I guess being one of the band members in U2, is like being one of God’s cooler brothers. The Edge, has pissed off alot of Malibu residents wanting to build a “eco friendly”, five castle McMansion, on a beautiful ridge overlooking the ocean. Seriously five castles? It gets better.
David Evans, the Edge, who doesn’t look quite so hip anymore, has named all five castles. There’s “Clouds Rest”, “Panorama,” “Shell House” and “Blue Clouds.” And my personal favorite, “Leaves in the Wind.” Who did this guy marry? His wife had to pick out these cheesy names.
In fact, the Edge has created a website, to explain why this new pad would be so fantastic at (www.leavesinthewind.com). The site promotes the controversial project, which would sit high above the Malibu pier, with a sweeping, miles-long view of spectacular coastline. Leaves in the wind, when did he get so airy fairy? Personally, I think it looks kinda ugly.
LA Times reports, the Malibu area has been buzzing since a video was added to The Edge’s website in the last several weeks, perhaps in anticipation of an upcoming California Coastal Commission hearing on the proposal. Against a gag-inducing track of New Age music, with birds tweeting in the background, fawning proponents of The Edge’s plans praise the project. His supporters include Bonny Reiss, Gov. Schwarzenegger’s former senior advisor, and, more surprisingly, Mark Massara, head of the Sierra Club’s Great Coastal Places Campaign.
Mr. Leo, the Edge, says he loves the Malibu area and is using the highest environmental standards to build his home. So what, why do you need five castles in the sky? I think he has too much money and doesn’t know what to do with it. Gotta love the Leos, they are passionate.
If every rich person in Malibu got to build the “house of their dreams”, the beautiful landscape would like New York City. Hopefully, the city of Malibu will make Evans reduce his five castles to hopefully one, minus the New Age music.
