A few friends from way back decided to get a big batch of these shirts to promote a really cool magazine they were planning. The shirts proudly declare, "blert a zeen." The magazine didn't stick around too long, the band resurrected the name for a while, but these shirts have made their way all around my circle of friends and family.
I passed kudos back to the graphic designer who designed the shirt and was half of the genius duo behind this early incarnation of the blert lifestyle.
JM: i don't think they were. do you need the artwork?
CG: you still have anything from that? Maybe this is a job for cafepress...
JM: (i still am not entirely sure what this thread is about.) lol. i doubt i've ever thrown a design away in my life
CG: well that's your design, right? yeah.
JM: yeah. i'm a designer, you never throw away artwork
CG: So it's a classic by now... 15 years on or something? still relevant. people are still talking about it.
JM: it's sacrilege, you just get a bigger hard drive and pray the formats are backward compatible
CG: lol. well if you dig something up, ping me, transfer and I'll put it up on cafepress.
JM: it's a classic design. actually, it doesn't feel dated. except a zeen is kinda an irrelevant concept now.
CG: totally. blert, a blog
CG: blert a tweet. A tumblertog
JM: i'll have to wear one of my shirts tomorrow. just cause now
CG: I'll do it too and snap a pic.
