So, EPI the Photoshop guru and YT the Look-Over-the-Shoulder-and-Pontificate guru have been busy little beavers all weekend, creating a selection of products to load on the shelves of our Cafepress Online Store.
Mindful of the enthusiasm that so many of you expressed about the Helvítis Fokking Fokk!! slogan, we’ve created a number of items featuring those immortal words that so succinctly sum up the mood of so many of us up here on this barren rock. The words that Morgunblaðið saw reason to dissect thus in its cultural supplement this weekend: “Behind them is a complex mood. No political demand is at the forefront, no technical implementation of the catastrophe, just a rank indignation: How could I stand by and just let the insanity happen?” Cor, and here we just thought it was a good slogan.
Anyway, our merchandise featuring this rank indignation includes, but is not limited to:
Men’s basic T-shirt, USD 24.99*
Sassy women’s tee, with short or long sleeves, from USD 24.99*
Helvítis Fokking Fokk red on black tees, women’s or men’s, from USD 24.99
Helvítis Fokking Fokk hooded sweat, white or gray, USD 47.99*
Helvítis Fokking Fokk messenger bag, fits your laptop! USD 24.99
And because, well, we just couldn’t stop, we also give you a selection of T-shirts with our [current] winter banner which features a painting by EPI. Including, but not limited to:
Women’s tank top, USD 21.99*
A canvas tote bag with our autumn banner, USD 17.99*
Okay, then! Do make sure you check out the other items in our store … and make no mistake, we had so much fun with this, we’ll soon be adding more stuff!
* Please note that the products listed above marked with an asterisk have the Weather Report website address printed on the back. You can preview both front and back views of the products in the store.
WE DID TAKE TIME TO GO OUT IN THE WEATHER
Including the Saturday demonstration yesterday, on Austurvöllur, which was great. Three electrifying speeches, all very different, all very good. From now on the number of demonstrations will be increased and will take place outside the parliament building while parliament is in session. More citizens’ meetings are also in the pipelines, including one tomorrow evening at the Háskólabíó Cinema, where there will be two foreign speakers: Robert Wade, professor of economics at London School of Economics, and Raffaella Tenconi, an economist with Straumur Investment Bank in London. No doubt it will be good. This is history in the making, my friends, and being part of it feels momentous. The only thing I can equate it with is when I was living in Germany during the collapse of the Berlin Wall. But, yes, the weather: yesterday it got rapidly colder, and today we had temps just below the freezing mark. Not that it mattered: it was calm, and therefore beautiful. Currently -1°C [30F] and the days are getting noticeably longer – sunrise this morning was at 11.03 and sunset this afternoon at 4.09.
