SF Occupier Looking for Roommate to Share Tent for Cheap Rent

The Occupy Movement has given us reporters plenty of fodder for good stories -- some informative and others entertaining. And while it appears Occupy SF has ceased to exist as a camp since police raided the encampment on Wednesday, there are still plenty of amusing stories to tell.

For instance, this San Francisco guy is desperate to reoccupy the Financial District, which is why he is looking for someone to help him set up his tent  -- and occupy it with him. So he did what any normal searching San Franciscan  would do: He posted an ad on Craigslist.

Although it's far from your average "looking for a housemate" ad.

Here's his sales pitch:

"I want a roommate to help set up a new camp and watch my back in case the NAzis with the GERMAN dog come back to kick me out. I also have a video camera we can share in case they harrass us.

Aside from sounding paranoid, here's a little more about him: "I am clean and keep a neat tent. I shave and shower every other week, we can alternate so some one is always in the tent. My girlfriend will bring food so we don't have to leave."

And if that isn't enticing enough, the rent is cheaper than a cardboard box.  "$1.00 rent is due upon our

agreement and is due on the first of every month. It is not refundable

as your dollar symbolizes your dedication to the tent and our cause," according to the ad.

Here's the full ad:

Any takers?

  • 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.'"
