Somewhere between Myst and an inventory. . Matt McClintock invites you to enter his home and checkout all his neat stuff. Want to see what is in his medicine cabinet? Go ahead. What is in the drawer? Take a look. Perfect for anyone who has ever walked down the street and wondered what the insides of their neighbors houses look like. Beautiful navigation, and oddly compelling content.

Where does he hide the porn?

Hee, hee. I was looking for the same thing. He keeps the stuff right on one of the bookshelves. I guess it's too hard to click "under the mattress".

"They're such beautiful shirts. It makes me sad because I've never seen such - such beautiful shirts before."

As a frustrated real estate agent and/or peeping tom, I find this so fascinating. And he buys his boxers at Old Navy and Gap. That's the kind of thing I need to know.

or his stash, or did I miss the safe, and smoke box. On second thought were is the bar? This is all for the neighbors, right. I thought that was common knowledge living in a home, regardless if you drink alcohol or soda pop. Gee our club house as a kid had one, pop bar that is.

Item #51 of particular interest to persons who will go unnamed.

A) How many damn cabinets do you need in a bathroom?

B) I wonder what his conceptual rules are for replacing items as they expire or are emptied. Will there always be Visine in Mirror cabinet Four, First Floor? What if there's a sale on a competitor's brand? Or will he leave the empty Visine there for us, so we can be assured his house is represented properly online? I wish there was a little more explication, although I've learned more about Apache than I ever wanted to know.

Nice find, ColdChef, but you didn't look in the filing cabinet closely enough. He keeps even better porn in the drawer labeled "Taxes." Now who among us would'a ever thought of something like that?!?

btw, welcome aboard, thomcatspike!

the navigation is great. early on, the web tried some pretty bad spatial navigation metaphors (remember southwest airlines' site?) and most of them didn't work at all. it's nice to see one that does.

Well thanks, yhbc, it's actually nice for me to now to be able to say hi to "all"

Seriously this guy is a neat freak, I mean that drawer, Item #51, my closet is not that organized, and I hang everything. Everything.........
Coldchef was that his closet or drawer?, you found

Yowza! "The Gay Book" Oooh, la la. Bravo, Commish!

Maybe as he opened his house, he opened his life.
And as a good neighbor I will MYOB too. Now like a good neighbor I go next door and drink his beer............on preview I take beer over and eat his Boca Bratwurst Tofu Sausage (link would not post) ooh well the beer well make it taste good, you think.
P.S. Coldchef spell check made your words code, Yowza came up YMCA, and so forth, was that by design. And yes he not me spelled, BRAT WURST.

Apparently he's a Mac man and proud of it. A person could get to know this guy pretty well and never speak to him.

Why is that old Styx song "Too Much Time On My Hands" suddenly looping through my thoughts?

I'm not trying to be insulting or contentious or anything at all really, but I've got to say that this reminds me in some visceral way of the brand-minutiae focus on objects in Bret Easton Ellis's American Psycho, which failed miserably, in a way that this site doesn't, but made some interesting points along the way, which I'm not sure this site does.
