Robots do not have rhythm, nor souls. Thus, they feel compelled to beat up anything that does, purely out of jealousy.

OK, I've posted something on-topic about "Do The Robot!", right? So I'm not being a complete jerk here. Perhaps a partial one, but not one who takes the cake. Or the robot, for that matter.

edit: further comment. Funny? I can't imagine anyone seeing it thinking that it is funny unless they'd read the write-up. Sorry, I just don't get the "funny"

Grats to the artist, but perhaps sad to tell the others here, I can't see myself buying this image: I don't hate it, but it doesn't "MOVE" me sufficiently. That and I'm apparently going to be spend DAYS unpacking all of the shirt.woot! t-shirts that I've got (I am being utterly honest and literal here: I am NOT being metaphorical in any wise whatsoever.)

Y'know, it must be kind of like King Midas counting his gold over and over again. Each time I unfold a shirt and put it on a hanger it is usually pretty cool - perhaps like seeing a friend I hadn't seen for some time.

---

In response to EdwardBlake:TigerTigerBurningBright, etc., I have ordered a copy of the Rainbow Zebra and, if it is possible to find the information, I'm eagerly awaiting reading about when that particular design / those shirts are printed.

Confession: I was in Munich with someone in 1994. There were posters everywhere with a black & white image consisting of nothing but zebras, all covering the field continuously - like a jigsaw puzzle, but to make it work, the lines of the zebras alternated black vs. white where they joined edges.

Because she begged (well, basically), I stole one. Of course, stealing an ad off of a wall is small potatoes, but what the heck.

I don't recall what graphics program I was using at the time. It might have even been MacPaint which, although it was extremely simple, still did things quite nicely. On the other hand, I was in a job where I'd switched back to IBM PC's, so I might have been working there.

I "electronically enlarged" the living daylights out of the 8x10 scan that I made. Thinking back, that points more strongly to MacPaint because the only scanner I had was connected to a Mac.

Spent FAR too much of my employer's money cleaning up the edges until they were nigh-on perfect, making sure that all of the white was white and all of the black was solid black. On the other hand, I got awfully good at doing graphics of this sort and that helped with the web sites I started developing for this place about that time. Hey, I'll grab onto any rationalization I can!

Since we had a rather large-scale printer-plotter, I made about 3x4 foot copy of it (the original aspect ratio may or may not have been 1.25 and the aspect ratio of the result may or may not have been 1.333(etc) but I did make the scaling locked in any case.) I found some kind of plastic framing edges and clear cover - perhaps at a Hobby Lobby or some such store. Not anything sophisticated like a proper framing job, but not bad.

So, I guess I did this about 13..15 years ago (the actual work). Even though she threw a book at my crotch about a week ago (with INCREDIBLE accuracy) and shouted that she hated me and never wanted to see me again, the print is still in excellent condition and on one of the walls of her house.

In any case, I'm really excited about getting my Rainbow Zebra.

I like this, but am really annoyed that every shirt seems to be this color. Otherwise, awesome design.

Sweet! Thanks to all that voted, and thanks to MJ and the folks in the derby forum who helped me refine the design before I posted it.

On a somewhat related note, the wife and I just got back from the local arthouse theatre where they screened an original print of Robocop... and it was great! I was prepared for it to be awful, but that movie really holds up. (Plus it was a great way to kill time while I waited for midnight to roll around!)

What a night!

Nahh. Not profound. I'd really, really like to find this shirt as funny as everyone else has & am simply not making the connection. It isn't as if I'm being grumpy or anything - I live in a town where there is essentially no entertainment until summer and then we are given free outdoor concerts on Friday nights with quite decent groups: tonight was violin (or fiddle, if you will), guitar, drums, and electro-acoustic bass. As it turned out, some quite attractive people of the opposite gender were there and I enjoyed speaking with a few. Talked with some friends as well.

All told, I'm feeling pretty cool & not negative to speak of at all. Perhaps I am too interested in "real" (hah!) robots or something, but cripes, what is WRONG with me that everyone else is getting a chuckle (even Adder) but I'm not.

This makes me sad. Watch me go to sleep rather than cry (grin).

Thanks, Jaden! And don't forget to add a screening of Robocop to the list.

(Jaden's referring to a twitter tweet I posted yesterday. I got the teacher of the year award at the middle school where I teach art. It really has been a great week- now if only the Magic can take care of business tomorrow night...)
