Slate recently pointed to an ice cubes recipe on Food.com and went: ‘It’s enough to restore one’s faith in Internet commenting.’ We totally agree. Our favourite out of the 450 or so mostly innocuously sarcastic comments: ‘I harvest my own free-range water, so the idea of putting it in a plastic tray and a commercially made electricity-wasting freezer disgusts me. I prefer nature’s method, waiting until the temperature outside drops below freezing.’
A few months ago, I was commissioned by RareInk, a company joining fine art and recording artists for charitable causes, to create an illustration of Ice Cube for their initial launch. The opportunity was of interest to me since Ice Cube’s music had been part of the soundtrack to my formative teenage years. I remember a friend of mine letting me borrow the cassette of Amerikkka’s Most around Eighth grade. I think I still have it.
