Disney can stop this at any time, right? The way they sue a family to oblivion for putting Spiderman on their kid's grave? But they don't.

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Disney can stop this at any time, right? The way they sue a family to oblivion for putting Spiderman on their kid's grave? But they don't.


Issuing cease and desist orders for knock off mandalorian merch on Facebook has a higher priority for the Disney legal team at the moment Jimmy the intern might get to it later.

I got one and they sent me a free mask.

I really need to send a cease and desist to all of the farkers putting an American flag design on a skull. I had this design YEARS before they started this shiat. My buddy at work had a band he called Ghost of America, and I was working on the design for him, until my job fired me. Difference id that I was taking a nice high res picture of a skull and using envelope mapping in Illustrator to have the flag match the contours of the skull. It was looking really great. But all of the farkers who have the flag on any kind of skull have stolen my farking design.

I really need to find that artwork and see if I can finish the job, it was actually looking pretty good, and this was back in 2003, so Illustrator has only gotten better since.

I recall a shiatty version of same back mid-80s (done with Windows 2.0?), for some buds who had a band. Theirs really sucked.

I got my first shirt last week, it looks like the rest come in this week. There was even a shirt for Trans activist Martha P Johnson. It was a good campaign.

I'm wagering the people who get mad at this are the same people that got all spazzy over a black storm trooper in the Force Awakens trailer.

Make a deal with a prominent LGBT group to sell or give out rainbow punisher masks, or let them use the symbol without licensing fees.

I guarantee the Venn diagram of resists and homophones is just a circle.

Haha, it's alright. I wasn't aware of this campaign until just now. It's too bad it was a limited run.
 
2020-07-13 8:23:25 PM  
Oops. Hadn't been to that site in a bit. Every campaign is done. Kinda short-sighted IMHO.

There is phone contact info on the page linked in previous posts. I'm calling tomorrow to ask why they aren't accepting new orders. Given the subject.... There is no point where you say, "alright, we now have enough money".

A white guy buying and wearing a BLM shirt in Kansas kinda does both.

Err, support, not fund I meant. Depending on where I go, that shirt is a target and I'll proudly wear it.

Just saying the BLM movement is highlighting some things that have needed attention for a long time. BLM the organization has some interesting origins and agendas.

This one was turning out pretty good, but if you're just to instigate shiat, fark off.

I'm aware. At a previous job, years ago, the two main kitchen managers for lunch and dinner were me (very white guy) and W (big black guy with gold caps and an obsession with the Twilight series). Great guy.

One shift he was late and I asked what was up. He said that he got pulled over for DWB and they ran him through a sobriety check/ breathalyzer. Keep in mind, W always drove the speed limit and used correct turn signals, etc.

A line assistant who was a white senior in highschool overheard this and asked, "what is DWB?". W told me to explain. I did, and the kid was dumbfounded. He thought we were making it up.

Last time this discussion cropped up, I talked about it with a co-worker and came to this conclusion: forget trying to get Disney to issue cease and desist orders. Instead, make the Punisher into everything that racists hate. How?

1) the Punisher finds love in the arms of a black man;
2) the Punisher dies saving his new lover from a racist cop;
3) the new lover - a gay, black man - become the Punisher

And there you go. Suddenly, the Punisher not only represents the people who need help right now, he represents everything that racists hate. And, as my co-worker pointed out, comics should be timely and topical.

I drive a Mazda CX-5, it's got a Punisher skull and a cap shield on the back and a couple Mass Effect decals. I probably don't have to tell you how it attracts the ladies.

A facial reconstruction of that skull would be goofy as fark.

It is a good thought, but skull imagery does not fit in too well with a peace movement.

Especially since it originally represents punishment, not peace.
