Going Once, Going Twice” is a fun Philly-based video by Fionn McLaughlin that’s light on the Muni and heavy on the crust. (Feel like there was another recent-ish homie video that ended with “Dirty Work” as well? Perfect homie video song.)

“Filmmaker Tyler Smolinski has given it the thing that makes it infinitely rewatchable: heart.

  1. Asphalt gets hard by cooling, so “cure” time is longer in warm weather. This doesn’t make it stronger but does give the pavers more time to lay it out well. Concrete on the other hand gets hard by the chemical reaction of the cement and water, so cold weather gives a longer cure time and more strength by retaining moisture. People cover concrete to keep the water in there when it’s hot and to keep it from freezing when it’s cold, which kills the reaction.
