Re: Grace



Wow, I don't know how I missed this one before. I guess I didn't pay all that much attention to the pointillism derby :/

Very cool.

I agree. Up and to the left or right would be a better placement.

This is an awsome shirt. I would totally buy it and wear it. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like I will get the chance...

And why would they be playing marbles with our planets? The whole thing makes no sense, in fact I think it's kind of pointless given that there's no connection holding any of it together. I prefer the one in this derby with our sun playing marbles with the planets, at least those things are related somehow. This is a highly overrated shirt in my opinion, unless I'm just missing the connection.



The theme of the derby was "Outer Space" first of all; it wasn't just limited to our solar system. I understand your concerns, but seriously the shirt wasn't meant to be spot on scientific. It was just a play on words, and had I put any other planets besides easily recognizable ones, people would've surely said "What's going on here...are those planets or marbles?" rather than "Oh hey those are our planets and I get the joke a little better now". If it bothers you too much that the sun is not present, perhaps I'll just tell you that he is off getting ice cream somewhere and decided to let his friends play with his marbles (i.e. our planets).

Besides, a lot of people that stopped by my shirt's page for the Space derby had no idea what White Dwarves and Red Giants were in regards to space-related things anyways, so...had it been truly accurate regarding the science behind it, it would've no doubt just gone wayyyyy over a lot of people's heads. Plus, with joke shirts, sometimes it's just best to keep it simple, rather than completely accurate at times.

My general feeling of it was that ultimately the universe is a big web of gravity. Everything is going to be pulling everything else in different directions. If you want to take the Red Giant and White Dwarf thing in to a scene to account for why our sun is not there, then how about our sun? Well it is much smaller than a red giant and much cooler than a white dwarf. Maybe they are bullies and ran him off?

Hah! :p During the derby I submitted this shirt, someone actually linked yours. I haven't been here long so I hadn't ever seen it before, and I'm surprised to see we're both now in a derby together, because I had no idea how long it had been since your shirt was in a derby!

Re: Some BBQ



Yay, it's back in the fog again! Stay there, please, and print. There are actually 6 shirts I must have, so I know I am going to be disappointed regardless. There are probably another 6 on my "maybe" list...I'm hoping to not end this week with nothing I want to purchase like the past 3 weeks or so.

Are you kidding? This is one of the sexiest looking shirt options I've ever seen on Woot. Sure, it isn't about space and there aren't any bunnies, but it'll do.

I guess my problem boils down to this is two different good concepts merged into one that doesn't make much sense and requires a lot of explanation and storytelling (i.e. the sun went for ice cream). I think a shirt with just literal translations of space objects would be awesome. A shirt with the sun playing marbles with the planets is fine. Merging the two together is just random. It's like having a joke about black holes on the same shirt with a joke about how the moon is made of cheese. I just don't see the connection. Personally I would prefer to see the marbles left off and just add more funny literal translations of space objects.

I am going to go ahead and bring up the argument that every space-related show brings forth then, explosions in space. Like...I watch Star Trek, and quite often there is one thing or another that blows up in the middle of space, but of course in real life that wouldn't happen, as space lacks surrounding oxygen to fuel the fires and the explosion. Here you have the classic argument of what works in reality versus what looks cooler. Regarding my shirt, I had to make a decision on what would make a better, simpler joke and could include more characters to make it visually interesting, versus what is scientifically correct.

So...just because I know explosions in space look and sound nothing like on television shows, that doesn't mean that I can't appreciate it's visual appeal or the fact that without the sounds it'd be a rather uneventful scene. I'm not going to boycott the space shows because of their scientific inaccuracies, so I would hope that you wouldn't hate my shirt because it doesn't completely adhere to scientific properties.

I'd love this if it were just the wizard image, without the text. I know it's the joke you're telling, but the watching the films factor, for me, is better.

Also, the joke's kind of built in visually anyway -- he's playing a BC Rich Warlock...

You even like to whine like a baby even when I said I really like the design? lol A GREAT design does not always mean it will be a great shirt. Something your thick little head can't seem to grasp.

I think the design is very cool, just not something for a t-shirt. If you take that as in insult then that's your problem and idiocy.

This is the single greatest shirt I've ever seen on Woot, and quite possibly the greatest I've ever seen anywhere else. God I hope I get a chance to buy this.
