The art teacher side of my brain says yes...

The Pink Floyd side of my brain says YES...

Why is this not already on my body...

If they were angled properly, I would buy this.

I don't know.

Would be better if the colors were at an appropriate angle. Light does not refract on a level plane, which I learned in grade 7.... The original Pink Floyd album cover illustrated this point, is there a reason this shirt doesn't? Besides a lack of a grade school education in addition to a lack of attention to detail?

Also, Merry Christmas shirtwoot!, if you celebrate. If not, save the sentiment for something you do celebrate. Thanks for the company after midnight ; )

You guys are such babies. "Angled properly". It's called "childish side of the moon", emphasis on childish. Also, anyone that knows anything will know exactly what this shirt references, and then you can shoot the gift talking about angling with them rather than here. It's crayola floyd, not pink floyd, so i don't think it needs to be much more authentic than it already is

Done. Thanks Woot! They'll be no sorrow for those comfortably numb for Arnold Layne has set the controls for the heart of the sun.

The angles not being right is a bit annoying, but what I really cannot get past is that they exchanged colored light with colored pigment. They way those mix together is completely different.

This is a nonsensical concept, there's no way for this shirt to exist without conceptually violating physics in some way. Getting upset by something like that is like getting upset that Alice's voice doesn't completely change pitch when she becomes tiny or huge.

And that is exactly why I just ordered two. One for each grandchild. They're not even a year old yet so they'll have to grow in to them, and when pops tells them this was the first cassette tape he ever owned he'll have to explain what a cassette tape is, but it will be a bonding moment.

An opinion should be the result of thought, not a substitute for it.

Love this design...but am I the only one who hates the new tshirt material? Any chance they will go back to American Apparel? The new shirts dont hold form and shape at all.

ShirtWOOT!.... you are making it way too difficult for me to exchange my hard-earned money for your desired goods!! No amount of responsible behavior has limited me to just one grandchild with their two parents! WANTING MORE ...MUST INITIATE CREATIVE CONSUMERISM . . . .

Merry Christmas all!

Crayons don't refract at an angle, but are linearly horizontal in alignment. The shirt creator knew this. It is not a mistake. Wikipedia is your friend.

Y'know, I _thought_ it felt like I was wearing a few of my shirts backwards, the collar just didn't feel quite right. Hadn't realized woot had changed shirts. Wonder if that is the reason.

I am with you on the t-shirt material. Yuck. Ick. Blech. and so forth. Sorry shirtwoot!, but I only buy the ones I've really GOTTA have any more, and fewer of those.

Crayons do not refract, period. Refraction is a property of waves, which is what the crayons are representing on this shirt. Although I am curious about this wikipedia article you refer to. I was actually on there earlier (almost confused refraction and rarefaction), but didn't catch anything talking about crayons. And again, probably wouldn't explain the lack of accuracy to the original album cover.

As a straight, but never narrow, teacher who bought one, would you please write a short paragraph explaining the rationale behind your comment and include at least three reasons why I shouldn't start a thread discussing the inadequacies of your physiology?!?

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

When you click on "I want one," you will be redirected to the sale page. Next to "quantity," you choose the number of shirts you want. After this, your page updates and size choice boxes will show up for each shirt that you are ordering (so, for the daily, it will be 1, 2, or 3). Choose the size you want for each shirt. Once done, click the "buy now" button and complete your transaction.

I'll never understand why an artist, when riffing on a pop-culture reference this well known would go from their faulty memory rather than taking 3 seconds to do a google search and get the image right.

Maybe there is another reference here that I am missing and I just don't get the shirt; if so, I apologize for my ignorance and criticism. On the other hand, if they just couldn't be bothered to reference the original art, this is inexcusably lazy.

Intellectual property, maybe? I certainly wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of the surviving members of Pink Floyd OR HipGnosis.

Refraction and the dispersion of light when passing through a prism is not intellectual property. It's scientific principles and unless either artist above was theorizing a change to this principle, it can't be copyrighted.
