Selectism | Around the Web

01. 2010 US Open of Surfing

“The U.S. Open of Surfing is a week-long surfing competition held annually during the summer in Huntington Beach, California.” (usopenofsurf)

02. Grass Fed | Korean in Massachusetts

“The Pioneer Valley, home to a whole mess of Western Massachusetts’s finest higher-education operations, is not a bad place to eat per se. But I know from friends who live or have lived there that the options can feel limited. So I was stoked, when passing through last week, to be taken to a restaurant that I hadn’t heard of and actually liked: Gohyang Korean Restaurant, a shoebox of a place on Route 9. There’s no reason why there shouldn’t, couldn’t or wouldn’t be a good Korean restaurant there, but I was quietly thrilled about it.” (tmag)

03. The Creators Project Romain Gavras

“Romain Gavras is the guy who made that disturbing music video for Justice that got under people’s skins. Most recently, and controversially, he made a video for M.I.A featuring ginger genocide. He founded, with Kim Chapiron, the lo-fi French film and art collective Kourtrajmé Productions, which has close to 140 members. We met up with him to talk film, music and creativity.” (cp)

04. America in Color from 1939-1943 (above)

“These images, by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information, are some of the only color photographs taken of the effects of the Depression on America’s rural and small town populations.” (coudal>denverpost)
