Randall Roberts at the LA Weekly brings us the big news:
[E]conomists looking for symbolic proof of the coming depression need not look any further than Neverland Ranch, Michael Jackson’s longtime Valhalla outside of Santa Barbara. Last year Jackson sold the ranch, and now, with a Beverly Hills auction that promises to mark the metaphoric end of American cultural dominance (to say nothing of underscoring the dangers of allegedly diddling Neverland guests), the pop star is selling his vast collection of impulse purchases within.
Julien’s Auctions will host a week-long exhibition of the collection starting April 14. The auction itself will take place April 22nd to the 25th. Julien’s is located at 9900 Wilshire Blvd in Beverly Hills.
The Guardian UK has a marvelous slideshow of some of the items that will be up for auction. If you love us, you will buy us the Sega flight simulation arcade game with safety barrier and attendant station for 6K. You will.
