SERIOUS NEWS EVENTS WEEKLY: Exclusive Leaked Footage of the Tiger Beatdown T-Shirt Printing Party

So, I know and you know that this blog has been all over the SERIOUS NEWS EVENTS lately. Like Ke$ha dance parties! We are all over those!

However, tonight we are also taking care of TIGER BEATDOWN T-SHIRT EVENTS coverage. We are making them! We are documenting the process of making them! We are keeping you apprised of the process! In live-blogging fashion.

We also have a jug of Tiger Beatdown-Approved Cheap Wine, so. You know! Trying to live the life to which we aspire!

Photo 25Step I: Tiger Beatdown T-Shirt Fetuses!

Step II: Looking at pictures of Fiona Apple on the Internet (NOT PICTURED)

Step III: Extensive looking at every possible font before deciding on one we liked best in the first place.


Step Five: Download new copy of Photoshop?

Photo 7

Step 97: Talking about Tumblr! (Seriously, Photoshop takes forever.)

Photo 8

Step 1115: Seriously, A LONG TIME.

Photo 10

Step 125,000,013: IT BEGINS

Photo 11

Step Thirty-Four (I Think?): Laborious cutting? WHAT? MAN, this is a taxing process. (Of which I will take photos!)

Step Nine Hundred and Thirty-Eight: Okay, so the actual heat press process takes like 3 seconds. Therefore, we missed it. Sorry.

Photo 14STEP THE FINAL: We have figured out how to make a Tiger Beatdown t-shirt. This is what it looks like. SORT OF. Your size, color and cut may vary, actually! So, uh… who wants one?

    Yeah, I’m with Gayle. I would buy a t-shirt regardless, but part of my goal would be to make sure that more people learn about Tiger Beatdown.

    But can there be some quotes of yours and Amanda. 🙂
    You know better your publications than me, so I suppose it will be easier for you to pick the best or most hilarious quotes. 🙂

    *sigh* Only, you know, with a space between the “Tiger” and the “Beatdown.” As opposed to my awful typing abilities.

    I do! I do! And yes, I second (third, forth, fifth) the inclusion of Tiger Beatdown.

    I will wear it with my doc martens and listen to bikini kill and it will be awesome….or you know, with my outfits not from the time of riot grrrl, which this reminds me of.

    @Everyone: Yay, feedback! We meant to get the first test run of 14 done last night, but due to Photoshop fuckery and learning how to get everything done, we only got the one test t-shirt above completed. And now I know that we need to put a URL on there! So that’s good!

    @Stephanie: Best compliment… EVER???

    Also millionth’d on the addition of a Tiger Beatdown logo/URL, and seconded on selling these via Etsy, CafePress, Zazzle, Topatoco, or similar. Monies make the blogs go ’round!

    Honestly I wouldn’t get that tshirt cos I don’t get the slogan :C I .. uh … cool? Yes? No? What? We will? I don’t know! I’m not one of the cool kids, obvs :C

    I would intensely love to have a tshirt from Tiger Beatdown though, so. Uh. Despite my unhelpful commenting, I am watching developments closely! :D??

    And I also think selling Tshirts could be a great way to raise funds? Not that I know anything about how it works. Seconding Eneya about quotes: you have lots of great wordiness in this blog here, getting some particularly choice phrases on tshirts would be so cool, if there are any short enough and suitable …

    I am glad doc martens are the best compliment possibly ever for these shirts. I will most definitely wear them with it.

    Also I am with Adrianna. I want to desperately respond to the question “WTF is Tiger Beatdown?”

    I’d like one with the entire text of your BSG post on it, if we can do reccomendations. I’ve discovered there is not actually an upper limit to the amount of times I will read that post.

    Also URL is a good idea!
