Virtual Tour of Steve's Weird House. "Stephen resides in a Victorian home that is a cluttered combination of museum, library and art gallery, decorated with that old-world Addam's Family charm. Not only is every inch of every wall covered with art, but all the ceilings are also decorated." (Via.)

Good lord, don't try to abort loading the (huge) Flash tour. I had to resort to taskkill /f.

My browsers brains hurt -- it did look pretty cool, though. I just wish it was presented differently (or Santa brings me a new computer).

It's like living in a hidden object game.

In that house, an innocent game of "I Spy..." could turn deadly.

I didn't see a smoke alarm in a single room. And if any house needed one, it'd be that one. Still, very impressive.

I got nausea just looking at that. Good god that's impressive. This is the kind of thing that used to be highlighted in the great Nest Magazine.

Also, I saw no bed in the bedroom and no sink or toilet in the bathroom. wtf?

Memory hog alert - the bathroom Flash panorama alone consumed 1.5 gigs of Page File on my 512 meg system- 2 gigs of ram would be a minimum to view these things smoothly.

Firefox can't stand it cap'n. She's breakin' apart at da seams! Crashed me, in, say, 45 seconds.

He is particularly looking for a perfectly weird woman (artistic, outrageous) to share his weird world with!

There's a bed/sink/toilet in there, dobbs. They're just covered in shit. Also, I didn't have any problems with the flash on there, it ran totally smooth over here.

Yeah, flash worked super smooth for me on Safari.

I've never understood what makes these collector guys tick. It's almost like they're expressing a gene that's usually only active in birds, some crazy gene that drives male birds to build extravagant nests out of the most colorful, shiny bits their little bird beaks can carry.

Except no matter how hard the collector guys work, their nests never attract a mate.

What's the difference between this and the sort of hoarding that gets you on "How Clean is You House?"

The difference is that this stuff is more interesting to look at than 20 years worth of newspapers. Same kind of thing of course, but there is a difference.

Heaven forbid someone should be successful in pointing out to each of us how we are precisey like each other, only different in our own minds.

Reminded me a bit of Jean Kerr's famous neo-gingerbread house.

Seriously, does anyone see a Waldo doll or book? I got as far as the office before I got tired of looking for one.

I know Steve. I was at a party of his some time back, I think it's an annual thing. Among those in attendance were an entomologist and a couple of sideshow performers. I'd taken the (meatspace) tour of his house before, so no RAM strain on my part here...

What surprised me the most the second time around was the huge collection of boxes and packing materials stored outside next to his house...

He owns several pieces of sideshow memorabilia that absolutely knocked my socks off!
