Fysen på en ny bolig? Visstnok største i veden som ligger i et byområde. Såvidt under 10.000 kvadratmeter i BelAir i Los Angeles. Tatt 10 år å bygge, skulle egentlig selges for 500 millioner dollar, prisen ble senket til 340 millioner og så ble det tvangssalg (vet ikke om det faktisk er solgt).
For den litt interesserte er dette en ekstremt tacky prmovideo som ble laget
Og (del 1 av) den første turen rundt i huset/hotellet/palasset for den spesielt interesserte
Up on top of a mountain in Bel-Air, in Los Angeles, California, sits the world’s biggest and most expensive mansion ever built. Ten years into making, The One is now complete and has just been listed quietly at a loss.
Niami calls this his mega-mansion his life mission. He uses fancy words like sustainability when talking about using fake flowers for the vast arrangements in the foyer, which is hilarious considering the amount of space, energy, and resources this construction uses. He talks about “changing the world” with it, which, it turns out, is a preamble to an announcement that he’ll be filming a reality show there and host pay-per-view boxing matches. He talks about the challenges he faced when building this, not in the least the fact that The One, for all its bold claims, is facing foreclosure. Niami owns $110 million on it, not including unpaid taxes, which also amount to many millions.
The house itself has nine bedrooms, several kitchens (including a restaurant kitchen), and the master bedroom, which is an independent unit within the house. The One has a total of seven water features, pools and jacuzzis, and the surrounding moat. It has its own running track that goes around the house, its own 50-seat movie theater with a separate candy room, two wine cellars, actual art galleries, a cigar room with special ventilation and a collection of vintage Playboys, a game room that comes with pool tables, four-lane bowling alley and a golf simulator, and a tennis court with its own mini-bar and jacuzzi.
A separate guest house has three bedrooms and four baths, its own kitchen, laundry room, and pool. The staff quarters are impossibly tiny by comparison: seven one-person rooms with ensuite bathrooms, with a communal kitchen and laundry room. Niami says that you could easily fit four or five staff in one room “comfortably,” and he says it without a shred of humor.
Some of the features Niami initially wanted to include in The One, such as a perma-frozen room for champagne, a room just for storing fresh flowers, and a room where the walls would be tanks with jellyfish, have been ditched. They were too costly to include. In April, Niami was still talking about doing an entire wall of screens to replicate a shark tank—again, he spoke of sustainability by saying that you didn’t really have to pluck living organisms from the ocean to stand out.
Some features were kept. The nightclub, for instance, comes with a dry fire-seating area and a wet fire-seating area, in addition to indoor space to host 900-person parties. The sundeck offers breathtaking views of all of Los Angeles and will include something he calls a helicopter sleeping area—a non-functional helicopter converted into a lounge, a way for Niami to get back at planning authorities for not allowing him to put a helipad on the roof. The wellness, beauty, and fitness areas would shame actual dedicated establishments.
Abefaler ikke å drikke fyringsolje. Har nå gulpa fyringsolje hele dagen. Prøvde å få fyringsolja ut av tanken. Først med ei pumpe fra biltema som ikke virket. Deretter ved hevertprinsippet. Måtte suge skikkelig kraftig.....
"In an interview with Madhouse magazine back in 1988, Frank Zappa talked about the Deep Purple hit song and recalled that day at the Montreux Casino."

"You seem to have had a lot of trouble with the fans back then. The same week as the fire in Montreux, Some guy pushed you off the stage as well."
Frank Zappas svar:
“Yes the band thought I was dead…My head was over on my shoulder, and my neck was bent like it was broken. I had a gash in my chin, a hole in the back of my head, a broken rib, and a fractured leg. One arm was paralyzed. The 15-foot fall also crushed my larynx. One leg healed an inch shorter than the other. I walked in a circle for a few months.
He said he pushed me because he wanted me to play Peaches en Regalia and his girlfriend was in love with me and his dog told him to do it. The crew caught him, beat him and sodomized him and held him for police. He spent 12 months in jail and later became a US Senator.”
Man skal ikke tro alt man leser på nettet, men ingen ting forbauser meg om senatorer i USA.
