R.I.P T-ShirtHell

I'm done. I'm finished. I can't take the stupidity anymore, so I'm leaving and I'm taking my website with me. As of Tuesday, Feb 10, 2009, T-Shirt Hell will be no more.

No, I'm not selling out to some douchebag corporate entity. No, we're not being sued by any of the over 40 companies that have sent us cease and desists over the years. No, I'm not going to jail (yet) and no, it's not because of the economy. Although, the recent dip in sales certainly does make the idea easier to accept, even though we still sell over 3000 shirts a week.

I started this company in June of 2001, nearly 8 years ago, with the intention of producing the best satirical, the most controversial, the funniest t-shirts on the internet. Generally speaking, I feel I've accomplished that and am satisfied with what we've put out. I made a shitload of dough along the way. I've done cocaine off the better body parts of supermodels. I've even raped and killed a mountain panda in the hills of Shaanxi. But these perks are besides the point.

This is a sad, sad day.

There are no safety nets for small businesses, just the big corporations and banks. The IT industry alone saw 200,000 layoffs in the past five months. Except for a few exceptions (Nintendo, IBM, Amazon), this is just the start. If you're betting, put your money on ugly, because it's going to be ugly for a long time.

Kinda lame, though - by running a site like that, what do you expect?. Also, who's grabbing all the t-shirt designs before the site goes bunk? 8)
