Tcritic and Lucky Threadz featured in the Colorado Springs Gazzette

lucky threadzThe Gazzette just did a story on Lucky Threadz who are based in Colorado Springs. The paper had called me up when they were researching the story and were nice enough to quote me, but why oh why in 2008 can’t they figure out how to create a hyper link for gawds sake. Anyway, here’s the quote.

“Lucky Threadz has done a good job of creating funny T-shirts that connect with various subcultures and cult followings,” said Karl Long, a San Francisco man who started Tcritic.com about a year ago and receives about 30,000 unique visitors to his site each month. Long, via e-mail, also praised Lucky Threadz for seeking out top designers, such as “superstar” T-shirt designer Tom Burns.

Lucky Threadz are doing to be nice enough to send me a copy of the actual paper as well, thanks guys.

    Well, maybe in 2008 they’ll have hyperlinks, but I just don’t think this 2007 world is ready for it yet…

    I can’t believe I put that much effort into mocking a typo.

    Good work on the quote. All publicity is good publicity as they say.

    good quote, Karl. yeah… old media sucks, outbound linking only for their advertisers

    i agree with rangga. having worked for a newspaper before, they’ll jump through hoops if there was some advertising dollar involved.

    The picture of that automatic press brings me back. Once a girl got her arm caught between the screen and the board at our shop. The press picked her up, broke her arm, then dropped her on the cement floor. That’s why I worked the dryer.

    I don’t know why I was thinking it was ’08 already? maybe because I just had my b’day, feeling older :-) Anyway, they should still have links!
