Tokyo drifts ... cat2525jp has a neat YouTube channel of voyages through Tokyo transit systems, set to electronica. They include timelapse (e.g. Tokyo Bay Aqua-Line), and the lovely mirror effect "Tokyo Sky Drive" series (e.g. 1 2), and povs of high-tech automated parking systems with bowing attendants.

Oh god.. Things are getting all hypnotic and strobey. I think I need to pull over and take a nap.

The mirror effect is very cool. I enjoyed the parking one too. Thanks!

Aw, I thought it was going to be automated bowing attendants -- was looking forward to a chuckle. Instead, I'm merely impressed, maybe a little astonished, at that parking garage. Wow.

Yes I think I needed a comma there, malor. I'm still digging through these; Tokyo Metropolitan Expressway in the early morning 02, to the sound of Underworld is a good one ...

Way awesomer than I expected. Really well-done videos.

These are great but I can't help feeling that they could be faster and/or more furious.
