The finest in Gammawear


No doubt every Gamma male and woman who treasures her Gamma orbiters will want to run out and buy one of these fine emblems of totally not being a rapist.  Available in a wide range of pastel colors.  After all, you're going to need something to wear when you're on the dancefloor with your quad-gendered acquaintances grooving to the Pink Rabbit Posse.

100 percent cotton and 100 percent guaranteed to prevent sexually-transmitted disease.

Ugh..

Nothing I hate more than incorrect technical information about printing technology.

Unlike traditional silk screen printing, DTG is not limited to just four colors (CMYK) — a DTG printer can produce over 16 million colors.

DTG can print graphics with up to 2880 dpi. Traditional silk screen printing is limited to approximately 72 dpi.

Garments printed using DTG technology have excellent washability because the ink actually penetrates into the fabric. Unlike silk screen and heat transfers, the printed image will not crack or peel off after a few washes. The final print is very soft and not shiny or plastic looking like a lot of silk screened shirts are. The ink appears to be part of the shirt. It’s pretty neat.

FYI: With traditional silk screen printing the designer has to order large quantities in bulk in order to make any profit on the shirts. With DTG printing I can order 1 or 1000 and it’s the same price. This means I don’t have to do extended preorders or wait months before shipping your order.


Completely deceptive. Yes, the quality is better than your crappy press on screens.

But DTG = commerical ink jet printer, printing directly onto stretched cotton with insoluble ink. That's it. Literally, most DTG setups are a regular, off the shelf Epson ink jet printer, with specialty inks.

Which means the people selling this stuff don't even have the faith in the product to order a normal production run of shirts, warehouse them, and sell them from inventory. That would require actual risk.

Your typical entry level DTG setup is maybe $5k. The quality is poor. The ink fades quickly, and the substrate (cotton or blend) has to be thin and be pulled very tight to achieve proper setting. Which means when it shrinks back to normal, or is washed, the image looks like crap. I suppose it's fine for clothing with basic logos or large text that won't suffer from some distortion.

Emails are sent, calls made; they have unwittingly transgressed against themselves and the shadow of John Wayne and white manly-men looms over them. In short order pink magically appears.

Whew! That was a close one.

Aside from the t-shirts, robotic and conformist liberals come complete with buttons you can push that set them running about like a disturbed hill of ants.

One can't help but get the feeling that Scalzi is Andy Griffith in "A Face In the Crowd" and that his open-mic moment is coming soon. I hope for his sake he actually is sneering at his own stupid fans because if Scalzi believes in half the BS surrounding this incompetent bit of graphics he purports to then hell actually is a place on Earth.

On the other hand, kowtowing to every PC mantra in the known universe is an excellent way to sell science fiction books and - it's working.

In pre-internet days, I had a friend, a vintage paperback dealer of renown, who sold the old lesbian PBs to lesbian booksellers by pretending he was one. It worked. He had a snide sense of humor and wrote commiserating "sistah" letters and he'd get man-hating political responses. He showed me some of the letters while he laughed hilariously. They were funny. Sales were brisk. He had adopted this identity because when he tried to sell them PBs as himself, they brushed him off.

You want identity? I got yer identity right here sistah.

Remember the camel toe (as someone pointed out at Whatever). Lambda or Lesbian?

Maybe we need another debate thread to attempt to determine the truth about the gender and/or (dis)orientation of GR.

The other thing which requires care is to insure we don't damage children with rewrites - Peter-gamma Rabbit, or the Velveteen gamma rabbit.

On Bugs Bunny v.s. Gamma Rabbit, both children and adults of my generation and probably the current one (even given the best attempts at suppression) would cheer if GR was turned into hasenpfeffer (though might worry about who was eating it). Or when caught by Wile E Coyote (BB: are you in, Genius? incompetent, intolerable... GR channeling RK, "can't we all get along). Or on Mars (insert favorite envrio-nazi-ism).

I have dim memories of an anime called "crusader rabbit". Were he gamma rabbit we would be living under sharia (which I'm not sure would be worse than Obama).

"Silly Rabbit, Trix are for kids". GR would have convinced them not to eat it - which might not be a bad thing considering the content.

I know not if there are magicians in the audience (disclaimer, I'm IBM order of merlin), but if I pulled GR out of any of my headgear, including a harley bandana, I would quickly burn the item and scatter the ashes across several states.

There used to be a joke about using lawyers to replace lab-rats, one of the punch lines was that the technicians wold not tend to show sympathy. I'm not sure if GRs would be better as the tendency would be to hope they are injecting something horridly and painfully toxic.

And bow my head
Keep my heart slow

Cause I will rape, I will rape for you

OT:

“Your eyes are like deep blue pools that I would like to drown in,” he had told Kimberly when she had asked him what he was thinking; but what he was actually thinking was that sometimes when he recharges his phone he forgets to put the little plug back in but he wasn’t going to tell her that.

