View Full Version : Dissensus - the T-shirt

(copied over from the hispters thread)

The unprompted thought popped into my head this morning that 'Hipsters: Scourge or Irrelevance?' would have to have a place in a hypothetical line of Dissensus T-shirts.

Any other thoughts (who was it who referred to something somebody had written the other day as 'the most Dissensus comment ever written'?)?

Suggestions so far:
"I AM A DEFENDER OF SIMON REYNOLD'S FACE"
"NUUM GENERAL"
and, for Zhao:
"I've got any number of African T-shirts that are infintely better than this emotionally-constipated European shit."

I think



It's sort of an awkward, moody non-sequitur of coffee / vanilla / chocolate / damp wood flavours, but strangely satisfying. Sort like of a Beckett play in beer format.

might well be one of the most Dissensian things I've ever read.

Also, "Q. WHO INVENTED ELVES".

That's a great Tim Finney quote. Something that used to really wind me up about Dissensus in its theory-heavy days was that whenever anyone started waxing theoretical about music they'd basically end up concluding that the music that they like is somehow fundamentally Good and Important and the music that they don't like is somehow fundamentally Bad and Redundant. If Theory is never going to challenge your existing way of thinking about things, what's the point?

I'd also like to see the labels on these items embroidered with 'Pointless, but it makes me chuckle to myself'

I had high hopes for the Thought line, but no matter how many cool&interesting shirts we add to the line, all we ever sell are the 'pointless' ones.
As for Politics - you must be having a laugh if you think you can sell a t shirt that doesn't reproduce some stupid news headline. Doesn't stop us trying mind you.
There's always potential for Art, Literature & Film shirts to sell. Not saying otherwise. However, shirts about a newly released movie will always have an advantage.
Nature shirts are our worst sellers. Surprising really because the designs are mind blowing.
I won't try to speak to the Miscellaneous shirts, they seem to be mostly subsumed in shirts to drink beer in. No wonder you get so many banal slogans doing well.
There's a market for the one-off, event-linked shirt, but it's our Music line that keeps us afloat really.

Anyone still see the refracted-beyond-legibility dissensus logo at the head of the page?

I saw a guy in a club once wearing a T-shirt with a Kierkegaard quote on it. It's like he was trying to proof himself against having sex ever again.

On second thoughts it reminds me of this one a bit:

which I wouldn't wear, as I don't do 'joke' T-shirts generally, but nonetheless quite like.

Really? Excellent, will definitely buy one off you.

That is good too, but I like the extra 'crushed dreams' component of your slogan. Made me laugh out loud.

POSH CUNTS WITH FUCKIN PONCEY T-SHIRTS ON

I would wear pretty much every sentence from that video as a t shirt

if I hadn't already decided on my epitaph being:

I took the cancer it didn't take me

or

Always get your revenge in first

(word to my Dad: his only business tip)

then I'd have something from that video

About the only thing we missed in a fairly successful trip to Sardinia was going here:
http://www.casagramscighilarza.org/ita/index2_ita.htm
and getting the T-shirt.

(Also, what's not to like about an island where Antonio Gramsci gets Piazzas named after him?)
