haunted hill 269x400 In A Crumbling World

As a cultural melting pot, the United States has influences from all over the world and the Ennis House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, is just another borrowed architectural style.

The Ennis House’s significance isn’t as much about its design, as it is about how it became known.

Built in 1924 in Los Angeles, the Ennis House‘s unique design is borrowed from Mayan temples. As such, FLW’s design has attracted many filmmakers to use the mansion as a filming location. The most prominent of these productions being, House on Haunted Hill and Blade Runner.

Although tremendous efforts have been made to keep this monumental building intact, natural environmental effects have taken their toll on it. Many areas of the building are in need of restoration and the Ennis House Foundation no longer feels that they are up for the job.

After much consideration, the foundation has decided to place the house on the market for 15 million USD, to sell to a private buyer, so that he or she may take care of this unique work of art.

The Verdict:
Let’s hope that the individual that does buy the mansion is open to letting us film at this beautiful location.

Picking up pennies,

    I know this would be better suited to an email, but do you mind if I ask what WordPress theme you’re using for this website? With the right changes (colors, banners, etc.) it would be perfect for my blog.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    I dont see what it is about this web page that turns me off so much, but you just dont seem to get me excited. I dont see if its the lack of contents or because of the way you wrote it. But you actually dont appear to understand that your readers may not agree with you.

    When it comes to designer clothes, everyone is aware of the fact that they will be very much expensive. But this is something that is not unusual, for the quality of materials that is used, the money that is considered for the advertising and the overall control over the production are very much exquisite. But nevertheless, there are many people that are buying such clothes and most of them will look for cheap designer clothing and also cheap designer sunglasses on the internet, for they know that there will be a lot of discounts they can benefit from.