Almost on topic:

Chain-smoking as he stood in the amber glow of the street lamp, he gazed up at the brownstone wherein resided Bunny Morgan, and thought how like a bunny Bunny was, though he had read somewhere that rabbits were coprophages, which meant that they ate their own feces, which was really disgusting now that he thought about it, and nothing like Bunny, at least he hoped not, so on second thought Bunny wasn’t like a bunny after all, but she still was pretty hot.

I read VP daily, and for the last few weeks, I've had to hurriedly scroll past that freaking rabbit.

It's just...creepy...

Not knowing what the fuss was about, I went over to McRapey/Scalzi's blog, and read the comments.

My word, these people are mental. Certifiable.

I find this interesting:

McRapey posts his travel itinerary, with about five destinations for the year, including:

May 16 – 19: Nebula Awards Weekend, San Jose

I assumed that this was in relation to his role as President of the SFWA. However, he then writes:

And some of you may ask: Hey, didn’t you say you weren’t going to be doing much travel this year? The answer: I did, but I noted that I would be doing some travel at the behest of Tor, my publisher. So you may assume that the large majority of that travel above is Tor-related in some way.

I can't see how this admission is anything but a conflict of interest. If he's going to the Nebulas (an award bestowed by the SFWA) at the behest of Tor, the dominant winner of the Nebulas while the President of the SFWA, that's a mess. Shouldn't the SFWA be sending him to the Nebulas? Or are SFWA and Tor one and the same?

If Tor is not sending him to the Nebulas to logroll for his stablemates, he ought to have known and made it very clear that the one trip that was not in "the large majority" which are funded/backed/ordered by Tor.

I have no words.

Actually, I almost want one as motivation. To remind myself of what I don't ever want to be.

Shut up

Well, it's been up for a month now and no one at McRapey's even noticed it.

It is looking more and more like McRapey "malleted" the first one because I mentioned Vox by name, and not because he caught the acrostic.

Regarding the heebie-jeebies caused by that rabbit on the left sidebar, grab the top of your browser window and slide it to the left until the left sidebar is hidden past the left edge of your screen. Then you can scroll past that section without getting the creeps.

A little O/T but possibly related. South African minister blames white Afrikaaner Calvinism for high rate of rape and child abuse in South Africa.

I'm surprised Scaliz's not going to Diversicon in MPLS. I mean, c'mon - Diversicon? Are these people irony-autistic? Have they never read Orwell? Or have they and conclude they hate Winston Smith and want a clock that strikes 13? I prefer Discriminicon.

They need a concession stand where they sell MiniTrueSushiBites and BellyFeelBurgers, maybe some DoubleThinkGum.

"It's a new Diversa-day, everybody! Yaaaay!" (claps little hands.)

Why not "MarginalizeWhiteMenCon?" Their motto could be "White Is Black," or "Race and Gender Doesn't Matter - Except When It Does."

Let's have an Orwellian convention. The down escalator goes up, blacks are white, and gays are straight and reality takes a holiday in a massive role-playing game where common sense takes a back/front seat. Just imagine the themes we could have fun with. We could call it RatCon and have a t-shirt with Winston Smith pleasuring a rat.

The herd instinct is incredibly strong over there. Holy cow. The "imagery analysis" comment was the funniest. I felt like I was in college again, being told the white sails of the ships in the harbor represented freedom and that's what Frederick Douglass meant when he described them in his book. And analyzing each other's comments, person A telling person B where they went astray because of some feminist code of propriety...wow, just wow. You can tell that group is heavy in BAs of writing and sociology/psychology/womyn's studies.

@Rufus: I've given my analysis as to why GR is iconic of a primordial petty evil worse than Lucifer ("Non Serviam!" at least is active clear opposition to God, "Whatever" is an even greater rejection of existence).

Make sure you've seen the comments for both the original image thread as well as the t-shirt thread. Some might have wondered why I don't fear sharia - this is the alternative.

However, Vox should come up (and even model ... ?) the Rapey McRaperson version.

Or perhaps worse/better, have GR wear a pink t-shirt with Scalzi - wearing a RMcR T-shirt.

Not one eyed, it has two,
not one horned (no horns, which would have been heard by the two complete ears unlike binky bunny of Groenig),
Doesn't fly.
Is purple though.
Only eats people's souls.

So it can't be the one-eyed, one horned, flying purple people eater.

It wasn't in the Apocalypse, however someone should scan ancient demonology literature.

Vox leading the Ilk in a Minstrel show choir's rendition of Mammy.

The Down escalator means being pushed down a feather (and/or pillow) covered stairs. Remember to Duck! or wear your feather boa (see below).

Who needs a role-playing - common sense wasn't asked to move to the back of the bus, it was thrown under it.

Nor are Gays wearing a Straight jacket unusual, Folsom street is near Castro street.

The problem with Orwell today is the current reality would be hard to parody.

There was a silly Japanese horror film and series featuring some brat and "Gamera" (see wikipedia) which was a Godzilla sized turtle. Too much radiation, and you would get the greater horror, Gamera Rabbit. I'll leave it to your imagination or nightmares. The tortoise and hare monster.
