And no, I’m not talking about putting goggles on your head and sticking wires through your jacket.
I’ve been looking for a good, tough, rain-resistant messenger bag to carry my books around in for a while now, after wearing out a series of temporary tote bags from clothing stores. I’ve had my eye on Think Geek’s Bag of Holding. I’ve been a proud Dungeons and Dragons player on and off since I was a boy, and I want that D20 logo.
The only problem is that it’s a Think Geek exclusive, and like many American companies they have an agreement with certain courier sevices guaranteeing them cheaper shipping within the USA at the cost of monumentally, ridiculously expensive shipping outside it. Think Geek now offers budget shipping to Australia for small parcels, but unfortunately this bag is not one of them. As of the time of writing it is on sale at 33% off (so get on it if you’re in the USA), but even so the shipping is significantly more expensive than the bag. I just can’t bring myself to do it. I never pay more for shipping than I do for the item, it’s one of my Rules.
So I was looking online, trawling for alternative bags that looked good and weren’t obviously poor quality, when I came upon this place: memetic tees.
I’m a bit of a sucker for cyberpunk designs on clothing when they’re done well. The only Kickstarter I’ve ever backed was the tabletop skirmish game Ghosts of Heifei, and I did it mainly to get a T-shirt. Sadly, most cyberpunk designs I’ve seen aren’t the greatest.
Memetic Tee’s designs look pretty flash to me, and the quality looks good too. I can’t vouch for them at all since I haven’t ordered anything (yet), but I’m pretty sure I see a cyber ninja hoodie somewhere in my future. Plus they ship to Australia at reasonable enough prices.
I just thought I’d share the site for any other sci-fi gamers or science fiction fans reading this who might be interested.
All the best and stay safe in the meat world,
