wonder how much i can get on ebay for it. $15 seems pretty low, considering sp is all about the money and so is hot topic.

good call.

It's an okay shirt design, if someone bought it for me I'd probably wear it. The only really awesome shirt this era has been the drifter one though, the next pumpkins era really needs some more respectable artwork.

That's funny...I just saw that at hot topic 2 hrs. ago.. No vinyls ... sold out everywhere, I asked..

Hot topic always has shitty t-shirt designs.. they look all generic and shit..

.....then again it's better than buying a $40 shirt at their little merch. stands..

psssh. some of you think that shirt is bad? if one is trying not to look weird at school / work / wherever...let's consider some designs of SP shirts past...

the Adore shirts were pretty strange...

anyway, all I'm saying is compared to some other designs that have come out, that one for that Hot Topic shirt could be worse.

also I came across this site while looking around...

I like all those better (excluding corgan one obv.) I didn't say the shirt was bad I said hot topic shirts in general were generic..they look cheap and that makes their designs look even worse than they already are... I don't know what it is about them, but I have always hated them.

I seen another one in black and white..but it was on the floor and I didn't feel like picking it up so I don't know if it was the same design or not.. + someone was getting caught shoplifting so my attention was directed else where..

this blows the new one out of the water

I love the Holy War shirt, but I dunno if it's one I could wear in public to be honest.

I kinda like this new Hot Topic shirt though too in all honesty.

12-23-2007, 11:09 PM
I don't mind it. I think it's pretty cool, and for advertising it's wonderful. This is the kind of the thing all the kids are into these days (I say this with confidence because, after all, I am one) It's not necessarily my cup o' tea, but I could see myself buying it for only $15.

Paris is on Netphoria...duh.

And about wearing the Holy War out in public...I was getting off an elevator with friends and I thought it would be comical to wait RIGHT on the door, so when the door would open, the people outside it would feel akward. Well there was this girl whose height just reached the skelton "Mary" and when the door open she screamed in fear and goes, "Your shirt is spooky" haha I found this funny.

I like the shirt.. I don't get why you wouldn't want to where it in public.. especially considering the phrases that I see on shirts in an average day... i.e:

"jingle my juicy balls"-juicy couture
"He love the cock--->"-unknown
"your boyfriend bought me this shirt"'-?

I'm pretty sure it was photoshopped...

Also, most girls that I know don't. Paris Hilton should not be taken as a representation of most girls. Thank God.

The only way for that to happen is for them to pay more money to someone who actually knows what the fuck they're doing...or bringing James back.

i used to work as a manager at a hot topic (yeah, yeah, i know, but it wasn't a bad job; i got to pick the music that we played everyday, haha) (i always feel like i should apologize for working there). Anyway, we were getting in a lot of 90's band shirts, and started up a section of them on the wall. We were often asked to email the headquarters with ideas of stuff we should carry, so I emailed and said they should sell some sp shirts, preferably the white angel and black devil shirts, or maybe something from the SD era. They emailed me back and said that no one was interested in sp anymore and they wouldn't sell. haha.

I remember I went in looking for a ZERO shirt when I was like... 13. This was 2004. The guy was like, "We just sold our last one a few days ago and we won't be ordering any more."

we were sort of the hot topic misfits; we didn't have any emo kids working there, no boys in mascara with the stupid hair, no goth chicks... we were mostly a bunch of indie rock nerds who made fun of the stuff we carried. (then again we all made use of the huge discount... i bought a lot of chucks and vans for practically nothing). I always played pumpkins, decemberists, the shins, depeche mode; none of that emo or hardcore stuff. When the managers had to go to the big management meetings, we never fit in with the other weirdos.

but yeah, i did my part to help the pumpkins, though it did no good really.
