Faceoff Friday: Monopoly pieces

Faceoff Friday: Monopoly pieces

I might just say this is the greatest Faceoff Friday ever. Today’s Faceoff Friday is a old-fashioned group melee between all 8 classic Monopoly board game pieces. Who would win?

pcworld shares 10 great PC mods. They’re all impressive, but I included only 8 of the 10 in the blog post image above. I left out the Spider-Man and orange-colored PCs. I don’t think they come close to the other 8. My personal favorites are the Beaver and the crazy typewriter. Thanks to Mark R […]

space invaders sweater

I know it’s the beginning of September and it’s still 90 degrees outside (in Chicago at least), so it doesn’t make much sense to have a blog post about a sweater. But I’m doing it anyways cuz this is my Chicago-style hot dog blog. Take a gander at the Space Invaders sweater. What makes this […]
