Jan 17th 2011 8:14PM A trunk? No need. You can clearly see the luggage rack at the rear of the car. The one just behind and above the rear tires?
Just a couple of bungie cords and that rack will hold your lettuce and milk nicely :)
Dec 14th 2010 1:46PM Who give a rats $%^ what Congress says about an Art exhibit? First is the seperation of church and state. I know that this is not a legal matter, but they are not speaking on a personal level, they are acting as members of Congress. As such, they do not (at least, should not) have a formal opinion on items that should be seperated from the Federal government. I will acknowledge that this is a fantasy thought, and one from an America that follows it's own laws; One that does not appear to exist.
Second, those men are hired to Congress due to their ability to talk people to death, not for their excellence in Art studies or Religion. Would anyone listen if a professional soccer player started bad-mouthing the pitching of a Yankees player? hardly.
Nov 5th 2010 3:37PM I coudln't imagine raising kids in that house. white walls wouldn't last a month ;)
I think it looks good, but a little "pure" for a family. maybe some gray/lighter brown on the walls to keep a more even look in case of young boys with dirty hands?
Jun 1st 2010 3:17PM the key to the ungainly workout room could be defined by who owned this house previously. I have a brother that works for Seagate, and is in Phuket occasionally at their factory. He has mentioned in the past that ex-patriots from tech companies, usually armed with a large sum of money provided by the company, buy excessively large houses then use them as general "hang-outs" for the tech employees that are staying in the area.
It could be that this house was designed with the thought of entertaining many tech employees that are away from home. Take a look at the pool and theater... far too many seats for a single family home, unless you were having massive parties.
I could be wrong though. There certainly are alot of people that love being over-the-top decadent.
Mar 11th 2010 6:16PM That's a great way to handle a reasonably ugly piece of equipment. I've been using a power-plate for the last two months through a sports-medicine chiropractor. I find it to be an incredible machine to promote the strengthening of stabilizing muscles: it wont make you lift 50lbs more, but will keep you balanced and tight reducing the twist and wander that knees and backs usually go through, and it has been an incredible aide while getting my knees and back in line.
As fond of the power plate as I am, it's not attractive. But this model (if only I had the means) would be a great overhaul in a workout room. I wonder if the artist can/will do alternate colors and patterns.
Maybe I should just paint it myself, and save the additional $10k us.
Feb 11th 2010 10:08AM The Hearsts are bad people from the print industry in the depression era. They've caused america alot of lost money in the interests of protecting their coffers.
Paper, Cotton, and plastic would have all been replaced long ago by cheaper, cleaner, easier to produce hemp if it weren't for Mr Hearst. I'm not a stoner pushing for marijuana legalization, just a business minded person that knows that less expensive is almost always better (when balanced against quality). Hemp is better at being paper than wood is, better at being fabric than cotton is, and better at being plastic than chemicals are.
Shame on the Hearst family.
Nov 6th 2009 11:34AM I take that first part back :) you didn't actually say it was new, just revised. My error.
Nov 6th 2009 11:32AM Not to be picky, but this isn't a new setup for BMW. It is in fact, a very old setup for BMW.
The horizontal twin has been on BMW motorcycles far longer than the traditional parallel engine.
I do like that BMW went back to the H engine, it is appropriate. A BMW bike with a parallel engine jsut doesn't feel right. The horizontal layout creates a superb gyro on un-even terrain, allowing the rider to pull this heavy of a machine up very steep or techincal singletrak, something missing from most heavy adventure bikes (the hummer bike, the KTM LC-series)
To anyone considering a dual-sport machine, go BMW. I am on my second R100GS PD, very cool bikes, very reliable.
Jul 21st 2009 6:53PM that picture makes it look mean!
Like it eats small children that are unfortunate enough to step near it ;)
Apr 2nd 2009 2:56PM What a gorgeous touch. Too often those with the means to purchase a vehicle like this decide to go far overboard with the detailing. I think of Diamond coated SLRs.
However, this paint job, while extravagant, slips well under the radar in terms of the "hey, stare at me" factor.
Well, that is, as much as a million dollar sportscar can slip under the radar.
