Jumping shark


A fisherman who watched a 2.7-metre great white shark land in his boat has downplayed the experience, calling it “just a mundane thing”. Terry Selwood, 73, was caught by surprise while fishing off Evans Head, on the north coast of New South Wales, Australia, on Saturday afternoon when the shark launched itself into his 4.5-metre boat.
 The shark’s pectoral fin hit Selwood on his forearm and knocked him on to his hands and knees as it scaled the boat’s engine and landed on the floor.

The Evolution of Landscape Painting and How Contemporary Artists Keep It Alive

Clair Bremner

  Artists choose landscapes as their subjects for a variety of reasons. In addition to wanting to represent or replicate their obvious beauty, some artists opt to create these depictions to study and explore various aesthetic elements, like light, color, and texture. Additionally, some artists also use scenes of nature as a way to tell a story, illustrate an idea, or conceptualize a metaphor.
 Tracing the genre's evolution and looking at well-known landscape paintings throughout history enables one to visually recognize these differences and understand where contemporary landscape painters may find their inspiration.

Some of us still miss the ritual of going to a video store.


One Houston, Texas-based VHS collector has taken his nostalgia for the video store experience to a level of awesome that most would never consider. He has recreated an ‘80s style video store in his basement. Jason Champion’s Champion Video is a fully-functional video rental outlet that issues memberships and boasts over 4,500 titles. Lots of people have basement “man-caves,” but it’s really something else to completely recreate a specific environment that harkens back to a simpler time. I’ve got to hand it to Mr. Champion, this is beyond cool.
