magnatism

FACEBOOK: La red social donde las enfermedades se curan compartiendo y con likes, donde todos opinan y dicen la verdad y tienen la razón siempre, donde todos presumen vivir como magnates o rockstars, donde todos son el megaultrafan conocedor y representante del artista o figura pública que falleció recientemente, donde algunos dicen vivir en Italia, Portugal, Canadá o de paseo en China, Francia o Australia pero te los encuentras en la cola de las tortillas. Donde demuestran estar muy enamorados de sus parejas, donde los que te envidian te tienen bloqueado pero te visitan de otros perfiles para copiarte, donde los que solían ser tus amigos de años te borran, donde tus exparejas te eliminan con todo y amigos en común. Donde escribes una cosa y la gente interpreta lo que su complejo le permite comprender o hasta donde Dios le da a entender. Qué bonito es Facebook.

¡Ah! Y donde todos son modelos, fotógrafos, dj’s, animalovers pero, ojo, “no son del montón”.

The house wasn’t built for a Russian oligarch, although it looked the part. The 62,000-square-foot, 17-bedroom mansion is a palace of new-money flash, featuring Greek fountains, tennis courts, trompe l’oeil murals, underground parking for dozens of cars, and a 100-foot swimming pool and hot tub overlooking the ocean. It even had a faux-aristocratic name: “Maison de l’Amitie,” or the House of Friendship. It was the trophy of a Boston-area nursing home magnate, until he lost his fortune in 2004. That’s when Donald Trump scooped it up.

After paying $41 million for the place in November 2004, Trump called it “the finest piece of land in Florida, and probably the U.S.” He vowed to upgrade the structure into “the second-greatest house in America.” (Second, of course, to his nearby Mar-a-Lago resort.) But Trump had no intention of living there. He intended to flip it for a quick—and huge—profit. His initial asking price, less than two years after buying it, was $125 million. By the time Trump listed the property, in early 2006, the real estate market was already cooling off. The property sat on the market for about two years as a frustrated Trump churned through real estate brokers and slashed his price 20 percent. It wasn’t at all clear who might pay Trump three times his buying price for a neoclassical palace amid a looming recession.

In the summer of 2008, Trump found a solution to his problem in the form of one of the world’s hundred richest men: a 41-year-old Russian billionaire named Dmitry Rybolovlev.

Magnetosphere by Lefteris Tsampikakis (via May The Force Be With You | Yanko Design)

As silly as it may sound, magnets make things seem magical. You can know all about magnetism, but when you see a clean design that just work, just snaps shut, just hovers, or just stays attached there’s a part of you the still goes “wow.” Even if only for a second, you cynics. Magnetosphere is a fully adjustable desk lamp that is magnetically mounted to its spherical bade. I’ve recently been really interested in the use of wood contrasted by more industrial materials. Especially on contact points in as a way to add warmth and wear to a design. While I often heard magnets used as a shallow solution to a design problem at university, this is a novel and clever use of it’s forces.

“If I could propound something; you took that didn’t you?” He pointed to the wand and cocked his head. “I’m not here to inculpate you. Just curious.”

Todd Haberman’s New Score for ‘Satanic’ Is To Die For!

Rising composer aims to take over Hollywood one scream at a time

Excited to make the most of their voyage, the group plans a couple of stops before reaching their final destination, the Coachella Music & Arts Festival. Their trip takes an unexpected turn when they stop in Los Angeles to check out true-crime occult sites and encounter a mysterious young runaway who puts them on a terrifying path to the ultimate horror.

Something unearthly has been laying dormant for decades and is now free to terrorize and destroy all in its path.

Pittsburgh, PA: Coal barges on the Monongahela River with the Wabash Bridge in the background. 1910.

The Wabash Bridge was a railroad bridge across the Monongahela River at Pittsburgh. Constructed between 1902 and 1904 by railroad magnate George J. Gould for his Wabash Pittsburgh Terminal Railway.

The terminal and warehouses were destroyed by fire in 1946 and the bridge was demolished in 1948 after years of neglect. The steel from the bridge was used in the construction of the Dravosburg Bridge in 1948.

Two piers remain in place today, the only remnants of the bridge still in place at the original site.

The Wabash Tunnel, which carried the railroad through the hills south of the Monongahela River, sat abandoned for more than 50 years before reopening to one-way auto traffic in 2004.

FAIRYTALE CASTLES IN USA

Castles in America have been creatively reinvented. These castles were built in the 19th and early 20th centuries by millionaires as residences or purely for folly. Though they’re not nearly as old as the fortresses that dot the European countryside, many of their designs were inspired by centuries of European castles. 


1. BOLDT Castle - New York

Boldt Castle was built in 1900 by hotel magnate George C. Boldt as a summer dream home for his wife. He hired 300 stonemasons, carpenters and artists to build the six-story 120-room structure that also features Italian gardens, a turreted powerhouse, a dove-cote as well as the finest imported Italian marble, Oriental rugs and French silks money could buy.

