Rush, The Mentors, The Germs and Crass: That Disney Shirt Gets Parodied by Dave Noise
I get bored at work, and like to do something besides price records all day. My friend Vince sent me a link to the Disney shirt, and I just found it so wrong (in a good way) that Disney was selling shirt inspired by a band named after a prostitution wing in a Nazi concentration camp, whose singer committed suicide.
My previous obsession has been making posts for a Tumblr blog I made called Lightsaber Record Covers, but I saw this tee, and I was inspired to create a few more ideas for the folks at Disney. The Mentors are pretty much the opposite of what Disney is all about, so I started with that. The others were inspired simply from looking at the wall at the shop here, plus the fact they wouldn't seem Disney-friendly, and their simplicity (and my friend Aron Silzle did the Crass one).

No, but I know more than the basics and I've never met a Photoshop tutorial I couldn't figure out. I've made money doing Photoshop design for people. Not a whiz, but I can make things happen with it.
No. I love Joy Division, and I love Disneyland (the park itself. The old one. Not California Adventure or the surrounding areas. Not the Disney company, dig?), and as wrong as it is, it just does not look cool. (I'd wear the fake Wu-Tang one, but I don't wanna get sued!)
(A few minutes later, Dave sent me a story on Pitchfork saying Disney pulled the shirt.)
Actually, fuck it, now'd I'd wear one since it's now a collector's item.
