Random reactions –

Is the Monument Avenue nominee the vinyl windows house? It looks like it and it would be hilarious for them to pick that one.

If the taqueria wins it’s got to be hands down the “most masturbated in” hammer winner ever right? Turning a spank parlor into a food joint is some kind of miracle.

Good set overall. The Marshall Street house is one of my favorites.

Alex – the Monument Ave vinyl window house is this one, across the street. YOu can see the apartment building that has been nominated in the background.

When do they announce the MC Hammer awards? (You can’t touch this…)

No, the entry at 3000 Monument Avenue is NOT the ” vinyl windows house”.
