Macklemore Prank Calls Lady On Craigslist Scalping His Tickets

macklemore prank calls
"I Don't Know If The Bloke's Worth $65 A Ticket ..."

Awkward. Macklemore called up a woman who was scalping tickets to one of his shows on Craigslist and gabbed to her for about five minutes in a (terrible) fake British-y accent. As far as prank calls go, it’s more uncomfortable than funny — he sounds like a lonely weirdo. But it’s kind of amazing when he reveals to the scalper that she’s actually talking to Macklemore himself the whole time … and then she kinda regrets the parts where she talked shit about him.  [YouTube]

This Craigslist Missed Connections Post Awesomely Tells Off A Street Harasser

A Minneapolis woman who is now pretty much my hero seems to have gotten fed up with the helpless feeling that comes along with being leered at on the street. She posted an open letter to the man who shouted nasty comments at her from his car on Craigslist Missed Connections, basically voicing the internal monologue of every begrudging catcall recipient there ever was.

The woman, who calls herself “the blonde you shouted at,” tells it like it is and explains just how damaging the dude’s actions are with statements like:

…Thanks to you I would spend the entire train ride home feeling scrutinized and gross because you didn’t have the willpower or maturity to keep your mouth shut; that your wife and daughters or at the very least your mother deserve better than a cowardly man who shouts at women from the safety of his car.

This May Be The Weirdest Craigslist Missed Connections Ad Ever

This May Be The Weirdest Craigslist Missed Connections Ad Ever

Waffle & Wolf is a waffle shack in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, that serves all manner of amazing waffles, both savory and sweet. Apparently, Waffle & Wolf is also where a reddish-haired man works that reminds this Craigslist poster of her deceased father. At first, the ad reads like a woman searching for a potentially long-lost family member — could the ginger waffle maker be her half-brother?! But no. She indicates that despite the resemblance, the chances of them being related are slim — but couldn’t they pretend for the sake of her incest-fantasy? Yes, this Craigslist post (which has since been deleted) quickly goes from sweet to sexual and also really kind of sad. Keep reading »

$800 Room For Rent In Brooklyn, Must Love Strong Opinions Syria

Roommate Problems?
Five common issues and how to deal with them. Read More »

Lucca and I have been discussing a possible move to Brooklyn, but have been a little disappointed to discover that the rental market is not that much better than Manhattan. So when I saw this ad for a $800 room in a prime Williamsburg apartment, I was like, Hmm, maybe there are still deals to be had in Brooklyn! CLICK. Shoulda known. As is the case with the majority of real estate deals in this fair city of mine, this one has a catch. The apartment’s remaining roommate loves discussing the situation in Syria. Like, constantly. Weirdly enough, so does Lucca! Too bad this pad isn’t pet friendly. [Craigslist via Free Williamsburg]

True Story: My Crazy Craigslist Casual Encounter

The results are in — after asking you guys to share with us the thing you’d most like to check off your to-do list, we’ve got a winner! Turns out sex with a near stranger is something that we’re all kinda into — check out this piece on using Craigslist for more than just finding an apartment, and be sure to see “The To Do List” starring Aubrey Plaza, in theaters today!

When I was 23, I moved to Seattle from New York City, for no particular reason except that I felt compelled to. When I got there, I was coming down from a pretty irreverent sex life in the Big Apple. I’d just had my first foursome and I was at what you could call a sexual peak. So basically, I was horny all the time.

I moved into a condominium which was like living on Pluto or some planet where I was the only inhabitant. My new condo had an elevator, a gym downstairs, two bathrooms, and a dishwasher. I’d never lived in a nice place before –  especially one with a dishwasher — and I truly didn’t know what to do with myself. Keep reading »

Graphic Designer Posts Craiglist Ad Asking Other People To Work For Free

If you’re a graphic designer, or know a graphic designer, you’ve probably heard them complain about how often they’re asked to work for free. Designers are often “invited” to do work on spec, with the hopes that their designs will be used by a company. Companies do this, promising that “it’ll be a great piece for your portfolio.” But what it really boils down to is people working for free, and companies reaping all the rewards. And this is especially prevalent on Craigslist.

This same thing happens in a lot of other creative industries: Writing, modeling, you name it. For those just starting out, it may make sense to work for free to build up their portfolios. But more and more companies are relying heavily on free labor to do the work, leaving skilled creatives out in the cold. That may be why one disgruntled graphic designer posted the following message to Craigslist: Keep reading »

Man Seeks “Cronut Slut” On Craigslist

Are cupcakes anti-feminist? Hell no! Read More »

It was only a matter of time before cronuts, the delicious pastry baby of a croissant and a doughnut, made its way to the Craigslist “Casual Encounters” section. Since chef Dominque Ansel birthed the cronut, they’ve been are so hard to get your mouth on that the people of NYC have taken extreme measures to taste one. Predictably, some have posted Craigslist ads offering to pay up to $40 — that’s eight times the retail price! — for just one cronut.

And once you’ve offered to pay a ridiculous sum of money for a pastry, you’re just a hop, skip and a jump away from trading a cronut for a blowjob. “I want a dirty little slut who is willing to blow me for a genuine Dominique Ansel Bakery cronut,” says the Craigslist ad with the headline “Seeking Cronut Slut.” He’s 34 and has a fresh supply of cronuts for the right woman. But where is he getting his cronut supply? I’m tempted to reply just to see if I can get him to reveal his sources. Must. Try. Cronut. [Huffington Post]

Amanda Bynes, You Are Loved

Even in the throes of her video-making, bong-throwing, wig-wearing, Twitter insulting breakdown, somebody still wants to marry Amanda Bynes. Melissa the Great (aka The Love Vault) of Tilicum, Washington, posted an impassioned Craigslist ad proposing her hand in “gay marriage” to Amanda:

“I have seen you since I was a young folk in high school 9th Grade, 10th Grade, you took me away with your show. You are so deep and you allowed me to feel things about myself, like how I can talk to myself and answer myself. Its a road less traveled dear Amanda but you pulled it off and allowed me to relax to be who I was — a costume loving, creative goofball with a camera just like you!!

Amanda I would take your hand in gay marriage, but lets not be so fast with our approach. Nothing breaks my heart worse than the shattering glass of the bong from way up high… and you, to me, are way up high! Pieces of the bong scattered like pieces of my heart, And I want you to help me pick them up!! … I want to move you here to my house Amanda Bynes. I got half an acre we can buy dogs, horses, whatever. I want to take you every where like a young girl takes a raggedy ann…You can fly over, I got a dad, a good dad and we can share him if you do not have a father figure.”

Pregnancy test

A woman is selling genuinely positive pregnancy tests via Craiglist, I guess because she’s pregnant and doesn’t mind peeing on lots of sticks. In the Craiglist post she writes:

Yes, you saw that right! I am selling positive pregnancy tests! Ever since I became pregnant, I have been asked numerous times for a positive test, so I decided to start charging for it! I will take the test the same day you want to pick it up! I dont care what you use it for, not my business! ;)

I am always near my phone, so just send an e-mail!

All that for just $25! Now, let’s just think about why you might want someone else’s used preggo stick. (All of the reasons are vaguely related to “The Maury Povitch Show,” for sure)
