"Hal Lasko worked as a typographer for decades in an age when everything
was analog and drawn by hand. But after retiring, the 97-year-old
switched up his medium and turned digital creating art using only MS
Paint. Although legally blind due to a disorder called wet muscular
degeneration, being able to zoom in on small sections has allowed him to
continue working long after he thought his painting days were through. 'If it takes me two years, I can spend it. I’ve got a lot of patience –
that’s what you really need,' says Lasko. In fact, he spends ten hours a
day moving pixels around his computer paintings. His work is a blend of
pointillism and 8-Bit art. Meet 97-year-old Hal Lasko, The Pixel

"In a fleet of brightly colored Jeeps filled with
surfboards, skateboards, music equipment, art supplies and crates of
Carlton Dry, the RVCA Caravan made its way from Byron Bay to Sydney. It
was a two-week adventure that brought together a group of multifaceted
RVCA advocates to inspire each other creatively and just go where the
wind blows. The Caravan was loose, and the crew was an eclectic and
eccentric group who don’t normally find themselves on the same program:
surfers Alex Knost, Makua Rothman, Ford Archbold, Ellis Ericson and Dino
Adrian; skaters Josh Harmony, Kevin “Spanky” Long, and Julian Davidson;
artists Kelsey Brookes, Dmote, Benjamin Jean Jean and Mark Alsweiler;
womens advocates Ashley Smith and Margaux Aaramon Tucoo. Everyone coming
together from different backgrounds and various places in the world to
share their passion for life, adventure, art and music.

"Petrolicious presents this video depicting Randy Balingit-Hartmann cruising in his BMW M5.
The story is that Randy bought the first BMW M5 brought to San Diego
back in 1989 and has since clocked over 400,000 miles in it and by the
looks of the car’s performance, there is still plenty more left where
that came from much like its owner. The car has accompanied Randy for 24
years through all of the literal and figurative twists and bends life
has taken him.
'I’ve never had any mechanical issues with the car, and believe me, I
drive it like I stole it every single day,' Randy says, no doubt a
testament to that generation’s level of German engineering."
