Michael Jackson

  1. Previously Unreleased Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury Duets Are On Their Way

    We have a pesky member of the camelid family to thank for this taking 30 years.

    Freddie Mercury, one of the most famous frontmen of, well, ever and Michael Jackson, the man who showed us all that being born cute and talented is no guarantee of enduring sanity, recorded three tracks 30 years ago that were never released, because -- really -- Michael Jackson showed up to the studio with a llama.

  2. You Can’t Dance Like Michael Jackson, But Now Your Face Can [Video]

    It would take years of hard work and discipline to develop the skills to pull off some of Michael Jackson's signature dance moves. As it turns out, it only takes about three days to develop a face-recognition system that lets you control motion-captured animation of a dancer with moves like MJ in real time. That system is called Face Dance, and it's ridiculous.

  3. Neil deGrasse Tyson Dancing to Michael Jackson [VIDEO]

    What It Says On the Tin

    The video's a weird size, so behind the jump it goes. You get a physics puppy and Neil deGrasse Tyson quite impressively busting a move to Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough in one post! You lucky duck.

  4. Twitter Tells Us When We’re Happy. Oddly Enough, It’s Not During The Hobbit Trailer.

    Educated Guess

    I may be at my happiest on Twitter when a new trailer for The Dark Knight Rises or The Hobbit is released or when a celebrity tweets at me but a new study has narrowed down when exactly users of the social network are at our best and worst by checking tweets. Let me guess - we've got a case of the Mondays?

  5. Cirque du Soleil's Worldwide Dance Tribute to Michael Jackson [Video]

    Earlier this month, Cirque du Soleil's performers and employees joined together for a massive dance tribute to the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. This seems to include every single person employed by the legendary dance/circus company, taking place on stages the world over. The largest looks to have been at Cirque's headquarters in Montreal, where the massive choreographed dance was performed in the street for onlookers. Though I am not a fan of the deceased music legend, it's a moving performance and no less impressively executed.

  6. Easily Learn How to Moonwalk [Video]

    If you're headed for the border and it's on your mind, and nothing really matters, but you've got to be on time, it's entirely possible that a moonwalk or two would throw of your pursuers. Not adept at the moonwalk, though? The above video will make you a moonwalk master in no time and people will like the groove of your walk, which could possibly lead to fortune and fame, a life that's so carefree.

    Yes, I did what you think I just did. It was unavoidable.

  7. The Transformers Do Thriller [Video]

    Together At Last

    It doesn't get any more '80s than this: The Transformers dancing to Michael Jackson's Thriller. The only thing that would make this even more '80s would be if Marty McFly showed up in a DeLorean. But it is rad all by itself. (Topless Robot via Buzzfeed)

  8. The Worst, Best, and Weirdest Chess Sets

    In the 12th century, someone somewhere in Scandinavia carved the Lewis Chessmen, a collection of nearly 100 chess pieces of a particularly unique and expressive style. It wasn't the first ornate chess set, but it's certainly a strange and unique set with its shield-biting berzerkers and worried looking royalty. Since the Lewis chess set, the Western world has continued to make stranger and stranger chess sets. Perhaps this speaks to the power of the game, and it's captivating metaphorical nature. More likely it speaks to the human desire to spend stupendous amounts of money. Regardless, chess set making has come to the point where it's no longer about the game but about whatever weird twist you can put on it. And trust us, they've come a long way from simple walrus ivory carvings. So whether your covet these gameboards, or laugh at those that do, please enjoy this humble collection of the least humble chess sets the Internet has to offer.

  9. Ubisoft Fights Game Piracy with Vuvuzelas

    Remember vuvuzelas, those annoying, high-decibel plastic noisemakers that everyone got obsessed with during World Cup season and then promptly stopped talking about? Game maker Ubisoft does, and it's incorporated them into a Michael Jackson-themed Nintendo DS game as an anti-piracy measure. This just may beat the whole StarForce thing. If you pirate the game (which Tiny Cartridge says isn't particularly good, for the record) and attempt to play the ROM, touchscreen cues won't display, and, more troublingly, the shrill sounds of the vuvuzela will buzz over the music in the game, drowning it out. Check it out below:
