    So easy a caveman can do it.

    hahaha....

    I had a crazy idea. To have a really funny banner to have for when we are handing out CD's. I came up with this......

    ..If we did use it I think at the very least it would bring people over....

    (I may have infringed on some sort of copyright, but it was totally worth it!)


    cheers,

    p.s. I made it myself! too!

    That... is FREAKIN HILARIOUS

    Not sure about copyright issues... but since we're a small local gig and we have no real money (so we can't really be sued for much, just forced to take it down and never use it again) I say we try to get it printed somewhere!

    Problem is, printing banners is hella expensive... so I'll leave that to your devices. : )

    Re: So easy a caveman can do it.

    thanks. I had a really hard time editing the background away from the real one, so I could do this. (if you zoom in on his arm, you can kinda see some pixels, but I suppose someone good at blurring could fix that.)


    I think it would be awesome to get this printed. But, funnylookinhat does have a point. Banners are really expensive. Think system76 or someone would be willing to pitch in, because it's so funny?

    Maybe not a banner but use it more like letterhead then add basic instructions, URLs, etc... This would allow you to include one with each CD and heck, even post 'em in public places to drive membership!

    Love the graphic btw!

    Just a thought...

    Re: So easy a caveman can do it.

    Hi, I just signed up for this list.

    Good idea! I like it too.

    Regards copyright issue; all that is needed is to ask Geico for permission. If it is given then there is no copyright issue. They might see it as a win-win situation. Esp if a "small" "Image used by permission of Geico" exclamatory is placed at the bottom edge of the picture. They are, witness the zillions of TV ads, obviously interested in getting their name recognized everywhere.

    Never underestimate the power of asking.

    Of course they might say no too. While that might be dissapointing; it isn't the end of the world. And Ubuntu / OSS people "respect" others' "real" rights. Don't we?

    In which case, change it... to something without the pic and text... some example texts perhaps:

    "Add you'ser." with a picture of popcorn?

    "Unsafe without you'sers."

    "Certified Safe for all you'sers."

    "So easy a you'ser can do it."

    The phrase "you'ser" is copyright Nelson Ingersoll, 2007; and is licensed for public and private use without restriction.
