A LOOK AT KANYE WEST'S STAR WARS-THEMED HOUSING COMMUNITY!

Kanye West wants to stop classism with his housing community in Calabasas. The rapper’s latest futuristic venture is actually super cool. He’s building an inspired by Luke Skywalker’s childhood home on Tatooine from the classic Star Wars universe. Dimensions for the homes are measured out at 50 feet tall and sit on an estimated 300-acre land plot. Kanye assigns his team to research the history of housing to make sure this project is as revolutionary as it looks. The project is meant to break the barriers that separate classes "the rich, the middle class, and the poor." Forbes writer Zack O'Malley Greenburg was given a tour of the compound and said the artist has a clear vision of the development. It started last April in an interview with Charlemagne tha God, when Kanye revealed his purchase of the property, on which he hoped to build his "first community" made up of five units. "I’m going to be one of the biggest real-estate developers of all time, what Howard Hughes was to aircrafts and what Henry Ford was to cars, just the relationships I have with architects, my understanding of space and sacred proportions, just this new vibe, this new energy," Kanye said. "We gonna develop cities."

HERE'S EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT GHOST MONTH!

A wandering ghost is already a scary thought in itself, what more a month-long period of supposed curses and misfortunes? “Ghost Month” is a popular tradition that is widely observed in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, Malaysia, and Vietnam. Here in the Philippines, the Filipino-Chinese community strictly follow the tradition which usually takes place on the 15th day of the seventh month of the lunar calendar. Asians will observe the Hungry Ghost Month starting August 1, as they shy away from business deals, wedding dates, surgery, and other activities that might affect their luck. HERE ARE WAYS TO COUNTER BAD LUCK: * Do not attend funerals or visit the sick to avoid yin energy or dark influences. * Do not sleep facing a mirror as they’re known in Feng Shui to be “Soul Stealers”. * Do not pick up money on the street * Do not lean against the wall * Do not turn head around if someone pats u on the shoulder * Do not hang your clothes at night Taoist and Buddhist believe that “hungry ghosts" cause misfortune. They are those that committed suicide or died of violent deaths such as murder, rape, and other accidents, crime to unexpected deaths and business failures. Zhong Yuan Jie or the Hungry Ghost Festival, is often compared to Chinese Halloween, which is believed that souls can temporarily leave the afterlife and roam around the Earth. The Chinese community worship a giant effigy representing the King of Hades during this month in the hope that he would control the ghosts let loose for a month-long holiday on Earth.   IMPORTANT NOTE* Part of the tradition is you have to burn faux money. The more paper money you burn, the more wealth you receive.* Prayer is very important during the whole event.* People should avoid wearing black but red, wear lots of red.* Avoid swimming, major surgery, buying condos and houses, signing contracts and construction activities at home, hiring people for companies, courtship nor whistling. People who believe in this event offers “Happy Foods” to the ghosts or “spirits roaming the Earth”, such as incense, Lechon (roast pig), candies, rice, beer and cigarettes, because they believe that these foods make the ghosts happy.
