…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.

…It’s Things Thursday: SuicideGirls: Beauty Redefined?

SuicideGirls: Beauty Redefined

The SuicideGirls are a group of girls that revolt against the typical ‘adult’ star, and believe that all women are beautiful in all sorts of shapes and sizes.

SuicideGirls: Beauty Redefined

To help celebrate that belief, they have created a book called SuicideGirls: Beauty Redefined, and it’s “a 396 page hardcover tribute to the stunning SuicideGirls from around the world”.

The images are collected by region and represent the most beautiful nude images of the SuicideGirls from the past 8 years.

The discreet black cover is meant to match your decor and not look out of place on a coffee table when your parents come over, and all copies of the book purchased through the SuicideGirls website will even be hand signed by Missy Suicide and Courtney Riot themselves.

Check out the semi-NSFW video below for more info, or visit the SuicideGirls website to purchase for just $40.

…Aaron Rose makes some inspiring kicks?

Aaron Rose Shoes

Aaron Rose and DC Shoes have teamed up to create the Rose Mid as part of DC’s Artist Projects.

The shoe, which is available in either a black or wheat colorway, features an interior lined with plaid fabric and custom designed gum soles, with a repeating teardrop pattern that has a single clear teardrop to expose the cork interior.

The shoes come in a custom designed shoe bag, along with a mini ‘zine of Rose’s work, and a Rose designed box.

It’s all designed to pay tribute to the mod, punk and Goth styles that inspired Aaron as a kid, and made him what he is today.

It’s a testament to all the collaborations I’ve had throughout the years that have brought me to this position where someone like DC would come and ask me to make a shoe.”

…The Corpus Clock loves to eat time?

Corpus ClockJohn Taylor’s Corpus Clock, aka the Chronophage, or ‘time eater’, is an impressive looking beast of a clock that was made as a tribute to eighteenth-century clockmaker John Harrison’s grasshopper escapement, a low-friction mechanism for converting pendulum motion into rotational motion.

Despite it’s massive size (over 1.5 meters in diameter) the Corpus Clock’s inner workings are all mechanically controlled, including the world’s largest grasshopper escapement that adorns the top. Electricity does power an electric motor, which winds the clock, and blue LEDs which light up the hours, minutes, and seconds, but the blinking eye, moving mouth, swinging hands and everything else you see is all old-school mechanical.

Another interesting element of the clock is that it’s only accurate once every five minutes. The rest of the time, the pendulum can stop, the lights can lag, and then everything can race to catch up, symbolizing life’s “irregularity”. Despite this irregularity though, the clock is expected to stay accurate for the next 200 years or more.

At a cost of over one million pounds, this solid 24-karat gold clock definitely wasn’t cheap, and it took over five years for the two hundred people involved in the making of the clock to get everything put together, but if you’re going to design the world’s strangest clock, no one ever said it was going to be easy.
