notice that this one is called: The Eames. “A husband and wife team.” Though he refers to them in their usual order “Charles and Ray Eames” the language seems to speak of them more as a unit.

I saw this awhile back and thought there was also some interesting things going on “back-stage”. For instance, this is a video meant to reinvigorate the cultural history of Los Angeles through the voice of a culturally relevant contemporary representative of L.A. Cool. The language Cube uses to describe his awe before the ingenuity of the Eames’ is telling…as does the fact that its shot in black and white.

“the 45…that’s bourgey traffic…the 110…haha…that’s gansta traffic right there…there’s a difference…you gotta know where you’re at…”
