put out by Beat the World Records, the label owned/operated by The Dandy Warhols Though I’ll stay tight-lipped about it…if you dig this track I’d highly suggest filing this release away in the “to-check-out” folder for the Fall; it’s a really great release. (PS – I love receiving full pre-releases and listen to everything I get…but I especially love when I love the release!) I feel like this stuff could be immediately appealing to a large audience.”
