<p>emily and i watched some Planet Earth (Deserts) when we went to bed. afterward, i fell asleep for a bit, then woke up very suddenly for some reason. whatever it was i couldn't fall back to sleep. so i went to the computer room to do some nerding which included reading my feeds in <a href="http://www.newsgator.com/Individuals/NetNewsWire/">netnewswire</a>. that's when the night takes a weird turn.</p>

  one of the feeds i subscribe to is

    Small typography I think, in the middle. Japanese and English, obviously. Perhaps about six-eight inches across?

<p>the sticker is question says something in japanese. then right below it in english "please do not get into mischief."</p>

<p>i thought, 'sure i could make one those easy enough' because emily bought bookis' screen printing gear a while back and we're finally getting around to going forward with it. i'm also doing some <a href="http://rubini.us/">rubinius</a> shirts for <a href="http://blog.fallingsnow.net/" rel="met friend colleague">evan</a> for <a href="http://conferences.oreillynet.com/rails/">railsconf</a>.</p>

<p>then over the course of the next few hours other people were saying in the photo's comments they'd want one if they were made. so i decided to go forward with making. i stayed up all night building a simple page for <a href="http://theresistancearmy.com/" rel="me">the resistance army shirts</a>, announced it on the <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/cityofsound/463874954/#comment72157600210651272">flickr photo page</a>. then the orders started flowing in from all over the world: texas, california, sweden, australia and a ton from the u.k. awesome.</p>

<p>it's crazy how fast i went from 0 to lots of orders. awesome. awesome. awesome. if you want one, go order from <a href="http://theresistancearmy.com/" rel="me">the resistance army shirts page</a>.</p>
