HANCOCK PARK: Ugly Angel turns us on to the Houses of Hancock Park blog. Introduction: "Unlike the Hills (see Beverly, Holmby, Hollywood, etc.), there are few homes entirely obscured from view to protect the privacy of its inhabitants. Hancock Park, like a C-list actress, has put itself out there in everyway and still sees very little action. That's my kinda girl. The houses of Hancock Park range from fabulous to normal (but mostly fabulous), outrageous to demure (but mostly outrageous), and stunningly beautiful to hideously tacky (but mostly the former), and like most gorgeous things in Los Angeles, they have been DYING for a homosexual to come along and judge like his life depended on it. I have arrived." Brace, Hancock Park. The blog breaks down houses block by block. [Houses of Hancock Park]

PALMS SPRINGS: "I hope this is a joke, because if it isn't, I'm worried," writes a reader, sending in the listing for this Palms Springs two-bedroom. Is the listing agent working out some childhood issues (because that's totally cool with us.). Starter: "Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." [Redfin]
