UPDATE (Feb 17th 2020): Originally the dot in the “i” of Abides was a bowling ball surrounded by bowling pins (view it here). That was too difficult to execute so I removed them and created a new patch for the right sleeve. Original post as follows:
Crossing my fingers with this one, as I’m breaking a few of my own rules: don’t mix sports and don’t use unusual team nicknames. I enlisted the team’s bowling uniform from the film, but had to stick to a conventional baseball template (sorry).
Baseball season is upon us, so here is a Boba Fett-inspired design for your eyeballs. It is mostly based on his insignia. I doubt this will be offered as-is due to the skull (my friends at Regal Robot sell these by the way), not sure what I’d replace it with.
Geeky Jerseys has been selling baseball jerseys for a few years now, but few and far between in my opinion. Sign-up for the baseball jerseys you want in their By Demand section. Please spread the word, tell your baseball buds about me and Geeky Jerseys. We’re Canadian, so mostly harmless.
Thought I’d do something different for Spaceballs here, instead of their usual branding. That is all gold trim, just like the ACE logo on the combs from the film. I hope you like it, at least for a chuckle.
The design should be pretty self-explanatory, so how about a rant? I don’t have overdraft protection on my chequing account, so it’s impossible for me to dip below a $0.00 balance on my own. But if the account is very low on funds, and the bank takes their monthly fee and puts the account into a negative balance (-$10.00), they’ll charge me an overdraft penalty of $30, even though they technically did the overdrafting. Seems unethical and predatory to me.
If the account is in a negative balance because of what the bank did, then that should be the end of it. The customer will pay the negative balance eventually, if only to resume banking, so the bank will be made whole for the monthly fee sooner or later. But an overdraft penalty? It just strikes me as penalty for being poor. Am I being silly about this? Let me know in the comments.
It’s playoff time, and is there a geekier/timely nod to the 2015 World Series than Back to the Future 2‘s depiction of a Cubs win over Miami? So I thought I’d draw up a uniform for the fictional Miami team (the Gators?), which as many of you know preceded the MLB’s expansion into Florida with the Marlins and Rays in the mid-90’s.
Just so this screams BTTF2, the front of the jersey is essentially the same as the billboard image: the Alligator mascot standing in front of the word Miami. I had to fix the right leg and ditch the painted look of the logo. MLB and World Series patches were added to mark the occasion. The Gator is wearing a blue hat, so figuring the players do too, I added blue trim to the sleeves. It’s a weird color scheme.
No plans to release this, but you can get your hands on a Pepsi Perfect soon, if you can afford it.
Another baseball design for your eyeballs, this time a BSG-themed baseball jersey. Going with an Atlanta Braves look, with a spaceship replacing the tomahawk. I think it sorta works!
Stuff inspired by NBC/Universal is forbidden, so we can’t offer anything BSG (or Jurassic Park, Last Starfighter, Stargate, etc.), sorry.
