ok, three things... er, FOUR:
1. i've been thinking about capital letters and i've decided that, like any former old school systems guy, i don't like them unless they're absolutely necessary to the code.
2. i've decided that everyone loves stormtroopers in unsubconscious reaction to the pendular zeitgeist swinging all things shocktroopy since 2000.
3. i needed a new t-shirt for my boys (which i prefer to make myself, so...). this brings us to (MORE ellipses, certainly)...
4. The Stormy 4 tee!
i also have them for adults and on a coffee cup, which is the OTHER thing everyone wants these days (material gratification, not coffee cups). note that this in no way violates anyone's copyright, as this is PARODY -- of The Beatles, of George Lucas and Star Wars, of all those folks who wear stormtrooper helmets to the grocery (like me), of Republicans and Republicrats and Demoplicans and their ilk. well, maybe. but what it REALLY is is an homage to my parents' old white VW bug, which looks EXACTLY like a stormtrooper helmet. Herbie!
get yours here. [NOTE: MY LAME-O PROVIDER HAS DECIDED THAT THIS ORIGINAL, PARODIC, TRANSFORMATIVE WORK VIOLATES COPYRIGHT, EVEN THOUGH IT DOESN'T. SO, YOU CAN'T BUY THE SHIRT ANYMORE. SORRY. -The Mgt. ]
(note: you all MUST KNOW that The Beatles were always saying, "BACK, rebel SCUM" well before it became dick cheney's nixonian mantra.)
