Ice Cube Fish Tank Design by Arthur Xin


Ice-Cube-Tank-Design-by-Arthur-Xin ice_fishing_bowl

This creative Ice Cube Fish Tank is designed by Arthur Xin for Treecorona. Arthur came up with this concept of using more glass material for a thicker and more obscured form. The object is based on a cuboid shape, but takes the appearance of a drink chiller that has begun to melt down its middle. The hollow Ice Cube Fishbowl is left with an open top to provide easy access to the scaly creatures inside of it. It only looks natural with water filled up to the brim.

Ice Cube Celebrates The Eames.


Ice Cube Celebrates The Eames for Pacific Standard Time the birth of the LA art scene. As he drives Inglewood blvd. describing the Los Angeles that he knows, he talks of landmarks like The Forum, Five Torches, Cockatoo Inn, Brolly Hut, and Watts Towers. He refers to the 110 as “Gangsta Highway”. Cube says coming from South Central LA teaches you how to be resourceful. He walks the Eames House perimeter, through the Eames living room, and sitting in the Eames lounge chair. He brings us back to his NWA years when he studied architectural drafting before launching his rap career. One thing he learned that translates is to always have a plan. Cube describes the modern, green and resourceful building design of Charles and Ray Eames. Visionaries of connecting nature and structure. “Who are these people who got a problem with LA? Maybe they mad cuz they don’t live here.”

The New 21 Jump Street.


Click the pic to watch the trailer.

Anyone who grew up with a TV in the late 80’s and early 90’s knows about ’21 Jump Street’.  A massively popular show, it was one of the pieces of work that helped start Johnny Depp’s career.  The show centered around a team of youthful looking police officers that investigated crimes in high school and college.  As is the usual in Hollywood, a movie reboot was a must, but instead of totally destroying the legacy of the show (like Dukes of Hazzard, Starsky and Hutch… the list goes on) I personally feel like this remake might just be worth watching.  Click the pic above to watch the trailer, and look below for the official synopsis.

In the action-comedy 21 Jump Street, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) are more than ready to leave their adolescent problems behind. Joining the police force and the secret Jump Street unit, they use their youthful appearances to go undercover in a local high school. As they trade in their guns and badges for backpacks, Schmidt and Jenko risk their lives to investigate a violent and dangerous drug ring. But they find that high school is nothing like they left it just a few years earlier – and neither expects that they will have to confront the terror and anxiety of being a teenager again and all the issues they thought they had left behind.
