Me:
I have many things.  lets trade

Pain (yeah, that’s his “name”):
WHAT DO YOU HAVE? 

CAN YOU LIST ME YOUR STUFF?

Me: 
Yes.  I have…

  • HDTV
  • bag of animal hair (few different kinds of animals)
  • knife collection
  • Laptop
  • rhino horn (REAL)
  • some small taxidermy animals (moles, mice, squirrels – that type of thing)
  • Ipod video
    some “spices” and “herbs” from far away places

I would like a tattoo that will honor my heritage and the proud traditions of my people.

Pain:
hdtv is cool! what brand and size?

what tattoo are you trying to do?

also the laptop, what kind and specs?

Me:
The hdtv is Mitsuhishi (not mitsubishi)  It is a knock off from Japan but works pretty good most of the time.  It is a 26 inch screen.  I bought it while on a round the world trip of the world.  I have some wonderful pictures I could show you if you want (NOT NAKED)
 
The laptop an acer.  13″. 1.2ghz 256mb ram. has dvd/cd burner but there is an “adult” film stuck in the drive – so you’ll need to be at least 18 to get this from me.  I hope this is not a problem.  It is a good film.
 
I was thinking of something with an indian warrior.  My specific tribal ancestors were very violent.  They often ripped their prisoners hearts out of their chest.  So maybe a warrior splitting open a rib cage and reaching in the chest cavity for the heart.  You seem very skilled so I dont think this would be a problem would it?  Do you think it is too gruesome?
 
Thank you for your quick replies,
Ty

Pain:
ARE YOU TRYING TO DO A BACKPIECE?
SOMETHING WITH THAT MUCH DETAILS WOULD BE MORE APPRECIATING IN A LARGER SCALE
TO SEE MORE DETAILS. AND NO IT ISNT TOO GRUESOME. AND YES I AM WAY OVER 18.
IS THE TV AN LCD FLAT PANEL?
WHEN DO YOU WANT TO GET STARTED? DO YOU HAVE ANY PICS OF YOUR ANCESTORS THAT I
CAN VIVE OFF OF?

Me:
A backpiece sounds like a good idea.  I would like it to be very detailed and I think you can do it very good.
 
 I have spoken to a friend about it and he believes there should also be like two wolves (maybe just one) that belong to the warrior also tearing at the dead prisoner’s body, being loyal to their master. There should also be a squaw (indian woman) in the background who is just barely covering her nipples with either her hair or her hands.  Or do you think her nipples should show? I value your input.
 
 She should also be looking at the warrior with a little bit of lust in her eye.  And I would like her to have braids.  Her breasts should be quite large (not comically large – just full, like when a woman is nursing)  She should not be naked on her lower half though.  Do you think it would look better with the sun in the sky or a full moon?
 
The tv is flat screen but it is very heavy,  And I am glad you are over 18, you will like the movie in the dvd drive very much.
 
I have attached a picture similar to what my ancestors looked like.  Very imposing and majestic dont you think?  Would you like me to find an indian woman too for inspiration?

my people

 

 

 

 

 

Pain: 
so the tv isnt one of those thins tvs you can mount on the wall?

Me: 
No you can.  It is just heavy.  Just need a good mount.

Pain:
COOL! I WILL DRAW IT UP AND TAKE IT FROM THERE.

___________________________________________________________

It’s been three days and “Pain” never got back to me.  On one hand, I am sad that I don’t have a hilariously violent sketch to share with you of an Indian, aided by his trusty wolves,  ripping out the heart from his enemy’s chest cavity while a lustfull squaw looks on.

On the other hand, I’m really grateful that I didn’t have to tell some tattoo artist named “Pain” who had spent hours on back piece sketch why I would no longer be seeking his services.

But hey – if YOU would like to try your hand at sketching this wonderful tattoo, feel free to send me a sketch at tyler.funwithcraigslist@gmail.com.  If you’re not artistically inclined – all the better, it will just be funnier.

If I get a few, I’ll post them on my blog.   Just imagine how famous you could become.

Namaste.

Me: beautiful table still available?

Namaste,

Ty

Bhuvana:

yes i have the corner table please call 626287****

thankyou.

Me: How many sides does it have?  I get confused when trying to count them.

Bhuvana: hi.  its a 6 sides do you like this?

Me: I do like this. 6 sides is very pleasing to me. six is a strong number, symbolizing virtue, honor and masculinity.  has this been owned by any powerful men?

Bhuvana: thankyou so much. i think you are an indian.right.

namasthe .

Me: No, Native American. (unless this is what you meant when you said indian)  I raise eagles for a living.

Me (20 mins later): still there?

Bhuvana was not still there.  Either she feels bad for assuming I was “dot indian” and not “feather indian” or she’s terrified that she’s pissed off some Native American out there who raises eagles and she wants NO part of that.

