We wanted a treehouse when I was a kid (after seeing an old Donald Duck cartoon where his nephews had
a wicked cool one), but we had no trees in our yard capable of supporting one, so my father build a basic
platform with wooden beams.  It was a good 7-8 feet off the ground, and stood for many years and gave us
many hours of enjoyment.

So I biteth my thumb at the hipster douchebags at The Gothamist.

That was crap and not cool.

I wonder how many times that treehouse got struck by lightning? It does seem to be the highest point.

Phonehenge was cooler. Shame they made that guy tear it all down.

Roderick Romero (The guy that built the treehouse) was the co-founder of Seattle great "Sky Cries Mary".  He's built some amazing stuff in the past, and made life changing music.  He gets a pass on anything he does that isn't amazing just for reasons.

Make one hell of a posh funeral pyre.

Gothamist hates it, so I love it.

I've seen bums build better shelters from the Black Friday carnage behind the Best Buy.

Looks like a brush pile. Bet it would make a hell of a bonfire.

So many things to say...

Ewoks, Wookies, Elves, The Navi, and Tarzan all are completely unimpressed.  (There are plenty of others that aren't fictional)

That is a house made of trees.  Not a treehouse.

Somewhere in the world (I forget where), they built a huge goat out of straw.  Every year, someone burns it to the ground.  They've actually gotten to a point where they just let it happen, because it's inevitable, and people kinda find it entertaining.   So, maybe we can create an annual event like that here.

Best quote FTA:
"You're telling me in a borough chock full of artisanal treehouse makers, this is the best you could do?"

Maybe they should have gotten together with that guy who does artisanal pencil sharpening

David Brees is a making fun of hipster douchebags that do "artisanal crap". I bought my dad How to Sharpen Pencils: A Practical & Theoretical Treatise on the Artisanal Craft of Pencil Sharpening for Writers, Artists, Contractors, Flange Turners, Anglesmiths, & Civil Servants for Christmas. It is farking hilarious.

This is more of a treehouse and it isn't even in a tree! Disneyodendron eximus.
