We've added some fantastic retail partners this past season!
One of our favorite things to do on vacation to check out local science museums. Seriously, aside from comic book conventions and craft shows, science museums are where you are most likely to find us, nerding out and playing with all the things. So we are absolutely thrilled to announce that our Octo-Pi Mathematics and Penguin Science T-shirts are now available at the Science Museum of Minnesota!
A small selection of our neckties can now also be found at Comics Unlimitedin Westminster, CA. We first met them at Wondercon this year when they were running a fundraiser for theComic Book Legal Defense Fund, which helps protect the First Amendment rights of comics art creators, publishers and retailers. They are a great local comic shop, doing their part to help the comics community!
Seahorses are magnificent creatures. The scientific name for their
genus "Hippocampus" comes from the Ancient Greek "hippos" meaning
"horse" and "kampos" meaning "sea monster". We like to picture the Seahorse Roboticus as tiny mechanical sea monsters floating gently along the clockwork mechanikelp.
There's nothing worse than being invited to a fancy dinner party in the
forest and realizing you have nothing to wear. And you just know that
afterwards, the rabbit and the owl are going to want to go out to that
club in the hollowed-out oak tree and you certainly don't want to be
under-dressed. Now you can impress them with your squirrelly elegance
in our Squirrel Damask Necktie.
Suffice it to say, my interest was piqued. Soon after, I read Margaret Cheney's biography "Tesla: Man Out of Time" and became fascinated with the gentleman engineer, his visionary work and crazypants OCD. So today, we're wearing our Tesla Stardust tees and singing our own geek karaoke remix in salute to the rock star scientist who quite literally made the world a brighter place.
Tesla played with sparks, jamming good with coils and lightning and signals from Mars He built with both hands but made it too far Became the Wizard man, then we were Tesla's fans
Tesla really shined, gray blue eyes and dapper hairdo Like some cat from Smiljan, He could shock 'em with current, he could blind 'em with flash He came on so brilliant man, well heeled but wouldn't shake hands
But where was his death ray when Edison tried to steal our volts No A/C power to light us So bankers messed with his plans and wireless energy was canned
Tesla lived out of time, giving us a better future The world was too crass He was the nazz, with a mind sharp as glass He took it all too far, but boy could he play with sparks
With only love for his pigeons, Tesla got lost into his mind Like an electric messiah Though the years have killed the man, his genius still stands
