Re: Landlords on my case about my cleanliness!

Oh wow- how did you find that? I've hunted myself down online and tried to hide my address, but I know it's still findable. But sorry to say that balcony is UPSTAIRS from me. Those people moved out and new people recently moved in- I've wondered about what that windmill was. Their balcony was pretty hidden until the great Treemageddon of 2013, but this past year I've had new trees growing in the back and this time I'll fight any attempts to take those out until I move, after which they can do what they want with them.

Re: Landlords on my case about my cleanliness!

I've actually never been much of a Star Trek fan- it's one of those things I can either take or leave. The oldest Star Trek related stuff I have are these off-air recordings from 1976, which that project said isn't really important. I love the video effect that WTHR used to transition in and out of commercials:

After Star Trek on WGN in Chicago:

And in the middle of one episode there:

TBH, you made it pretty easy to find you. I thought you were joking, at first, but then thought I'd have a look, and there you were.

Re: Landlords on my case about my cleanliness!

For the second time, that is NOT my balcony, nor my windmill!

I just MIGHT make an exception for Celine Dion- I know how much all of Canada loves her, don't test me!

Wrong ... Correct answer: The large windmill in the living room left no space for the small windmill.

Re: Landlords on my case about my cleanliness!

And funny enough, once the tree was cut down I thought the management would give them crap about all the stuff exposed on the balcony, but I don't think they did. If that HAD been my balcony then I would have retorted with "Well, it wasn't visible until YOU cut the tree down!" That apartment is HUGE by the way, two stories and at least twice as big as my place- if I lived there I guarantee that it at least would not be as cluttered as it is down here. At worst I'd have one bedroom that was a mess with the rest of the place relatively clear. I can't imagine moving all my crap upstairs though- my parents helped me a bit with moving in here, and when it was all done the punchline was "Aren't you glad I didn't get the SECOND floor?"

Why didn't you ask the NEIGHBORS that when you were here, Mark?

Alan, why are you keeping a windmill in your balcony?

It's not a windmill, it's an escape copter so when all his shit catches fire he can get away.

I'm not even talking about the fucking windmill that doesnt belong to him, sadly. I'm taking about him. It's a goddamn failure. Mental issues, my ass. He's just a lazy fuck. The gut is like taffer. Making bs excuses to not do anything.

Do his parents know wtf his place looks like? Apparently the money he is given doesn't go toward the crap but if my adult son had a place like that? Shiiiiiiiiiiiit. I wouldn't even the give the fucker any money.

Re: Landlords on my case about my cleanliness!

Guys, it's not Alan's windmill! It's Alan's replica of the pinwheel from the Nickelodeon series "Pinwheel."

Alan, do you have any tapes of that show?

Re: Landlords on my case about my cleanliness!

Alan, did you get the windmill from a miniature golf course?

They were going to throw it out and he couldn't let that happen. He wants to show future generations what mini golf was.

But seriously, throw that shit out. There is no reason for you to have a windmill on your balcony.

Re: Landlords on my case about my cleanliness!

The windmill is probably form a miniature golf course where Alan had a date with a girl he liked, so when the place went out of business, he got the windmill from them and held on to it for sentimental reasons. Still, it looks pretty bad in the back balcony there.
