Home Sewing is Killing Fashion


When I yesterday saw the logo "Home Taping is Killing Music" that I used to see on the sleeves of some of my vinyl records from the eighties, I got the idea for this home sewing logo. Maybe it is time to add a special tax on sewing thread, just like there are special taxes on CD-R, DVD-R, cassette tapes etc.

Update: the logo is now available on a T-shirt at www.cafepress.com/killingfashion

Heisann!

Tror du jeg kunne få brukt logoen på en t-skjorte til privat bruk?

Skal ikke brukes kommersielt.

Send meg gjerne en mail på trondnt(at)gmail.com.

I love it. I saw it on "The IT Crowd" and had to find out what the hell it meant. Even though I was born in 79 and learned at an early age how a piece of scotch tape turned my boring cassettes into blank tapes, I had never seen or heard of the "Home Taping" slogan until I saw your parody. I'm especially embarrassed because I've been an advocate for free p2p music sharing for 10 years now, and yet never did my homework on the history.

I found your image on the wikipedia article and was totally going to get it pressed on to a shirt and be the coolest in school, and then I found this page, and then saw that it was already available to purchase at CafePress. "How convenient!" I thought. And then I see that it's 19 bucks. I just can't justify spending 20 dollars on shirt for a logo, no matter how relevant it is. If the shirt was made from special fibers that kept me warm in sub-zero weather, maybe I'd consider it, but I don't like to pay for wearing a clever picture. I'd rather make that kind of think AT HOME (I bet you see where this is going).

So the question is...How much of that CafePress moola goes into your pocket, how much goes to pressing your graphic onto a 2 dollar Haines white Tee, and how much is CafePress raking in for being the middle man? I don't mean to be nosy or rude at all, I swear. I just find it almost ironic that someone would pay 20 dollars for a shirt that, at least glibly, endorses home sewing. I'd gladly pay you personally for your creativity and permission to use your image on a shirt that I would wear and not sell or profit from in any other way than in cool points and attention from the ladies, but I don't want to pay CafePress a 90% markup just to feel good about supporting an indie artist.

So I guess what I'm getting at is...can I pay for the right to use your image to use it for home sewing?

crazy world, someone outta sell tickets.
