Today in videos that will blow your mind: This is called a “Hyperlapse,” a time-lapse video built with a number of camera movements. This would be cool on its own (the process is generally very time-consuming), but the really awesome part is this: It was created using publicly-available Google Streetview data. There’s even a tool that helps you make your own. The results are rad in that way that few things are. I’m gonna stop talking now. Just watch.

The song starts out jagged and raw, only to come apart completely by the end. This is the kind of thing that Deerhunter excels at. It’s what “Monomania” simply is.

So the White House released their April Fool’s joke, a video with a kid president, which would be pretty unremarkable except this kid KILLS IT. It’s like a minute long, just watch it.

“I think I’m stuck.”

Today in the only April Fool’s joke we’ll post on this blog (well, barring this one, probably).

White House Petition of the Day: Make Legislators Wear Logos of Corporate Backers
The latest brilliant idea to come out of We The People website is this petition suggesting that lawmakers should be required to be more transparent about their financial backers by wearing logos of their corporate “sponsors,” just like the NASCAR drivers do. As of Thursday evening, it has accrued more than 9,000 of the 100,000 signatures it needs to be formally addressed by the White House. GOOD magazine previously explored this idea with photoshopped mockups of New York Senator Charles Schumer and Florida Senator Marco Rubio donning logo patches of their contributors on their suits.
Hat tip goes to Dangerous Minds.

Not likely to go anywhere (just like NASCAR drivers, who drive in circles), but sort of amazing.

It’s 2002, and your name is Jimmy Tamborello. You’re looking for a singer to fill out your electronic project, tentatively named “The Postal Service.” And the Sub Pop Records dude is holding auditions. Here’s what happens … according to Funny or Die. (Special treat: Weird Al covers a Postal Service song in this.)

Rodriguez: Sugar Man

(from Searching For Sugar Man)

In case you’ve never heard it, here’s “Sugar Man,” the Rodriguez song that built the legend of “Searching for Sugar Man” — the winner of the Best Documentary. Rodriguez, despite being the main subject of the film, didn’t go to the Oscars because he didn’t want to take credit from the filmmakers’ work. Which, if you’ve seen the film, you totally get.
