Well, due to some recent events, we’ve had to make some changes around here and although they are temp, it does effect everyone both here at Freaky Tee’s and our customers as well. For the foreseeable future it’s gonna be a bit of a time warp when it comes to the shrits, and might I add ONLY the shirts. But unlike how we’ve been doing them, we will be bringing out the old silk screening equipment. Now let me stress that the mugs and hats will still be done by way of sublimation and as soon as we replace some equipment we lost late last week the shirts will be back being done that way as well. This of course will increase by a few days our production time, from the avg, of 1 day to about 4 days. But be it known that I have put over 13 years in this company and I am not about to stop now. In fact, although for most companies business has been flat, ours has grown in overall sales this year. Seems that everytime those morons in D.C. fuck up, it drives people to vent their anger by way of what their t=shirts says. And we are happy to provide that outlet.
As you can also see, there are some new designs that will be added to the site right after this is posted. Personally, with everything that has been going on these past few months, I think they more than reflect the mood of most people, and if there are some that take offense, screw em if they can’t take a joke.
Today marks the 9th day of protests in Manhattan, protests aimed at the “Occupation” of wall street. Over 100 people have been arrested and yet their is little to nothing that has been said about it by any news organization. Why, is the government afraid of open revolt like what has been happening in the middle east? And by suppressing news about it, are they simply ensuring a real revolution in the near future? I feel that the next few years will be some of the most dangerous for not only the U.S. but for the world as a whole.
A few months ago the was a report on the net that Google was going to challenge Facebook with a new service called +1. It made news at the time due to so many people subscribing to it that it crashed the servers. Now though, it’s back up and today I’ve been setting up a +1 account. I admit that the interface is kinda goofy, but anything has to be better than facebook, though again, I will admit that I am not really into that either. I guess I am just old fashioned but to me, social networking is interacting with people face to face, not just on the net.
Another thing has come to light, it was reported today that they managed to send something faster than light. Seems the swiss have sent a neutrino, which is a strange atom anyway, faster than the speed of light, and that is not, according to Einstein, possible. They are so in disbelief that they have asked Fermi lab here in the U.S. to try to confirm the findings. Now that says one of two things, either they did indeed measure it wrong, or God is having fun and decided to change the rules in the middle of the game. I have always said that God has a demented sense of humor, you can see it everytime a repubafreak or a CONserviTWIT opens their mouth. But someone once said that if man every figured out the universe it would suddenly disappear to be replaced by something even more Bizarre, of couse personally I think that has already happened.
At least twice a year I go to other shirt sites to see what we’re up against, and it is always that same old shit. It seems that once someone has say a couple dozen designs or so that they disengage their brain and say well, that’s all, thinking hurts to much to come up with anymore stuff. And that really ticks me off! This is more than just business, this is a life’s work. I am proud to be a professional agitator, which anyone who’s job it is doing this is. I take pride in thinking up the goofy shit because let’s face it, someone has to. Just look at the new designs below and you can tell that I really believe in what I am doing, so why can’t they?
