David Maisel’s aerial photographs of open mines questions  how human activity transforms land through industrial effort. Although beautifully photographed these images are reminders of how we destroy and pollute our planet for money and power.

A Day In Decay: Wavves & Best Coast

Last night I surprised the wife by taking her to the Wavves & Best Coast show at the Music Box here in LA. I have to admit that the main reason we went was to see Best Coast but Wavves stole the show with one of the best live performances I’ve seen in a while. You may be asking yourself “I wonder if they had pyrotechnics,mcrazy costumes, or a kick ass light show?” The answer is No. There act was simple. Get the 3 members on stage,  play as fast and as hard as you can, and don’t give a fuck. It’s a simple formula that is highly underrated in this age of costume changes and theatrics. Wavves killed every last song like their lives depended on it. They thrashed around, threw alien shaped beach balls and silly string at the crowd, and banged their heads like crazy rock muppets long overdue for a haircut.  Their performance was a testament of how fun it is to be young&free and reminded me to fight the urge of turning into a crabby and cranky old man.

Ray Young Chu’s Cat Cereal

Ray Young Chu makes beautifully detailed paintings that don’t take themselves too seriously. Cute animals and laughter are always a good mix in my book.

Awesome Video Of The Day: Nephicide

This video reminded me of my 5th grade teacher who told my mom that If I kept listening to Metallica and Anthrax, and continued to skateboard that I would turn into a devil worshipping drug addict. Her nut job predictions didn’t come true since I became an atheist drug free vegan. Go figure. Watch the full video after the jump.
