Good luck to you as well.

I don't know that you'd need to explain it to people, though... if they're Pink Floyd fans they know the prism idea and they know that the last song on the album is "Eclipse." You can add the information that there was an unusually long solar eclipse in the year Dark Side of the Moon was released, but that's not needed to "get" the shirt.

If they're not Pink Floyd fans, it's a nicely designed graphic element with no meaning whatsoever. :-)



I would think that being a Pink Floyd fan, one would wonder why its not a prism...I know I was a little confused until I read your description. In any case, its a nice shirt =]

Re: 1979 - First Publication of the Neverending story



I haven't read/watched the Neverending story, but this design is very ouroboros-like. It's cool, but I remember there was another shirt that was similar, though only because it was ouroboros-like as well, with the snake twisted into an infinity sign. I don't know if that would be a problem...

Meh. Good luck!

I just submitted 1984: Big Brother is Watching. You should vote for it for the sole reason that I created it using MS Paint! :-)

Does anybody know if woot changes the placement or size of the images? I don't really like it smack dab in the middle the way I originally submitted it, but I don't really want to resubmit it in a different place since it'd be the same design.

If the artist made the shirt with a good-faith explanation as to why they thought the year was what it was, and shows evidence supporting that theory, we should accept it as such. As long as it's in the general ballpark. If it's way off and obvious, yeah reject (like saying the Godfather was released in 1956 or something like that).

When it's something like the human genome project, which took a long time for people to get their ducks in a row (so to speak) across many countries and institutions, hammering a specific date/year may be difficult. Just my $0.02 though... I think the shirt looks great.

Woot generally does not change placement or size, though they will tweak a little. If you'd like the image in a different place you can remove your original entry (click the red "X") and post a new one with a different location.

I created this shirt in MS Paint - a terribly time-consuming task. I have much more useful programs at home, but since I created this at work, MS Paint was the only thing available. (Sorry boss! I'll get payroll done tomorrow...)

Oh James....should I admit that I had a huge crush on Ponch? You guys already know that I was born in 1969, so while in school we had to write to a person or business and request something from them. I was one of the few students that got a response to their letter. He (well, his publicity folks) sent a couple of head shots to me. This wasn't one of the pictures, but it brought back memories from that whole CHIPS era.

[I love the concept, since I thought of a similar design, but lack the artistic prowess to put in a submission. You might want to clarify the reference to 1956. Was this the year network programming was available in color? My "Century in Review" book shows the first commercially available color sets were sold in 1954 by Westinghouse, for more than $1200 (enough to buy a new car at the time) although they were dropping the price to $1000 after selling only 30 in two months.
I wonder if the graphic isn't a tad large, considering the itty bitty screens available in the 50's

"...first he's gonna sh*t! And then he's gonna kill us!"

LOL...I love that movie. If not just for that reason, this shirt gets my vote.



Like that movie, too. The car they crashed was a Z28. As a 1979 T.A. owner, I cringe when someone mixes them up. This shirt reminds me of "Smokey and the Bandit" since it's a 1977 or 1978.

i shant give a damn when it was actually founded, organized, thought about, conceived or whatever. You cant really place a date on something of that magnitude.
At any rate: This is a phenominal design and therefor deserves the first prize.
so there.
I give it three thumbs up.
keep up the good work.

Mocking.... we did land on the moon obviously (hundreds of pounds of rocks don't lie). But I thought, yes, I could do a moon landing shirt (I did). But it would be a BETTER idea to design something around the hoax theory... and there it is.

QFLies. The whole concept of this derby is based on the years. It'd be like entering soda or soup in the water derby, rationalizing that it is made with water. An entry using the wrong year is completely off topic, as per the theme itself. If you can't hammer down a year, you shouldn't make the shirt. It'd be like making a Reagan shirt for 86, because hey, he was still the president then. And if you got the year wrong (again, thriller the video, which is the reference in said design, came out in late 83, nearly 84) then it's doubly off topic, because you've either made a design that's not from the right year if you're 82, or you've made a design not from your birth year if you then title it 83. I know woot can't really police our ages, but they sure can police the years. It's an idiotic theme, to be sure, but if they're going to base a theme off this, they should be able to base their rejections around year accuracy. If not, they should have rethought the theme. which is probably true anyway
