i ordered one. hope the transaction went through.
That's fantastic, but won't copyright infringement get you in trouble? I'm not trying to be a killjoy, I totally want one of the shirts =)

That's one Kick Ass Design Rev! Way cool! I've just ordered one too.
How are they printed?
These are really cool!! You need to make toddler sized ones. My nephews would love a set :)
these are awesome!yeah, how did you get them printed? and howd you get so many of them to be printed?really cute :)
Hi everyone! Wow, thank you for the comments and orders. I make these myself, it's the same process that Cafepress uses, a heat-transfer design. They are not screenprinted, I couldn't afford to get that many shirts done, there are too many colors in the design. I hope this doesn't offend anyone that ordered already. This is a design that I drew myself in Adobe Illustrator, and literally, I started working on the first design of Robert in about 2001. I'd be happy to do some toddler-size shirts if you'd like to order some, DA.
Awesome! Great work :D Will definitely order one.
Nice work, but out of curiosity, why is the shipping so much?
Shawn, since I didn't know where these would be going, the shipping I set as a flat fee, so I could use the fastest shipping available for each order.
my assumption was that they were sent by boat, in honour of RS. cost goes up taking inflation into account to account for the time they take to get there, like a cure lp...its all very symbolic....wish I could get one but i dont have a credit card!! like a good little luddite...
Well, Rev, I'm interested, but I'd want to get two, and unfortunately, that would cost me $15 in shipping. :( Any possibility of a discount in shipping for multiple t-shirts?
Hi Shawn,Sorry my paypal page isn't very sophisticated. I'll be happy to send two in the same shipment. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.orgI know $15 seems like a lot for shipping but I wanted people to get them very quickly. If there are those who want a teeshirt and want to pay for the "slow boat", just let me know and I'll be happy to work with you.
will they still be on sale on a wk from friday? because i wont have the money until then :(
sara - i can order one for you and you can pay me back if you want.
chris- got ur email....thats great bc u can do 2 for the price of one shipping wise :)

i have been in the chat almost every day except yesterday - and i always see people there...your timing must be off. :)
Chris, I've emailed you, check your inbox.
Here's a link to the bigger version of the teeshirt graphic, for those who want to see the level of detail in this design.
I am unable to order. The cart comes up empty. Am I too late? Or is it just not working from Le France? And can I hold one until I get back in a couple of weeks?SIL VOUS PLAIT?
Cat, you're not too late :D There shouldn't be any problem, I've gotten one order from Europe already. If you are having problems, just email me at email@example.com
is it possible to do all this when I come back on July 15th? or is that too late? thanks so much - i just adore these shirts, as i told you in ft. laud!
Cat, I would be happy to wait for you to come back, you don't have to buy one now, unless you just HAVE to have it when you return.
Well, I would love to have it when I return, but I can wait! Thanks so much and I'll be in touch mid-July. :-D
CAT!!how is france?
It's Le Great! :-DMy feet are aching from all the walking, though, but I need the exercise! Ya'll are still up, btw? The clock on my computer is still set on Eastern Standard Time. Of course, I am up too early for my own good, but I guess I'm still jet-lagged.
Cat, what size of shirt do you prefer?
i added another vid to youtube...the one of us screaming all crazy and then the eyeball shot of us...heheheh...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hWbbrhkEUwfigured while i was uploading humiliating videos of myself...why the fuck not...what have you seen in france so far?
Chris, that is so funny! LOVE you guys! Turning the camera on yourselves is too classic!
rev - yeah im over being embarassed. fuck it. some person is even writing rude comments on my porl and jason meeting vids. but fuck 'em. who cares.
