You Can Buy Kurt Cobain's Skis and Swatch Phone on Craigslist Now [UPDATE]

Illustration for article titled You Can Buy Kurt Cobains Skis and Swatch Phone on Craigslist Now [UPDATE]

These skis once supposedly belonged to the late Kurt Cobain, and thanks to Craigslist they can be yours, along with some other crap the rock star once owned.

According to a Craigslist posting, a former roommate of Cobain's is selling the items:

Hey Seattle what's up, I used to live with Kurt Cobain back in the 90s and I have been holding on to a bunch of his stuff that he left in a box when he moved out. He owed us rent and said he would get the box when he came back and gave us money but he never came back, then when he was famous he never really talked to any of us again because courtney never liked us but she's a dick so no hard felings.

i am sure it would be easy for you to think that this stuff is fake, but i have pictures of kurt with some of it and i have som friends that will talk to you that will say that this is kurts stuff. we lived together in capitol hill and for a short time in olympia, i was in some very popular bands back then but now i am not playing any music anymore, but if anybody reading this wants to jam, let me know heh heh.

some of this stuff is pretty historical as he was using it whem he was signing his first record contracts, like the phone i know i think he used to talk on the phone to people in LA. that is why it is expensive.

the Swatch phone is a twin phone which means that two people can talk on it at the same time, i remember in the commercials that two people would talk on it at the same time, like a girl would listen in while the other girl was talking, it is in really good condition and is $55.

Kurt was learning to skii when i met him, we went to mount baker a few times to hit the slopes, these are his skiis but i do not have the poles or anything. the bindings are pretty loose but they are good skiis, but of course they are a lot cooler because they are kurts. They are $80

This TOMY game is called "kingman" and is kindof like donkey kong. kurt liked to play this game a lot, it is in good condition but there is some corossion near the battery part. it is still cool tho, and you can have it for $25.


I don't have much to say about this, except that every time I see things like this they always remind me of an episode of VH1's short lived Rotten TV, where host John Lydon, aka Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols, blew up a bunch of "valuable" rock star memorabilia that was reportedly worth "thousands" of dollars, including a letter his former bandmate Sid Vicious wrote to Nancy Spungen.

Enjoy the video before you head off to Craigslist to make an offer on an icon's Swatch phone.

UPDATE: Awww, damn!!! It's a hoax. And a fantastic, hilarious one. Read it and enjoy anyway. Bravo, dude.

No. 25 year old skis are not good skis, guy. Can you even buy boots to fit those bindings anymore?
