Our friends at Volcom just released a special Featured Artist colletion with Los Angeles-based artist Mike Parillo. Mike creates a fantastic blend of abstract and rich paintings, and its pretty cool that the style has been applied to a bunch of different gear, including mens hats, tees, women's bathing suits,men's boardshorts towels, belts, and more. Watch the video, and shop the collection.

I don't want to nerd out too much here, but I like Shakespeare, and Macbeth scares the hell out of me. It's simply this story in terms of content: "Set in Scotland, the play illustrates the damaging physical and psychological effects of political ambition on those who seek power for its own sake." But its also a mystery when it comes to the theater, a mystical piece if you will full of ritual and superstition (its the Scottish Play, remember). This remake from Justin Kurzel starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard looks pretty amazing, and will be released later this Fall.

Chinese animator Wong Ping has one of the most wonderfully bizarre imaginations we've encountered. Where his ideas come from we don't know, but we love his animations and always look forward to seeing more. This latest one, called "An Emo Nose," explores his loneliness after his nose tragically decides to leave him. As a result of his nose being gone he loses interest in any kind of social activity and actually starts to enjoy the loneliness as he observes the ugliness of people around him.

Our friends at Volcom are getting set to release a new surf video that we got a teaser for this morning. Mostly, this just makes us wish we can get out of the office and head to a beach summer and do some of what you see here. Oh wait, its Friday, we may already be doing it and you don't know?

Guy Bourdin was a painter and legendary fashion photographer whose style has been pervasively appropriated in pop culture. Mentored by Man Ray, he avoided the limelight, focusing strictly on the creation of arresting pictures. Despite staging surreal mise en scènes for high-end brands like Vogue, fashion was the last thing on his mind. Sometimes, on the set of his shoots, Bourdin would bring out a super-8 cine camera, an example of which you can watch above.

Steve Ramsden noticed acted upon a hunch that a lot of us had thought: Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" have some similar vibes to them. Of course, Anderson and Kubrick are both extremely detailed orientated with their sets and shots, and Anderson is definitely influenced by Kubrick, but Mr Ramsden has made a parody trailer of what could be Wes Anderson's "The Shining."

In this video for Conny Franko's "Virgin Shirley Temple," Mexican animator and artist Salvador Herrera attempts to materialize a glimpse of the experience of taking salvia. Within Shirley's mind, as a constant and persistent idea, appear beings who represent concepts of her education, indicating the child to become an object of desire as war goes on around them like a children game, throwing atomic bombs to demonstrate power.

Through archival footage and conversations with Emory, this new short documentary by Dress Code shares his story, alongside the rise and fall of the Panthers. He used his art as a weapon in the Black Panther Party’s struggle for civil rights and today Emory continues to give a voice to the voiceless. His art and what The Panthers fought for are still as relevant as ever.
