Oh Yeah: Ferris Bueller Ferrari House for Sale


Anybody got a cool $2.3 million? "...cantilevered over the ravine, these two steel and glass buildings, which can never be duplicated, have incredible vistas of the surrounding woods. This is a unique property designed by A. James Speyer and David Haid, both notable architects of the 20th Century. Estate Sale Sold -No disclosures! This is an amazing architectural treasure."

The question isn't "what are we going to do," the question is "what aren't we going to do?"

Relevant Bueller scenes, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Andy, these new noisy ads on the site are awful! They all go on at once! Take them off!

  3. these ads must be only for some users.. I haven't noticed them at all. Using Firefox.

  4. Been using Add Block Plus with Firefox for about 6 months now - it's the only thing that makes reading this site tolerable (and decently quick).

  5. I'm using Firefox with the 'NoScript' add-on.

    1. After installing add-on, go to a website you visit regularly. (Ahem) Click the NoScript icon in bottom right corner of Firefox window, and one by one, mark as 'Untrusted' any domains with annoying banners and such.
    2. Right-click any disagreeable static advertising banner graphic and select (for example) "Block images from" -- and never have to see their ads again.

    After a week of knocking a few out per day, you can visit the site with relatively rare annoyances and fairly few ad monstrosities.

    I don't mind seeing banners which help support the site, but SOME companies are totally unscrupulous in the things they'll do to force their ads on you. It is Andy's choice to allow those companies to advertise; it is the visitor's choice to allow those companies to hijack our browsers, make awful noises, pop up windows, etc.

    Just saying.

  6. The ads are a cash cow for Andy, he needs them to run the site (and rake in the $$$). If I were him, I probably would be doing the same.

  7. Okay, back to the posting at hand. (fyi, the ads have never been a visual impedance or an audible annoyance). Thanks for posting this.

    As an architect, I have always salivated over that house from the scenes in the movie. Nearly impossible to re-create anything that elegant and classic these days, without producing a soul-less rip-off. And I love how the houses mildly reflected the characters' personalities in the movie. Ferris' house is actually not in suburban Chicago, but Long Beach, CA.

    Perhaps in these days of rotting foreclosed-upon McMansions and bloated wasteful sprawl, we could learn to live in simple, yet daring and spectacular houses such as this. Why would I(anyone) spend $2.3m on a brick-faced vinyl architectural tumor in Jersey when they could live easily and elegantly in this house for the same price (and probably cheaper to maintain)? :)
