I decided to get all Busted Tees up in the Multiplex Store’s newly re-opened T-shirt section, so if you’re feeling a little bit bored and want to see some catalog-style drawings of the Multiplex gang (not just the girls), go window shop for shirts.
I tried my best to make the shirts actually look like the real shirts (color-wise, length of sleeves, size of the imprint, etc.), but obviously they’re not going to be spot-on.
In light of that, I would like to get some real product photos of the shirts, so if you order a shirt and e-mail me a photo of yourself wearing it, I’ll give you a $2 coupon code for the Multiplex Store* — whether I can use it or not! (It should be as large as possible, so I can crop it down to an image about 600 pixels square. Half-way decent lighting is kinda important.)
If you already have a Multiplex shirt, yes, it does need to be a NEW order (this week), because I need them to be from the current printer.
This offer stands at least September 13th or I have enough photos, whichever comes later. Limit one coupon per customer.
* With Multiplex: There and Back Again (Book Two) coming out in a few short months, I’m sure you can think of something to use that coupon code on.
Those of you who have visted the Multiplex Store recently may have noticed a distinct lack of T-shirts in them. Mostly, this was because my old DTG shirt printer went out of business. Partly, this was because I’m lazy swamped with work this summer. But now that I’ve signed up with a new printer and have the new (responsive!) store design, they are back.
But wait! There’s more! There’s also one new design, featuring actual characters from the comic! I call it the Clerks shirt:
All of the shirt shirts are priced from $17.99 — for now. 2XL and larger sizes are a little higher. Men’s shirts are available from XS/Youth Large up to 5XL; ladies shirts come in XS and go up to 2XL. (I’m just passing the additional wholesale costs of the shirts on for those, sorry. I’m offering every size my printer keeps in stock, as well, so I’m sorry if you want a larger size than that.)
Shipping is $5$4 per shirt (in the US) until I can afford a better shipping estimator plug-in for the shop.
ALSO, you can now register or log into the Multiplex Store using your Facebook, Twitter or Google accounts. For you people (like me) who are too lazy to fill out forms and/or too dumb to remember yet another password.
Once again, the Store has been completely rebuilt recently, so please let me know if you spot any bugs!
From the Toronto International Film Festival YouTube comes a trailer for Hayao Miyazaki’s next, The Wind Rises, a “decade-spanning epic… inspired by the true stories of Jiro Horikoshi, visionary designer of one the most beautiful airplanes in history—the famed Zero fighter—and the poet Tatsuo Hori, whose verses are brought to life by the vivid animation of Studio Ghibli.”
The trailer is a thing of beauty, and while it’s been online for a little while, this one has subtitles for those of us who don’t know Japanese.
The film premieres at TIFF next month, naturally. There is no regular theatrical release date yet, and with the subject matter, I wouldn’t hold my breath unless an Academy Award nomination gets it some attention. But who knows?
My brother said it best on the Twitters: “if you told me yesterday I’d be excited to see a movie about a guy who falls in love with his phone I would have said you’re crazy”… And, seriously: that’s the premise: Joaquin Phoenix falls in love with Siri (more or less). But Her looks surprisingly engaging, even with that weird premise.
Being John Malkovich and Where the Wild Things Are director Spike Jonze wrote and directs Her, which comes out on November 20, 2013. Just shy of the major Oscarbait dumping grounds, but close enough that the distributor thinks it might be a contender for something.
Scarlett Johansson plays his phone, while Amy Adams and Rooney Mara round out the cast.
