That House With All The Statues Is For Sale!

A big thanks to my boyfriend for sending me the link to Curbed L.A.'s inside look into the House of Davids. Holy crap, this is a dream come true for me. I have always wanted to see the inside of this Hancock Park gem. This is my favorite house in all of L.A., only because it's so gaudy and ridiculous. How can you not love those awful statues?

At Christmas time they even put Santa hats on them. Man, I wish I had a picture of that. I also can't help but think of the house from My Big Fat Greek Wedding whenever I drive by this monstrosity.

You must check out the pics at Curbed Los Angeles. The inside is amazing: invisible furniture, giant hand statues, fake dogs! I love this city.

I Don't Get These DIRECTV Commercials

I am super thankful to have switched from Time Warner to DIRECTV, but I gotta say DIRECTV's current commercials are totally weird. I don't understand their target audience. Here's one example:

Is this a problem for people? Not being able to watch a movie in every room of the house? Visually, these commercials are cool, but other than that, I don't get it.

You're telling me this guy is on such a tight movie-watching schedule that he can't take three minutes to make popcorn then go back to watching the movie? I find it so odd that he starts watching it in the bedroom, moves to the kitchen, then ends up in the living room (not to mention he's dressed up for the occasion, but I digress). Who does that? Maybe it's because I'm poor and only have one TV, limiting my options, but it seems to me like this commercial is geared toward people who can't sit still.

DIRECTV -- serving coke heads who dress up to watch movies in their own home and can't sit in one room for more than a few minutes at a time.
