Konami Code Tshirt

Konami tshirt design
I’m a bit fussy at shopping for tshirts and with no upcoming Frightened Rabbit gigs to give me a reason to order my Frightened Rabbit tshirt design I decided to complete another idea that I came up with a while ago and get my Konami code tshirt printed instead. It turned out cheaper than getting a cool tshirt from H&M or Topshop thanks to on-demand printing from Spreadshirt and I think that the result was pretty cool – what do you think?

Shane Koyczan and the Short Story Long


Last week I clicked through a genre of music in Bandcamp, listened through a bunch of albums and found one I really liked, something that happens to me most days to be honest. But the artist was one that I realised I was reading about synchronously in another tab as I started listening to the band – spoken word poet Shane Koyczan, who appeared at this year’s TED talks.

The album is all about bullying and growing up and mental health and self and is really worth a listen – the track “Remember How We Forgot” is a truly beautiful song.
