Speeding motorcycle -- let's be smart


Charity found this listing, in her neighborhood. I know very little about motorcycles, but I'm pretty certain they're supposed to have two wheels. Or is this a motorized unicycle? Man, I'd love to see that. Vrooom!

it looks like what the storm troopers rode when they were fighting the ewoks...

Looks like a ghost rider materializing just in time to meet with the agent and buyers. He gets frustrated when people ignore everything he says though.

having the ghost rider as your real estate agent might have its perks!

We don't need reason
We don't need logic(al listings)
We just have realty
And we're dang proud of it!

Kinda makes you wonder what else got photoshopped...

That dining room made me cry. Peach walls, red chair covers, crisp white hangings.... Hold me, I'm frightened!

And in that pic of the bedroom, is that a tile headboard, or is the bed in front of the fireplace?

I'm pretty sure the ghost rider is the victim of a human sacrifice that was made in the dining room.

I'm guessing fireplace. But it seems possible that it might be mirrors, too. There used to be a kind of mirror used for decorative mirror walls that had a pattern to it kind of like that. Well, I say "used to be," but I'm being optimistic there, I suppose -- I'd like to think that stuff is a long-gone product of the 70s.

And in another bit of optimism... I think the red dining chair covers were for Christmas, not all the time, so maybe they had something less clashing in there normally. But still, look at that before you post it -- eye pain does not make me want to buy the house. The photo of the Christmas decorations at the bottom of the stairs would have been another good candidate for this blog, too. Wow! The house has some places you can put holiday decorations! I'm so glad I know that, because I sure wouldn't buy a house that didn't!

(On the whole, kind of a cute house!)

Brandy- I think that's mirrors as a headboard, but what kind of ugly wall are they reflecting?? My aunt's old house had a mirror wall with the pattern like anon. is mentioning, but I don't think those are the same kind of tiles.
The dining room has a mirror wall too... ick.

Hah! You need to pass that one on to Photoshop Disasters! ;)

What is it that is floating over the bed? Looks like part of a canopy, but just part of one. There was this episode of Outer Limits where parts of the house were phasing between dimensions. I didn't know that it took place in St. Paul!

These pictures are whole lot of bad! It's like they tried to stage the house but forgot little details (the dining room? the febreeze container on the dresser? the weird, lit tree?)
I really think it's the "details" that make this a real disaster. The house itself is nice enough, but really? c'mon

Did you just make a Daniel Johnston reference? Holy crap i love you.

Julie G. said...

wow. i am impressed with your daniel johnston reference.

A motorized unicycle WOULD be pretty entertaining. :)

Ash said...

The other day I was recycling and a man on a unicycle rolled up towing a shopping cart full of cans. I kid you not.

Old House Junkie said...

Seller is "very motivated". Probably afraid she'll start phasing between dimensions too!

um. it looks like that street may be haunted.
