More Text added... I have other ideas, but I really wanted this back up... just for Text Sake!

Added the hidden numerical value of Pi, the title of the band and the subtext!

Enjoy Wooters...

Peace!

Thank you, so am I...

Question- Does Adder run this site or what? -

Last Derby he made a mention about this Friday's Derby.. not saying the theme but basically implying that this design may apply... at any rate he was right... I would love to see that happen... I hope to finally buy a shirt soon... maybe even mine... maybe someone else's... although nothing really has caught my attention since joining to warrant a purchase quite yet... Not that the work isn't great, I'm kinda a minimalist in that way... lot of blank t-shirts with paint stains and what not! But, once I do, I look forward to voting like you all are doing... Good luck everyone...

Clever slogan and nice design.

In the song 'Science Genius Girl' by Freezepop they start reciting pi during the bridge... I find it hilarious. It's not a punk song though, it's synthpop: )

Vote!

This is definitely on my "buy right away" list. I've been a Pi fan for as long as I've known it existed... and am on board with 4Rovel67 for counting Pi as my lucky number. And although I only know a few dozen of its digits, I still love it all. (Okay... yes, I know I'm a geek.)

I don't recognize the song that bobichka linked to... but look up "Pi" by the group Hard 'n' Phirm. It's a song about pi with a video wrapped in the trappings of a 1970's kids' educational TV program... but with better music. There are wizards and death rays and a robot that quotes a hundred or two digits of pi.

Agreed. If I wore this shirt, I'd have to punch myself repeatedly in the face every time I looked in a mirror.

ensmind, you clearly have some level of talent, and I appreciate that, but this just isn't something I could ever wear. Maybe it'd work well as a poster in a science classroom or something. I see and understand the humor, I just don't find it worthwhile as a t-shirt.

Re: Infinite Pi


Wow, I can't believe how quickly this shot up!

My Bachelor's is in Computer Science, so I'm a sucker for a good math joke, but the compositional qualities of this design don't sit as well with me as I'd like (I'm not sure if the background fireball/flame thing is composed of halftones or just sort of a series of specks strung together, but it doesn't look quite right to me).

Re: Infinite Pi


I appreciate the joke and think the design is ok, but I'm not sure the design will work on a t-shirt, and it isn't instantly recognizable as a "band T-shirt". It could just as easily be a math club softball t-shirt.

Honestly, I think it would look better without the "band name" and jokey motto.

Not to sound too harsh, but I hope the pb&j or robot shirt catches up to this one.

I would say the critique discredits the popular vote, if none of the popular voters can give a lucid and intelligent reasoning as to why this is any good.

Did you miss the part where I said, "I'm honestly asking..." I didn't critique the shirt at all. And your only response is an ad hominem argument that does nothing at all to answer my original question, lessening my non-existent belief this shirt deserves to be fogged. I didn't attack the shirt or saying anything pejorative about it. I merely asked a simple question, so perhaps you can answer it this time instead of responding with some jejune and asinine attempt at an insult. And if you do respond, can you attempt to write cohesively. I have a hard time understanding your broken syntax.

Why is this shirt good? Artistic? Worth printing? Etc.

Why are any of them so clever as to be "worthy", at least in your mind? Seriously, I came across your remarks as I did others and I find you all to be hard-up for controversy, that's all... Just dishing it back... but to answer you if you're serious... The design was yes, used last week along with 5 or 6 others... this refers to other siding commentators such as you... I was just having fun designing what comes to mind and putting a bunch up... Seeing what is liked, seeing the so called woot market. Pi last week was going well until it got rejected for being text related... I felt this design was worthy this time around because text was allowed... however, learning that I needed to alter some parts, I did so not to be rejected... tweaked it here and there.

Okay... so math in general is music and music is math... the explosion or as some have suggested a "fireball" is kinda like a digital matrix, I added the original text of the actual Pi numbers in there to relate to the design in that effect. The fireball looks even but is uneven because nothing is balanced in life, music, nature what have you... The term Infinite Pi is just that... Pi keeps going and going... The pun with it is... Music genres such as Drum & Base, Trance, Electronica etc, all use digital programmed sound effects and software... in fact almost every band does... NIN for example, Chemical Brothers, Crystal Method, Prodigy, Sublime... Ever go to a show and just listen to one of these bands go off for 2 - 3 hours non stop? Same thing with the tag line... The numbers don't run out abnd they don't stop playing...

