Items from Real World Brooklyn house for sale

A random collection of furniture and furnishings that were in The Real World Brooklyn house are for sale.

They’re being sold on Craigslist today only, and the person with the “highest offer” has to pay cash and then pick up the item in Red Hook (presumably at the Pier 41 location) today, Friday, or Monday. There’s no word where the money goes; items from the Chicago house were auctioned for charity, which is where I got my living room curtains.

About a dozen items from The Real World Brooklyn house are listed for sale, and all include photographs of the items and thus the house’s interior. Among the items are a chandelier made of recycled plastic silverware, two Schwinn bikes, and two Ikea Hemnes beds.

There’s also bar stools, a bench and chair, and an XBox 360 Rock Band set.

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
