One style of shirt? What's up?
I figured out what sizes and styles are NOT popular. Now I just need to start printing shirts again. Help kick start the next round of printing and by investing in some 'Stock in Trusty' What's redeemable for a single T-shirt today might be worth two before you know it! Don't get your atoms in a bunch - yes.. for MY t shirt.

How are the shirts printed?
Each shirt is printed on a silk screen press with screens that I develop using darkroom techniques.

Are you going to ship my item?
A lot of time has passed and I don't have any of the more popular shirt sizes anymore. It became a problem. If I listed 12 Large shirts available I may have only printed ten successfully and so on. Keeping up with those mistakes cost me some feedback points and I apologize for that. I did end up fulfilling all orders long ago and hope I've learned from those mistakes. To ensure I can fulfill orders I will only list fewer items available than what I have on hand. Just as I am doing with the available 'Stock in TRUSTy'. When the initial orders are fulfilled I will list additional items.

Why American Apparel Shirts
They are nice.. they are comfortable, they wear extremely well. ...and they are made in the USA.. So few things are these days.. It's nice we can still crank out a t-shirt.

What about those paintings?
Check back! Check out this can o' worms.. http://www.yabbers.com/puppetbike/viewtopic.php?t=45&mforum=puppetbike

Other artwork?
I have ten pretty involved displays of retired puppets I've been working on. The 1st of which will be available at auction on eBay on New Years Day 2014

What about a mission to mars?
Considering the forum, I'll gloss over the details and just say this.. I would recommend a modular system. Send payload modules aboard two (min) heavy lift rockets into orbit and join them together. one is essentially a live/work space partially filled with a larger payload of water and additional liquid hydrogen fuel. Of course how much can one really bring$? The second module contains the astronauts and most of the support systems. Both mission modules are constructed in a cylindrical tube shape.. The tube is actually a thick polyethylene tank with a hollow interior for the mission astronauts. The tank and the water are both quantified for maximum radiation absorption / protection / use and reuse. The payload module with the additional (bagged)water would fill the large cylindrical, hollow tank that is that acts as of the passenger module after docking in orbit. To avoid the problems with windows they are all but removed in favor of panoramic interior displays that can double as control surfaces. On the way to mars the tube would be spun to create enough artificial gravity during the long flight to avoid significant bone loss, demineralization etc. . A series of external cameras would use a program to stitch the images together and create a view of what's outside the craft, or even a look out the kitchen window from home. A virtual back porch to the world. In general, the interior of spacecraft make even minimalist design seem a warm and cozy memory. to combat this it might be a good idea to put a cover over every possible control surface or any reminder that you are on a spacecraft. Something similar to an automated drapery cover. Stretchy covers could look nice as well as serve a function. A Command Module by day could instantly close any of the covers and create a cozy lounge at the end of a long day. Flight chairs would double as plush recliners. Use functional furniture that looks like it was designed for earth instead of a science fiction movie. The days things had to look a certain way because of machining constraints are gone. Advanced techniques and additive manufacturing give designers freedom to follow natural forms. Is it absurd to think a little wood veneer would psychologically improve a few large flat surfaces? Make sure you can see the plants and grow them in different areas if possible. Design the enclosure as if it were for a nice home instead of a lab. Try for 'Home Spacecraft Home'. The additional liquid hydrogen would be used for radiation shielding during the long flight and power the landing of the individual modules on the red planet where they would be rejoined. Perhaps the water in bags could drop in on a parachute or two and then be used to refill the exterior tanks after landing. Go against conventional wisdom and encourage relationship between astronauts. The best candidates would eventually show themselves. The interest in the program would increase and draw even more qualified candidates in what could become the ultimate journey for a couple .. or a couple couples. Getting along with less frustration would increase the likelihood of mission success. Despite the technical challenges there is still a strong desire to get there, so I'm just throwing this out there for the rocket scientists to copy 100%.. Just in case there's a mix up and I get selected for a mission. I've left out a few details, but it's a start. And another thing.. about the end of the movie Gravity. Consider this as an alternate ending. Sandra actually does see George out her window after here little dream that she saw him. Remarkably she is able to supply with additional oxygen and he hitches a ride all the way to the other space station on the exterior of her craft, but no matter how hard they try there is still no way to get him inside where he can return with her in the re-entry craft. George decides he's not being left behind and she's not going home alone. Even though Sandra at first hates the idea. She can't stop him and he tearfully rides (to his fiery fate) back to earth on the front side of her re-entry vehicle.. a real shooting star ending. ..For me.. that would have been the far more Hollywood ending.. The current one.. Not so much.. ... Just like a mission to mars.. Nobody asked me for my opinion. and when I try to give it they don't return my calls.

Stock in TRUSTy, is that a sound investment?
If you look at stocks managed by the SEC you'll see that by comparison futures in Puppet Bike have a sunny forecast with strong earning potential. Stock in TRUSTy definitely makes a handsome addition to any portfolio. jt

Product photos are a laugh..
At the risk of sounding lazy.. Semantics. I admit it.. I'm rushing to get things done. It's not easy getting it all done, but I'm trying to catch up. If we all waited for things to be nice and symmetrical we would be obsessing to the point to failing to begin. If you have a better pic that you've taken of one of my products and I use it. I'll send you one customized 'Stock in TRUSTy' to thank you for your efforts. ..Please send them in as they are really bad!
