The search for the perfect wave never dies.

Surfing just lost its filmmaker: Bruce Brown, director of The Endless Summer, has died at 80.

Brown never understood why the film caught on so widely. One of the surfers from the film told the Los Angeles Times in 1991, “In the Vietnam era, everybody needed something like that. God, you felt good when you left the theater.”

Endless Summer is a classic; you can stream it on Netflix. We love this lesser-known Brown film, Surfing Hollow Days, which contains the first footage of somebody surfing Hawaii's Pipeline break (jump to 1:05:30).

Coincidentally, the World Title is being fought for at Pipeline as we speak, with Kelly Slater staging a comeback of sorts.

Spotify just named "serialism" as one of the year's "biggest emerging genres." And we're a little surprised? That something so Schoenberg-loving is in there?

Jean Barraqué's "Le Temps Restitué," excerpted in the video above, is an example of what'll be competing with "cinematic dubstep" and "chaotic black metal next year."

For what it's worth, here's a Spotify-assembled serialism playlist:

Routing apps + ride-share apps = previously quiet neighborhoods turned into dangerous traffic zones.
