Where to Hide Your Secret Stash

I saw this cool photo from this site. Aside from the hidden drawer under the table, there are some other surprises that the inventor thought of. Just visit the original post to see more.

A drawer disguised as plywood laminate opens 
with the use of a magnetic London souvenir, kept on the desk.

Interesting thoughts from YiTing, the inventor:

This project is about concealing valuables, secrets, bad habits and personal information in our workplaces. Here, hidden spaces/messages were created within 8 general objects such as wood boards, lamps and disposable coffee cups... How? Utilize stereotypes and visual camouflage. We make judgments based mainly on our experiences and what we see. This dependency on visual information can create large blind spots. Thus, usual stereotypes of how we perceive solid, transparency and lighting are employed in this project to play with notions of 'solid and void', and 'true and false'.

Black Eyed Peas’ Will.I.Am Pens Song For “Knight And Day”

Black Eyed Peas’ pens a song entitled “Someday” in Tom Cruise’s latest action film “Knight and Day.” The Black Eyed Peas debuted the song by spinning it at an after-party that followed their concert at London’s O2 Arena last May 27. Related video for the song may be viewed via

In the sexy action-comedy “Knight and Day”, Tom Cruise is a covert agent sent on a mission he was never meant to complete, and Cameron Diaz is a woman caught between the agent and those he claims set him up. As their globetrotting adventure erupts into a maze of double-crosses, close escapes and false identities, they come to realize that all they can count on is each other.

Directed by James Mangold (Walk the Line, 3:10 to Yuma), “Knight and Day” also stars Peter Sarsgaard, Viola Davis, Paul Dano, Maggie Grace, and Marc Blucas. The screenplay is by Patrick O’Neill and James Mangold, from a story by Patrick O’Neill. The producers are Cathy Konrad, Steve Pink and Todd Garner.

The Black Eyed Peas – will., Fergie, and Taboo -- have transcended their vigilant hip-hop roots and have become a global phenomenon, the likes of which the music world has rarely seen. Six-time Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum Interscope recording group The Black Eyed Peas are currently on their The E.N.D. World Tour with their fifth studio album. The E.N.D. is the ‘Black Eyed Peas’ current album with sales of over 2.5 million in the U.S., worldwide sales of more than 7 million copies.

With 2003’s breakthrough album Elephunk, and Fergie’s entry into the lineup, the Peas became international superstars. The album spun off the worldwide #1 hit “Where Is the Love,” “Shut Up,” “Hey Mama,” and “Let’s Get It Started,” which won the Black Eyed Peas their first Grammy Award, for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. Monkey Business extended and surpassed its predecessor, fueled by the back-to-back chart sensations “Don’t Phunk With My Heart” and “My Humps.”

With worldwide sales in excess of 26 million units and a total of 16 Grammy Award nominations, The Black Eyed Peas are one of the most successful recording groups to date.

“Knight and Day” will open June 24-Thursday in more than 150 theaters in the Philippines from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
