This is like Man on Wire, but thousands of feet in the air. Further proof that French people are insane.
Some fantastic drone footage of Pipeline by Eric Sterman. I'm looking forward to the evolution of drone footage in outdoor sports!
Liverpool-based trio All We Are have released a song so catchy that it has buried its way into my brain and will not leave... I go to sleep humming it and wake up humming it. Beware if you decide to watch the trippy for 'Utmost Good' more than once, it'll stay with you too.
Some really fun and slightly warped pop-culture-inspired paintings by Flemish artist Brecht Vandenbroucke.
A sexy video for a sexy song.
Travelling-enthusiast Emily Heath and her husband James have started a fantastic photographic blog, documenting their travels everywhere from Iceland to India to Incan villages. They started jumping in photos out of the sheer joy of finding themselves in so many amazing locations, and then it quickly developed into a fun ongoing project. I am getting the travel bug just looking at these.
