{Coast of Carolina}

Listen this song:
Telekinesis-Coast of Carolina (2010)
"Come down, come quickly
Look at the lights in the big city
Sewers smoking what the hell
Is it toxic I can't tell
When they wake up twist and turn
Feel my insides bubble and burn
Constant conversations with myself
Goddamn this isn't fair...Woooww"

{Dumfrey House}

“’tis certainly a great undertaking, perhaps more bold than wise, but necessity has no law!”

William Crichton-Dalrymple, 5th Earl of Dumfries
“...of my houses...I think Dumfries House is, perhaps, the homeliest of them all.”
John Patrick, 3rd
Dumfries House is a Palladian(*) country house in Ayrshire, Scotland. It is located within a large estate, around 3 km west of Cumnock. It was built in the 1750s by John Adam and Robert Adam for William Dalrymple, 5th Earl of Dumfries, and inherited in due course by the Marquesses of Bute, in which family it remained until 2007. It is notable for having preserved much of its original 18th-century furniture in situ, some of which was specially commissioned for the house from Thomas Chippendale.

Dumfries House is one of Britain’s most beautiful stately homes and best kept heritage secrets.

(*) Palladian architecture is a European style of architecture derived from the designs of the Venetian architect Andrea Palladio (1508–1580). The term "Palladian" normally refers to buildings in a style inspired by Palladio's own work; that which is recognised as Palladian architecture today is an evolution of Palladio's original concepts. Palladio's work was strongly based on the symmetry, perspective and values of the formal classical temple architecture of the Ancient Greeks and Romans. From the 17th century Palladio's interpretation of this classical architecture was adapted as the style known as Palladianism. It continued to develop until the end of the 18th century.
