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

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
