Looking for a new apartment can be difficult anywhere, but in NYC it’s a bloodsport, and tales of shitty apartments are legendary.

Enter “The Worst Room,” a Tumblr chronicling, all-too-accurately, the shitty state of New York City apartment shopping. Tumblr creator Ryan says he made the site to “share the Craigslist postings I sift through on a daily basis trying to find decent, affordable housing in New York City.” And boy, are these crappy and overpriced — these apartments all-too-closely resemble crime scenes. And yes, I can say with experience, these are completely accurate depictions of how shitty and expensive city living can be. (There are also pleasant and affordable pads, too.)

So let’s take a gander at a few more terrible rooms Ryan’s found, shall we?

Who has the time or the inclination to online date? Why bother with it, when you can just outsource it to an online dating surrogate, someone who will do all the “connecting with another living human being” junk for you. Some real peach of a guy created this Craigslist ad, in search of a woman to do all the dating heavy lifting. What’s he looking for?  Funny you ask! “Ideal candidate for this job is similar to dating candidates sought: Pretty, thin, educated female in her 20s or 30s (with great taste and strong writing ability.)”

Sounds totally reasonable — as the plot of a shitty Justin Long movie.

The full ad is after the jump. [Betabeat]

Your Daily Reminder That Men Are Capable Of Being Truly Terrible

I am in the midst of an apartment search right now. It is annoying, frustrating, and anxiety-producing, but it is just Something That Must Happen. Somewhat more exasperating than just looking for an apartment is the fact that I am also seeking a roommate situation, which has led me to where else but that great cesspool of all things terrible and soul-crushing, Craigslist. Just how soul-crushing could it possibly be?, you inquire, doubting my integrity and ability to separate Truly Bad Things from Simply Irritating Ones because I am a young and very sensitive woman inclined to hyperbole and melodrama. Here, I present to you an actual post I was led to by my innocent hunt for a suitable (female) housemate. I would now like to wash my hands, and then maybe sew up my vagina. Inquire within!

Daenerys Stormborn Targaryen Roleplayer Seeks Robb Stark Look-A-Like For Iron Throne Sex Romp

At this point in the “Game of Thrones” TV series (season three started a week-and-a-half ago), Daenerys Stormborn Targaryen and Robb Stark have not shared any screentime. (I don’t know if they will in the future, as I haven’t read all of George R. R. Martin’s books.) But they are both vying to rule the Iron Throne — and that is where this horny New Orleans-area Craigslister’s sexual roleplaying fantasy will take place between herself and the Robb Stark look-a-like she seeks. If you happen to have Robb’s dark curls and pouty lips and are interested in taking on the kinky role, be prepared to bring your own costumes. ”You will need to provide your own clothing,” the poster instructs. “Please keep in mind that you will have recently participated in a battle and been thrown in a dungeon, so you will not be wearing your nicest furs. I’m looking for a Stark in the streets but a wildling in the sheets.” Ooh, I might have just gotten a little damp in my smallclothes! [The Daily Beast]

Moving Across The Country
Ami gives Winona advice for her big move! Read More »

In preparation for our move to Nashville, my boyfriend Nick and I took Ami’s advice and decided to sell most of our stuff instead of spending the money to move it 2,300 miles. So for the past few weeks, we’ve been welcoming a string of Craigslist buyers into our home as we clear out all of our furniture and pretty much every other non-essential item we own. It’s been a bit stressful, but mostly liberating. In honor of Spring Cleaning Week, I thought it would be fun to document some of the lessons I’ve learned from the experience, because selling stuff on Craigslist is a great way to clear out clutter, even if you’re not moving across the country… Keep reading »

South by Southwest, the annual music/film/tech/excuse to eat tacos festival, began last week. It’s a great way to see a bunch of bands and network, we suppose, but it’s also an opportunity to make new friends, in exchange for “services.” At least according to one Craigslist poster, who offered perhaps one of the creepier SXSW living arrangements.

So says the ad from user “Daniel,” “This is a simple deal: A free place to stay with many extras in exchange for your services.” Oh, services? What a quaint way of demanding sex! Check out the full add after the jump. Keep reading »

Only on Craigslist would you find a help wanted ad for a woman to fart on a birthday cake for $50. It’s already awkward to show up at a birthday party when you don’t know anyone, but imagine being the cake farter. You show up at the bar, dressed in your most gas-friendly outfit and a guest is like, “Hey, how do you know John?”And you’re like, “Oh, I don’t John. I’m just here to fart on his birthday cake.” Other thoughts: what’s funny about farting on a perfectly good birthday cake? That’s not humor, that’s blasphemy. I would like to talk to the person who took this cake farting gig. Please contact me. I have many questions for you. [Craigslist via Gothamist]

Who Will Be Spinning The Set For Your Hippie Birth?

You may want to consider hiring San Francisco’s Premiere Birthing DJ to spin the soundtrack for your hippie birth. According to the CraigsList ad, “Sarah Palin’s gay friend” specializes in YogaTronica, WombStep, Deep Doula House, Electrowifery, and Placenta dub. So, you can choose the style that fits your birthing plan best. “What better way to bring a loved one into the world than with kindred all around, doing some form of movement that can only be described as Ecstatic Dance’s Hippier Cousin?” asks the ad. Well, I’ve never given birth, but I think it’s safe to say that I wouldn’t want a rave going on around me while I was pushing a baby out of my vagina. But that’s just me. Ditto for a placenta poetry circle. Either this is the most finely written piece of parody or birthing DJs are a thing. I sure hope it’s the former. [Craigslist]

sex exposed

For as long as we’re aware of other people’s dirty bits and sexual desires, we’re aware of how funny it can be to talk about them. My niece, for instance, thinks that “butt” is the funniest word in the English language. But she’s six. The grown-up version of “Ha ha, butt!” are those conversations — either whispered sotto voce or way-too-loud after a few too many cocktails — about other people’s personal lives, particularly the parts we’re not supposed to know. She did what? He wanted to put his thingy where? Oh my God. EW. 

I’m not above finding the TMI details of other people’s private lives fascinating. Or sharing my own. Hey, the dude who wanted to lock me inside a dog cage and pee on me makes for an interesting story. (Hopefully he has found someone less claustrophobic to fulfill that pecadillo.) It satisfies the same morbid curiosity that wants to see celebrity nude pics. We want to know what other people are packing, I suppose so we can compare it against ourselves.

But there’s a point where a line needs to be drawn. It needs to be drawn hard. We need to stop posting people’s real-life personal, private, sexual information on the Internet for the purpose of mocking or shaming them. Keep reading »

Need a used car? You may want to consider Bristol Palin’s Dodge Challenger. It’s a 2010 model with only 14,510 miles. You can get it on Craigslist for $27,500 (OBO). And yes, it’s really hers. There’s a picture of her and Tripp standing next to it. Any takers?

Why she would put her car up for sale on CL is beyond me. There are more discreet and reliable ways to sell a used vehicle. Unless she’s trying to get more for it than it’s worth by using her “celebrity” power. Hmmmm. [Buzzfeed]