I wondered if you were going to add that one! LOL. Now we have PROOF of our mortifying dorkiness! Well, I am in Paris currently. I have been here quite a few times so I am somewhat used to it. Love it, of course, but I have seen all the big sights before. That sounds so jaded, but I don't mean it that way. Anyway, on Sunday we went to Monmarte, the formerly bohemian area, where Sacre Couer is located. That place was CRAWLING with tourists (ourselves included, of course), so it was a bit icky, truth be told. Yesterday (Monday) I walked around I the vicinity of Notre Dame, the Seine, etc., and onto the islands, Ils St. Louis and Il de la Cite. I just took it easy, really, but one thing I have noted is that the prices here are even MORE outrageous than in the past. I had a bottled water and just a little bit of ice cream at a cafe yesterday and it cost 13 fucking Euros - that's nearly 20 bucks! WTF! Granted, it was in the very touristy district, but still: that's fucking sick! And the room service in this hotel - fucking forget about it! Today I will hang out with the wife of one my bf's co-workers (they are attending a conference here). Not sure what we will do yet. She has a little girl, so a lot will revolve around her. Tomorrow, Thursday and Friday, I/we will hit the museums, since that is the main draw for me in Paris. Saturday we go to Amiens, to visit my bf's parents. Amiens is home to the most beautiful gothic cathedral in Europe, and his parents live in its shadow, literally.
rev, chris is hilarious that way. i just loved attending the austin and nyc shows with her!
Chris, people can be so rude! Delete the bastards!
christ! and i was bitching about the prices in NYC!
chris, some jerkwad was leaving rude comments for both my cure and tom waits vids, so i deleted the comments and blocked the user. mwuhahahahaha.
Sounds like a lovely trip, le monde traveler! I'm sure I screwed that up, but oh well!
chris, paris is outrageously expensive. it makes me sick, actually. once upon a time it was affordable to travel here. no more! i mean, my ice cream scoops were TINY, and it costs 8 fucking euros! i didn't see the price before i ordered or i would have laughed sardonically and not ordered. i am a dumbass - always look at a menu in paris! doh! a fucking bottle of water at a cafe costs 4 euros. that's 6 or so bucks. WHAT THE FUCKING HELL!
meh. i figured id leave the comments there and let them expose themselves for the asshats they really are. i thought a kid wrote the comments (just sounded very immature) but i looked at the profile and the person is 35 years old! how sad is that!
not to mention i hate bottled water - such a rip off - but you can't order just plain tap here! le monde traveller sounds good to me, rev! i'm no french purist. fuck the french, anyway. KIDDING! sort of. :-)but yeah - things here are too costly, and this place is crawling with peeps. i like paris and all, but the summer is the worst time to come. amiens will touristy, too, but a bit better.
Chris, I just rewatched that vid - fucking hilarious!
hahah yeah its pretty bad. dont you just love the screeching in the background? and it looks like robert stops and just looks in our direction with a wtf? look on his face!!! oh man! hilarious!and did you see my flowers? :D
yes, i did notice that robert seems to look our way... but i thought that was just deluded wishful thinking on my part. and the fleurs ROCK! that is so awesome he said that and put them there for all to behold. robert loves him some christinap!
i still think it's hilarious that we were screaming at him when you gave him the flowers. grown women shrieking like 13 year olds at a beatles concert! i swear i would jump on stage if i could! good thing they have barriers and burly security dudes. :-)
rev- why is shipping so much? cant you just toss it in a bubble envelope for a couple bucks?
hahah cat!i didnt even realize what i was doing when i gave him the flowers. i do remember him looking as kinda strangely.my wishful thinking: that rs was thinking: "havent i seen you before?" :D
indeed he was looking at us strangely... like, "who the fuck are these dorky women shrieking like prepubescents? you'd think they'd never seen a black-clad grown man with freaky hair and make-up"mmmmmm... freaky hair and make up...i really don't give a fuck, though! fun times and i'd do it all again in a heartbeat. secretly robert loves the girly attention, anyway. :-)
yes!!!!!!! i hope he does!! wooo!! because im sorry but i cannot see mary doing that for him at home. she's probably all "settle your ass down, aint nobody kissin yo ass up in hyah. you can git ya own damn tea yaself!!"hahah!!! ghetto mary!! and rs is all "yes mary" and shlumps off to fix his own tea.oh god i do remember blowing him a kiss too! christ - how stupid am i!!!
you blew him a kiss? rofl! I love you!i'd like to blow him too. :-)a KISS, that is. anyway, lol about ghetto mary. "yo homez you ain't no pop-star wit' me so you best get yo gangsta ass on out that bed, b! and while you at it you best comb that freak-ass nappy hair"(shades of don imus, sorry! i've already been accused of racism over at the official, so i'd best stop there)
OH FUCK CAT!!!!!! i am DYING over here!!!!! and im trying to be quiet bc hubby is sleeping right next to me!!!OHHHH HELLLL!!!!!!! TOLTOLTOLTOL!!!!!!!!!
