    As it is the number 5 written next to the Slaughter House, the literay reference must be "Slaughter House 5", a novel by Kurt Vonnegut.

    Ha! That's great Teo! And I know you have other areas with real-world and cultural references. Perhaps a Showcase tour when you have time?

    I once did a Joyce call out with the Irish stuff: it was the first time I realized I suck at visual jokes. I tried forever to play up the Skinner-Norman Bates jokes from the show by arranging Sleep-E-Z and the Skinner house to approximate the Bates motel (Psycho started as a book, so a very indirect literary reference). Never got it to work, but I still have the Skinner house on a hill. There are other references in my town, but I'm simply not any good at it.

    I can think of a few neighbors who have allusions to film and TV in their towns--not literary references but the same sort of thing. I hope they read this thread.

    Yep, one end of my airport runway. Yes, it is supposed to be Slaughterhouse Five...probably should have mentioned that!

    This is my ode to Edward Scissorhands. I also had topiary and ice sculptures sprinkled through the neighborhood below

    Edited to note that this is obviously a film reference and not literary but I felt it fit in "-) Any ideas on other ones we could try to make? Film, literary, pop culture...?

    I went ahead and changed the thread title into something a bit more broad! Love the Edward Scissorhands area and the 42, both great ideas!

    This design is an oldie of mine, however I though it would fit this thread :) I was heavily inspired by the great Gatsby when designing Mr Burns place :) I later added a few more things like several limos parked in front but unfortunately never took a picture of the final result before blowing up my town.

    I just remembered this thread. Here's my "Psycho" tribute/reference. In some other thread there was a great Psycho themed picture. I'd love to see it again if anyone else knows where to find it?
