I like the second t shirt too. Someone on the blog suggested the ONAN crest, which I think would be fantastic. Maybe for the back? It'd be great if someone drew it just for fun, if nothing else.


I really want to see someone's interpretation of this. I think it would be hilarious.

p.153 wrote:

I know there is another reference somewhere but I can't find it at the moment.

I think the t-shirt absolutely needs at least one long winded run-on endnote.

I'm joining the chorus for #2 - I love it. There are so very many possibilities for t-shirts referencing the book itself and some of the best have been mentioned - the O.N.A.N. crest; feral hamsters; E.T.A. gear; Eschaton; I also think a hurtling E.W.D. canister would be great and I can imagine that mothers might really love a t-shirt with The Toothless Predator. Given all of that, I think our t-shirt should definitely reflect the Infinite Summer experience and I really love using YDAU.

The other logo thought I had was the basic Infinite Summer in black, orange and blue with the tag line about 1000 pages divided by 92 days - with endnotes, of course!

I bought one Online yesterday. Wow, they had a lot to choose from. I got one that reads: "IJ, 1079. 388."

However, if someone in this group brings out another one, I'll buy one of those, too.

A footnoted message would be great!

Everyone seems behind the second T-shirt sketch provided by OverorExactly13YOA. The only thing is, the image doesn't display for me! Can someone please re-post it? I'm intrigued now.

Thanks,

I take it to be YDAU, the dates match this years dates, and most things seem to fit. Wikipedia seems less sure but I was confident enough that I recovered my diary:

I would buy this, if you sold them.

I really like the second design too. Personally - just in terms of my taste - I'm inclined to go for a t-shirt that's fairly simple. I understand the idea about having a long run-on footnote, but aesthetically speaking, I don't know that I'd want to wear a shirt that's overrun with information. The simpler the better, in my opinion. The t-shirt posted here: http://infinitesummer.org/archives/1122 ... mment-2399 is pretty amazing, I think.

Also, I much prefer YDAU to 2009, and I think it's cooler to say YDAU rather than Year of the Depend Adult Undergarment. Because I think of it as YDAU in my mind and that's how the characters refer to it.

I love the ETA shirt.

"I finished Infinite Jest and all I got was this lousy sense of accomplishment" might appeal to a certain sector of us.
