oh yeah, another one.


ok ok SOOOO many options. who's stoked?

So at the moment I am digging black on basic white, pretty standard, and yet I hate printing black on white. Black ink just annoys me and makes me REALLY paranoid. It is like grease, a greasy abyss that decides to randomly ascend from the beyond and suffocate all that comes in its path. AKA, the shit gets everywhere. I personally don't like white tee shirts, but I figure I don't actually have any that I wear as actual shirts.
And of course I can't forget my dear business partner, I know how he loves those negatives. I am open to printing on any color shirt I can get on short notice. The prints would probably all do really well as black on red shirts.
Haha, now now I know if anyone read my comments they would notice that there was a proposal opened up to work on previously dreamed ideas, well as I have deviated I know, I can never help myself from working on a design.
I hope you all enjoy and purchase shirts. Only thing that sucks is that I print on a one-off basis, meaning, I print usually one shirt at a time, SO that means a couple things. I could easily change ink colors in accordance of the shirt color, and it is a major pain in the ass setting up shop only to print one shirt.

and don't you forget it.

kill yourself slowly, by means of digital manipulation.

notice the difference? Which is preferable?

We live. We heal. We are the voice in the back of your head that says don't, but you do anyway, dumbass.

OK, so Blink 182, as many of you may or may not know, got me into punk rock music, not that they were the eitome of punk rock music, but they introduced me to such bands as NOFX, Less Than Jake, MXPX, etc. etc.

Anywho, I saw that they were on Jimmy Kimmel Live the other night and as the videos loaded on Youtube I read some comments, mainly dissing Tom Delonge's voice. I was enjoying the video but then realized exactly what they were talking about. IF you choose to watch the video above (one of the songs that got me through a LOT of heartache and such) notice the ego on Tom. He went from being this silly, funny character to this egotistical, arrogant dude. He is in his Angels and Airwaves mode I suppose, but it was annoying seeing him have changed SO much. I also have watched several videos on what happened to Blink 182. Mark informed the world that toward the end Tom was talking to them through his manager. It just ain't right. I would love to have the opportunity to see them on this reunion tour, BUT the pit seats are $215.50, Kevin ain't made of that kinda dough people. I would be all about seeing them from the pavillion but I just have this thing about sitting down at a punk rock show. And the lawn, well, fuck the lawn.

I suppose I should have put this little tidbit of information at the beginning, but notice the hair swoop at 2:26, it just shows a certain arrogance.

Feel the metal.

Haha after a brief, yet oh too long, hiatus, I have been working on more designs. I want some comments and hopefully purchases...please. Yeah, so let me know what you think.


Hey all, Tortoise Healer is NOT dead. What started out as a stupid joke in my basement has now brought on many design oriented ...uh... designs. SO if you would like a shirt PLEASE get in contact!!! This is the latest design, straight up. Let me know what you think. Remember, shirts are just $10 so that's pretty cheap.
