What Dreams May Come in this Cozy $600 Glen Park Sleeping Pod

If you search Craigslist “rooms & shares” for a space in Glen Park under $600, only one option comes up — and it’s a blast from the fucking future.

This “comfortable sleeping pod” is available in somebody’s “clean, spacious garage.” Kind of like a cross between a tanning bed and the chamber that Jeff Goldblum emerged from in The Fly, the pod apparently features soothing ultraviolet light, a fluorescent-ring vanity mirror, and, hopefully, enough oxygen to keep you conscious once the pod hatch closes.

Lest you think $600 is pricey for what’s basically a tricked out Speed Racer bed, the pod includes all utilities, plus access to the main house’s bathroom, kitchen, and living room. Sure, the garage holding the pod looks snuff-film stark, but didn’t you love the smell of fresh gasoline as a kid? 

It's hard to say at this point whether the ad is a joke or somebody's sad reality. We reached out to the pod owner for more information and will update the post if we hear back.

  • 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.'"
