Twitter co-founder Biz Stone is selling his Berkeley home for a mere $575,000 - a price point which is meaningless unless Stone can figure out a way to monetize real estate.

However, after looking at the pictures of the Wurster cottage the Stone family calls home, I can see why they would want to move from such a monstrosity. Gleaming hardwood floors? Soooo 2008. Secluded hillside property? Bah! How is one supposed to pose topless for the paparazzi if one can't be seen? Other amenities? I have no idea as the real estate website crashed about three minutes after Biz tweeted the listing.

In lieu of actual pictures or information about the home I've made a quick list of imaginary details one might find in the half million dollar house of a Twitter founder.

1. Unicorns. Obviously.

2. Pools: indoor, outdoor, and extra-dimensional.

3. Planetarium with actual planets.

4. Secret internal Google documents.

5. Unicorn food. (see #1 on the list)

6. Jack Dorsey's sense of humor.

7. Fail Whale aquarium and Lolrus bukkit.

8. Box of "Verified Account" stickers made by a confused older relative in the "printing" industry. Whatever that is.

9. Dial up.

10. Megan Fox

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
