Re: Inspired by Savage Garden - Crash and Burn



This is inspired by the chorus of Crash and Burn by Savage Garden.

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone


He's wooden because honestly how sincere are all these songs? There are thousands of them...

Re: Inspired by January 1979





January, 1979.
Saw a terrible crash and i couldn’t help but laugh,
As my ear pressed against the past like a glass
on a wall of a house in a photograph.
My forehead no longer sweet with holy kisses worthy of your fiery lips.
I was floating in a peaceful sea 'rescued' by a sinking ship.

If I could become the servant of all, no lower place to fall.
If I could become the servant of all, no lower place to fall.
If I could become the servant of all, no lower place to fall.
If I could become the servant of all, no lower place to fall.

You watch me like a ten car highway wreck with detached, vulgar curiosity.
This looking down at the tops of the hats
of us passers-by from your 7th floor balcony.
From such a height you missed creatures too small for sight
carry on covert conversations.
And the misguided insects crown me their grasshopper king
with a dance of celebration.

After years with a crown on my head, I've grown overfed,
unconcerned and comfortably numb.
Kept busy indulging in the pleasures of the wealthy.
(Someone make me afraid of what I’ve become!)
At the first sign of possible sorrow, I turned my heels and ran.
(Oh, I’ll never learn.)
My life is a cup of sugar I’ve borrowed before time begain and forgot to return.

It was a matter of time--I always said I could see so now I’m going blind.
It was a matter of time--I always said I could see so now I’m going blind.
It was a matter of time--I always said I could see so now I’m going blind.
It was a matter of miserable time-- but I heard somewhere there was a cure for useless eyes?

Re: Inspired by Nina Simone's Feeling Good



Inspired by the following lyrics:

Birds flying high you know how I feel
Sun in the sky you know how I feel
Reeds driftin on by you know how I feel

...

Fish in the sea you know how I feel
River running free you know how I feel
Blossom in the tree you know how I feel

...

Dragonfly out in the sun you know what I mean, dont you know
Butterflies all havin fun you know what I mean
Sleep in peace when day is done
....
Stars when you shine you know how I feel

Re: Inspired by 99 Red Balloons



A shirt inspired by 99 red ballons, particularly this portion:

~~~
99 red balloons
Floating in the summer sky
Panic bells it's red alert
There's something here from somewhere else
The war machine springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
Focusing it on the sky as 99 red balloons go by
~~~

I hope you like it! Thanks for looking.

My wife teaches music to children which I think was the inspiration for this shirt... She is the one who actually sketched it, I just scanned it, cleaned it up for her, and put it in the illustrator template... So full credit for this design goes to my lovely wife Liz... Great job hon...

SAFETY DANCE!
We can dance if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
'Cause your friends don't dance and if they don't dance
Well they're no friends of mine
I say, we can go where we want to
A place where they will never find
And we can act like we come from out of this world
Leave the real one far behind
And we can dance

doo doo do dooo do do
(Hopefully the checkmark and X won't count against the "no text" rule)
They are meant as symbols, same as a circle and a line through it (but that didn't look as good)

"All along the watchtower princes kept the view, while all the women came and went, barefoot servants too... Outside in the cold distance a wild cat did growl, two riders were approaching, and the wind began to howl..."



This is a great song with visually rich lyrics by Bob Dylan but it is perhaps more popularly known by the Jimi Hendrix cover version...

Re: Inspired by Banana Pancakes



"Banana Pancakes"

Cant you see that its just raining
Aint no need to go outside...
But Baby, You hardly even notice
When I try to show you this
Song is meant to keep ya
From doing what your supposed to
Like waking up too early
Maybe we can sleep in
Ill make you banana pancakes
Pretend like its the weekend now

And we could pretend it all the time
Cant you see that its just raining
Aint no need to go outside

But just maybe, laka ukulele
Mommy made a baby
Really don't mind the practice
Cause your my little lady
Lady lady love me
Cause I love to lay here lazy
We could close the curtains
Pretend like there's no world outside

And we could pretend it all the time
Cant you see that its just raining
Aint no need to go outside
Aint no need aint no need Mmmm MMmmm
Cant you see cant you see
Rain all day
And I don't mind.

