Vote Yes On Prop 19

I don’t live in California, but if I did I would definitely be voting YES for Proposition 19. Not familiar with the Prop 19? Here’s some more information:

“Proposition 19, also known as the Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010, is a California ballot proposition which will be on the November 2, 2010 California statewide ballot. It legalizes various marijuana-related activities, allows local governments to regulate these activities, permits local governments to impose and collect marijuana-related fees and taxes, and authorizes various criminal and civil penalties.” via Wikipedia

I honestly do not see why marijuana should not be legalized. I am serious. It’s not cocaine and it definitely is not heroine. In fact, some might argue that health wise, it is better than a pack of cigarettes that you can legally purchase (I am one of those people).

Check out these ads in support of Prop 19:

And CNN takes a look at legalizing marijuana:

I’d love to hear what YOU think about Proposition 19. Do you think marijuana should be legalized in California? I’d especially love to here to what people from California think.

And while you ponder your position on this topic, take a peek at this pro Proposition 19 T-Shirt from NerdyShirts. It’s reminder that the November elections are just around the corner so be sure to vote YES on Prop 19!

DBH 10K 2010 Top 24 Revealed

Every time around this year the T-Shirt community builds up a frenzy in anticipation for the Design By Humans Contest. For the Design By Humans community, this is the time of the year that matters, and for the bright artists that make up the top 24, this is their moment to shine and make some big bucks doing it. Every year, the team at Design by Humans choose the cream of the crop for their community to vote on – the big winner wins a whopping $10,000. Past winners include AJ Dimarucot, whom used his winning to start his own clothing line for infants. Last year’s winner, struck gold with Mecha-Labaw.

As we’ve seen with the past DBH 10K contests, it doesn’t just take a great design to win, but also plain old hustle. Every vote counts, so each designer tries crazy tactics to garner the most votes. 2009 winner Christian San Jose pulled out the big guns with a full fledged social media campaign, and it paid off. 2008 Winner AJ Dimarucot used the power of family to spread the word, and that did the trick for him.

I’m interested to se what this years DBH cream of the crop do to set themeselves apart from the competition to win the hears and votes of the design voting public. That’s what I’m interested in.

Oh yeah, and I also like to pick my favorites. Here’s are my top 5 favorite designs from this years top 25! Which do you love?

Threadless Powerscore

Jeffrey and Jake previewed the new Threadless Powerscore system (see video below). I’m not one of those threadless fans that score designs religiously but I can see how this is an improvement. It’s so much easier now to go back and forth between submissions, something that is difficult to do in the blogs. All in all, I like it! The powerscore system should be the defacto method for scoring tees on Threadless.
