…Billie Tweets?

Billie Tweets

Billie Tweets is a tribute to Michael Jackson that combines YouTube and Twitter to show that we can all speak his language. (With a little selective editing of course.)

…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.

…South by Southwest wants to give you free music?

SXSW Music

If you couldn’t make it to South by Southwest (aka #SXSW for the Twitter-ites) but you still want to keep up with all the latest and greatest in the semi-undiscovered music scene, then check out the fully legal, DRM-free, RIA-safe collection of music that’s been released by the festival’s promoters through the torrent world.

The torrent, which is the fifth such collection to be put out on the ‘net, contains more than 6 GB of music, or 1267 MP3s spanning multiple genres and levels of famous-ity.

Granted, not everything is going to match your specific tastes, but there are plenty of songs to try out, so open your mind and be prepared to discover, because you never know what’s going to be the next big thing.

(Just one warning: There are so many songs here that it will probably crush your current collection of music, and if you try to use the random function on your MP3 player ever again, you’ll still end up listening to 10 SXSW songs between every normal song, so be prepared. Not that that’s a bad thing, just don’t expect your best of Michael Jackson collection to string together like it used to ever again.)

…Paris Hilton is running for president?

Though it’s easy to dismiss her as a dumb blond that just got lucky, I’ve always felt that Paris Hilton might just have us all fooled. She’s taken a rich father, good looks, and a hard partying lifestyle and managed to turn herself into a brand name, a self-made millionaire, and a media darling by just being Paris. She’s survived a sex tape, a prison stint, more controversy and accusations than a Michael Jackson day care center, and yet still manages to capture headlines at will.

Her latest move into the spotlight involved a brief and unapproved clip in the middle of a John McCain ad.

Not to be outdone, Paris fired back with an ad of her own, announcing her run for presidency, and a surprisingly fluid solution to the gas crisis.

Never one to waste an opportunity, she also managed to squeeze in a full minute of bikini-clad eye candy, and enough “that’s hot” to make a mix tape.

Think she doesn’t know where her money making talents are?

…Tamar Levine documents Hollywood?

Tamar Levine - Michael JacksonTamar Levine takes photos of the strange and interesting people that gather in front of the Chinese Theater in Hollywood, pretending to be famous pop culture characters. (Spider-Man, Michael Jackson, Jack Sparrow, Luke Skywalker, Elvis Presley, Etc.)

Apparently, “these are full-time freelance careers for a fiercely territorial group of eccentrics who often take their celebrity alter-egos with them well after they’ve left Hollywood Blvd”.

Definitely a must see gallery.