2. HEARST Castle - California

Built between 1919 and 1947 for newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst. Hearst nicknamed the estate ‘La Cuesta Encantada’ (‘The Enchanted Hill’ in Spanish). Hearst Castle comprised of four buildings, 165 rooms and 127 acres of beautiful terraced gardens. 

3. LYNDHURST Castle - New York

This magnificent, romantic Gothic Revival mansion was designed by Alexander Jackson Davis in 1838. The architectural brilliance of the residence is complemented by the surrounding park-like landscape featuring sweeping lawns, a rose garden and fernery as well as a wealth original decorative arts. 

4. BLITMORE Castle - North Carolina

This former mansion of George Washington Vanderbilt is so big that it even has its own winery along with spectacular, manicured gardens across the 8,000-acre estate. The 250-room French chateau style mansion features a bowling alley, 65 fireplaces, beautiful medieval tapestries and an immense library.

5. BANNERMAN Castle - New York

Bannerman Castle was built in the early 20th century by Scottish-American munitions merchant Francis Bannerman not as a home but as an arsenal, the castle was designed to resemble the medieval fortresses of Bannerman’s birthplace.

6. HAMMOND Castle - Massachusetts

John Hays Hammond, Jr., a prolific American inventor, built this medieval-style castle between 1926 and 1929 to serve both as his home and a museum for his collection of Roman, medieval, and Renaissance art. The castle is now a museum that displays the collection in addition to Hammond’s inventions.

7. OHEKA Castle - New York

The beautifully restored OHEKA Castle, also known as the Otto Kahn Estate was built between 1914 and 1919, made up of 127 rooms and more than 109,000-square-feet, the price tag was a staggering $11 million – in today’s money that would be $110 million.

8. FONTHILL  Castle - Pennsylvania

Henry Chapman Mercer, an Archaeologist, anthropologist, ceramist, scholar and antiquarian, built Fonthill Castle from 1908-1912 as a home and a museum for his collection of tiles and prints, mostly famously the Moravian tiles. The castle is a mix of Medieval, Gothic and Byzantine architectural styles.

9. THORNEWOOD Castle - Washington

Chester Thorne, a local prominent banker and developer, dreamt of building a Tudor Gothic home and after buying a 400-year-old English manor, had it painstakingly dismantled, transported and reconstructed. 

10. GREY TOWER Castle - Pennsylvania

Grey Towers Castle is on the register of National Historic Landmarks, acquired by Arcadia University in the suburbs north of Philadelphia. Built by sugar refining magnate William Welsh Harrison between 1893 and 1898, it was inspired by Northumberland, England’s Alnick Castle.

11. CASTELO DI AMOROSA - California

While at first glance it looks like a 13th century castle straight out of Tuscany, it was actually constructed over a 14-years period and officially opened its doors in 2007. Designed by owner and fourth generation winemaker Dario Sattui as a winery, Castello di Amorosa is surrounded by acres of vineyards producing award-winning Italian-style wines. 

12. BISHOP’S Palace (GRESHAM Castle) - Texas

This Victorian castle (formerly known as Gresham Castle) was built by lawyer and railroad entrepreneur Colonel Walter Gresham and architect Nicholas Clayton from 1887 to 1892. The Bishop’s Palace gets it’s name from recently serving as a Catholic bishop’s residence. It is a grand Gilded Age Victorian castle that was named by the American Institute of Architects as one of the 100 most important buildings in America. 

13. BELVEDERE Castle - New York

This castle was designed in 1865 by Calvert Vaux and Jacob Wrey Mould, meant to be a purely ornamental sight in the middle of Central Park. Since 1919, the National Weather Service has used it for a weather tower. Inside, there is a nature observatory. 

14. FARMS Castle - Michigan

Castle Farms was built in 1918 by Albert Loeb, acting President of Sears, Roebuck and Company. It is modeled after the ancient stone barns and Renaissance castles found in Normandy, France. 

15. LOVELAND Castle - Ohio

Loveland Castle, also known as Chateau Laroche, was constructed  in 1929 by World War I veteran, medievalist and Boy Scout troop leader, Harry D Andrews. The architecture is a combination of German, French and English styles.

Pll 6x07 Oh Brother where art thou

I had always thought the big gold peacock was wierd. It was huge and the camera seem to get it in the background.

So I of course decided to look up gold and peacocks. I had posted this awhile back when I thought Wren was Charles.

Now I still believe he is Uber A and possibly the real Charles.

The big gold peacock randomly behind Jason & Ali. It stuck out to me & I don’t know if it did to anyone else.

The Peacock Room was originally designed as a dining room in the townhouse located at 49 Prince’s Gate in the neighbourhood of Kensington in London, and owned by the British shipping magnate Frederick Richards Leyland. Charles was called Freddie. Why that name? I also thought street thing would have been cool of how he picked his name.
