The Gene Wilder Conspiracy: t-shirts will happen!

AFTER READING THIS INTELLIGENT, MOUTH-FOAMY RANT, CHECK OUT SHIRTS NOW AVAILABLE AT WIREANDTWINE.COM. . GET YOUR T-SHIRTS. TUBULAR.

What. is. with. remaking all of the genius gene wilder movies? What?!? I ask you.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Producers, and now Young Frankenstein is on broadway. The Producers went the broadway and THEN to the SCREEN. Stop the madness, I say. What's next? Blazing Saddles?
Gene Wilder is amazing. Peoples need to stop marker-ing over his work with sub-par shit, or rather anything at all.
Go rent one of these films or, better yet, go convince your local art house movie theatre to do a retrospective.

{oh my god I think I'm making t-shirts...}

{yep... I'm making t-shirts}



{no, there's really NOT a more efficient use of my time at this particular moment...}

....................................................................................


Okay, so here goes:
If you feel the gene-wilder-love and want a t-shirt like-such-as the above, contact (vaganthead@gmail.com, size too) and I will take subscriptions and get a printing done. I'm thinking about $15 + shipping.
If you're not sure, go watch the original and the new charlie and the chocolate factory back to back and get back to me.

ORDER GOES INTO THE SHOP MIDWEEK! GET YOUR ORDERS IN BETWIXT NOW AND THEN.
paypal info forthcoming for interested parties.


Thanks for your interest! Such love for the Gene!

{UPDATE: First guerilla style limited edition printing of these shirts went from worrying about making the 12 t-shirt minimum to receiving orders in my inbox from word of mouth that stretched around the world. Printing is now placed in the able hands of the kind folks at wireandtwine.com where the movement is still growing!}

Oh My God!

Preach it sister!

Gene Wilder makes me a little hot and bothered (as does Steve Martin and also Peter Sellers.)

RAWR!

Remakes are often so silly. It is just like listening to a crappy cover song that is only "better" because technology has improved, though the artistry or general take on the material is pedantic, benal, and lacks any of the creativity of the original!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ummm... i might be interested in a shirt, after i make my own WWMBD? shirt.
That's What Would Mark Bittman Do, for the uninitiated.
