Cafe Press? Ew. I would recommend Cameesa or even trying it over at Threadless.

Cameesa would be a good bet for a print, though.

I think his "so what," even if I disagree, is that those people are not artists, and thus, their work is not art. Illustrators and illustrations, designers and designs, etc. he would probably concede, but artists and art, probably not.

Well said! But actually, I'm not really sure if the real definition even matters. Adder decides how to define the words and all of us ignorant customers just have to deal with it.

The other thing is that while the height/width are ipod-ish, it's definitely a simplified version to the extent that it could easily be a generic mp3 player.


Sorry for the delay in response...I imagine a generic mp3 player (from my own cheap-o and the people around me have who also have no-name mp3 players) as much smaller than what's pictured... it would be a little bigger than the size of a lighter, with a horizontal screen and a few buttons. These type or these. The smaller size would have also made it a smaller less important part of the design.

Even though it's simplified, the large size of the player, the screen, the white wire, the click wheel... just says ipod first, even with regular headphones. If the whole player was much smaller too, it would have offset the resemblance a little. Anyway...

Vote!

But using gradients to jazz up the comp? Lots of artists do it & get away with it.



But... there is a gradient in the thumbnail...

I completely agree. Why should Woot listen to their customers? I mean that's just stupid, right? And why should the customers even vote for the shirts they prefer? That's just completely selfish and idiotic.

I say we need to get real. Anyone with even half a brain should realize that AdderXYU is the most intelligent being on these forums. Apparently most of the Woot customers don't have that much tissue in their skulls.

AdderXYU knows which shirts are garbage and which ones are good. He should be the one to decide. Woot should rename shirt.woot to adder.woot and hand full control of it over to him.

Then the Great AdderXYU shall sell only those shirts worthy of being sold and all of us morons will be buying the shirts we actually SHOULD be buying.

re: music is life



As what sekiyoku is saying about it not being an Ipod reference- most of the masses here will think Ipod because it looks like one. Wheel, size, screen placement. all of it looks too similar. I dont like Ipods for the sheer fact that a lot of Americans have one and people think Ipods are the only 'good' mp3 player on the market- which is false. A recent Sony Mp3 player is better than an Ipod in terms of portability, sound and design (design is my preference). Overall, I think like this shirt a lot and gave it a vote but wont buy one. This shirt is quite fantabulous.

Sleepingin - Here is a link to an image I found for you. I just googled Van Murals, this was very popular in the 70's early 80's. I guess I know this only because I grew up around cars my whole life.

There aren't the little white play/pause markers on the click wheel, for one. :p Also the screen is already larger than a normal ipod, and it is more boxy (as opposed to curved).



If you put the white play/pause markers it would detract the attention of the shirt.
True that it could be interpreted as a generic mp3 player- Except- what are the generic MP3 players trying to look like? Definitely not my former Apple Zen

Interesting..they have similar names too. And databit admits he is an attention whore as well. Hmm.

purplehazel wrote:Many who don't get it (because they can't read it or haven't really tried) may ask what music it is - at which point the wearer can start singing to them. That seems like a better payoff than with the folk who 'read' it in the first place. Provided, of course, they then recognise that they have been rickrolled.



That's the trouble with rickrolling: it's generally only funny to people who know about it. Otherwise it's just a fairly nondescript '80s pop song; and your victim will just scratch their head at you. Too many rickrollers don't realise that it's a borderline inside joke.

It's also pretty droll in its classic implementation of simply playing the song. (Though embedding it in the help of a beta of a certain Twitter client was a good unexpected variation.)

The rule of thumb is that if the way that you mean to do it has already been done, don't bother; it isn't funny. It's an eyeroll.

But things like this offer a creative twist that makes it actually amusing. I'd actually be tempted to buy this! :D

Maybe because some guys are secure enough in their masculinity that they don't have to wear shirts that range in color from dark grey to black.

Re: Music Pirate (resub)



even though you go for the cutesy aspect of things, ramy, you really need to work on getting some anatomy lessons for non-humans. animals and apparently skeletons. i don't like a few of your shirts simply because the creature looks odd. the style, fine, but i have had enough of it...concept and colors usually work nicely and i applaud you for them. but i can't buy a pirating skeleton if their skull makes them look like a bucktoothed child. and if his teeth were longer, he'd look like whats-his-face from the last Pirates of the Caribbean.
