    I too am curious about what exactly caused the issue.

    Yard work this week, and some electrical. Gotta replace two light fixtures. We'll see how it goes.

    So where exactly did you get that little chainsaw? I'm hoping you just had it laying around.....in your apartment.

    I wish. Home Depot 10 minutes before they closed. Realized it would be way too loud, so I held off on actually doing it until the next morning. Anyone in LA in the market for a barely used 14 in Electric Chain Saw? Cost $50, but for you..? $25.

    I'll post more pics when I locate my damn camera. Think I left it on a business trip.

No faceplate, no instrument panel, and a clusterfuck of wires were all that were intact. And all over the floorboard were these little cut outs like stencils of various sized "plans..." Some of these stencils were works of a different mind set, no doubt. Milk Cartons, cardboard scraps, and steel plates, ground and reformed into whatever this guy's mind had planned for the remodel. If there were ever a case where you needed an example of a meth-head for your poster child, that was it. Now...You just happen to keep a chainsaw laying around? And, did you get the first picture before or after your attack?

    Dear J$,

    When we someday become awesome housemates in an awesome house, can we have these lighting fixtures?

    I love the table. It's got no legs.

    If Frank Lloyd Wright has taught us nothing (other than the fact that flat roofs with shoddy craftsmanship WILL leak), it's that cantilevers are badass.

    (n.b., I really thought it was spelled "rooves" but my little dotted red lines are telling me it's "roofs" and now I feel terribly uncertain of everything I spell.)

    Also RATA, I adore you. Please make more videos. Give us an apartment tour. Give us a an oral book review. Show us how you do your grocery shopping. Give us a cooking lesson. Take us to your favorite Koreatown bar.

    Maybe indoor rain was all part of his plan.

    Oh God. You don't want that. I'm a 31 yr old in middle management. I think you'd find me an insufferable bore. As for the voice, I only sound like that when sick. I usually sound like Rosie Perez.

    Also, Courtney, with all due respect, those lamps are hideous. They look like oversized Christmas tree ornaments.

    Okay, they don't look as bad as singles. Beyond the resemblance to Christmas tree ornaments, I guess seeing something copper hanging from a ceiling makes me think of copper pots and pans.

    I don't care for them, but I find them a lot less ugly as singles as well. Part of it may be that I don't feel like they go with the first room at all. It's such a warm metal for such a white room. Maybe if they were matte finish. And a color, maybe a nice spring green. Maybe if they were totally different.

    I will give you that the first room was not very harmonious. I just really like the fixtures. Everyone and their mother has been doing chrome dome shades forever, so copper is a refreshing departure for me.

    That's not the voice that reads your posts, RATA. Neither is Rosie Perez.

    That aside, I freaking loved it! Thanks for the video/audio.

    Good Lord. What were you people expecting? Paul Lynde?


    On a completely separate note, the water pressure of my kitchen faucet suddenly turned to a piddle today. First time this has ever happened to me. As in ever. In any apartment. This probably sounds ridiculous, but I've never had water pressure issues and as a result I've never adjusted my water pressure. Is this pretty easy to do under the sink or is it a more involved process?

    I love them. Pendant lighting is boring these days.


    Also that wood peninsula is not free floating. There has to be a leg out of view. Unless they drilled into the table and put some heavy duty invisible corbels. Physics does not allow it to free floating.

    It could possibly continue through the other side of the wall and serve a different function in another room.

    True. Any type of weight put at the end of it is going to cause some serious stress on the kitchen cabinets and other counter tops. It could be disastrous for the entire system. TOTAL COLLAPSE IMMINENT.

    I've never heard of an adjustment for water pressure. There are usually shut-off valves (one hot and one cold) that can be partially opened or closed, but unless you fiddled with your valves I don't think this would cause the piddle. Check for leaks!

    This HAS happened to me, very recently. The only suggestion I have for you is to see if anyone else in your building is suffering from the same problem, because, as with my problem, there was a leak in the common basement that someone tried to fix by themselves that ended up cutting water pressure in half for us all.
