It’s really cold outside, but this Craiglist letter managed to warm our frigid hearts. Read More
Don’t worry, your new roommate has already graciously agreed to take the couch since he “doesn’t sleep much anyway.” Read More
Everyone’s least favorite musical to drag sticky children to (after Cats and RENT), is now filming in New York, and as of right this very second, you could be auditioning for the Jay-Z and Will Smith-backed reboot of Annie. The new film, which starrs Cameron Diaz as Ms. Hannigan and Jamie Foxx as Daddy Warbucks, is holding a casting call as we speak for extras and featured extras.
It’s good money, too, which should offset the tinge of dissapointment that the leading orphan will be played by Beasts of the Southern Wild‘s Quvenzhane Wallis instead of Willow Smith. We know, it’s a blow to us all.
Turns out, women are just super bad at objectifying dudes. Even when they try to put into words the perfect male “personal assistant” profile–such as in this Craigslist ad found by ScalleyWag & Vagabond–they only start by listing physical traits (“Yeah send me a pic or five, dick pics are ok but one should be of your face :)))”) before quickly move on to emotional girlie stuff. (“I don’t want to worry about this person’s feelings, our “dynamic” and all that Massengill commercial type bullshit.”)
Fed up seeing your ex swooning over another woman, fresh on the heels of your breakup? One Houston woman decided to take matters into her own hands, and instead of just Facebook stalking both of them, posted the photo and address of her ex’s new girlfriend in a Craigslist ad soliciting sex.
Update: According to Brokelyn.com, the real author of this post was not an Oberlin graduate at all (could have fooled us), but a Wesleyan alum named Harris Danow, a writer’s assistant on The Newsroom, who for some reason decided to funnel his creative talent into writing fan fiction about being Lena Dunham’s gay ex-lover.
L Magazine referred to it as “fan fiction,” but the insanely long rant about Lena Dunham’s Dick on Craigslist discovered today seems to come straight from the source–if not from her Oberlin ex-boyfriend, than someone who has spent a lot of time researching how this guy would react to the Girls creator’s meteoric rise to fame.
Do you ever get tired of your roommate talking about the same thing over and over again?
Well, one Williamsburg resident certainly did, and has taken the drastic measure of renting their apartment out on Craiglist, because they’re no longer going to listen to their flatmate’s “God damn opinions on Syria.”
“Beautiful” and “Craigslist”—a most unlikely pairing of words, but one certainly fitting for a particular posting recently shared all over the internet.
Writing in the New York City ‘Missed Connections’ section, one man divulged his love for a fellow passenger on the Manhattan-bound Brooklyn Q train.

Okay, so technically this movie is called True Story, but the synopsis, via Craigslist’s P/T paid gigs pages, reads like it was torn from the Capote non-fiction novel:
SYNOPSIS: STORY OF A JOURNALISTS’ RELATIONSHIP WITH A MOST WANTED MURDERER AND A CASE OF STOLEN IDENTITY.
Short. Brief. Succinct. To the point. And more adjectives! (We wonder if Mr. Franco himself wrote the entry?)
I’m not sure if we have a term in the English language for something like the singularity, except it happens when Craigslist ads for reality shows based on better scripted programs become self-aware, but if we did, the world we lived in would be even sadder. (Presumably because that means this phenomenon happened enough to deserve its own entry in Webster’s.)
So just be glad that the Emmy-Award winning producers behind this new program about Brooklyn/downtown Manhattan hipsters 20-somethings who are trying to figure it all out can only have the one reference like this:
