The Crankflip Tee

Sunday, July 8th, 2007

As I mentioned before I’m now a unicyclist of sorts and, as I should post about soon, I also have a fetish for unique, swanky tshirts- the combination of which brought me to, over the past month or so, immerse myself in the world of professional printing. The result of which I present to you now:

I’m calling it my Crankflip Tee, and it’s been my first hands-on experience with custom tees – how exciting!

Getting more to the point, now that I’ve completed the design I’m getting ready to get it professionally screen printed in a week or two. Since I’ve already had a few inquiries on the shirts from inside and outside the unicyclist community I’ve set up a page for ordering them here.

Over the next few weeks I hope to get much wiser to the ways of low-volume, custom printing. If the experience proves itself to be worthwhile you can expect to see a few more designs to make their way onto quality, sweatshop-free cotton in the not too distant future.

By way of Laughing Squid I found a groovy Simpson’s avator creator (part of the Simpson’s movie promo site). Who knew that an appropriately themed paper doll could be so fun!

Looks like I’m all ready for my guest appearance. Now to work on that getting famous part…

Brisk Green Ice Tea

Lipton Green Ice Tea can This is a posting about me and my taste for “interesting” soft drinks. In addition to the usual suspects (like Jones sodas and Bawls) I also have a fondness for the fly-by-night varieties from major producers as well.

In the past I’ve hoarded dnL and on the off-occasion I eat at a Taco Bell I’m sure to get Baja-Blast from the fountain. Most recently I stumbled on Lipton’s Apple Flavored Green Tea at WWDC last month.

It tastes a lot like I would guess sour apple Jolly Ranchers in liquid form would taste like (and fructose levels commensurate with that). MMmm, give it a try – it’s some good stuff.
