Swap-O-Matic (My Newest Swap Related Crush)


When I read about this vending machine, I have to admit, I teared up a little (with excitement). The basic idea: You put something in the vending machine and in exchange - you get to take something out. What? What? It's called Swap-o-Matic and I think I'm in love.

Yep. You give something to get something.

Delicious: Biscuit Bitch

Kim Allen, the Biscuit Bitch, was kind enough to answer my fundraising call by purchasing a year-long ad on the bARTer Sauce website. I was (and still am) trying to raise $100 so that a student can mail me a large painting of an erect penis. So far we have raised $40. If you would like to help the cause, email me at

Now, let's learn a little more about Kim, the Biscuit Bitch:

bARTer Sauce Travels to Sacramento, CA

Some of you probably already know about bARTer Sauce. It's my experiment in trading for art and odd objects. Whatever I get -- I trade for something else -- and everyone I trade with has to tell me a story.
The project was supposed to last for one year, but it's been over four years at this point and it is still going strong. I have made hundreds of trades with people all over the US, Canada, Mexico and the UK. I've met some crazies and some people who have become friends for life.

How Many Unicorn Posters Have YOU Stolen?

None? That's what I figured. Well, Nik is different. A little bit. Not in a Canadian way -- but still different.

Plus, although I've never met him, I do imagine that he smells of almonds. Again, not in a Canadian way -- in a good, almond-ey way.

What am I talking about? I have no idea.

bARTer Sauce: Nik Trades me Mosaic Clown Painting and Lost Cock

Nik trades with bARTer Sauce a lot. A LOT. All the time. He trades with me so much that I am really far behind in updating the website with all his trade offers. He trades with me so much that I have officially BANNED him from the site until September 1, 2009. He is not allowed to make any trade offers, no matter what kind of awesome stuff I get between now and then.

bARTer Sauce just traded for a Blueray Gun. It's ceramic. And blue. And super awesome.


For some reason there has been a renewed interest in bARTer Sauce, my experiment in trading for art and odd objects. The idea is that whatever I get, I trade for something else. And everyone I trade with has to tell me a story. This past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind of trades and trade offers. Ba-zang!
