Max Headroom t-shirt

Max_Headroom_design_blackA great t-shirt of an icon of the 80’s TV. Max Headroom is still a cult among early cyberpunk lovers.

Max Headroom: 20 Minutes into the Future is a 1985 cyberpunk television movie created by Chrysalis Visual Programming Ltd. for Channel 4 in the UK to provide a back story for Max Headroom, a computer generated TV host. A British produced, yet American broadcast, television series, Max Headroom, was later developed from the original film.

 The Max Headroom story

This is a extract from a great long article about Max Headroom movie and TV series.

Max Headroom was  about an accidentally-created, computer-generated being named “Max Headroom” who lived inside a television network’s computer system.  Max, as he was known, was forever randomly popping up in each of the televised episodes with pearls of wit and wisdom, delivered in his trademark computer-to-blame stutter, often aggravating friends and foes alike.  Still, Max was a generally likeable creation once viewers got to know him.

Max Headroom the character was “born” when an actual news reporter named Edison Carter – ace investigative, mini-cam-toting reporter for Network 23 – had a near-death encounter in pursuit of a story.  On a motorcycle, Carter was racing into a parking garage on the trail of some hot information when he smashed through, and was knocked out by, an automated entrance gate emblazoned with the warning phrase “maximum headroom.”  That was the last phrase the erstwhile reporter recorded in his brain.

Cyberpunk, High-Tech, Low-Life T-shirts

High-Tech and Low-Life. A definition of Cyberpunk that you can wear now. Cyberpunk_Hi-Tech_low-Life_model_1 Cyberpunk_Hi-Tech_low-Life_model_2 Cyberpunk_Hi-Tech_low-Life_model_3 For those “obscurantists” you have 2 designs without the word Cyberpunk. As always with the superior quality of vynil; sleek, elegant and geek. I’d like your friends to say “Where did you get it!?”. These three different t-shirt designs revolve around the most engaging definition of the Cyberpunk literary genre. Hich tech and low life is usually what defines most of the characters in the Cybepunk novels like neuromancer or Snow crash or games like cyberpunk 2077. See for example a typical cyberpunk city from the movie Total Recall : hi-tec_lo-life_city Crowded megalopolis, sprawls teeming with urban tribes, smart drugs, synth music, virtual sex, transhumans, hackers, netrunners, razor girls… Antiheroes in the lowest layers of the city that turn into gods when they access the net. Technology blends with the underground.

Power Loader Class I Operator – Heavy Weapon Docking T-shirt.

Power Loader Operator T-shirt

 

New design based on the movie Aliens.

Get it in the US shop or Get it in the EU shop

Some months ago I had a similar design that went out of the shop. Now, a new version comes in based in my own redesign and the nice reviews and suggestions by my “friends” in my facebook page. Love you all 😉

A working t-shirt for Colonial Marines certified as PWL Class I operators aboard the USS Sulaco.

For those of us who had the chance to watch Aliens back in 1986, the vision of the Power Loader was something hard to forget. Later came Matrix Revolutions and Avatar with even more impressing exoskeletons, but everything has his time and in my case the Power loader left the most vivid impression.

Printed in durable vinyl

As with all my designs the product is printed in vinyl so it won’t fade with washing (see printing methods in new tab).

We got you covered. Many products to choose

T-shirts, long sleeves, and hoodies are available for both men and women. Plus sizes too.

Cyberpunk 2077 teaser

CD Projekt has distributed the first teaser of Cyberpunk 2077, wich will be released “once it is ready”.

CD Projekt Red studio head Adam Badowski explains what the trailer is about:

The teaser shows how the Psycho Squad might acquire a new member. The Psycho Squad specializes in combating “psychos” – individuals who overuse implants and substances that boost or otherwise alter the human body. There comes a point when they overdose on these innovations, and their bodies start to rebel against their biological body parts as well as against all things organic around them. Simply put, they start killing people, who they now derisively call “meatbags.”

When a psycho goes on the rampage, strange things can happen. There’s going to be a lot of carnage, so the psycho might be taken down by regular police, but they’re not always able to get the job done. When things spin out of control, they call in MAX-TAC (Maximum Force Tactical Division), popularly called the ‘Psycho Squad’. And these guys are exceptional; these guys are crack troops. The fact that they’re proud of that name tells you a bit about their mindset. They wear a badge with their official emblem on their right sleeve, but their left is reserved for their unofficial Psycho Squad emblem. It’s primitively made and the image itself is on the crude side of things. It’s not unlike a badge special force operators might make and wear to distinguish themselves from the ranks of grunts in any theater of war.

New site redesign goes live ready or not

I’ve been wanting to change the design of the site for a long time, mainly to address some problems that many people had using it and I felt that the site needed a face-lift  not for  aesthetic reasons but for usability and to unclutter the space. Usually when sites are redesigned, people behind the site hire somebody and launch a more impressive well finished site…not my case :-). I’m doing everything myself although the fact is that I don’t have much time and I loose steam time and again. So, although it’s not still finished and I want to make a lot of retouching I have decided to put it online with the basics and keep tweaking it. And yes, I still have to adapt the blog template to the new look.

Comments are welcome.
