Heart and soul, la la la la la la, heart and soul, la la la la la la


"Thank you, sir, but it's time to go. Sir? Excuse me? The house has been sold... the new people would like to move in. Please, sir. Please stop playing. Please. Please. Please."

(Another find by Ekaterina.)

Now, presenting Waylon Flower and Madam!

Is that a wax figure???? Or the resident ghost? And what's with the creepy doll on the piano? Great house though. I'd take it in a heartbeat, even with the ghost. :)

Bonus: you can play Qbert hopping from the tub to the towel rack in the master bath (photos 19 and 37).

Knatolee said...

I had the exact same thought: wax figure! Or perhaps a corpse?

Karen said...

I think it looks like a wax figure as well. Creepy, and kooky at the same time, a little more creepy, however.

40 pictures?!! 2 pianos? Who owns this place, Barry Manilow?

"Hmm.. we should definitely keep the piano in the picture, but how can we class it up a little bit? .....I know! Honey, find a statue and put it in a tux! Quickly! This is the kind of plans that sell houses!"

What your wax butler does when you are not home...

Aim said...

That's creepy!

God, I hope that isn't a living person, if it is? He is decidedly unwell. Yet, it is really difficult to hope that it's a wax figure because that's actually more disturbing.

Yeah, this place doesn't give me house envy. It's a rather chilly looking place and here's a safe bet on something that was never said upon entering the joint, "It's just so welcoming and cozy."

Also, jeez, they may like pianos, but the freaking love their TVs! Flatscreens in the wall, projection screen in the master, sets of different sizes and time periods ALL OVER that house...hell, a flatscreen in the wall above the breakfast bar. They really must adore the crap out of their cable.

Then just one little computer. People are gonna get hurt if those folks miss their soaps, that's the message that place seems to be sending.

Okay, The Tall Man is in place. Now where's that little flying Sphere O' Death?

You know, that place has some "taste specific finishes" as the woman from "My House is Worth What?" would say. Not everyone is going to groove on things like white marble flooring, which really is a bit ostentatious. Same thing with the black marble bath, it's a very showy sort of place, and a little outdated.

So that makes me wonder why the real estate agent didn't point out that mummified Manny tickling the ivories wouldn't so much say, "But we have whimsy." and instead would say, "And the vibe of the place is not only tacky, but creepy!"

Yeah, high end buyers will flock. Sure.

There is something dreadfully wrong in nearly every view of this hostile looking house.

The perfect illustration of, "All those feathers and it still can't fly."

Yucko.

dogface said...

Is that one of those waxy dudes they sell at Halloween stores that hold platters of food and drinks and crap for you?

Charlene said...

Is that an albino lemur in the front stairway?

Nocturnal Queen said...

Creepy.

Chazya said...

that's a corps, its definitely a well preserved corpse. Don't you smell the strange scent of formaldehyde and embalming fluids?

Chazya said...

this is a movie set for a Steven king novel...i swear...

Chazya said...

and whats with all the TV's, no wonder they are selling, they never did anything productive!

Glory von Hathor said...

The master bathroom floor is pretty damn cool.
The dead dude not so much.

Theodosia said...

On the other hand, if the house came with a competent pianist, I might let him hang around....

Callisto said...

This entire house makes me feel so uneasy. I felt uncomfortable looking through the photos. Man, that was weird.

Anonymous said...

I'm just glad you all can see him, too.

Bald Outing said...

haha that is too funny

Vinita said...

Beautiful, it's just beautiful. envy those who are about to take possession of it.

Wyz_sub10 said...

I guarantee you that dude has been dead since 1987.

Christina said...

Not bad, if you like living in a hotel lobby. Almost nothing about that house looks or feels like an actual home.

And yeah, the wax dude playing the piano is beyond creepy.

LI Laura said...

I don't think I would be able to walk on that weird Escher-like bathroom floor.
