Adrienne Curry LOVED them, everyone on his staff (at the time) dug them too, even STAN thought it was cool. But the corporate giants involved didn’t want to deal with a little guy like me. Stan didn’t even get a say. It was at the first Comikaze in LA. They had an after party with Peter Murphy as the headliner.
SO rad, only a hundred or so attending in a small venue. Stan joined Peter, and Peter bowed in his presence. I still think this shirt is a cool homage. I wear mine.
Sooo swamped with setting up the shop. But really, I have gotten a lot of complaints about not doing the modern online shop thing. A SUPER pain that deserved my procrastination, although Godaddy and SHopify have made things a lot easier. It WILL be done by June 15, 2017 and we will be also do pre-orders for the new design production to bring to the San Diego Comic Con in July. Remember, these are the original style of printing. Screen printing. Not the ooky on demand stuff that feels like a rubber badge and weathers so poorly. This is forever print. Even though I have been doing this kind of design for decades, I am in search engine competition with all of those insty-print joints. Especially for the word burlesque, and burlesque t-shirts.
As a result, I have to kinda lay it on thick here with overly descriptive terms. I will try to at least keep it entertaining though.
Once the site is fully functional we can better create this sharing site for Geeks, Freaks, the Tongue in Cheeks, and other explorers of art and music. Comic News too. There is some great alternative stuff out there not getting enough attention. We’ll help.
If you want to be a part of the secret shopping for this cavalcade of pin up quality clothing, and burlesque t-shirts-

3-2017 New Episodes of important comic news. Getcher Giant Size Super Special Collider Heroes NUMBER 100 with many a guest star including Comic Book Girl 19. THEN, scroll down and hear her thoughts on LOGAN.
How do I start. Holy Cthulhu this was a whirlwind of a show. THIS is the year I start taking the clothing line thing seriously and build the shop and promote and sell my patoot off. I lucked into discovering the beautifully opinionated pleasure of Comic Book Girl 19s online existance and immediately looked into becoming a sponsor. Perfect timing! I had an extra room in this big live/work loftspace I operate called Industry Showroom in downtown San Diego and they had no tickets or room to crash in. Boom! We put together a punk rock, Comic Con summer camp and I brought down CBG19 to help work our booth (and boost her profile). Her lovely, bearded assistant Tyson (the robot/videographer/editor/loved one) came with and we had all the makings of a good show.
Here is her take on it.
(On a horrible note; your Danger Factory host- me, Rex Edhlund, is in there but- WOW do I look like crap in this thing. Remember, zero sleep, I had massive responsibilities with outside parties this year, I am building a clothing line, I do marketing, I promote geek stuff, I run Industry Showroom and use these as lame excuses to eat crappily ever after. Ugh, I look like a ripe grape and can’t bear it. My vanity has taken a hit. Frackit! Midlife crisis starting…NOW!)
Our big collaborative booth creative mess was pretty much the island of misfit toys for us locals and luminaries that couldn’t get their own big space. Well, I had the booth but I like to be sharing. So, Danger Factory hosted Comic Book Girl 19 and shared the booth with Platt College and Nerdular. Both of which I will have more to say about later.
You know, I’m a dude. I could go on a bit about this uber-hip, quick-witted, alabaster-skinned, authentic geek with strong opinions, sexy tattoos, hot pink mohawk, and tantalizing sexiness… BUT I am going to focus mostly on her opinions. The chicks got great taste! I love going to her webcasts cuz I know I am going to get some thorough, educated opinions from someone who has paid attention and put things through an OCD wringer. Although I totally dug the movie Prometheus, her way-the-fuck-too-indepth reporting and analysis made the experience a zillion times more fun. I look forward to watching the movie, re-listening to her rants, and watching it again.
Okay, yeah she is also crazy hot. But even if she was just a highly opinionated brain in a jar, she’s a keeper.
At the beggining of this post is a painting of her by Dan Dos Santos for Diana Rowland’s,r White Trash Zombie Apocalypse book. Go to https://www.facebook.com/Comicbookgirl19 to keep tabs on her adventures, she is gonna be a massive superstar. I told you first.
The beginning of San Diego’s coolest time and hottest weather.
The streets are filled with installers, enormous murals appear overnight, saucy Ukrainian pedicab drivers careen through the streets, and buildings with or without tenants become offsite experiences to accompany “the Con”.Â The Convention Center glows from the creative energy inside and the event that everyone, even the douchiest of the jocks, is getting an energetic buzz from the sudden influx of new energy.
I have a space down here and it is always pretty cool, but right now it’s one of the coolest in the world.
Aah, Geek Love.
On the flip side, the restrooms in the Convention Center are already unbearable.Â Really? We can send a man to the moon, but we can’t properly ventilate nerd droppings?
Danger Factory, where geeks rule, weird is cool, and we swim in the exotic cocktail of music, art, and the world.
