…It’s Website Wednesday: Eternal Moonwalk?

Eternal Moonwalk

The Eternal Moonwalk is a user generated, endlessly looping tribute to the late, great Michael Jackson.

Users from all around the world have submitted moonwalk videos, and the site stitches them all together and allows you to add your own sound effects as MJ wannabes dance across your screen.

Unfortunately, as proven by the videos, there can only be one Michael Jackson.

…Delta is giving their planes new colors?

Delta 747-400

When Delta Air Lines bought Northwest Airlines for $2.6 billion, it acquired 436 planes, including Airbus A330s, DC-9s, and 16 Boeing 747-400s, making it one of the only domestic airlines to fly the jumbo jet.

The only problem: All of them were painted in NWA colors. (Or livery as they call it in the airline industry.)

To fix that problem, Delta will spend more than two years painting more than 40,000 gallons of paint on their new birds, but it’s hard to picture what a 12 day paint job looks like on a plane the size of a football field, so Delta has put together a time-lapse video of the whole process that cuts it down to just three minutes:

What interesting is that at time-lapse speed, the painters on cherry pickers look like the arms of a robot, and the whole process becomes a well choreographed dance that makes it look easy.

…It’s Website Wednesday: RED Universe?

RED Universe

The RED Universe is a chat space designed to advertise for the RED Interactive Agency. Inside of the universe, you can run, fly, chat, dance and punch each other in a classic old-timey style that reminds me of the Guinness commercials. It’s simple, but it’s captivating in an AOL chat room sort of way. Brilliant!

…Mystic Ball makes Chinlone look beautiful?

Mystic Ball

Mystic Ball is a documentary about Chinlone, a “combination of sport and dance, a team sport with no opposing team. In essence Chinlone is non-competitive, yet it’s as demanding as the most competitive ball games. The focus is not on winning or losing, but how beautifully one plays the game”. It’s played by the Myanmar of Burma, and really does look quite beautiful (and difficult).