I like the simplicity and choas it evokes... It's on a nice blue T and the colors relate...

and Dude, I'm so sorry you don't like the shirt or that you appear to not like it... but frankly I give a S%&t or your attempt to be this English literary genius asking for my help or anyone else's in something you are in so control of yourself... To me you're the condescending ahole so please... next time don't type just get over yourself!

And besides... there's still room for you upstairs when it's your time!

And to the lady above this commentary... You Rock My World! Don't worry baby... he's a bad man, very bad... we can spank him later! Adder can watch! Infinitely! Lol!

The designers with the worst reputations are the ones that make the most bank in the derbies. Think about it and tell me that "reputation" means ANYTHING. The only people who are effected are the ones who dare question what rises to the top. If you're in the right with the drones, you could eat babies on video and they'd defend you.

Seriously, though, the meteoric rise of this tee makes me pretty repulsed and totally baffled. I cannot honestly justify how this could do that legitimately, and it makes me wish woot had the sense of honor to investigate.

Yeah, woot . . . woot doesn't really investigate anything. If they didn't look into a pair of designers winning (at least one of them) practically every week they're not going to look into a single, improbable rise (note I said improbable, not impossible, so cool your jets, ensmind--I'm not accusing you of anything).

It's just kind of a shame. If woot never audits their voting system, the end results can never really be fully trusted, whether or not suspicious activity pops up. They could easily solve this, of course, by ending the practice of votes being the sole determinant for print-worthiness in the derbies, but I'm not holding my breath

I seriously don't see the appeal with this one. It's even mind boggling to see this in the fog. Even that "Pander Bears" is close to the fog when it's clearly a joke entry, and yet people still vote for it. And of course Ramy's design is somehow close to striking distance. I won't mind PB&J and the Crab be up here, and also Botanical Beard. But this!? Bleh!

so, mothers have accounts on here? that changes everything! i should completely rethink my position on this "design", the "designer" and their alleged mum. i don't want to offend anyone that has gone through child birth... i suppose to be fair i should have originally written, "I aate you and I aate yo mum!" if you get it, you get it.

also, i dont think "cool" could factor in to any post about a pi shirt.

When I first saw this shirt, I thought it was a clever little pun and considered if I might buy it if it printed.

After reading the "artist's" and his "girlfriend's" comments, I've decided I really want no part of this.

Congrats on the fogging, ensmind, but I'll pass. As a general rule, I don't buy from people who are rude to long-time members and artists.

Agreed. At first I was glad for your design doing well since it was rejected last week as a text violation. I don't think it's very aesthetically pleasing at all, aside from the colors (but it's hard to go wrong with shades of blue and white, amirite?) I've refrained up until now from commenting because I'm sure you will just say it's because I have an entry based on pi also. However, as AliCat said, I can't vote for someone who can't take comments from the fan base and fellow designers without becoming defensive, and not just defensive, but offensive. The last straw was when you attacked Adder by implying he is acting like a woman. And then a few post from there you had the nerve to tsk tsk at someone making a somewhat generic and more than likely sarcastic "your mom" comment.

If this is "just a t-shirt design contest" then why are you reacting so venomously instead of laughing and shrugging it off and telling YOURSELF that it's just a dumb contest and why should you care so much?

why wouldn't he stand up for himself? yeah, sure he may have gone a little low on some of those blows but its not changing the fact that im buying this shirt as soon as it prints. i like it, cool shirt(love it even more after his explanation of some the artistry), I'l wear it. i try not to let peoples comments effect if im going to buy the shirt. i try to only go on my own opinion when i first see the shirt. humans are easily swayed by other's opinions.

On a side note: Its weird how when i do actually read comments (which is only on the shirts im thinking of buying) its always the most drama filled flow of comments. happens every time...

Congrats on the fogging, ensmind, but I'll pass. As a general rule, I don't buy from people who are rude to long-time members and artists.


Seriously.

He's already fogged and will probably print. There's no need to be rude and mean about it. The posts critiquing his design are obviously not losing him votes. You can either ignore those comments or gracefully accept them ("Thanks for your suggestion/comment/critique, I'll keep that in mind for next time").

