YouTube Guide: “World Trade Center Commemorative Time-Lapse”
EarthCam captured a beautiful timelapse of One World Trade Center as it rose from New York City’s Ground Zero from 2010 to today. Plus: Breaking Bad gets an animated intro.
With over 72 hours of footage uploaded every minute, it’s physically impossible to keep track of the content on YouTube. But in YouTube Guide, the Daily Dot will curate its five favorite finds for each workday.
1) EarthCam, “World Trade Center Commemorative Time-Lapse”
Captured over 31 months between Feb. 2010 and Sept. 2012, this EarthCam timelapse of the One World Trade Center construction shows the magnitude of undertaking for those who helped rebuild lower Manhattan’s Ground Zero area.
2) Collective Cadenza, “City Streets, Famous Musicians”
In its 11th opus, the experimental classical music quintet treks around New York City to find streets that match up with the names of some of popular music’s most famous personalities. Then the group plays a bar or two from each figure’s catalog. The list includes George Harrison, Aretha Franklin, the Beach Boys, and, um, Eagle-Eye Cherry.
3) Martin Woutisseth, “Breaking Bad—Illustrated”
What’s a down-on-his-luck graphic designer do when he’s freelancing and looking for work? Takes matters into his own hands. French designer Martin Woutisseth’s reinterpretation of Breaking Bad’s intro segment should hopefully help land him a job or two.
4) Alphacat, “I Don’t Like—Spoof”
The 2012 Presidential campaign is shaping up to be a hot season for Alphacat, YouTube’s premier Barack Obama impersonator. Yesterday, the Louisville, Ky., resident posted ‘I Don’t Like,” a southern rap spoof on the President’s Thursday address at the Democratic National Convention.
5) BoredShortsTV, “Kid Snippets: Basketball Timeout”
This week on Kid Snippets, the best show that exists that involves parents acting out real life scenes as devised by their kids, two basketball players try to devise a strategy during a timeout. Their plan of attack: doughnuts, with sprinkles.
