   Discussion: Budgiedome t-shirts
Gordondon son of Ethelred · 16 years ago
Who would be interested in a Budgiedome t-shirt? The design will be based on our business card with the now official logo.
It wouldn't have the email addresses or the dot.com. I'm thinking of Navy Blue for the color. If enough people want them we'll have them made up, otherwise we'll go the cafe press route.
Andrea Krause Back · 16 years ago

I think another question we may need to answer before getting into this is...what will the purpose of the shirt be? To promote the dome and its semi-pro appeal and to get more folks interested in it? Or to celebrate the peeps who hang there and have it be all souveniry and fun.

I think the answer to that would help dictate the design.

I quickley did this imag as a sketch, what do you think, give me some feed back and by friday I should have a beter one done up!

Josh Woodward Back · 16 years ago
Would that be legible on a t-shirt?
lawrence Back · 16 years ago
hahaha. what you actually said isn't so entertaining (at least not for me to make a pointless response), but I first read it as "Would that be legal on a t-shirt?"
goovie is married! Back · 16 years ago
i can barely read it right now.
J. Andrew World Back · 16 years ago

Is it the budgie dome texture?  Ok, Maybe I could nor use that.  Let me whip up a few more!

J. Andrew World Back · 16 years ago

First we have Hippy budgiedome.  We can loose the dot com if you want, but I liked the idea of someone scralling it on the words.

Secondly we have disco budgiedome.  If fruvous can have disco bargainville, then we can have disco budgiedome.  I could also draw larry or barry in a leasure suit.  Or maybe not.

It's a girl! Back · 16 years ago
i'd wear the disco one-- that's my favorite of your designs for the shirts
nate... Back · 16 years ago
The first one is a little too "that 70's show"... but I like the second.

I would just remove the "boogie down...." statement.

Josh Woodward Back · 16 years ago
I don't like the first one, I can't tell what it says.

The second one is quite swanky. I don't like the quote on it, though.
J. Andrew World Back · 16 years ago
I kinda thought it looked like a roller disco!
goovie is married! Back · 16 years ago
yes, but...the budgiedome isn't a roller disco.

at least.

not to my knowledge.
John J. Ryan Back · 16 years ago
Oh, but it could be.  We'll install a disco ball at the top, put in a roller track that surrounds the dome, crank up some 70s disco music, and we'll boogie on down! :)
J. Andrew World Back · 16 years ago
Dude, That would rock!  The first Roller Disco at a folk festival!
goovie is married! Back · 16 years ago
y'all scare me.
J. Andrew World Back · 16 years ago
Thank you!
Nik Chaikin Back · 16 years ago
as long as we don't do a disco version of when she talks.
Yvonne Back · 16 years ago
Oh. My. God. No.
J. Andrew World Back · 16 years ago

But when she talks, I will boogie

Annika Back · 16 years ago
I'm up for boogie-ing!
nate... · 16 years ago
nobody wears it AT the budgiedome. You do *NOT* want to be "that guy".

stealthlori Back · 16 years ago
totally.
Phoenix · 16 years ago
Lots of text for a t-shirt. I mean. Relatively speaking almost more text than in a Dave Carter song ;-p

I'm not decided yet...
Josh Woodward · 16 years ago
I like the idea, just not this implementation. The logo reminds me of the little text stretching tool I'd use in high school, and a t-shirt doesn't need a bunch of email contact information. ;-) I'd want a Budgiedome T-shirt if it looked cool, though!
goovie is married! Back · 16 years ago
it's hard to read gordon's post, but i think he says that the tshirt wouldn't have the url or the email addresses.

but i'm with you, josh. i might get one with a different design, but not with this one.

not that i have any idea what this magical different design might look like.

gosh.

i'm extremely helpful. :P
Mamalissa! Back · 16 years ago
speaking of "bootydome" - I'd get one if it were available in baby-tee or tank top format.
goovie is married! Back · 16 years ago
bootydome tshirts for all!

