What Twitch is doing feels like the opposite of charity.
We’ve sold out, you guys. For the low, low price of around $20 and maybe some shipping, you can buy a Video Game Choo Choo t-shirt. Finally, right?
Here’s the deal: 50% of the money we make from these shirts goes to paying Brian, the guy who drew that lovely design. Considering how much we milk that thing, he’s really overdue for some reparations. The rest goes to site upkeep; we’re running this place at a pretty sizable loss, and it would be cool if that didn’t hurt as much. Hosting the podcast and the site costs around $35 a month, and only John has a regular paying job at the moment. Plus, we’ve gotta buy games!
Redbubble is super versatile, by the way. You can get a dude T-shirt (available in organic), a lady T-shirt (available in organic), a v-neck, a baseball shirt, a long sleeved shirt, a pullover hoodie, and/or a zipper hoodie in all sorts of colors! Or you can get a sticker, if you want our grinning visages on your car/laptop/dog!
So if you like this place, buy the shirt! Fly the colors! Ride the rails! Help us not be broke!