But props to Bhuvana for being the first craigslister to write “namaste” back

Namaste you all – and may you never know the fury of “thunder talons”

Vintage Shasta Trailer for a Tent trailer – $1 (Fresno, CA)


Reply to: ****
Date: 2009-05-06, 9:33AM PDT

I have a Vintage 14 ‘ – 1964 Shasta Airflyte trailer that I would like to trade for a tent trailer. My family has grown and we need more space. Sleeps 4 in 2 beds, fold out couch and a dinette. It looks like there was a single bunk over the couch at one time but it is not there any more. I have the pink slip in hand and the trailer is registered thru June.

This Shasta model is the last of the “Canned Ham” style trailers. The next year, they squared off the design for a more modern look. It’s in usable condition but needs some work. Completely restored, these babies are worth over $10,000.

___________________________________________________________

And so it begins…

Me: Greetings!
 
I like the style of this trailer.  It is evoking a touching bout of nostalgia in me.  I feel that this great trailer has traveled far and wide across our great land.  Is this true?
 
Namaste,
Ty

Jon:  I don’t know the full history of the trailer but I do know it’s been to Albuquerque, NM and back.  Spent most of it’s life in the Valley I suspect.

Me:   I can read the soul of this trailer and I think it has a proud history – not unlike my own proud native american heritage.  Would this be suitable for painting?  I am imagining a beautiful mural along the side of a proud Arapaho warrior not riding a horse, but instead riding a very large wolf, hunting by moonlight. 

How many people can fit in this comfortably?

Jon:  Hi Ty,  I got a treat for you….click on this link to see what others have done with their vintage trailers. There are a lot of pictures to enjoy.
 http://www.sistersonthefly.com/trailers.php?offset=40&limit=20

This one will sleep 4 as is but if you put back the bunk above the setee, then you can add one more.

what a treat! :-|

Me:  

Wonderful link my friend, would you mind giving me your thoughts on the paint job idea I have included as an attachment.

Is there a full stove in the trailer?  I should very much like to cook whatever game I may catch (salmon, rabbit, beaver, otter, deer) while out in the wilderness.

indiantrailer

-I think I know a soda machine  that would go perfectly with this trailer…

Jon:  Wow, that would be sooo cool!  Nice artwork!  yes there is a 3-burner range and oven in the trailer and also an icebox.  I have never used the stove but they are simple in design and it should work.

Me:  To the best of your knowledge, have any unclean spirits entered this trailer?  That is to say, people with ill intent or shadowy souls. 

I try to surround myself with people and belongings that have the purest energies possible.

Jon:  I don’t have any knowledge of any unclean spirits in the trailer.

Me:  Will you pay for a shaman to bless the trailer?  I know a very good one I could refer to you.

Jon:  No thanks…I’m looking to sell the trailer and really nothing more than that.

Me:  Do you have any teepees?

_________________________________________________________

I guess Jon didn’t have any teepees.  Whatever, he’s a cheapskate anyways – won’t even hire a shaman to cleanse his trailer of evil spirits.

The least he could do is buy a dreamcatcher.

Namaste.

How many cans can it hold?  Can you use beer?  Can you adjust how much it costs for a drink?  Do you think it would look good with a native American warrior airbrushed on the front?
Oh and has anyone famous ever used this???
Thanks – very interested!
Namaste,
Ty
Reply

it can hold over 120 cans it .. as long as the can is a 12oz can then beer or what ever you want will work.no one famous owned it ..it is possible to change out the cost of the can but you have to order the parts for the machine to do it .. if you personalized it . it would be authentic air bushed or what ever you want….

________________________________________________________________

How informative, I suppose it would be  “authentic  air brushed” or whatever I want.  I’m sold!

Awesome, I’d almost actually consider buying this.

strawberry tobacco.. No illegal substance has been used in it. I only used it one just to try it out. BUT.. you can use it for whatever you like. . But it’s pretty clean. It doesn’t even smell or looked used.

Second Email

Do you think I could get someone to paint an Indian (native american) warrior on it?  Is it big enough?

PS – no illegal substances :)

Namaste
Ty

2nd Reply

uuuhhhh… you can do whatever you want to it. It’s 17"… the bowls probably like a 15" diameter..

Third Email

Or do you think a wolf howling at the moon is preferable?  I’m so confused!  But i love the blue color of your hookah.
BTW, what is a hookah for?

Namaste,
Ty

Never heard back from Stephanie :(  Why wont anyone help me decide between an Indian warrior and a howling wolf?  Oh well.

Hi.  What color is your grill?  Is it blue?  If not, do you think you could paint it?  I can pay extra.

It is white and I will not paint it.

toni.

Second Email

Oh okay :)  I guess I could have it painted myself.  I’m really interested in having some Native American art painted on it.  Like maybe a wolf looking at the moon or a warrior on his horse, you know?  My whole house is decorated like that and I’d love a grill to match.

Does it work good?  Do you think a wolf or warrior would look better on it?
 
Namaste,
Ty

Alas, I never heard back from toni :( How will I ever decide between a wolf and a proud native warrior without his valuable input? Or grill a delicious, lean mean burger for that matter!

Namaste.
