Craig's Other List: Guerrilla Art Project With a Twist

Bizarre notices have been popping up on lampposts around Melbourne. On the surface they seem like legitimate notices you'd see on community noticeboards: items for sale, lost and found, and invitations to join groups with those who have similar interests. But once you start reading them, you realise that something is amiss. The item for sale is the lamppost the note is attached to ("Meet me at midnight. You may need a spade."). The lost item is a sweatband. (Reward for its return? "We could go and see a movie. G or GA only.") The found item is a free newspaper with a half-done crossword ("So you should be able to identify it"). Oh, and they are all signed off by someone named Craig.

"Too bad some guy in australia ripped off the idea"

I don't think it's bad at all - it's a funny idea, and makes people smile... the more cities that benefit, the better.

Here's a link to the originals, made by NYC writer Todd Lamb, they've been posted around New York since last year:

That assumes that "Chris" and "Craig" are not the same person(s). ;-)
I'd love to see the NY ones. And I wonder what the NY project thinks of their work turning up (hacked) in Australia.
