Agreed on the pun... but have you ever been to an amusement park where they have an airbrush 'artist' there... that 'stippling' reminds me of pieces done with an unclean airbrush nozzle.

given that i'm moving to california, I'm soooo tempted. But I can't buy any more shirts until i have a new address, and I still dont have a new home yet.

AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH........ whatever.

I meant the blue stippling on the neck. Seems pretty smooth there.

interesting design, but I think the fact that you can only see 3 fingers makes it look kind of awkward.

The original Terminator doesn't like cell phones. They give him RF interference.

Fair enough. Maybe I'm just dazzled because that's a really nice blue combination.



The state of California decided to put on a play featuring governers as famous composers.

Said Pete Wilson, "I'll play Beethoven."

Said Gray Davis, "Mozart for me!"

Said the Governator, "I'll be Bach".

Wow, first time to post on a shirt and it's because I really thought this was possibly the worst shirt ever. It's like my something some old guy might think kids would find "cool". Ouch.

This shirt is not well drawn, causing it to succeed based on it's unfunny pun and pop culture reference that is only funny to tweens.

I was in for one yesterday, but this one isn't very funny, or clever. I believe I will pass.

Ha, I was just talking to someone today how I read an article about the different kind of annoying texters...

Let me find it.. ah yes, here is one of the points:
10. The Needs-to-Grow-Up Texter
Guys should never, ever get comfortable with using text slang and abbreviations. Whether he's a friend, date, or boyfriend, no girl wants to associate the men in their lives with tween-speak.

pun
–noun
1. the humorous use of a word or phrase so as to emphasize or suggest its different meanings or applications, or the use of words that are alike or nearly alike in sound but different in meaning

Stop calling it a pun!

woot changed my signature...apparently linking my old blog was "advertising"...never thought I'd see anyone give Obama a run for his money on being the nanny state...

Technically it would be "I'll BB," but that would look stupid, wouldn't it?

I dunno, the original Terminator is more of a 30-something reference and pretty much everyone I know (including my mom) uses BRB. I think the art has a cool style to it too. I guess I'm in the minority on this one.

Maybe.. you never know.

I think it has something to do with watching the terminator movies with him so much. I do the same thing with Harrison Ford. I have watched to original Indies countless times.

Huh, there's a Wikipedia page for the catchphrase. And apparently he actually says "I'll be right back" in Raw Deal.

I use to have a Terminator action figure/doll whose face would "melt away" under warm water to reveal his metal epidermis. This shirt brings back fond memories of childhood... but I still can't buy it.

The "wear this shirt" and "don't wear this shirt" cancel each other out. One of those paradoxes of time travel.

And you're saying this, as is, qualifies as a purchase? I mean, the word play is horribly bad, and I've already commented on my opinion as to the shading/stippling. Is the text really saving the design, from your perspective?
