At elbow/room we have a rich cultural history of trying to fit into our cabinet. The cabinet is very small and not fit for human habitation. Some might have let that deter them from trying the impossible, But not the folks at elbow/room who continuously rise to the challenge. Most of them can only rise so high, because most of them are tiny people. So far no attempts have been successful but at the same time no attempts have not been funny. Enjoy Andy's most recent attempt.
We once had a neighbor who was very fond of parking directly in front of our door. The entire parking lot would be completely empty and he would decide that the best possible place to park was directly in front of our door. One day we got even. Well sort of... He never actually got to see his car blocked in because we all went home before he left the office. We still enjoyed doing it. Now that it's on the internet, we can actually show it to him.
The other day at lunch everyone was laughing at a joke... everyone but Andy. A bummed out Andy said "I can't wait till I have my own peanut gallery one day." Rebecca, being the diligent worker she is, took it upon herself to quickly throw together some artwork. When Andy went to Starbucks, Rebecca built Andy his Very own peanut gallery right above his computer.
Once upon a time Matt got a phone call from a friend. His friend had an idea just weird enough to interest Matt. What if they ate nothing but turkey sandwiches for the two weeks leading up to Thanksgiving. No snacks, no chips, no foods that weren't turkey sandwiches. They've been taking part in the Turkey Sandwich Gauntlet every year since. This year they decided to retire the tradition. Matt said goodbye the only way he knew how... a shot for shot remake of this music video
Rebecca is a 40 year old man trapped in a 23 year old woman’s body that actually looks more like a 15 year olds body. She hates everyone her own age because she’s better than them, but she’d never tell you that herself, although she did nod in agreement when she read her bio for the first time. She refuses to pay for movies irl or on the internet. Buy her a movie.
Is technically still dating her Jr high boyfriend since they never actually broke up.
Has a healthy unhealthy obsession with avocados.
She will probably prank you.
Andy is an artist in the truest sense of the word. That’s what he wants us to say, but we think Andy is the real piece of work. When Andy talks everyone listens and then laughs, unless Andy is mumbling, in which case he accidentally gets ignored. Andy is the self proclaimed best out of the 4 of us. He has built 65% of the house that he lives in. He one day hopes it will be 100%. Want to help…this weekend maybe?
He doesn’t actually work out, and no one believes this.
Mostly drives in silence
He probably eats more Chick-fil-a than you.
Once in a while you might get Matt to say something nice about someone or something, but today is not the day. As a rule he doesn’t like things that are things. He doesn’t like this post or the person who wrote it. For what it’s worth, he wrote this post. You should also know that he could easily out-snack you. Seriously. Challenge him.
Will not see a movie that is a remake/reboot, or unnecessary sequel.
Has ridiculously strong opinions about arbitrary things.
Refuses to hug Erick.
Erick is short. So was this post, till we added more words. He’ll never actually read it though, because it has words so it’s pretty much a book. He doesn’t read books. Also he’s a food snob. That sounds sort of bad because he’s not a snob. We just didn’t want to use the word foodie because that word is like super hipster and he was into food way before it was cool, which sounds kinda hipster, but seriously Erick’s like the furthest thing from being a hipster. But maybe that makes him a hipster. Take him out to eat and discuss it.
He cried when Charlie found the golden ticket in Willy Wonka.
His wife has cooked dinner for him exactly twice. (no sweat, he loves to cook).
Coffee is the only beverage he drinks.
On this fine day in 2011 elbow/room was born. It pretty much happened just like this GIF implies: Matt helped tiny Erick emerge from an even tinier Erick storage container. Okay, so it didn't happen exctly like that, but however it actually happened (months of planning & tons conversations & ones of quitting our jobs) we're glad to celebrate our 4th birthday today. And like all good 4-year olds we're gonna celebrate by shoving delicious food in our mouths... hopefully... if you buy us a cake... or cookies... or pizza.
Welcome to our website. It only took us 3 years and 11 months. As much as we enjoyed being part of the dark web (whatever that really means) it’s nice to finally have a site that’s indexed by the Google machine. That means no more complaints about people not being able to find us on the Web. Please feel free to complain about something else below.