HAAAAAAafreak-ass nappy hairholy FUCK i am dying over here!!
LOLme too - you're crazaaaaaaaay! hubby is prolly like, "what the fuck is going on with wifey" in his cute greek accent. we have been cured, that is what is up!
yeah - even one of the dogs keeps looking at me like "lady, please. STFU!"hehehe - STFU = my new favorite acronym! along with GTFO!! :D
and hubby is sawing logs over here...he hasnt slept this hard in a while...i been wearing him out lately though...NOT LIKE THAT PPL! he hurt his knee and we have been running around for days doing stuff - today we met sara and two of my other students and went to the moody gardens aquarium - and we were SUPPOSED to go bungee jumping but the weather was fucked up - lightning. come ON - lightning? pfft. please. oh well next time i guess.
do you think when bobby and mary are reunited after each tour he says, "hello again" to her? and then she says STFU b!" and then he says "Q" ? and she says "GTFO!"i have to go meet my friend. we's goin' to some gardens, yo!
chris, you really should upload that brief video of you with the security guard. HILARRYUS
i am going to send craig pics soon - and i will include the pic of my dumb goofy ass and the security guard. have fun today cat! glad you took the time to visit us over here! now GTFO and have some fun! :D
Those look kick ass. I would order one but I'm far too skint right now (but it is my birthday on Friday so hmmmm?)I'm lucky enough to already have a Robert Smith from South Park shirt. It says "Robert Smith Will Save Us All". XD
Hi all,Looks like I missed out on all the fun again - goddamn timezones!!Sara - I'm so pleased you liked the TimTams - let me know how you go with the Tim Tam slam.Chris and Cat - you are bothHILARRYUSI cannot wait to see a Cure concert with you ladies!!!
Hi Andrew - how's the whether in the UK?And happy birthday for Friday - Independence Day!
The weather is fantastic right now Elise!!How are things down under?
Good morning, all!Anyone else having trouble getting into Meebo? I was on all day yesterday without problem. :)
Hi Kate! I haven't been able to get into meebo this evening.Andrew - life down under is not too bad.
Hey, Elise!Are you getting a Flash Storage error?
It just took ages to come up. I checked again a minute ago and it seemed ok for me
Yay, I am in. Thanks, Elise!
christ - I've just been watching some footage on You Tube of The Cure at the Bizarre Festival in '98 - they reek - RS appears drunk and the performance is lumpy with bad notes ahoysorry - nothing to do with this thread, but I've never seen them really bad live before - no wonder RS came very near carrying out his threat around this time
Heh Ginge... I have never seen that, sounds excruciating.
The t-shirts are great looking, but I can't get behind that level of copyright infringement, especially of people whose work I respect. :^.
Every time I look at that design I crack up--esp. the one of Simon. I think it's the combination of the grumpy face and the chest hair.You know who's gonna laugh the hardest at this? Their spouses.
you know what else KICKS ASS?a cheap white t-shirt with an iron-on design that will wrinkle and crack upon several washings. yours now for only $35...a bargain at half the price of a regular Cure tour shirt. more evidence that Cure fans will buy ANYTHING.
aw! how cute, he's jealous
just got mine!a fantastic designplease send to England asap!ignore the wankers comments abovethe prices are reasonable considering the effort & time!
Hi CoF peeps!I've sent off the first round of shirts, so people who contacted me yesterday will have theirs soon! Requests from today will go out tomorrow. I updated my blog post with new shipping options, and a link to the design so you can see it better. As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Cheers everyone, and thanks so much for all your kind comments, it's fun to be able to share these with people who will appreciate them.
SHAKEDANSHAKE - i LOVE your name!!! that is so FUNNY!:D
Rev, These are too cool! I just sent the link to my wife telling here since today is my Bday to get on it!!!!!
Not that it's as awesome as rev's... but I saw this cure shirt online as well:http://www.cafepress.com/rocketpackdsgns/5730040
Zach, that is so cool! I want one!
Yay! My shirt came today! I so love it!
Mock Goth Gurl, I'm so glad you got your shirt already! I was wondering how long it would take to get all the way across the country!
Hey thanks Rev!
