Craig and his wonderful list

craigslist vintage camerasThe good thing about Craigslist: It's a window into our fellow community members' wants, needs and aspirations. The bad thing about Craigslist: It's a window into our fellow community members' wants, needs and aspirations.

Good or bad, we'll let you decide...

"I enjoy having my head scratched in a non-sexual way."

Apparently we've been under-dressing for our trips to big box stores.

The "sketchy dude" at the Walmart in Troy wants someone to put a spell on him.

Maybe she thought you were admiring her ability to dodge the woman who almost face planted on her table.

She used his electricity, drank his beer, and left. The nerve.

He'd like to show the guy from the Iron Gate "what's up."

Yet more, icky, evidence that parents aren't always keeping their eyes on their kids.

The "most beautiful man I have ever seen" flew from Detroit to Albany.

So, what exactly does it mean to "act the part" of arm candy at "a high profile business dinner."

Something you don't see every day: a want add for models, to be paid by the year (that is, the older they are, the more the "photographer" is willing to pay -- you know, for his "private collection").

A piercing deal, for the brave.

That's not a bad deal if some of those cameras are working. I would -- hey what the, digital cameras are vintage now??

Very nice redesigns. I hope that area becomes more of a neighborhood rather than what it currently is - still an expressway that happens to have hotels and apartments along it. I'd love to see wide sidewalks and protected bike lanes from Crossgates all the way to Manning.
