We've seen some awful rooms for rent, but it's particularly bad when it's not even a room. Behold the latest Craigslist rental: the back of a pickup truck for $300... a week, and you have to share it!

This satirical post is almost too close to the truth to be funny fiction. Many of us are just a paycheck and one sorry-man-I'll-have-rent-by-the-15th roommate away from living like this. The post goes on to state how you should share a little bit about yourself when responding to the ad due to the likelihood of numerous applications for the cozy spot. How true is that! Forget trying to impress a potential mate, the person we all want to woo is the last clean-background-check roommate in S.F. who has a room above basement level for $800/month. (It makes us rethink the episode of Friends where Ross hangs out with Ugly Naked Guy in hopes of him choosing his apartment application.)

So, if you're looking for a place, bring a basket of muffins to Ocean Beach, and check out the (potential) new abode! 

And for your reading pleasure, the ad in full:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
