…MrWong got carried away with the Soup’Partments?


MrWong’s Soup’Partments is an abandoned attempt to build the world’s tallest virtual building.

Abandoned doesn’t mean it was unsuccessful however, as I can’t imagine anyone ‘building’ anything higher than the Soup’Partments, with its 406 residents and 2,000 meters of height.

To help with the construction, MrWong opened the project to anyone with an image editor and some spare time. Users downloaded a template for either a one-story ‘apartment’ or a two-story ‘loft’ and went to work customizing it with anything that their heart desired. MrWong then checked I, and as long as it met with his approval, the story was added.

Since the project was closed down almost five years ago, not much has gone on in the Soup’Partments lately, but if you want a good look at some rather unique Internet history, there’s no better place to begin.

…Everything Must Go?

Everything Must Go

GrandOpening, the store featured previously on DYH, has just reopened, and is now called Everything Must Go, The Lower East Side Auction House.

    It’s spring! Empty your apartment of all that drab furniture. Better yet, move and leave all that old stuff behind. This weekend, The Lower East Side Auction House can help you get started.

It looks to be yet another very successful iteration of the GrandOpening idea, so if you’re in the New York area, then definitely stop by and check it out.

…Poseidon will let you sleep on the ocean floor?

The Poseidon Hotel wants to give a new meaning to the term sleeping with the fishes. Currently being built off the coast of Fiji, the hotel will rest on the ocean floor, and with 60% of the hotel covered in windows, ought to provide some of the most beautiful views any hotel goer has ever seen. Set to open in early 2009, there will be 24 suites and one apartment, all done in top luxury style. It’s a whole new world.
