The Midnight Planétarium watch was a collaboration between Van Cleef & Arpels and Christiaan van der Klaauw. The watch is made of 396 separate parts and features the six closest planets orbiting the sun in real time (Uranus and Neptune were left out because you probably won’t live long enough to see either one complete a full orbit).

Want to collaborate on a Google Doc with Nietzsche, Shakespeare, Dostoyevsky, Dickinson, Dickens and Poe?
Click here. Start typing. Enjoy the hilarity.
Ninja Update: Wanna see something fun? Mention Shakespeare in a sentence and see what happens.
Poe kept writing distinctly into my sentences so I wrote ”Edgar, you’re not funny” aND HE BLATANTLY DELETED THE NOT I AM SO DONE WITH THIS ASDFKJL
OH GOD IF YOU TYPE “EDGAR ALLAN POE” POE ADDS A :( AFTER HIS NAME PRECIOUS BABY
Oh my God so I typed ‘Shakespeare’ and Shakespeare butted in and wrote ‘The lovely and handsome Shakespeare’ but Poe burst in saying ‘The dreadful and lonely Shakespeare’.
aND FYODOR DOSTOYVESKY ADDED ‘ I do not wish to make myself a laughing-stock before these idle listeners.”
Look what they did to All Star by Smash Mouth
“Somebody once hushedly told me the world is going to roll me. I ain’t the sharpest tool in the shed. She was looking kind of glocky with her finger and her thumb in the shape of a “L” on her forehead. Well, the years start voraciously coming and they don’t stop coming; fed to the rules and I hit the ground running. It didn’t make sense absolutely to live for fun. Thy brain gets smart but your head gets dumb. So much to do, so much to behold. So what’s wrong with taking the back busy thoroughfares? In everything one thing is impossible: rationality. You’ll never know if thou don’t go. “You’ll never shine if you don’t glow”, he growled incoherently. Hey presently, you’re an All Star. Get your game on; go play. Hey now, you’re a Rock Star. Get the show on; get laid. As well as all that glitters is gold, only shooting stars break the mold. ~All Star by Smash Estuary of opinion…”
Imagine putting your research paper in here and letting them go at it.
OH MY GOD I WAS WRITING AND EDGAR WOULDN’T STOP FIXING THINGS SO I WROTE “Edgar shut up I’m trying to write” and he changed it to “Edgar shut up I’m meagerly attempting to write” THIS FUCKING ASSHOLE
I typed in “Hello” and Shakesphere erased it and wrote “Begone with this rubbish.”
I typed “party in the Usa” and Poe changed party to “ill-fated gathering”
I just used it to yell at Dickens about Tale of Two Cities, I am happy now
I CANT FUCKING BELIEVE WHAT I AM SEEING
I lied. This is it. This is the whole series.
How the fuck has no one made a comic to this yet
why do people say “don’t be a pussy” when talking about weakness more like “don’t be a man’s ego” because you know there isn’t nothing more fragile than that
because “pussy” is the shortened form of the word “pusillanimous”, which means “timid, cowardly”
and not the slang word for the female genital region?
literally no one else knows this. nobody.
So let me tell you about the shittiest parent on the motherfucking planet.
I work at a grocery store and this man comes in with his 11 year old son. He buys a pack a cigarettes and a two cases of beer. The son was holding a two dollar drawing pad and placed it on the belt and I guess the dad didn’t notice it at first but when I was about to scan the pad he asked where’d it have come from and turned towards the kid and asked “Did you put that shit up there?”. He told me to put it back and then told his 11 year old child that he “ain’t paying for that gay ass notebook.”. So I looked at the kid, who was close to tears and saying how he ran out of paper at home and my heart broke. So I gave the pad to him, for free, and told the dad I would take care of it. I gave the kid some tokens for a game outside and said I would look forward to buying some of his drawings and paintings when he’s all famous. He kids face was so priceless and I thought everything was good. But then, about 10 ten minutes after giving the kid his notebook, I walked outside and saw this. The drawing pad all ripped up and tossed on the pavement. I could only imagine what happened in the parking lot, but I know that that poor kid heart is fucking ripped apart, just like this pad.
I’m fucking horrified that there are parents like this, who, just because it’s not masculine or gender specificthey won’t let their children follow their true passions or explore interests that lead to their happiness. Even more so, I’m horrified that parents don’t care about the fine arts anymore because it doesn’t have job security. Since when did it ever matter to a child if their passion makes them money or not? Parenting is about supporting whatever makes your child happy. Have some fucking consideration for your child’s wants not your homophobic and anti-art ideals.
Everybody needs to see this
it’s back, and i will not NOT reblog it v.v ever
The only reason I made this is because this is an issue true and dear to my heart. I didn’t come from a family of money or big opportunity. I had no connections, the wrong credentials and no experience. All I had was a big dream and a lot of dedication. And no, I had no help from my parents or anyone else for that matter, haven’t borrowed a dime from them in 7 years. What I have is because I worked my ass off for it.
Want to be successful too? Here are 10 commandments to dream realization!
1) Realize that you wont be in your dream job tomorrow. It might take a long time. I swear if I hear another 23 year old kid whining that they have no future and their opportunity is over, I might physically explode.
2) Those who wait are fucking idiots. If you want something, go for it.
3) I don’t care how shitty you think your art is. When you present your work to people, you better walk around like you have the biggest dick in the world. Most people can’t tell good art from bad art. If you show off your work like you are the god of your craft you can land any job.
4) Know that companies want experience. So save up to do an internship. I promise, 99% of art internships wont pay you squat. If you’re lucky they might pay transportation costs. Internships will open a tidal wave of opportunity.
5) Be prepared to take some criticism (Thank god I didn’t go to art school), and be prepared to do shit you don’t want to do.
6) Know that your first, probably even second job will pay you peanuts. Either take on a second job or do commissions.
7) Cut costs. Use public transportation. Don’t eat out. Steal your neighbors wifi. Prioritize spending.
8) Be ready and willing to give up years of your life. Seriously. If you’re not willing to sacrifice everything, then your dream are not that important to you.
9) Don’t EVER make excuses. Always know that everything you do brings your one step closer to your dream.
10) Don’t ever settle. You’re worth shining among the stars. Don’t ever think you can’t make it. Being in the business, I can assure you I’ve met plenty of artist that are shitty and somehow got well paying jobs.
Thanks to artbymoga for bringing this important issue to light. Dreams aren’t just fairy tales. There are other people living them out right now as your read this.This is beautiful and inspirational and… I just can’t even… Thank you for making this! It inspired me
