Make A Shirt Outta It.

I'm thinking of making a t-shirt that says Science Fiction is Dead.

The thought came to me as I was reading deborahb's entry on genre death.. She wrote, "And genre's dying, right, uh-huh, it's been dying since I began reading articles on it ten years ago. A slow death, then," and I realised that what's needed is a t-shirt. Everything important is put onto a t-shirt. Just ask Che Guevara. His legacy would be taking a beating if idealistic left wingers hadn't put his face onto a t-shirt and worn it round to their meetings instead of taking machine guns.

Science Fiction is Dead. T-shirt. I want one.

Damned if I can get the T-shirt to do that, though...

*sigh*

Apropos of the thread you link to, I'd like to get a t-shirt with a piccie of Phil Dick wearing a t-shirt with the cover of "Philip K Dick is Dead, Alas" printed on it.

Maybe I should make it myself.

is there a place on the web where i can make t-shirts? i know there's a place round me, but they don't do it real well. it's a bit iron and press like when you were a kid, y'know?

i am actually going to make a couple up through the cafe thing site. i was looking at it last night, and it was pretty easy, so long as i can wing a reasonable t-shirt design to upload.

i wonder if this computer her has a graphics programs?
