If only it were that quick and easy to trot around the globe.

An air passenger recently documented his/her flight from Tokyo to San Francisco, documenting the long-ass flight that, thanks to technology, only appeared to take 83 seconds. This is an impressive showing, considering it takes about 10-plus hours to get between the two world-class cities.

According to the creators, it took 3,400 separate images to make the time-lapse video, which starts at Narita Airport in Tokyo and ends at SFO.

Sit back and enjoy the flight:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
