Just Remember You Are Unique, Just like Everyone Else – From Turtle Head

unique

When a company gets in touch with me and tells me they’re called “Turtle Head” and their tag line is “touching cloth since 2006″ my expectations for awesomeness are set pretty high. I can’t say they dissapoint, the t-shirt “Just Remember Your Unique, Just like Everyone Else” is inspired.

I wonder if they got the idea from John S. Hall (lead singer for King Missile), from his poem called “saturday“…

I want to be different, like everybody else I want to be like
I want to be just like all the different people
I have no further interest in being the same,
because I have seen difference all around,
and now I know that that’s what I want

read the rest of the poem…

    Actually that cool quote “just remember you are unique, just like everyone else” is from Margaret Mead

    I just heard it for the first time a week or so ago while watching Steven Spielberg’s reality tv show “On The Lot”.

    I think the actual quote is “Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.”

    Let’s activate something. My wife can’t believe they’re called Turtle Head. Also, John S. Hall almost hit me in the head with a sledgehammer.

    Blackspots are a good alternative to chucks. Not nearly as accessible but definitely more conscientious.

    You are special just like everybody else ;) Do you get the irony here? Truth is you’re nothing special. When you die it will hardly make a difference for the world and you will be remembered by >50 people.

    It will make a difference. The quote means, you are unique, but everyone is unique in their own way so don’t be too proud :p