That was particularly rude, insulting and disgusting. I've seen artists defend their work and that's fine and dandy, even commendable at times. But the way they've been reacting is gross and even embarrassing to themselves.

Agreed. 100%.

I was all set to buy one of these for my math nerd husband until I read all this. Even though it will probably print anyway, I'm removing my vote and will not be buying from this artist in the future.

I guess you guys win... I made an account to vote for people's shirts I like and then got sucked in... no more comments for me just voting. You guys are pretty rude and downright mean. Say whatever there will be no more responses from me and I hope you guys had fun being school yard bullies.

Re: Infinite Pi


Alright, I have to say this before voting closes. I've been thinking it all week, and even though all my friends disagree with me, I just have to get it out.

I really don't like this design. I mean, the concept is....alright and all. I just.....I think it's kind of pixelated looking, but it doesn't necessarily look intentional. The type just looks stamped in the center because that's the first place anyone thinks to put type, not because it's serving a higher purpose for the aesthetic or concept of the design.

I just think most of this shirt design looks rushed, and it would serve it well to.....clean it up some. But, that's just my opinion, and it looks like there are more than enough people who are totally happy with it, so congratulations anyway.

re: infinite pi


WOW. I am really offended by this entire thread and everything that the artist and his girlfriend said. And I only got to read the edited by Woot version. I have yet to see an artist act as childish as you because a couple people said they did not like your shirt. You probably lost more votes with those comments than people who commented that they didn't like it.

I agree with all of the people who don't like the shirt. It looks rushed and sloppily put together and weirdly pixelated. Therefore, I am not going to vote for it. All the hateful comments that you made with your girlfriend just put the icing on the cake for me.

Good luck with the derby because according to Shirt Derby Stats you are going to print. But for future derbies, you really need to learn how to take criticism better.

As I said earlier I got caught up in some mean critisisms. Apologies are in order from me and I do apologize. I'll stick to the nursing things and leave the critiquing to the artists. Sorry wooters I stooped to another level obviously

I definitely have to agree. I mean, I hate the shirt as is because it's off-theme (looks like a math club shirt) and the artist is a prick... but even if that wasn't the case, the design is just weak. The sad thing is, it's going to print over some incredible designs (Sex Drugs, Space Crabs, Eucalytpus Melancholy), and I doubt it'll actually even sell well. Very disappointing.

Re: Infinite Pi


This REALLY didn't have enough put into it to make it look even halfway like a music or band related shirt.

And no, saying there's math in music doesn't count.

Re: Infinite Pi


Full disclosure: due to the blue I didn't vote for this and have no desire to buy it.

But in defense of this design, it's original, it's based on a solid concept, and it's clever (use of circles, infinitely repeating numbers, etc). I may not like the artist personally but who cares. I'd rather see some original and diverse designs then see another derby full of anthropomorphic off-topic kawaii done by a group of Pollyannas.

Re: Infinite Pi


I'm still not even sure how it wasn't disqualified for having nothing really to do with music. It has nothing to do with music at all. "We don't stop playing until the numbers run out"...? You could be talking about -- pun time -- an infinite number of things. I would never associate this with music, and neither would anyone else if asked out of the blue what the shirt was about.

It's by far one of the worst shirts I've seen in the fog, in terms of aesthetics and graphics. I agree with previous posters that it looks overly pixelated and the gradients are just bad. And I've identified exactly what it looks like -- it looks like you took a shirt design and dropped it to 4-bit color. Load up any of the other shirts from this derby into Paint and save them as a 16-color bitmap, and you'll have essentially what this shirt looks like.

I find every remark made my the designer incredibly obnoxious, and I'm glad it didn't get my vote. I'm sure it'll end up printed just because most people don't read these forums, but I know I'll be surprised if it sells out.

Re: Infinite Pi


Even though I think this shirt is a total piece of junk and the artist acted like a huge jerkface, I almost hope it prints so we can watch the hate pile on in the daily discussion thread. Of course, since it is a holiday weekend, the hate might be minimal as everbody will be too busy drinking and blowing their fingers off, in which case it's just going to be a supersucky print.

Woot deleted all kinds of posts. Guess they don't want everyone to know what a jerk the artist is. Supersucky print it is! Pretty boring reading the thread now that they took all the meat out of it.

Yeah, they deleted two of mine. In one of them, all I really did was call the guy a jerkface. I guess they can say it but I can't.
