Slaughterhouse Five: So It Goes

Remember out friends over at Kafkacotton? I interviewed the founder way back in Indie Tee Spotlight #27, he was the guy that travelled around the country in a life-sized cockroach costume named Gregor. It looks like Kafkacotton is back with another literary T-Shirt classic. This time, it’s the Kurt Vonnegut classic Slaughterhouse-Five that is being featured on the latest Kafkacotton tee.

I must admit that I am guilty of never reading Vonnegut’s classic. Then again, there’s a lot that I haven’t read. Maybe it’s available as a free download in the Apple Bookstore or on Amazon.

“When a Tralfamadorian sees a corpse, all he thinks is that the dead person is in a bad condition in that particular moment, but that the same person is just fine in plenty of other moments. Now, when I myself hear that somebody is dead, I simply shrug and say what the Tralfamadorians say about dead people, which is “so it goes.” – Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

Slaughterhouse-Five is available now from Kafkacotton for $24 and all order will receive free shipping until December 24th!

108 Objects From Flight 815

Threadless continues to bleed awesomeness. Don’t believe me? Just take a look at their latest tee: 108 Objects From Flight 815. 108 Objects is an obvious parody of my (second*) favorite show on television, LOST. Nathan W. Pyle did an excellent job of meticulously illustrating 108 lost related objects into the form of Oceanic Flight 815. Nearly everything you can think of LOST related is in this T-Shirt. You’ve got Hurley’s VW, a white rabbit, a polar bear, and of course a submarine. If you are a LOST fan then 108 Objects is a must have. Pick up your shirt before it disappears from Threadless forever ($18).

Oh, and if this shirt wasn’t enough … how about 101 more LOST themed T-Shirts. Yeah, I thought that would peak your interest.

*You’re probably wondering what my favorite show is. One name comes to mind. DEXTER.

Pan Am Brand Power

Here’s an interesting post that I stumbled on Andy Sernovitz’s Damn I Wish I’d Thought of That blog about the power of a great brand. In the post, he talks about how Pan Am merchandise survives to this day despite the airline being dead since 1991. Oddly enough, I saw someone using a Pan Am leather bag just like the one seen in the photo below.

Are any of you old enough to have actually rode on a Pan Am aircraft?
