New York’s hottest club is Paul Ryan’s freezing DC balcony

This is a live stream of the view from Paul Ryan's balcony at the US Capitol Building. From an aesthetic standpoint, it's almost meditative. The grounds are covered in a fresh layer of snow; everything seems calm, untouchable; much of the city has taken refuge indoors. And then, you hear it: an erratic, funky bassline, disco-era guitars, and percussion made for rollerblading in your tiny shorts. This, my friends, is a lesson in perfect juxtaposition. A scene made of quiet dreams, soundtracked by what may be the catchiest song in the world. Paul Ryan's probably in there shaking a leg next to a fireplace, and you should be too. Watch the video now, for it may only last as long as the snow.
