WHEREIN: We bring you the developments (happening in and around DC) that we think are newsworthy, or, at the very least, almost newsworthy.

- NPR needed a way to move their Tiny Desk from to their new location north of the Capitol – So they got OK Go to play “All Is Not Lost” 223 times while they moved. You should watch the video. (via NPR)

- Hillary Clinton pitched a new show idea about her Pantsuits to Bravo! called “Project Pantsuit”, and we’re not even joking. While supporting friend Oscar de la Renta at the CFDA awards on Monday, she jokingly remarked that the country might need a show that would “fill that gap that is so apparent to some of us. All you really need is a small, but passionate audience to be successful. We could call it Project Pantsuit.” Andy Cohen of the Bravo! Network responded saying, “Project Pantsuit is totally a go. Madeleine Albright is doing the first challenge.” I’m hoping this is one of those “I was totally kidding, unless you’re serious” situations. (via Refinery29)
- The Washington Post is going to start charging some of its readers a monthly fee of $9.99 for access to its online content.

(via Washington Post)
- You know that sinkhole at 14th and F? Of course you do – your ass hurts everyday, because there’s a huge pain in it. Guess what: It’s HUGE!
