Humpty Would Love This

Posted in design with tags , on May 30, 2008 by Jarrod

Check out this beautifully designed egg-shaped office building which is scheduled to create a huge impact on the architectural world in 2010. Located in Mumbai, India, the 13 story structure will contain a rooftop garden to diffuse heat from the surface and bathrooms that have the ability to take users’ temperatures, blood pressure and body weight, then if necessary, send the information to a doctor. I’m serious, I’m not making this stuff up.

Here is Kanye’s 3rd version for his song “Flashing Lights” off of his Graduation album. This one might be the most vague out of the three with the whole Clue x The Adams Family thing going. I likely the artistic direction but am left a little perplexed by its meaning.

Air Jordan Fusion III

Posted in Sneaker Culture with tags on May 28, 2008 by Jarrod

Let me make this perfectly clear; I absolutely abhor the hybrid Jordan x Air Force Ones that have been ever so popular in recent months. Now with that being said, I feel very embarrassed to say that I really like these shoes even though most Jordan purists will scream blasphemy when reading this. Even though the elephant print has become quite stale due to overuse over the past couple of years, its implementation here seems fresh. These are undoubtedly the best rendition of the whole Fusion idea. The first couple of colors are set to release on July 4th with the rest being released through September.
