If that walk-in closet you've been renting is starting to feel as thought you're living beyond your means, here's a chance to down grade and save some cash.  

A cynical someone posted this plausible ad to Craigslist, hoping to help "Twitterites" score affordable housing in the Bay Area on a Tech Bro's salary. According to the ad, it's a steal — you live in trunk of this car parked in the Tony Berkeley hills and in exchange you pay $2,000 and all parking tickets. 

It's clean and carpeted and on a nice night, it's the perfect dinner spot for two.

Check out the ad:

Hey Yahooians and Twitterites — you've always dreamed of living in SF, but hell - no one can afford a broom closet for $3,500 a month. But the East Bay is still rockin' and I've got the perfect place for you: the trunk of my car! It's spacious, carpeted, with lots of windows and great light. Monthly utilities are minimal: you're responsible for half the monthly wifi cost (it's a bit of a stretch from the house, but you can usually get at least a bar or two) and any parking tickets that accrue — that's all! Sure, you may be thinking that $2000 is a lot for a car trunk, but, hey, this is the most desirable part of Berkeley. It's quiet, safe (mostly) and you'll be just a few minutes away from the gourmet ghetto! Plus the rent is comparable to most of the other tiny closets in the area going for $2250, so you're saving $250 — it's a steal! This is likely to get snapped up quickly, so Act Now!

  • 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.'"
