Getting Spit Out


As we all know, this last week the whole coast of California has been pumping with waves. Up and down the coast the line ups are packed with kids kooking out and others getting barreled. Here’s an interview of a surfer bro stoked!
Here’s the remix… HA

BEACHxRATS

I fell asleep on the beach this morning after a wild ride of a night, consisting of homemade tattoo’s and tribal dances. Rising with the glaring sun blasting out my eyes a figure began to approach me. As the shadow grew in front of me I could tell it was a lady. “Pardon me sir,” she says “I think you should have this.” She began to hand me something, but i couldn’t keep my eyes off these perfect tits dripping with salt water right in front of my face. It took a second to process, then I gave her a smile and took the CD she was holding in front my face. As she walked away in the glistening sun her butt cheeks smiled at me and I swear I saw a halo floating  above her head. Seconds later I looked into my hand holding a CD that read BEACHxRATS – WE ARE ANIMALZ. I got to a CD player fast, still dribbling about the beach goddess who approached me from heaven minutes before. Right when it started I knew it truly was a gift from god. Get After It!

Tim Burton @ LACMA

The man behind modern classics such as Edward Scissorhands and The Nightmare Before Christmas unleashes a retrospective art exhibition that covers 27 years of his creative output.  The show opens at LACMA this coming Sunday, May the 25th.  Covering much more than just his film work, this comprehensive exhibit will showcase hundreds of examples of paintings and drawings from his personal collection that were never meant to be displayed.  Burton’s illustrations, with their fucked-up proportions and ragged lines, are interestingly more Steadmanesqe than you might have thought.  The sheer breadth of drawings and doodles on display makes this less of a fine art exhibit and more of a look inside the imagination this singular artist.  Go experience his stream of consciousness.  On view through October 31.
