How Atlanta Falcons Fans Reacted Last Night

February 6th, 2017 · 2 Comments

By using pareidolia (seeing human faces in inanimate objects), let’s review what happened during last night’s Super Bowl game.

When the score was 28-3, Atlanta Falcons fans had smirks on their faces. “Ha ha ha, Patriots, you’re gonna lose.”

170206a

Then it was tied 28-28!! “Oh no!!!”

170206b

And then when the Patriots won the game in overtime, the Atlanta Falcons fans were not happy. “#@*%^!@!*”

Before & After Home Staging Examples

February 4th, 2017 · 5 Comments

I listed a condo that was currently rented. Photos mean a lot to buyers. It’s important to leave a good first impression. My first impression of this condo was not good. I immediately got to work, moving and removing items before taking photos.

Before Kitchen. Looks cluttered. And the tenant had recently cooked sausage, leaving a greasy fry pan.

170204a

After Kitchen. I cleared the refrigerator and removed the knives, soap, cutting board, measuring cups, utensils, spatula, fry pan, towel, and iPad. You will notice that the microwave clock times do not make sense. After removing the items and moving on to the next room, I realized it would be nice to share before & after photos. I painstakingly replaced all items that were moved (so the tenant wouldn’t know). And then took the photo. Thus, the Before photo is actually the After After photo.

170204b

Before Living Room.

170204c

After Living Room. I removed the tray, the plate, the glass, the dog bed, family photos, the dog, paper towels eaten by the dog, and glass cleaner.

170204d

Before Office.

170204e

After Office. I removed the bicycle, golf club bag, and inflatable swan.

Please Do Not Urine

January 24th, 2017 · 6 Comments

Please do not urine on the toliet seat. Thank you very much. We aim to please; you aim too, please.

170124e

We don’t make this stuff up, folks. These are actual photos from a house for sale. Check out the hole in the wall behind the toilet.

170124a

Cluttered bedroom.

170124d

Another cluttered bedroom. The description of the house states that the owners moved out and left their items behind.

170124f

The new buyer gets to handle all of this.

170124b

This bedroom is used as a crafts room. Notice the Wasp & Hornet Killer spray can.

170124c

Double oven.

170124g

Pink ceiling in the family room. It almost looks like carpet! Two oxygen tanks in the corner, because this house will take your breath away.

170124h

No smoking.

170124j

And we’re told the air conditioning does not work.

All this can be yours, if the price is right.

Shirtless Joe’s Place

January 18th, 2017 · 8 Comments

Shirtless Joe welcomes you to his Tonopah, Arizona home. Please come inside.

There he is! Shirtless Joe!

Joe likes to cook.

The odor really affects your appetite.

P.E.A.C.E. = Please Extract All Clutter Elements

Joe likes to save everything.

Joe keeps a close eye on all of his possessions.

Is this what you call vehicular manslaughter?

You never know when you might need something. Better to have it available.

Here’s another angle of the pallets.

Let’s ask Joe if that room addition has a building permit.

It looks well-built.

That yard is looking a little tired.

Good luck.

Holiday Inn Wants Their Towel Back

January 15th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Our reader Karen sent us these photos of an Aberdeen, Maryland home. Here’s evidence of a stolen Holiday Inn towel! Shame on them.

170115aberdeenmd1

The other bathroom has a busy look. Let’s remove all the stuff on each side of the shower.

170115aberdeenmd2

Which looks twice as bad when it’s reflected in a mirror.

170115aberdeenmd3

Yes, it’s a game room, but the rifle could go, as well as the Pepsi clock and life preserver.

170115aberdeenmd4

When you enter the house, you see visual clutter. Clear out the foyer.

170115aberdeenmd5

Nice home. Just needs tidying up here and there. Moral of the story: present your home in the best manner and don’t steal hotel towels.
