agreed - BUT - the guy got it into mainstream AND is getting more pussy than a gynocologist in that tiny, poorly ventilated, loft bedroom.



seriously, look at some of the hippy housing ideas of the late sixties and early seventies which eventually made it into main stream construction at big buck prices. post & beam, cathedral ceilings, architectural salvage, all quite avante garde coming from the ozzie & harriet, june & ward cleaver, levittown fifties & sixties.
