Gabba Gabba Che! The EveryT has arrived!

In the synergistic spirit of the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup™, the Clock-Radio and the Industrial Whaling Harpoon / Soft Serve Ice Cream Machine [patent pending, Dimco Industries] we proffer to you the EveryT!
 Tired of choosing among your t-shirts as to whether you want folks to know you support:
1)    a shuttered New York City punk music landmark
2)    a band that helped make the former a cultural landmark, all the while wanting to be sedated.
3)    an English proto-speed metal band whose proclivity for narcotic accelerants is matched only by their brain crushing volume and the renowned wartiness of their front man.

4)    a Communist revolutionary guerrilla doctor who rode a motorbike all through South America, helped Castro oust Batista from Cuba and ended up having his hands cut off by the CIA for his trouble?

Well now you don’t have to choose!
If you were to buy all these shirts separately you could pay up to $845! (Although we suspect the folk at the Mall saw us coming.)
And then if you wore them all at once you’d have to constantly rotate the top one so everyone could see all of them (we’re guessing it would get kinda toasty too.) 
Also, you would look like a jackass.

Now you can look clever, spiffy AND stylin’ all in one quality garment.  Our internationally renowned team of talented textile beautifiers have whipped up some top-drawer graphical alchemy and combined four (FOUR!!!!) iconic tees into one ├╝ber-tee to rule them all.*

*Your ability to rule may vary.

We know you’re gonna want to look your best when Greenpeace™ takes a video of you enjoying a chocolate / vanilla (see? synergy again!) swirl waffle cone with jimmies right after you fire an explosive harpoon into the side of (one of the few remaining) Balene whales.

The Dimco Industrial Whaling Harpoon / Soft Serve Ice Cream Machine, the only explosive harpoon and dessert delivery device you’ll need.

Err, rather:

EveryT, the only T you’ll ever need.

(Buy two though, so you can wear one and wash one)

EDIT! The EveryTee is now available here

Donate to Tornado Victims By Downloading WINNING from iTunes. (Currently there is no way to donate to victims of the track itself.)

I donated to tornado victims by buying the Charlie Sheen/Snoop Dog single WINNING. The above photo shows how to properly file the track once you have downloaded it.

Less painful way to donate: Text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10

Der Tzitung Has Issued an Apology and it is Nonsense

By now you probably heard about the ultra-Orthodox Hasidic newspaper, Der Tzitung, which "photoshopped" Hillary Clinton and Director of Counter-terrorism Audrey Tomason out of this now iconic situation room photo.

Well, Der Tzitung has issued their explanation/apology and it does not fly with me.

A portion of the apology goes as follows

"Also present in the Situation Room were various high-ranking government and military officials including Secretary of State, the honorable Hillary Rodham Clinton and another female participant.Our photo editor realizing the significance of this historic moment, published the picture, but in his haste, did not read the "fine print" that accompanied the picture, forbidding any changes and published a picture omitting the female participants in the room"

Here is the problem "omitting the female participants."
I use Photoshop all day in my work and I have OMITTED many people from photographs.  When you are "omitting" or erasing a person you are left with nothing underneath.  A white human shaped space where that person used to be.

Der Tzitung did something we all know as "doctoring" a photograph.  Removing the women and replacing them with an approximation of what was behind them.  This is NOT an attempt to adhere to a religious custom.  This was an attempt to deceive the reader.  When you OMIT the women from the photograph you erase ink.  When you "Photoshop out" the women you erase history and progress and the representation of something you are obviously afraid of.
