Trashing Not Available


here's a quick photo i took with my phone of the new Not Available print...

The zip hoodie looks nice too, but couldn't get a good photo with it. Or at least, I didn't spend enough time trying to get a good photo of it.

anyhow, these won't last long, but probably longer than the last items we had that lasted 4 days or so.

kisses...

^ I got your google right HERE!!!!

Hey RALPH AMERICA! Hard to see in the pic, are the "trashed" bits supposed to look like rust?

Pretty nifty, digging deep for change - Where's that Obama?

Before I zoomed in on the picture, I thought they were leaves falling around Edweena.

I wonder why we can't have a good picture of the hoodie as well.

I just received my Mt. Rushmore tee and trashed N.A. hoodie yesterday. Both are very nice.
How about some Vileness Fats tees. I've always liked the "unfinished" Atomic Shopping Cart design but any characters from there would be cool.
Thanks guys, you're the best.

^ Oooooooh, good one - A boob patch of maw (or Weescoosa, or Lonesome Jack, or the nightclub singer, etc) on the front, atomic shopping cart on the back. Tasty.

Got my trashed NA today, superlative product as always. Just beautiful. The hardest decision will be which Rz stuff to be buried in. Not sure I like this version of "trashed" (I liked the crinkly MTR more than rusty Edweena) but it sure beats a straight LP cover. Keep it up, pretty-please!

Somebody please tell me again why we are "trashing" the art on some of these shirts/hoodies?

I don't get it - is this what all the cool kids are doing now?

Are these supposed to be like all the "distressed" fake-o "Led Zeppelin 1977 World Tour" (etc) shirts that the ironic youngsters are buying in department stores?

(I'm pretty sure I would have bought some merchandise with non-trashed 'Not Available' designs... but I'm not walking around with one that appears to have been pooped on or something...)

What gives?

They look like the LP art was printed on a metal plate, and then left out in the rain to flake off and rust. I like the unedited LP art a little better, but it's still pretty neat. I've always been of the opinion that straight album art on a shirt is a pretty poor excuse for merch (i.e. "anyone could do it") but dollars speak louder than me, so what do I know... I should also mention, the sweatshirt that it's printed on is VERY warm, heavy-duty, just great! High-quality shizzle as always. Buy or die!
