That's freaking sweet.  The visuals are awesome!  The song is also nice to listen to.  I often check out New Retro Wave.  I am a New Wave and 1980s synth fan, and that YouTube channel connects me with great NEW 1980s music!

New Retro Wave has helped me find some of my favorite new bands.  If have similar tastes to me and you want to cry out from bliss, check out "Le Cassette".  Here is one of their songs (which has a bit of a freaky ending):
Le Cassette - Arms of Mine (2012):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBNqNle4ikU

Then, you can check out some of my other "Le Cassette" songs like "Radio" and "Electric Paradise".

Then, you might want to check out "The Deepest Blue" from "Kristine".
Kristine - The Deepest Blue (2014):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDf6eXu47YI

These are my recommendations.  I found all of these at New Retro Wave originally.  If you have any other recommendations for me, I would love to hear them.

How can you tell what's real, in a world where huge industries, governments and religions are all trying to force-feed you manufactured realities? Philip K. Dick sums up the challenges of detecting reality in a world that resembles Disneyland, in this great 1978 quote.

Umbrella Beaches, Viareggio, Italy | Earth | Satellite
Time to dream about the umbrella covered beaches of Viareggio, Italy. The city maintains an average temperature of 70.7 °F (21.5 °C) throughout the year.

"The Daily Overview project was inspired, and derives its name, from an idea known as the Overview Effect. This term refers to the sensation astronauts have when given the opportunity to look down and view the Earth as a whole. They have the chance to appreciate our home in its entirety, to reflect on its beauty and its fragility all at once. That's the cognitive shift that we hope to inspire."

Photographer Bio:
Azrafael is a Singaporean who grew up in the island state. He shares a close relationship to the ever changing times and records the present as he sees through his lens conveyed via his thoughts.

His conviction to keep his photography unique in its form probably let his viewers over the years identify it as his signature style.

Ranging from architectural façades, conceptual and sometimes the surreal has made his works synonymous to his tag line ‘Flâneur Fotografi’ which basically means aimless photography with each in its own splendor.

Photography is something which he enjoys doing as a hobby where he began on the classic art form of film photography aesthetics and matures into street photography capturing the lives of his nation folk and those he encounter abroad.

His motto is simply put as "flâneur fotografi".

"The photographer is an armed version of the solitary walker reconnoitering, stalking, cruising the urban inferno, the voyeuristic stroller who discovers the city as a landscape of voluptuous extremes. Adept of the joys of watching, connoisseur of empathy, the flâneur finds the world 'picturesque'", Susan Sontag in her 1977 essay, On Photography.
