Boycott T-shirts

The Boycott Housing site is growing ever faster. They've attracted media attention. And they're selling T-shirts! Anyone out there want to make some stickers? You know, for bumpers.

T-shirts, bumber stickers, and media attention. A great foundation for any worthy cause.

I saw that shirt, and honestly think the message is weak--good cause or not. That aside, they got great exposure from that TV segment. I'm thinking that bumber stickers have more visibility, but when you see a Marin car plastered with stickers, what comes to mind--the fringe?

I was actually thinking of stickers to place on "For Sale" signs. My sarcasm was weak.

Hey, I like that idea: direct. Maybe something like "Marin PoS™, actual worth: (write in your price).

It's called activism. It works for the environmentalists.

The subject came up a a dinner party at our house this evening. One of the guests, who had to say that of course things won't go down here in Sonoma..(he's originally from Marin,Marinite) thought it was a poor idea. I didn't tell him I'd signed it a couple of weeks ago.

I'd like Mr Housing Bubble on a bumper sticker. I should have had my daughter design one and print it in her Graphic Arts class.

Cafe Press is a great site to do that.

Be careful with the bumper stickers...be prepared to see some damage on your car.

qt -

I'm preparing to wear my "Mr. Housing Bubble" T-shirt in my neighborhood tomorrow. I may even wear it to the Giants-A's game, too.

Should be a lotta fun.

And yesterday, while driving through town, my fiancee mentioned the Kelly Zito SF Chronicle article about the Boycott Housing site.

We had a good laugh.

She said, "Now?! They want to do it now? Isn't it a little late - what about two years ago?"

Probably nearly went up on the sidewalk I was laughing so hard... "wow, seems like everyone's had a 'lobotomy' lately about housing!"

The zombies are finally coming out of it!
