Going through architecture sites, it looks as if all residential projects in London are of the mostly-glass, super clean type, like this one
or the output of these fine people
. Are there residential architects who like to do thing in a more, hm, bohemian, messy way, or is that totally out of fashion?

Help me identify an eccentric artist that gave tours of his house in Seattle around the year 2000. He was obsessed with a number (four or five, maybe) and had many conditions for his tours that hinged upon that number (i.e. needing four people to tour the property, and tours being available in four minute or four hour duration). He might have gone by "[first name

I need some recommendations for TV shows set in small towns with quirky inhabitants. The more eccentric and lovable they are the better. [more inside]

My cat has grown attached to a stuffed animal. Specifically, a raccoon. What instincts are at work here? [more inside]

When I was a child there used to be cryptic messages on BBC Radio Four between the news and weather etc. that were weird and cryptic (as in they shouldn't have been on mainstream radio), but dull - stuff like "Mrs. Smith from Doncaster needs to contact her family in Hull".
I have been told they were used for spies to communicate - does anyone know any more about this? I think it's something like those code words
on the Tube that get announced if there's something going on.
And numbers stations of course!

In my quest to become more distinctive, I'm looking for suggestions of harmless eccentricities to adopt. Who better than the MeFi hive mind to provide them? Anecdotes of eccentric folk you've known in the past welcome.
