not all those who wander are lost

Everybody knows Detroits most favorite ruined house in Brush Park – the Ransom/Gillis house. It even has a cameo appearance in the beginning of Beverly Hills Cop. Its history is sketchy, but basically it was built by Brush/Mason, owned by Ransom….. Gillis had nothing to do with the home. Apparently Gillis was the next door neighbor and never lived in the Ransom home. Ahwell – that shit happens sometimes.

Well EVERYBODY has the tired ass photos of the outside of this place, so heres the dFUNK exclusive – the interior shots.

The only thing discernible on the inside that is not collapsed or smashed or burned are the first and second floor fireplaces. These are seen looking up from the basement through the collapsed floors.

Do not try this at home kiddies.

The Statler Hotel is not even getting an honorable death – its being nibbled away like so much swiss cheese by angry hungry mice.

Heres a fab fixer upper interior out in the west side- a little paint and some home made crafts and you have yourself a lovely loft ! Starting in the low $200,000.00s

Pedro and I were at Rouge Park and we went through an entire box of ChoreBoy after smoking crack cocaine rocks all afternoon. Heh.

[Seriously, I know of no other practical application for the telltale ChoreBoy copper mesh scrubbers out in the middle of an urban park. Unless they brought some stained cookware with them to wash.]

“wonderlove” – a crudely converted “wonderland music” sign.


Larry the freakin Beaver. I dunno about you, but Im not hiring no beaver to do home improvements – theyd start gnawing on your good wood as soon as you turn your back ! Why not just have a groundhog guard your apple orchard ?
