Ain’ That Swell Raido is brought to us by two good Aussie mates Jed Smith and Vaughan Blakey. If you are a surf junkie like I am you will enjoy their soundcloud breakdown of the latest in surf gossip and happenings. Australians have such a great sense of humor that I appreciate so if you are not used to listening to their point of view you may love it or you may hate it. Whatever the case listen in and they break it down like no other American journalists would. Enjoy

Bryan Nash Gill’s photo-realistic large scale prints from the cross-sections of trees are stunning. Through relief printing and a laborious rubbing technique, Gill translates the actual scale (some prints being over 4 feet wide), texture and pattern of the wood grain onto paper. Each detail is delicately imprinted, forming an intimate map of tree rings, not only revealing the age of the tree, but the unique cracks and insect holes are a document of each specimen’s life. Unfortunately, Gill passed away last year.

Shake and the Creditor hit the town.
Okay, I’m not going to lie. I have a Diablo III Demon Hunter that has like a hundred something Paragon levels. In short, I’ve dedicated too many hours to a computer chair. Don’t judge me. I know you guys are just looking at cats on Tumblr, online shopping, and binge watching entire seasons of television shows on Netflix.
