On the YouTubes: Floating Over Reston

If you like trippy New Age music and fever dream-like panoramic views of Google Earth, only with more clouds, this fancy video is for you. As a bonus, click through to find similar presentations of such metropoli as Plainfield, Illinois and Maple Heights, Ohio. Sweet!

(Shout out to the Peasant From Less Sought After South Reston for the find.)


  1. Uh oh, I hope this doesn't mean there are killer drones over our town - what the heck was that at the very end? Look dronish to me. That kite thing was a bit bizarre as well, but at least doesn't have the killing potential - I don't think.

  2. That "drone" was the new propeller-driven, approved eggshell white Reston Association headquarters, with offices, a legion of filing cabinets, a juicery and a tennis court. If you look closely you can see pool passes being flown to their respective members via spotted dove. No shit.

  3. Or was it just the new super-secret DRB spy drone that will make sure even the parts of your house only viewable by air are in compliance with DRB code?

  4. I think the music in the background sounds like this is probably a targeting video shot for Al Qaeda...

  5. Not the Reston, Va I fly over. Lots of geo errors in this.
