Kurt Cobain’s handwritten top 50 albums list could be the makings of such a great playlist.
Look at the late, great Len Bias, dunking on Ron Harper in a 1984 game between Maryland and Miami of Ohio.

The funny thing about street art is how rare it is to see a pedestrian stumble upon a Roa or a Swoon on an urban wall, and, having noticed it, proceed to stop, fold his arms across his chest, and settle in for a good, long viewing. All those ticks—the chin scratches and deep breaths, the things that indicate you’re having an experience with an artwork—are mostly confined to museum and gallery settings. Maybe that’s a good thing, but these days the city IS a gallery, an ever-changing aesthetic backdrop for the comings and goings of our lives.

We know who won. Now what? This issue of Bloomberg Businessweek reports on the road ahead for President Obama as he faces the fiscal cliff and crucial decisions for the future of the economy, business, and defense.

With the onslaught of destruction unleashed on the East Coast this week, you’d be forgiven for never wanting to see another drop of rain for the rest of your life. That said, most of the time, rain is a restorative, live-sustaining aspect of nature. And this fall, Adam Niklewicz's rain-activated mural demonstrated just that. Niklewicz created the 30-by-45-foot mural of the Charter Oak—an important Connecticut symbol—on the brick wall of a former synagogue in Hartford, Connecticut, using water-repellant Rust-Oleum. When wet, the wall reveals the majestic image to the public.

Winters Bone: Taj Burrow and Jake Paterson surf a thumping West Oz beachbreak. Fantastic footage by Shane Dawson. And the New Order track doesn’t hurt one bit.
New Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Not certain how long this will be up or whether it’s really the entire new album or whether the songs are in the proper order, but I’m sure of one thing: I don’t want to listen to anything else.
