Architecture and politics - two more reasons to love Moby:
i’m including today’s house for a few simple reasons:
- i was driving down a random street in hollywood and i saw this nice little house and decided to stop for 90 seconds and be a creepy house voyeur and take some pictures.
- it’s an unexceptional, albeit very nice, mid-century house. and i really like the fact that l.a has an abundance of unexceptional, although very nice, mid-century houses.
- to continue with ‘2’, i like the fact that there are enough nice mid-century houses in l.a that you can drive by them and only give them a passing, glancing bit of attention. a simple, ‘oh, look, a nice mid-century house. huh.’ and i’m stating the obvious, but there aren’t too many cities possessed of an abundance of nice mid-century houses.
- see 1, 2, and 3.
- i like lists.
- i’ll be honest, these few pictures don’t really do the house justice. it wasn’t an unexceptional mid-century house. it was a really, really nice mid-century house, all suspended on steel posts and surrounded by trees. maybe i’m saying it was ‘unexceptional’ because my pictures aren’t so great.
- to wit: exceptional house. unexceptional pictures. mea culpa. self-flagellation. etc.
- i think the list has become as long as it needs to be.
- mitt romney’s wife, ann, spent over $70,000 on her dressage horse’s care last year. oh, wait, no, WE (the taxpayers) spent over $70,000 on mitt romney’s dressage horse, as the $70,000+ that they spent on their dressage horse was a tax deduction. considering that we (the taxpayers) spent over $70,000 on mitt romney’s fancy horse last year shouldn’t we at least get to ride around on it every now and then?
- yes, ‘9’ had nothing to do with architecture. but it’s an election year and mitt romney scares the bejeezus out of me. i mean, far be it for me to judge, but he seems to have no soul.
