Two Awesome Local T Shirt Companies

1. Print Brigade, or PRBR, has got just what you need for your body. That is, if you like wearing good looking T Shirts. (If you don’t believe me because they’re friends, would you believe Thrillist?)
I Like To Ride Bikes

2. Family Dinner for One, or FDF1, has got just what you need for your body. That is, if you like wearing good looking T Shirts. (If you don’t believe me because they’re acquaintances, would you believe The Boston Globe?)
Kittens

Both places have several designs, so if you don’t like bicycles or kittens, you can still have fun.

The Somerville Gates – Four Years Old

A chance encounter hipped me to the fact that it was four years ago yesterday that Hargo built The Somerville Gates. At which point, the internet went crazy and 4 million people looked at The Somerville Gates’ website in a week. The site had to be taken down to cool the viral internet’s greedy bandwidth needs, but the entire installation is now happily back online where it should be. More coverage from The Boston Globe, Big RED & Shiny, msnbc.com, The New York Times, and of course Boing Boing.

Shepard Fairey Talk At The Institute Of Contemporary Art (ICA) – 2/6/09

I’ve been posting a bunch about Shepard Fairey lately because of his show at Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art which is opening this week.

Tonight I got the chance to hear him speak in the auditorium at the ICA. The event was a conversation with Susan Dackerman, a curator at Harvard, and was something of a free form interview.
Images and more after the jump. Continue reading “Shepard Fairey Talk At The Institute Of Contemporary Art (ICA) – 2/6/09”

Shepard Fairey Is All Over My (Internet) TV

What do you need cable for anymore when you can get programs about stuff you want to see so easily on the internet? Sports. That’s what. (I was just looking to see if the Superbowl is being streamed this year, but couldn’t find any reliable results.)

Also, you know what? I don’t care that the Shepard Fairey backlash is in full swing, I’m still going to the Supply & Demand show at the ICA, and you should to. Let me know how much of a hack or farce or fake or fraud or rip off he is in the comments, I’ll be at the museum.

Olly Moss Movie Poster Design

I didn’t realize last week that the zombie food chain shirt was made by Olly Moss, the guy who made the “Spoilt” T shirt with all the movie spoilers on it. He’s good.

Now he’s reimagined a collection of movie posters in a sparse, delicious style.

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is good. Rain Man is super clever, but Die Hard is the best.
