The Crazy Neighbor

A cou­ple of months ago, @geekygirldawn started up a web­site called The Crazy Neighbor. I guess she has a few crazy neigh­bors. The for­mat of the site is like many oth­ers out there — I Can Has Cheezburger, Picture Is Unrelated, GraphJam, and so on. Users sub­mit pho­tos and those pic­tures get posted.

While I can­not say that I have “crazy” neigh­bors, I do pass by a unique house on the way to a cou­ple of restau­rants and cof­fee shops. The house has a bunch of gar­goyles and they also have some kind of clas­sic video game thing going on. There are always a few, some­times as many as a dozen, tarp-covered video game cab­i­nets stowed in their side yard. Honestly, I would have thought you would need more than a tarp to pro­tect a cab­i­net in Portland. They also have a mov­ing van eter­nally parked out front. On the few occa­sions I have seen the back of the van open (never attended; there’s never any­one around at that house), there have been more game cab­i­nets inside.

After a recent post to The Crazy Neighbor of a house with a sin­gle gar­goyle, I thought I’d sub­mit the video game gar­goyle house:
