This is our third annual t-shirt contest. We're really going to be blowing the doors of things this fall, and that's why I think we need the greatest t-shirt contest in history.
Here's how it'll work.
This year, there will be THREE winners... because we're looking for THREE t-shirts. One Sound of Young America t-shirt, one Jordan, Jesse, Go! t-shirt, and one Stop Podcasting Yourself t-shirt.
You can submit up to two of each design (six entries, total).
Entries should be emailed to email@example.com.
You can use up to four printed colors, plus any shirt color available for the Alternative Apparel basic tee.
Include printable vector graphics (.EPS format) and a web-friendly jpeg of your design (400 pixels wide), plus your name, address and phone number.
We will accept entries until the eve of MaxFunCon - Thursday, May 6th.
When you enter, you are giving us permission to use your design (duh).
We'll be posting the entries as they come in in three threads - one for each show.
Finalists will be determined by a popular vote, then the winners will be selected by a panel of EXPERTS and SUPER CELEBS, which will most likely include MY MOM. In the past, this panel has included Mike Birbiglia, Jonathan Coulton, Maria Bamford, John Hodgman and other Friends of MaxFun.
Winners will receive a free t-shirt of their design, any item they want from the MaxFunStore, a copy of our upcoming TSOYA DVD, and a care package of crap that's sitting around our office.
I harbor not-so-secret ambitions to make MaximumFun.org the world hub of things that are awesome. Today, I am proud to announce a big step in that direction: the addition of Stop Podcasting Yourself to the MaximumFun.org stable of podcasts.
Hosts Dave Shumka and Graham Clark have been hosting one of the funniest little shows on the internet from their hideout in Vancouver, British Columbia for a couple of years now. They've built quite a following, but I always felt that their following wasn't quite as big as it should be, so I'm proud that we can help bring their charming and hilarious show to a wider audience.
The guys have been active MaxFunSters for years, and their show has been an active topic of discussion in our forum. I'd recommend starting with this episode, featuring MaxFunPal and You Look Nice Today star Scott Simpson, or this one, with Paul F. Tompkins if you haven't yet been initiated into SPY's growing cult.
We're building out the SPY page here at MaxFun as I write this - expect it in the next week or two. In the meantime, check out the show in iTunes
