Slate TV has put together a great mashup video showing how moonwalk was first popularised by Jacko, when dance moves back in the 1980 was nothing more than a bit of side swaying and merry clapping.

I think everyone who agrees he’s the biggest musical legend should learn how to moonwalk.  However, if you do it, at least do it properly for Jacko’s sake and not commit yourself to a moonwalk fail like this one.

To me he’s best remembered by his out of the ordinary dance moves, smacking boogie tunes, and of course the unfading sounds like Eeeeheee! or Wooow!

R.I.P MJ!

Web’s top gem collector Urlesque has spotted this new kick-ass video from a London based We Have Band. Now, I’m a big fan of stop-motion films, but this is something of an intrinsic value, as it’s made from 4,816 individual stills. Created for the song “You Came Out” by some of the bands own members, the 3 minute animation goes well beyond anything I’ve seen, and truly fantabulous.

The band describes the process of making the video as painstaking, as everyone had to be hand-painted and shot over two days with mouth and lyric syncing to care about.
