Friday Download: January 24, 2014
In this week's Friday Download, I call out a video that revolves around animated, jetski-ridin' aliens, and another video that revolves around a dancing, life-size Barbie doll, so basically it's business as usual here on the internet. —Katie
Ryan Hemsworth tour
So, last summer I saw Ryan Hemsworth at Pitchfork, and his set was pretty awesome. This year, he's setting out on a little tour of his own (dates above). If he's heading to your town, definitely check him out. You'll be able to dance embarrassingly and stare at his cute face, so it's a win/win.

Yakutsk, the coldest city
Hey, it's cold, right? Sucks, man. But if you want to feel better about your current frozen self, just check out these articles about the Russian city Yakutsk. (Or don't, because they're really stressing me out.) For example, Yakutsk is so cold that unless you're properly bundled, you'll only make it about ten minutes outside before your body is like, "Nope," and starts to shut down. It's so cold, that people don't even turn their cars off when they're at work! If this is at all tempting, this Yakutsk travel guide will help get you where you need to go. (Their Cryogenic Laboratory does sound pretty badass.)
D/A/D "Orion Beach"
There's just something about this D/A/D video for "Orion Beach" that makes me feel like fist-pumping my way onto a spaceship or something. I don't even remember how I came across this (Twitter?), but I'm feelin' pretty good that I did. To hear more video game-esque jams from D/A/D, click here.
Life-Size is apparently getting a sequel, and all I can say is IT'S ABOUT TIME.
