What the ruck?

Sometimes I’ve just got to have a paper copy of an article. I like to underline and make margin notes, especially when trying to learn a new skill.

So I turned this post by JC Dodge, on what you might call rucksack-workouts, into a PDF. (Look around American Partisan while you’re there, I guarantee you’ll find plenty more to learn.)

Making mistakes and learning from them

I quit adding new designs to my Teespring shop because “I Heart Puppies” is the only sort of thing I’m 100% confident they won’t suspend. I put designs up here to escape Big Brother…and yes, at the same sorts of prices shirts sell for there. (I totally agree: $25.00+ is a LOT for “just” a t-shirt and so getting this right is a big deal all around.)

Well, in my zeal to save-a-buck/make-a-buck, I literally made what I consider the biggest mistake possible and I did it in my very first official week of business!

I broke the first of The Two Fundamental Laws: “Do all you have agreed to do,” because added to that guarantor of personal integrity, in the mind of a business person, ought to always be the phrase, “At the price agreed upon, come Hell or high-water.”

For a moment last night I completely forgot that this independent t-shirt endeavor was supposed to be primarily about the joy in “Free Expression.” (Beyond that, if I cleared enough to buy a few bags of Black Rifle Coffee® now and again, all the better!)

I have sincerely apologized to the client I treated in error and hope to be given the opportunity to make the situation right. Regardless of the avenue they choose, from this point forward I’ll absorb the fluctuating costs of the “raw materials” (t-shirts) without mention (yes, as I should have already done…) until it becomes clear it’s time to raise the prices stated on each design’s page.

I thank-you sincerely for any past support and again, I hope you’ll bear with me while I continue to figure this all out!


p.s. If you are homeschooling, I especially encourage you to check out the entire collection of books by Richard Maybury.

Attention! Gloriousness is in your future UPDATED

WingedVictoryT_Shirts_re_opening_1may2018_ad_3B
All Happy Workers expected to comply fully (& joyfully, or else) with MayDay Parade directive.

ComReds©™®…

UPDATED 26 april 2018: Get your Team-Foosa shirts in down-to-earthy browns HERE and faded-foliage-greyish-greens HERE.

I have placed even more of my favorite and most loyal designs up on the T-Shirts page. Notice also a brand new preparation-plus-productivity-inspiring, “Tempus Fugit,” in honor of valient blogger brother.

When you order shirts from me, good citizen, remember the procedure I, your hard working fellow comred, must follow. I’ll first order the base “plain” shirt from one of my online good-thinking loyal-working t-shirt sources, so although I haven’t noted it anywhere previously, you are now hearing it first here:

Shirts will take a minimum of 2 weeks from order to finish/shipping. But…have no fear my friends, it is not anything to do with evil boss-owners. I always always always insist on proper coffee-, lunch-, and smoke- breaks. (I have a grand Workers’ Paradise of a Dream, though, of that great and glorious day when I can keep blank shirts on a sturdy work-shelf, close by the place of my artisan laboring…)

So keep saving those rubles. (Sh-h-h. Between you and me, an easy-to-reach savings goal is $25.00 shirt, which = only only only 1453 RUB + shipping.) (U.S.Amerika only, sorry).

I have several new jobs for the “Punisher”

Hollywood_Needs_to_Burn_to_the_Ground_forGab2

Listened to an eye-opening interview that Stefan Molyneux had with Gabe Hoffman, a principal on a documentary called, “An Open Secret,” about the child-rape business endemic in Hollywood. I guarrentee you will feel as incensed as I do after you watch it, for free, on VIMEO here. Please share it widely. More of us need to withhold what that industry craves more than it does our little boys…our box-office bucks.

There is only one truly just “sentence” for this kind of Evil: death.

Comrades…

I have placed several of my favorite and most loyal designs up on the T-Shirts page. Notice also a brand new Ragnarok doomsday “Selector Switch,” in honor of valient Norse warrior brothers.

The 7-Steps: a slideshow pep talk for recalcitrant weekend painters

WeekendPaintersAnon_logo

Can’t include videos here (at my “price level”), so here’s my Vimeo link.

Had fun riffing on those famous 12-steps, not to mention I finally took the opportunity to use some awesome classic paintings from the CD packaged with Dover’s, “120 Great Paintings.” It’s the latest of the many clipart books of theirs I’ve amassed over the past 30 years.
