Scots snub Michael Jackson movie

Thousands have flocked to the premiere of This Is It, the documentary about the last days of Michael Jackson's life, in cities from London to New York, Berlin, Rio and Seoul. Buc

Despite record ticket sales in the US the screening failed to pull in the crowds in Scotland where the reception was a little less enthusiastic.

Just 53 people attended the premiere in Glasgow, while 40 turned out to see it in Dunfermline.

Kenny Ortega’s documentary is made from over 100 hours of rehearsal footage for the London concerts that Jackson was due to perform in the summer.

This is a wonderful opportunity to develop a creative project. Keep a notebook where you can store images, ideas, phrases and melodies that pop into your mind at odd intervals. This treasure trove will help you blast through blocks that held you prisoner in the past. It will also help to devote a set time each day to artistic pursuits. Exercising your imagination on a regular basis will cultivate contentment. There's more to you than your job title.More
