Immortalize kitty

Posted by on Fri, Dec 11, 2009 at 4:48 PM

Cartoonist Roberta Gregory (the creator of awesome Fantagraphics comic Bitchy Bitch) is working on a website and book of true-life cat stories, and she'll immortalize your cat story in a one-page comic! Gregory will draw your cat story (100 words or less) and give you the finished page of suitable-for-framing artwork, when it's all done, to boot! Because we're feeling generous, we'll toss in $95 to spend on a photo shoot at Raindog pet photography!

There isn't a better gift to get your kitty! You only have 10 minutes left to bid—bid now! NOW!

Imagine this: You're at a bar and you see a cutie across the room, so you chat him/her up a little and eventually exchange numbers. After a couple days, this sex god or goddess decides to give you a call and—what's this?—is that Sub Pop's comedy superstar Eugene Mirman as your hilarious and personalized outgoing voice-mail message? Yes it is! Impressive! It will absolutely score you a date. Probably even get you laid! (Not a promise.)

Bidding on this item ends at 5 pm today! Bid now!

buy the stranger

Posted by on Thu, Dec 10, 2009 at 2:30 PM

The Stranger is for sale!

Just about every section of the paper is up for grabs in Strangercrombie—if you're the highest bidder come 5 pm tomorrow, you get to tell us what to write about! And as of right now, some of it is going for insultingly low prices:

• Pick a week's worth of Stranger Suggests! ($52)
• Buy a positive chow review for whatever restaurant or chef you want! ($132)
• Put whatever you want on the cover! Use it to promote your company, embarrass your little brother, whatever! ($609)
• Buy a positive music profile on whatever band or musician you choose! ($123)
Tell Party Crasher what party to go to! And they'll write about it and make it sound epic! ($43)
• Be Drunk of the Week! ($103)

And there's plenty more where that came from. And even though you'll no doubt use your prize for selfish reasons (fame! glory! hooray!), all the money raised will be donated to three great charities. So it evens out.
