Hi, all!

I did not expect the managerial search to finally end yesterday. I actually did the Hoddle hours before the announcement, so please enjoy this completely off topic ramble.

Ramble of the Day

For me, one true great thing about the internet is finding out how many people enjoy seeing low quality things. It’s nice to know I’m not alone in this, and it’s really nice when people put in the hard work of finding these things and putting them in an easy to find place. The latest destination I go looking for these almost offensive things is The Best of Zillow, a Twitter account that shares some really horrible homes.

Some of the most innocent ones are just homes with way too much going on. The weirdest of the weird homes, though, are based around a very unappealing theme. Let’s start with this one, which actually fits both requirements.

I really think the above home has some maximalist Barbie dollhouse vibes, designed by the tackiest child one could find. Here’s a more minimal version of the same idea, which I think could double as the set of an old school game show for children.

Naturally, not everyone has a juvenile aesthetic. Some, for example, like animals.

Others, boats of any kind.

A lot of editing would probably make each one of these homes better, but the maximalism is clearly the point here. There’s nothing quite like going overboard, is there?

tl;dr: The best (read: worst) of Zillow.