The telephone is singing
Ringing its too early
Don't pick it up
We don't need to we got everything
We need right here
And everything we need is enough
Just so easy
When the whole world fits inside of your arms
Don't really need to pay attention to the alarm
Wake up slow, yeah wake up slow
You hardly even notice
When I try to show you this
Song is meant to keep ya
From doing what your supposed to
Like waking up too early
Maybe we can sleep in
Ill make you banana pancakes
Pretend like its the weekend now

And we could pretend it all the time
Can't you see that it's just raining
Aint no need to go outside
Aint no need, Aint no need
Rain all day and I really really really don't mind
Can't you see cant you see,
You gotta wake up slow

Re: Inspired by Bales of Cocaine



Bales of Cocaine - Reverend Horton Heat

Well I was workin' on my farm, 'bout 1982
Pullin' up some corn, and a little carrot, too
When two low-flyin' airplanes, 'bout a hun'red feet high
Dropped a buncha bales of somethin', some hit me in the eye

So I cut a bale open, and man was I surprised
A buncha large sized baggies, with big, white rocks inside
So I took a little sample, to my crazy brother Joe
Sniffed it up and kicked his heels, said, "Horton, that's some blow!"

(Chorus)
Bales of cocaine, fallin' from low-flyin' planes
I don't know who done dropped 'em
, but I thank 'em just the same
Bales of cocaine, fallin' like the pourin' rain
My life changed completely by those low-flyin' planes

So I loaded up them bales in my pick 'em up truck
Headed west for Dallas, where I might try my luck
I didn't have a notion if I could sell 'em there
Thirty minutes later I was a millionare

(Chorus)

Now I am a rich man, but I'm still a farmer too
But I sold my farm in Texas, bought a farm down in Peru
And when I get so homesick, I think I'm goin' insane
I travel back to Texas in a low-flyin' plane

Re: Inspired by Skinned



Skinned - Blind Melon

I'll make a shoehorn outta your shin
I'll make a lampshade of durable skin
And oh, don't you know that I'm always feelin' able
When I'm sittin' home and I'm carving out your navel
I'm just a sittin' here carving out your navel

When will I realize that this skin I'm in
Hey, it isn't mine
And when will the kill be too much meat for me to hide

Hey, I could really use a couple of hands
To complete one hell of a plant stand

Oh, and don't you know that I'm caught here in the middle
Making rib cages into coffee tables
I'm just makin' em into coffee tables

And when will I realize that this skin I'm in
Hey, it isn't mine
And when will the thrill be too much meat for me to find anymore

Because you know I can't hide
But oh how hard I try
But this is just the shape I'm in, oh yeah
although I know I can't hide
But oh how hard I try
But this is just the shape I'm in
oh yeah, oh yeah

Hahaha! I remember on an olllld reality show, The Mole, (one of my favourites) they tortured people with this song. They slept in a "haunted house" and one person was in a bed with just springs, (no mattress) and had to fall asleep while a bubble maker blew bubbles on them and this song was played over and over again. It was also played backwards, forwards, fast (a la Alvin and the Chipmunks) and slow; they even stopped the song in the middle, only to start it up again. That's what this song reminds me of. ;)

Edit: This is talking about the safety dance shirt.
http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=10949


I know this design is going to be rejected b/c of text, but I like the idea.

I have no artistic ability... but maybe show people dancing unsafely with a big X and then people slow dancing with a check mark or something.

Another option. Show people doing different dance styles (tango, ball room) with a big X over them, then show someone doing the safety dance (not sure what pose you would use for that) with a check mark.

Inspired by the Beatle's "I am the Walrus"

"Sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the van to come.
Corporation tee-shirt, stupid bloody tuesday.
Man, you been a naughty boy, you let your face grow long.
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen.
I am the walrus, goo goo g'joob."

Technical Notes:
The Halftones are done more for the "retro" than the gradient effect. That said, I removed the smallest dots to aid in achieving a quality-print of this shirt.

Kinda my imagining of a Soviet Propaganda shirt.

Oh, show me round your snow peaked
mountain way down south
Take me to you daddy's farm
Let me hear you balalaika's ringing out
Come and keep your comrade warm
I'm back in the USSR
Hey, You don't know how lucky you are, boy
Back in the USSR
Oh, let me tell you honey
