7.4 - The Man 1, Adam 0

Sad news, especially for Zaak.

So on Monday, my CafePress store burned to the ground (i.e., I deleted the entire thing by mistake). That tragedy was offset by the fact that I uploaded some sweet new designs (see below).

Tuesday, a.k.a. the VERY NEXT FREAKING DAY, I received an e-mail from CafePress admin informing me that a bunch of my content had been removed because it violated their Content Usage Policy. Which they call a CUP.

If Monday was a fire, Tuesday felt like arson.

So apparently I violated their CUP multiple times. I re-reviewed their CUP, and think they were interpreting their own satire and parody rules a bit harshly, but anyway. It's their CUP, so....

Basically Zaak and I are being shipped off to Guantanamo for trying one up the Home Depot.

I'll admit I'm a little bummed. But I will rise again, like an anarchist phoenix, rising from the arsons ashes!

(BTW: the other logos they deleted said "Banana Republican" and "Abercrombian Bitch".)

7.3 - Two steps forward, three steps back...


So today, I'm home sick from work and decided to spend some time on Cafepress. I was updating my shop and I.....


Oh man. Sick to my stomach. You have no idea......

On the upside, I did upload two new designs.

The first is a design that Zaak flat out gave to me. So Zaak, when I make a million off it, I'll take you out for tacos, or something.

Brilliant, huh?

The second is a design of my own, directly inspired by Zaak's.

Whaddaya think?

7.2 - New Premium Shop!

So I finally did it. I've opened a Premium Shop on Cafepress.

Head on over to Civiliezation and tell me what you think.

(It's a work in progress, by the way, so I'm going to leave this Thing active until I feel like I've got most of the kinks worked out and the shop is set up just how I want it.)

A Humble, Embarassed, Tail-Between-The-Legs, Belated, Three-Part Welcome.......

I haven't posted in a while, blah blah, excuses. So busy with blahdey blah blah blooh, and the HUGE blah headaches blah blah explosions!

Seriously. How much blah blah blah apology, and blah forgive me blah blah blah can one guy take? I mean blah and blanh and blodadedo. DAMN REPUBLICANS! Right?

So, now that that is out of the way, some minor maintenance is in order.

This is a triple welcome.

First to Zaak, who through his blogs alone is quickly becoming one of my "ten favorite people that I just barely know and only met once".

For you, a picture by Banksy, a British Anarchist graffiti artist:

(That's graffiti he did on the Security wall in the West Bank. Yes, I know it's awesome. Viva la Rev.)

Welcome Zaak!

Which brings us to Kelsie.

I don't know Kelsie. Petra knows Kelsie. But Kelsie has a cool 5things blog, and that makes her okay in my book!

Welcome to 5thingsing Kelsie. Here's a photo inspired by your Things:

And lastly to Bob. Bob's a good college bud o' mine. We were in Improv together. One of Bob's Things is to put a video on YouTube, which I can't wait for! In the interim, here's a video from YouTube, just for YouBob:
