Petrolcide – from bant-shirts.com

Petrolcide

Now this is a really great design, it may be political in it’s aims but it also expresses the feelings of many consumers when they’re standing at the pump filling up. The shirt is called Petrolcide and is screen printed on cotton, and is made sweatshop free, in the US. Apparently they also have it on hoodies if you are keen on hiding your arms :-)

The Hung Consumer

Those amazing folks at teetonic are “best t-shirt company ever” this week :-) These shirts came all the way from the UK and they are super sweet and very unique. I am particularly keen on the Hung Consumer graphic, being a product of consumer culture. We have over the years tried to make meaning through what we consume. With increasing access to creative tools though I feel we are on the cusp of a consumer revolution where we will make meaning through what we make and create.

Cheers,

Teetonic Sending Me A Shirt

Well teetonic.com contacted me yesterday and offered me a free T-Shirt, well what can I say, i’m a t-shirt whore and totally swayed by schwag, these guys are the total shiznit :-)

I actually really like this one, as someone who has grown up in what is increasingly a consumer culture, I often wonder how else we make meaning in our lives. That’s why i like blogging, it’s not consumption, it’s creative, and subversive. The revolution will not be televised it will be blogged.

Anyway, go buy there stuff, it will fill that little t-shirt sized void inside of you.
