Visionaries #1 - Edward R. Murrow - The Fall Of Television
Designed by LucanIndustries
First in a series of shirts dedicated to people in history we should have listened harder to. "Edward R Murrow":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_R_Murrow was a revolutionary, a gentleman, a fighter and a fine dresser. He saw the horrors we faced through misuse of televised media more vividly than most. If the visual treats of the box were upsetting him in the '50s then he'd be completely shattered today.... It's a halftone graphic based on an image of him smoking a cigarette in a dandy suit, but made from the contents of a smashed television I photographed after throwing it off a silo in Collingwood. With some words and circles and fluff and jazz. Really does look better 8 feet tall. !http://images-0.redbubble.net/img/art/size:large/view:main/3510345-2-untitled.jpg! !http://images-1.redbubble.net/img/art/size:large/view:main/3510359-2-untitled.jpg! “Just once in a while, let us exalt the importance of ideas and information. Let us dream to the extent of saying that on a given Sunday night the time normally occupied by Ed Sullivan is given over to a clinical survey on the state of American education. And a week or two later, the time normally used by Steve Allen is devoted to a thorough-going study of American policy in the Middle East. Would the corporate image of their respective sponsors be damaged? Would the shareholders rise up in their wrath and complain? *Would anything happen other than a few million people would have received a little illumination on subjects that may well determine the future of this country and therefore the future of the corporations?* To those who say, “People wouldn’t look, they wouldn’t be interested they’re too complacent, indifferent and insulated” I can only reply: There is, in one reporter’s opinion considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? *Because if they are right and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach. It can illuminate and it can even inspire.* But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it. towards those ends. *Otherwise, it is merely wires and lights, in a box.* Good night, and good luck." *Edward R Murrow*

Horrible

by Bryan E. on Nov 18, 2017

Ordered 2 shirts. 1 the print was so dark it lacked and definition. Just a large blob of color. The other on was ok, the the fabric is poor. It hangs and stretches under it's own weight so looses shape. Would never order again. Would return but don't want to pay for return shipping further spending money for a poor product. Sorry redbubble.
