Derby #58 Cyberpub: You should be honored by my lateness


#1

Say anything, right? Just be nice about it! As always, friendly derby discussion is welcome too. :slight_smile:

No quotes because I’m out of touch with pop culture right now. >_<;


#2

but your title is the awesomeness.

all hail spryte. :slight_smile:

Up next: Derby #58: Work

Hey, where are you right now? If you’re at work, you’re surrounded by inspiration for this week’s theme. It’s work, Morrissey’s least favorite four-letter word, every bit as inevitable as death and taxes and sometimes even more humiliating. From the thrill of payday to the agony of mandatory meetings, from clock-in to clock out, from the deepest sewer to the highest skyscraper, work has a billion stories to tell. Find a good one and make a shirt out of it.

RESTRICTIONS:
Text is allowed this week, but only if accompanied by graphics. In other words, no slogan-only shirts. But text can be a major element of your design.


#4

It’s a Kanye West quote from Stronger. ^_~


#5

Hi Spryte! How’s the jobbie treating you?


#6

You could just post the whole song. Although I think references to ‘harder faster stronger blahblah’ have been covered in at least two Cyberpubs. But it doesn’t get much more pop culture than Kanye:
*
Now that that don’t kill me,
Can only make me stronger.
I need you to hurry up now
'Cause I can’t wait much longer.
I know I got to be right now
‘Cause I can’t get much wronger.
Man, I been waitin’ all night now,
That’s how long I’ve been on ya.

I need you right now,
I need you right now.

Let’s get lost tonight,
You can be my black Kate Moss tonight.
Play secretary, I’m the boss tonight,
And you don’t give a fck what they all say right
Awesome, the Christian in Christian Dior,
Damn, they don’t make 'em like this anymore,
I ask 'cause I’m not sure,
Do anybody make real sh
t anymore?
Bow in the presence of greatness
'Cause right now thou hast forsaken us.
You should be honored by my lateness,
That I would even show up to this fake sht.
So go ahead, go nuts, go ape sh
t,
Especially in my Pastelle, or my Bape sh*t,
Act like you can’t tell who made this,
New gospel, homey, Take Six, and take this…haters.

[chorus]

I need you right now,
I need you right now.

Me like it.

I don’t know if you got a man or not,
If you made plans or not,
If God put me in your plans or not,
I’m trippin’, this drink got me sayin’ a lot.
But I know that God put you in front of me,
So how the hell could you front on me?
There’s a thousand yous, there’s only one of me.
I’m trippin’, I’m caught up in the moment, right
‘Cause it’s Louis Vuitton Don night,
So we gon’ do everything that Kan like,
Heard they do anything for a Klondike,
Well, I’d do anything for a blonde dyke.
And she’ll do anything for the limelight,
And we’ll do anything when the time’s right,
Uh, baby, you’re makin’ it
Harder, better, faster, stronger,

Now that don’t kill me,
Can only make me stronger, oh!
I need you to hurry up now, oh!
'Cause I can’t wait much longer, oh!
I know I got to be right now, oh!
‘Cause I can’t get much wronger, oh!
Man, I been waitin’ all night now,
That’s how long I’ve been on ya.

I need you right now,
I need you right now.

You know how long I’ve been on ya,
Since Prince was on Apollonia,
Since OJ had Isotoners,
Don’t act like I never told ya.[x 5 or so]

Ugh, baby, you’re makin’ it
Harder, better, faster, stronger.

[chorus]

I need you right now [x like 4]

You know how long I’ve been on ya,
Since Prince was on Apollonia,
Since OJ had Isotoners,
Don’t act like I never told ya.
Don’t act like I never told ya.
*
etc.
Wait a minute…Spryte, have you really been on me that long?!


#7

Yeah, but I didn’t feel the rest of the lyrics fit, heh.

As for the other cyberpub with a similar name, that was from the original Daft Punk, technically.

It’s been a long couple days and I just got home. Gimme a break. ^_~


#8

No, sorry. I’ve been on a Brit lately, or rather wishing I was, lol.


#9

Doing great! I can’t think of anything to do for this derby though. Well, I was considering a teacher dressed in a Halloween costume (skirt) with one of her students trying to lift up the skirt (from experience), but I don’t know how to make that a wearable design. ^_^;


#10

Oh, no, the rest of the lyrics are totally appropriate! Now I have a mental image of you strolling in with womenz on your arms and Gucci shoes and bling the size of your head. And you’re showering your Cyberpubber fans with Dom.

I used to hate what Kanye did to the song, because I so dearly loved the Daft Punk original.
But the Kanye West version grew on me for some reason.

Listen friend: I’m just honored that you would even show up to this fake sh*t.


#11

Yeah, same. And it grew on me too.

LO**L!


#12

You should start collecting quotes from your students. :wink:


#13

Does anyone else think that zombies or other souless automatons are particularly appropriate for ths weeks derby?


#14

do you mean as subject matter or as designers?


#15

zing!


#16

Like all the zombie workers cornering the boss and moaning, “Raise”? I think that would be a wonderful shirt.


#17

That would be evil. I just might do it!


#18

Actually a tomb stone with a hole in the ground… the tomb stone reads… wait, lemme conceptualize it first and then post it here…

#19

That would be awesome. :slight_smile:


#20

I’m not entering until later today… wife is doing bills on the Illustrator computer, and I can’t exactly kick her off to do a shirt design.
