Why, oh why? This site always had its own sensibility, and has managed to attract the kindness and even sometimes the bitchiness of strangers always eager to join the conversation about the myriad ways that we construct our homes. This has been a public place to show off and be shown, namely because everyone, no matter what social class, knew that this site wasn't about material aspirations, but that good design and a thoughtful engagement with it is in-itself aspirational because it reflected the best of a democratic aesthetic. Obviously someone, somewhere decided to make a change (without asking its followers and contributors) wagering that design and notions of inspiration and aspiration can be streamlined without the questions that they provoke. Even though there are over 200 comments, I'm guessing that there is a resounding silence from current members. As in, "what, really?"; "this can't be happening!". It will be interesting to see if more comments and a conversation will emerge in response to this mass-produced (with all of its negative connotations) new and now deadly boring website.

Crazy is as crazy does. I don't know, we have similar Victorian homes smushed between similar low rise blight and it's hard to know who's side to be on, if anyone's at all. I think that quirky and eccentric are both applicable terms, but how about "Statement: Pebbles meets Bam Bam". Discuss.

Sad. I always think of Cherry Blossom Season as Japanese. People are suffering and are without homes...sober thoughts worth attention. Donations to the Red Cross are always a good way to pitch in.

I'm from Toronto and embarrassed that this place is somehow representative of this city or masculinity. I think that the bed and photograph is especially creepy...hot or not. I would run. And fast.
