The key to bartering on Craigslist, like many things in life, is being able to make a realistic assessment of worth. While you may treasure your collection of small ceramic cats, most people will not want to trade you, say, a leather couch for them. In fact, probably the best thing you can net with ceramic cats is more ceramic cats. Anyway.

The item offered for trade in this week's Bizarre Barter is not a set of ceramic cats, but a set of slot machines. It seems like you could get some decent stuff with a pair of slot machines for trade. They're reasonably expensive and, as the poster acknowledges, would be a welcome addition to any game room. What does the poster want in exchange for their slot machines?

In no particular order, they would swap for: "snowmobiles ,dirtbikes, hot rods, choppers harleys , anything with a

moter (sic), trucks, tools equipment, money, prop 215 medacine (more sic), trailers, toy

haulers, hoovercrafts (very sic), submarines, all the good stuff, boats,

wakeskates (?), outboard motors, sand rails, need a ford 351 motor, legal

guns, cash, shotguns, quads, four wheeler, jeeps, rock crawlers,

chainsaws, flat screens..."

And, oh, yeah, "art."

  • 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.'"
