Barack Obama t-shirt from 4 hour world

Barack Obama t-shirt from 4 hour world

Everyone needs a place to be for the inaugural and something to wear!

Personally, I don’t need to be in Washington on Tuesday; the natural cathedrals of the Grand Canyon or Yosemite or Yellterry_allen_1_2owstone would be preferred, and listening to the actual festivities and address at the gracious and historic Ahwahnee Lodge while gazing up at Half Dome would be ideal. Honestly, I don’t want to see it at all; I just want to hear it. Hence how awesome that “Trees,” a UC San Diego’s art installation  by Terry Allen which stand in the eucalyptus grove between  the library and the faculty club, will offer a live PBS broadcast. (Jeff Kaiser, if I can’t join you there,  please go for me! And if I can make it, how about we do some yoga then drink some tea and cap it off with some whisky older than us!)

And what more do you need than this way cool t-shirt to wear for the inaugural? Local artist Sean Kirkpatrick has come up with this design and it’s available in different colors and styles here as well as  other designs–I’m partial to James Brown and bringing more funk to every house! They also have a video showcase:

So today I’m cleaning house (aren’t we all?) and listening to the big celebration in Washington on KCRW, an affiliate. Soon I hope to connect with Sean and pick up t-shirts for everyone in my family! Or I can pick them up at Reds Cafe, 211 Helena Ave, Santa Barbara. They’re also available at my favorite Ventucky store, Wild Planet, in downtown Ventucky on Main Street across from the movie thater. 560 E Main St Ventura, CA 93001 (805) 643-5238 Get directions

    I saw a very comprehensive documentary on the President-elect last night. You couldn’t hope for a smarter person or a more well-intentioned one in the job. It’s also one of the most powerful elected positions in the world. So we can assume that if he can’t effect fundamental long term positive change that reform from inside the system just isn’t possible. Which leaves one more option. It will be very interesting.

    i agree with your analysis, paul, that if barack obama is not successful, the US will implode and explode; i don’t think the world will necessarily follow but those countries which have bought into the nightmare of the “American Dream” will struggle as we have

    What a fantastic design for a T-shirt. I love it. I really loved watching the new First Family groove to Stevie Wonder! I grooved along with them. It was fantastic.
