Generally I would not be happy about giant boners pointed in my direction in broad daylight on Sunset Strip. That could get weird and mean trouble. But today, the new three fully torqued six-foot ones proudly on display above the Pink Dot meant the new season of Comedy Central's "Workaholics" is almost here. And that is so tight butthole, bro.

Jennifer Aniston reportedly just dropped a cool $21 million on an 8,500 square foot Mid-Century mansion in Bel-Air. The house was designed by L.A. architect A. Quincy Jones and sits on almost two acres of land, absolutely huge for Bel-Air. The amenities include four bedrooms, six and a half bathrooms, city and ocean views, and (wait for it) a vineyard, which means that Jen can let Justin Theroux feed her grapes all day, or possibly bury him out back if it doesn't work out. Check out the slideshow for a photo tour of Jennifer Aniston's new home! More»
With the tragic loss of her father when she was just a baby, Frances Bean Cobain has had to deal with some heavy things for someone who is only 19 years-old. Plus her mom is Courtney Love. Just writing that makes me uncomfortable. No amount of money as the sole beneficiary of Kurt Cobain's multi-million dollar trust will ever come close to making up for Francis Bean's hardships, but at least it gives her the freedom to do stuff like buy $1.825 million homes for herself in the Hollywood Hills.

Since "The Hills" has been off the air, lord knows it's been really difficult to find another show that's as relatable and just gets it, ya know? Between the complex storylines, melodrama of scripted interpersonal relationships, bad hair extensions and most of all, lifestyles of the cast, it's been a challenge finding something else we can all identify with. Especially the part where 20-somethings who may or may not have high school diplomas and jobs live in multi-million dollar homes in prime locations of West Hollywood, like Lauren Conrad's. More»
If you're like me, you can't even count the number of times you've been in the following situation: you're throwing a dinner party with huge social ramifications, and your house just isn't cutting it. Maybe it's the ratty couches, or the fact that since you rent, you haven't been able to fix that leaky dishwasher. Maybe you're having trouble kicking your stoner roommates off the XBox. Or just maybe, you promised your guests that you had 19 replicas of Michelangelo's David in your front yard, and your lies are about to be exposed. Well, strangely enough, we can help you with that last problem, as obscure R&B singer Norwood Young's legendary Hancock Park eyesore often referred to as the House of Davids is now on the market for a cool $2.4 million. Let's take a look! More»
The Big Lebowski is like Star Trek: both feature a large, hilarious cast of freaks, and both inspire an intensely devoted fan base who worship every minute detail of their respective universes. We count ourselves among that fanbase, so imagine our excitement upon learning The Dude's legendary Venice crash pad, marmot-friendly bathtub and all, is on the market. More»
[Photo via] After sitting cold on the market for over two years, Frank Lloyd Wright's 12,000 square-foot concrete "textile-block" Ennis House in Los Feliz finally has a new owner in billionaire Ron Burkle. The Mayan-influenced landmark is one of the architect's most celebrated structures and was originally listed in June 2009 at an asking price of $15 million by its preservation group. Since no one was biting, Burkle just swooped it up for a measly $4.5 making him the Ennis House fairy godmother it desperately needed. More»
Poor Tori Spelling- can she ever catch a break? First, she got caught drunk at the prom and had to rely on the support of Jason Priestly and Ian Ziering just to graduate, then her mom stiffs her on the inheritance, and now, the most ignoble moment of all- the shame of knowing that she merely grew up in a double-digit million-dollar home instead of a triple-digit one, after the Spelling Manor sale closed today at the low, low, why-didn't-I-just-go-buy-this-myself price of $85 million, a far cry from the $150 million asking price. So what's Petra Ecclestone going to do with the leftover $65 mil? More»
With the Spelling Manor in Beverly Hills finally finding someone not only crazy enough to want it, but also rich enough to buy it, I can't help but wonder: what the shit is Petra Ecclestone going to do with 123 rooms? We have to believe that even Candy Spelling had trouble coming up with purposes for each of the completely unnecessary spaces and had to start doubling up on the lamest ones. It's just the only semi-logical explanation I can accept for having multiple gift wrapping rooms, aside from being utterly batshit. More»
[Photo by Claudette Barius via LATimes] Want to throw a bitchin' Hollywood house party filled with half-naked models/actresses and pro athletes just like the boys on this past season of "Entourage"? You so can now that their bachelor pad from the show is for sale, but you'll have to move to the Valley. More»
SBE's newest undertaking, The Redbury, a Hollywood hotel intended for extended stays, is set to open at the end of this month and promises to be everything that Sam Nazarian's other projects aren't. With the help of Matthew Rolston, the hotel will feature an "authentic, bohemian counter-culture feel and will evoke a soulful and engaging environment that is simultaneously casual and unpretentious."

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
