Wisdom: Alexandra Florence

North Shore, Oahu

If you’ve seen Bladerunner as many times as I have, then you’re likely just as convinced as I am that our future will take place entirely in skyscrapers (and in off-world colonies). There’s only so much available land out there, so, up, up, up we go. But where to put the wavepools that we’ll all

Video Quest

Deconstructing our world through surf videos

Of all the movies in which aliens learn everything they know about life on Earth from watching our TV shows and films, Galaxy Quest is by far the best. Tim Allen acts his ass off as the star of a hokey space-adventure drama modeled on Star Trek. A hapless planet full of literally humorless aliens
