The Weekly Blend is your “weekly” source covering real estate news that you just may have missed. Our hard-at-work Weekly Blend crew scours the web looking for obscure, bizarre, interesting and informative real estate (or real estate related) stories.

So brew yourself a fresh cup of coffee and enjoy these stories. Maybe even share them with friends or colleagues. Happy reading!
Here are my weekly picks:
Transport yourself to the Moonrise Kingdom and live like The Royal Tenenbaums. This house for rent near Kingston, Ontario features rooms based on Wes Anderson movies.
Quebec’s legendary Le Studio, also known as Rush’s Abbey Road, recently burnt down in a suspicious fire. Someone call The Police! (Sting’s band also recorded albums there).
Don’t stare at these prices for too long, you might harm your eyes. House rentals for Monday’s solar eclipse are going for as much as $10,000 a night!
Ever wished you could play Mario Kart in real life? Head to Niagara Falls once this multi-level go-kart racetrack is ready. It’s as close as you’ll get to racing along the Rainbow Road.
Pssh, this engagement ring is only one carrot. This Alberta woman’s diamond ring went missing in 2004 and recently sprouted wrapped around a carrot on the family farm.
When that $72-million house won’t sell, consider raising the price to an even $80 million.
Holy moly! This modest semi-detached house for sale in Ireland is nothing special, but the neighbour’s backyard is – it features a prominent religious shrine.
Finding the perfect office space is tough and with rental prices continuing to soar, consider putting an office under a bridge. This secret studio has great access to transportation.
See you later, alligator! A Hamilton, Ontario man was shocked to see an alligator lounging by his backyard pool on his 25th wedding anniversary. The more traditional gift to give is silver, not reptiles.
