October’s Private Islands Newsletter: 3 Stars

Dear Diary-

I finally got a chance to sit down with the October 2013 Private Islands newsletter and it was only a 3 star showing. Let’s talk about why, and let me show you my favorite featured island which is super cute. Yes cute.

First Off…

From Left: Casco Bay, Harlock, Etta's, and Sheep Island. Not  even appealing names!

 Let’s just admit I’m always going to ignore islands in Canada and Maine and the like, because A) they’re a dime a dozen up there, and B) who wants an island where it snows? The only possible redeeming quality is lobsters, but they have those in warm places too, Diary. I can’t even be bothered to make the pictures legible.

Behold the Featured Island: Meh-lody Key

Looks OK, right?

This month’s featured island is Melody Key in the actual keys of Florida, and it’s being auctioned off online Nov. 11-14. Get your $350,000 escrow deposit in by Nov. 13th, Diary! You have to bid over $3.5 million, which is a “steal” because it was previously offered at $6 million.

This is because… Continue reading

Private Rail Cars are on my mind

Private rail cars are still totes a thing. Lined with mahogany.


Tour the world in Vanderbiltian luxury.

You can get an all-purpose one or a multi-purpose one. In case you need an entire dining car or one for your ocelot.

Bedouin? BedoOUT!

Prada Marfa is one thing. It’s an art. Prada tent things in Qatar w Damien Hirst is another thing.it’s like a post, post anti modernism warholian abortion with like juice cleansing and impractical shoes.

The charm of a pop up actually being a tent is quaint, I guess, if you’re still into pop ups. The thing is, I dislike Damien Hirst lots but I sort of love Prada.

However as far as purses go, these purses went. they are not half bad. I’m into carrying these arizona truck store stop larvae in a lollipop purses. However, this continues the disturbing fashion trend of making a wacky limited edition object and shielding behind giving all the proceeds to charity so people can’t roll their eyes at your stuff. uncool guys. It’s important to take accountability for your purse.

After the Jump,  ten artist we would rather see collaborate with Prada!


Just kidding. I can think of no greater horror than like a jeff koons balloon animal hobo bag. Nevermind ,I kind of want that right now.  Look, I’m making a point here. Remember those depressing Murakami Louis Vuitton atrocities that maybe I also wanted but it was still sort of lame? I think I’m against high art high fashion combos in general.  I mean, if your’e gonna poop out a purse collab why not delight in the wacky?

It’s like a lesson you learn from you tube videos.  Human playing with cat is lame. Cat playing with bird is cool? elephant playing with dog is awesome. Lion reuniting with human caretakers and hugging them is superb. unlikely friends is what makes for sympatico combos. What we need here is a taco bell prada purse.

stuff still happens in williamsburg three years ago

you guys. when did this pool happen?


there’s a fricken salt water pool in Williamsburg  in a hotel next to mccarren park. also they are getting a michelin star chef. Also that real pool in the park is now a pool again and it used to be just a loitering concert hole for people too lazy to go to PS1.

All I want is a salt water urban oasis for myself. And none of that sex in the city sneaking in shit. This pool is open to the public for $45. there are very few pools in NY in private residences btw. One of the great tragedies of the city. not as tragic as getting weirded out by a pool in williamsburg three years after that shit opened. This is how over it that whole area is people.

TL:DR – The density of platinum is 21.45 g/mL, which is much higher than the 1 g/mL density of water. (PS there is something called forum.spacebattles.com)

Gold Plated Rolls Royce = Real

Dear Diary,

You’ll be relieved to know that this bulletproof gold plated Rolls Royce, however, is real.

Gold Plated Yacht Hoax

There is definitely not a real gold-plated yacht. Yet.

$4.5 billion buys a lot of Versace mansions.
