things to avoid

In the US-

"Tweaker" is a term meaning someone who snorts or smokes crystal meth (glass, tweak..etc)

"Slave" is a word I would avoid in any way. In certain cities in the US, you'll get beat down for wearing a shirt that says "slave" anything. Vintage slave would almost imply "old school slave" which conjures very very bad imagery for most.
Side note:The civil war (largely due to slavery/anti slavery movements) produced about 970,000 casualties (3% of the population)


Like they said: "******" is not good here either.

An aussie performer I work with calls me the Knob God. Can you do something gay-bar safe with that one?

Is this true?? That's sounds mental. Did Britney get beat down for that song?

I do agree though, using slaves as a replacement for ******s isn't the way to go.

This is hilarious.

Cool shirts though!

Yeah, I agree. Slave doesn't sound like a good idea. Thanks for the info. Worshiper is better but I'm not sure about that one either. Any other suggestions?

The White Cone Club-hoodie and the balanced XLR t-shirt!

How about a shirt with just a big pic (or cool drawing) of a mic (Tele 251, U47, U67, etc.) on the front?

here are some ideas for you from the ones I have up on my shop... mic shirts rule and i think you could do some interesting stuff to add mic designs into your "theme" too!

I always wanted one that looked like a construction "WARNING" sign that said. "Warning, sound guy is more competent than he appears."

A friend actually had one made for me. But I'll bet you could sell a few.
