freaking awesome drummer.

I bought a really cool Zippo Lighter pipe (its a one hitter bowl inside a zippo lighter case- complete with a resin chamber) with Guevaros portrait on it from a "going out of business sale"... This Lighter/Pipe is beyond cool (really).

Anyhow, I was smoking with someone the other month and they said "HEY, Thats that dude whos on all the albums and posters- who is it and what did he do?"

"He invented Rock-n-Roll" I said sarcastically.

"Oh, cool" said the person I was with- Fully believing me.

-Sad, sad times indeed......

But damn I love your shirt idea.

Abso-friggin-lutely!!! I would dig a tee and/or hoodie. Other apparrell? Hats? Beanies? Chonies? Hell, why not some patches one can sew on to their JanSports (or is that too 90's?) Some people, me included, are a little wary to order tees because sizes differ from shirt to shirt. What if you offered some iron-on patches one could apply to their own shirt. I just used some for my pool team's shirts and they didn't turn out half-bad. Done right you can't tell the difference from silk-screen.

RE: Shirts and Hoodies - Should we bring them back ?
wow... look at the results now....

What if I agree with Rafter ? I'd like to hear why rafter said no BTW.....

I haven't voted yet because I'm still undecided.....

Sure the list of names under the "yes" option persuades me.... but not enough...

It would rock if there were more artist's submissions... and good ones....

*To be continued....

RE: Shirts and Hoodies - Should we bring them back ?
Well, why not have an area for high quality images that can then be used wherever you live at a local printers? I know some would like the easy of simply ordering from here, but there are even a plethora of online companies that will print to your desired medium (t-shirt, hoodie etc).

It would be good of course to bring the odd buck or two in to help towards the ever fluctuating donations, but ultimately, with more "exposure" will come other thankful members, some of which would donate, no?

If I were any good with artwork, to be honest, I'd have already had at least a t-shirt or two done.

Can we not use some of the old Conspiracy Central images, just with updated links to concen.org? Let's be honest, we all know what ConCen is short for, don't we? Wink

Unless I missed the post I don't know how you'd know this April. This isn't a secret poll? Anyways, I voted the other No.

Go ahead and make shirts but I personally am wary of wearing anything that could get me labeled as an enemy of the state. If a Ron paul sticker meant you were a terrorist, whats a concen shirt suggest to the establishment? Sometimes I wonder if we as concen members are already on a "who to watch" list somewhere. I will not be advertising my affiliation anytime soon.

As the registrar of concen.org, and the owner of the server, I've already put my ass on the line for a real spanking at any moment. There is no turning back for me.

I'm not saying everyone else here should do the same. I do however believe that we all should be proud of our opinions. We're on the leading edge of an inevitable revolution.

TPTB want us to be afraid of them, but I'm confident that we will win in the end. Do you disagree?

PS: I turned off logging of tracker IP addresses years ago. Even if they wanted to subpeona my server logs, I'd have none to give them. That doesn't stop a mole from joining a torrent swarm though...

RE: Shirts and Hoodies - Should we bring them back ?
I concur with yeti, I have no reason to fear the powers that be and the ruling class. As a moderator, if yeti's watched, we're watched, and to be honest...why so many feel they can somehow "hide" online is beyond me. You've got more chances on a central London street under the ever "watchful eyes". Wink

Unless you approach all online activity like an extremely hardcore hacker with experience, then sad to say, you are easily identifiable already to those within the higher echelons of power that care.

It's not as if "Che" t-shirts worn all over the Western world began to ring alarm bells. :p

Mods know everything on the forum. So does the rest of the WORLD - what you write here is regularly search by 50+ engines. IMO you should be proud of every damn word you write...

The tracker has been, since I took over, incapable of recording your IP.

I will not name the "celebrities" who have PHONED MY HOME #. They called me because they can't believe a download site like this could have a traceable name.

So I get a phone call from "_____________".

I point out the fact that we have a copyright take down notice. Anyone who objects to a torrent we put up can ask to take it down. I take it down. They love that. I have many letters that originated from the lawyers but ended with the author saying "Thanks! You're the first to actually do it.".

Whatever.

ConCen Rules. EOS

RE: Shirts and Hoodies - Should we bring them back ?
I agree with both of you and I'm not handicapped with paranoia. Just cautious of wearing labels in public of any kind. I could get on board with subtle Concen designs. The more subtle, the better. Theres no way I'm wearing a white fist out into public, let alone a "peaceful" protest.

Keep in mind I'm also not prude. I have personally designed death metal shirts and album covers that are sold worldwide. It amazes me what filth and vulgarities people will wear out in public. I wouldn't wear half of what I've produced. Its a matter of personal taste, I guess.

Lets see some designs.

RE: Shirts and Hoodies - Should we bring them back ?
I too wouldn't wear a fist, white or otherwise, purely for it's symbolic connotations and associations. It's also quite "specific" as well, and won't be what all users would want anyway. But I think artwork that says something about ConCen as a whole, the fact that, from my perspective, this place is a kind of InfoHub, which all too often leads many of us off across the web, into libraries, speaking to individuals and other places to research, resulting in a better informed perspective.

I'd be comfortable with a slogan such as:

Looking for real political perspectives, discussion and information rather than pure propaganda?
CONCEN.ORG


But maybe that's still to blatant for some.

I also really like this image April did (I've moved the text from the right, to beneath in this version):

RE: Shirts and Hoodies - Should we bring them back ?
If I had any cash, I'd certainly be into ConCen gear.

If this is of any use, I'm using Wordans for my gear. It includes applets that allow users to select designs you've created as well as designs they can create using images of Wordans products and your uploaded graphics.

You could also get into canvas hangings, in which case ImageKind seems to be fairly decent thus far in this department.

Keep in mind I haven't heavily promoted my gear, so I haven't had any feedback from users at this time. They've got decent front ends, though.

I'm sure you already know to make the image as big as allowed by computer memory and service it's being uploaded to.
Truth appears in many forms. Find those that resonate with you.
