It looks like a movie set, but the Spaceship House is just home sweet home.
The music has changed, but today’s most popular artists still wear their “homes” on their sleeves no matter where their travels take them. With the MTV Video Music Awards nominations recently being announced, it occurred to us that the nominated artists in the “Video of the Year” category all have especially strong ties to their hometowns. To commemorate one of the most entertaining music award shows around, let’s take a look at some homes from their old stomping grounds.
Who wouldn’t want to live in a beachfront, multi-million dollar home on the sunny sands of California where you’re constantly surrounded by exceptionally good looking, youthful people? At first glance that’s what the home on USA’s new show Graceland appears to be, but the story of this home is much deeper and darker than the postcard worthy setting would have you believe.
One of the great stories of finding a new home in the last 100 years is the story of Superman. A boy who’s original home was destroyed must now make a new home in a foreign land. It’s one of the most memorable immigration tales of a generation and it doesn’t seem to get old as Superman continues to be an iconic character.
I know nothing about Stephen Kellogg and the Sixer but I came across the lyrics to their song My Favorite Place during one of my recent trips down the rabbit hole of the Internet. You know when you click on a link and then get distracted and find yourself on a site and you don’t know how you got there? That’s what happened to me when I came across this video of Stephen Kellogg on YouTube talking about My Favorite Place.
