Gaze Upon the Glass and the Glow

7080 Mulholland Dr., Los Angeles, CA 90068

So many odd design and decor choices in this home. From the all-glass entry…

…to the unnaturally glowing exterior.

Inside: more glowing.

I’m not even sure I can wrap my head around what’s going on with these stairs.

And check out the pool:

Maybe the owners are extreme Marvel fans, and they filled it with some weird radioactive liquid instead of water, in hopes that they might somehow gain super powers?

  1. Well whadya know? I thought this place looked familiar, too. But unlike the last listing, there are no nefarious connections here (that I know of). Took until I got to Pics 35 and 36 before I was sure, though. I’d wanted to submit the listing (as it used to be) under the heading of “Don’t Look Down” due to Pic 35 as well as shots similar to the stairway shots from this listing, but when I got around to it, the older listing was no longer available. Guess someone was busy flipping it. It looks better now, though “better” is a relative term, seeing as how it has all the warmth and charm of a showroom. Not sure what sort of showroom… just a generic showroom. Great views, though, and I love the river rock entry drive. Looks like that took a whole lotta time to install.

  2. Why do I want to fill the place with giant, helium-filled, translucent jellyfish balloons?

  3. I think a couple of those helium-filled motorized shark-balloons would blend in nicely. They could battle the giant jellyfish for world domination.

  4. @Anodean: Just a guess, but is it because a giant house made of glass looks like a honkin’ big aquarium? As for the shark-balloons, can we rig ’em up to give a visible static discharge when they touch the jellies? You know, to simulate the tentacle stings? ‘Cause that would be cool.

  5. @Emerald63: Especially if we filled the jellyfish with hydrogen.

  6. @Anodean: I have the sense that, together, we could take over the world. And – trust me on this – Paradox would make us a fine, fine Richelieu. >:)

  7. @Emerald63: We are, we are, we are the engineers… Engineers of Fortune. That has a ring to it… and thank you for volunteering, Paradox, for the most demanding of available roles. :D

  8. @Anodean: Oh I didn’t say he’d want to volunteer, just that he’d be perfect for the role. ;)

  9. @Emerald63: Engineers of Fortune do not mind whether anyone wants to volunteer. They simply announce that the relevant person has volunteered… and in their own case, it will always have been entirely their own idea to do so.

    And so it begins. :D

  10. On reflection, world domination seems always to be fraught with staffing problems… and once achieved, one discovers oneself to have become responsible for keeping the whole thing trimmed and painted.

    Let us foreswear such unprofitable ventures and all remain good friends.

  11. Cardinal Richelieu slips smoothly down the corridor, his ecclesiastical robes muffling even the soft sounds of his feet on the wooden floor. Silently he enters the room where the conspirators, drunk on wine and ambition, now sleep soundly; he quickly feels the heft of their purses and exits with a slight grimace, thinking that if the project is to go forward his first task will be to recruit some wealthy patrons to the cause…

  12. @Anodean: How does that song go again? “It’s not easy being mean”? Well, for those without the resolve to do what must be done! Adieu, fellow overthrower….

  13. @Paradox: Pardon, Monsieur, but I do not drink wine. Can’t stomach the stuff. Give me a frosty lager any day…

    I must say as well I am now experiencing a disconcerting cognizant dissonance where my chosen metaphor of Richelieu is concerned. See, over the weekend the hubster and I finally started watching our backlogged DVR copies of the recent BBC series “The Musketeers,” wherein a certain Peter Capaldi plays said Cardinal. The problem lies with the fact that as of 8/23 he will also be playing the newly regenerated Doctor Who. Even if we’d watched The Musketeers when it premiered instead of waiting, we would still have been assailed with ads for the coming season of DW. I find BBC at cross-purposes with itself and myself in a near state of fan whiplash accompanied with vertigo and nausea. Consequently, I withdraw Richelieu as the model for our, nay, my erstwhile Man Behind the Scenes. I shall ponder other candidates… I’ll have my people call your people, ‘kay?

  14. @Emerald63: Are you quite certain that Paradox’s “Richelieu” is not actually the Patrician of Ahnk-Morpork? I should think you would get on entirely well, for I seem to remember that his dungeon allies, the rats, were bringing him bottles of beer during his temporary indisposition there.

    I, of course, remain agreeable to tasks within my limited attention span, confident that such minds as the two of you will always know best how to bribe me. :D

  15. @Anodean: Ahhh, the Patrician! Of course!! I do believe Paradox would give a fine portrayal of him, complete with trim build, silver hair, and a superior ability to harbor hidden motives. An excellent choice!

    As for the other, we will certainly let you know when tasks for which you are well suited require your attention. :D
