Speaking of LA, have you seen this little film of Ice Cube talking about architecture in Los Angeles? It's kind of fantastic. He apparently studied architectural drafting before going into rap. He speaks specifically about Charles and Ray Eames, and I love his observations. "They was doing mash-ups before mash-ups even existed."
Thanks to Anna of Door Sixteen for bringing both of these lovely things to my attention! She caught the doc at the IFC Center in New York and loved it, which makes me all the more excited to see it myself.
