2011 from hey_rabbit on Vimeo.

If you've ever wondered what life in Los Angeles is like, Vimeo user Hey_Rabbit is here to help. Madeline Schichtel took a one second video snapshot of every single day of 2011, and this is the result.

You can watch her drive (it is Los Angeles after all), play with cats, attend NBA games, eat artichokes and try out new hairstyles. It's a charming portrait of an accessible life, and while Madeline says she fell ill a few times and worked a lot, there's something joyous about the compilation of video snapshots.

The video is masterfully set to an LCD Soundsystem song, which lends a perfect backdrop to the cadence of Madeline's year. We're big fans of the ending, but we'd like to know what you think!

Watch it, and let us know your thoughts in the comments section below. Would your life look much different than hers? How?
