Default T-shirt while juggle

Hey guys did any of you have some T-shirt with a nice phrases on it while juggle?

I would like to write on it: "Doing useless stuff, the hard way" (i read it in rec.juggling)

Any other ideas?

Juggling Sucks

Default Correct phrase

The correct phrase:

" Juggling is the hard way of doing the unnecessary."

(C) 1993 David A. Walbridge

If you want to put it on a tee shirt -- or anywhere else-- contact me.

Yo Dave, It's i nice phrase I wish i have created by myself
I am not going to sell any shirt with your phrases, just print one for my personal use and wear it when i juggle in street with friends (Not a real esibition but training and fun).

You can check the topic "T-shirt ideas" in newsgroup rec.juggling and write there that this is yours!

Default ahhh....ethics

Ethics.


It doesn't matter if you make one copy or a thousand. Copying of intellectual property ( slogans, jokes, music, art, designs) is wrong. I appreciate that you like my work; but that doesn't grant you any rights.

If you like a bit from my show, can you use it? No.

If you like a joke I wrote, can you have it? No.

Would you ever steal the clubs from prop bag? No.

But taking my work would hurt me much more.

My uniqueness is what sells. My show IS my character, intellect, personality & comedy. If you take that away, I'm just a fair 3 ball juggler.

You'll note that in my previous post I said to contact me if you wanted to make a copy. The offer still stands; perhaps we would both benefit.

PS I also teach classes on writing comedy with an emphasis on performance. Let me know if you'd like to be on the mailing list for class announcements

Hi Dave, i am afraid that cause to my bad english i can't explain as i wish. Don't know if i will use your slogan, but sure i will ask for your permission before. In my previous post this is not so clear, my fault. Just talking about the fatc that i would not sell your ideas. I know what you are talking about, my work (not juggling related) was copied a lot of time but to say the true I don't care very much about this. Otherwise, when someone ask me if he can use my photos or some particular graphic style I am very glad of this.

Sorry if i was not so clear.
Speak you,
Luca

Thanks for your thoughtful reply. Perhaps we should clone this board into Spanish, German and Russian?

Default Street shirt

Iíve seen multi-lingual shirts with all the word(s) for unicycle.
What about a p-net fund raiser tee with all the words for street performer?

PS MotionFest rocked.

I used to have a t-shirt that read "I am a professional. Do not try this at home."

My mother bought it for me from a catalogue. I think it had something to do with National Public Radio, but I never found out what the phrase was meant to really relate to, but it seemed quite appropriate for a street performer.

Anyone else ever see this shirt anywhere?

I have that shirt, except it's a sweatshirt. I think it was from the Signals catalogue. My mom bought it for me, too.
Foolishly,
Drew
