bonsai skulls

Beautiful Bonsai Skulls

TweetThese bonsai skulls are creepy chic. When people walk into my bedroom, one of the things they always say is that my décor is a little dark. I’ve also been told it looks like a hotel room (which I take as a compliment), and that my sensibilities are a little creepy (also, a compliment). So when I saw these bonsai skulls online, my first thought was ‘Do they come in gold?’ and if so, where can ... »

Mens Gyms Are Becoming More Selfie Friendly

TweetGym designers are changing tradition with luxury upgrades for selfie friendly locker rooms. As a gay man, I have been in the ladies room of a JC Penney, so I know that there has always been a huge difference between the sexes when it comes to bathrooms and locker rooms. Women’s locker rooms are outfitted with couches, tables, comfortable seating, and good lighting. Men’s locker rooms look lik... »

An Abandoned Fairy Tale Castle

TweetPreservationists are fighting to save an abandoned French fairy tale castle. I am all about castles. Something about the grandeur of living in a huge stone fortress just speaks to my inner child, and outer materialistic and majestic adult self. Every now and then on Pinterest you read about entire castles for sale for ridiculously cheap prices, but the truth is that a lot of the castles in Eu... »

Live Off the Grid in a Shipping Container

TweetShipping containers are the most popular trend in living off the grid. Anyone who knows me knows that my favorite fantasy is to live off the grid in the middle of the woods, far away from any prancing homos, annoying girls, and horrible NYC people who take themselves too seriously. Anyone who knows me also knows it’ll probably never happen because IFL the Internet. Regardless, fantasies are f... »

Unusual Houses: Woman Turns Her Old Bank Into a Luxury Home

TweetA Pennsylvania woman turns the bank she once worked at into a luxury home. If you are like me, your dream is to buy a building that would never normally be considered a house, and renovate it into a dream home. My plan is to one day buy a cathedral, and make my bedroom under a huge stained glass window. I love unusual houses, especially in unusual formats. Cathy Calhoun, of Spring City, PA fi... »

sexist 1950s kitchen

An Adorably Sexist 1950s Kitchen

TweetTake a tour of a never-been-used kitchen from 1956. It’s no secret that the 1950s weren’t a great time for women. Women were expected to be subservient to men, and put their vaginas on ice in favor of creating the perfect nuclear family unit, complete with shellacked hairdos, clean haircuts, and children that would inevitably turn to hard drugs in the 1970s. This house, owned by a man named N... »

Live in An Indoor Jungle

TweetA French Botanist has turned his house into an indoor jungle. Even though I live in New York, I am a really outdoorsy kind of gay. I think it is absolutely vital for humans to commune with nature once in a while, and even though I live in a concrete cage on top of millions of other people, I try to escape into the wilderness as much as possible. Patrick Blanc, a French Botanist is known in Fr... »

small triangle house

The Tiny Triangle House

TweetThis tiny triangle house is proof that you can do a lot with small spaces. I have always been a fan of small spaces, ever since I seceded from my family in my youth, and decided to start my life over living on the top shelf in my bedroom closet. Needless to say that didn’t last very long, but I still appreciate all the tiny houses I have seen popping up on the Internet in the last few years. ... »

Fish Tank Toilet: It’s a thing

Fish Tank Toilet: It’s a thing

TweetIf you’ve ever spent a particularly long bathroom adventure wondering why the water tank behind you isn’t teaming with real fish, good news, the fish tank toilet concept is a real thing. A wild company out in California, AquaOne, will happily replace the standard water tank on your regular throne. The Fish ‘n Flush Toilet Tank Aquarium comes complete with a filtration system... »
