  1. That company makes promotional items “for your business” sweetie. It’s an advertisement not an actual retail item.

  2. Yes, I’m aware of that. But, I can assure you, you can actually buy that shirt. There’s some on the racks they have inside the store. But the act of that itself – this logo-centric apparel craze we’re on, this corporatization of our appearance is sad and true. That we’re promo sapiens is quite apt, really, just seeing it written so bluntly (even in a B2B advertising sense), is sad.
    Of course, that being said, I’m probably going to whip up some Pencilneck Software stuff via Cafe Press sometime soon. Cause I’m all about self-promotion.
    I’m such a hypocrite. Or maybe not. Maybe promoting yourself is fine. But not paying good money for the privilege of advertising for someone else? that sucks.