also, where would the money for these budgiedome tshirts go?
stealthlori Back · 16 years ago
to pay for the t-shirts. that is all. it would be a cafepress or self-done small job, like we did for the house party.
stealthlori Back · 16 years ago
indeed. no contact info. no .com. just the word budgiedome in some funky font that looks vaguely like a dome.

we chose this one for the biz cards. personally i like andy's silver-tarp-look creation, but it is somewhat illegible. i think for the shirt we'd stick with the same font as already decided for the cards, just for consistency's sake.

we might want to put some sort of motto beneath the word "budgiedome" or on the back, just so it's not so stark. i've always favored "wandering minstrels adopted," but we'd take other suggestions.
Andrea Krause Back · 16 years ago

This is the type of thing I was wondering when I asked what the purpose of the shirt would be. If it's for fun and souveniry group celebration, a budgiedome in-joke would be cool. But obviously if it's meant to be accessible and make people curious and want to come visit, that wouldn't be the tack to take.

stealthlori Back · 16 years ago
the purpose is primarily publicity, so if people see us wearing the shirt, especially in places other than frff, they can talk to us about visiting or playing the 'dome at FRFF or other festivals. anyone wearing a shirt could say "yeah, they're always glad to have new people come in. get hold of gordon (or Lori or Steve or John) for details. go to budgiedome.com on the web." or whatever. we'll also being giving anyone interested in distributing them a small supply of the cards, so if you bump into ... peter mulvey or someone :D ... he could have our contact info. (yeah, i know. the crack was REALLY good this morning.)

the in-joke thing is kind of counterproductive when we're trying to welcome others, so i think that shouldn't be a focus of anything on the shirt.
Phoenix Back · 16 years ago
Yup.

especially in places other than frff

I've just realised that I'd be the only one in my country with such a t-shirt. W00t!
Make a nice design and I'm so in ;)
Shelly Back · 16 years ago

i understand about the 'being THAT guy' thing, but i know that people from the BOT wear BOT shirts at FRFF, so mebbe since artists know the BOT they know to look for one of those people to talk to about performing there{since they seem to get even -more- of the pros than we do}...so i dunno if it's a BAD idea to be 'that guy' at FRFF...mebbe in the dome, yeah....

*shrug*

just my .02

nate... Back · 16 years ago
naw, being "that guy" is always a bad idea. :)

renita Back · 16 years ago
wandering minstrels adopted

<3
Phoenix Back · 16 years ago

little text stretching tool I'd use in high school

exactly. Or of M$ Wordart ;-)

nate... Back · 16 years ago
amen to that.
:)

Redesign, and I'd be into it.

Kris 'engaged' Bedient · 16 years ago
I would go for one with the budgiebird/dog on it, maybe with a pic of the dome (or not) on the front, and then it can say "budgiedome" on the back (without the names and addys) and what about royal purple?
Mamalissa! Back · 16 years ago
Royal purple with gold trim, and a nice embroidered collar. Maybe a sequined sash. And a jumbo butt-bow!
emilie is CRANKY Back · 16 years ago
whee! see, that's what i was going to suggest. :) great minds, and all that. :D
Andrea Krause Back · 16 years ago
I think the problem with the budgiedog may lie in the fact that it is fruvous-designed. I don't know if that would cause a tangle.
goovie is married! Back · 16 years ago
that's my concern as well.

again, go me for being supremely helpful. :P
J. Andrew World Back · 16 years ago

But if we ask mike ford, maybe we could

Victoria · 16 years ago

So sad I am that I will not be at Falconridge... I have not been to a folk festival in years! A poor deprived little Squee I am.  How I miss the Budgiedome.  Sigh and so forth.

Josh Woodward Back · 16 years ago
Sweet! I love the top one. Maybe with the musical note as well. Very cool.
Mamalissa! Back · 16 years ago
Agreed! It's awesome!
Joe Navratil Back · 16 years ago
As a non-FRFFer (not by choice), am I allowed to suggest the first one for the front, and the (back of?) same graphic on the back "coming over the hill", partially obscured by a hillside?

Yeah, I didn't think so either.
J. Andrew World · 16 years ago
For those of you who are interested, Bootydome shirts are avalivle here!
