Can you imagine being on tour with Nirvana and Sub Pop Records in the early, formative hay days — in Europe no less? For some strange and inexplicable reason, none of these photos from the 1989 European tour have been published in print until now. Here they are for the first time, along with snippets of Pavitt’s tour diaries from the road. They are excerpts from the new book Experiencing Nirvana: Grunge in Europe, 1989, out November 14 from Bazillion Points Books. Click the link below to see the full article on Vice.www.vice.com
I am watching this footage in a little 4 inch box on a 15 inch laptop monitor, but it still makes me want to poop my pants. How are there possibly waves this big? And how could human beings possibly want to ride them? This shit is just plain gnarly. Click on the cute little doll, watch this video and have toilet paper ready.
An interesting black & white short composed of concerts around the world in 2013. It’s cool to see the raw performance and crowd energy in contrast to such a mellow Kings of Convenience tune. Featuring concert clips from Major Lazer, Ghostland Observatory, Zedd, Kaskade, 50 Cent, Matt & Kim, Phoenix, Diplo, Skrillex, Bloc Party, Peter Goetz, Calvin Harris, Dillon Francis, and Porter Robinson.
The link between surfing and snowboarding has never been so beautifully captured and conveyed until this segment of Into The Mind. DCP’s Surf/Snowboard Segment (from Into the Mind) is a visual exploration of water’s behaviour in various states, and an inquisition to its effect on those who interact with it. Featuring legendary snowboarder DCP (David Carrier Porcheron), as he surfs and snowboards interior British Columbia and Nicaragua, this segment lulls the viewer into that wonderful and content state of hypnosis experienced while riding pow. The segment also features scenes of mountaineering savant Conrad Anker, Kayaking guru Rush Sturges, freestyle wizard Tom Wallisch (stomping his first attempt at a triple), all set in various locations ranging from Tofino, Whistler/Blackcomb, Montana, and beyond. Music: “Better Days” by Graham Nash. Check out the rest of this beautiful film here:www.itunes.apple.com/movie/into-the-mind
Most people take really shitty iPhone videos of stuff they think is funny when they are drunk, stupid things their babies or pets do, but these videos mostly stink. Some people post some 7 second gems to Vine or Instagram, but for the most part, most peoples’ iPhone videos stink. Morgan Maasen is not most people. His iPhone gets to see some pretty awesome stuff and hang with some pretty rad folks. While these clips are well lit and composed — as every pro photog’s imagery should be, they are still very personal, spontaneous, and endearing moments captured. Here is a 10 minute glimpse into what young Morgan has been privy to in the last year, through the humble lens of his mobile phone. Enjoy, and be jealous.www.morganmaassen.com
Warwick Wright AKA Wok is a South-African ripper who is full of personality. He is also good friends with other pro rippers such as Jordy Smith and Taj Burrow. In this interweb film, other good buddy and fellow South African living in London, Peter Hamblin chooses Wok as his muse, following him on his travels for a wild week of surf and goofing off. Peter owns and runs Hamblin Imagery in London, which is why the production value of this web video looks so great for being shot and produced with no budget (the story of our lives, single tear…). Enjoy!www.wrightsideofwrong.tv
This week’s dose of surf porn takes us to a more “unexpected” location in Europe. “The Endless Wave” is a short film documenting the rapidly increasing scene of the Eisbach River in the City of Munich (Muenchen) in Bavaria. People will surf anything, anywhere.

Bringing new meaning to the phrase, “it’s funny because it’s true”, Workwankers hit’s the nail on the head with all of the people who drive you mad at your cushy ad job. If you have ever worked in advertising, or any creative industry for that matter, you will probably get a good chuckle out of this site. You know who they are, now you know what to call them behind their backs.www.workwankers.com
What is art, what is it worth and who the fuck cares? British street artist Banksy sets up a pop-up stall in New York’s Central Park, selling original signed canvases of his work. Some of the work is estimated to be worth around $300k, despite this, the artist only made $420 in a day from the stall. I wonder what the price tags and crowd would be like if these were at some hip gallery downtown? This comes right after his other awesome NYC stunt, the “Sirens of the lambs”…http://www.youtube.com/Bansky
Joe G does it again with this beautifully art directed and styled short for Globe called ‘Ice Cream’. The style is reminiscent of Nacho Libre or Machette, only it is a surf trip tale featuring Dion Agius. Que bueno. Ice Cream is an experimental journey into the Mexican unknown. There’s a gringo in town who’s delivering icy hot vibes… Silhouetted by a monolithic mansion with rolling waves of pleasure. High atop El Patron a girl sits lost, lonely, and bewildered. Beyond the horizon a maiden approaches. Their union is imminent, reborn within another. Together, the journey begins…. ahhh… que’ linda.www.globe.tv
