RUST IN PEACE AT 7TH AND SAN VICENTE ...!

                      

Eyes were popping in Santa Monica yesterday at the latest addition to the Monstrosity Under Construction at 7th and San Vicente.  The "whimsical" home, known as Casa del Bozo for its triangular-shaped windows, inexplicable staircases within staircases and walls that twist and turn like a funhouse mirror, is starting to rust.  Curiously, weeks after builders applied a "decorative" layer of Mottled Metal sheeting to the top story, multi-colored rust has settled-in for the duration.  In some places, the rust gives the home a Reddish Brown appearance.  In others, including the side facing my bedroom, the rust has created an Orange Hue, not unlike the rusticles on the Titanic.  I don't know who designed this blight on our neighborhood.  May they Rust in Peace ...!
