Hypnotically watchable, beautifully synchronized, and exactly what it says on the tin. This is magical.
A few years ago I started idly searching Youtube and stumbled over a treasure: offbeat 1980s New Wave and synthpop songs. Some from bands you’ve heard of. Some that you may never have seen. Some which stirred faint memories. Some which were completely new to me. So I started collecting them, and then I started blogging a few. Meanwhile, I started putting them into playlists.
Nate Cull’s cyberpunk rock opera.
Pretty much what it says on the tin.
Astronaut.io is a site that plays a few seconds from YouTube videos with almost no views. It cycles through them randomly and will continue to do so until you stop it. These video clips are simultaneously mundane, and sublime in their ephemerality. I have been putting Astronaut.io on a second screen with the volume down while listening to music and working. It’s the perfect visual background noise, always interesting yet never compelling.

It’s here until 3pm tomorrow. Get it while it’s hot.
Like it says on the tin.
