Kurt Cobain’s Old Roommate Selling Stuff Kurt Left Behind [UPDATE!}

This isn’t the kind of thing you see on Craigslist ever day:

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.

Among the items for sale are set of skiis.  Kurt Cobain wanted to learn how to ski?  Who knew?

UPDATE:  It’s a hoax.  And it was perpetrated by Sub Pop. Nice one.
